Mod works fine with patch 1.63 (and probably earlier)

4 November 2013 Version 6 released


What this mod does

The dresscode sign is a scripted object. When placed and armed, it monitors the room where it's located and forces any Sim entering the room to change their outfit category to whatever you have selected.
You can place it indoors, outdoors and even under water inside pools.
Works on home lots and community lots.



How to use it

Step 1: Find the Sign
The sign is so well hidden that I had to draw a map:

Just remember, it's in build mode, not buy mode. By all that pool stuff.

Step 2: Place the sign
Grab it and place it. Not that hard. Also read "correct placement" below.

Step 3: Arm the sign
Switch back to live-mode. That's where you control your Sims.
Click on the sign you just placed and select a clothing category.

Selecting "None" will disarm the script.

Done.
The sign will now lurk and force all sims entering it's room to change their outfit category.



Advanced... Sub-Menu


Limitations

Does not affect tourists
-Only triggers when Sims enter a "room". Sims will still change their clothing autonomously when exiting the shower, working out, when they go home and such.
-When you change room layouts in build mode the sign will not notice. Just re-arm it by clicking your desired clothing category again.
-Sims have a funny handcuffed walk while their outfit is being applied. That's a bit annoying but shouldn't be dangerous.


Correct placement

-Keep this in mind: The game treats spaces enclosed by fences or hedges as rooms. The "outside" of a lot is a room and also any pool.
-Use this rule of thumb when something is not working: If Sims are able to walk up to the sign and touch it, it's placed correctly in that room.


Compatibility

Game patch 1.63 or earlier. Nobody knows how earlier.

I'm not aware of incompatibilities with other mods or EPs.

You could try clicking "install instructions"
The mod is a .package file, so you will probably need to install the framework. Also make sure your game is patched to the latest 1.33 patch level.

What a cute idea! Is really useful for Insane Sims who NEVER know when to dress for the occasion--they go swimming in their tuxedos!

Possible enhancement: Allow multiple categories of clothing. If the sim's outfit is in category A, B or C, ok; otherwise, change it into category B outfit. The code to do this should be pretty simple. The menu to select multiple categories might be harder, but it should be possible; some of NRaas's mods use that type of menu.

Are you in live-mode (not build-mode) when clicking the sign?
Did you check if your patch-level is 1.33?

Comment on V.2: Switching to Everyday 2 for Sims without a #2 outfit: My controlled characters switched to Everyday 1 (as advertised), but a couple of non-controlled characters (one created by me, the other came with the town) switched to newly (randomly) created Everyday outfits. This does not bother me personally, just giving feedback. I love love love this mod.

edit 7Jun12:
After further playing, I have not seen this problem again. Maybe I missed something else that was going on that first time. Everything seems to work perfectly.

This isn't working for me, which is odd. I did everything right, downloaded file, extract, Mods, Package and config file. Item shows up in Build Mode, I can place it but there is no available interaction. Just a bunch of jumble words and characters on mouse over. Is it possible to fix? I really need this mod!

This is such a fantastic idea! Thankyou!

I was just wondering if maybe this could be used for school uniforms. Instead of manually going in to every child/teen's wardrobe, would there be a way to set like, a default outfit for fchild mchild fteen mteen to change into when they enter an area (school)?

Twallan's MasterController can do this: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/message...137984#54169444
His StoryProgression mod also has functionality to make kids change to formal when going to school.

Downloaded this and tested it. Works like a charm. It always bugged me that sims stay in their work clothes or in formal wear all the time. I have placed the sign to the laundry, the market and the library and set to everyday. Now sims will change to everyday.

I just refreshed my Sims Updates page today and it installed a new update. My version says 12.0.273.016001. I tried your mod again with no success.

What is the link of updates you forwarded me? Are they different from what would normally show up when I refresh the updates page on the launch screen?
