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.
I really like these trackpants that came with Apartment Life. The body paint, not so much. It's funny and all, but none of my sims are fanatical sports freaks. They just wanna work out in some nice comfy trackpants! And no shirt. And now they can! Yays!

- The file labeled "DEFAULT REPLACEMENT" is, as you might've guessed, a default-replacement version.

- The file labeled "RECATEGORIZER" moves the defaults from the Everyday category to the Athletic category. You can use that with the painty Maxis outfits too if you want.

- The file with no BIG BOLD CAPS is a normal custom non-default recolour, Athletic only.

Adult/YA - Full Body - Maxis Mesh (ie. no mesh needed) - Apartment Life Required

Yay, I'm so glad you did this. I saw those in CAS and was like, "lulwut?"

Yay! Is this a default replacement as I hate hate hate the ones with the paint; if not, will you be releasing one?

So wait, is this a replacement?

No, this is not a replacement. I'm currently working on one and will add it to this thread shortly.

I personally thought that the way it was was really cool and artistic and creative as well, but thank you for making these optional so I can keep both.
#12 Old 29th Aug 2008 at 6:01 AM
Awesome thanks I too don't really like the paints

I can't tell you how amazing this is. When I saw the bodypaints I was, like, Wut? Does someone NORMAL actually use..?

You know, I could buy the body paint if it weren't for that perfectly-rendered soccer ball in the middle.

I was so hoping someone would do this! And thanks for making a default replacement version! And for making it athletic wear!

Hey. Great conversion.

The only thing I was wondering was...

If you could make the trackpants appear in the trousers (pants) category of everyday? It just seems right for them to be there.

Not possible, Sim-Wolf. These are full-body outfits. Putting them in the pants category would require remaking the mesh as bottoms. I have no plans to do that at this time.

These add add a nice variation to the game. I never noticed before checking these in-game, but these are also the same pants as the FT tracksuits!
