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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Similar to my recent upload of Swimsuit Conversions for these ages, I present to you, Briefs! My elders, teens, and kids needed more undies and I was REALLY tired of looking at the t-shirt boxer combo that was the ONLY thing they had. After I updated my Braver Briefs I just had to convert them for the other ages.

Like my last post, these briefs are not your standard downloads. They draw their texture from the basegame adult briefs. Since they do not actually contain a copy of that texture, if you happen to have a replacement for them, like mine, then they will draw that texture instead too. The elders and teens received all seven of the briefs this way. The kids have a different UV Map so it isn't possible to simply reference the texture. For this reason I've created a (mostly) normal CC version for the kids. The kid's packages just have the custom content star removed. I'm providing you with two choices for the kid's briefs. You can pick the ones that match my default replacements (btw I've edited them, so you might want to go download those again so they match the kids version), or you can pick the one that match the Maxis ones. Actually you can have both if you really want. If you want standard CC versions of any of these, check out this thread of mine.

Just to recap, since I didn't take pictures of everything. What you get:
Elders: 7 briefs (on the elder body) that pull whatever default you have
Teens: 7 briefs that pull whatever default you have
Kids: 7 briefs that match my defaults, 7 briefs that match the Maxis versions



Install instructions: Place them directly, or make a subfolder, in the following location and put the files there instead of in your Downloads folder. C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 FreeTime\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 Undies bin, delete the package file from where you installed them.

Enjoy!

P.S. Little boys look so cute in whitie-tighties! And I think the teen boys look kinda hott in them too, but maybe I'm just partial to briefs cuz my boyfriend wears them. Leave me a note?

Uhm, about using the nude mesh for underwear... Some of us, have, um, default replacements of that mesh, causing some rather odd protuberances in a certain department...
A custom mesh might be called for.

thank you for the boys, teen and elder switch. i have NEVER seen a swedish child walk around with a t-shirt as underwear, very odd in my opinion.really, really old men might wear that net-thingy with their underware but hey
my younger male sims are logically odd foreigners all of them lol, but now they can be "normal".

Well, the boys underwear was based off the cunaked, I would hope your little girls didn't get a bulge as well and I imagine at their age it for the boys would be a little out of place to begin with. If your default meshes are just a bit of a bulge (as I've seen for underwear) this would fit right it, if it has extra dangly bits, I see your problem. As the majority of us either play with mostly 'Barbie' versions or have CrammyBoy's 'addon' which wouldn't cause an issue here, I'm going to side with the majority and not make a custom mesh out of the normal naked mesh. If you'd still like them in your game, Tig has some great Meshing Tutorials that I reference everytime I make anything with a new mesh that explain how to link textures to different meshes. Sorry gwillewyn, thats the best I can do for now.

Thanks for these new undies! I usually let my elders wear boxers, since I'm pretty sure that's what my the elder males in my family wore when I was a kid.

My kids and teens will love the new briefs as well. I'm sure they'll enjoy the pillow fights and cops 'n' robbers without having to worry about ripping the seams in pj's or painful rubs boxers cause.

I love that you work with all ages and genders! There is so much content just for adult or teen females, all of my other Sims are very jealous!

Thanks for making male underwear that looks like real underwear. I always thought the maxis version looked like diapers. This is great.

Does anyone know if these conversions are compatible with AL?

Yes they will work with AL.
I had them just got them again. Finally. They are wonderful.
I really dislike boxers, even though some of my sims wear them, if the character fits.

Once again, I've reinstalled Sims, but something unusual happened: my carefully hoarded zips and rars have wandered off. Attempts to play with plain Maxis content have been frustrating, as I'd forgotten how dismal it can be. Thank you so much for improving the looks of my game.

What Maxis meshes are the elder and teen briefs using?

It's been a while so I forget offhand, but if either age had those speedo swimsuits by default, that was the mesh used, and if not, then I used the nude mesh.
