renaming

Archived from groups: alt.games.the-sims (More info?)

i saw this was talked about the other day but.....is simPE the thing people
use to rename objects? i'd like to just change the names/descriptions in
the game so i can have all the sets named properly, if it's possible. i saw
someone said something about items going blue after renaming, can't remember
what was said and of course can't find the post.
thanks for any help!

More about renaming
  1. Archived from groups: alt.games.the-sims (More info?)

    Well first of all, if you mean by sets, recolors that people have done of
    the default maxis objects, then renaming them will not help.
    Each recolor is in the catalog under the object used in the recolor.
    Yes, renaming the objects can cause the objects not to be usuable in the
    game. The reason for this is because the name is incorporated into the
    object when it is created and changing the name makes it unstable.
    If you are interested in learning Simpe, I suggest you go to mts2 and start
    learning how to use it.

    Another suggestion........when in the game, make a collection of things that
    go together. Like you have gotten a kitchen somewhere, just find one part
    of it, then click the folder icon then create a new collection with that
    object. After that you can add the matching objects to that collection.
    Then when you need them, just open that collection in the game. Just FYI,
    the previews for recolored objects in your game will show the default object
    in your collection.

    yep that's exactly what i was asking. i looked at simPE and read through a
    bit of the tutorial stuff they had on thier site....i dunno if i'm brave
    enough for that. lol.

    i have done the collection thing but was a lil disappointed. i was kinda
    hoping that when i created a collection it would take it out of the other
    object area. no i dea why i wanted that now...it seemed good at the time,
    lol. the collection idea seems to be the best and only way to go if i want
    sets together.
    thanks for all the info bluegenie2!
