I've got two more Theme catch-up uploads for you guys, I hope this still counts, since I've been so busy and had no time to upload these sets in these days. But I've been working on them for quite some time now. So, this is my entry for the theme Back to School.

A bunch of themed outfits for your little nerds, jocks and rebels to start school with... back to school, y'know!

When I read about the theme, I exactly knew what I wanted to do. But I wasn't sure which outfits I should age-convert. So, I went with the school themes instead and chose 3 outfits, which would be suitable for the jocks, 2 outfits for the rebels and 3 outfit for the nerds! (Or at least, to my interpretation, lol)

This set includes age-converted outfits from The Sims 2 Base Game (skater outfit, goth outfit, punk outfit, hoodie outfit), The Sims 2 University EP (basketball outfit, geek outfit), The Sims 2 Nightlife EP (cardigan outfit), The Sims 2 OFB EP (Asian/anime outfit) for the male children. All of the outfits are flagged in the everyday category only. (Just like EA's original outfits)

I've used the texture refering method when I created the recolor files, meaning, the files will require the EPs listed below (if it's an outfit from that EP) in order to load. Also, if you use default replacement textures, these outfits will also be affected by them. Furthermore, I enabled the outfits for townies and de-customized them. These meshes include a fully working fat morphs! They'll show up in the corresponding expansion pack/game catalogues.

Therefore, I recommend placing these downloads into your C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\*Latest EP/SP Pack\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins folder.
By default it's C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion & Garden Stuff\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins
If you have The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins

But you can also place them into your Downloads folder, just be CAREFUL and NEVER delete these outfits using the delete button in-game. Otherwise, you'll mess up your game files. If you want to delete these outfits, just remove them from the Downloads/Bins folder and you're good to go!
