      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

    What should be the resolution of the PNG?

     

    It depends on the file.  You should always edit the largest file - and that might be 128x128 or 256x256.  Either way, keep it in the original resolution.

     

     

    My .fsh files are considered invalid...?!

     

    What is the exact error that you're receiving?

    gotta say it , exelent tutorial

     

     

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not edit over/shift any of the windows or lights. These aspects have their own template in ILive's Reader, which must be edited itself. We'll save that for another day. :)

     

    when will it come???

    allow me to explain ;)

     

    i'm interstead in "light" aspect ,

    i would like to create some automatas that doesn't turn off tail lights during the day

    simulating stops light that actually you can see "on" during the day time too in extra-urban roads ,and in the city every time a car stops.

    is that possible with these tools? that's something more i need to know ?

    thx again

    I have a problem with this. I tried to make a new ambulance and I did all the things you say in this tutorial, but in the final step the ILives Reader told me that "Structure 1 can be corrupted" ----> "Do you want to abort saving?" and I clicked "No" so it finally got saved. I put the file into Documents.............Plugins and I started the game, but the ambulance was strange, it was like a mixture between the model I made and the game default one, the skin was the one of the default ambulance but the lightbars were the ones of my ambulance. So, what I did wrong? Can you help me?

     Download ''FSHlib from windows Vista and Xp'' file from the BSC LEX exchange. 

    Extract/unzip the folder and copy the file "fishlib.dll" into your "FiSHMAN_Beta" folder, making sure to overwrite the existing file in the folder.

    thanks #eisideo - it helped.

    However even when I follow all steps in this tutorial I cannot get reskinned model. When I add a new png file in the last step in ILives and delete the old skin it still shows old skin (with changed background only) under new one. Wired. Anyone knows how to sort it out?
