This adds a selection of lot traits to the (base)game that determine the outfit category sims wear on that lot:
  • Casual - Everyday Outfit
  • Black Tie - Formal Outfit
  • Sports Spot - Athletic Outfit
  • Chill Out - Sleepwear
  • Party Zone - Party Outfit
  • Swimming Hole - Swimwear
  • Career Opportunity - Career Outfit
  • Clothing Optional - Bathing Outfit (Nude)

Everybody, also bar crew and such, will adhere to the dress code - when possible:
  • Lot traits are a weak interaction compared to sim traits and object interactions, so those will override the outfit
  • To wear a career outfit, a sim needs to have one
  • Some generated roles will have their uniforms on. These can change into the dress code upon interaction
  • When the lot has more then one of these assigned, all bets are off

In all however, it allows for party dress at clubs, black tie lounges, cafe's where sims stop over from work, and even nudist terrains.

Update:
Oct 7th 2017 - Separated the moodlets and such to a different mod (Lot Trait Moods). Renamed "Party Place" to "Party Zone". Optimized the xml structure.

Cool. Can you please make a version without the moodlets? I get more than enough of that in the vanilla game. :-)
Plus, they might interfere with the stories we're trying to play out. For example, if I'm pretending to have a funeral/black tie affair, I might not want everyone to be confident.

This sounds great but isn't there already a Party Place Lot Trait in the game?

Not in my version (B, GTW, GTT)... though I did see something in a screenshot by someone else.

I'll rename it in an update this weekend.

Thank you for making this, I've been looking now and then for some mod to assign dress codes to doors (never occurred to me that it could be done like this instead), so this is great. I, uh, have to add to the others here and ask if you are considering making a version without the mood buffs at all?

So now it is not appropriate to say that there already is a Mod like this out there? Really?

One would have to know about that, right? There's many mods that do basically the same thing (hell, think of all the skin and body mods alone), but the difference is generally in the details, personal preference and availability. For example I tried both Servo-for-sims-4 mods on this site and I wouldn't say one of the two would have to go.

Due to player feedback, I've renamed the Party Place to Party Zone (poke if that already exists) and separated the moodlets and such to other mods (submitted, so soon also on MTS! ).

Yep that's true but a quick google search outfit lot trait would have shown that there is a mod already out there. And it's not that i said "hey you copied mine". I just said that there is already a Dress Code Lot Trait out there but without the Buffs since some ppl here asked for a non Buff Version. So i don't know why the Admin deleted my first Post.

Now without the Buffs though it is kind of a Clone of the Dress Code Lot Trait ;P

To be honest, I've been using parts of this mod myself for about a year now and as such never had a reason to google for it. It's just that I recently decided to start putting the varied mods I made online. (I make them anyways, may as well share.)
And again: plenty mods and modding apps out there that do basically the same thing. That's something we all need to put aside and/or enjoy (choice!). I know you'll find nothing in mine copied from yours, because I never saw it... so not even the idea.

Besides, I'm just not going to track through 1000s of tumblrs and other sites that may, perhaps, have what I want if I can enjoy making it myself. And I advise anyone else to do so as well: it may generate some excellent mods!. If no-one can do anything simple anymore because others have done so before them, no-one can learn and get to a level where they can contribute more advanced stuff others have not made yet. If people look at anything I made and are inspired to make something new, that would only be excellent.

Why the admin removed your post may be related to you advertising a different cc site? I recall there's something in the rulebook here about that. (I never saw your post)

I agree with that part. But if xx People only do Mods that do exactly the same nothing comes out of it. Again i did not complain and said that you copied anything since you had buffs in there while i have not. So this would have given People a choice to use a Mod like this with or without Buffs. Now there are just two Mods out that do exactly the same so no "real" choice here.

I personally always try to look if a new Mod i want to make is already out there. Sometimes i don't find anything but if i find out later that there was indeed a Mod like this before mine i contact the Modder and ask if they want me to delete mine. If i find a Mod out there that already does what i'm planing i simply don't make it or only for my personal use and don't upload it.

I also don't think they deleted my Post because i mentioned my Site (without a Link) because as far as i know Links are only disallowed in the Description but well only the Admin knows the Reason...

thank you. will this make them dress in random outfits or the outfits that we have assigned to that category? that is the only "issue" I have found with other mods like this...the game does a random outfit and sometimes it leaves much to be desired what it chooses! LOL!

Well, try it out... in my experience it does not do any randomising but just gives you what is assigned as these outfits in CAS.

Of course, if you do not assign anything specific in CAS, they will have their random generated stuff on.
