Default Recolours of Sims Champions posters

Just a first tentative step.

Four recolours of posters to check.

One Greg has already made into a wall tile, I set up the poster to show the original photo.
One and All, was the "2 master" in the photo, my little ship.
The other 2 are old racing photo's.

Okay, that didn't work. No Recolour.rar file.

Now I get it! Hurry up and wait.

Well, after further experimentation.
It seems the .rar file is full of .png files, which Wizards of SimPE uses to build recolours. A Sims package file would be best I suppose.
However, if one is willing to do a little work, this still works. If you have SimPE.
I'm still holding my tongue, in the wrong side of my mouth some where, aren't I?
Back to the tutorials.

The trick is to zip up the .package file.

I've got 7 hard disks in this machine, 8, if I hook up the portable USB disk.

Is not so easy to find stuff some times, I leave Windoze alone while I make a coffee. It does weird stuff to itself. And now my defragmenter subscription has expired, Oh My.

How ever, yes, I found that one out, thank you.
My Sims 2 \Downloads folder holds over 4.2Gb in over 7,000 files in 368 folders.
But, I found the package file named Bounty.pkg, and RARed it up.

They still look "shitty", I will just wait on the plain English tute, that the good Lady M has kindly offered to write for me.
I did post an ugly result, and the original photo, in my "what now" thread.
With a plea for advice.
That is where Miros offered to tutor, me so to speak. Nice lady.

Stupid software, unhelpful manuals, manufactures that don't like detailing certain critical specs.
EA made the game to be modded, then it is very hard to find the correct size and form limits. Even the people who made SimPE, just about had to reverse engineer aspects of the game to build the tools for us to use. It sure wasn't EA who gave us this capacity.

Plastic Star EA.
A genuine imitation chromium plated, Plastic Star, for thinking their manuals through.
Oh well, it is just a silly game, to pass the time away after all.

Thank's all. I might go play the silly game for a while.
It is raining here, no farm work to do, machinery is all up to date with there services.
Yep, I'm logging out to play the game, see you.

Okay, let's try again.

2 paintings, recolours of the 2 tile abstract horizontal painting. Sorry, it's the 500 Simolean painting, just the first one I came across that SimPE would let me export.

Do like I do, Ctrl-Shift-C motherlode enter.

Now can buy painting, look at and throw out. Or not.

Let me know, I'm still trying to get them all lined up properly.

1, a photo of Our Svannen, an 1890's built Norwegian 3 master. The same 3 masted ship in Greg's Aussie Sunset Walls.
The second, a sunset shot, from my brothers farm.
