Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


2008-09-04: Updated to v1.01. Male unitard was enabled for YAs as well.


******************


Ever wondered why that cute pink unitard with legwarmers is gone from your game after installing FT patch? No ballet tutu, no female dance outfit with a ring on the shoulder?

If you applied FreeTime patch, FreeTime career outfits are no longer available in CAS and buy catalog. You cannot buy these outfits at shops anymore. They are now inaccessible, unless you're creating fresh Sims in CAS with debug mode on.
Furthermore, as of FreeTime, all career outfits (not just FT ones) are no longer added to family wardrobe when a Sim gets a new job or a promotion, a throwback to base game days. This is true even for unpatched game.

Seems that a lot of people who applied FT patch miss FT career outfits that were once available in CAS and clothing stores. By popular demand, I made this FT career outfit unlocker.

What is unlocked:
  • All FreeTime career outfits
  • PlantSim Leafy Clothing (not Fig Leaf outfit)
  • Food Judge outfits

I changed the category of World Class Ballet Dancer outfits from Everyday Only to Everyday/Gym. It's stupid to have this outfit only in Everyday, when Sims cannot perform ballet in Everyday outfit!
Also changed category of wetsuits from Everyday Only to Everyday/Swimwear. There are actually two identical copies of wetsuits, but I activated only one of them. If you already bought the other one from store before you applied patch, you may find duplicate copies in some family wardrobes.

Most of career outfits are flagged with 0x08, meaning that townies will not be spawned dressed in these outfits. It's silly to have townies flocking to treadmills in community gyms garbed in ballet tutu, after all. Only unitards and track dancer outfits are enabled for townies.

If other clothing unlocker/hider/recategorize mods change these outfits, this unlocker will not be compatible with them.

This unlocker does NOT enable career outfits to be automatically added to family wardrobe when a Sim gets a new job or a promotion. You have to get my other fix to get this pre-FT feature back:
Career Outfits are Added to Wardrobe Again in FreeTime


Installation:

You can put this unlocker in your Downloads folder as usual, but please be aware that delete button for career outfits may be enabled in Body Shop or CAS. You might accidentally delete it.

If you want to disable the delete button completely, put the file in here:

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 <YOUR LATEST EP>\TSData\Res\Catalog\Skins

(or the corresponding folder on your system if your game isn't installed in C:\Program Files)

E.g. if your latest EP is Mansion & Garden Stuff, the location will be like this:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion & Garden Stuff\TSData\Res\Catalog\Skins


Files are loaded in alphabetical order, the last loaded overriding the ones loaded earlier.

If you want to keep the fix in \Skins folder, DO NOT remove z- prefix from the file name. It's there to ensure that the fix is loaded after Skins.package, overriding original Property Set.

If you want to make a subfolder for your fixes/hiders/unlockers under \Skins folder, name the subfolder as something like z_Fixes, so that files in the subfolder load after Skins.package.


Changelog:

v1.0: Initial release.
v1.01: Male unitard was enabled for YAs. (2008/09/04)

Thanks LD Just wondering what you mean by "Leafy Clothing"? The plantsim clothes or the fig leaves? I have both those unlocked in my own game so I want to know if I need to get rid of mine so they don't conflict.

edit: nvmd checked the game saw it was plantsim outfit

lately there have been so many "little" annoying things about the game that keep getting worse with each expansion pack. Without all your little tweaks and fixes, I'm not sure I would keep playing... or spending money on their shoddy EPs! Would that I could send *you* my $19.99 instead of them!

I'd rather not, as Genie outfit doesn't appear even in CAS debug mode. Tinkering with creature-only outfits is not the wisest thing to do. The unlocked PlantSim outfits are different, they are identical copies of real PlantSim outfits which are included in Seasons. FT version of PlantSims outfits are just normal clothes so they are safe to unlock.

God, EAxis just gives me a headache anymore, so many community fixes for the game and then others to fix what the official patches "Fixed".

I just want to say thank you Lord Darcy for all you have done to help make our game work correctly. Thank you.

I hadn't even noticed that the leg warmer outfit wasn't in stores until I read this. But then I have so many cc adult female outfits, I'm not surprised! Thanks, I'm sure I would have missed them eventually and then thought that *I* had borked my game

This is phantastic, Lord Darcy!
But this made me think about career outfits in general - does anyone know if there is a mod that unlocks *every* career outfit?

Thank you ~ I fell in love with the female version of the outfit when I first saw it, then was disappointed to find it was only in Everyday; yet, the pink leotard with the leg warmers (which looks very athletic), was categorized in both Everyday and Athletic.
