Default Is there any tutorial on how to make an existing object invisible that I can interact with in livemode?
Hi hope I found the right page and place.
I was looking to make/get an invisible version of the 'buyable beach towel'. If I use the vanishing object script I cannot interact with the item in live mode so was just wondering if there is a way to make an invisible version of an existing item.

If they're invisible, how can you click on it?

Like the invisible arm chair by ats3 and invisble dance floor/savier seller rugs, I would have to remember where I put it and click on the footprint(?)/item itself

I may regret this, but have to ask. Why would you want this? A dance floor makes sense to me. A towel no.

Makes sense to me. But I cannot tell you how to do it

Have you tried to transmogrify something invisible like these jogging marker ( https://modthesims.info/d/537593/jo...ack-marker.html) to a towel?

The markers are not clickable either. I'm not sure what the OP is asking because you can't click what you can't see. There's the invisible parking space, which they remove that parking bar, but likewise you can't click it in live mode. The cars will automatically be parked there. That's the point of invisible objects, to allow only autonomous actions.

The closest I can think of is the "marker" type such as the NPC marker, which is a tiny little + on the ground, so you can click it or the dance mod, which is a small square. Maybe transmogrify to these.

Hi I've tried that. When I click on the floor on where the marker is supposed to be I get the correct beach towel interaction options and all but my sim does that route fail action. Probably because the marker doesn't have the correct footprints and all.. Thank you!

I was trying to do this (https://modthesims.info/d/587661) to the beach towel. Even though this dance rug is invisible I can still click on the floor on where the rug is supposed to be and the interaction options show up.

So I made a clone of the towel and added a transparent texture but it shows up black in game. I saw other posts and it seems that this item doesn't have an alpha channel and I would have to manually add it or something.

I guess I'll have to search more or ask the people who made the usable invisible items.

Thanks!
