Apartment Shell Recolouring
Hi, I am a berry sweet simmer who is creating a berry sweet town. I have recoloured all rabbit holes successfully - using the S3OC, S3PE & paint with the dds plug in. They all showed up in game. Now .. I figured in theory i should be able to do the same with appartment shells. I used S3OC to locate the appartment, cloned it -- opened S3PE exported all the image files .. edited them in paint.net using the hue-contrast to change the colours. Saved all the image files .. opened S3PE, then opened the cloned object back up and imported the new images the program put a strike through all the old images and replaced them with mines. I saved it and put it in my mods/packages folder and installed it via granthes custom launcher.. I have done this twice and can't get them to show in the buydebug menu, even though i checked and rechecked the catalog and made sure to tick buydebug. I am at a total loss as to why they won't show up in game . Any help is appreciated.
/*edit -- I didn't know about bumping so yeah sorry about that but someone pleeease help it's driving me crazy!

No, it doesn't appear at all ~ thought it was because it was in the debug menu that maybe you have to do it another way -- I've looked in various forums and searched google for any information about recolouring the outside of the appartment shells and I can't find anything.. it's driving me crazy!
Edit* I have tried countless times but nothing ever shows up in game that I recolour -- the rabbit holes show but none of the apartment shells do, and I do it in the exact same way. I am about to give up! I thought it was weird that it hadn't been done already
Tried to put the .package into TSRW to change the buydebug thing but didn't freakin' work so I'm guessing that it can't be done cause I've tried every which way but loose (dontsing) -__- help me someone. Please, even if its to say .. dude it can't be done, then at least I can move on.
