    Hello again everyone ! I have a very important news to share with you all . I just found about an add on named gimp batch files manipulation and I have to say it is the best thing ever to work on a UI make over , instead of changing file by file , I can apply a filter to thousand of files all at once. In other words, designing a brand new 100% complete UI for the sims 2 couldnt easier. As of now , I will be working on a 2.0 version of this mod unfortunately the actual design is subject to changes but a more polish bug free version will be publish eventually . It will be a mix of version 1.5 and a brand new design. Stay tunned for more info

    Well after multiple hit and miss , this is the filter I have found to look the best considering that the font will always stay blue its actually impossible to change them and considering that im alone and I dont want to spend the rest of my life designing piece by piece this 2004 game. So I have found and customise this beauty , its a filter I have created with gimp. I can apply it to multiple files all at once , like I was explaining in my latest post. What do you guys think? Do you like it? Im actually starting from scratch to get CAS & CAN, build & live mod perfectly done and playable this time. Has a base , as a structure and design in gray... it could be easily applied for me in all the area of the game and then slowly improve and custom certain piece to make it more unique. What do you guys think?

    I have fixed the portrait not appearing in the latest screenshot , while I was doing the conversion a few files got corrupted in the process.
    Next step would be to apply my filter to those black circle area , and turn those into gray ish white ish , buttons & column.

    EDIT
    Its amazing how fast it is with that methode of modifiying the ui files :blush: all of the above problems were corrected except for the buttons and icons . Im not 100% what to do with them and im not completely done with the basic stuff.

    Well most of all menu from the user interface has been correctly designed and perfectly rendered, including cas , can, live and build mode. Here s two youtube videos showing all the amount of work , and the actual gameplay of this brand new UI, in motion ! The best part is it took me approximately 5 hours to do all that ! so im very excited for whats next when all the basic stuff will be completed. As of now it is built upon the original version in a white and gray palette and a vanilla version of this mod will be available for download later on before any drastic modifications and customisations occurs. stay tunned :)

    I've got one that has a date modified of 7/7/2016. I opened it in SimPE and the Version information stuff says:

    Version 1.00
    Build Date: June 24, 2015.

    Would that be new enough to have the file you need?
  • Seera1024Seera1024 Posts: 3,325 Member
    I like the ones with the green more than the yellow. The green doesn't pull my focus like the yellow does. Yellow in sims games means there's someone/thing that needs my attention.

Its is also very important to say when it will become official two version will be given. One compatible with base game only , and the other will be compatible with sims 2 ultimate it will possibly come along with 2 or 3 different flavors for now summer breeze will be the first ever 2.0 official release

    I LOVE this version here. The simple white and transparency is great. Kudos to you for your dedication on this massive project. I would love to download it when it’s complete!

    I’m actually a professional UI designer for a living and sometimes I kinda want to see what I can do with TS3 but I’ve looked into it and it’s so much work! I can only imagine TS2 is similar. Really nice work on what you have so far.
  • mrcnlbyrkmrcnlbyrk Posts: 45 Member
    I'm thinking of replacing UI sounds with TS4's UI sounds. They could fit to this white UI, and the Clean UI. What do you guys think?

    Hi :)

    I have one, I don't know which version.
    I like the white. I am having trouble with seeing some of the letters with the version I have installed. It's also very hard to see the info for the business this way, and is why I think white would work nicely. :)

    This pictures a bit of it.

    *I don't remember the S4 UI sounds.
