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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
First of all, a big thanks to boblishman for telling me how to make accessories non-deforming.

This is an idea I've had for a while, but I had to wait for the proper tools, and I was busy with other stuff, but here it is.

This is a trenchcoat as an accessory, so you can wear it with whatever outfit you want. However, some outfits will poke out through the coat. But a lot of the outfits will work.

The mesh is just the Maxis trenchcoat, modified so it can be worn by itself. The texture is Maxis's also, shrunk a little because I didn't see the need of having the texture map that big. It comes in brown, black, and white, and is available for females. Yeah, the whole point of this project was to make me a trenchcoated-Rogue, although Syn figured it out on his own using PAF's mesh. It's for teen-elder, male and female, and can be worn with other accessories. You need the mesh and at least one color to use the trenchcoat in your game.

Redistribution Policy: Recolor at will, but do not redistribute the mesh without permission. All recolors should link back to this post. Do not upload to any paysites, and do not upload to the Exchange. I know they're pretty much nonexistant, but feel free to use any color I include with my meshes in your own creations, as long as credit is given and a link to the mesh is provided. All content is by Maxis or me.

Holy guacamole and we've got chips!!

This is AMAZING. I've wanted to give a certain favoured Sim of mine a trenchcoat to up her coolness. And now she can have that trenchcoat in THREE COLOURS. Brilliant.

Fantastic work! I've got a question, though. In the description, you say it's available for females, but in the picture I see both males and females wearing it. Is it unisex, or did you say that it's for females because the Maxis trenchcoats normally aren't available for them? Pardon my confusion.

For a species that claims to be intellectually superior to all other life forms, humans do some stupid things.

I said it was available for female especiallly because it's not regularly, but I also say it's available for male and females when I list the ages.

Your trenchcoat rocks hard, heavy and all night long! A definate keeper, I try to keep my downloads folder small since I started making stuff and have to start and stop the game a lot... but this is going in there. Thanks for your hard work.

You ROCK! You so totally rock! You have my eternal gratitude, which isn't worth anything but comes with a certificate suitable for framing.

Just to be a pain in the ass, I'll ask when there'll be a version of this for the athlete/bodybuilder.

Now I will run away and hide.

I agree with the others, this really is a breakthrough. Coats and such really should be added as accessories. Thanks for your hard work Zoi!!
