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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Moving career outfits from Everyday and placing them in Athleticwear tends to break the career, not exactly what everyone wants. We want to be able to use the sporty outfits for work and for workouts. The best way I've come up will being able to have both is create a tiny clone of the outfit (tiny because it doesn't contain its own texture, repository action is sweet!) The real outfit remains safely hidden in Everyday so your simmies can go to work in it and these new clones reside only in Athletic. This is meant to work in conjunction with my Clothing Mod V2 but will work just fine without it.

I'm providing the two hidden basegame black sports outfits for teens, adults, and elders of both genders, and also all the new FreeTime outfits for all ages and both genders. From what I can tell the old FreeTime patch hid all these outfits and there was a big to-do about it. This will help you out if that happened to you. You will get brand new versions of all the outfits. Because of how these are made though, you need FreeTime to get the FreeTime outfits, otherwise they won't display correctly, no cheaty stuff here. If you like what I did to the BaseGame outfits they have been recently included in my Athleticwear default replacements. Otherwise the outfit will just be solid black with white details.



Install instructions: Place them directly, or make a subfolder, in the following location and put the files there instead of in your Downloads folder. C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 FreeTime\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 Sleepwear bin, delete the package file from where you installed them.

Enjoy!
