Welcome to the Simblesse Oblige Pumpkin Carving Party!


This challenge is fun for all and can be done by anyone from experienced creators to beginners (a tutorial is provided for beginners).
To participate, simply download our provided pumpkin bases, carve your pumpkin and submit your entry!
All entries submitted before October 28th, 2007 will become part of one of this year's Halloween Treats: The Simblesse Oblige Pumpkin Carving Kit!!

1) Download and Clone your desired base (provided below).
Here are your pumpkin choices (or, if you're really ambitious, use a whole different pumpkin on the base).


2) Carve Your Pumpkin. Export the sprites and decorate.
Each pumpkin base is "4-in-1" all surface curio (this just means these little decorative doo-dads each have 4 graphic inside of them) and no expansion pack is required. Use each of the 4 graphics to show your pumpkin being carved starting at "frame 1" and ending with "decor1", a finished piece, perfect for displaying in your Sims' homes.

Here's an example of what Mtaman did with the four front views of his pumpkin:



Once you alter the graphics, your Sim will be able to let loose their creative powers and select any one of the four graphics, letting you decorate with one of the "works in progress" or giving your Sim a finished pumpkin curio!

3) Submit Your Entry by uploading your completed pumpkin curios to this thread along with a screenshot.
Members that upload their completed pumpkins to Simblesse Oblige by Oct. 28 will have their object incorporated into a new and unique Halloween download,
The Simblesse Oblige Pumpkin Carving Kit!
This is a great new skill object (creativity) and you'll want your pumpkin to be a part of it.

I'll go first.
Here's my finished pumpkin that can be put in the upcoming pumpkin carving kit.
If I can make one then anyone can.

This sounds like so much fun! You mentioned a tuturiol for beginners...where would I find it? (And is it for Mac beginners or just PC?)

Thanks!

ETA: Sorry I just saw the tutorial thread! Doh!

Okay, this is my first attempt at creating anything for sims.

Just a little question, what am I to zip to enter the contest and where do I find it to zip it?

Go ahead and laugh, they're supposed to be fun pumpkins!

Oh, and IF I can do this...... laugh

I'm really going to ened some help on this, too bad I'm not exactly graphics oriented as a young genius...

Oh yeah, what I was meaning to ask, would you mind if I used one of those bases for another object I'm working on? it's a new grwers patch with magical abilities (or so I hope it to be)

Look in the Downloads/Transmogrified folder for the iff that you named and zip it up and post it in this thread with your pictures.

No. we don't mind. Staff posted those as part of a challenge, so they're fair game.

But you might want to check the Harvest clutterbox here at SO, for quite a variety of pumpkins, most at the right game skew. The clutterboxes are meant to provide creators with graphics for projects. smile

The tutorial uses PC programs for the examples. As a Mac user you'd need to use IffSnooper for cloning the curio and exporting the images (Disassembling?). Then you would use any graphics program you are comfortable with and IffSnooper to re-import the images (Re-Assemble?)

Persimmon Grove has an object making tutorial for IffSnooper (the version shown in the tutorials out of date but the basics should be the same and specific questions can be posted in the Object Making forum)

Zip the two curio objects you cloned and worked on .. the same ones you bought from buymode to display in game. Those are just adorable!

EDIT: You should find your clone in the Downloads\Transmogrifier folder

Mamasoul, you draw such beautiful things ... I am SO looking forward to your entry!
