Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a small package that enables Hysterical Paroxysm's Puff Sleeved Sundresses as maternity replacements. As with normal maxis maternity wear the outfit is picked at random. There are hacks that allow you to choose what outfits pregnant sims wear, but I'm way too lazy to micromanage in that way, so I prefer a nice set of replacements.
This mod does not require any "pregnant sims wear anything" hack, but should be compatible with them.

This is not a stand-alone package; you need to download and install the mesh and recolours from HP. Specifically these files:
CMESH_AF_O_Sundress_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_60sGreenFlowers_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Black_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_BlueandRed_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Brown_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_DkBlue_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Green_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_LtBlue_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_Pink_HystericalParoxysm.package
CR_AF_O_Sundress_PinkYellowDiamonds_HystericalParoxysm.package

There are 9 Maxis maternity outfits, so I could only use 9 of HP's dresses. To avoid having to make any hard decisions I just went with the first 9 (alphabetically).

Because the outfits are randomly assigned, I didn't get screenshots of all the different recolours; tat would just require too many test pregnancies; go to the original download for previews.

Note! This is a replacement package. You can only have one maternity replacement set installed at a time. This is not compatible with anything else that modifies the default maternity outfit mesh.

In your game with this replacement!!! They are conflicting mesh replacements and CAN NOT be used together! You must have ONE OR THE OTHER. You can have the replacements for all except for the Maxis maternity wear. You must search for and DELETE the file called "MESH_tmo-Default-PregMorph_afBodyMaternityShirtPants.package" from your Downloads folder in order for this to work correctly!


Just dropping in to report that I have the same problem that everyone else has mentioned (sundress textures on maxis mesh). So, as suggested I have searched with the Download Organizer, but it turns out that I DO NOT have MESH_tmo-Default-PregMorph_afBodyMaternityShirtPants.package in my Downloads, nor any other meshes that replace maternity wear. I have no maternity hacks, and I do not have BV (the only EPs I do have are Pets and Seasons).

In fact, I rebooted my game with ONLY the following things in my Downloads folder:
- HP's sundress mesh and recolors
- this default replacement file
And the result? Pregnant women wearing HP's sundress textures over the Maxis mesh. So something is majorly borked here, and it is not a conflict in my Downloads folder. HP's sundresses work fine on their own, without this file.

I notice that HP has given a reply in her own sundress thread saying that your replacement should work fine through Seasons, but clearly that is not the case. Any explanation for this? Do I need to have some earlier EPs that I don't have already? If that is the case I will just go back to Squinge's mod. Too bad, though: the idea of these as defaults is fantastic and so much easier.

I have all EPs and SPs save for Mansion and Garden and this still does work in my game, no problems...so I'm not sure what your problem would be. Do you have a PregWearAnything hack? Because I have one of those...maybe that's the issue?

Sounds like you neglected to download and install the mesh and recolours from HP, as instructed in the Overview.

It won't open on my computer, but they really are nice. The Maxis are just awful. They make my most gorgeous Sims look so squeezed.

Is there any way that I can download a .zip form of the sundresses? I'm a bit of a noob, and I can't open an .rar file.

I'm having the "sundress texture over Maxis mesh" problem too. The weird thing is that this default replacement worked fine for years and all of a sudden it stopped working, and I do not have any maternity hack. I do have other hacks, and I'm thinking the dresses may have stopped working after I downloaded the ACR, the Visitor Controller or the Sim Blender (I downloaded these at the same time, but I don't remember the exact moment in which the dresses stopped working. In fact, they may not have anything to do with each other at all). I even tried deleting the files and downloading them again, but nothing. It's such a shame because I really liked these dresses.
Has anyone figured out a solution?
