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.

It's getting colder out and I STILL hate my outerwear options. My sims are not the type to pull on a puffy parka and walk down the street like some sort of penguin. So what do I do? Go mesh shopping of course! Bodyshop loads and I try to find meshes that don't typically get made into outerwear. I found quite a few in the basegame and a few from the EPs.

I have created Defaults for these outfits. If you download them and install the default package to your downloads folder my versions are what you will see instead. I have also created MoverMods for all of these outfits, since most of them were from Everyday and that won't help the coat shortage any. The Mover package is also included with each Default, but you have to install them in a separate place or you will end up with the CC star on them and make them deletable in game (and corrupt your game in doing so! oh noes!)

You can pick and choose which outfits you want to change and you can also decided whether you want to move them or not, delete any undesirable packages before installing. Maybe you liked what I did to the AL-pointydress by adding tights, but you don't want to move it to Outerwear, then keep only the Default file! Maybe you want to move the HM-daisydress to Outerwear but don't want the tights I added, then keep only the Mover file! So very customizable!

Because you can download and install just the Default files, this does not require Seasons. If you install the Mover mods, to use the clothes you will need Seasons.

Installation Instructions:
Remember the DEFAULT files go in your Downloads and the Movers go here:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Highest Expansion Pack You Have\TSData\Res\Catalog\Skins

If that doesn’t work, try these other two locations instead. C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Highest Expansion Pack You Have\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins or C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Highest Expansion Pack You Have\TSData\Res\StuffPack

You can put the Mover files in your Downloads folder, but if you do, the delete button will be enabled in CAS and Body Shop. They will also not move the clothing and it will all be treated as custom content. Do NOT delete them in CAS or Body Shop. Doing so may corrupt some of your game files. To remove, delete the files themselves from the folder you put them into.
