    Viewing your .dds textures so you don't have to guess

    Mystic Thumbs .dds Viewer for Windows
    Source Texture Organization









    Instructions for installing your new textures:

    When you download click on save and then download them where you can find them.
    Okay now you have your files downloaded I will walk you through putting them into your game. I'll write this for beginners like I was just a few months ago.

    Find your files and then open up Windows Explorer.
    On the left hand side under Folders, go down to Documents,
    then to Electronic Arts,
    then to The Sims 3 Create A World,
    then to UserToolData.
    then click on SourceTextures.
    Now just drag and drop the new .dds files into the SourceTextures file.

    Make Your Own Textures

    If you would like to try your hand at making your own textures here is a link:
    The Easy Way to Create Terrain Textures or here is a quick tutorial:


    Using Gimp

    1. Get gimp, and the .dds plugin. Links here, and how to do the plugin, very easy...Free Image Editors for use with Caw

    2. Pick a pre-existing texture from your Source Textures File. If you want pink grass, get a grass texture you like. Choose something that's not too dark.

    3. Drag and drop this into gimp. you get a pop up like this, un-check  the Load mipmaps box.

    Terrain Texture Links, Custom Roads,  & other Effects Kbbng0

    4. Click on "Colors" on the menu bar, and the "Hue-Saturation"

    Terrain Texture Links, Custom Roads,  & other Effects 6sdg78

    5. Now you get this pop up and you just mess around with the sliders.

    Terrain Texture Links, Custom Roads,  & other Effects 15g9gm8

    6. Under "File" click on "Save as", and name it, and click "Save".

    Terrain Texture Links, Custom Roads,  & other Effects 2155zk

    7. Then just save with these options, and your done.

    Terrain Texture Links, Custom Roads,  & other Effects 1zdmalw

    At this point I always do another "Save as" and save it as a jpeg. now when you are looking for your textures, you can see them.



    You can also get your own new textures. Google "Free Seamless Textures" and you'll get a bunch of different sites with interesting textures. Just make sure they are cropped to 1024x1024, or 512x512. You'll lose some detail in the texture if they are 512, but for some textures you only use to highlight it's better to have them at the 512, they are a much smaller file size, which will help lower you're overall world file size.
