Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Update: FreeTime did something wonky the blue suit, it put them back in the swim category. Thanks to CarmeeKitty, I found out that this outfit is the career outfit for level 1, the 'Fish Chummer'. To counteract this, I have made decustomized copies of these outfit, and removed my defaults from them. The one labeled 'FreeTime' has only the blue outfit decustomized, the third .rar has them all decustomized and left the original swimsuits intact. If you download the third .rar (the one I'm currently advocating and supporting) then you do not need to download any other mover files. It's easier! Sorry for any inconvenience.
I don't think I need to say anything about Maxis only giving us three undies for grandma, and them all being the same relatively ugly style. To remedy this problem, I took three of grandma's ugly swimsuits and recycled them into undies. The install is a bit complicated, so listen closely. First, you can have some pics:
These are DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS, meaning, when you place them in your downloads folder, they will act as Maxis clothing, completely replacing their counterparts. This includes sims currently wearing them. If you want to remove mine and return to the maxis versions, just delete my package from your downloads folder. Btw, if you want your clothing catalog images to reflect these changes, delete your thumbnails folder: C:\Documents and Settings\(yourname)\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Thumbnails. The game will generate new ones. If you want not default versions, check out this thread of mine.
Inside the .rar are 2 folders. You don't need the folders but I gave them helpful names to remind you where to put things. The two files need to go in different places!! One of the files goes in your regular downloads folder. This one changes the outfit. It will make the swimsuit look like the picture. The other file moves the outfit into the underwear section. You need to put the file here:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Bon Voyage\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins (or whichever is your highest expansion pack folder).
You can put this file in your Downloads folder, but if you do, the delete button will be enabled in CAS and Body Shop. Do NOT delete them in CAS or Body Shop. Doing so may corrupt some of your game files. To remove the outfits from your Underwear bin, delete these package files from where you installed them to.
P.S. I love reading comments! Leave me a couple?
To May (my model), she fainted when I told her I wanted to do underwear shots next. She is getting over her modesty, but its a sad thing to see such a proper lady fall. I feel bad about it.
