Default Replacement - Teen Style Stuff PJs Mapping Fix

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.
What this is for:

A couple people reported to me that sims wearing this PJs/sleepwear outfit from Teen Style stuff in combination with my skintone show my web address on their bellies. This is due to a weird choice of mapping by EAxis for this mesh and instead of putting the mapping for the belly in the right place (like, say, on the belly where it belongs) they put it on a usually-unused area. Because this area is usually unused, I (and other skintone creators) have used that area on our skintones to add information like name, web address, etc... the result is that any skintone thus tagged will show unwanted writing in that area... And any skintone -not- tagged in that way will generally look quite flat and unshaded as that area is usually a single colour bucket fill.

So this is a simple fix to the texture mapping for that mesh, moving that little strip of belly to where it should be. Fat morph is included and the mapping is correct on it as well.

I just love fixing Maxis mistakes.

This is a default replacement mesh, so it will automatically fix all of the Maxis colours of this mesh as well as any custom recolours of this mesh. It will -not- fix any new custom meshes based on this same mesh - it's up to the creators of those meshes to fix that themselves.

Thanks to:

The rest of the MTS2 staff, especially Delphy, for having such a spiffy place I could learn to create pretty things for pixel dollies - and fix silly flubs like this darn mesh.

I really like the stuff Maxis creates, but all the mistakes they make are just unacceptable.
I would not have known what I would do without the fixes you and other creators make for these stupid mistakes.

Thank you very much!

Thanks for this fix. I thought it was totally hilarious though when I took a close-up and looking back at the pic, noticed the web address. I wondered if you were playing a trick on us My simmies love your stuff but not enough to get web addresses tattooed on their stomachs *giggle*

Great photoshopping HP. No, I'm just kidding. I've seen this on S2C a while ago with a peggy skintone. Silly Maxis.

Thanks for fixing it! Although I never encountered this problem before.

Also will it work for the TSS conversions? or shall you or I inform the creator?

fway - I have no idea whether the creator of the TSS conversion of this outfit has fixed their mesh too - if not then they will need to fix it separately since this is a mesh edit - meshes based on this one will not automatically be fixed too.

If the web address wasn't on there before, I wouldn't be able to tell the diffrence between those. yes, I'm not that smart
I'm glad people fix maxis mistakes, but now I wish I had Teen Style stuff so this could be corrected.
But my WinRAR trial will most likely run out before i get Teen Style Stuff

I downloaded this and extracted it correctly, so how come it is not working?

holidaygirl1237 - If you did it correctly (and if you have Teen Style Stuff, of course) then it would be working. This definitely works if downloaded and extracted properly, so if it's not working for you, then you did it wrong.
