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.

Hello. I have just purchased the sims2 university expansion and downloaded this hack over the past weekend. Maybe its not compatible with the other hacks that I have but this totally locked out my sims from "planning" their outfit. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this problem? The error that i got was gosub tree number etc. Thanks

Could you post the error log? That way I can tell which hack the error originated with.

I think thats great! It works well! Only thing was it kind of disabled all my dressers. Is that normal? I only have sims2 (no ep's). I know its in testing, and i really like it. Thank you.

Two in one deal. Saves me space from a dresser and the annoyance of having them walk to it. (:

Modest00, the things that PiratesOfTheSims is describing are the result of an error occuring, if you've had the same thing happen in your game then it's causing errors for you also. If you could attach the error log that resulted from that error to a post it would help me to find out what is causing the problem so I can fix it.

I had it pre-Pets and it worked like a charm. I loved its usefulness. I never had a problem. Will it still work with Pets?

I don't have Pets so I can't test it, but I think it should work ok. If it doesn't work let me know.

I've tried it with UNI, NL and Pets and it works fine with the adults. I haven't tried it with the other ages yet.

I was wondering if this mod allows a toddler to change clothes too? I tried to click on my toddler (using another active sim, then with the toddler as the active sim) but the option didn't appear in the former and no menus appeared in the latter. If not, could someone point me to a mod that does so? I've tried several searches in MTS2 but couldn't find anything.

No it doesn't work on toddlers, and is only available for the active sim. You may find what you're looking for in the wiki.

Thanks! Wow, shows how long I haven't touched this game--completely forgot that you used the changing table to set toddler clothes. >_<

Anyway, I've tested out the updated mod with Adult, Teen and Children (Brandi and her two boys) and it works great. When I was fiddling with Brandi, I didn't see a few options (Grand Vampire, DJ and Gypsy come to mind), but it could be I missed them or she's not suitable for them.

If you need any specific testing for Pets, just holler.

How does this work with Seasons? I imagine, the change to Outerwear won't be available but is the hack functioning okay and harmless?

It appears to be working ok with Seasons, just without the option to change into outerwear. Can't wait until it's updated for Seasons, my Sims keep ending up playing in the snow in their everyday clothes and I wish I could have them change into their outerwear on the spot.

Wow! Thanks, I want to try this new one. Btw, this is a really wonderful creation, it's a lot more convenient to just click on the sims instead of walking miles away to the wardrobe.

It's "gilysse" with a small "g"..

Sorry but I am no longer open for suggestions.

Ok i tried it on an old family and it did not work for toga and just changed into everyday clothes. But then i made a new family and the toga worked. Why is it not working for the old family?

The outwear option appears to be missing for children.

That's not intended, is it?

After more than 16 years of working with PCs using several versions of DOS (from MS-DOS 3.1 over DR-DOS to PTS-DOS), numerous versions of Windows (from 3.0 to XP, excluding ME) and even experimantally OS/2 and Linux, Vista finally did it: It made me buy a Mac!
