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.

A nifty alternative to Seasons' coat rack!
by MaryLou & Numenor

NOTE: If you don't have Seasons, or you are looking for extended dresser functions, you might be interested in the hacked version of this object: the "Shop-at-home" Coat Hook (you can have BOTH in your game, if you like).

The "Any-Wear" Coat Hook is intended as an alternative to the Coat Rack that comes with Seasons.

You will find the "Any-Wear" Coat Hook in the Buy Mode catalog, subsection Misc/Dressers. Once placed in your lot, you can click on it and thet the following options:
  • Change to Outerwear
  • Remove Outerwear
Both menu options work exactly the same as with the standard Coat Rack from Seasons.

The Coat Hook requires Seasons. To install it, extract the package from the attached rar and put it in the Downloads folder (or use the Q-Xpress). To uninstall, just remove the package from the Downloads.
This Coat Hook is compatible, and can coexist with the "Shop-at-home" Coat Hook.

The Coat Hook is fully recolourable; you can recolour separately the clothings and the wood panel, but we suggest to recolour both at the same time, because both parts share the same textures.

Please DO NOT CLONE and DO NOT REPOST ANYWHERE. Recolours are fully allowed, but don't include the mesh in your packages: provide a link to this thread, instead.
You can include these items in your lots and post the lots on free sites (NO EXCHANGE!!!), but you must credit MaryLou & Numenor and provide a link to this very thread (not just to MTS2).

Is this not compatible with Bon Voyage? Since installing BV, it causes my game to crash whenever I use it to buy clothing. It doesn't crash everytime and it doesn't always do it right off, but it still crashes a lot.

Do we need this to download the hacked coat rack?

Absolutely not. This object, and the hacked one are completely separated and autonomous. You can have both, or just one, if you like.

If you need to contact us, PM directly to "Numenor" or "MaryLou".

I only know that the same functions can be obtained if you activate the testingCheats, then go to a community lot, keep pressed the SHIFT key on the keyboard and click on a clothing rack. If you have a goth/fairytale replacement for the community clothing racks, you can use them, the way I explained above.
(Edited because the instructions applied to the hacked coat hook, NOT the "Any-Wear" one...)

Or you could create a recolour for this coat hook, making the coats transparent and the support coloured according to your theme. Or you could keep the existing coats, that are quite "anonymous" and could easily look (with a proper recolour) like elven capes or vampyre mantles.
