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

Thank you Fansee for your suggestion, it worked out perfectly!

In Order for the Default replacement to work you still need to download ALL my Original posted files. These defaults replaces more than just the Private school uniforms, since the meshes had more than just one texture link to them. It Replaces multiple male formals, and the three private school uniforms that are in CAS for the female. ONLY DOWNLOAD ONE DEFAULT REPLACEMENT SET!!!!!! (5 files are included in each).

ANYWAY, These Lovely uniforms come in 8 different recolors for each gender(one with a school emblem and one without). The mesh is new, and it has a fat morph for your more plump teens. I must admit the girls skirts are a bit short, but I like them better that way. (plus the fact when i try to make them longer..I failed.) Enjoy the Uniforms!

You may recolor My Mesh and include them in your files, just link back to this post please! Textures and what not are Originally from maxis. Don't forget to hit Thanks!

Ooh these are so nice, alovingdiva! I love 'em!

To get around that shared texture issue, you could make default-replacements a different way than usual. Instead of completely replacing the default texture, extract the teen uniforms' Material Definitions with SimPE, then point to your textures instead of to the Maxis textures. I recently did some default-replacements this way and it works like a charm. You'll probably need to do this for each teen texture that shares the mesh, but the child uniforms should be safe.

Here's an upload that you can examine in SimPE to see how it's done: Hysterical Paroxysm's Sundress as Maternity REPLACEMENT by gwillewyn

And here's a related tutorial that may help you work out what to do with the Material Definitions. It's not an exact method for doing default-replacements, but if you're familiar with SimPE and defaults it should help point you in the right direction: How To: Age Converstion Repository Clothing

If you need more help, feel free to PM me or start a thread in the Create forums and point me over there - that way other people can benefit from the discussion too.

I love that the socks have a mesh, instead of being painted on the sims' legs. Very detailed and I can't wait to see how the defaults turn out if you try the tutorials

Oh, THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU! I'll try this method as soon as possible, and I will definitely ask for your help if I have problems doing this. (Hopefully I won't.)

They will be updated on this thread if all goes well (which I am pretty sure it will.) Please check back on this thread within the next couple of days to see if they have been uploaded yet. I will change the title to let you know for sure that the defaults have been added. And Thankyou again Fansee for the help ^.^
