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.
Since there is no pregnancy morph for men as of yet, the easiest way to avoid floaty head syndrome when your male sims get preggers is to enable maternity on them.

I did these for myself, so I figured I would share them so that you can be lazy and not have to do it yourself. I used Delphy's CAS Texture Unitool to enable the 'maternity' option on these clothes. I have tested it in game for several days with no problems at all.

I labeled them all fairly clearly, so feel free to pick and choose which ones you want or keep them all. I initially only had the PJ's for teens and Adults enabled in game, which worked out great. It made it obvious when they were pregnant because they would just switch to that outfit. The problem was I didn't make it enabled for All categories; so when my insane sim decided he wanted to wear formal clothes while playing with the sprinkler ( ) I got the floaty head syndrome.
I personally do not like making something available to all categories, so I instead just made sure I had clothing for each category enabled so that I didn't have to worry about that. But if you want to have the 1 outfit thing going for you, feel free to change it with Delphy's tool.

Bad case of insomnia so forgive me for my horrid run-on sentances I think my insane sims are rubbing off on me.

They seem to randomly choose which outfits for each category will be their maternity clothes if you have more than 1 type for each category. Every one of my sims always chose different outfits from the others, but that is because i have everything with maternity enabled; not a select few.


** Also Sorry for the horrible quality of the pictures, I forgot to put everything back on high settings, which prompts me to restart the game, which I am too exhausted to do.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Easiest way:
Get Delphy's TS3 Install Helper Monkey if you don't already have it
and just right click the files, or double click them; whichever you prefer.

**Also make sure you delete your cache files located in your ..My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\
ie: CASPartCache,simCompositorCache

**If you already have existing floaty head sims, just click your sim and select 'choose outfit' then select whichever outfit you would like from there.

Hope these will be of some use to others

Additional Credits:
Delphy for her awesome tools
Balloon_Head for making the female clothes
Lostaccount/Darkpool for her woohoo mod which finally let my gay sims procreate!

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.

I'm pretty sure the answer to that is No.
They just simply get into PJs and walk around thinking about being pregnant ^^

ok, is this for the people who have the mod or is it for just in case your male sims get preggers, because i read on the sims3 forum before that mod had came out that they were getting the floaty headed preg male sims.

It doesn't matter if you have any type of woohoo mod or not. If a male sim gets preggers this will allow him to have 'maternity' clothes. This will not conflict with any mod as it has only enabled the maternity option on the clothes.

And unfortunately, until we figure out how to add morphs, they'll have no bellies But I'd rather that than floaty heads.. that is just creepy hehe

I don't know if it was my computer or this but it may have caused my game to freeze. It may just be too many files.

I can confirm that male sims can get preggers without any Mods. I have a family that I put into my neighborhood just to have a gay couple in it, and one of the guys ended up having two kids autonomously. (Floaty head and all). So, thanks for this, it'll come in handy!!

You don't have to keep all of the files. I'd recommend picking 1 for each category (athletic,sleepwear, etc) if you don't want to have them all enabled.
Also make sure you delete your caches, that could have been the cause of your freezing.

Do they still have the floaty head when they are nude? Like when taking a shower or bath? Great Mod! Thanks.

I enabled maternity for nude as well, as you can see in the list above. If you are selectively choosing which clothing to keep, make sure you keep the nude ones as well
Lab Assistant
#17 Old 10th Jul 2009 at 4:56 AM
Awesome! I saw the nude file. I was just making sure I wasn't dreaming. ;P Do you think you can make a patch for Becs? As hers still has the floating head in the shower. Unless that's a different process. Thanks again!

Look in your "My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\" folder and delete anything called Cache. The main one seems to be: simCompositorCache, but I delete them all just incase The game re-generates them so it doesn't cause any problem

I noticed that when my adult male sim, who's not pregnant gets into the shower or tub he has swim trunks on. He is not a never nude, and his skin looks funny, shaded. I thought that maybe it was because I had the male genital mod, but I took it out and it still happens. I also deleted all of the caches.
