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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've been wanting to do these for QUITE some time, ever since before I first opened Milkshape for the first time in fact. I've hated these silly jumpers being in Everyday and I hated them having flip-flops. NO MORE, SILLY JUMPERS, YOU WILL YIELD TO ME!

Ok, so thats a bit much, but anyways, I edited out the flip-flops and replaced them with decent sneakers, which I stole from another Maxis outfit, so don't worry, nothing looks 'out of place'. To change them I had to edit the mesh and the texture files, so you get a double-whammy package (I couldn't figure any reason you'd ever want just one or the other, they look ridiculous by themselves, so I stuffed them into one package).






These are DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS, meaning, when you place them in your downloads folder, they will act as Maxis clothing, completely replacing their counterparts. This includes sims currently wearing them. If you want to remove mine and return to the maxis versions, just delete my package from your downloads folder. Btw, if you want your clothing catalog images to reflect these changes, delete your thumbnails folder: C:\Documents and Settings\(yourname)\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Thumbnails. The game will generate new ones.

The other two files are catalog edit packages. They will move the jumpers to your Athleticwear bin. You can choose between the MOVED file (moves the jumpers to Athleticwear and removes them from Everyday) and the ADDED file (adds the jumpers to Athleticwear but also leaves them in Everyday). Its up to you which one you want. I personally HATE having 6 thousand maxis clothes in my everyday, especially when 2 thousand of them in my opinion aren't 'Everyday' type clothes anyways! (If that bugs you too, check out this Catalog Edit Mod of mine!)

Installation Instructions:
The MESHtexture package goes in your downloads folder like normal. The catalog edit packages DO NOT (well they can, but its a bad idea all around). Put the files in the following location instead of in your Downloads folder. C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Bon Voyage\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins (or whichever is your highest expansion pack folder).

You can put these files in your Downloads folder, but if you do, the delete button will be enabled in CAS and Body Shop. Do NOT delete them in CAS or Body Shop. Doing so may corrupt some of your game files. To remove the outfits from your Athleticwear bin, delete these package files from where you installed them to.


For those who like the idea, but are going to complain for me to make them as regular CC instead of defaults, that was my very first upload ever. There was no mesh editing, still looks decent, just not perfect, that's the price you pay for whining I guess. Get it here.

Polygon Counts:
Maxis Original: FaceCount-2322 VertexCount-1573
My Version FaceCount-2162 VertexCount-1540

My version is actually less stress on your videocard, which will make your game run faster! (though not noticeably)

Enjoy!
-Phaenoh

P.S. Make sure you get the Teen Version of this as well! (yes, they also have bad jumper/flip-flop outfits hanging out in everyday) I've got more default replacements, check them all out here !

I love reading comments, leave me a couple?

Stupid photoshop, this upload got rejected because of crunchy pictures, I retook my pictures and reuploaded them 4 times before I realized it wasn't the camera's fault, it was photoshop saving them as tiny files, for reasons I don't understand...

nice job phaenoh

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n2z-Q6x6eU and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.

Yay! You're back! And you did a mesh replacement which I love! Chocolate cakes for you :D

Erm... Is it enough to have your "AthleticClothingCatalogEdit-Moved.package" installed? I mean, I don't need one of these two as well, no?

debbycus, that package didn't touch these outfits, I was unable to do meshes then so I didn't want to move them with flipflops. They don't clash, but that package won't affect these clothes.

Petchy, I've still got plenty of stuff to fix! I tried to move those scarfs but for some reason they still showed up in everyday. I'll prolly take another look at it again though.

Okay then I presume the same goes for the teen outfits, right?
Thanks for replying and thanks again for the coolest outfits!

Right again on the teen outfits, and THANK YOU for leaving me a note! I get so bored when there is nothing new to read.

LOL You too? I seriously need to get a life and try to diminish this almost sickening Internet addiction

BTW, your real life sim objects are so cool ^_^ I wonder if you can make the plumbob... I'd frankly fly over to you just to buy that single piece of object

Nope, that store provides the items, I provide the graphics. Its kinda like saying I can make recolors but can't mesh. Oh well! I'll try to get more t-shirt designs up soon.

Glad you fixed your problem comedy.

Take notice people, follow instructions. The good majority of my downloads REQUIRE you to read instructions, please do.

Thank you for sharing this replacement. This is another case where I can't even begin to understand the Maxian fetish for sandals with EVERYTHING.

I'm afraid that I'm having problems with getting the files to work in the TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins\Moved folder I created. Most of your other downloads I have work fine in the folder, the exceptions being this and the similar teen one. I can get the mesh and textures to work just fine, but if I put the moved or added files in the Bins folder they won't move or add anything. They work if I leave them in the downloads folder, but then they're starred as custom content. I have all expansions and stuff packs, could there be one of the newer ones that changed something, or am I doing something wrong? :\

Edit: Duh... just realized they're supposed to go in the HIGHEST expansion folder. For some reason the other downloads worked fine in the original, though, so it took me a little longer than it probably should have to figure that one out. Sorry, I'll read more carefully next time!

This is awesome! I wish I'd found it earlier; my legacy sim fell in love with a dormie who was wearing the red jumper and it bothered me all through his college career. At least now I won't have to be bothered by the illogic of it should it come up again.

Brilliant. Now these (and the teen) outfits are usable.
