Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Unlocked University outfits - young adult clothes made available for adults. Regular clothes, pajamas, undies, swimwear, and sportswear. University expansion pack required (duh!).

Note: Nightlife expansion pack unlocked several of young adult outfits. To prevent duplicates I've included two versions of the file. You only need to download one file. If you have NL, download the one for NL. This is also true for PETS version of the files. Drop the file to your Downloads folder. To uninstall simply remove the file.

Graduation gown file unlocks only graduation outfits and can be used together with either version of the files above.

Please report any duplicates or missing clothes.
_______________________________________

*Update May 18/06* Fixed both files, removed extra record that could cause one pajamas outfit to not show up.

*Update May 27/06* Added missing cheerleader outfits to both files. Note: cheerleader outfits are not marked as Uni clothes in the game catalog, scroll to regular clothes to find them.

*Update May 28/06* Added graduation gowns and hats file, as requested.

*Update Oct 27/06* Added missing tracksuit tops and bottoms.

*Update Nov 19/06* Two major updates! First, added more outfits to both versions, mostly those that used to be for teens but later Maxis converted them for adults. Second, added PETS versions of the files. This should help fix the problem where the unlocked outfits were showing as custom (with asterisk). They should now show up as Uni outfits.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Ooh, thank you!! I just converted a bunch of Uni clothes for myself this weekend, but this hack is so much better. LOL. So if we make recolours using these unlocked outfits as bases, will people need this hack for the recolours to work on adults?

No, they wont need this hack, the recolors will work without it.

Perfect, thank you! If you don't mind my asking, how does it work? Were they always built into the game for adults but just locked like career uniforms? If that's the case then recolours would require University, right?

Yes, I guess its similar to career uniforms. Adults and young adults have the same proportions mesh-wise, they are just marked as different age groups. Thats why its easy to set an outfit to work for both, all you change is the age. Thats what the hack does, it changes the age group of Uni outfits to include regular adults.

Yes, recolors would require Uni, in most cases. Unless the mesh was originally from Sims 2. Like pajamas for example, their meshes were in the game, Uni only brought different recolors. On the other hand hippi outfits would require Uni because their meshes come with Uni.

Ohh, I see. So it changes the age category like we can do with BodyShop+SimPE, but on the original outfits instead of on clones? Sort of like a default replacement? And when we then clone those outfits for recolours, the clones will keep the 48 age number? Sorry for all the annoying questions, I just like to understand how these things work.

Yes, you got it exactly right . It IS a default replacement of sort.

windkeeper, I've noticed one possible glitch since putting in this great mod. One pair of my adult male pajama pants disappeared; the plaid ones. Everything else appears to work great, though.

Thanks,

I checked the files, found one extra record for pajama pants in each and removed it. It wasn't related to plaid pants though, don't know if this will fix your problem. Download the file again and give it a try. Btw, all pajamas still visible in my game. Let me know your result.

Thanks very much for making this.
One prob I have is - I have a hack that makes the mannequins nude in Bodyshop, which is essential for genetics making. This file makes all the mannequins display using uni undies.

Is there anything you can do to prevent this, or should I just remove the file prior to me wanting to make a genetics set. <--- I know thats the obvious option, but I most likely would forget to remove it and a Bodyshop for me takes about 30 mins to load up, thats why i'm asking if there is anything you can do.

If not thats ok

Thanks again you're a star and your contributions to the community are always very much appreciated.

It really depends whats in that hack. I also made a similar hack though I didn't test it together with these unlocked outfits. I think it should work. The hack is in the adult section which is not accessible at the moment, you could try it later.

Thank you so much for this! Now my adults that think they're still in college can wear stuff (LOL!). Totally Awesome!
Is it possible to make adult clothes for the elders? (so the elder women won't sag? ha ha)

Everything happens for a reason!

Do you have University? Download file again, place it in your Downloads folder and try again. You can test it with BodyShop if you don't want to start the game.

The NL version does not work at all for me. The other version does. There are no duplicates. The Cheerleader outfits are missing. Is there any chance you can fix those? Thank you so much for the ones that do work.
