Shorter Ankle Socks

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.
I was bothered by the fact that the game only includes long socks, as I only ever wear ankle socks. The shortest pair of socks is called ankle socks, but they lie. :P

I also thought that my sims look stupid wearing long socks with sneakers and shorts, so I did a basic edit to have a shorter pair of socks. It is only for female sims, as the male sims have a somewhat shorter pair of socks anyway. This does not replace anything.

Here is the default color:



Enjoy!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Seriously, thanks so much. I also only wear ankle socks, especially with shorts I thought those ones the game came with were way too long!

I don't suppose you could be persuaded to make a version for kids, too? I love these socks and use them quite often.

OMG you have no idea how happy I am to see these. I was also bothered by the fact that maxis only made longer socks because I too only wear ankle socks.
