    My only issue so far is lighting. I light TOO well and my models end up luminescent.

    My only issue so far is lighting. I light TOO well and my models end up luminescent.

    try using the invisible lights and use 1 light, move it around till you get the perfect light effect you want
    get to it by shift+ ctrl+c and enter testingcheatsenabled true
    then enter buydebug on into the box after that

    these is what i use though

    Well I use the invisible lights, and at first, they were perfect lighting, then I changed Threnody's (one of my models) hair color to a light color and now it glows like it's under blacklight. >.<

    I'm going to bump this back up and ask a question.

    So I was thinking about how I really wanted to host a competition. And I was brainstorming ideas and I thought I would run this by you guys and see what you guys thought of it.

    The title of the competition would be, "Unforgettable." And the idea of it is to pick a previous era, 1980's, Victorian, and even Steam punk. And other era's like that. And the idea is that everyone would have the same assignment, but you have to keep your model high fashion and in their era. Unforgettable. You know, because it's the past.

    So, how does that sound?

    Thanks! That would defiantly be one of the options, Victorian is one of my favorites!

    Hey, Brittani! :)

    Regarding the invisible lights - you can try moving them further away from the sim, but sometimes that can make the rest of your set dark. Try setting down a table lamp and click on it and select "adjust brightness". You can then select a custom level of brightness or one of the presets. Once you have chosen your lighting level, turn off "all lights" and then turn them all on again and th invisible lights will have the same brightness level. :)

    @ Angel - I totally agree with you, it's so nice to see people sharing screenshots and getting feedback on their modelling shoots. :)

    I went ingame and made a Simself, however, just imagine this, but younger, and fatter. XDDD Naw I'm not THAT fat but I'm not as skinny as the simself.

    This was what I wanted to be my signature but I also wanted to share it with you all.

    This is just me testing my poses with my Simself and taking screenshots whilst I do so XD

    I love this pose so much I believe it deserves two pictures :)
