This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
There have been a lot of great conversion meshes uploaded recently that come with the original Maxis textures as recolours -- perfect for people who don't have the EPs they're converted from, but for those who do it results in a lot of duplicate textures. My poor old computer can't handle a lot of custom content, so I made a couple of edits that reference the in-game textures directly instead of using separate recolours. They only weigh 1-2k each, as opposed to 200-800k.

This is part 2 of 2, with edits that require Freetime (see part 1 for Base Game, OfB, and Seasons stuff). All of the original Maxis colours included, except for tfbodyuberfamily, that's only the 4 dresses without aprons.

Files below are for the following meshes -- polygon counts I've copied from the original threads:

cloudlessnights - AF_FTConversionsSkirtStockings (TF->AF conversion of vest+skirt)
Vertices: 2044, Faces: 2436
cloudlessnights - AM_FTConversionsTech (TM->AM conversion of vest+jeans)
Vertices: 1626, Faces: 2122

migamoo - tfbodyexercise (AF->TF conversion of gymwear)
2558, 1875
migamoo - tfbodysporty (AF->TF conversion of gymwear)
2314, 1779
migamoo - tfbodyunitard (AF->TF conversion of gymwear)
2572, 2066
migamoo - tfbodytrackdance (AF->TF conversion of gymwear)
2578, 1921

migamoo - tfbodyuberfamily (AF->TF conversion of long dress)
2468, 1782
migamoo - tmbodycomfy (AM->TM conversion of shirt+shorts)
2362, 1806
migamoo - afbodycomfy (TF->AF conversion of shirt+shorts)
2296, 1770

Meshes are included with all of the downloads.

I've also thrown in two hidden recolours for the adult "bodysporty" mesh ( -- that's the green/pink and brown/blue versions versions of the tank top + long pants gymwear, not pictured but they look exactly like the teen ones. They don't need a separate mesh.

You can do what you want with this. Please link back to this thread when redistributing. Please respect that I don't do requests.

Additional Credits:
Thanks to cloudlessnights and migamoo for making the meshes, and to Phaenoh for her recent conversions which helped me figure this out.

Haha! I was planning on doing this myself, but so far I've been too lazy. Now I can just continue to sit on my big butt.

Did you remove the CC star too? Thats always my biggest petpeeve about Maxis age conversions. Totally make my day if you did, but if not thats easy enough for me to fix for myself. THANKS!

No, I didn't remove the CC star -- I actually quite like that it's there, after all these things do need a custom mesh .. it's a matter of personal preference I guess =)

Many thanks for that, this really helps to shrink my downloads folder!

But I noticed one small thing. While the AF-FTConversionsSkirtStockings appear fine for YAs and Adults the afBodyComfy is usable only by Adults...

baerchen, thanks for letting me know =) I've only just realised that I can actually change this in the recolour. I don't have Uni, so I didn't notice.

I can't put anything big in my downloads folder anymore since my computer is really slow. I would have loved to have the workout outfits for my teengirls, but Migamo took the links away :-( Thank you anyway, Plasticbox - it is great idea!
