Click on create clothing. Select toddler male and highlight the Baby Blue Tuxedo
Click on export selected textures.
Give your project a name. I used PTS_(my site identifier please do not use)BBTuxFIXED. You can use whatever you want.
Enter a name for the tool tip. I used Baby Blue Tux *FIXED*
Import back into the game.
Close Body Shop. We won't be needing it anymore.
Open your newly cloned package located in My Documents/Ea Games/The Sims2/Saved Sims. You can right click and select arrange by modified to find it easily. It should be the last one on your list if you do it once, first on the list if you do it twice.
Select the property set (GZPS) and located the line "flags" located below species normally. Change the value to 0x00000010.
Locate the line "category" and change the value to 0x0000027F. This will place the tux in all categories. The others are as follows...
If you only want it as just formal than use the formal code and not 0x0000027F. I've read the way to do multiple ones is to add the numbers together but I haven't really tried it. Example Undies 0x00000040 + Swim 0x00000008 = 0x00000048. Like I said I never tried it so I'm not 100% certain. But Everyday 0x00000007 + Formal 0x00000020 + Undies 0x00000040 + PJ 0x00000010 + Swim 0x00000008 + Workout 0x00000200 = 0x0000027F when added using a hexidecimal calculator. There's one included with Windows that can add hexidecimal when set to scientific mode and then hex. Once you're done here commit and save.
From the property set you can also change other things and here's the information for that.
The age controls the age the clothing will be used on. I wouldn't recommend trying this on anything other than adults and young adults as it can have some weird effects but here are the codes for that.
So Adult: 0x00000008 + Young adult: 0x00000040 = 0x00000048
The gender line controls, well the gender. This can make a specific clothing item work for either or both genders. This works best on toddlers and children since their bodies are the same. Older than that you could have some weird things like you males having breasts, females having penises, etc. If you're interested in that type of thing this might come in handy. The codes are...
What's 0x00000001 + 0x00000002 boys and girls? 0x00000003 is the code for both genders.
Close SimPE and go to test in the game they will not show up in Body Shop. Go on a shopping trip or create a new toddler and your clothing should appear in the proper category.
You can assign the clothing to newly created Sims as you would any other piece of clothing in CAS. For sims you've already created you need hacked dresser linked to above in order to use the plan outfit option for toddlers. Please note that when using the plan outfit option on the dresser you must have more than one item of that type in your dresser. So if you want to change swimsuits you need to buy two of them, two formal, two work out, etc.
These have no real practical use in the game but they make nice little bits for stories and such instead of having to have swimwear and formal as everyday attire. You can use the change clothes hack linked to above to change the toddler into which ever piece of clothing you wish them to wear. You can also access the change clothes option without the hack by typing boolprop testingcheatsenabled true and shift clicking on your toddler and selecting change clothes. This is availible for all versions of the game while the hack I can only guarantee works with all expansions installed.
I hope this has been somewhat helpful for those of you wishing to have your items categorized properly and usable in game. This tutorial was written with the complete modding dullard in mind (hence why it took one to write it), so hopefully it's pretty easy to follow. Please feel free to pm me if you have any questions or troubles with this tutorial.
Added note by Tiggerypum:
This is also very useful when you have an already finished bodyshop recolor and realize the categories are not what you'd like - you can just go in and change it without making a new recolor.
OMFG THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU XD
I found another tutorial but it was too confusing. This made it nice and simple and I was able to change an outfit to all the catagories that I needed for all the catagories XD
At this point it's probably just as easy to use Jfade's Wardrobe Wrangler to do this. It's much easier to use and a much faster process.
The change clothes mod is most likely gone for good. I made it so long ago that the only version I still have is the Apartment Life version which will most likely not work with earlier expansion packs and I wouldn't recommend it anyways since it'd probably add a bunch of useless pie menus if it doesn't just cause the game to crash outright.
