Hi,

Something new? BHAV mods by Fat D? Is this a dream?
New Seasons version released
No, it's the clothes controller. It allows you to select what sims wear in a room and offers many ways to tell your sims to.

This object is split in four files.
1) fatd-clothescontroller.package - the object itself. It contains the main changing bit as well as the autonomous changing part. The set will not work without this one.
2) fatd-clothescontroller-doormod.package - the door modification. requires 1) and 3). It makes the "Change at door" option on the controller do what it is supposed to. Optional, but contains a nice function. Should trigger before autonomous redress.
3) fatd-clothescontroller-doormod-epbit.package - this little piece ensures compatibility to any previous, current or future EP. Ineffective without 2).
4) fatd-clothescontroller-changerglobal - the final enforcer. Neither the doormod nor the autonomous function can prevent sims from changing clothes inside. This can. Requires 1). Required for any of the "Clothes change within range" option except regular.

EP compatibility:
This object has been tested in an all-EP configuration and should work in any. If you find it doesn't work in yours, here a quick guide to set this up. The conflicting bit will most likely be the doormod, as it is the only hack that is based on an EP-dependant BHAV:
1) Open SimPE 2) Make sure your filetable contains the latest EP and excludes the download folder (default). Rebuild if you changed something.
3) Open the EPBit in SimPE 4) Use the "Import Semi-Globals" feature in SimPE to scan DoorGlobalsNew and import the "Function - Portal - SG".
5) Copy Group and Instance ID from the included BHAV to the newly added one. Commit the change.
6) Give the new BHAV any name. Commit.
7) Delete the old BHAV from the package.
8) Save the file.

Hack info:
The hack will clash with anything that alters the change clothes global 29c (modt Nudist hacks, not Crammyboy's) or the portal function (Dresscode system Global hack by Inge Jones (consider my mod a new version for that one), Pescado's "No unneeded coats" and "Authorized Personell only" older than 5.0). The latter one interferes with the door mod. Removing it removes the conflict, but makes the clothes changing a little less effective (should only matter under rare circumstances).

Object info:
Category: Decorative -> Wall hangings
Mesh: 24 vertices, 12 Faces
Look: Small box with everyday icons on it, sits near the ceiling in the middle of the tile

Moral info:
In respect to concerned parents of minors or those who are offended by simulated nudity, (and because of the odd behaviour when you don't have some hacks from the adult section here installed) the naked option has been hidden in the debug menu. It can be unhidden easily by editing the TTAB if you aren't one of those.

File info:
I use .rar files for the better compression, which helps me, MTS2 and most downloaders. If you don't have a .rar extractor, try this link. If you use Macintosh Operating system 10 (MacOS X) or similar non-windows Sims2-running systems, I am afraid I cannot support you.
However, I can give you a little help others have given.
1) at the WinRAR site they also have an OSX version of the command line tool they ship with their program.
2) A friend of mine reported that StuffIt works fine for him.
3) A user pointed out in a thread that UnrarX can also be used.
