Help making clothes on TSR Workshop?!
Posted 20 April 2012 - 02:16 PM
So I've tried making a t-shirt before on The Sims Resource Workshop using guidance from a tutorial video on Youtube, I can't provide the video because the maker of the video cursed a few times. Below are the steps from the video.
Step 1: Create new project
Step 2: Select clothing -> young adult -> male -> everyday -> choose the skull and crossbones t-shirt
Step 3: Edit Project Name, leave the unique identifier and add a title and description
Step 4: Go to texture -> Stencil A -> Export -> save as a .dds file (Adobe photoshop required) -> Load up the exported Stencil -> New layer -> Create your design -> Flatten image -> File -> Save as -> .dds file -> click okay when notice comes up saying 'Alpha information will be lost' -> Go back to TSR Workshop -> Open Stencil A -> Import your .dds file -> File -> Export to Sims 3 pack -> Double click your sims 3 pack to install it
I followed all of these steps, however when I installed my sims 3 pack it would come up with the message saying "successfully installed", and it would appear in installed content. However, when I ran the game, it wasn't next to or replaced the skull and crossbones t-shirt as it should have done. I couldn't find it anywhere. I tried to install it again a good 3 times and every time I restarted my game and checked the clothes it just wasn't there.
I made an enquiry already on the forums asking about why my clothes hadn't installed, and someone replied saying the process in the video was not the correct process. I would really like to be able to make my own sweaters, t-shirts, shoes, anything, but mainly sweater and t-shirts.
If ANYBODY would be helpful enough to link me to a correct walkthrough or guide for making t-shirts or sweaters, or BOTH, I would be most grateful.
I'm not entirely sure of the version of the TSR Workshop the maker of the video used, but I can provide a print screen of it if anyone can work it out from that.

I was the one who responded to your other thread. As I said then, the process used in that video is not the correct way to make clothing for Sims3. If all you want to do is add a logo to clothing, which is what was happening in that video, then you'll want to read this tutorial . That uses an older version of Workshop, but can be adapted to the newer version of Workshop. It also uses the correct process and texture formats to give you clothing that is still recolorable after you add the logo, whereas the video did not do that. In the video the person's shirt was not able to be recolored at all -- you would have been stuck with the green color of the shirt.
If you are interested in doing more than just adding logos, check out this clothing tutorial. That uses a much more up to date version of Workshop so adapting it to the new Workshop version should be rather easy.
