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 the adult version of these for QUITE some time. Once I got those done I was flipping through the teen clothing catalog and I spotted these, just sitting there, as if they were trying to mock me or something. Knowing that would never stand I grabbed my mouse and went to town on them. 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'. I also slightly changed the colors of each, that yellow was driving me bonkers. The color changes are subtle, so I hope nobody minds. 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).

I've also made up my standard catalog edit packages for you, you don't have to download the mesh/texture replacement package if you don't mind having your teens work out in flipflops! You can of course pick between my 'Added' and 'Moved' versions. More details below.

Because of the way the original UV Map was set up, to make my changes the UV Map also had to change, meaning ANY CC CLOTHES THAT USES THIS MESH is going to have their shoes messed up. Sorry, but that couldn't be helped. The original jumpers have the awful 'center shoe' position and my new version has the standard shoe position on the UV Map, hopefully this doesn't inconvenience anyone too terribly much. Also, any creators who use these jumpers as their base for new CC clothes, yes you can use my mesh, but tell users in your upload that they will need this mesh to have the shoes show up correctly (unless you want to do both kinds on the same texture, that would work too, though, its a bit more work on your part.)

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 file goes into your downloads folder like normal. The Added or Moved packages don't go there (well, technically they can, but its a bad idea). 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.

Polygon Counts:
Maxis Original: FaceCount-2186 VertexCount-1662
My Version: FaceCount-2030 VertexCount-1494

My version is actually less stressful on your videocard, meaning, your game will run faster! (though, not really noticeably)


P.S. Make sure you got the Adult Version as well! I've got more default replacements, check them all out here !

I love reading comments, leave me a couple?

do you have non-defaults of the sneaker version, too (as athletic wear)? I have a bad feeling some of the clothes i've downloaded uses the old mesh, and I don't want to mess them up
#3 Old 11th Nov 2007 at 2:16 AM
YAY! i was wondering when youd do more and here you are!
i missed your defaults! thanks!

(any word yet on those ugly nannies?!) :P

sorry simmer! nope, I mostly only work in defaults right now, I tend not to download much CC so I need my Maxis clothes to do double duty, you could download it and see if your CC clothes do indeed use the mesh, but otherwise, no, I'd suggest exporting and importing the maxis ones to use in athleticwear. Sorry!

sim~obsessor, I'm actually working on the NPCs right now, got the nannies spiffed up and the newspaper kid, that lime-yellow was AWFUL! Still working on some of the other ones, it will all get posted together, look for it soon!

Thats a good idea! I had planned on seeing if I could switch out the maid outfit for the BV housekeeper dress, but that only fixed things for people with BV. I'll see about that as an alternative. I've also changed the bus driver, the food delivery outfit and switched around the male maid and private school outfits, and other uglys that I've missed?

but could do one set...all the npc's you mentioned ther and then uplaod the default BV dress in its own thread in diffent color options so ppl with BV can get it? but thats a alot of hassle
...well...the male maid outfit is hoorid..all unbuttoned and pastel colors...not very say you got it... i cant think of any other NPC i dont like right now.. the mail ppl/nannies and slutty maid is it... if u have any ideas for others you go ahead and do it! it is your project of course. :P

What's wrong with the mail carrier? I wanted to do them too, but I couldn;t figure out what I didn't like and the colors seemed accurate, so I didn't know where to go from there. I was planning on leaving Mr.Maid as frilly as he was, there are even sequins on that shirt! Though, he has some alternative colors, like white, that don't get much use unless his character gets replaced alot (death, marriage).

You know Pheanoh I'm not a huge fan of CC especially skintones or eyeballs and even clothes with lots of mesh's and it's refreshing too use Maxis clothing the way your making them.I love all of your stuff..matter of fact i have all of your work in my game.Great job and keep it up.I'll be downloading more.

i have a idea on what you could do with the private school uniform default...
i was looking around today and saw this upload... and realized how nice a solid color dress with a over coat looks...
do u think you could do somthing like that just maxis-ey? i think it looks nice... rather than a skirt and sweater seperate...just a idea...:P

Perhaps, currently I had just planned to use the other private school outfits, like the red and the green for those who are sick of blue. Though I did get a request a long time ago for a black version. I'll see what happens, thanks for the suggestion!

And everybody else, I LOVE it when someone pipes up with an idea or a suggestion, when you get a whole bunch of ideas flowing you are bound to end up with something good. At my school we all critique each other's work, pointing out the good and the bad, so I can take criticism, it all helps make the final work that much better.

Thanks. I thought ea putting sandles with this outfit was sorta dumb looking. This looks much better. Thanks for sharing

Someone at maxis REALLY likes sandals.
OOOOH I love all of your defaults! I dont really think that you have to worry about not having anything to replace, because (trust me) if you upload something, SOMEONE is going to download it.

I note that everyone is talking about how you don't like custom content. Well, I do, but we have so much that my game runs too slow, so I am trying to get rid of it, and get down to just a few things. Problem is my sistert doesn't wnat to do this, because basically her Dora will wear anything (I'm talking this sim will wear clothes created to make your sim look like a centaur). Part of the reason I started downloading custom content is that I wanted more clothes for the smaller catagories (like athletics and swimwear) or I wanted clothes I'd actually wear, so with your awesome defaults I have that and can get rid of some of this stuff. If only I could convince my sister.
I cringed when my of my sim teens aged into this, so now I won't have to deal with that again.
#17 Old 23rd May 2008 at 4:43 PM
Phaenoh, I love the adult version of this. Is there any way you could add those keds to this outfit?

#18 Old 14th May 2010 at 6:34 AM
You are amazing. I love that you fixed the colors too. It never made sense to me that these had flip flops with them.

#19 Old 14th Apr 2011 at 11:38 PM
The only thing keeping me from downloading this is that the sneakers look really weird like they dont look like there shoes

-Though this be madness, yet there is method in it-

Thank you so much! Wonderful idea, in my new game I use only maxis-match content so it's very helpful for me :)

Thank-you! The flip flops on this outfit have always bothered me, and moving them to workout gear is genius.
