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.
Ni hao guys.

I didn't like EA made Chinese clothing from World Adventures EP exclusive for Adults and NONE for Children. Iím tired with EAís laziness antics and discrimination towards Children age group, so I converted this Tangzhuang clothing mesh (with in-game title ďMandarinSilkĒ) for Male Child.

The conversion is not 100% the same like the Adult one
Because there were so many edits I made to make it fitting for Child age (due to drastic body difference between Adult and Child), itís like making brand new clothes using EAís mesh.
- Clothing mesh around crotch pants, chest, collar, and shirt on every morph I edited manually to make it fitting for Childís body.
- Bones around collar were assigned manually so the Childís neck wonít protrude against collar (tested on fat Child) and collar texture wonít stretch oddly.
- I reduced the shiny effect by altering the specular so the clothes wonít have shiny plastic feel.
- For TopOnly: I made the bottom part of shirt bigger so when paired with EAís base game & EP pants will not have clipping issues.
- For TopOnly: I altered the UV mapping so the shirt texture wonít overlap with pants & shoes textures when paired together (tested).

TopOnly is shirt only, worn by left model. Outfit is fullbody outfit, worn by right model. Color presets for each clothing using EA's original Adult Mandarin Silk color presets.

Compatibility & Categories:
For male Child.
This mesh is Base Game compatible, no need to have World Adventures EP installed.
Categories: Everyday & Formal & Outerwear. Not valid for random.

TopOnly = 3
Outfit = 4

Polygon Counts:

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.
