I finally figured out how to hide accessories like glasses.

This mod will hide the strange "glasses" from CAS and "change appearance". It does not work with Bodyshop for some reason.

You must have the expansion packs mentioned in the filenames to use them.

* — hides the Rave/"Riddick" glasses that came with Nightlife. These are the coloured goggles worn above the head.

* — hides the aviator goggles that came with Open for Business.

* — hides the snorkels that came with Family Fun Stuff.

Optionally, you can also hide all glasses from the game:
* — hides all glasses which are in the base game. Combined with the mods above, you won't have any glasses (except custom ones) left.

I will give you my firstborn for this mod ;D

Thank you Jordi. Those kind of add-ons should have been hidden from start, for only the people specially interested had the pleasure to unlock them.

This was the best idea! Thank you so much. I hated scrolling through those awful glasses.

If townies (or Body Shop made sims) are already made with one of these will they show up ok?

Simjunkie: yes they will appear normally if you already have them, or use the debugging cheats (or bodyshop) to give them to CAS Sims. They will not be available for new townies and CAS though, and not appear in the mirror.

I can't thank you enough for this and your other similar mods - no more of those hideous and bizarre Maxis creations - yaaay!!!

I want something that hides all the Maxis sims in the bodyshop bin, so only the downloaded and self created sims is showing. Does anyone know if there is such a hack/mod for download somewhere? If so, please PM me!

First, thank you for all of your hiders, they are really neat and very useful! Then I have a question: Can you possibly hide all the glasses from basegame that have weird colors like green? So that there are only sunshade and normal versions of them, no green, red or anything like that. Is that possible?
