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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've been wanting to do these for QUITE some time, ever since before I first opened Milkshape for the first time in fact. I've hated these silly jumpers being in Everyday and I hated them having flip-flops. NO MORE, SILLY JUMPERS, YOU WILL YIELD TO ME!

Ok, so thats a bit much, but anyways, I edited out the flip-flops and replaced them with decent sneakers, which I stole from another Maxis outfit, so don't worry, nothing looks 'out of place'. To change them I had to edit the mesh and the texture files, so you get a double-whammy package (I couldn't figure any reason you'd ever want just one or the other, they look ridiculous by themselves, so I stuffed them into one package).

These are DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS, meaning, when you place them in your downloads folder, they will act as Maxis clothing, completely replacing their counterparts. This includes sims currently wearing them. If you want to remove mine and return to the maxis versions, just delete my package from your downloads folder. Btw, if you want your clothing catalog images to reflect these changes, delete your thumbnails folder: C:\Documents and Settings\(yourname)\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Thumbnails. The game will generate new ones.

The other two files are catalog edit packages. They will move the jumpers to your Athleticwear bin. You can choose between the MOVED file (moves the jumpers to Athleticwear and removes them from Everyday) and the ADDED file (adds the jumpers to Athleticwear but also leaves them in Everyday). Its up to you which one you want. I personally HATE having 6 thousand maxis clothes in my everyday, especially when 2 thousand of them in my opinion aren't 'Everyday' type clothes anyways! (If that bugs you too, check out this Catalog Edit Mod of mine!)

Installation Instructions:
The MESHtexture package goes in your downloads folder like normal. The catalog edit packages DO NOT (well they can, but its a bad idea all around). Put the files in the following location instead of in your Downloads folder. C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Bon Voyage\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins (or whichever is your highest expansion pack folder).

You can put these files in your Downloads folder, but if you do, the delete button will be enabled in CAS and Body Shop. Do NOT delete them in CAS or Body Shop. Doing so may corrupt some of your game files. To remove the outfits from your Athleticwear bin, delete these package files from where you installed them to.

For those who like the idea, but are going to complain for me to make them as regular CC instead of defaults, that was my very first upload ever. There was no mesh editing, still looks decent, just not perfect, that's the price you pay for whining I guess. Get it here.

Polygon Counts:
Maxis Original: FaceCount-2322 VertexCount-1573
My Version FaceCount-2162 VertexCount-1540

My version is actually less stress on your videocard, which will make your game run faster! (though not noticeably)


P.S. Make sure you get the Teen Version of this as well! (yes, they also have bad jumper/flip-flop outfits hanging out in everyday) I've got more default replacements, check them all out here !

I love reading comments, leave me a couple?

Additional Credits:
Stupid photoshop, this upload got rejected because of crunchy pictures, I retook my pictures and reuploaded them 4 times before I realized it wasn't the camera's fault, it was photoshop saving them as tiny files, for reasons I don't understand...
