Updated 17 Sept 2008: Fixed issue with the fat morph asploding on the teen female halter top. Please redownload!

[size=4][color=indigo]Modesty Set?[/header1]

After getting Apartment Life, I was instantly smitten with the adorable textures and meshes for the clothes they had. However, I was NOT pleased with how much skin was showing on otherwise adorable outfits. Bellies hanging out all over the place! There's a time and place for that thing, and it's called the beach!

Yes, I'm a little old lady at heart. But I know I'm not the only one who tends to not use outfits that show too much skin!

So I fixed it. All of the outfits for teen and adult female (and those elder outfits that share adult female textures) are no longer midriffy!

I realize this may not be to everyone's taste and some people may like them just the way they were to begin with - but instead of calling me a puritan or something, just pass on by and find something else to fit your taste, k?

[size=4][color=indigo][b]Default Replacements![/header1]

All files here are default replacements - [b]they will completely replace the original outfits with my changes.
If you don't like that, don't download them! I have no plans to make non-defaults of these. If someone else wants to do that, go right ahead - I made these for my own use and figured I'd upload them to share. Don't ask for non-defaults or I will come to your house and eat all your pasta!

The textures are compressed as much as SimPE would let me compress them (no texture quality loss, by the way) so these should be relatively small in size despite being defaults.

[size=4][color=indigo]Other outfits?[/header1]

Yes, I'm thinking I might do the same thing for a lot of other too-revealing outfits from the base game and EPs. I work on my own time, my own schedule, and do 'em how I want, so please don't whine for me to do them - if I want to, I will. If I don't, I won't. Currently, I want to, but have a lot of other things to do too.

[size=4][color=indigo][b]Downloads are in Comments![/header1]

Because of the fact that I have nine different sets here, I am putting the downloads in the comments.

[b]The file attached to this first post is a useless file which you do not need so don't download it!
It's only attached because I have to in order for this thread to work as a proper download thread... and because it'll amuse me to see how many people download it anyway without having read this at all.

[size=4][color=indigo][b]Thanks to:[/header1]

Oh man, can't people design awesome outfits without the need to show skin? Thanks HP, I love what you've done with these. (even though I don't have AL and probably won't)

You can have as much dust as you like because it's got no calories!

Ohh, these are going to make those outfits so much more playable, thank you! I love the second hair too, the brown bob-type one; sorry to ask, but where did you find it?

(ps. Your avatar is giving me the biggest craving to watch Star Trek, seriously.)

Yay! Thank you, this has always bugged me... now I can actually use these outfits... I really hope you'll be making replacements for more maxis clothing

As you've heard several times over...

THANK YOU!! *^-^*

I don't mind some belly showing, but the chances that every teen, adult, and elder are dressed with all the goods hanging out... *nuh uh*
Okay, maybe the teens, bc they're teenagers, but not the mothers and grandmothers as well.

Thank you for the lovely defaults! Now my AL townies won't looks so trashy!

These look beautiful. I haven't got AL yet but I'm about to and then I'll see about downloading these but I just wanted to say that I go to college in the middle of downtown and there are an unfortunate number of people who do dress like that. There are days I wish I could get default replacements for the whole city - nothing against alternative styles just a little less flesh would be nice. Thanks again!
Not actually evil.

can you make non-defaults of these?

no I'm just kidding.

I was just seeing if you'd really come to mah house and eat my precious pasta.

I love these, thanks.
I hate skimpy clothing on most of my sims >.< unless thats the role they play, but even then...

Hey thanks so much, your downloads are always so great and I just love evrything you do... thanks so much. I am totally with you with the whole don't show to much skin thing. And your avitar...I live it. Where did you find him with him flipping the bird..Ha! Ha! It made me laugh so hard when I saw it. Did that actually air on the show? Anyway keep up the great work.

They mostly come at night, mostly.
#61 Old 10th Sep 2008 at 2:33 PM
Thank you so much for sharing these, HP. I showed a screenshot of some the new townies wearing these outfits to my husband, and he asked if they were prostitutes.
No, they just dress that way, lol.
Thanks to you, there will be less of that going on now.

Awesome, I was just thinking the other day that those outfits needed an undershirt or something, so thanks. ^_^ Now I can use the outfits.

The Teen halter tops have a little problem: The fat morph doesn't work properly.

Tsarina - WTH, I know I tested that. Damn random asplosion. It's past midnight now so I can't fix it right now but I'll smack it around till it works when I get up in the morning.

Soo looovely ... (even if I don't mind the uncovered belly, however this set covers and corrects more and more weird ea-maxis clothes *errors*, who's their stylist anyway?), thank you HP

It was quite embarrasing when my townies were prancing around in those flashy and sometimes trashy outfits when my dad was right behind me. My parents aren't very prudish but are very concerned about modest clothing and they probably thought I made my sims like that! It just was weird, ya know? I'm so glad you made these versions, hopefully you'll edit some more Maxis outfits! <3

Bree2kool8 - This set is mostly just texture edits, not mesh edits, so would have no conflict. The other set I've done, for the base game, will conflict with any other default replacement meshes that replace the same meshes. That's why I put the actual game names of everything and stated when I edited the mesh, texture, or both - I would hope anyone else default replacing a mesh would do the same... but none of the meshes I've edited had any pregnant morphs.
