Ah ok! Well in that case I fixed it. The game path was set to my game's bin folder for some reason so I manually set it myself and now it opens without any errors. Thank you so much for the quick reply I'll keep you posted lol

I have noticed one oddity; the ripper rips 3D eyelashes, but I can't *save* a sim with them, in any format. It comes up with an error "Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection." I wouldn't mind, as I don't really need the eyelashes for what I'm ripping them for, but it is a little annoying when I forget and have to go back into the game and resave the sim without them

Please upload the eyelashes package so I can test.

Here are two

EDIT: god I'm so bloody dumb, sorry! Those two were a texture fix, not the actual mesh. Here is the actual lashes .

Is there a chance for this amazing tool to be made compatible with The Sims Medieval meshes too?

Medieval uses the same engine as TS3, but just changing the location don't work. Program won't crash, but loads empty model and throws errors that it cannot read VPXY from SASFullBuild2.package and cannot find the Rig.

I believe Medieval has different versions of some resources. I'm about to start working on this tool again, so I'll look into it.

I was just wondering, will source code for this tool be released at some point?

Asking because I noticed that source of TS4 version of the ripper is released to the public.

Hello! First off, please let me preface everything by saying THANK YOU SO MUCH for making this tool! I spent so long trying to figure out how to do this, and here, you have put in so much work, effort, and care into creating a tool that will allow us to export our Sims the way we want.

I do have a couple of questions however, and I apologize if they have already been asked (it is my first time actually posting a question on this site, so I'm still learning how everything works). By my understanding, Sims3Packs and their respective packages are still unable to be read, correct? (I have a sim that uses some CC, so it makes sense to me if some items are not appearing for this reason.)

However, it seems that even base game textures don't seem to be uploading quite properly? I have a base sim with base clothing, but the rendering is off. The shape of the clothes still comes up, but the texturing is not correct, or just missing entirely. I wonder if it has to do with using the Create A Style options?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I just want to make sure I am using the program correctly! Thank you!

Thanks!

From that pic my guess is that there's a texture that's not being resized correctly. If you're using 0.4.0, please try the test version I uploaded in comments a while ago - 0.4.2. I've attached it here too so you don't have to search. If the same problem is happening, please upload your save game and the sim troubleshooting info which you can save with the new 'Save Sim Troubleshooting Info' button.
Download - please read all instructions before downloading any files!

Version 0.5.0 is available, with preliminary support for The Sims Medieval. MTS isn't letting me upload it here so use this download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tN...iew?usp=sharing

First of all, super thanks for updating this amazing tool!

I've tested it for a while, mainly on adult male and female sims without cc and so far everything works great! The only minor glitches I've encountered were that ripper seems to shows sims with wrong clothing as first outfit, while the proper appearence is set as either 4th or 5th outfit. Also some parts appear invisible in the ripper view, but appear just fine once you rip the model (for example, the crown of the woman in the attached screenshots).

rigging works perfectly fine, and even without bone morphs the character looks identical! I attached a close-up of sim's face.

Thanks! They actually look a lot better than I thought from my very brief testing. I'll have to figure out what's up with the invisible parts, but I'm happy most of the patterns came out okay and the skin colors are closer than I thought.

I don't think TS3/TSM sim exports - the resource I use along with the sim outfits - specify the current outfit but I'll take another look when I get home in a few days.

The problem is that Steam uses different registry entries for its installs than the disk or Origin versions. I've looked it up and put in some code to detect Steam installations as well. This may need some tweaking for mixed installations but I need to know if it works at all. There's also a new button to manually add a game path if it doesn't work.

I've attached a new testing version for you to try before I upload an official new version. Please let me know if the automatic detection works.

The latest version for Steam should be 1.67. I think Steam does update automatically, but you should check that you're at 1.67.


Please forgive that it took me so long to get back to you. I am unlike you in that I am not an unstoppable force of nature and computer software legend! I fired up this mystical 0.4.2 of yours and I am amazed, it worked! At least on my test Fox Mulder..Dana Scully did not show up which is a little disconcerting. The new button worked a treat, instead of throwing up the error it restarted and ran through like a charm. I mistakenly clicked on a blank space and threw up an exception but when I clicked on Fox Mulder..*see attached screeny..VOILA! I get a 3D rotating image in A pose minus hair..a HUGE step forward! Thank you so much CmarNYC!

Sadly the auto detection didn't work but the manual input button did!

Though they say that there is no cure on earth for the poisoned tongue of the sycophant I hope you take my praise as more than simple blandishments..you have made possible here so many things that were just beyond reach before -mainly for Doctor Who fans to be sure in terms of my own investigative interest- but a fan is a fan and they are reason I'm here! This move will assist me in keeping dreams alive and smiles on faces, I should be most glad to appraise you of all I can achieve as a direct result of your amazing work. You humble me by being better than me, but you are something worthy to aspire to and that really is quite something to be! We love you CmarNYC, you are the wellspring from which we flow!

PS - I had to type this because I was so excited (Yays!) but I will do further testing xxx M

Hi! I wanted to first thank you so much for this! I also wanted to see if there were any possibilities of the ripper working with pets eventually?

Yes, I'll get the animal texturing working as I add more types of patterns.
