Clothing equality mod - adult clothes for elders, buyable maternity and work
« on: 2005 November 01, 14:29:48 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

The file that makes Maxis Maternity Clothes show up as Everyday is the 4th and last file attachment at the bottom of this post

*EDIT* Sims Baby now has made the Glamour Life Stuff clothing available for elders. Get the male ones  here and the female ones here

Getting Adult Maxis clothes to show up for Elders:

- If you have the base game only or don't care about getting NL or OFB outfits for elders get Maxis adult clothes for A YA & E

- If you have NL but not OFB get Maxis adult clothes for A YA & E (NL)

- If you have NL and OFB get Maxis adult clothes for A YA & E (NL-OFB)

This is what these files do:

- All adult clothing that came with the original TS2 game buyable and wearable for adults, young adults and elders.
- All of the above will also show up in the bodyshop and new outfits can be made from them. The new outfit will retain its ability to be bought and worn by adults, young adults and elders.
- Sweatsuits, coach outfits, Hiphop sweats (male), drawstring pajama pants (male), tanktop with suspenders (female), and 'diving' bathing suit (female) have been made to be also available as workout clothes.
- Korean clothing from formal is now also buyable as everyday.
- Maxis wedding outfits are now buyable.

Some notes and things to be aware of:

Don't mix and match an elder bottom with and adult top or vice versa, it will leave a gap. If you use one of the recategorized adult tops for an elder you need to also find a recategorized adult bottom to go with it.

This file doesn't contain any meshes or textures at all. It's just property set values changed to make the original Maxis clothes show up under different age groups or categories

Custom clothing is not effected by this at all. If you want custom adult clothes for elders, you'll have to manually change it.

I have posted a tutorial here: http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php?topic=1281.0

Fairiegurl has a tutorial here: http://www5.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=52437

If you recolor a Maxis outfit with one of these files in your downloads directory, your new recolored outfit will also be available for Elders. The user who downloads your outfit will not need any of these files to make your new outfit show up for elders, it will be automatically built into your clothing recolor package file to be Elder enabled.

**Other Files**

Elder Clothing Hide

This second file hides all of the original Maxis hunched over and saggy mesh elder clothing. This file is completely optional and not needed to run the first file. If you want to be able to buy adult clothes for your elders but still want some elders to use the original saggy clothing then don't get this file.

It does not remove or delete anything from the game, it merely hides the original Maxis elder clothes from showing up in the clothing buying tool, the CAS and the bodyshop. Service npcs and townies will not be effected and will still wear their original hunched elder clothing. Any sim who is currently wearing elder clothing will continue to do so until and unless you plan their outfit to something else and any sim who has original Maxis elder clothing in their closet will continue to keep those items in their closet. This won't remove them.

Basically, only get this if you never plan to use the original Maxis elder clothes again on your playable sims and are sick of looking at saggy tits when you go shopping. Wink

Buyable Work and NPC Clothes
*Edit* Military uniforms now show up as formal as well
- All NPC and career outfits are unlocked and buyable for adults, young adults and elders.
- Some other hidden outfits like the Gamespot and IGN promo ones are now unlocked and buyable.

Buyable Maxis Maternity Clothes
- Pregnancy clothes for males and females are now buyable as everyday for adults, young adults and elders.

The pregancy clothes will not make your sim pregnant or give them a belly, it's just buyable as everyday, though they are really loose fitting, particularly the female one. It won't effect pregnant sims ability to get those outfits, they will still get them as normal and get the belly particular to their day of pregnancy.

-----

As far as credits go, do whatever you want with it, share it or upload it where ever. No need to credit me. Just make sure if you do upload it somewhere that people know what they are getting into. I don't want to see a bunch of threads from people saying 'HEEEELLLLPPPP!!!!! MY ELDER CLOTHES ARE GONE!!!!!!!!!!' etc. Oh and take these files out of your downloads temporarily please when packing up a house otherwise someone might get an unwanted surprise. :p

I've tested these in my game and everything seems to be working fine, but if you run into any problems please let me know and I'll do my best to look into them and fix it.





Thanks to Hairfish for the pictures and mirroring the files.

Thanks to Curious Spurious for getting off her butt when I didn't and updating this to NL and OFB.

You have no idea how happy this makes me! I hate the elder stage only because of the hunched-over-nipples-to-the-knees look. Thanks so much Motoki. <insert very happy emoticon here>

Thank you Motoki.   I hate the hunched over elders, I'm one myself and don't walk like that.

Ah.. My days of being frightened by elder female's massive-protruding-from-the-side-thighs are finally over. And I can finally get at those special outfits anytime I want them, huzzah!

The  best aspect of this is that I can use the adult clothing for my fit elders and the elder clothing for my fatties.  For the in-betweenies I have various custom meshes that improve the elder one without going as far as using adult clothes does.  I just wish I could use my custom adult clothes, because the majority of the Maxis ones are so awful they're actually worse than the elder clothes!  I don't really want my elder females going around in tarty tops and so on.  So, I await your tutorial eagerly.  Actually, I probably don't, seeing as I've done it before myself.  Silly me.

This is great.  It will save me so much time exporting all the adult clothes I like and modifying them for elders.  That will save space on my hard drive as well.  I look forward to your Uni and NL editions. Smiley

Now we just need an Elder Slouch walk fix.

Is there any way to make all the different color hair available to Elders besides the basic boring dull gray?

You're welcome. And I also wouldn't complain if someone got rid of some of the more annoying elder idle animations like back rubbing and such. *hinthint* Wink

Oh and I see I am officially a peasant now. Go me.  Grin I take it this is the place for the peasantry who are less awesome than Pescado and TwoJeffs to post their sundries?

You can do it through custom hairs you make in the bodyshop. Problem is those have all the other age groups too and are huge files. I was thinking of going in and doing that and just yanking out all the data for the other age groups but A) the files will be signifigantly larger than this one is because it will contain lots of textures and B) does anyone like the Maxis hair? Wink

I'll see if I can finagle something where it can make a new custom hair entry but will grab an existing Maxis adult hair texture file from the game files without me having to waste space and include a duplicate. I know custom gets really messy when you have a lot of custom hairs, particularly for elders when almost no one messes with them so you get all these clones of grey Maxis hair for every custom adult hair color you download, but I don't want to go so far as to mess with overriding the default Maxis elder grey completely.

Well, I like some of the Maxis hair, especially since that's all you have to choose from at first.  I have started downloading some custom hair but it does get messy trying to sort through all of them under the Custom icon.  And it annoys me that most of the people who make custom hair only let the elders have a gray version of it instead of any of the colors like adults have.  There are lots of people who dye their hair.  Why can't elder sims???  You make a good point about cloning the adult hair for elders.  I have done that and now I have all these cluttering up my custom hair section in all age groups.

Thank you Motoki many times over. The elder bodies have been one of my major pet peeves, they should only look the way Maxis depicted them if they're low in fitness. Now my elders can look beautiful like my grandma.
