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.
These are texture replacements for ufbodyslinkyskirtboots, the base game's long, straight skirt with boots for adult and elder females. I made individual replacement packages for each skirt, so you can decide which ones you want to replace. Each skirt's replacements are in a separate rar file, and the packages are Compressorized.

Liz softened the fabric on the swirly "blackgoth" skirt, gave it new boots, and made a number of recolors, which prompted me to take a second look at the mesh and the style. She gave me permission to use her textures, and with so many to choose from, I didn't even try to settle on just one replacement set, though I mostly stayed close to the Maxis color scheme. The replacement packages are tagged to show which Maxis texture they replace and which one of Liz's colors they use.

Liz kept the Maxis bumpmap for the blackgoth skirt, but the other three Maxis skirts use different bumpmaps, so their replacement packages have replacement TXMTs that use the bumpmap for the blackgoth skirt. I was able to edit the bumpmapping for the boots out of the Maxis blackgoth bumpmap, and the replacement packages for the blackgoth skirt use this edited texture as a replacement bumpmap.

You can mix and match the replacement packages as you choose, so long as you only use one replacement for each skirt. If you use more than one replacement for a skirt, the game will use the one that loads last, which may not be the one you want. Since these packages are texture replacements, they can be used with HP's replacement mesh or Cat's untuckable replacement mesh. One texture replacement can replace part of another, so you can use these packages with another texture replacement for ufbodyslinkyskirtboots, as long as they load after it. However, the bumpmapping may be off unless you use a replacement package for the blackgoth skirt. You will need to remove any other default for fbottomslinkyskirtboots that replaces both the AF and EF skirts before using these packages.

You can use these packages with my elder-only replacements, but they will need to load before the elder-only packages. You should be able to use these packages with any other default for fbottomslinkyskirtboots that only replaces the adult or elder skirts. Of course, if you are using separate defaults for the AF and EF skirts, you will need to remove one of them before using these packages.

Note: Whether or not the skirts will appear for YAF depends on what, besides University, is installed. I've included an optional category mod that you can use to enable them for YAF, if they do not already appear for that age. If you need this mod, see the Place in Program Files section under the Install Instructions tab for instructions on how to install it.

The screenshots were made using Cat's replacement mesh. Visit Liz's original thread to see how the skirts will look on the Maxis AF mesh.
