This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
It's here! A gakuran is a japanese male school uniform (as seen in many anime)/chinese style suit (called zhongshan zhuang).

First of all, thanks so much to xxbethany275xx for helping me skin this mesh. Also thanks to the folks at MTS2 for answering all of my meshing related questions.

After a couple of unsuccessful requests, I decided to give it a try. Since Maxis nor anyone else had created a mesh suitable for this item, I had to make a new one. It's based on the Super Chef mesh with some slight alterations and arms taken from another suit mesh. Nothing too significant.

I have the Nightlife expansion but should be compatible for all versions. For YA and Adult males under everyday and formal.

-Don't distribute on paysites
-Recolors are always welcome.
-Please give feedback. I tested this somewhat but not thoroughly. Plus, I'm just a noob at this! I would appreciate any help

And enjoy!

YESSSSSSSSSSSS! You have no idea how long I have been longing for this! Awesome work! And I agree, this for teens would be awesome!

The intent is more dangerous then the action.

yeah i know the problem you're talking about. Does it also occur ingame or just in bodyshop? I tried to rebuild the mesh from scratch but the problem persisted.
