Pregnancy morphs added to six game clothes - updated 8/9/10

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.
The choice of maternity wear included in the game is limited at best, so here's six items of game clothing enabled and morphed for pregnancy. These are all for Adult/Young Adult females. Included are:

T-shirt (Everyday, Sleepwear, Athletic)
V-neck sweater (Everyday)
Capri pants (Everyday, Athletic)
Fitted skirt (Everyday, Formal)
Sleep shirt (Sleepwear)
Short flared dress (Everyday, Formal)

Please note:

Although these are game clothing, they will show in CAS as additional items with their own custom thumbnails indicating they are enabled for maternity. Unfortunately I couldn't find any way to simply add pregnancy to the in-game clothing and be able to choose them or even have them used randomly more than once in a blue moon, so these are basically custom clothes using the same in-game base meshes with different designs and an added pregnant morph.

They're fully plan-able, meaning if you have the sim wear these items before becoming pregnant she will continue to wear them.

Updated 8/9/10 to conform to the standard EA top and bottom pregnant shape. If you have problems with gapping between the skirt or Capri pants and other CC maternity wear that's bare midriff or tight at the waist, this should fix it.

If you don't already have it, it would be a good idea to grab my fix for the game maternity jeans, since without it they'll look pretty funny with the t-shirt or sweater. (This has also been updated to the standard shape on 8/9/10): http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=371019

Are these compatible with WA/Ambitions/Late Night/XXX expansion?
Almost certainly, yes. Unless the basic way the game handles morphs changes, there's no reason they wouldn't be compatible. Please try it, find out, and don't ask unless there's a problem. Sorry, but I'm getting VERY tired of seeing the same question on every morph-related mod I've done every time a patch or expansion comes out.

Polygon Counts:
These are only morphs added to game meshes, so there are no additional poly counts.

Additional Credits:
Wes H. for his Milkshape plugins
Delphy for CTU P.L. Jones for S3PE ** Update 7/14/2010

Wouldn't you know it, if you have Ambitions installed the new custom content symbol is right on top of the pregnant symbol I used to mark the thumbnails for this clothing. I've updated the package so the thumbnails have the pregnant symbol on the other side.

** Update 8/9/2010

Uploaded a new version that conforms to the EA standard top and bottom pregnant shape. This should fix problems with gapping between these and other CC maternity wear.

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.

This is really great. We needed this so bad. Shame on EA for leaving it to people like you who make stuff. Thanks!

RIP Liono my sweet kitty. You will be forever missed.

More maternity clothing is so badly needed, I really appreciate your work. And thanks for going the extra step to make a custom thumbnail, that really helps a lot!

Thank you so much! It's so boring to see the Sim moms always in the same clothing! Most I hate the "formal" dress, that looks like a nightwear (nightmare).

Thanks, so tired of that fugly dress and that same old shirt and pants. Not sure there would be as many women in this country if all mothers had to wear ugly maternity clothes like that.

I am having problems getting this mod to work for me. I have re-done all the mod/packages things so that its in Documents now, and deleted my old cache files, yet when I play the game I don't get the option for these clothes in CAS. I have no idea what I am doing wrong and desperately need help.

#23 Old 14th Jul 2010 at 8:36 AM
I have the clothes in my CAS, but when my sims get pregnant they default to the Maxis outfits, even if I already have the outfit set as one of their preset ones. How do you get your sims to wear your maternity clothes? I love them and want to use them.

Fredthelog: Do you have other custom content working in your game? If not, your setup is probably not correct. Check that you have a Resource.cfg in your Mods folder.

tibby13: Are you sure you're using my set, not the default EA clothes? Did you choose the ones with the pregnant symbol on the thumbnail? Unfortunately the Ambitions CC symbol is right on top of the pregnant symbol I made - I'm uploading a fix. If it's not that, I really don't know why they wouldn't work in your game.

Yes, I do have the Resource.cfg in my mods folder. But I don't have any other custom content on the main game. Ive went through the mod setup instructions like 4 times and I can't figure out what I am missing.
