    If you get the Sims 2, there is a painting called Red vs. Blue. If you watch the scene where Sam and Wade (or Duuurrnt.. hmm.. maybe more syllables) are on the porch, you will see a painting inside. It is a painting of a woman with red hair. That painting is called Red vs Blue. I think it's a painting of Tex.

    After you mentioned it I checked the videos again and found that painting shows up a couple times actually. It's in Dr. Chalmers' house in Episode 01, and it might very well be behind Nikki in the Intro (hard to tell, it's clipped off). Whether or not it's supposed to be Tex, well, who knows? But the RT guys must like it for one reason or another.

    I think it's name would be the reason behind it being picked.

    But why would EA games who are the maker of the Sims 2 (for those that live under a rock or somewhere similiar) put a picture of Tex in the game.

    i'm guessing that you can find it when youre purchasing it..... or at least thats how it worked in sims 1.... when you bought the stuff it gave you the name of what it was, plus a little description of it....

    Are you trying to be dirty?

    Oh, and since Hobbie wasn't actually saying anything mean or hurtful, I modded him back up. I guess I'm the only one who noticed his post was dripping with sarcasm... stained my shoe.

    good gravy..... i think its you people that have the dirty minds... all i was saying is that it would be funny if some programmer was a RvB fan and put a small something in the game that only true fans would notice...

    dude, i think most people would kill to slide in Tex...well, they would have when she was alive. now that she's a ghost possessing a robot, i think i'll leave her to her own devices...no pun intended (well, maybe just a little)

    could be possible, custom paintings CAN be made, quite simple really, when your sim can paint "Still Life" on the easel, attempt it and when it asks you to take a picture of where and what you want the sim to paint, it'll create a dumped TEMP file in the directory "My Documents\EA\Sims2\Storytelling\Snapshot.bmp" somewhere, just swap it with another and viola! Custom painting!

    That site should have more detailed instructions on how to accomplish this.

    Well games do that all the time. Like splinter cell they had Rayman 3 posers all over. They must have told them about the project and put in something for them easter egg!

    I don't have the Sims 2 but I do have the Sims for PS2 and that picture is in that version too. And I hate to burst all your bubbles but I think the name is probably a coincidence. The chick's hair is red and the background is blue. But I'm also a complete pessimist so I could be wrong.

    well even though it is likely a complete coincidence I still think its cool. Also it is also pretty weird that if you saw who was really under that mask this would be definate possibility.
