Updates: The previously unlocked career outfits have been removed from this mod due to all the issues they were having with not showing up for their careers. - Jan 24, 2008
Enabled outfits to work for Young Adults. Also fixed a compatibility issue involving some clothes showing up in the catalog as custom instead of maxis! Credits to jordi for finding these issues. - Aug 27, 2007
New features include smaller file size and added the requested outfits!

Ok, anyone else getting tired of those three/four athleticwear choices for your adult sims? Disgusted when a sim grows up into wearing an outfit that TOTALLY SHOULD BE an athleticwear choice? No longer will these problems plague you! Introducing a GAME MODIFICATION that will fix all that! This mod will move (and removed, depending on which file you pick) the sweatsuits, tracksuits, AND MEN'S JUMPSUITS (by popular request) to the Athleticwear tab. Now there is also the option to remove the Teen Girl's 'Hip' Workout attire from the Everyday tab. (It's already in Athleticwear, so if you want to keep it in Everyday, don't download that file.

If you happen to like having sportier options in your Everyday tab then I suggest that you get the 'Added' file. If you don't ever want to see them again in Everyday, pick the 'Moved' file. ONLY PICK ONE!

Installation Instructions:
Make a subfolder in the following location and put the files there instead of in your Downloads folder. C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Seasons\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins (or whichever is your highest expansion pack folder).

You can put these files 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 Athleticwear bin, delete these package files from where you installed them to.

This game mod will work with all other clothing mods that do not involve these Athleticwear clothes. Any that modify these WILL clash (I don't know of any, but someone might have thought of it) I also have a version out where I have moved ALL clothes that I thought were in the wrong category. Get that here


(If you aren't into game modifications, I have a version where these clothes, and a few others, are basically treated as custom content. Adult Teen Elder)

Additional Credits:
My thanks go to Sophie-David who pointed out in my other post that this could be done as a mod.

To fanseelamb for doing the Outerwear version that I based this off of and explaining to me a few of the reasons why it wouldn't work at first and explained how to make the file size smaller.

And to CarmeeKitty, who saved my butt by supplying me with backup files when I accidentally overwrote my entire clothing catalog in the process of making this mod.
