    Example map now out on ToyBox and GarrysMod.org! (Not the one in the video.)





    Okay, I know clean textures are always wanted for cleaner looking maps. I've been working on this for about 3 days straight. Remember all the moments you had with your Sims, building their walls, choosing their floors, and decorating their house only to kill them because you're an evil bastard?

    Well, I've ported about over 2,500 textures. Very few are bumpmapped, but all are pretty high quality and great for interior scenes. I've organized the textures by what material they're made of, and their purpose. I've ripped the textures from just about every addon for The Sims 2. So, here they are. I've got not much more to say, so on with the previews and links.



    Previews:



    Downloads:

    Base Sims 2 Textures

    Apartment Life Textures
    Open for Business Textures
    Celebration! Textures
    Family Fun Stuff Textures
    Free Time Textures
    Glamour Stuff Textures
    H&M Fashion Stuff Textures
    IKEA Stuff Textures
    Kitchen Stuff Textures
    Mansion & Garden Stuff
    Nightlife Textures
    Pets Textures
    Seasons Textures
    Teen Stuff Textures
    University Textures
    Bon Voyage Textures


    Miscellaneous Art Textures

    Note that I accidentally named "Mansion & Garden Stuff" as "Museum". Too late to fix it now, but I thought I'd mention the mistake. Just drag the contents of each ZIP file straight into your materials folder.



    Happy mapping!

    Corey, thanks for releasing this!
    Would there be a chance that I could:
    A: <SNIP>
    B: Modify to perhaps produce some 'grittier' textures
    C: Add some more realism to such a vibrant texture style

    And if so, I'll be releasing them here on FP, but are there any legal issues to worry about?

    UPDATE:

    Base Sims 2 Texture Pack updated to include all available bumpmaps from the game.

    Note that none of the addon textures have bumpmaps, so I couldn't do much about that.

    Thank you for this. I can finally use my favourite textures ever in Source!

    Did you port these using SimPE or Homecrafter Plus?

    Is there a download with ALL of the textures?

    and could you upload the VMF of the map in video?

    I don't plan on exporting every single texture from the game (like the individual model textures for furnishings), but I did get all the floor, wall, and some ceiling textures that I could find. I had to click and export each texture individually, there is no batch operation so it takes a long time. As for the VMF, here you go.

    Other textures I made (required for the map, made them from Photoshopped pictures of my own house)

    Oh baby that's the stuff.

    Edited:

    If I had enough time on my hands I would fiddle with specular/bumpmaps/cubemaps on all of them, but I don't. Maybe one day.

    This is the motherload. Great job organizing the materials very neatly. Also, I may create specular/bumpmaps for the base textures if I even possibly have time for it.

    Are there any glass/window textures in any of these packs?

    Edit: Can someone explain bumpmaps/specular?

    There is one glass texture, but it's not a window. It's the glass blocks like those found in this picture:


    Bump maps give the illusion of height on a texture. Spec maps have something to do with shininess, though you may want someone else to explain spec maps, I really never used them.

    I tried the Sims 3 at a friend's house. I didn't like it all that much, so I never bought a copy. Maybe one day when all the expansions come out I'll buy it all and get all the textures from it, as well as enjoy the game.

    That must have been a lot of effort, honestly. I do wish I had the same attention span as you OP, to do this kind of stuff. It would be nice having more people around in this world like you.

    It's on ToyBox. You can download it via garry's mod and go to your ToyBox folder and go to models/sims/ for the models and materials/models/sims/ for the materials.

    When you're in Garry's Mod, open up ToyBox. The screen you see that shows all the new stuff is the page with the clickable picture to download.

    Went into SDK with my troll face on (i like silverware) and every sims texture was pink and black. I installed it correctly, so lemme guess:
    it requires yet ANOTHER useless fucking game just for textures? Please reply, I'm thoroughly pissed.
