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.
Updates: There was a slight gap that occurred in a few odd angles. It has been fixed. Please redownload both mesh rars. I am starting to hate this mesh. - May 11, 2008
The fat morphs on both meshes didn't work properly when I first uploaded them! I didn't realize anything was wrong until someone pointed it out to me. I have since fixed the meshes and reuploaded them. Please redownload unless you like the 'insta-diet' the guys get from putting on their pjs. Sorries! - April 4, 2008

Similar to my recent uploads of Undies and Swimsuit Conversions for these ages, I present to you, PJs! My elders and teens needed better PJs and I was REALLY tired of giving them all the solid colored Classic PJs that was the ONLY thing they had.

Like my last post, these pjs are not your standard downloads. They draw their texture from the basegame adult drawstring pjs. Since they do not actually contain a copy of that texture, they have a much smaller file size, and if you happen to have a replacement for them, then they will draw that texture instead too. As much as I hated those Classic PJs, there were a few of the colors missing from each age. This kind of inconsistency bugs the heck out of me, so I've filled in the holes with ones that borrow the textures from the ages that had them. These also pull defaults, like mine. 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:
Elder Men: 5 Drawstring PJs (on a new elder body mesh!) that pull whatever default you have
Elder Ladies: 1 Plaid Classic PJs that pulls default
Adult Men: 1 Aqua Classic PJs that pulls default
Teen Boys: 8 Drawstring PJs (on a new teen body mesh!) that pull whatever default you have, 3 require University Expansion Pack, 1 Aqua Classic PJs that pulls default
Teen Girls: 3 Classic PJs, Plaid, Purple, and Gray that pull defaults

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 Sleepwear bin, delete the package file from where you installed them.


P.S. Leave me a note? I like reading. What other conversions should I do? I'm running out of ideas. BTW, I'm specifically looking for clothes to give to elders and males, they don't have nearly enough clothes.

Polygon Counts:
Both Elder and Teen meshes: Facecount-1916 VertexCount-1306

Grandpa gets some clothes! Thank you for making these. I completely understand the compelling need to make stuff consistent, I feel the same way.

Since you asked, how about Bon Voyage Twikki and Asian outfits for elders? Elder natives look so silly and out of place in regular clothes. Has anyone already done that? I don't think I've seen it. The Twikki elder outfits could use similar textures and leafy greens, but be more modest than the adult versions, maybe?

Your elder body looks very good. The chosen conversion is one of my favourite pjs.
It is very good that more people is busy making conversions and replacements.
I've been waiting for the possibility of making textures that can be pulled by different meshes, as it was in the base game. This would make it easier and would reduce the downloads folder. It would be necessary to have only one clothes style and respective meshes for all ages. So every texture would be used to wrap all the meshes.
Thanks for your creation.

Sweet! I wanted the Uni PJ's for teens but could never figure out how to do it myself (that, and I can only play the Sims 2 every other weekend). Thanks for making these!

Hmm, BV clothing I'm not that crazy about. I'm still thinking about making myself hiders for some of those clothes. Also not crazy about the glamour stuff pack pjs. I'm looking for more basegame staples, not specific outfits. Grampa had limited choices in swimsuits, so I filled that gap, then saw another in undies, then pjs. What else is desperately lacking?

Thanks for commenting everyone!

Yay! Thanks so much, have been getting annoyed for the past week about the lack of decent PJ's as I have a lot of teen and elder men in my game at the moment. Love 'em!

Hey thanks!

I would like to see the glamour pjs too and also, if its possible, the new adult male clothes from FT (those who looks english and oldfashined) for elders, because maxis forgot to add a matching outfit in this group of age.

I followed your instructions and when I went to make a teen Sim in CAS, I went to the pajamas tab and where the Uni pajamas should have been were, instead, the usual black, normal pajamas that came with the base game. Help?

I have Uni, NL, Pets and TSS. I put the files in the Pets folder, as the explanation told me.

Did you download the Teen Mesh that went with it? I only packaged that with the BaseGame recolors.

#14 Old 30th Mar 2008 at 6:41 PM
Yeah, I downloaded it. I downloaded both the Teen-DrawstringPJs-TexturesMesh.rar and the Teen-DrawstringPJs-UNITextures.rar and installed them as you explained. Did I need the MissingClassicPJs.rar too?

No, you don't need MissingClassicPJs. You downloaded both the basegame ones and the Uni ones, and the uni ones aren't working. Are the basegame ones working as they should?

#16 Old 30th Mar 2008 at 8:32 PM
No, they're not working either. For all of the converted outfits, I see the standard Maxis black pajamas for teen-adult male. The thumbnails look the same as the outfit, after I click it.

Try putting the files in your downloads folder instead. They'll have the CC star but if they show up properly that will tell us something.

Edit: Just thought of something. Put it in the TSS folder instead. The higher files might be overwriting mine.

what? I thought I had the fat morph working... I'll take a look at it. If Grandma found out it was that easy for Grandpa to loose weight she'd throw a fit!

I'm glad you fixed the fat morphs! I just tried these out today after having downloaded them when you first posted them, and I was disappointed to see the fat morph didn't work. Your work has so far been very thorough, and it didn't seem like you to have a non-working fat morph. I'm glad it was just a mixup! I've since re-downloaded, and I'm very glad to have the extra pajama options.

This was a great idea. So small and so useful! One of the very few things I'll put permanently in my game. Thank you!

Having decent textures on the original meshes actually makes some of the clothing not so bad. I have found it frustrating to scroll past pages of fug, only to realize that my sims have nothing to wear! Seems like you were able to scrub and scour the Maxis textures into pretty? I thought that was impossible. With your default replacements, I find I am using these clothes, the pre-defugged versions never got used.

My request at the moment is maybe boxers for the guys? All ages, I have the set for adult. Kids, elders and teens need good nickers too. Also, more jammies for the toddlers, they never have enough.

Great stuff, I've been waiting for some time for a mesh like this for elder males. So thank you very much.

However, the elder male mesh has a gap between the top and the trousers. In most positions this doesn't look that bad, but when the sim is leaning forward there is a big gaping hole in the back. If something could be done to fix this it would be great. This is such a brilliant mesh with many potential uses besides pyjamas (case point, I'm working on sportswear using it), that it would be superb to have a gap-less version.
