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 MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
So for the longest time, I've wanted to have the tie from the Late Night top in use for something else other than a skinny tie. While attempting (and failing) to attach the tie to a basic oxford shirt, I had inspiration for making this top thanks to one of my bosses and one of my co-workers, both of whom regularly wear sweaters and bowties. Every time I see them around work I think, "They look great! Why don't my sim guys have clothes like that?"

Well, after more fighting with and screaming at multipliers than I want to acknowledge, now my sim guys have clothes like that. And now yours can too. :D

These tops are a combination of the "V-Neck Sweater" torso from the University EP and sleeves from various base game shirts. You do not need University installed for them to show in your game. They are base-game compatible, but you will have to be patched to patch level 1.55 or higher. All tops have three recolorable channels, with all morphs included. Enabled for everyday, formal, career, townies, and of course, outerwear. (If you have Seasons installed, that is!) Downloads are separated out--you can download just one, or some, or all sweaters in one file! (You can also download none, but then I will have sad face.)

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
