The "wall-brickChimneyRedAged_base_txmt.5tm (cached) (0x4C8CC5C0)" on 8th line in bricks has a bump texture ready. Try cloning this one.

[QUOTE=pisceskat]Okay, I've followed all directions, and even tried to go back and find the bumpmap file... but my wall doesn't have one! =p I'm still getting a black/purple/pink wall in game... Here is my file... could you help me? ::pleads pitifully::[/QUOTE

Very nice texture file! The file you cloned originally doesn't have a bump map. Restart the process if you want to add a bump map, but try cloning one of the brick walls for the bump map. Most of them have one. I know the second one on my list, wall_brickChimneyRedAged_Base_txmt which is London's Red Chimney Bricks has a bump map.

[QUOTE=pisceskat]one other thing, I'm using instead of gimp or photoshop. do you know what the rgb equivalent is for that program? (looked for rgb in the tabs and didn't see it ^_^;;

forgive my noobishness m(_ _)m[/QUOTE

Ive never used, so I am not sure. I know on Gimp and Photoshop it can be found under Image - Mode in the menu. It might be similar. If it is like regular Paint, it doesn't have that option. You either get Black and White or Colors. If that is the case, just make sure it is on color.

Don't worry about being a noob! We've all been there. That's what makes this site so great. You can always find someone to help you out.

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I've been searching for one for ages.

I have just one question: do terrain paints work basically the same way as floors and walls? I started on a terrain paint and followed this tutorial in hopes that it was the same (I hope I didn't just ruin my game D: ).
They only differ at the last part, where for floors you'd be editing the XOBJ file so it wouldn't overwrite what you cloned it from. Since there's no XOBJ file I'm wondering how I should make sure that my new terrain doesn't save over it.

Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner, Sanus. It has been a busy week. I hadn't tried this with terrain paints before, but now I have. All you need to do is clone using the change description option and then edit the texture files. It will not overwrite the existing.

If you follow everything else it should work ok. Have you tried doing it and then using it in game? As I said some of the boxes can't be changed. Mine was when I did the tutorial, I think only because it was one of the options I used on the previous object I had cloned. Try doing it without it being checked. If it does not work then go in and clone a regular object and check the box. Then go back and do your floor. Some of the options you can change on regular objects are disabled when doing floors and walls.

Thank you for this tutorial! I found it very useful, up to a point.
I was making a wall, and I finished it, and I put it in my downloads folder for the anygamestarter (cause I use it for testing) and I cannot find it in game.
I looked through all the walls, in case I categorized it badly or something, but nothing.
Thankees muchly!

Hi, I finally got the wall to show up perfectly in game (after 8 hours of trying to use homecrafter which does not work on my computer) that I have been working on for 3 hours! I figured out the whole bump map thing, but now the thumbnail in game is black. It works fine when I use it to cover my wall, but I would just like to fix how it appears in the walls folder. How do I get the thumbnail to show up correctly?

Default Wall Recolor Problems
Thanks for the tutorial! I'm one of those that can't get Homecrafter to work. I've recolored one of the sidings from Apartment life, and everything looks fine in SimsPE. But, when I use it in the game I get a flashing pink wall. This is my first wall recolor, so I know it's probably something simple.

It's not replacing the original file, and I'm using a custom GUID. I don't think it had a bumpmap, but I might be wrong.

I've attached the file and would like some help. It'd be best if you explain your answers like I'm 5!

(Edit) and when I zoom out it fades into the Original floor! I got it to tile properly though!
