I've been de-customizing and updating several Maxis official clothings and objects. (preorders/Exchange stuff)What's the difference:
- Objects were updated to Apartment Life, in case update is required.
- Unrecolorable objects and formerly unrecolorable subset in recolorable objects were made recolorable.
- Redundant resources like duplicate textures and animation files were removed to reduce the size. Compressed with jfade's compressorizer.
- Custom star was removed from clothing/hair thumbnails. Instead they bear the corresponding EP/SP icon.
- Clothings/hairs were categorized into the Maxis clothing bin, so they'll appear right beside similar Maxis stuff.
- Unused hidden textures were retrieved.
- Adult clothings were enabled for YAs.
- Separate MMAT files for objects were integrated into the main 3D file to make one uncluttered package.
- Object placement settings were adjusted, so that sculptures can be placed on OFB shelves and decorative slots like mantel or low dressers. Small sculptures can serve as centerpieces.
- Decorative objects will give appropriate Enthusiasm in FT.
- New decorative slots were created on top of some objects.
- Minor bugs were fixed, like borked shoe sound on some clothings.
Decustomized OFB preorder Chicken Mascot Suit. They bear OFB icon, and will appear grouped with other OFB mascot costumes/hairs.
Below are the first offerings, OFB and FFS preorders. I already uploaded GLS preorders in other thread. Ultimately I'm going to decustomize/update all preorder and Exchange stuff, so check back this thread for future releases.2008-04-04
