This tutorial, an alternative for PC users to editing STR#200 (the bodystring) manually, is over in the Themes forum.

Additional sources for learning to hack Sims Objects:

(Mac Only) Understanding BHAVS (IffSnooper)
Peter Gould shows how to edit BHAVs using IffSnooper. Includes "translating" from IffPencil to Iffsnooper allowing Mac users to benefit from the hacking tutorials that are out there written for IffPencil

EDIT This tutorial is now available at www.atelierquebec.ca/iffsnooper/BHAV/bhav1.html

Inrez Sims Hacking Tutorials (iffpencil)
Download tutorials that teach how to Child Enable Cooking objects and another on adding Custom foods (single serving) to any refrigerator
http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/inrezsims/

Real Sims - Tutorial : Recloning objects (hex editor, t-mog)
(PC) Advises you delete RSMP and let Tmog generate a new one. (note: This is not something I am familiar with)
http://www.therealsim.com/recloningusingtmog.shtml

Real Sims - Tutorial : Adding Sprite Rotations to an object (iffpencil, T-mog)
Teaches swapping the graphics resources using Iffpencil instead of editing the XML
http://www.therealsim.com/sims1addingrotations.shtml

Simania's Sim Support page
Not all articles here are on hacking but the hacking ones are good. Lots of good information rather than simple "do this, do this do that" instructions.
http://simania.nl/ssp/ssp.htm

Simply Enchanted (for PC users)
Three tutorials (for PC users) that cover 1) swapping animations and sounds, motive adjustment and alter budget, 2. changing cooking/mech to other skills, and 3. Creating a custom animation (touches on simpose instructions) and attaching that to a mirror. These are very old tutorials that include using 'Script Station'. The 3 tutorials themselves are great, however. Those who have completed Sims College's Entry Level Hacking classes should b able to figure out how to use IffPencil for everything quite easily.
http://www.comm.unt.edu/~ktaylor/simplyenchanted/tutorials.htm

Some Sim Things - Hacking Tutorials (IffPencil)
Several tutorials that address some of the most common concerns: Removing the EP requirement line in objects, Increasing motives (in a bed) and a series of 6 tutorials altering a shower in many ways (removing floods, removing "shoo", never gets dirty, adjusting current motive, adding other motives and adding roomscore)
http://www.somesimthings.com/

The Secret Society of Woobsha :: Woobsha Workshop
General hacking information for both Mac and PC users along a few tutorials including changing an NPCs skins, turning an object into a light source and making an object with glow in the dark parts
http://www.woobsha.com/diyworkshop.html

Wilf's Sims Stuff
The GUID list is invaluable. Teaches how to clone objects with an NPC. As this is an old site and often refers to using a HEX editor but all of this can be done with iffpencil.
http://members.lycos.co.uk/wilfjones/
warning: Pop-ups

gs Using Object ID to locate Object Conflicts (Object ID)
:win Mars explains in detail how to locate and fix object ID conflicts using the free, PC program "Object ID" . Includes a link to the program (you'll want your popup blocker on before going to that link, however)

Thanks for pointing us to this great tutorial, eisbaer!

I was just pokin' about at The Sims1 Depot and there's a really great Simpose Tutorial there. This is not a tutorial on making animations with simpose it's a tutorial for USING Simpose, introducing you to all of the features and settings.

Sims College's Entry Level Hacking Lessons
http://www.woobsha.com/SimsCollegeArchive/

The Entry Level class was designed for people who have never before hacked, or have very little working knowledge of hacking. The objective is to introduce the terminology and concepts used in hacking, as well as a basic hands-on training to be used as a solid foundation for the ensuing classes. During the 4-week course, students covered:
  1. Motives, Advertisement, and a brief look at the programs used.
  2. Moods, Motives and Behaviors
  3. Exploration of Sounds and Animations
  4. Functions and BCON Modification

Intermediate Level hacking is designed to take the students several steps further into the world of hacking, and serves to promote good programming skills and a more developed understanding of how objects work in The Sims game. Prospective students should have a basic understanding of terminology and object functions.
Requirements: Either some hacking knowledge or completion of Entry Level Hacking.

The four Intermediate Hacking Lessons cover:
  1. Variable types, Global calls, and Person type/gender filters
  2. Motives, Skills and interests (beds and chairs)
  3. More on Interests (bookcases)
  4. Introducing Graphics Resources and Randomizing Events (includes adjusting the family budget)

Note: SimsCollege.com originally held online classes. The classes ended some time ago but the owners of the site left the material online so other would be able to use them as tutorials. These Entry Level Hacking Lessons are reprinted here with kind permission of the author for those how are having trouble accessing the originals at the Sims College Classrooms site.

The Simstitution files appear to have disappeared from the Wayback machine. Does anyone have a better link or even the pages?

The old BHAV tutorial link is no longer valid since Apple closed the homepage.mac.com sites.

The tutorial is now at

Thanks Bruja smile

I have added a couple more pages to the tutorial since the original 2006 version delved deeper into hex editing resources than necessary nowadays.

I've written a tutorial on how to use Codex, a less popular but very useful object hacking tool but I'm not sure where it fits in on the list (or I would edit the post and add it myself).

Here's a link to the google doc.
