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.

Info Furcoats Part 3- The Long Furcoats.

For my Medieval and Victorian neighborhoods I again used the Glamour mesh "afbodycoatfurtrim" and made 2 Long versions of it using parts from other EA/Maxis meshes. Usually all new clothingmeshes can be used even if you have only the basegame.

All meshes have EA/Maxis textures and are categorized as Everyday and Outerwear if you have the Seasons expansion.
The textures are also available for Young Adults (if you have University expansion) and (except the purple fur) Elders as I think that, in coats, the difference in bodyshape is to small to make a separate mesh for Elder Ladies.
All meshes come with an UVmap for recolorists and should your simmies enjoy too many good meals and become fat, these meshes have a nice fatmorph.

This is the third and last part of my exploration of the furtrimcoats, I had a hard time to make a nice working UVmap on long skirt meshes and had to make too many versions and start over again and again and deleted several meshes that just didn't behave properly.
These 2 meshes only have the usual feet poking through the under edge of the skirt and strange hip dislocating when stepping aside, wich is barely noticed in normal play. No Teen versions this time and for elders I recommend to use only plain textures as the furcoattextures stretch ugly on their upperlegs. Should you ever want more versions, please try to make them yourself with the tutorials from Tiggerypum and Hysterical Paroxysm you can find in the Create section, as I am finished with this mesh.


1. Mesh-Coc-FAsmallfurcoatLong Facecount=2246 Vertexcount=1539
3 textures
This mesh was made as a coat for the Regency period.




2. Mesh-Coc-FAwidefurcoatLong Facecount=2318 Vertexcount=1617
2 textures
Exactly as the Glamourmesh with the big sleeves and collar, but this time without the belt and a wider skirt. The fur on the edge is fake. This mesh actually looks as if they are wearing those wide skirted dresses underneath. I've made this mesh so Billysims139 can have her coat for Eowyn.
Thank you Billysims139 for your Objectrecolors!!




With a little adjustment, you can use all the textures/recolors I and EAmaxis have made for both these meshes and for the other Glamourmeshversions part 1 and 2, find the links in my profile. You have my permission to use mine in anyway you want but for the recolors others have made, you need to ask and/or check their own textures policy.

Non of these meshes would exist without the nice people here on MTS2 who gave us excellent free tools and tutorials, thank you Delphy and team, Quaxi and team for Simpe, Wes_h for the UniMesh 4.09, Demon432 for his Milkshapeplugins and Tiggerypum, Hysterical Paroxysm, Faylen and Dr Pixel for the tutorials and support.

Do with my meshes and textures whatever you want, just keep my work free. It will make me happy if you just use them and have fun with them.

Let me know if you use any of my recolors in a story, video, etc. I'd like to see it!

I LOVE these coats, but when I put them in my game (I have Glamour Life installed) the bottoms of the coats have the jagged look like the fur coats in Glamour Life. When I uninstall Glamour Life, the long fur coats look the way they should. I'm afraid the Glamour Life mesh/ fur coats overwrite the mesh you have here. Is there some way to fix that? Is there something I can do to have these really awesome long fur coats look the way they should and still have Glamour Life installed in my game?

The coats show up normal for me. Do you have some kind of mod/hack in your game that move clothing to the outerwear bin?
Or did you made the coats Outerwear only using Wardrobe Wrangler or Simpe?
I attached a version of the files that are outerwear only, could you test if the coats show up normal for you now?

edit 25-3 In another thread of mine Tymaporer had the same problem, she resolved it by adjusting the graphic detail setting to high, maybe you can try that too?

Hi Cocomama! I don't have any mods in my game that deal with clothing. I have some global mods and stuff, but nothing that would change the way the sims wear their clothes. I haven't made any clothing, I've tried with the Sims 2 Body Shop, but I don't know how. I saw that I put the coats into my game, and they worked fine. Then I got the Sims 2 Glamour Life and suddenly the coats didn't look the same. They look like the Glamour Life coats, all jagged at the bottom. Your coats look way better than those. I will put the files that you listed as outerwear only in my game (The site is down right now) and let you know if it worked or not. Thanks ALOT for responding! I appreciate it!

I did put the files for the Outerwear only in my game, but the bottoms ended up looking like the Glamour Life fur coats too! Ah well!
