It's time for wine and wenches at your favorite public house. This game mod features two sets of default NPC replacements ready to work in dining establishments. Using these replacements, your NPCs will automatically appear in your game wearing era appropriate clothing. Choose from either patterned Red or Green fabric matching uniforms that will fit in both formal and casual environments.

NPCs included:

Restaurant Host
Servers
Chef
Bartender
Cafeteria Worker
Barista
Clerks

INFORMATION:
Each NPC replacement package already includes the necessary mesh required, therefore you do NOT need to download any additional files or meshes for this set to work. However, if you would like your playable characters to wear the included apparel too, download the mesh files from the credits list below.

Also, you can only use one set at a time (Red or Green - not both), but you can swap them out as often as you prefer. Please note that this set comes with new Clerks and Bartenders. If you are already using the Clerks and Bartenders from the Royal or Commoners set, they will need to be removed (or you need to not use the ones from this set). Either way you have a choice.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Two folders have been provided, one includes the apparel files, the other NPC replacement files. The apparel are non-default and do not need to be swapped out (they can also be worn by your playable characters if you have the correct meshes listed in the credits). The NPC Replacements are the defaults and you can only have one set of each character at a time in your game. Put all these files directly into your Sims2 -> Downloads folder.

UPDATE 12/31/12
I have received reports of certain characters not showing up consistently in some people's games. So, I've updated all the NPC mesh package files for this set. I did figure out the error and believe I've corrected the problem. Tests on multiple pcs have proven successful, therefore I'm hoping everyone will be able to use this set now. If you have an issue with any characters not showing up, then please redownload this set. Delete and replace with the update. No changes have been made to the apparel files - only the NPC .packages.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Tee Hee...I am grabbing everything you make. After all I have a LOT of medieval lots to staff appropriately! It is definitely the time to create a totally medieval hood and your great default replacements are a fabulous addition. Thank you for sharing these!

I downloaded these, and they looked amazing; however, for some reason when I loaded my game today, all of the NPCs who originally had these outfits were...I'm not sure how to describe this...their bodies took the shape of the outfits; however, they were naked! I tried redownloading the outfits, and installing the patch for the current game I have, but that didn't work either
Any suggestions?

If your NPCs are naked, but in the shape of the mesh this means that the texture file is not showing up. Check your downloads folder to be certain they are in it. These are default replacements and CEP and/or a game patch should not be needed for them to work. Also be certain that there are no other default replacement outfits for these characters in your game...you can only use one set at a time.

Oh, turns out I didn't have the texture files. Silly me! Thanks for the help! (By the way, I love these, they make my medieval neighborhood so much nicer)

Thanks for doing this for all the Medieval players.

Now that I'm reinstalling Sims 2, I'd like a Victorian set of replacement NPC clothing.
I'm making all of Sims 2, Victorian, and have been gradually adding Victorian clothing and hair syles as I run across them. A lot of the furniture can pass for Victorian. Anyhow, thanks for sharing.

Works like a charm and all my NPCs look so much prettier to boot, thank you! :D

Other people: Be sure to download the extra meshes to go with the great non-defaults, you'll be glad you did!
