Default Wallmasks made easy, Tutorial
For this tutorial, I'll be using:
-SimPE
-MilkShape 3D
-PaintShop Pro.
*This tutorial will not show how meshing works. Chances are, if you are looking at a tutorial about tips & trick for creating wallmasks, you already created your windows and/or doors meshes. *
(But it will surely show you stuff you already know, I am like that, I give more than you need...)

Is there a name for the tutorial? It starts with "For this tutorial".

Necroposting. I always used this method for wall masks.

I've never seen this thread before. May I suggest my mini-tutorial to edit the pie menus for custom foods?

Hello, I hope I'm not posting in a bad place with this - I just read this through to find the minitutorials and saw people have been discussing gimp. A while earlier I came across this mini-tutorial: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=510500 that uses gimp, but in what seemed to me a very clumsy and roundabout way for a very simple task. I wanted to write a reply to that thread with updated tips, but there was no way to reply to that thread and I didn't want to start a new one. So I thought of something else after reading this thread: is anyone interested in some mini-tutorials on gimping for simmers? I've only just started recolouring and retexturing objects, so I can't actually help with the more technical sides of things, but I could write down how-tos for simple things like making wall and floor textures using gimp, editing an alphamap (for example for lipstick) in gimp or recolouring from colour swatches in gimp. Is there an interest for how-tos like this?

@AnMal there was no reply button showing for you? That thread is open and you should be able to post on it.

There is always an interest for tutorials, especially up to date ones. Older ones have either had the programs changed making them more confusing or had pictures disappear.

hmm, you only have 2 posts, which may be why. Once you have 5 posts, try again.

... And here I am, after 5 posts, with a working reply button . And I come bearing links! I did what I should have done before posting first time around: a proper search outside MTS to see what was really missing. And after those searches I realised I don't really have to write up new tutorials, that would only be repeating what others have already done better. So, instread I post some links that could be of use for anyone who wants to start image editing in Gimp for siims purposes. Note that the information in the links may still be too advanced for you if you've never used an image editiing program- If you're all new to image editing you could join a Gimp forum to get the basic tips and tricks and some hand-holding first!

A general note: Most of the newer tutorials are written for Gimp 2.8, which is the version I use most myself and the one I specifically recommend for a beginner. 2.10 is out now but in its first shaky stages. If you have 2.10, not enough has changed to make it really confusing - you will find the general transformations (scale, shear, rotate, etc) under one tool icon and some of the menu items are labelled differently, but not so differently you can't figure out what is what. Also, when you look for tutorials on Gimp for sims online, it's better to look at tutorials written for sims 3 or 4, as those are usually written for Gimp 2.8. Sims 2 tutorials tend to be older and written for outdated Gimp versions and the actual image editing process is much the same no matter what version of the game you want to create for.

IaKoa's tutorials - Not one, but many tutorials, some usiing Gimp with good explanations. IaKoa also posted Pooklet's colours as Gimp curves, and gives a good explanation on how to use curve presets in Gimp. Tutorials were written for Gimp 2.8.
Making patterned walls in Gimp (for sims4) - Skip all the sims 4-specific parts and just watch the Gimp parts if you've never tried to create walls using Gimp. Useful and simply explained.
How to recolour a CAS item (for sims 4) in Gimp - describes a simple recolour made with Gimp. Again, good for beginners.
Recolouring using palette and colour swatches in Gimp - Another way to make recolours, a bit more involved than the first. This is much the same process I would use for the same type of project.
Adding shading/highlighting to a texture in Gimp - Something I've done a lot to make for example crown moulding for walls in Gimp. Easy enough tutorial to understand.

There are many more well written tutorials out there too, these are just some that I can recommend.

This is a really useful thread, but I noticed that some of the tutorials are actually threads with the tutorial as the first post. I think if the thread owner asks a moderator to move the thread to the tutorials forum suited to it's subject then the links to the tutorial show on the thread owners profile. This won't work for the offsite tutorials of course

I remember asking for some of my tutorials to be moved to appropriate sections (because I was hunting for that tutorials badge back in the day ), but mods didn't know where to put mine. So, they remained on the general board.

I didn't want proper tutorials, as they can go in the tutorials forum. Just ones that were in the middle of threads and could get lost.

Yea, I see the purpose, that was why I pointed out that the ones that are threads could go in the tutorials forum if moved. Of course, if nobody knows where to put the tutorials once written then this thread is a good spot to link them in.

I had another suggestion for the links in the first post, did you know that if you click on the # next to the post number then you get a link like below?

http://www.modthesims.info/showpost...88&postcount=39

That opens the post in a new tab in the browser.

I have one here about fixing general problems when playing UC - it is a sticky post (I was very flattered to see that ) - in the help section, but in case somebody else needs it: http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=614833 - if you want to add that one, Charity.

Thanks for the tip on post numbers.

Added the new tutorial.

Should I keep the tutorials here that are proper tutorials with their own threads or should I delete them?
