I have updated with 160 new items in Sims 1 Walls and Floors
I really had hoped to release some content for Sims 1 in this past year, however I seem to have run into a technical hiccup. I decided to post about it on the off chance someone sees it and knows an answer (very unlikely)
About 8 months ago my 3D program (what I use to make the 3d models of the objects) stopped working, it would simply stop responding after I started it. I believe this started when I updated my graphics card drivers for my laptop. I cannot go back to an earlier version of my graphics card drivers a) because the older version is really really old and kept locking up my laptop b) weren't compatible with Skyrim (something I care hugely about). I can't upgrade my 3D program because a) I don't have a spare $3000 to buy a new version (my current version doesn't qualify for the cheaper upgrade path) and even if I did b) the version I am using, 3D Studio Max 9.0 is the very last version which is compatible with EA's sprite exporter plugin (something that turns the 3D model into the right type of 2D renders to make objects). It simply doesn't work with later versions according to other people who have tried it out.
Back in the dark ages I used to make objects by hand but a) they were rubbish and b) they took forever to make and I just don't have the free time to spend 2 months trying (and failing) to make a bed that I would normally expect to complete in an hour.
If anyone out there uses the same program and has some suggestions please let me know!
