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.
There have been a lot of great conversion meshes recently that come with the original Maxis textures as recolours -- perfect for people who don't have the EPs they're converted from, but for those who do it results in a lot of duplicate textures. My poor old computer can't handle a lot of custom content, so I made a couple of edits for these meshes that reference the in-game textures directly instead. They only weigh in at 1-2k each, as opposed to 200-800k, which makes quite a difference when you're hoarding these things like I do.

All edits will require the EP (if any) that the mesh is converted from. This is part 1 of 2, with edits that require the Base Game, OfB, or Seasons (see part 2 for Freetime stuff). All of the original Maxis colours are included.

Files below are for the following meshes (mesh is always included except where otherwise noted):

Base Game:
cloudlessnights - AM_BGConversionsOpenShirt (TM->AM conversion of open shirt)
Vertices: 1614, Faces: 2170
cocomama - tfshirtuntuckedoxford (AF->TF conversion of capri+shirt)
Mesh not included (please d/l from original thread)

cocomama - tftankdresspants (AF->TF conversion of tank top+pants)
Mesh not included (please d/l from original thread)

cloudlessnights - AF_SConversionsSnowboarder (TF->AF outerwear conversion)
Vertices: 1524, Faces: 2084
cloudlessnights - AM_SConversionsSnowboarder (TM->AM outerwear conversion)
Vertices: 1553, Faces: 2202
cloudlessnights - AM_SConversionsParkaBoots (TM->AM outerwear conversion)
Vertices: 1887, Faces: 2440

You can do what you want with this. Please link back to this thread when redistributing. Please respect that I don't do requests.

Thanks to cloudlessnights and cocomama for making these meshes, and to Phaenoh for some of her recent conversions which helped me figure this out =)
