Is this possible at all? I've been busy at fixing the trashcans to make them CAStable. So far I've enabled the second channel, and have been attempting to match the pattern of the lid to the pattern of the barrel just so it will be overriden in-game. It turns out there's something in the game not allowing me to do this. Any ideas? Many thanks in advance.
I don't play much so I don't remember this - but when a sim picks the lid up, does it change into a different object (an accessory)? That can be one cause of problems with changing appearance in play.
Actually the lids are all white now, and when a sim picks the lid up, the color changes back to the original color. Please note that the texture of the bin was a "custom" EA made recolor. Meaning that EA recolored the bottom, which may be causing the top to be white.
It also appears that when I change the color to something else the texture of the top goes black. A Preset EA trash bin ^
Well you have a problem with that accessory lid. There is no way the player can select it to CAST it. I think you'll just have to explain "sorry, when the sim lifts the lid it goes black briefly" Other than that, leave it as it is.
Please do not PM me with questions about modding. Please post in an appropriate forum and send me a link to the thread if you would like me to try and help.
