What is the TSR Workshop?
TSR Workshop was built to let you create any custom content you want - hairstyles, objects, clothing, accessories or patterns... Everything is possible with this in-house tool from The Sims Resource!
Beautiful 3D View
In order to see the changes you are doing to your creations, TSR Workshop offers a live 3D Viewport for your convenience. Changing a pattern or checking the wireframe of your mesh? You'll instantly see it! You'll also be able to map out lighting, position wallmask gaps in walls, counters and floors, change the use and purpose of a creation - all in 3D.
Geostates and lighting
Are you stuck with getting bookshelves properly to work? Do you need to describe which parts of a lamp are illuminated most? Not a problem in TSR Workshop where a built-in Geostates and lighting editors allow advanced-level tweaking for perfect results.
What you will need...
- The game (of course)!
- a 3D meshing program of your choice that will export FBX or OBJ files
- a texturing program that accepts DDS plugins (for texture formats)
- a copy of Milkshape 3D or Blender to convert the files to Sims format with animated joints and such (this is shareware and costs around $30 USD after the trial period)
- you will finally need to install the plugins that accompany Workshop into your choice of Milkshape or Blender.
