How to recategorize clothing: top/bottom/full outfit

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

A query:

Does anyone know how to recategorize custom clothing in the top/bottom/full outfit category? I have some downloaded clothing that appears all right on the Sims themselves, but is borked in the CAS clothing display. I checked the packages in the Wardrobe Wrangler, and they're the only ones that aren't categorized as such. This is a read only field in WW, so if I change it it has to be through the advanced tab, unless there's a different tool that does it more easily. I don't have SimPE, but I will dowload it if I need it.

I was hoping that someone knows which of the attributes needs to be changed, and what the values are. Otherwise, I go through everything by trial and error, which could take a while.

Try dragging the contents of your Thumbnails folder to a safe place on your hard drive.  The game will (slowly) regenerate them, and CAS should look ok again.

The reason why you can't recatagorize tops and bottoms is because the game has no provision to use them as Formals, etc.  They're everyday clothing only.

Why drag them somewhere to keep them? They regenerate, just delete them. Keeping those would kind of be like keeping a copy of the .cache file that you are about the delete.
The catalog will be a little slower the first time going through it after deleting the thumbnails. You could also use Ctrl and right click on the pictures to regenerate a thumbnail.

One day in college I was feeling very stupid. So I drove with Ben down to Maitland and toured EA Tiburon for an hour as an 'honorary intern'. I left feeling MUCH smarter. I recommend the experience to everyone.  -this is a quote from an Ex-boyfriend of mine..

Better still, delete the thumbnails folder- that way the game just fetches a copy from the install files, so you don't have to wait for all of the Maxis thumbs to regenerate- just your CC.

On the odd chance that it's something causing the game to crash before it gets around to reading the thumbnails, you can put them back and try something else independently.  I rename the cache files too, instead of deleting them.

Thanks!  I'll recommend people drag out the whole Thumbnails folder instead of just the contents.

There's no reason to re-place them.  If a problem that existed before dragging them out still existed, the game will have already regenned new ones, and you'll just be replacing them with older ones.  Delete them altogether.
