Seasons Compatible

Update 03-28-07
Fixed a problem that was preventing children from having the Change Into Outerwear option.

Update 03-19-07
Added option to change into outerwear, this option will only be available if you have Seasons installed but doesn't effect compatibility for those who don't have Seasons and this hack should still work regardless of which EPs you have installed.

Update 01-01-07
-The current outfit a sim is wearing no longer appears in the Change Into options. Example: If a sim is currently wearing formal then the Change Into.../Formal option will not appear.
-Fixed it so that a sim can now change directly from their work clothes/school uniform to Everday.
-Added an option to change into Work Clothes. Note: The sim must have a job and there must be an outfit associated with the current job level for this option to show up.
-Added an option to change into School Uniform. Note: The sim must be in private school for this option to appear and is available for children and teens.
-Added an option to change into a Toga. I also altered the age data associated with the Toga so that now sims ages teen to elder can wear togas where previously only YAs were able to.
-Added an option to change into the Secret Society outfit. This option is only available to sims who are members of the Secret Society and is available for YAs, adults and elders.
-And finally I have added a Change Into/Special option which should be great for costume parties and moviemaking since it allows you to change into the various NPC outfits that are available in the game.

The following is a list of the Special outfits that are available. Please note that certain outfits require that either Uni or NL be installed and not all outfits will show up for different ages or genders. Also the Special outfits option is only available for teens and up.
  • Gardener
  • Barista
  • Burglar
  • Cheerleader - I modified this so that it will show up for teen through elder and all female sims, not just YAs, will actually change into the cheeleader outfit and not the mascot outfit.
  • Chinese Delivery Person
  • Coach
  • Cop
  • Delivery Person
  • Evil Mascot
  • Firefighter
  • Handyman
  • Lunchserver
  • Maid
  • Mailman
  • Nanny
  • Pizza Delivery Person
  • Professor
  • Repoman
  • Grim Reaper
  • Social Bunny - All three colors.
  • Paramedic
  • Bartender
  • Bus Driver
  • Exterminator
  • Headmaster
  • Paperboy - Only available for teens
  • Salesperson
  • Graduation Gown - I altered the age data so that it can also be worn by adults and elders.
  • Mrs. Crumplebottom - I altered the age data so that adults can also wear her outfit.
  • Diva and Mr. Big
  • Slob
  • Chef
  • Server
  • Host
  • DJ
  • Grand Vampyre
  • Gypsy - I altered the age data so that teens - elder can wear her outfit.

Tired of having to always go to the dresser to change clothes?

This will enable you to change the active sim's clothes by clicking on them and selecting the outfit you want then to change into from the Change Into Pie Menu.

Uses a social plugin controller with an unique GUID, so it doesn't
overwrite or change the behavior of other objects.


Update 07/04/06
Fixed a problem where a bhav was set to a format that would cause a Bad gosub tree number error.

If you've received this error or have had problems since installing this hack then redownload and overwrite the old file with the new one.

Those who have NL shouldn't be effected.

Update 07/16/06
Compatibility with OFB has been confirmed. Thanks to everyone who has tested it out, and your feedback is appreciated.

l stand by what l said. It is rude to say to someone's hard work, a comment such as "oh you can just do that with boolprop" i.e. It is like saying: what you did is no big deal. If you felt insulted how do you think the modder felt? if I don't need or care for a particular mod. I just don't use it. I don't need to make comments.

I don't have OFB so I don't know what method if any it uses to see if a clothes change is allowed. I looked at the "community lot change clothes hack" you referred to, but it just makes dressers usable on community lots. Since mine bypasses the dresser altogether that wouldn't be causing a conflict. It's possible though that OFB imposed other clothing change restrictions that may be causing the problem. Are you able to change clothes on residential lots?

well, i pulled out all of my mods that might have conflicted with it and i still don't know what the problem is. but when i click on them and tell them to change, it goes into their queue for a sec, they look at me and it drops out and they don't change. i just don't know what is causing the problem.

I just have to assume that it's not compatible with OFB. I'm sorry for any inconvenience it has caused you.

I have all the expansion packs except the holiday pack, and I have found that this hack works correctly. With one exception, when my Sims are in their work clothes they will not change into everyday, and I get the same problem as described. I usually change them into something else, then I change them into everyday. So I was wondering are your Sims also in their work clothes.

Everything in this mod is private to this mod therefore it shouldn't overide anything else in the game. Also in my game the dressers still have the Plan Outfit option available. I wish I new what is causing it not to work in your game. Did your dressers return to normal after you removed it?

#61 Old 14th Jul 2006 at 6:39 PM
ok, they were wearing work clothes, i think, but as i recall, i may be wrong, i've slept and smoked a few since then, but anyhow, i think i tried to change a couple out of work clothes and into formals for a date or was it a party, anyhow, i don't have it installed right now, but i can put it back in and see if trying to change them into say their undies first and then into everyday will help. the only ep or extras i do not have is family fun (and i really don't think i'll be getting it either, lol), i have all others though.

p.s. as far as trying to change on a community lot, i am not sure i even tried that, so i'll try that too and see what it does there.

p.s.s. i think that i was also trying to change teens and/or children out of school uniforms into everyday clothing as well. but i'm going to get it reinstalled and see what happens.

Yes it did go back, I actually didn't remove it, i disabled it, and it went back.

#63 Old 15th Jul 2006 at 5:39 AM
ok, i put it back in and went in to play and it did work as long as i changed into something else before i changed into formal from work. I was able to change clothes on a community lot as well. so the only issue is that you must change into something besides everyday clothing from work clothing then change into everyday clothing.

Thank you for the download but, one question: I have OFB, and NL, but I need to know if you've confirmed that it is/isn't compatible with OFB. I have already put it in my downloads folder, but I will easily remove it if you are unsure.

In the general change clothes interaction work clothes and everyday have the same value, so when you have work clothes on it thinks you have everyday so it doesn't do anything, the same as if you were wearing pajamas and selected change into pajamas. The dressers however use a different, more complicated approach for testing to see if you're wearing work clothes or everyday, and I haven't been able to fully understand the code yet, but maybe in time I will.

Go ahead and test it out if it doesn't work then you can always remove it. I need people who have OFB to test it out since I haven't got OFB. Post back and let me know if it worked or not.

Good news! It is compatible with OFB. I tried it this morning and it worked. Thank you for the new interaction.

ok well, i've been using it more and more, but i still haven't had a child or teen use the option. i think i got an elder to use it and i have been using it with adults and young adults, so that i can say that it will work with all versions of the game. i cannot, however, tell you how well it works with family fun, i don't have it. i would say post a warning in yer main post about needing to change into something other than everyday clothing when wearing work clothing. then to change into everyday clothing. and mention that it appears to be compatible with all versions cause i can use it, lol.

Yes! Especially when they can change into their swimwear or work clothes on the spot, but for everything else they need to go to the dresser :mad:

Thanks for this

To remove just delete the Smonaff_ChangeClothesPieMenu.package file from the downloads folder. This hack is not a global mod, but a social plugin and should not effect dressers an any way. If you still continue to have the problem after removing, look for other hacks that may be causing a conflict. If you post an error log I'll have a look at it and see if I can figure out what is causing the problem.
