Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a small package that enables Hysterical Paroxysm's Puff Sleeved Sundresses as maternity replacements. As with normal maxis maternity wear the outfit is picked at random. There are hacks that allow you to choose what outfits pregnant sims wear, but I'm way too lazy to micromanage in that way, so I prefer a nice set of replacements.
This mod does not require any "pregnant sims wear anything" hack, but should be compatible with them.

This is not a stand-alone package; you need to download and install the mesh and recolours from HP. Specifically these files:
CMESH_AF_O_Sundress_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_60sGreenFlowers_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Black_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_BlueandRed_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Brown_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_DkBlue_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Green_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_LtBlue_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Pink_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_PinkYellowDiamonds_HystericalParoxysm.package

There are 9 Maxis maternity outfits, so I could only use 9 of HP's dresses. To avoid having to make any hard decisions I just went with the first 9 (alphabetically).

Because the outfits are randomly assigned, I didn't get screenshots of all the different recolours; tat would just require too many test pregnancies; go to the original download for previews.

Note! This is a replacement package. You can only have one maternity replacement set installed at a time. This is not compatible with anything else that modifies the default maternity outfit mesh.

hi, I love your work!!! But I have a problem. It's the same that lightmylamb had, so if you, or anyone else, knows how to solve it I'll be grateful. Resuming, the problem is that the recolours works, but they're put over maxis mesh for maternity clothes. No other maternity replacements in the game.

dnog86 - did you put the mesh for this in a subfolder? If so, take it out and put it in your main downloads folder.

Did you go follow the directions and download the mesh? Should have asked that first, huh

As I had put the mesh in a subfolder, I follow your advise and changed it to my main downloads folder. I followed the directions and downloaded the mesh and recolours plus the replacement file, but it doesn't work yet. Thanks for your help ^__^.

By the way, I put both files, replacement and mesh, in my main downloads folder, and the recolours in saved sims.

I don't think this issue has anything to do with where you put the files. It worked perfectly before I installed BV. Still waiting for an update Please, please, please...

I made it worked with Insimenator (last update for BV). So the only thing I did was to use the Insimenator. My pregnant sim bought clothes for pregnant sims, as the ones of this post, and after that, I made her to put them on her (with the Insimenator again, since I have it in spanish I don´t know how are the names for the paths in english, use the Wardrobe (?) mod). Be careful with the clothes, because not all of them come for pregnant sims explicit in Insimenator. For this dresses look in casual sections, although it looks like if your sim wasn't pregnant, after you choose it, she will look lovely pregnant. My english is not really good, so if I didn't explain myself clearly, you can post your questions here that I'll be going by usually in order to help you. ^__^
Coffee, anyone?

I find this odd, as I have BV and these replacements have worked perfectly for me. Not a spot of bother. *shrug*

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

You can never have more than one replacement set of the same file in the game at any time.

Well Thanks! (Im Tiffanielovesthesims I gave up that account )
Should I delete the PregMorph_afBodyMaternityShirtPants.package from my downloads? These are awesome!

I like! A much needed default replacement. I had asked on here a year or more ago if someone could take the maxis version and just recolor them into normal jeans and solid or cool print tops, as the mesh doesn't bother me as much as the hideous colors. But, as no one seemed to take me up on that suggestion, I like your replacement just as much!

I love this replacement it's so much nicer than the maxis stuff. I also have BV installed and no major problems. There is one thing I want to ask about.

I know it picks random from the 9 dresses but my game uses the same dress over and over the blue and red one. Any suggestions as to why?

Thanks

Hi!

I love this idea, because as most other posters have mentioned the Maxis maternity wear was hideous.

Only one small problem, all my pregnant sims are wearing the same dress. Its the blue dress with the little red bears on it. How do I change/fix this so it is random?

I have all the EP and SP except the holiday ones.

Thanks. On my father's laptop I use Pregnant Wear Any Outfit Hack, but on my PC it doesn't works (maybe cause I don't have Seasons here?). So I've installed Your pregnant replacement here on my PC and I can enjoy well dressed pregnancies Thank you very much

If I could add something, for me it works good. One pregnant sim is wearing the black one dress, and another blue-red. I'll test it on other pregnancies, if I'll have them Now one will be getting married

i'm having some problems mentioned here. i have base, nightlife, ofb, seasons, ft, and al installed, plus all stuff packs (minus mansions and gardens, and all holiday ep/sp). as well as the hack that replaces all maxis clothes to have the preg-morphs. here are my problems.
when the sim is changed into maternity (whether she is popping or i tell her to) the colors and length the dress would be are correct, but i guess it is still using the maxis maternity mesh? i have a picture...(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...nityproblem.png)
i am about to re download everything mentioned in the post.

That's the exact same problem I'm having. I downloaded HP's stuff, downloaded this, and when I went into my game, my pregnant sim looked exactly like yours does in that screenshot. It's been a long time since anyone's posted in here, so if anyone notices this and somehow comes up with a solution, that'd be great. I'm so tired of the regular maxis stuff, and these replacements would have been perfect.

Anyone find a way to fix this yet? I really don't want to have to delete it. But I have all eps except AL, and I think it just doesn't work with BV like everyone says.

Those of you who are having this problem: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...nityproblem.png
Please note that you CAN NOT have these replacements: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=237740
In your game with this replacement!!! They are conflicting mesh replacements and CAN NOT be used together! You must have ONE OR THE OTHER. You can have the replacements for all except for the Maxis maternity wear. You must search for and DELETE the file called "MESH_tmo-Default-PregMorph_afBodyMaternityShirtPants.package" from your Downloads folder in order for this to work correctly!
