A little mod I made earlier today that will enable all the custom outfits in CAS, Bodyshop, and clothing rack in game. Available for every age group from toddler to elder, including young adult. Including ALL 6 textures for each outfit, so if you download all of them, you'll have 48 new outfits (6 each)

All of them will show up as everyday clothes, except for the child and toddler ones that will also appear as PJs.

They have FreeTime icon instead of the custom content star, but the delete button is NOT disabled. Do not delete them as you may corrupt your game files by doing so.

You do need FreeTime EP for them to show up. Have a nice day and Happy Easter! :D

Thanks you so much for doing this I wasn't even aware there were locked sewing machine clothes beyond the H&M ones. Would putting these in the Program files folders instead of the downloads make them un-deletable? If yes which folder could we put them in?

Tasha, the usual folder is "Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 YOUR LATEST EP\TSData\Res\Catalog\Skins". You could try them there, they'd probably work. Although it shouldn't be too hard to avoid deleting them since they do have the FT icon.

Thanks a bunch for these, treeag! I love unlocked Maxis stuff.

Besides, it would probably mess things up making them un-deletable

for the female teen the clothes stick to a certain skin so u can clearly notice the difference of skin tones when the sims wear those dresses

I'm aware of that problem and I've fixed it before I uploaded this mod.

in my game I'm still getting the different skin tone thing. Picture linked. Could this mod be in conflict with anything else?

It's not my mod, it's a bug from EA/Maxis. Do you happen to have any custom/default replacement skintone by any chance?

I posted the fix for people who have the problem here last week.

yes I have the nude/detailed default replacement skintones but they are identical to EAxis skin tones simply with detail. Is that the problem and will the fix you posted still work with default replacements?

Edit: That worked! Thank you so much! I remember seeing that mod but I didn't remember if it was here or not! LOL. Wonder why it did that? Thanks again!

Does anyone know if this method works for these outfits? I know in another one of your threads (Unlocked H&M Outfits), it didn't work so I'm guessing it would be the same in this case, but I figured there was no harm in asking.

ooh, why did you have to use the corresponding shoes in the teen girl ones, green shoes on a pink dress, eww

Edit: At about half midnight last night I realised I can change the shoes with body shop and a simple cut and paste (duh)
