This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
... now, why did I want these, again? *thinks*

... yep, no idea. I blame American Apparel. (I own a pair of their 70's re-issue running shorts IRL.) But I wanted shorts like those in my game, and quickly found that this "simple" project was exceedingly complicated. Surprise! But I finally managed to get these finished. All morphs except pregnancy are included. Enabled for everyday, sleepwear, swimwear, athletic wear, and random. 2 channels.

These outfits are base-game compatible. All textures/meshes are from in-game items, or hand-drawn. Something to note--because I had to re-locate, re-map, and shrink the texture of the shorts to keep it from overlapping with the skin, the shorts are more blurry in close-ups. They look fine from a distance. Also, you may find that they clip into the thigh a bit on really animated poses/movements. I tried my best to alleviate that, but if it's super-bothersome, please let me know. I can try again.


Polygon Counts:
615--all LODs, adult
551--all LODs, teen
