Glitched-Up H&M Jeans FIXED! And Untucked! For Both Genders! Triple Yay!

Oh Maxis. The jeans that came with H&M Stuff are hot. And those sleek waistlines make 'em look so untuckable! But alas, 3 out of the 5 new styles are so glitchy that even some Maxis tops don't work properly with them. Wanna know why? The meshes (3 of 'em) and textures (8 of 'em) are incorrectly labelled as full body outfits instead of pants.

So I fixed 'em.

What's What:

DEFAULT_REPLACEMENT_MOD_fanseelamb_hm-jeans-fix.rar - Default-replacement mod that fixes all the glitchy Maxis jeans. Put it in your Downloads or Saved Sims folder. Be careful not to delete these Maxis jeans from Body Shop or CAS! Doing so may corrupt your game files. It should be easy to avoid, they do have the H&M icon and no CC asterisk so you'll know they're Maxis pants.

fixed-hm-jeans_female_untucked.rar - "Untucked" recolours of the fixed female jeans (the ones with heels, style 3 in the pics.) The bottom of "untucked" shirts worn with these jeans will be distorted quite a bit, so I suggest you pair them with plain shirts or tops with abstract patterns. Avoid shirts with text down there. That's just how the mesh is, it's not something that's easily fixed.

fixed-hm-jeans_male_deboxed.rar - Recolours of the fixed male jeans (style 2 in pics) with the boxers removed. These didn't "untuck" well so I settled for just removing the boxers.

fixed-hm-jeans_male_untucked.rar - "Untucked" recolours of the fixed male jeans (style 1 in pics.)

non-borkinated-hm-jeans_female_untucked.rar - "Untucked" recolours of the other female H&M jeans (style 4 in pics.) These weren't broken in the first place so they're not fixed... just recoloured. Because I felt like it.

non-borkinated-hm-jeans_male_untucked.rar - "Untucked" recolours of the other male H&M jeans (style 5 in pics.) These weren't broken in the first place so they're not fixed... just recoloured. I know migamoo already "untucked" these and made some default replacements, but I felt like doing my own versions to keep 'em all together and stuffs.... so there you have it. Since these are *not* fixed, you can also use her deboxed default-replacements without conflicts.

Important Note:
Recolours of the broken Maxis pants will not work properly with this mod installed. Conversely, recolours of these fixed pants will not work properly without the mod installed. To fix recolours made without the mod installed, just follow this little tutorial.

Untucked Note:
The "untucked" pants will look real silly with standard length tops. You'll need some long skintight tops to pair them with. Here's a bunch for males and a bunch for females.

You rock! You'd think Maxis would have noticed that their own stuff was messed up. I had looked at that and shook my head, but YOU went and fixed them.

Oh, thank you thank you thank you! You would think in a stuff pack focused on the CLOTHES they wouldn't mess the CLOTHING up. But, no...

I agree with everyone else. You totally rock!

*mashes Thanks button until it breaks* You are the best and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Though my personal fix of only using those pants with "shirtless" tops for my men wasn't all that bad... >_>

O.o i love you...
i really don't like my ladies exposing all that skin. i figured maxis did it so everything would be a midriff bearing top, but not so? hallelujah! thanks so much for the fix!

Much love and Huggles from me. Maxis really are not a full driveway up to the house sometimes.

I loved those jeans when I first loaded H&M. Then I tried to put them on my sims..........

Thanks for fixing something that was far to obvious for EAxis to notice.

Wow. You mean, I can actually use the jeans that came in H&M?! That's crazy talk!

Seriously, thank you for doing this; every time I tried to use the male ones, I was reminded of Hank Azaria in "The Birdcage." Thus, only males sims that were being punished ever wore them....

#24 Old 16th Jan 2008 at 3:25 PM
I think it might be me but I am not noticing any difference. I don't really want the recolours or untucked. I just have the fix in my downloads folder. I am using BodyShop to view it but can't see any effect. They look the same with and without the there something I am doing wrong? and yes I do have H&M and all other expansion packs.

ZenFrog76, the fix won't be as noticeable with Maxis tops or short custom tops because the jeans are all low rise. But even with Maxis tops, if you look closely you should see that the bottom of tight shirts aren't completely cut off like before - there's usually a shadow or something to make it look not so... weird. Have you tried it with some of the tops I linked to? You can use those with the normal jeans too, they'll look like normal tucked-in non-midriff-bearing tops.

Thanks for all the great comments, everyone. Reading them amuses me so.
