CAS Body Texture Map This package is a utility tool, do not run this in the game! (Well, you COULD, and get sims with funny lines all over them.)
This is a template I made that I use for making CAS clothing modifications. It maps the textures to the sim body right down to the MIP. It guides me to select exact halves and quadrants of a texture to flip, align textures at seams in the sim, and shows me exactly what will be seen and not seen. This is a work in progress.
In the package are two things. The template overlaid onto the SwimStrapless bodysuit, and just the template itself. It will output a 2048x4096 template should you wish to use it.
The red and green lines are exactly one MIP wide. Notice how you see them but cannot see any yellow on the sim when examined in S4S. (Extend the texture beyond that a few MIPs to avoid bleed.)
You will see numbers on there. One is the number of MIPs at 1024w, and the other is the number of pixels at 2048w. A MIP at 2048 is 2x2 pixels. The game sees only a MIP and you cannot split a MIP.
This map is not complete. I can upload any improvements and revisions if requested.
It was very useful for me when modifying clothing items like you see here:

Put your own photos in the game, and they light up. Illuminated Wall Images Kit 1x1 Aspect Ratio, 256x256 MIPs
Michelangelo and DaVinci were cool dudes and I bet they would be diggin' this. Those guys only had candles. Besides, there's no lights for the wall artwork in TS4. Simple solution there, just make the images light up!
In the ZIP file is two things. The package with one sample possum wall decal installed, and an optional PNG template file should you choose to use it.
Some folks might want more than a possum. Why, I dunno, but add whatever you want. Stuff from your phone, anything. No transparency is needed so JPG files are fine. Most of what you'll find is going to be JPG and PNG files anyway. Put it all in your game. Make it as big as an entire wall with shift+[ and ].
This is based on a wallDecal object from Dining Out. All EA content, nothing wacky. I simply made the wall meshes larger, and got all the mesh and UV vertices right on the pixel too.
Oh man, there's RULES!
1) The image made must be square and 256x256 or 512x512 pixels. B) It must be saved in PNG format for S4S.
DO NOT feed it an image with a higher resolution than listed. The 512 will look better. From what I've been hacking on in TS4, this use of DirectDraw will handle twice the MIP resolution. This one is 256 MIPs square, so a 512 pixel image is max or it doesn't work.
The template has a 1024x1024 canvas with 512x512 hole in the center. Open that and paste your image as a new layer. Keep the canvas size. Move the image under the template, squeeze/downsize/pan it to fit the center window. Select template layer, magic wand to select that center box. Select the image layer and crop to selection. Delete template layer. You should have a perfect 512x512 square. Save as PNG for the package. Add swatch, import texture. Rinse, repeat.
You might start with a really big image that could be 3000 pixels. Trying to paste that over the template is going to suck. Downsize that source image for the template, then paste it into a new layer. Just get in the ballpark to that template canvas, and 1024x1024 or less is even better.
I can only tell you how I did it. Fully white areas can easily blush out. I set it as well as I could. To adjust it, export the 00B2D882!80000000!99F2708565D79F5A.DSTImage and 00B2D882!80000000!FFBBBB81BD6F9618.DSTImage files from the warehouse and simply lighten or darken them.
Have fun! Any problems with this, drop a PM.

Outdoor Shower Trimmed
All the original textures plus black, white, and hot pink. Resized EA Island Living content.
Use this and have fun, but are you in the game? You're here on this cool web site, are you doing this stuff? Grab S4S, Paint.Net (my main choice) and/or GIMP, and Blender and have at it. I'm no expert and you can do this stuff too if you're not already. I just started extracting the sim organs and hacking them up with a meat cleaver.
On this hack job, I moved the mesh around and messed with the UV maps. The LOD1 high rez shadowmap/shader mesh was leaving remnants so I deleted it rather than delve into editing it. I dunno, was that wrong? :oD Everything seems to look and work just fine.

Toddler Commandos 6 Packages Total
Groups of protesting toddlers are gathering at playgrounds and threatening violent retaliation if toddler rights are not recognized. Reports of hitting and biting are becoming common. Demands issued by the toddler community include daily cake and ice cream allotments, and free access to all cabinets, closets, and purses. In the ZIP, (1.4 MB), all modified EA content:
simpossum_puHat_Beanie_NoPom.package - Knit hat with pom removed, all LOD meshes modified. (I'm getting better.) Black, pink, olive drab, and green camo.

Civilian youth commando units are becoming more common. More threats of violence, vandalism, and extortion. Elimination of all household chores, homework, and evening curfews are demanded. It is rumored that an evil scientist in San Myshuno has achieved mind control on the children through the phones, pads, and computers to create whole generations of mindless puppets. What fool would believe such nonsense?
All EA content, recolor only, expanded categories, universal gender.

BIG THANK YOU to Sim File Share, plus monas and cheybabyxx for getting me there! Microsoft quickly locked the One Drive account they gave me and they refuse to unlock it without a cavity search. DO NOT use MS One Drive. (Or maybe you like cavity searches, I dunno, I'm not you.)

Interrogate Everybody! Sim City PD Interrogation Table
Domestic challenges with family and neighbors can get out of hand. Enough is enough! Let's face it, some members of society need "correcting". Now all sims can be their own "law enforcement agency". Make up any phony "law" you like and "enforce" it, just like the government! Kids behaving unruly? Neighbor is a butt hole? A good hot SCPD-style grilling and plenty of cold steel bars does the trick. Good old fashioned DISCIPLINE! (Thumbscrews and waterboard sold separately.)
Base game dining table package injected with interrogation table textures and mesh elements. All EA content. Will appear in dining tables. Lamp is inoperable and clips all objects placed.
I need to work on police uniforms for everyone and a cell wall and door set.
Nothing says "discipline" more than these steel bars slamming shut behind a sim. Now all sims can properly outfit their private "security services" contracting company to serve up some real justice! Also mighty handy around the house to deal with children, neighbors, and random strangers! Enforce YOUR laws YOUR way!
Matches the EA cellWall objects. Behaves and locks as any other hinged single door. Can be found in build in the doors area. Places like an object the same as the cell wall sections. Works well on my 220.127.116.110 w/all.
Credit and big thanks to wintermuteai1 on Mod The Sims, who seems to have moved on from the MTS web site. This door mod is in "The Sims 4 Prison Set(Working Jail Doors + More)" as found on MTS. (unsupported) I have done a lot of work polishing this door up. Compare it to the door shown in my interrogation table images.
We know how stubborn some sims can be! When they refuse to listen to reason, stop wasting your breath. A few severed digits will snap them right into line. If that doesn't do it, you can bet some rigorous cavity probing will! A basic essential for all neighborhood watch groups, and always great fun for the whole family.
Three colors, found in decorations, clutter and misc..
It's about time your sims take piece of the pie! Private protection services are an essential mandate for all local businesses. Why just let city hall and SCPD corner that racket? Muscle in on 'em! This collections desk provides valuable options for customers. Did a sim miss Mugsey and Baby Face when they stopped by? Their store front was blown out by a bomb? Best to just stop in and pay! Youse gotta pwobwem wid dat?
The police desk is a hidden Get To Work debug object that is converted to being a buyable object for all sims. The desk chair is a detective career reward item that is unlocked for all sims to purchase.
I'm just posting the crap I'm making for my own game. Could be available elsewhere but I won't learn anything that way. Much thanks to those who wear mittens of orange, and all those who have made the incredible tutorial area. I'm eating it bit by bit. Takes time.
Every parent's worst nightmare is when their children turn out like them. Passing on that broken moral compass and extreme apathy comes back to bite the parents in the ass every time. "Do as I say, not as I do" might sound good, but it won't work unless driven home with some good old fashioned DISCIPLINE and negative reinforcement! One thing is for sure, it's never too early to start, and having the children return to murder them some day is not a pleasant thought. Don't let THAT happen to YOU!
The cellWall sections place like the Get To Work cell walls do and are found in Activities and Skills in the Recreation and Misc. categories. The prison gate can be found in Build in the fence gate selections, and must be placed into a single section of any fencing.
Large thanks to Scumbumbo at Mod The Sims for the "MTS_scumbumbo_1734075_TS4PackageConflictDetector". Very nice! And more praise to S4S for their "Selective Clone" option! It has the renumbering feature I applied to this package so it does not conflict with the large prison door I offer above. Sweet!
