The Sims 2 - Bump Map for Base Game Club Door 1

Since I learned how to make bump maps, I decided to make a subtle bump map for my favorite door. This is a default replacement to the door. Thankfully, there is no CC star that you see in some default replacement objects because this was not made in Object Workshop. As you can see with this bump mapped door, there are areas of shading and highlights that were not visible before. Bump maps cannot be seen by everyone. Only if you have a good enough graphics card will they be visible to you. This bump map also works on the Maxis recolors of this door. This will not work with custom recolors of this door. Enjoy!

How do you add bump maps to an object? I've been looking for instructions and not finding them. I have a set of doors I'm working on (phoenix faerie's pedimentary set: since she's left the community as far as I can tell, I feel like I can do this) and it's crying for bump maps. I've been looking all over MTS and not finding the answer.

Download the Part 5 pdf. It talks about bump maps. While you're at it, go ahead and pick up the rest of the tutorials in the article, they're very helpful! I've had this set of tutorials downloaded to my computer for years and years now comes in handy.
