2008-08-31: If you have either AL or M&G, don't download this fix.
Instead, get Stuff Pack Objects Fix Collection for Apartment Life.

2008-06-25: Updated to v1.0a. H&M clothing booth is now eligible for teens to Woohoo in, in case you're using other mods that enable Teen Woohoo.
This fix alone does NOT enable Teen Woohoo in H&M clothing booth!


***************


Bon Voyage added new dresser-like interactions (Change/Plan Outfits) to the two clothing booths from the base game. (This function should have been included in the base game, I have no idea why it took 6 EPs. We already had it in TS1 since Hot Date, for God's sake.) Sims can now plan and change outfits in community lots, and come back home dressed in newly picked clothes.

However, the H&M clothing booth doesn't have this new function, as stuff packs are often based on the older EP engines. New interactions added by later EPs are often unavailable for SP objects by default.

This fix will enable Change/Plan Outfits function for H&M clothing booth in BV or FT.

In addition to H&M stuff pack, you must have BV or at least one EP newer than BV, otherwise this fix will be of no use. It doesn't enable new functions in EPs prior to BV.

This fix is still needed in FreeTime. Unlike other Stuff Pack objects, EAxis didn't update it in FreeTime or its subsequent patches.


Installation:

Place in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder.
(Or in a subfolder of Downloads folder.)


Changelog:

v1.0: Initial release.
v1.0a: H&M clothing booth is now eligible for teens to Woohoo in, in case you're using other mods that enable Teen Woohoo. (2008/06/25)

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you so much for making this! I kept clicking on the H&M Booths and no options would appear. I thought I was doing something wrong. (So big Thanks again.)

The odd thing is, I put both the H&M booths and the H&M clothing racks on a vacation neighborhood lot, and my Sims did not have the option to buy anything, just Try On. Is there somthing wrong with the H&M racks too? Or is it just me that has this glitch?

Just wondering. Thanks again! *Downloads*

Yes, you can safely put it in the download folder. Unlike Teen computer fix, this fix doesn't contain Object Data entry, so it won't generate asterisk in thumbnail pic.

Is there any chance you could have a look at updating the University lockers as well? I noticed the other day while playing that the options are missing from them too.

Uni didn't add any new clothing booth. If you mean Uni dresser, Sims can't use dressers in the community lot, unless they are on their owned business. It's normal game behaviour.

I know it's 5 month old question, but only recently did I encounter this problem myself. Did you happen to place H&M clothing racks in hotel lots? I didn't know that Sims can't buy clothes in hotel lots, H&M clothing rack or not. Sims can buy clothes in Vacation community lots, and they can buy other goods like jewelry or souvenir in hotels too. It makes no sense not to be able to buy clothes in hotels, when hotel lots are perfectly capable of spawning cashier NPCs.

Will it cause any problems if we don`t? I have Apartment Life, but don`t have it installed yet. If I install this, will it cause problems when I install AL or the AL version of this mod?

This fix will not cause any problem in AL even if you leave it in your DL folder, but it will cease to work in AL, M&G or the newest version of Store Edition. EAxian fix included in Overrides.package will supersede this fix in your DL folder.

AL finally "updated" BV clothing booth to extend this BV feature, but as usual EAxis did a half-assed job on it, excluding Teen and Elder age group.

There is no "AL version" of this mod, because it is now part of my SP Objects Fix Collection for AL.
