Default Trying to recolor the Tech painting... apparently I needed the fix for SimPE UC ~ SOLVED! Thank you!
Why can I NOT find paintingTech / Albert's "Discordia" (from Apt Life) to recolor?
Group ID is: 0x7F13CA15
GUID: 0x94F007D4

The CEP documentation says it's recolorable.
PhotoStudio doesn't have a template (which is fine, I can make one.)
And when I load the file table in SimPE to make a regular recolor of it, it's not there - I've searched every category Deco/Walls, Misc, General, Other, etc...

I did a google search and found one or two others have successfully recolored it (which isn't many, I know, but it HAS been done.)

Grrrrr! I am soooo frustrated
Help! Please?

Do you have other things from AL in SimPE? The painting is the list under deco/wall. You could try changing the setting in preferences, on the SimPE settings tab, and check show OJBD filenames. This is how I have it, simply because I know internal names more than the descriptive in game name.

ETA: Changed my SimPE settings and it is still there. Notice that the list is alphabetical, however the in game names that they used quotes on are first.

Thanks Lunie (Psst - did you see the pm I sent you about the round IKEA painting you found?)

Yes, I have Apt Life directed correctly in the file table. I remember seeing things from AL in the table, but I'll double check that.
I'm using the UC now - which is still kinda new to me... But, I think I have everything set correctly. I'll go check...


***ETA***

OK. I stupidly hit "reset", and had to redirect all the system folders... That's done and my 'preferences' are saved this time. Oi!
However the File Table still lists a bunch of things as 'missing'...
And, when I load the file table in Obj Workshop, it doesn't have any of the Apt Life items: no witch skins, apt doors, spiral stairs, closets, or vending machines *sigh*
When I run the system check - the top one says I need to "fix" it, but clicking 'fix' does nothing (that I can tell)
----the 'details' tells me: Folder for "The Sims 2" was not found.
Unable to locate "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Double Deluxe\Base\TSBin\Sims2.exe".
Uhhm....?


Any suggestions on how to get this thing working correctly?
Thanksies for any and all help

I have UC and I think I had the same thing with AL items not showing up in object workshop. I did find a workaround somehow... if I could just remember it. I think I had to temporarily disable everything except AL and maybe base game in preferences. And after I was done with what I wanted to clone, I enabled everything back.

Although, there must be a better way, because I look in my OW now, and I see AL stuff including 0x94F007D4 Painting - Tech. I don't know what I've done to fix it, but I clearly remember having this problem. What version of SimPE do you use? I've changed versions some time ago, now I'm on 0.73.44.37511.

I have the same System Check result, so that's not it.

Thank YOU!

Perhaps you need an updated expansions.xreg file for your SimPE (in the Data subfolder in your SimPE program folder).. You find some here http://www.mediafire.com/file/to38h...pdatedForUC.zip.
Remember to make reset followed by reload in SimPE.s Extra/Prefences/File Table after you have changed the expansions.xreg file

YAY!!! Thank you @clsve

It worked!!! *dances happily about the room* I had already pointed the folders correctly, all I needed to do was swap out the .xreg file.

Here is a mini-tute explaining what to do (in case anyone else needs it too): http://simscommunity.info/social/th...-time-use.4113/

Huh, I haven't done that. My expansions.xreg is dated 2008. But still was good to know. Downloaded it just in case. Thanks, clsve, for the link and thanks, CatherineTCJD, for reporting back
