I have tried to swap graphics from a deco object (1 tile) to a Maxis dollhouse with Iffpencil following these instructions:

http://simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?t=2386&highlight=swap+graphic

I checked and double checked, and in TMog the dollhouse shows the graphics I wanted.

But when I load it to the game, the object is working fine, but still has the same old Maxis dollhouse graphics.

If I export the sprites of my new object with TMog, the sprites are the right ones. So where are the Maxis ones hidden?

Is there anything else to observe than described in the above mentioned instruction?

Meanwhile I have reimported the object with TMog, hoping for a miracle, don't know, and launched my game again.
And: it works now! laugh

Can anyone tell me why this made a difference?

Did you accidentally place a Maxis dollhouse in-game? jfade's psycho

No, because there have been two dollhouses in game - the Maxis one and the other one with changed price and description. Therefore I can tell for sure that I did not make confusion with the original Maxis dollhouse.

Or didn't I understand your question?

No, you understood perfectly, that was just the only condition I could bring to mind that would cause the old graphics. laugh

Thank you, Purplewowies!

Well, I won't think about it any more and be happy that it worked in the end!
I have not much experience and might be lacking of some basic information, this was my thought. I'll see what happens in my next tries.

Maybe it was a strong Maxis ghost rebelling against transformation? rolleyes laugh
