This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text 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.


I quite enjoy playing with my ruffled separates in the game. They're pretty versatile, and practical for little girls, too. So I thought I'd make some new colours.

There are six new colour groups. The files include the recolours only, so YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THE MESHES... or only the halter tops will work. You can find the meshes for the chiffon top and ruffled crops here, and the mesh for the ruffled skirt here.



The zip files are separated by colour. Within the zip files, the halter tops are pretty easy to pick out. The other files are as follows:

chFrufflecr = ruffled cropped pants
chFrufflesh = ruffled chiffon tank top
chFrufflesk = ruffled skirt

Nifty as usual. I needed some brown, and here it is!

However, could you pretty please get rid of the random letters and numbers at the start of the filenames? They're much easier to sort and organize when they can be listed alphabetically. If you're worried about unique file names, just put fp7 MTS2 CURRENT DATE at the end. Thanks! Don't have to do it for these, but for future work, it'd be great.

Hrm, this isn't showing up yet in the top/bottom filter for kids clothes... Did you remember to tick the "top" and "bottom" check boxes? Or is it something to do with the filter lagging?

I love your ruffled skirts so much, so I was very excited to see these new recolors. :D

Thanks!

Those random letters and numbers aren't my doing. Body Shop sticks them in there. I'm afraid to remove them for fear the files won't work anymore.

Doesn't your Body Shop add all those letters and junk?

Yes, I checked the boxes. I don't think you can continue with the upload if you don't check something in each category. I don't know why it didn't show up.

I fixed it, so they should show up as "tops" and "bottoms" now.

The "top" and "bottom" tags do show for me now, must have been just lag?

--------------------------------------------------

You can get rid of the random letters, no worries. I always do it, right after I import them into the game and make sure they look okay in game. The game doesn't really care what you call the file, so long as the filename is unique.

The other reason BodyShop sticks random junk in the name is so if two people name their work "cuWhiteTee", the file names are different. But if I call mine

cuWhiteTee_CatOfEvilGenius_MTS2_080831.package (today's date at the end)

and you call yours

cuWhiteTee_fakepeeps7_MTS2_080901.package (say you make it tomorrow)

... then it doesn't matter that we both used "cuWhiteTee" in BodyShop. Also, if I make another white tee tomorrow, and name it

cuWhiteTee_CatOfEvilGenius_MTS2_080901.package

... that's still okay. Different from my first white tee filename because of the date. Different from your 9/1 file because it cays Cat not fp7.

You can even rename existing custom content files that game has been using. Probably a good idea to delete "groups.cache" after, but I usually don't and it still works.

The only time names really matter is if you need some file to load AFTER some other file loads. In that case, make sure the file that must load later comes alphabetically after the file that must load earlier. For clothes though, that doesn't matter.

PS
Let's say you have three styles of tees on three different meshes, and you have a white tee in each style. For example: snug tees, loose tees, untucked tees... You could do this in BodyShop

cuSTeeWhite <-- snug tee
cuLTeeWhite <-- loose tee
cuUTeeWhite <-- untucked tee

You already do that though for your clothes, I noticed. I can separate the skirts from the halters from the shirts from the pants etc.

Yay! More recolors! These are beautiful! I'm really glad I cleaned out my downloads folder and got rid of the stuff I never use. Now I can put all your pretty clothes in my game without my download folder crying out in pain! Haha. Even if it was still stuffed I just can't help but download everything you make. I'm addicted! =)

Mesh links don't work. Does anyone know where they can be obtained? (Longshot considering how old these files are, but thanks!)
