This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I couldn't believe EA made these nice gloves with one single channel, so I decided to fix that. I made this for my personal use, but I think you'd find useful as I do.
I've changed the mask and made the ribbon texture a little darker, so the bright colors are not too bright.
· These are enabled for teens, young adults, adults and elders, under everyday and formal categories.
· There are two channels now: the glove and the ribbon.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is an amazing and much-needed edit! How do you feel about making such a well-appreciated item? LoL

I use these gloves all the time, and unlike anybody else, I still used them even though there was only 1 channel. I intend to re-download these when they replace the defaults, too saw page 2 of the comments and downloaded the replacement file...? LoL *feels stupid*

thanks. i didn't really think anyone could do this. adding another channel really adds more flexibility in terms of designing your sim's outfit. i really like it.

This is great! I've always wondered why these gloves only came with one channel.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS. From the moment I got the game and saw these gloves had only one channel I was very unhappy! Seriously, I don't even know what EA was thinking... at any rate, thanks for the much-needed fix!!

This is amazing, tysm for making this! I can't believe EA made this awesome glove and then only made it one channel, either!
