One of the hairstyles is the male "hairgibs". It doesn't appear to be genetically transferred and the only way you can get it is to put it on your sim when creating a new one. You can't see it from the change appearance using the mirrors. The only way you can see it is using Boolprop with the Shift N in create a sim mode. Its available for kids through elders.

Morague, is there a special way to do the reaper? I got him into Bodyshop, but the recolored skin didn't show up. Also, after editing all the image files in SimPE I could find of him, the original (boolprop, Shift+N) reaper looked the same in the game.

The Reaper is strange - I was looking at it a few weeks ago. It doesn't follow the general rules & I didn't get it to a point where it coule be edited :/

sissimoody - I'll have a look at the hair this week. I don't know when I will actually be able to extract them, hopefully not too long, but I will have a look

Ok - I have unlocked the "hairgibs" hair mesh - it's beau's hair style. You can find it at Morague's Place

Have a look around while you are there I've done default replacements for both the male & female pregnancy outfits & of course unlocked outfits.

Hi

A breakthrough - I've finally cracked the Grim Reaper! You can fully edit it & using the "hair" I did you won't run into the problem of the hair sticking through. I did both versions - with the lei & without.

Default Grim Reaper Outfit
First of all, thank you for all your hard working in trying to get the Reaper's outfit to show up!!

I download all four of your zipped files and unzipped them too. I then went into bodyshop, but alas they're still not there. I'm particularly interested in the outfit, so I'm not sure how else to access it. Can you let me know how I can, so that I can tweak it? I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thank you,

Goblin_Girl

Make sure the outfits are in your Downloads folder & not in some sub-folder. They should show up under the Everyday caregory for either an adult male or female. The "hair" shows up in the custom category hair.

*blushes* I guess I'm not sure what you mean. Let me walk you through it and then if you don't mind maybe you can let me know what I did wrong?

I downloaded all 4 of the zipped files for the Reaper.
I saved them to my desktop, so I could run Norton with them before I opened them up.
I then double-clicked on them on my desktop and unzipped them. The unzipped files (which were for SimPe) were then on my desktop.

I tried to double-click on each of them via the desktop, but they only bring up SimPe.

This is where I get stuck, since I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to do something with them in SimPE or BodyShop.

Once again, thank you for all your work, and I hope you don't mind me getting technical with you. I'm very excited to get them working, so let me know if you can.

*hugs*

Ah, ok. This is easy enough to fix. Right click on the desktop icon & choose Copy from the list. Now, Double Click on the "My Computer" icon. You should see Drive C, so double click on that & find "Documents & Settings" - keep double clicking - look for "Your Name", "My Documents", "EA Games", "The Sims2", "Downloads" when you finally reach the Downloads folder, do Ctrl V to paste the file or right click in the Downloads folder & choose Paste from the list. You'll need to repeat this for all of the files. Once there are copies in the Downloads folder you can delete the ones on the Desktop.

It might be easier to just unzip them again. Double click on the zipped files & after you click Extract, click on that little arrow. It will let you find your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims2\Downloads folder. Just unzip the files into that folder.

Have anyone unlocked all Clothes and Hairs from Sims 2, University and Nightlife? I would like to use them all but it's too hard for me to do this (I'm a bit dumb and lazy).

Thanks for everything.

It worked! I was able to play with them a little in my BodyShop. With that being said, I noticed a few things... One of them was that it made the back of the sims head invisible, at least in my program. I also noticed that after I had downloaded these, my other sims were missing the back of their heads if I blacked out their alpha area, and it didn't do that before. Any reason why?

Also, I couldn't get rid or even manipulate the reaper's hood. I was wondering if there's a separate download for his hair/head, since most Sims have that, in order to manipulate anything above the neck. I'd love to be able to see the person's head and face, but still keep the robe and the invisibility of the feet. I'd love to hear if you've been able to do that.

Thanks again!

Hi

Ok, I have a forum with almost all of the hair & outfitrs unlocked Morague's Unlocked Outfits

I haven't done NightLife outfits yet, but I will get to them shortly. If you can't see what you are looking for right away you might need to expand what is being shown. The default only shows the last month & a lot of the outfits were extracted months ago, so chose Show All or From the Beginning or whatever to see everything.

You'll find outfits that have an associated hat in the Hair, Hats & Heads category rather than Unlocked outfits as I tried to keep them together. so, the maid's outfit is under Hair, Hats & Heads.

simmygurl,

I'm not sure why you are having problems but I have run into other situations with SimPE Classic. Try using the other format. However, there are a whole lot more steps to unlocking the maid's outfit than with regular outfits because her apron is treated differently & because it is about 50 more steps I haven't done a tutorial on it.

I don't know why you don't just download it from my forum - it's already unlocked & it is unlocked correctly with the hat as well so that both can be edited.

My forum has almost all of the outfits already unlocked Morague's Unlocked Clothing Look in the Hair, Hats & Heads section for the maid's outfit & hat or use the Search feature to search for maid outfit.

No idea what 'help' you need, but you can find almost all the unlocked outfits at various simmers - the link to them was provided on the previous page of posts, just back up one page and look/
