Maxis Outerwear as.... Outerwear! UPDATE: Fixed Uni Bug

Oh Maxis. You put some nice coats in other EPs, then didn't convert them to Outerwear! So I did. Install them all or pick & choose which EPs you want. You'll need Seasons + the EP in the filename - these mods will not unlock the outfits if you don't have the EP they came from. And they are mods, not clothing recolours - note the tiny filesizes.

Hopefully the pictures are self explanatory. They don't show all the outfits but they show most of them. They're just Maxis clothes, you already know what they look like!


Installation Instructions:
You can put these files in your Downloads folder, but if you do, the delete button will be enabled in Body Shop. Do NOT delete them in Body Shop. Doing so may corrupt some of your game files. To remove the outfits from your Outerwear bin, delete my package files from your Downloads folder. If you don't trust yourself to not delete them in Body Shop, make a subfolder in the following location and put the files there instead of in your Downloads folder. This way the delete button will be disabled.

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 YOUR LATEST EP\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins

(or the corresponding folder on your system if your game is not in C:\Program Files)

This issue is a side effect of Maxis enabling the delete button on their own Body Shop downloads, like the soccer clothes. It affects all unlocked clothing made this way and there is currently no other workaround. Big thanks to Cryotank and Jordi for their help finding and resolving the problem.


Jan 4, '08 Update:
Fixed a bug that caused basegame clothes not to show up for Young Adults. Please redownload the "basegame" or "ALL" file if you have Uni. Big thanks to Lord Darcy for his help finding & fixing the issue!

June 25, '07 Update:
H&M Outerwear added. There are 8 for women, 3 for teen girls, and 3 for men.

March 5, '07 Update: Added the University letterman jackets and enabled them for adults. Get the UNI (or ALL) file if you want those. They may not work if you also have Windkeeper's Unlocked University Outfits installed.





Additional Credits:
Huge thanks to the creators of SimPE for making this possible, and to Windkeeper and others who have made similar mods - your work showed me that this type of thing could be done.

ETA: If you're looking for outfits I haven't included, try simsbaby's version at Insimenator. He chose a different selection than I did and has the Holiday Stuff clothes too. I will not be adding any Holiday or Family Fun Stuff items since I don't have those SPs.

ETA 2: Holiday & Family Fun Stuff outerwear now available! Hop on over to knightguy82's thread for Dragons, Kimonos, and Santa Suits, oh my! He's also unlocked the UNI fig leaf outfits for YA through Elders. They're perfect for plantsims.

ETA 3: Apartment Life & Free Time outerwear now available too! Thanks again to knightguy82 for doing those.

Awesome!! I've been waiting for this!!!

But, does this mean that there is a new SimPE? Because the Norwegian translation of the names us ridicoules. Or however it is spelled. The meaning is clear..

Is there a new one?

No, I used the old SimPE. A Seasons version isn't needed for this particular mod.

It always annoyed me that the coats were formal - who eats dinner wearing one? Now my sims can don their fur & go out to dine with an elegant frock underneath.

Thanks Fanseelamb! You're my hero!

To convert custom outfits, open the custom outfit package in SimPE then follow this tutorial starting at Step Twelve.

And thanks guys, I'm glad you find them useful!

No, Rich. Existing recolours have to be converted individually. You can either import/export them with Bodyshop or use SimPE. There's a SimPE tutorial link 2 posts above this one.

I never used the toddler bear outfits before, because I thought they were just silly, but they look so cute playing in the snow in them ^_^.
Oh, and I second the comment about fur coats to step out in.

Thank you so much!

This is probally one of the best hacks I can imagine for this game because considering the need for outerwear they should have done this on their own and not left it up to us normal people as usual. shakes head @ maxis. plus I was waiting for simpe's new version to come out then I was going to manually do just this.

Wow that's really awesome!!! I'm getting ready to install Seasons, so I'll test these out as soon as I get setup.
