This is a quick fix I made for my own game to replace those dreadful default nanny's clothes. I used new elder outfits from Open for Business, hence OFB required. There are only two default nanny outfits but three OFB elder outfits. So I made several files with a pair of outfits in each: red and green, red and purple, and green and purple. Use only one file at a time, drop it to your Downloads folder. All the nannies will wear the new outfit when you run the game. To uninstall delete the file.

Optional step to change makeup and refresh thumbanil views: To complete the nannies transformation I used Sim Boutique Clothing Rack by christianlov. First I bought them the same matching outfits and made them change into corresponding one. Then gave them a makeover which also refreshes their thumbnail views. It might be enought just to do a makeover, give it a try.

*Updated May 11/06* Added green and purple combination file as requested.

You ARE a Sims Goddess!
Thanks again Windkeeper! You always seem to solve a problem I've been having - my Sims have lots of babies, its nice to have a nanny that doesn't look like she lives in a nursing home!


If all the world's a stage...I want better lighting!

My mother and my husband's mother are around the ages of those nannies in the Sims. They NEVER look like those nannies in the game. What they wear is what you have here ... comfortable, coordinating, and NOT dowdy. Thanks!

Yay. Thanks for making it so that looking at the nannies won't make me loose my lunch or giving my little kids and toddlers nightmares. :D

Thanks for making this, actually looks like something the elder ladies in my neighborhood would wear over whatever grotesque thing the pre-made nannies have on them.

Something is wrong about your files. Red/Green and Red/Purple are identical in the game. Isn't one of them supposed to be that woman who has purple clothes on in the seccond screenshot?
