German Police Uniforms – Recolours by Miki


This is an override file for police career and NPC uniforms. As long as you have these files in your downloads folder, there will be no police officers in blue uniforms anymore!

This is a mod for German players who always wanted to have "real" looking police officers in their game. I changed the Maxis uniforms (Thanks to Morague for extracting!) and created an override by using Vagrant's great DIY Law Career Overrides.


This file contains the following packages:


German_Police_Career_override.package

Your sims that choose a Law Enforcement Career will wear the German khaki-green uniform.


German_Police_NPC_override.package

If a burglar visits your house and the police is called, they too will wear the German uniform. I'm sorry that their car will be American, but I haven't figured out how to change that (if you know how to, please PN me ). Also, I have no influence on NPC characters otherwise, so if you have a black police officer arriving, I can't help it. (This is not a racist comment, but there are almost no black police officers in Germany – actually, I've never seen one in my life, even though I wouldn't care at all. )


Miki_PoliceF_YA_Adult_Elder_Germany.package
Miki_PoliceM_YA_Adult_Germany.package


I included these two uniforms (sorry for the long names :D), so if you downloaded my buyable set of German uniforms, you'll have those two files twice and should delete one of them.


I only tested with Original TS2 and Nightlife (University installed, though), but since this is a Maxis NPC mesh, there shouldn't be any problems with any expansion.


Have fun!
Miki

They are well done, but I think they look better with jacket. However, I don't believe you had enough experience and time for that, so still great work - although they look ugly without the jacket and hats in RL.

Given Germany's history, it shouldn't be surprising that there are only very few black people in Germany, and of those who live here, even fewer have done so for a significant amount of time (i.e. generations). Turkish police officers (or rather officers of Turkish ancestry) would be more realistic here - at least where I live.

But in the end, the fact that the ethnic mix of the generated NPC is geared towards reflecting American society more than that of another nation is surely no more disruptive to the immersion than the American-style school buses or post boxes.

@Fat_D: Yeah, I prefer them with jacket, too (especially the black leather ones), but I just needed those uniforms for my fotostory and thought to share them. Might look into that at some point, though.

@JustTheBast: I know why there are not many black people in Germany, but I was asked if I could change that too with the NPCs (well, no, and I don't want to). There's quite a lot of Turkish / East European police where I live.

danke, Mikikitty

ich habe übrigens gehört, dass die deutsche Polizei in Zukunft auch
blaue Uniformen bekommen soll. In Hessen fahren sie übrigens schon blaue
Polizeiwagen.

Great outfits, I don't understand why they make it blue in the origonal. Blue! Mabye it's just a sim thing...

Just wondering, could you make some English ones please, y'know, black with the badge. That would look awsome in my game! And if you had time, you could give yourself a challenge to make a hat too!

There is no spoon

They are blue because (just like the school buses) a lot of things in the game are based on the US.

I'm also from Germany and I like the German police uniforms and police cars a lot better than the US American ones. Thanks.

Tyana (Minnesota)is a true American, ignorant and pretentieux.I said that the best sites are few Germans and French, and work better than sites Us or UK.

@jlouis: As an American, I can say that I hate America. Because realistically America isn't that well... Open-minded. Filled to the brim with dumbasses. As a world traveler I know that in Europe a distance of 60km can make a huge difference in culture and geography. Luckily some countries are so small that it doesn't matter much anyways. The only problem with America is just how close-minded, and just plain unresourceful so many Americans are. Stop being so very ignorant yourself.

@Tyrana: Congratulations, you look stupid.

How did you do this? I am trying to do a UK police mod but I can't find the new texture.

Im trying to make a ww2 battle field but there no tanks if you could help me out that would be great.
P.S. and maybe a sherman tank to go with the panzer

If it's broken, don't try to fix it, you'll just make it worse! >=)
