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.

Update: New versions added! See below for pics. - Mar. 9, 2008

These 'boxers' had been on my list since I tackled the ugly Men's Swim Trunks. There were right next to each other in SimPE, so I couldn't help seeing them and remembering how terrible they are. After some thinking, I decided that no, we don't need silk boxers (thats the name Maxis gave them). I decided that flannel would be a good replacement, some of my favorite jammies are plaid flannel (though not boxers, ... thinking about it, maybe flannel was a odd choice too). Anyways, maybe we can go with they are faded plaid cotton, that would make more sense. Whatever, doesn't matter. All that matters is that they now look good enough to use again, did I pull that off? I hope so. If boxers aren't your thing (or even if they are), make sure to get my Briefs Replacement Set.

If you find that you like them enough to want them as PJs as well, I included a .rar that does just that. That file goes in your Bins folder, if you aren't familar with it by now though these sets of mine, you haven't been paying attention. It goes here: C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Bon Voyage\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins (or whichever is your highest expansion pack folder). You can put these files in your Downloads folder, but if you do, the delete button will be enabled in CAS and Body Shop. Do NOT delete them in CAS or Body Shop. Doing so may corrupt some of your game files. To remove the outfits from your Sleepwear bin, delete the package file from where you installed them.

Ok, enough out of me, have some pics:


I brightened up the plaid a bit and made the waistband darker. Not too much of a difference, but I found I still wasn't using these as much as I could have been. Since I still didn't like them, I fixed them again. Here they are, I'm leaving the old ones up in case you like those better.


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.

BTW, I've got more default replacements, check them out here !

Enjoy!
