Posted in the thread by SimGuruTatortot:

http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/641935.page

A free Mardi Gras set, previewed one outfit (I DO WANT):



An 18th century, Georgian set that I hope will include build mode, a preview of one outfit:



I know TDC95 will be happy that the store team took up his petition.

Finally! I'm really happy for TDC95. He/she has been asking for this for quite a while. I hope it's everything he/she wished it would be I'm feeling excited for the hair.
The mardi gras outfit is a recolor of a base game outfit with a jester hat hair. I hope there will be something interesting and new.

OK, the clothes is base game, but I did envision that jester hair with another outfit. I love it! I do hope it looks good in the game.

Okay, I might have squeeed a bit on haivng more historical clothes available. If I am going to play a legacy I want it to look like a legacy through the years. Specially if you can then do portraits to hang around the home.

I don't need more themed clothes I won't use; but more furniture that I also won't use can usually sucker me in.

Erm... Don't want to burst the bubble but we already have Jester hats, an oooold huge hat hair available for male and female for free at the store. Here's the link for the male one: http://store.thesims3.com/productDe...=OFB-SIM3:19506 And for the female: http://store.thesims3.com/productDe...ategoryId=11994
Yeah it's different from the new one but it looks more medieval-ish, the new one looks a bit... odd? We need more pics

That beautiful (rococo?) outfit would be puuurfect for a sim with the 'proper' trait ("chevaleresque" in french, beautiful name). Seeing the sim make his small reverence in it would be priceless! (well, 12 bucks in fact lol)

And now I have a five-stage plan for one of these sets. It goes something like this:

- Download 18th-century set with powdered wigs, etc.
- Make fops. Lots and lots of fops.
- Make Beau Brummell.
- Make dandies. Lots and lots of dandies.
- Sit back and allow one of my towns to degenerate into a perpetual dandy/fop brawl.

The fact that the rest of the town will be composed of bemused modern sims is irrelevant. This is going to be hilarious.

All I can think about is it being a "Black Adder"-esque version of the Scumthorpes.

...and that is not a bad thing.

Actually, you raise a good point there:

Now we can make Blackadder III sims.

Quick, somebody figure out how to make a decent sim of Rowan Atkinson! You can release a sim Mr Bean on here in the meantime! :D

That is the reason I like the Mardi Gras hat. I owned one something like that one long ago, and I just like them better than the medieval one. I think it is cute. I am not into medieval stuff anyway, so I am turned off to it. Sorry.

Just a note for accuracy, that outfit is not from medieval but Georgian era. It's about 400 years later.

I wasn't writing about the outfit from the 18th century set. I am speaking about the jester hat hair from the Mardi Gras set. That is all I was writing about. Minimimi said the jester hat she linked to in the store was medieval and I was answering back that I like the one coming out, not the one in the store that she linked to.

I'm nowhere expert in medieval or historical trends, I just wanted to remind yall that we already have jester hats because I figured since they're extremely old downloads everyone would have forgotten about it by now! So if anyone needs jester hats for a party you already have an alternative.

lewisb40 you changed your avatar! That ragtime hair is lovely, one of my favorites hairs.

#16 Old 3rd Feb 2013 at 1:34 PM
I second that! lewisb your new avatar is wonderful! Also, keeping on topic, I've just been waiting for an opportunity to use this:

As for me, I could always be persueded otherwise but I think I'll pass - I am just done with the dumb costumes that are always set for random/everyday. I had to recreate my entire TS3 folder and reinstall all my Store content and lots just to get rid of those idiotic animal costumes that came with Pets. And now I am so disgusted by those silly circus clothes that keep showing up on all my sims that I would uninstall them immediately...if only they would actually show up in the crappy launcher.

CLP is gonna be pissed.

I agree that unless it's NOT enabled for random, don't think I would want it. Good heavens knows I don't want my sim in jeans and a tank, wandering the streets of Sunset Valley and then run into that guy. Costumes yes. Formal, perhaps. Vampires or ghosts or such who are living in the past, why not? But please dear God, do not enable this for random.

And a build set that goes with that would be much appreciated. The build sets are so incomplete that I'd love to get one that really comes together well. One thing that I miss most from my TS2 games is my cc from phoenix_phaerie. That stuff was AMAZING and I keep waiting for it to be converted to TS3.

I can totally understand why someone wouldn't want it enabled for random, but I would. It'd be fucking hilarious, especially with some of the other CC I have.

Jester hat, Jeffree Star "IT'S ONLY GAY IF YOU SWALLOW" tshirt, red miniskirt and high heeled boots. On a man.

Best Sim.

If you are familiar with S3PE you can fix that. If not, it's quite simple anyway.

1- Go to C:\Users\Username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\DCCache

2- Open dcdb0 in S3PE 3- Sort by name

4- Find the THUMB and the corresponding CASP of whatever outfit, hairs, or shoes you wish to override.

5- Right click on the THUM and the CASP and "Export to file". To be organized, make a folder for them anywhere you want. You don't have to export the thumbnails but it makes it easier when you can see which file you are modding.

6- When you have extracted all the files you wish, close dcdb0 and open the next one dcdb1 if you have another one and export the files you wish.

7- Once that's done create a new file in S3PE.

8- Right-click on the white empty space and import from file. Import all files you extracted. It will ask you if you want to save the file after importing. You can do that now if you want. I name mine StoreCAS_Overrides and I save it in the folder where my exported files are as a backup. You can do that or not.

9- Once everything is imported, click on a CASP. You will see info on each CASP and the right such as:
Clothing: 0x00000005 (Top)
DataType: 0x00000008 (Body)
AgeGender: 0x00012030 (YoungAdult, Adult, Female, Human)
ClothingCategory: 0x0020002A (Everyday, Sleepwear, Athletic, ValidForRandom)

If you also do not think the item you are looking at should be in the everyday category or any other weird category you can change that.

10- Now look toward the bottom of S3PE and you will find: Hex, Value, Grid. Click on grid.

11- A dialogue will open up. Click on the + for ClothingCategory. It will expand your options. You will see everyday, formal, sleepwear, etc. Now you can go down to where it says Valid for Random and make that false. Once you made all the changes you want, click commit at the bottom.

12- Do this for all your CASP and then save you new package.

13- Put the file in your overrides.

All done. The reason you should make a file separate from your dcdb0, dcdb1, etc. files is that you don't have to worry about what happens to your game files if anything does happen with regards to patching and such. You have your file no matter what.

I agree with matrix, that is a lot of work, but I do need to do just that. Thanks for the tutorial, ViolettaVie!

Also:
- Make Almack's
- Make a legit 18th century "gaming hell" with rococo everything
- Make Vauxhall Gardens
- Create and play all the best pairs of Georgette Heyer couples/their families. (I partcularly want to create Frederica and her younger siblings...)

You're welcome.

I wish we didn't have to do this but EA has a problem with categorizing things properly. The least they could do is give us options in CAS to decide what is for random and for what category.

Can I use your method to fix career clothes? I hate my sims have random, stupid sets where most times my sims are barefoot and have shorts and a bikini top. This is peeving me off the most.

Sure, the option for career clothing is there too. You can also choose outerwear but that is listed as unknown12.
