Graduation Party's Clothing Mod
(better dress code for grad parties)

This mod is an improvement for graduation parties and modify the way other sims will dress for the party.

2013/12/18 : /!\ Update for InTeenimater users. Please download the "InTeen" version of my mod for compatibility. Place it in the same folder, where InTeenimater files are, and make sure my mod loads after InTeenimater_B.package (sort files alphabetically). More details in the compatibility notes below.

I've always been annoyed by the fact that the sim who throw a graduation party is the only one who could wear an academic dress...

Throw a graduation party...


...no more of these casual clothes please !

Other post-graduated students living in the lot -or invited as guests- should also wear academic dresses during such a big event! This is better for group pictures

So I made this mod to push other sims to dress up properly :
- Every student who already got his diploma will wear the academic dress.
- Other students or guests will dress in formal clothes.

Due to the game mechanic, some sims may take more time than others to change clothes. It's normal, be patient. Wait until the "party score" starts to be displayed.

The students who wear an academic dress receive a hygiene boost, because I hate when stupid sims change in academic dress and right after decide to take a shower... and definitively loose their outfit. The same applies to toga parties.

At the end of the grad party, only the sim who threw the party will go back to his neighborhood. Nothing changes here.

You must have University expansion pack installed.

Installation :
Choose only one file, the second one is for InTeenimater users.
Place the file in your Downloads folder, or a subfolder.
InTeen users please read the compatibility notes below.

Compatibility :
This mod is compatible with JM Pescado's "togafix" (MATY)
I made it compatible with Twojeffs "visitor controller" (Simbology). For some reason the visitor controller doesn't allow visitors to dress directly in special outfit when they come to the lot if they are post-graduated students. So they will come to your lot in casual clothes, and change clothes once the party started.
It is also compatible with outfit changing signs (Simlogical). Just remember to disable the sign when you throw a graduation party, because the academic dress is in the casual category and would be lost.
This fix might conflict with other mods that are modifying the way a sim throw parties and dress for graduation or toga party.
If you have a doubt, you can check with Paladin's HCDU (Hack Conflict Detection Utility).
/!\ For InTeenimater users : Please download the "InTeen" version of my mod for compatibility. Place it in the same folder, where InTeenimater files are, and make sure my mod loads after InTeenimater_B.package (sort files alphabetically). There is a minor conflict because it is the same controller that makes sims go on honeymoon and dress for parties. So if you want your teens to go on honeymoon after wedding, use this version. The HCDU will still report a conflict between the two mods, but it's normal, don't worry. It should work fine as long as my mod loads last.

Policy :
Please don't upload this mod on other websites. Provide a link to this thread instead.
You can include or modify this fix in one of your own mods, as long as you give proper credits and a link to this page.
