3D Graphics in The Sims 2
Everything is 3D in the The Sims 2 (almost), and that means almost everything you know about the mechanics of creating objects for The Sims won't apply to the new game.
Now, don't go dumping all your folders full of z-buffers and sprites and love bed animations into the trash can! There are still 10 million copies of The Sims installed in people's machines all over the world, so The Sims will be popular for a very long time!. Our purpose for this site is to tell you about The Sims 2, but the new game doesn't need to diminish the fun you have in creating things for The Sims, and it certainly won't diminish the number of fans who enjoy the original version of the game.
That said, let's talk about how the transition to a fully 3D world changes things for the object creator.
