Need help tewaking EAxis clothing
« on: 2009 May 14, 11:03:51 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I fiddle with things; I've hidden, unhidden, re-categorized, age-enabled and otherwise messed with most of the EAxis outfits, and I mostly know what I'm doing.  I keep the modified files in the Overrides folder, not in downloads, but I don't believe that actually makes any difference (my tests show no difference).
The problem is when altering Base Game outfits, they won't work for Young Adults.  I set the age to 48 (which works for all other EP outfits).
I'm pretty sure it has to do with flag/version/product number.
BG outfits do not have a version number, but adding one with simEP is no problem.
If I set flag to 0x00000010, version to 0x00000003 and product to 0x00000000, the clothes show up, but with a CC star (which is unacceptable to by OCD). This is the configuration some of the free maxis downloads use.  Setting the flag right is for some reason essential for correct townification.
TSstore outfits have flag 0x00000000, version 0x00000006, product 0x0000000D, no CC-star (or other EP mark) and do work for YA, but appear in front of all other EPs in the catalogue, not at the end where the base game outfits should go.
I understand that dumping the files in "\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins" or some such like will take away the star, but I'm looking for a way to FIX the problem, not work around it.

Does anyone know how this works?  Or know of a combo that will remove the CC star, keep it in the BG section of the catalogue and enable for YA?
I hope someone at least understand what the hell I'm going on about.

AFAIR, product for Base Game is 0x01.

From what I've seen, it seems that only the last bit matters. Outfits with flag 0x000000X0 are townie-enabled, while outfits with flag 0x000000X8 are townie-disabled.


TSstore outfits have flag 0x00000000, version 0x00000006, product 0x0000000D, no CC-star (or other EP mark) and do work for YA, but appear in front of all other EPs in the catalogue, not at the end where the base game outfits should go.
Now that Store Edition is treated like the newest (and the last) SP for TS2, it makes sense that they appear in front of all other EPs in the catalogue.

No. Unlike objects or OBJD overrides, AFAIK Star of Shame has nothing to do with the location of Property Set overrides. It's about disabling the delete button in the cataloge. If you don't mind the delete button enabled, they work just fine in Downloads folder.

Did I forget to say? Version 0x00000001 and product 0x00000001 removes CC-star, but does not help enable for YA.

This always happens to me, just as I get around to asking, I find something that works.
I don' know how or why it works, but version 0x00000006 and product 0x00000001 seems to do the trick.  Will do more testing.

Actually, any Version higher than 0x02 (Uni & NL) will work for YAs. Just don't use version 0x01.

I don' know how or why it works, but version to 0x00000006 and product 0x00000001 seems to do the trick.
For Base Game outfit overrides, it's better to use version 0x02 or 0x03. There was some incompatibility issue involving "parts" value which was introduced in Pets.
