    In this tutorial, we go over the process to reskin a vehicle (or automata) in SimCity 4.

    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?

     

    FSHman does not like to read my files

     

    And no one has figured a solution?!

     

    Which error message are you getting?

    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?
