DO NOT EDIT WITHOUT DIRECT PERMISSION FROM DALUVED1

Welcome

Ever wanted to create clothing for The Sims 3 but didn't know where to start? Well, this guide will take you from Start to Finish on CAS creation. You will learn how to clone a clothing package, remesh clothing and basic texturing skills as well!

Difficulty

  • This tutorial is written for beginners, however, some basic knowledge on how to use your imaging program is needed.
  • Keep in mind that the more intricate and detailed you want your finished product to be, the more tweaking and practice you'll need.

Programs Needed

====Creation Tools====

Paint Programs

  • Paint.net is one of a couple of programs that can be used to edit Sims 3 textures. Get it for free, here.
  • GIMP is another program that can be used to edit Sims 3 texture files. Find it here.
  • Photoshop is, perhaps, the most used paint program. However, the one drawback is that it is very expensive.
