Default [SOLVED] Effects file in SimPe
Hi! Sorry for bothering with a stupid question, but I need to find the in-game object file to see his Effects/FX. I do not clearly understand how to find it through a SimPe. The objects are the sauna from Bon Voyage and the pool from the base game (it is not an object, does it have the Effect file?). Delete this post if I wrote in the wrong section.

You want to find the effects names? The easiest way to do that is clone the object then go to Test Lists. The effects list is the one with an instance of 8F. You can then reuse the effect. If you're trying to edit the effect itself, though, that's not currently possible.

Yes, that's what I need, but how do I find the name of the effect? How to do this "The easiest way to do that is clone the object then go to Test Lists"?

https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=3133512 - that will teach you how to clone an object. So follow these steps, clone the sauna, for example, and then you'll have a copy of the object that will be open in SimPE. On the right side of the screen, you'll see a Resource Tree. Scroll down to the bottom of that section. You'll see Text Lists (STR). Click that. You'll see a bunch of text lists. Scroll through, one will be called Effects or sometimes FX.
