Inge, assuming you can sign in (cause I haven't been able to for some reason even though it appears others have) it appears that you can download some objects ect now from the new TS3 website. That way you can see if the package viewer works or not. http://llnw.thesims3.com/exchange/objects

It tries to bring up the login popup but fails with page not found. If someone would like to send me an object that might be easiest

yeah, same here... but you have to sign in to post movies and several people have already posted movies on the site using clips provided by EA. So obviously people can or atleast could've signed in. Some of the objects etc. do have a download count so people have downloaded them. Maybe someone will see this and send them to you.

EDIT 4:45 p.m. - and now the site can't even be accessed to view anything. It asks for a password right away.

Sounds good. Is this program like SimPe?

No. It is going to be a base library of utilities that modders can use to make front-end tools. SimPE loads the tools to recolor, edit sims, edit meshes, and everything else even if all you want to do is change the way an object works. The sims 3 version will let you just download and use what you need and ignore the rest, although you will need the main S3PI files for anything built with them.

Ghost, I know you probably said that as much in basic terms as possible but I still have no idea what you mean. Do you mean it will all be seperate tools instead of an "all-in-one" tool like SimPE?

Rather than just Quaxi and SimPE this time, there are *several* people making tools. Peter and I are focussing on a library of functions that other toolmakers can use if they choose to. Those functions can be used in all-in-one tools like SimPE or specialised small tools for individual tasks.

Other toolmakers who are not using our library may be making large or smaller tools, I don't know.

I, for one, much prefer smaller tools that do one - or a few - things very very well, and aren't as resource hungry as SimPE became.

Tumblr - Yes, I have a blog. :)

<Corsix> Why 'mod the sims 2' when you can mod 'mod the sims 2'?

Story books are full of fairy tales, of Kings and Queens, and the bluest skies.

I don't think the Monolith Tool is going to return in TS3. We seem to be fragmenting into many small tools already, and the structure of the game is such that there are a lot of existing general-purpose tools that do the job better than any tool someone could assemble specifically for TS3.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

I agree. I imagine there will be minimum of 6 or 7 shortly after release.

You got it before the June 2nd release? Where? If so, register it and goto the sims3 site and download one of the objects and take a look at the package, come back to discuss your findings so we can get working on the mod tools.

I just hope modders like Warlokk and his wonderful skins can be adapted for sims3. Hate that insimanator went away.

If anyone has downloaded the s3pi library and demo viewer, please remember to keep checking for updates at Sims3Tools! Vital fixes are being made all the time. Last release was as recently as yesterday.

I'm probably the only one here thats all for a 'monolith' editor as opposed to several niche tools. But sometimes in the course of setting up a story arc you have to cross many different aspects of the game, and flipping back an forth between tools screams less joy to me than one (albeit vastly complex) interface.

Having worked with SimPE a lot in creating a variety of objects, I think I'd prefer a smaller tool that does the task I need at that time. SimPE is a memory hog.
