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.
These files are my effort to give myself plain shifts that will work in my period hood. The default version also functions to replace the Maxis Maternity PJs, so sims will "pop" into these instead of Maxis PJs. These outfits are for all 4 ages, but the teen, adult/young adult and elder each has its own mesh. For the teen and elder recolors to show up, you MUST have the adult files in your game, because only the adult files contain actual textures. The others are references. Each mesh has a working fat morph, and the teen and adult/young adult meshes have working pregnancy morphs.



What is Included in the Zips
Defaults
This includes a default replacement for the Maxis bodypajamas classic meshes and textures. Because teens, adults, young adults and elders share the textures in the game, this default replaces all of those ages. It also is used by the game as the default maternity pjs, so with my defaults installed sims will "pop" into the elbow sleeved shifts instead of the maxis pjs.



Remember that with Defaults there can be only one for any mesh, so make sure you take out any other defaults for these pjs before using this one.

Custom Elbow Sleeve Mesh and Recolors
These are the same as the defaults but custom versions that can be used as undies, swim and athletic as well as pjs. It also makes all colors available for all ages. The adult files have the textures


Alpha Mesh and Recolors
A shift with alpha editable sleeves, so that it can be adapted for different types of gowns worn. This zip includes 3 meshes (adult/young adult, elder andd teen) with 3 alpha edits: short sleeves, elbow sleeves (pic below) and long fitted sleeves (pic attached). There are 3 colors for each alpha edit. The adult files contain the textures. The others are just references. These will show up as athletic, undies, swim and pjs.



I hope some of you find a use for these. Please let me know if you have any issues. Comments are always appreciate. Thanks for looking and for reading this far

The textures are on the Maxis pajama mesh, yeah. I'm pretty sure my graphics settings in game are set to high, too. I'll boot up really quick and check.

My thumbnails are just fine, though.

I glad your thumbnail, at least are good

Okay, my suspicion is that you might have a default conflict. Could you possibly have mod to make the maxis pants longer or be using Bloom's sexy feet or some other mesh replacement? If any mod like that is loading after mine, then you would see my textures on the pants mesh.

Other than something else overriding the same mesh and loading later or low graphics settings not displaying the mesh correctly, I'm not sure what would cause the issue you're having. A sure way to test for a conflict would be to move your full downloads folder to your desktop and load the game with only these defaults in the downloads folder. If they work that way, then, it's a conflict with some other piece of CC you have.

Please let me know, what happens. If you do find a conflict it would be helpful to put it in the original post, so others who have the same problem know what to look for.

Thanks for letting me know!

Sorry I'm just now posting back!

You were right, it was Bloom's sexy feet replacement that was loading last.

Thank you so much for the help and these wonderful replacements!

If you see Maxis thumbnails and the nightgowns display correctly on sims, you probably can fix it by deleting your Groups Cache file in your Sims 2 folder and the CAS Thumbnails file in your Thumbnails folder. The game will regenerate these files, and any defaults you have added should then display correct thumbnails.


Hello, I had an issue too. But it's different. Default works only on mesh and TWO textures. And I have good thumbnails. All the maxis pajamas have taken Your mesh, so now they don't have trousers, but they still got Maxis textures! Only two of them works with Yours, there is the one with embroidery and the other one, the rest is with maxis textures streched to Your mesh. I wondered what to do, So I put all the adult custom textures (but not the alpha version) into my DL folder, but problem is still the same. I have the maxis base underwear replacement in my game (Bienchen83 as I remember) but it shouldn't conflict with pajamas?

OK, I had jecked it out and I had 2 Bienchens replacements, one fo pj's and there was a conflict. When I deleted Bienchen's one, Your PJ works correctly

Was looking for some good nightgowns. The ones in game were just not long enough for the project I'm working on.

Hey. How do I remove this from my game? I found it in my folders and put it in the trash but I still find it in game. I like these pjs but I want the defaults back srsly.
