I'm guessing you meant to post the below in my GB rather than your own?! \:o \:D Glad you managed to sort out the pics! \:cool\: - there'll be no stopping you now! \:P \:D I found the easiest way is to make a folder on your desktop and save any pics you want to upload in that - it does get confusing when you've got loads and loads to go through in the game folders, especially when you get 'snap happy'! \:P Surely you've heard of Beachy Head? - the notorious beauty spot! - it's just down the road from me! \;\) Anyway, have fun with the pics - looks like your little one likes her new nursery \:rah\: \:cool\: - and it's really nice to see my stuff being used in someone elses game - thank you for the publicity! \:D \:D

Hiya! You need to submit screenshots and most preview pics as '.jpeg' files rather than '.bmp', though you can use .bmp for walls & floors. They're quite simple to change - just open your .bmp image in your graphics program, then 'save as' and just change the extension from '.bmp' to '.jpeg'. Once they're saved as .jpeg files, you shouldn't have any probs uploading! \;\) It can be a bit confusing at first, but once you've done it a few times, it becomes a habit! \:o \:P We had a couple of holidays down the New Forest, a few years back now - nice place, especially the little country pubs! \:cool\: \:P I'm quite a few miles east then - at a rather notorious beauty spot! \:eek\: \:P Glad you like the 'Unicorns' as well - I'm planning on continuing the series a bit more - when I get the time! \:rolleyes: - work & life keep interfering with my creativity unfortunately! \:o \:P Anyway, if you have any other questions or anything I can help with, just give me a shout and I'll see what I can do! \;\) \:D Have fun! \:D

Hiya! Do you have 'Pets' installed? (The 'Bee Rug' requires that, so that could be why it's not showing up!). I'd love to see a screenshot of your/my nursery - you could always post one on here (and get Kudos for it! \;\) \:P ). You need to download a program called 'SimPE' which allows you to do the object re-colouring, plus you need a decent graphics/art prog. 'Homecrafter' lets you design walls, floors, terrain, etc, and 'Bodyshop' for your sims clothes, etc., which I guess you already know! \:P So, are you going to start creating as well then? \:cool\: I've found it can be rather frustrating, especially when you're first starting out, but it's also a lot of fun too, and you get that sense of achievement when you go in game and see the stuff you've made, particularly when it's turned out well! \:D Thanks also for your comments on my bedding and crib - it took me ages to work out how to do the bedding \:o - it's just the way the meshes are designed (they're not always as straight forward as they look!). So you live on the south coast too? You're the second person I've found down here \:cool\: - where abouts are you? Anyway, have fun, and if you do decide to post a screenshot of the nursery, please let me know - I'd really like to see what other people do with my stuff! \;\) \:D

Hi! Thanks very much for your lovely comments on my 'Baby Bee Nursery' items - it's great to know that people really do like my creations! \:D With regards to the potty and the toybox not showing up in your game - it does sound like it's a CEP problem since they are individual items in the catalogue (they are Base Game objects, so no expansion packs are required). If you look in your 'Downloads' folder ('My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Downloads') there should be a file called: "_EnableColorOptionsGMND.package" - this is the CEP file that allows those re-colours to show up if you have it installed properly. There has recently been an updated version released, so even if you do have that file, it is worth getting the current one, and if you don't have it, then you will need it for any re-colours of single catalogue items to show up. I hope this makes sense, but feel free to get back to me if it doesn't - or you have any questions \:D Thanks again for your comments! \:D
