I've been practicing hexing a lot since I got the game the other day, and I've decided to make a thread where I can record and share my adventures! I'm still very new at this, so expect my first few updates here to be a little lackluster and/or hilarious. 🎉
To start off with, I'd like to share a little discovery that can really help when creating Babyz hairstyles with Petz Workshop! I work best visually so I've been using Petz Workshop to hex most of my addballz and linez while I learn (as described in Aleisha's and Jamie's very helpful tutorials), but the inaccurate size of the head ball used in the base .cat file was frustrating me. It not only made getting proper placement much harder, but scale too; I ended up having to completely scrap a cute bun I was working on because I couldn't manage to reposition and resize everything properly once I popped it on a Babyz head. 😔 After a bit of experimenting, I managed to get the head in the .cat file to a much more accurate size.
Simply decrease the size of the head ball by exactly 50.
As an example, here are a couple addballz I placed on the side and the top of the resized head in Petz Workshop and then transferred, completely unedited, to the BabyzRez.dll.
Hopefully this quick adjustment makes using Petz Workshop a lot easier for visual workers like me! <3
This is a good idea! I've always wanted to hex hairstyles, and I never knew there was a visual way to do it! I never could because I couldn't actually see what I was doing until I looked in the game. Thanks for this!
Sharing my hexing process for a baby I've been working on over the past few days. I used aleisha 🥛's bunny ear code and ℓacey ✨'s hair bmps. This cutie will be up for adoption later today or tomorrow, along with 2 others that are also easter bunny-themed! <3
I'd love to hex with PW but I keep having problems with a few things. Since you've been using the PW base you may have come across these things so I was wondering if you would mind if I messaged you about them? I'd love to find a fix for them or figure out if it's just me having the problems lol.
