First you need to download Dr. Pixels Bodyshop Mechanic at MTS2
Be sure that you have WINRAR installed. When you click download WinRar will ask if you want to OPEN or Save(covered in last tutorial)
Click OPEN



 
Click Extract
The Bodyshop mechanic must be placed in the Config folder in order for it to work. It is very easy to locate...instead of placing the item in Downloads(which is what you would normally do) The Config folder is located just above Downloads


Now that you have extracted the Mechanic you must install it.


Now that you have sucessfully installed the Mechanic you will need to install replacement lighting in order to get the most out of your new program.

When you click download WinRar will ask if you want to OPEN or Save(covered in last tutorial)

Click OPEN
The Lights must be placed with the bodyshop mechanic in the Config folder in order for it to work

















Now you can run the Mechanic
Click the dropdown box to adjust the lighting. I prefer the whXB lights since it seems to create a more natural look but test it out and find one that you like. Each time you make an adjustment in the Mechanic you must close the Bodyshop and reopen it in order for your change to appear.

How to Download Custom Content

Saturday, January 2, 2010

Before we begin you must have Winrar in order to extract the files.

First step is to go to a site and find your item(s) I am at LianaSims.
 I have never gotten a virus or had any problems with the items from Liana but just be wary of some of the other places since some custom content can crash your game.

















Click Download and when you a box like this will appear. I prefer to save it to my downloads folder and continue downloading instead of extracting my files all at once.















As you can see here the file will be saved to C:\Users\"Your name"\Downloads. This is not the Sims folder that contains downloads so if you stop now your items that you just downloaded will not appear.
Now go to your downloads folder and select all (ctrl+a) the items that you would like to extract then right click on the items and click extract here

















Magically the items appear as package files that are recognized by your game

Now the files can be moved to My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads where they can be enjoyed by your sims!

BodyShop Tips and Tricks

1 comments

By Pressing F3 while in the bodyshop you will get to move around the sim for better angles















By pressing F5 it changes the background color
*if you have the BodyShop Mechanic you can add background images and change the color













By pressing F6 the sim is in a great position for those creators who use the Replacement poses when creating it can be difficult to tell if the clothing is lined up properly













By pressing F8 the screen will zoom in on the sim and press F7 to zoom out again















By pressing F9 the sidebar will disappear leaving only your creation also handy for those close up pictures.
To create a picture of your computer screen for editing all you have to do is press the prt sc button on your keyboard (for laptops you press fn+prt sc) and then press ctrl+v in you paint program...Voila now you can edit your simmies picture

"I use the bodyshop mechanic to change both the lighting and poses of my sims.
When Downloading these tools be sure to unzip in the My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Config\ folder instead of downloads.

1. Download bodyshop mechanic here-
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=231443
2. Download lighting-
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=231443
3. Download Replacement poses-
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=231441
___________________________________
I simply use the prt screen and paste into photoshop to edit the backgrounds. I find high resolution pics for the backgrounds since those seem to turn out the best. I prefer photoshop since it allows me to use layers and not just one flat pic. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. :)
Hope that I helped.

Also I used this tutorial by Simfishwick to change my default upload picture:
