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 the adult version of these for QUITE some time. Once I got those done I was flipping through the teen clothing catalog and I spotted these, just sitting there, as if they were trying to mock me or something. Knowing that would never stand I grabbed my mouse and went to town on them. 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'. I also slightly changed the colors of each, that yellow was driving me bonkers. The color changes are subtle, so I hope nobody minds. 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).

I've also made up my standard catalog edit packages for you, you don't have to download the mesh/texture replacement package if you don't mind having your teens work out in flipflops! You can of course pick between my 'Added' and 'Moved' versions. More details below.

Because of the way the original UV Map was set up, to make my changes the UV Map also had to change, meaning ANY CC CLOTHES THAT USES THIS MESH is going to have their shoes messed up. Sorry, but that couldn't be helped. The original jumpers have the awful 'center shoe' position and my new version has the standard shoe position on the UV Map, hopefully this doesn't inconvenience anyone too terribly much. Also, any creators who use these jumpers as their base for new CC clothes, yes you can use my mesh, but tell users in your upload that they will need this mesh to have the shoes show up correctly (unless you want to do both kinds on the same texture, that would work too, though, its a bit more work on your part.)

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 file goes into your downloads folder like normal. The Added or Moved packages don't go there (well, technically they can, but its a bad idea). 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.

Polygon Counts:
Maxis Original: FaceCount-2186 VertexCount-1662
My Version: FaceCount-2030 VertexCount-1494

My version is actually less stressful on your videocard, meaning, your game will run faster! (though, not really noticeably)


P.S. Make sure you got the Adult Version as well! 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...
