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.
This is a collection of 3 Tees that work for Young Adult and Adult males, made with the Beta release of Delphy's CAS Texture Unitool. This means that the t-shirt decals are stencil overlays, meaning you can add whatever pattern or color you like in the background.

They are a new set of shirts, which appear under everyday, sleepwear and Athletic.

Note:

Decals will stretch or retract somewhat depending on the weight of your sim. This means that if you have an extremely waif-like sim or an extremely husky one there might be slight decal distortion/squishing.

Enjoy!

Additional Credits:
Thanks a million to Delphy for putting together this editing program, and so many others!

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.

Great job! My only suggestion is that you should make the writing on the t-shirts be in Simlish if you're planning to make more like these. It really keeps up the atmosphere of the game that way.

SimMale made some Simlish fonts here:

If you don't prefer that style there's another kind here:

Wait you did this with the pattern maker? I see the decal button, but am clueless how to make a stencil with it. Will you make a tutorial?

Very awesome, btw. I plan to make some custom shirts (all in Simlish) for my sim band I'm making.

Currently theres a small bug in the CTU program which stops the main female tee from being exported properly, but theres an update looming so I'll get on it when it arrives!

The Alpha layer is a bit of a headache, especially because its not linked in with the other layers. This is how I'm doing it for this type of CTU decal pattern:

1. Cut around picture (perfectly, best done with images like this where you can completely remove the background)
2. paste it and position it where i want on the main .dds file RGB channel but DONT merge the layer yet
3. duplicate that image (right click, duplicate in photoshop)
4. On the duplicated image first make the background black (i just hit control + u to get the hue and saturation bar up and drag the lightness down to the bottom so its all black)
5. On the duplicated image still right click the decal layer, go to blending options and do color fill (to white)
6. Merge this. Now you have a perfectly positioned and selected alpha layer in this duplicated image, so just copy and paste it onto the alpha layer of your picture

and your done! hope that made sense! If not just feel free to PM me with questions

This was done with the CTU, which is a beta program located here. It works a bit more like the old sims CAS. I'm thinking of making a full tute with pics, but I might wait till a later beta release of the program

Aw glad you like it! Lucky for you i actually cropped it out of a wallpaper I made I've pm'ed it to you but i'll include it in here as well in case anyone wants it. The only rule is don't claim it as your own and perhaps give me a shout (and PM) if you want to share it anywhere!) http://imgur.com/Fc95y.jpg (caution, massiveness)
