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.

Stylish Comfort (Destroyed) Jeans - now available for female teens, (young) adults and elders!


UPDATED

Fix 2: December 14th, 2012 - all seams and tangents issues fixed jeans enabled for outerwear but also still basegame compatible! Final version (hopefully). Please redownload and delete your older versions!

Fix 1: August 15th, 2012 - fixed the mesh tangents


I am a huge denim fan and when I saw those wonderful meshes and textures of the Diesel stuffpack, I knew I had to take them as a base for my own work!
I altered one of the jeans meshes to my liking, converted it for teens and elders and designed my own version based on some of the diesel stuffpack textures.




So, what do you get?

Short answer: jeans that you can wear for almost every occasion

Detailed answer:
First off, design with a lot of attention to detail: glass studs at the front and back pockets, a shiny front button, recolorable fabric detail at the front pockets, recolorable stitching, custom tag at the back, destroyed version with custom holes and scratches in the front and the back.
I added a lot of variation in the presets:
The plain version has two presets which allow the recoloring of the studs and buttons. Every preset variant has two different overlay designs of the tag - one in grey leather, one in orange leather. Every preset has recolorable stitching and recolorable jeans fabric.
For the destroyed version, I made two extra presets that allow the recoloring of the frayed edges instead of recoloring of the studs and the button; the other two variants feature recolorable glass studs and button, but no recolorable frayed edges. So there are lots of possiblities to customize those beauties!




More goodies:
  • custom meshes
  • All LODs are properly included
  • custom bump maps
  • What you see is what you get: all jeans variations included in the pictures are actual presets!
  • four recolorable areas
  • custom CAS thumbnails
  • meshes are basegame compatible
  • Morphs work properly - the (young) adult mesh has a pregnant morph added!
  • age groups who can wear the jeans: teens, young adults, adults, elders
  • gender: female
  • clothing categories
    teen: everyday, valid for random
    (young) adults and elders:
    for the plain version: everyday, formal, career, makeover, valid for random, young adult and adult versions enabled for maternity, valid for random, enabled for outerwear (option only available if you have the seasons ep)
    for the destroyed version: everyday, career, makeover, valid for random, young adult and adult versions enabled for maternity, valid for random, enabled for outerwear (option only available if you have the seasons ep)

Previous versions had a visible seam, this is now fixed! If your version has a seam or if you have downloaded before december 14th 2012, please redownload!

Polygon Counts:
LOD 1: 4640 vertices, 4764 faces
LOD 2: 493 vertices, 1815 faces
LOD 3: 277 vertices, 858 faces

Additional Credits:
The jeans were made using TSR Workshop, Milkshape, Lithunwrap, S3PE, Photoshop and CmarNYC's brilliant MeshToolKit.

Special thanks go to Nepomukl for fixing the seams on my YA versions of the jeans (and thus giving me the chance/idea to fix all other versions as well - once and for all, I hope).

Skintones on my models are from Lemonleaf, Ephemera and Ladyfrontbum.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Great jeans, but, they leave a noticeable seam just above the bellybutton that goes all of the way around. So, great for shirts, but for halter tops and bathing suit tops, not so much.

@DaBoogadie Yes, I'm so sorry, I meant to mention that but forgot
The visible seam is a glitch with TSR Workshop that has been known for a long time but nobody found a solution/fix for it yet (and I think people at TSR just don't care about this, I reported this and a tsr workshop ticket was made regarding this problem about a year ago and still nothing was done to fix it).

You've got to either fix the normals in milkshape or run those meshes through Cmar's tanget tool. Those lines are totes fixable.

I haven't thought of the tangent tool, thanks omegastarr! The normals look perfectly aligned in milkshape, it's just TSRW that messes them up. I reuploaded the meshes. The tangent fix is an improvement, but the thin, visible seamline is still there for young adult and adult meshes. Teens are now seamless, though

I love these! I'm going to be using these a lot

Hey, and I'm just wondering, is the site messed up right now? For me all of the pictures are missing on all of the uploads. Or is it just my browser messing up?

I've been updating my download, maybe that's why you didn't see the pictures? I don't know how long it takes until the new dowload files appear - I hope soon

Is it possible to have these enabled for Teen maternity? Or how hard would that be to do myself? I absolutely love them, and the fact they are enabled for maternity makes them that much better!

*Clicks "Download" and "Thanks" button with authority* You know, Sims can never have too many pants. So thank you for these Simlicious. Now if I could only find better pants and shirts for male sims, most of the ones are just awful! But thanks again! =^_^=

#16 Old 17th Aug 2012 at 1:44 AM
Simlicious - Thanks for fixing the teen seam, and cleaning up TSR sloppiness. I wonder if the slight visible crack in the adult waist is due not to tangents, but possibly to vertex coordinates or bone weights? That would definitely be the case in Sims2, but I don't mesh for Sims3, so not sure.

@mandababy2003:
You would have to make a pregnant mesh yourself, since teens do not have pregnant meshes - it is certainly possible but I won't do it since I don't have teenager pregnancy in my game. You are welcome to modify my mesh and do a version for pregnant teens though!

@CatOfEvilGenius: The vertex coordinates are fine, but I haven't checked the bone weights. I'll look into it, thanks for the suggestion

@erveryone: thanks for your comments! I'm very glad you like my creation!
