So I asked if my system of hair package making scripts would be useful for anyone else and I got one yes, which was enough. I’m in the process of compiling a biiiig tutorial on how to use the program Sikuli IDE to write scripts that will make hair for the Sims 2 without requiring much input from the creator. Basically, this process is about giving the job over to your fucking terrifying robot overlords b/c it’s boring.
So far I have written two scripting tutorials. Take note that I am not a coder or anything; Sikuli IDE is just very user friendly. The two tutorials I have finished will tell you how to use Sikuli IDE to export packages from Bodyshop and recolor hair textures using Photoshop actions. These may not work for everyone because of system differences, but hopefully someone will find these useful. Also let me know if anything is way too confusing, I’m not good at explaining things.
Take note that this method also utilizes Pooklet’s method of importing precolored textures into volatile hair packages using SimPE, because it’s faster than overwriting all of the textures in Bodyshop.
Also I’m sorry for any weird formatting in the Dreamwidth posts; I’ll try to fix it later. /o\ I’ll also try to get the rest of the tutorial up later on, when I’ve recovered from the Photoshop portion.
