This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Here's a little mod to make the Maxis firefighter outfits & hats available in Bodyshop, CAS, and on clothing racks in-game. The clothes are for Adults only (Everyday Only), the hats should also work for Elders. Er... I guess that was a slight oversight, heh.... since I never play YAs or Elders I tend to ignore 'em when it comes to clothing availability. You can always edit the file if you like. Here's a great tutorial that explains how. And here's a version that makes the clothes avaliable to YAs/Adults/Elders but doesn't unlock the hats. That version and mine aren't completely compatible though, so you may wanna just edit one of them yourself if you're not content with either. Sorry about that. I made this mod a while ago and had no intentions to upload it 'till someone requested it the other day. Now I have no desire to edit it, but perhaps someone will find it useful as-is.

Installation Instructions:
This mod will work in your Downloads folder, but putting it there might enable the delete button in Body Shop and CAS. Do NOT delete Maxis content from Body Shop or CAS. Doing so will corrupt your game files. To hide the stuff again, just delete my package file from your Downloads folder. To be extra safe, you can make a subfolder in the following location and put the file there instead of in your Downloads folder. This way the delete button will be disabled.

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 YOUR LATEST EP\TSData\Res\Catalog\Skins

(or the corresponding folder on your system if your game is not in C:\Program Files)

Additional Credits:
If you like this mod, thank crimsonbutterfly - it wouldn't be uploaded if not for her request.

Awsome. They look great. Now my sims can be firefighters if they want. Time to start building the firehall!

Great stuff! I should definitely make a firefighter sim even if he only dresses like one!

Couldn't you just use the "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" cheat?

No. Not if you want to recolour them or use them on existing sims.

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

This would be great if you could do something like this for the military career.
