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

I really don't like the shape of the elder female pajamasclassic that came with the basegame, it looks as if she is fat and has O-shaped legs, so I made a new mesh with a better but still elderly shape and used the old shape as the fatmorph. Take a look at that in Bodyshop or CAS and have a laugh. I uplifted the breasts only a little bit as in pajamas I can't say that she is wearing a very good bra. Mesh-Coc-FEpajamasclassicNoO comes with 3x EAmaxis textures from EP University and an UV map.



I also made a Default replacement mesh with exactly the same shape.
What this one does, is replacing only the shape of the basegame mesh "efbodypajamasclassic" with my new shape and thus all the textures and recolors you have for and from that mesh. If you take it out of your game all clothing will be back in the old fat O-shaped legs shape = Mesh-Coco-FEpajamasclassicNoO-DR . If you only want the Default Replacement mesh you only need FEpajamasclassicNoO-Default-Replacement.rar.



To recap Mesh-Coc-FEpajamasclassicNoO is a new standalone mesh and recolors you make for it will only fit this mesh and nothing else, the old gamemesh is still there untouched and ugly. Put the mesh and recolors in your Downloads folder as usual.

Mesh-Coc-FEpajamasclassicNoO-DR is the Default Replacement mesh that replaces the maxismesh and will alter the shape of all ingame textures and recolors made for the Maxis mesh, and if you make a new clothingtexture for the pajamas when the DR mesh is in your game you actually make a texture for the Maxis basegamemesh, you can check that by removing the DR mesh from your game and you will find the recolor you just made on the old pajamasmesh. I made a separate testtexture to check that, and you can use that too if you want. I placed my DR mesh in my Downloadfolder as usual and the Pj's couldn't be deleted in CAS or in Bodyshop.
There are no textures included with this mesh, so if you use a program like the Wardrobe Wrangler it may be tagged as an orphan mesh.
All custom made recolors/textures will offcourse have the Custom Content asterix as usual and can be deleted as is normal.

Personally I'm only using the DR mesh as I never want to see the old shape of this pajamas again, but made a seperate mesh for the people that are afraid to use Default Replacement meshes or already have an other DR for this mesh. If you want you can even use them both at the same time in your game.

To use the new mesh Mesh-Coc-FEpajamasclassicNoO and Mesh-Coc-FEpajamasclassicNoO-DR you don't need any expansion or stuffpack.

As I was busy with the Sleepwear for Elder Ladies I thought you maybe also could use the Default Replacement pack I've made, to make the textures for the Glamourpack mesh "afbodypajamaslong" available for Elders= Coc-DR-afbodypajamaslong-Glamour-+FE.
I know that there is a Default Replacement pack that makes a lot off clothing from the Glamourpack available for Elder men and women by Simsbaby here:http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=190068 for women and here: http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=186527 for men, but I was loosing track of what clothing I had a DR for and what not, so I sometimes make them a separate DR so that by reading the name I can see wich is wich, and what it does. If you are like me and you don't (always) want elders to have exactly the same textures as the adult, you can place the DR in your downloadsfolder, make the new Elder texture and when you're done remove the DR from your downloadsfolder. That way you avoid any danger of accidential removing/messing up gamefiles and you don't have to use Simpe.
If you want the ingame Glamourpack textures always available for your Elders, put Coc-DR-afbodypajamaslong-Glamour-+FE in a save place the way
like Phaenoh advised :
Put Default Replacement files directly in (or make a subfolder) in this location: C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\whichever is your highest expansion pack\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins, and the ingame textures won't have an custom content asterix and you can't accidently mess up your gamefiles by deleting them.
Now these Glamour textures won't have an custom content asterix but a normal Glamour pack star, but they can be deleted in Bodyshop and Create-A-Sim so take care with this.

Again for the people that don't want Default Replacements or are afraid to use SimPE I've made a few simple recolors for this pajamas that already include the Elder Female. They are not exactly as the gametextures, but you can easy make that ones yourselve in Bodyshop. If you start out with one of these recolors, your new texture will be available for Elders too even after you removed my textures and/or the DR from the game.

For this Default Replacement Pack Coc-DR-afbodypajamaslong-Glamour-+FE and the recolors you will need the Glamour Stuff pack to work.

Well that was a lot of writing, hope you can use it and it is all understandeble and clear enough. Oh and offcourse all textures are from EAmaxis and categorized as Sleepwear.

I like to thank the makers of the programs, tools and tutorials used to make this, especially Morague and Phaenoh for the info and tutorials about Default Replacement packs.

Super nifty, and I really want to download the DR mesh and all recolors for it, but I got really lost in the text. Please tell me which files are just recolors for the DR mesh and wich file is the DR mesh. I see only one mesh file, and it doesn't say DR. Thanks!

I'm sorry you don't know wich one to download. If you only want the Default Replacement mesh for the Elder Classic PJ you only need FEpajamasclassic-NoO-Default-Replacement.rar, in that rar.file you will find MESH-Coc-FEpajamasclassic-NoO-DR. If you want you can download testTexture For FEpjClassicNoO-DR.rar wich contains the recolor/texture I made for the maxismesh to check if my DRmesh is changing excisting custom recolors/textures of the EAmaxismesh.
The Uni textures are made on the not DR mesh, the "normal" standalone mesh.
I'll see if I can adjust the text a little, it took me a long time to write this text and English is not my motherlanguage or native language however you say that. I'll better leave this kind of changes to Phaenoh, she is far more better in this kind of stuff.
