Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This mod hides *all* the default Maxis clothing & hair (+hats) from the game from the catalog. Included are the base game and the expansion packs.
I have not included the X-mas outfits (use this mod).

Just place the files into your Downloads or SavedSims folder. If you want them back, just remove the package.

You will still be able to use all these clothes and hairstyles in debugging mode of CAS, but not normally or when buying clothes. Also, townies should no longer be able to pick hairstyles & clothes from hidden sets — this means that if you hide everything except the FFS outfits, all townies will only wear FFS clothes. If you hide /everything/, this backfires: townies will select clothes from all sets again. But your Sims still won't see them when buying clothes, and they won't show up in CAS
Townies /will/ use custom hair & hats, as long as they're properly binned.

These mods will also hide all Maxis clothing and hair from Bodyshop.

HideClothesXP0 hides the base game clothes,
HideHairXP0 hides base game hair,
XP1 hides University clothes + hair,
XP2 hides Nightlife clothes + hair,
XP3 hides Open for Business clothes + hair (including the mascot outfits),
SP1 hides Family Fun Stuff clothes + hair, and
SP2 hides Glamour Life Stuff clothes + hair.
XP4 hides Pets clothes + hair
XP5 hides Seasons clothes + hair,
SP4 hides Celebrations! clothes + hair
SP5 hides the H&M Fashion stuff (just clothes, there's no hair in this pack)

Please note
This mod will not fully work if you use any clothing unhiders or other mods which enable hidden clothes. I suggest you remove all other clothing mods if you still see Maxis clothes.
Also, because of how the game works, you should get all mods for your expansion packs, or unexpected results may occur: later expansions actually /enable/ a lot of clothing, so if you do not get all files you will still see some of these clothes or hair.

Does this take away the babies diaper?, I'd hate to lose that as I dont have any replacement diapers.

Default I think I found a small bug.
Thanks for your wonderful works. I really love everything you've done. I found one small bug that newly generated townies always wear only one left Maxis original clothes. So Every New townies wear same Maxis clothes. Their hairs are working perfectly. Every new sim has beatiful custom hair but their clothes are still Maxis's. I tried making sims at Bodyshop, it happend again. I'm asking you,too. Could you do a separate hack one is for the clothes and another is for the hair?

I'll probably re-do this one in a while, I've now figured out an easy way to skip clothes which are hidden anyway. It should be possible to split it into a no-clothes and no-hair mod as well.

It's no surprise that townies use only 3~4 outfits with this mod installed: there's nothing else to select from! I'll do some more testing to see if I can somehow fool the system into picking custom clothes, but little success so far.

No ETA on an update, as I don't actually use this mod myself. But as soon as I have some time left (Easter) I'll see what I can do ^.^

PS: I am not going to make a Family Fun Stuff hider. There is absolutely nothing in the new mini-XP that looks interesting to me (just objects, no new interactions or anything: even the X-mas pack had some new socials!) so I won't buy or install it.

This is an awesome find, and something that I have been looking for! Now I can have *just* custom content in my game. Thank you- Awesome!

Okay I have uploaded a mod which now hides *all* XP0 clothes (at least, in my game). I have not hidden any of the XP0 hair since many requested this.

As with the other files, I don't actually use it myself so testing has been limited. If you use HideClothesXP0 and hideallXP1/hideallXP2/hideallXP3 you should not have any Maxis clothes left. No clue what will happen to townies…

HidehairXP0 is up for those of you who hate Maxis hair.

HideallXP0 is now no longer supported as it has been fully replaced by better working versions.

Hi Jordi, Great mod but I have a problem in my game. I have placed all 5 files into my game but it seems that only the Maxis hair is hidden. I still have all the Maxis clothes still showing up. Any ideas why? Thanks. P.S. I have all EPs except the Holiday Pack and the Family Fun Stuff

Braveheart: that is weird… are you sure you have ‘HideClothesXP0.package’ in your download folder?
Maybe some mod is interfering with it in some way. Try renaming it to ‘zzz HideClothesXP0.package’ or (if you use subfolders) put it in a ‘zzz’ subfolder.

Braveheart: I just tested this mod's files as the only content in my downloads folder, and (with the exception of some student clothes I apparently missed) I could not find any Maxis outfits except the Xmas clothes (which I won't hide as Morague has done this before). So I am certain it must be a mod conflict somewhere.

Since I'll have to redo the XP1 mod anyway to add in the four outfits I missed, I might as well split the clothes and hair hiders as I now did for XP0. If anyone wants this, let me know.

Found the last outfits left unhidden. Now I have *everything*.

Thanks for responding Jordi. I renamed the folder with your hacks in it so that it starts with 'zzz'. This had addressed most of the issue but I still had some NPC clothing showing and had to figure out why. I now realize that the conflict I had was with Motoki's clothing equality mod called 'Maxis adult clothes for A YA & E' Its located at MATY and here is the link The two mods do conflict.

That is expected: any mod which *enables* clothing (such as much of Motoki or Morague's stuff) will counteract this mod. Thanks for checking this.

#40 Old 29th Apr 2006 at 4:35 AM
Now that I got the conflict straightened out, I have found there are 3 more Maxis outfits that still show. See attached pics. I have downloaded your latest update. Otherwise, everthing is working great. Thanks again

#1 is the DJ outfit, #2 a hidden workout suit, and #3 is the warrior outfit.
All three are part of the base game but are hidden by default.

Some other mod must be enabling them.

FFS stuff added. This pack has almost no content so this was quickly done…

Got it figured out. I found another copy of Motoki's file had made it into my downloads folder. All is well now. Nothing but custom content showing. Great job Jordi! Thanks

This is great! Is there a way to hide expansion pack(s) clothes only? I like the hair (minus the hats), it's the clothes I hate.

I'll split the clothes and hairstyles for the expansion packs at some later point.

I dont see how it can be used effectively.

EDIT: Plus from what I'm reading, everybody hates what comes with the game, if you hate everything about the game that makes it the game, then make the parts yourself and assemble a mutant game made out of many things. Then why not make your own game in the first place?

An excellent idea, but I have no idea how to do that!! But thank you for replying (even if I'm slow to check).

I still like those outfits, but now I don't like the hair so I'm going to download the hair hack. Will it conflict with the new hat-hide hack?

Maxis = brains, modders = looks.
Fabulous. I hate the base game's clothes and hair (but i'll keep nightlife's). But i agree with meremale, and if you take requests, jordi (or any modder reading this) PLEAASE a mod that hides all maxis saved sims
