Has the clothing tool changed, or is it AL??
« on: 2008 September 08, 02:30:54 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I had my first uni graduate post AL last night.  Usually the clothing tool lets me buy new clothes for graduates at a premium to get them out of the fugly aging outfits the game usually foists upon my sims, however this time I got a new dialog box which simply said 'Suggest Outfit' and gave me all the clothes as an option to change to.  I don't think it cost her any money, either.

Has the clothing tool had it's functions changed, or is this an AL feature?

I have been wondering the same thing.  If I want 5 different everyday outfits, I have to go through Pick New Clothes five times in a row.  That gets old pretty fast.  If it was changed that way on purpose, why?

EDIT to add:  I don't normally play with clothingtool_globals installed.  Doesn't seem to make any difference, I can only select one outfit at a time, even on a home lot.

Well, it's not AL.  I only have up to BV and the behaviour is the same for me.  The clothingtool was updated recently, so I think it's safe to assume that it has changed although the RTFM does not reflect this.  Personally, I don't mind the difference.  It used to have twice as many dialogs (one to buy and another to plan for every category), and it's nice to speed through when I just want to snag one outfit.  It does feel a little cheaty to get new clothes at no charge, but I used a money order to throw some money at the NPCs.

I miss the "buy clothes" feature - now I have to send my sims in charge of changing the townies' outfits to a community lot to buy all the clothes needed Cry.

Then again, the current version is great to get other outfits without clogging the wardrobe, and you don't have to pay for getting rid of fugly stuff that's being forced on you on aging-up, which is only fair.

Anyway - I'm wondering if the older version could still be used without breaking something?

I read somewhere around here that it IS indeed a feature of the updated hack.

That's all the info I have though.  Undecided

Why not get Numenor's coat rack?  It lets you shop from home.  It is an additional hack, but at least you'll know it's supported?

I've downloaded the coat rack as soon as it was clear that the clothing tool no longer supported buying stuff and would stay that way Cheesy.

This is a new additional tweak, yes. The clothing tool was never really intended as a shopping mechanism, but I can add that functionality back in the next version.

I prefer to do my shopping on Community lots anyway.  More opportunities to meet Sims that don't involve me teleporting them to my home out of frustration.

I would appreciate that. I don't like shopping in RL and don't really bother about taking sims to community lots and going through the long palaver to get them set up. I like to run the clothing tool after they age up, then they pretty much stay in the same outfits until next age up. Except for adults who get a middle-age makeover at some point.

I'd love to get the option back on the clothing tool, too. Although the above mentioned clothing rack is an alternative, I definitively prefer my hacks coming from as few different creators as possible.

Going to be a voice of dissent - liking it the way it is now!

If the buy clothing function returns later, could it possibly come in as a completely separate function to choosing clothes?  So we could perhaps choose clothes and have it work as now, and also buy clothes and collect multiple outfits as required.

I'm just liking the non-clog of wardrobes now!

Weird. I don't get that new feature at all. I can get as many new outfits as I want without loading the clothing tool more than once. Really really weird. I going to look for duplicates, because that has got to be it - I clean out the hack folder regularly before putting in updates these days. Hmmm.

One of the reasons the "new method" came about was because it makes it easier to refit townies and nonresidents, whereas the old system does not work too well for this.

That is the plan. Death to all Nesses.

I just want to say that I really like the way the tool works now, especially the automatic "pick clothing" when the sim grows up and that it is easy to just make any sim selectable and pick clothes for them. Easy and fast.

Oh!  So that's what I'm supposed to do to dress up the townies?  lol  Didn't think of that.   Tongue  One thing that would make it nicer is if it actually said on each page what type of clothing we were picking.  I have a lot of custom clothes that are set as underwear, sleepwear, swimwear, and/or athletic wear, so I have to scroll to the end to see what Maxis stuff is in that current set and know what I'm setting up.  Well, I had do do that until I wrote it down: Everyday, Swimwear, Formal, PJs, Athletic, Undies, Outerwear.   Cheesy

I don't suppose it's possible to make them automatically go to the clothing tool upon aging when they've been told to grow up with one day left, rather than waiting until the end?

I didn't realise at first that it jumped in automatically because I usually age my sims up as soon as I can rather than waiting until they must and the game does it for you.

I can cope if it can't be done, but it would be nice.

Ya know what'd be cool.  A hack that allows you to pick 7 outifts for a sim to wear each day during the week that they'd automagically change into...
