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.

Ok, so this is another small set of fixes, and by small I mean both 'not many' and also 'barely noticeable'. I didn't really know what I should fix and what I should leave alone since (I'm assuming) these fashions were based on real designers' work. That may sound like an excuse for not doing more texture replacements, but whatever. I'm around the world's next generation of fashion designers everyday (go art school!), and I wouldn't want to trample their work, so I won't do it here.

These are DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS, meaning, when you place them in your downloads folder, they will act as Maxis clothing, completely replacing their counterparts. This includes sims currently wearing them. If you want to remove mine and return to the maxis versions, just delete my package from your downloads folder. Btw, if you want your clothing catalog images to reflect these changes, delete your thumbnails folder: C:\Documents and Settings\(yourname)\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Thumbnails. The game will generate new ones. If you want not default versions, check out this thread of mine.

The two outfits you see here only got a slight mesh change. The first dress (polkadot??) got made a tad longer. I don't like to see any shorts/skirts/dresses shorter than where my fingertips come down to, so it got made a tad longer. (This was done very carefully so as to not make other patterns look stretched when applied to this mesh, don't worry). The second dress (karin??) got pulled in a tad right above the chest. This dress was rather shapeless and that bothered me. I realized it was supposed to be like that, so I left it mostly shapeless.

This next dress I've heard referred to here on MTS2 as a 'sack dress'! That's terrible! I really liked the jumper and hightops (ok a bit weird, but I'd wear it), but not in it's current circus tent form. This dress got pulled in quite a bit all over, in both fat and fit and adult and teen versions. I believe its wearable now, maybe even kinda cute! These dresses also got a slight texture replacement. The purple and dingy black hightops got thrown out in favor of the clean black pair, and the undershirt and jumpers got very slight coloration changes. The black on the green dress was a bit too black. It started doing that 'black hole' thing that true black does in the game.

The last change was to the sports jackets. The shoulders looked too pooffy, especially on the teen version, so I just thinned that out a bit. I also hated that there wasn't an undershirt on underneath that partially zipped jacket. Do you have any idea how hard it is getting to find decent Maxis shirts to fix all these low-cut issues?


P.S. I like reading. (did you get the hint?)

Additional Credits:
I don't DARE let Sephira near the HM clothes, I don't have enough money to let her so much as even look at any of them. I've told her time and again, if she wants to buy clothes that she doesn't need, she is going to have to get a job. She still is annoyed about losing the argument over her workout clothes, so I didn't want to treat her to modeling the teen versions of these outfits.
