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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Hello all! ^_^

I always thought adult females didn't have proper, everyday looking underwear. The ones in game weren't very appealing and lacked colours. I often saw creations and wanted them as defaults but last night, I decided to do it myself!

HystericalParoxysm has created wonderful, normal looking underwear for our Sims and I though they would be perfect as replacements. With permission, I am able to upload it here! So here they are!



So this will replace the adult female's underwear with the Fanseefem bikini briefs. Since there's 7 undies in game, and HP created 9 colours, 2 were left out (dark blue and green). If you want them, the link will be in the credits.

Additional info: Hp has made a mesh replacement (optional, link in credits) and I fixed the bump mapping issue that caused some weird shading on the Sim, sorry, please redownload! (Should work now! Thanks HP!)

I have tested it with the basegame and it works, so it should work with any game configuration.

To install: Unzip (with WinRAR or 7-Zip), put the file in my documents/eagames/sims2/downloads folder. Uninstall by simply removing the file!

Please do not upload this file anywhere and if someone asks about it, link back to here and HP's thread. That's all I ask. ^_^

Additional Credits:
HystericalParoxysm for the Fanseefem Undies [click here] and letting me upload the defaults, thanks!
Numenor for the AnyGameStarter SimPE MTS2 for hosting so many amazing creations!

To Gao and rayyne, sorry it didn't work but thanks for testing. So I would appreciate it if someone who has this issue to tell me about their game configuration and take a screenshot of the issue please. I'll see what I can do.

But anyway, I would recommend taking them out (mesh replacement and my defaults) then start the game again, see if everything came back to normal, as it should, since my file isn't permanent... Once taken out it doesn't do anything to the game anymore.

EDIT: I have all EPs up to FreeTime and no issues at all... I don't know about Apartment Life though.

Hmm weird... I suspect two things, either it's not compatible with AL or there's a download you have that isn't compatible with mine (causes some conflict).

Well there isn't much I can do beside telling you to take it out, start up the game and see if it came back to the ugly normal maxis undies.

I tried it with the basegame and it worked fine and tried with up to Freetime and it was still fine...

Yeah, the problem was gone when I removed this file... Poor me, stuck with the ugly maxis underwear :-(
Anyway, it was a great idea and you should have credit for it even if it didn't work for everyone!!

That shadowy-light effect is due to bump mapping going weird. In order to fix it, you need to change the format on the bump map that you replaced to Raw 8-bit in SimPE. You'll find that over on the left on the dropdown in Plugin View.

Why is this default replacement package 12 MB? HP's originals are around 72 KB each. I really liked these, but when I sorted all my downloads with Delphy's organizer, yours was by far my biggest file. I have just downloaded the rest of HP's, besides the two you didn't default, which I had already gotten, and I really would prefer having defaults, but not 12 MB for underwear. Sorry

@ marie2sims: Yeah they were quite big because I didn't compress the textures files at all. To be honest I didn't even know you could do that before, haha! I uploaded a new file which is only about 355kb in size when unzipped. So I hope it's small enough now so you enjoy them too! ^_^

Thanks for doing that. I do prefer having these as defaults, and thanks for making the file smaller!

Thanks!! Did you make these underwears for teens too? Because the teen defaults were changed to these underwears as well in my game
