A Feast of Frames
Here is a set of 15 paintings ranging from postcard size to rather large. The frame texture comes from the KitchenBasic Counter and the pictures are slaved to the following Maxis paintings:
Whatever recolours you already have of both the counter and those paintings will work to provide you with endless possibilities. Nothing overrides any in-game or custom content and you do not need BV for the travel poster based frames to work (please see special note under download). All meshes are modified Maxis. A collection file is included.
Since Mediafire won't let me go over 2MB here are the Maxis recolours I made to test the frames: 17 for the BV travel poster, 8 for the OlivePeynterCityScape, 6 for Suspense and 4 for Transcendence and I may as well share. Delete what you don't like in game. All art by the respective artists. I'll add a piccy later to show what you're getting.
**Note for those without BV. You will notice that in your menu the frames that are linked to the BV travel poster will be blue inside. This is normal since the objects are referencing something you do not have. You MUST have at least one recolour for the frames to take on the paintings. You can recolour either before placing or in game. And yes, you can now download and use any BV poster recolours you find. You could also try the base game version by Huge Lunatic to remedy the blues:).
Many thanks to the following:
eefje00704 for the Bv suggestion even though I just wanted to do base game paintings. HugeLunatic for the base game version that I used to extract the mesh, texture and much needed references for my frames to work. lmhwjs from Clutter-a-holic whose beautiful recolours I used when first testing the idea and are shown in the far corner of screenie 3. MogHughson for the MTS tutorial: Custom Cameras For Thumbnails. The people who tested to make sure all was well. I'll admit that this started off as an easy and quick project but ended up a bit more complicated and time consuming.
Hope you enjoy!
