SimShow Skin Tutorial Posted
8:55 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

SimsForMac has posted a quick new tutorial on how to use the SimShow utility, recently released by Aspyr, to make customized skins for The Sims. Keep in mind that you'll need an external graphics editor (like PhotoShop) to acutally make new skins. The tutorial is a quick, three-page process, though the author promises to flesh it out further in the future:

To start off, this tutorial is only designed as a resource to Sims users who just want to get into skinning, but have no idea how. I read a lot and experimented with some techniques and this is what I came up with. Hopefully this will show you the basics to making a skin and you can take it from there. I'm not going to try to go into explicit detail, yet I'll show you how to make some simple modifications to an existing skin and then get it to work in your game. Now that SimShow has been released, you'll be able to preview them and then import them into the game.
To download SimShow, head to the Aspyr web site and have your serial number ready to be able to log in.
