UPDATE 4: This update fixes a Maxis issue with furious witch walk-bys. Furious witches will now appear from one of the walking portals rather than fly in, because furious sims are always supposed to walk to the lot. You may also want to get my Lot Visit Mod which adds a lot more sense to how the game determines which visitor to bring to a lot, and also fixes issues with the way the game chooses which furious sim to bring to a lot.

UPDATE 3: Downtown slobs and ghosts won't appear in formalwear or sportswear anymore.

UPDATE 2: Sims still had a chance to appear in either formalwear or sportswear when you hosted a party like Pool Party or Slumber Party. Sims will now appear in proper clothes when you throw a special party like that. If you host a party like House Party, Sports Party or Bonfire Party, sims may appear in everyday clothes, formalwear or sportswear.

UPDATE 1:
- The mod is now compatible with my New Parties mod.
- The mod does not check the sim's turn-ons and turn-offs any more for compatibility with my New Turn Ons mod, in case you are using a version of that mod that replaces the formalwear turn-on.
- Neat and Serious personality have more effect on whether the sim chooses to wear formal clothes. Active personality has more effect on whether the sim chooses to wear sportswear.
- Sims who are at a higher job level have a slightly higher chance to appear in formalwear. Sims who are in the Politics, Law or Business careers have an even higher chance of appearing in formalwear.
- Sims who are in the Athletics career have a higher chance of appearing in sportswear.
- Plantsims and active Werewolves will not appear in formalwear or sportswear any more.

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION

In every single Sims game, sims simply do not know how to wear anything other than their casual clothes. Sims 3 and 4 slightly improved on this by giving the player some control over uncontrollable sims either through new events or interactions, but even in those games, sims always wear casual clothes if left on their own. But, why? It especially hurts Sims 2, because this game has turn-ons and turn-offs. One of them is formal wear.

This mod makes it so that sims can appear in outfits other than just casual wear. Whenever a sim appears on a lot, either from the two portals on the sides, or when they arrive on a lot in a vehicle, there is a chance that the sim will arrive in formal or sports wear. NPCs (Mascot, Cheerleader, Grand Vampire etc.), Vacation Locals, Employees (if working on the current lot), and the Diva are excluded for obvious reasons. Your currently controlled sims and those sims who were already with you (in a group etc.) are obviously excluded as well. Here is how the mod works:

Whenever a sim appears on a lot and if they are NOT a party guest:
- There is a 15% base chance the sim will appear in their formal wear.
- The chance is increased by 50% if the sim has a turn-on for formal wear.
- The chance is decreased by 50% if the sim has a turn-off for formal wear.
- The chance is increased by -4/+4 per 100 Sloppy/Neat, and +4/-4 per 100 Serious/Playful.
- The chance is increased by 10% if the lot is a community lot.
- The chance is increased by 10% if the neighbourhood is Downtown.
- The chance is decreased by 30% if the neighbourhood is Vacation.
If the chance succeeds, the sim appears in their formal wear. However, if it fails, then the game checks to see if the sim should appear in their sportswear:
- There is a 5% base chance the sim will appear in their sports wear.
- The chance is increased by 10% if the sim has a turn-on for Athletic.
- The chance is decreased by 10% if the sim has a turn-off for Athletic.
- The chance is increased by -4/+4 per 100 Lazy/Active.
- The chance is decreased by 10% if the lot is a community lot.
- The chance is decreased by 5% if the neighbourhood is Downtown.
- The chance is decreased by 5% if the neighbourhood is Vacation.
If the chance succeeds, the sim appears in their sportswear. However, if it fails, they will appear in their casual outfit.

Whenever a sim appears on a lot and if they ARE a party guest:
Basically, it is the exact same as above, but with the following differences:
- Sports Party: This is the only party to which sims have a chance to wear their sportswear. Sims will not wear their sportswear to any other party. Sims have a 25% base chance to appear in their sportswear to a Sports Party. Then, the game uses the main formula above to modify the chance.
- House Party: Sims have a 25% base chance to appear in their formal wear. Then, the game uses the main formula above to modify the chance. The game does not check for sportswear. It's either formal or casual.
- Birthday Party: Sims have a 50% base chance to appear in their formal wear. Then, the game uses the main formula above to modify the chance. The game does not check for sportswear. It's either formal or casual.
- Anniversary Party: Sims have a 90% base chance to appear in their formal wear. Then, the game uses the main formula above to modify the chance. The game does not check for sportswear. It's either formal or casual.
- Graduation Party: Just like in an unmodded game, dormies that you invite to your party will appear in their Graduation robes (Maxis seems to have intended this for atmospheric effect, which is understandable, that's what townies are mainly for). Everyone else has a 90% base chance to appear in their formal wear. Then, the game uses the main formula above to modify the chance. The game does not check for sportswear. It's either formal or casual.
- Wedding Party: Unmodified, because there is nothing wrong with it. All guests will arrive in their formal wear.

COMPATIBILITY:
- I can only guarantee that this mod will work if you have all EPs.
- I have many mods, and did not come across any conflicts. If you do, you will most definitely need to make a choice.

You need the latest version of 7zip or WinRAR to unrar this mod.
