29th Oct 2011, 09:54 PM
Hi, I would like to make stuff for this game, Im a pretty good texture maker.. Ive made many mods for allot of games.. if someone could point me to a tutorial for sim modding Im sure I could create some cool stuff for the community here.. Ive created over 50 php mods and am reasonably good at programming.. Ive also created 100's of graphics for my old site..
Not many are modding for TSM game (thanks to those that are) but I could help make stuff if I had some instruction.

It really depends on what you want to do. I've found TSM modding is not much different from TS3 modding, so I'd suggest looking at those tutorials.
For TSM specific stuff, besides the stickies, there isn't much.
I wrote a tutorial, Grimís Medieval Custom Clothing Tutorial (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=457495), for making custom clothing using my part cloner. This will work for retexturing, or modeling cas parts, but object will require a different tool. I have had some sucess with accessing parts of objects, but it requires a slightly more advanced methodology.
For coding, all scripts are written in C# using .NET Framework 4. This can't be written with any Visual Studio version prior to 2010. I suggest Visual C# 2010 Express as a free IDE. Also, this thread,Advanced modding (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=439534), has information on creating valid DLLs for TSM.
