Ok, so you made your first mesh but you want it in several colours...easy peasy a_bigteeth

Open SimPE and on the object workshop select the open button.



Locate your file in the downloads folder and open it.
Now we are going to select 'recolour' from the drop down menu and press the start button.



A box will pop-up for you to save the file...name it so you know what it is!
And then save.



Now you will see the texture screen and the textured uv map we imported in the mesh stage.
Right click on the texture and export to somewhere ie. folder on desktop or something.



Right now you need to open the texture file you just saved in your paint programme and re-texture it...you know how to do this already so I'm not going to bother explaining...when it's finished save over the file you extracted and maximise SimPE again.

On the texture image right click and import, then you need to find your recoloured texture and open it.



On your new texture right click and select 'update all sizes' then press commit



Now you go up to File and save, this will save the the recolour over the file you saved to your downloads folder earlier.



You now have a recoloured table!



You can repeat this process to make more recolours, just click on the startover button and start from the top.



Any questions?
