View Full Version : Paintings with Skills? Is this possible?
9th Aug 2007, 08:06 PM
I am wanting to build an Art School and am wondering if there is a way to add a skill, such as charisma or creativity, to a painting for studying the painting while viewing it. My Art School would have a gallery containing the works of the great masters for visitors and students. Visitors and students would be able to either just view the painting or study the style of the painting-thereby gaining creativity or charisma - sort of like one does when taking an art history class - they gain creativity by studying the style as well as gain historical knowledge about the masters allowing them to converse about art better. I would think adding the skill charisma to the view option and a study option to gain creativity. As well, I planned to add a painting studio class and performing arts class - including musical instruments - and a dance studio for studying dance.
Also, is there anyway to add body skilling to the dance option for stereos?
If any of this has been done before already, please point me in the direction. I have no idea where to start with something like this so any tips would be great.

This sounds like alot of fun! Echo has graciously provided us with tutorials for making custom BHAVs. I'm pretty sure its plenty possible to do what you suggested, just takes time, lots of learning and figuring out, and if you are anything like me, LOTS of reading.
Have a linky -->
I you are wanting to apply this to all paintings, well I don't know what to tell you there, I haven't gotten that far myself, but you would want to find tutorials on making global mods and be real familiar with SimPE. Good Luck!

Actually, i don't think i would want the option for all paintings. I have a select few (maybe 7) frames that I want to use specifically. Also, I will probably find master artists works to use for the paintings themselves. Will probably take me all weekend just to figure out the tutorial! LOL. I have never done anything except for make recolors!
Thanks for the links by the way! Great stuff!

If you only want a certain few, then you can just make one with all the cool skills, and just recolor it 7 times since you know how to do that.

I think I have figured out most of it but I am a bit stuck. Am going to post in the SimPE help section though as this is mostly a simpe question.

Well all, I did it! I created my skilling paintings. I have them posted in the creator feedback forum if you want to give them a go and pass on some constructive criticism! It was difficult at first but the tutorials on this site are awesome as well as those that wrote them! Kuddos to all those great tutorial writers!
