This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

More of my Pajama obsession. this time for teens!

12/01/07: Having problems with the male mesh? See my post here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showpost...89&postcount=44

2/26- I added a zip of all the male pjs and one for all of the females, so you can get them ala carte or in bulk

And because it's a popular question: If you want to Know where I got the skintones See my answer here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthre...167#post1587167


These were made with a Patched Vesrion of Pets Bodyshop and should work with all versions of the game. The girls' pjs use the wonderful mesh by Kate at Parsimonious which is included in the zips. The boys' pjs use a mesh by me, which is also included in the zips (see mesh details and TOS below)

The Girls


From Left to Right: Black Tank with Red Plaid Pants, Purple Tank with Purple Sleeping Kitties Pants, and Blue Tank with Colorful Kitties Pants


From Left to Right: Light Gray Tank with Blue Stars Pants, "My Chemical Romance" Tank with Red Plaid Pants, and Pink Tank with Butterflies Pants

The Guys


From Left to Right: Red Plaid Pants, Green Plaid Pants, Gray Striped Pants, Green Striped Pants


From Left to Right: Blue Plaid Pants, Red Sweats and Blue Checked Pants

Mesh Details
This mesh has been posted elsewhere before, and used without problems, but because it's new to MTS2, I'm including the usual details.

The Mesh was made in Milkshape, using WesH's plugins and Demon's Tools, and it was extracted and put into the game using SimPe. All thanks to Tiggerypum; without her wonderful tutorials I would never have had the courage to try my hand at moving around vertices and chopping up meshes.

This mesh has 1916 Faces and 1310 Vertices, and is bump map enabled.

Recolor Policy
* You can freely retexture this mesh, but please do not use my textures in your recolors. You can use my alphas if you wish.

* If you recolor to post on MTS2 please just link back to this thread for the mesh.

* If you post elsewhere you may include my mesh in your zips with credit to me and a link on the page with your recolors

* If you do recolor. Please, please, please let me know by sending a quick pm, because I would love to hear about it and see your creations! This would make me very very happy .

Thanks for looking and enjoy. If you find a use for this, thanks and comments are appreciated more than you know

The good news is I think I figured out the issue. I'm guessing the problem happened either when you first installed it or the mesh worked normally and broke after you put in some new clothes?

If so, it happened because of something silly I did when I made the original mesh (It was one of my first ever), and it shouldn't bother most people but I suspect you hit one of the rare conflicting combinations. Because the problem isn't common, I never noticed it and no one ever said anything about it. I only discovered the problem when I did some poking after your comment. I'm working on a fix now and should have something by tommorrow or Monday.

Yeah, they were working fine before... Then I installed something new.
Well that is great news; I guess I'll just delete them for now or something and re-install when it's updated. =)

The girl with the dark red hair has skin by Barcelonista, though I can't seem to find the link just now








Thank you so much for the PJ's they are exactly what I needed.

I am also a skin addict, would I be able to get away with asking you to DL, those sims24ever skins to me?

I have been looking for something like them FOREVER, and have not been able to find them, or when i do, it's a paysite

I would love you forever!

hmmm well i just went to look at them in body shop and while the pj's look great, for the males there is these two weird like, sharp bulges in the middle of the back also when i downloaded the all the male pjs set when i would try to extract them it would say there were no files to extract =/ though that might just be my internet. so i downloaded them all seperately and checked them out and thats when i noticed the bulges or spikes...
just wanted to let you know, and the female pj's are completely perfect! thank you

No worries. It's a rare issue that seems to be a conflict with another mesh or meshes (though I don't know which ones). I've been meaning to try to fix it for a month (see earlier in the thread) but I think it's just going to require a new package that won't work with any recolors people have done. I just haven't done it due to a major illenss in the family eating up lots of time. If all goes well (finger crossed) look for it soon

Today is my first foray back into the sims in four months due to family and personal suff (real life is pesky!). As for a fix, I've come to the conclusion, after lots of poking and prodding and asking people way smarter about meshing than me that it just isn't possible (as far as I can determine), mostly because the mesh isn't really necessarily broken. I know that there's something wonky with the package, which only affects some users (I can't even pinpoint which ones sadly), but I don't have the issue and I can't fix a problem I can't see . The only thing I can do is stick the mesh in a new package, which seemed to fix the issue for someone I worked with a few months ago. The problem for that is that all the recolors have to be relinked to the new package and I haven't had time to do it. If I get a free day after my next round of exams and practicals I'll give it a whirl. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help

Default Fix???
Okay, some of you have reported problems with the male teen mesh. Because this was, I think my first mesh ever, this isn't a big surprise . Unfortunately I can't actually reproduce the problem myself, and these work just dandy for me. I did however notice a mistake I made when making the original package. It shouldn't actually do anything, but it's the only thing I can think of that may cause these sporadic problems, so I made a shiny new package for these pjs which is attached. The actual mesh remains the same so has the same face and vertex count and uv mapping as the original.

I'd very much appreciate hearing any reports on whether this works for people who have had problems with the old mesh.

This will not work with any previous recolors other than the ones in the zip attached here!! . It's a new mesh package, so you can recolor this one or link recolors of the old one to it, but recolors of the old mesh won't work with this without fiddling

Please do let me know here or in pm if this does the trick. If it seems to be workable, I'll try to do a broader release with newer recolors

The fix didn't actually fix the problem, at least not in my game.

Thanks for trying, though.

I'm guessing you removed the old mesh? If so, it's a graphics issue I think. Some of the Ep's combined with some graphics configuration settings just dont seem to like some meshes. . The package and the mesh of this are just...normal.... and with the new package, standard meshes. Sadly since I can't replicate any problem even after trying to do it A LOT that's the best I can do.

Well, I didn't have any packages that still used the old mesh, but I didn't actually delete that. I'll give that a try and let you know how it works out.

As for graphics, that could be, although usually my graphics are quite good. I'll try to look into that some more, too.

Update: I deleted the old mesh, but it still didn't work. I'm just going to move them all to Crammyboy's mesh, because these are too good to give up on completely. Anyway, thanks so much for all of your help in trying to fix this!

You can get them all in two downloads, one male and one female, so clicking two files will grab you the entire collection. . If you want them in a subfolder, you can just unzip both files to the same folder and the whole giant collection will be in one place.
