This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

2008-04-22: Added "Townified" version. New Townies can be spawned dressed in those 3 outfits, like Maxis default clothes. Only choose ONE version, they share the same Group/Instance, so they will conflict with each other.


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


Remember those 3 hidden outfits from H&M Stuff Pack? EAxis included the same mesh and 3 new textures in BV, and hid them AGAIN. (What have they got against this mesh? Are they finally going to recycle those hidden textures in FreeTime?)


3 female adult everyday outfits. I built a new recolor package in BV BodyShop, and stripped the package to bare bone. This package contains no textures, no txmts, as they're already included in the BV game file. I only linked the package to ingame textures. You MUST have BV for these outfits to appear in your game.

They will appear alongside default BV clothings. I removed custom content star from thumbnail (as they're not really cc). They will bear BV icon instead.



Not sure if it's already done, but I don't remember seeing it here in MTS2.

I hate not having a complete clothing collection; it reminds me of when I had to go to the H&M site just to get that last blue outfit black boots piece. THANKS!

How did you remove the custom content star from the thumbnail?

In my experience, you don't have to change the version number of Property Set. Just make sure it's at least 2 or higher. Don't change it to 1 even if it's base game compatible clothing. If you change it to 1, YAs wouldn't be able to wear them.

Thank you so much Lord Darcy! Do you know if anyone has removed the CC star for the original H&M Stuff colors?
Also, I was just looking at this Free Time picture: http://www.thesims2.co.za/component...9999/catid,104/ It's the one with the Cooking Contest.
It almost looks like the same mesh, except the jacket is a little longer. Gee, this is would be, what? The third time Maxis/EA has incorporated it into the game?

Thanks again! :D

Argon did it long time ago. Here is my take, I only edited sortidx number of Argon's version a bit to my liking.
Unlike the custom version floating around the exchange, it's stripped to the bare bone just like mine (no redundant textures or txmts, just property sets), so it needs H&M stuff pack for outfits to appear ingame.
If you don't have H&M stuff pack but have BV, grab the custom version and follow the tutorial in my previous post.

You mean the female judge's outfit? I don't think it's the same mesh, the sleeves are too long, and the collar is shaped differently... A nice mesh though, would make a fine work/business outfit. The sky-blue work outfit for business career track is horrible.

I had a problem that I tracked down to this edit - when installed, it wiped out all the clothing from the University EP for me (on both computers I installed this on, one with CC one without any CC or modifications).

I've never experienced any problem with it. What EP/SPs do you have? Sometimes a mod which is working fine can cause problem under different combinations of EP/SPs.

All EPs, All SPs (this was happening before I installed FT, though) - I have one comp with my CC and everything on it, one computer that is an un-touched install with maxis-only content and I one by one transferred each thing over to the un-touched install to figure out what was causing the issue.

I'm new to this site, so I don't understand all the modding lingo yet. Is this 100% Maxis content, modified only so it will appear in the game, or have you added any colors or other original content of your own?

All actual 3D artwork (mesh and texture) is 100% Maxis content. I didn't add any new recolor or modify anything, all 3 colors are included in the game. All I made was technical stuff like 3D ID Referencing File or Property Set, so that these outfits appear in the clothing catalog.
