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.

This is mega awesome, thanks a lot! For some reason one of my Sims will never adhere to that sign, though... he used to be an imaginary friend (but the other two ex im. friends are changing just fine) and he doesn't have the crazy trait. Any ideas what else could cause this?

edit: I just found that only my female former imaginary friend changes, but both males won't. Hm.

I play Sims in German, so I apologize in advance for any "funny/wrong English term" I might use when describing something about the game. ;)

@LilGuardDuck
Hm thats a bit tricky. You can use nude clothing in another outfit category (sleepwear for example) to avoid the censor. Even use the sign to trigger any of the three indexes (like sleepwear 2).

I don't know a way to hide the nude clothing from another player using the same game though.



@Mikikitty
Hm 2 things come to mind:
-Maybe the game still considers one of the Sims an imaginary friend due to some bug. The sign does not trigger for IFs.
-Perhaps that Sim has the insane trait? The sign has an option whether to affect insane sims or not

No, they are not insane, but I checked again and realised that the female former imaginary friends had somehow lost that marker when I moved her to a new neighbourhood... she cold not transform into doll form, and when I checked with Master Controller, she didn't have the IF trait nor the "occult" setting anymore - that's why the sign did work for her.

I tested around with a bit, and yes, the IF trait won't influence the sign, but the IF occult setting does. I suppose there is no distinction between just having that occult marker and being in actual doll form?

edit: Ok, I found one other thing which is not working for me (on any Sim): skinny dipping towel. This should work if one has Late Night installed, or does this need another expansion? (I don't have Showtime and Supernatural.)

@Mikikitty
I don't have any of the EPs in question, so I'm not familiar with how exactly imaginary friends or skinny dipping works in detail.
The mod simply doesnt affect Sims with the IsImaginaryFriend flag, It's likely that this checks for some occult type instead of a trait. I put that in because apparently IFs (like Simbots) turn to human shape when they get told to switch outfits.

The Skinny Dipping outfit is among the experimental outfits. I just left them in because I could'nt test them and thought that someone might find a use for them. To my knowledge some of those outfits get generated on the spot (like the electrocuted outfit) and are only accessible via the sign when the Sim already happens to have them.

Hey, not sure if this is intended behavior but on lots with the Seasonal lot marker I've noticed that if I put the sign in one season, it still affects sims in the room even after the seasons change (e.g. I placed the sign only in summer mode to force sims into swimwear, but even in fall or winter when the sign isn't there sims still flip into swimwear)

2 issues:
1. bonhilda when entering a room set to formal temporarily becomes human.
2. when my bouncer went into a room (i dont know why my bouncer is leaving their station but anyway) they turned into a centaur.

i really like this mod, causes minimal lag on my system and has many outfit options.

Thanks for the report.
I don't have the EPs in question, so the problem never occured to me. Will see what I can do next time i'm working on the mod

Hmm, not sure what's going wrong with it but I can't seem to click on the object at all. Using testingcheatsenabled allows me only to delete it like any other object. Beyond being an interesting wall decor, it doesn't give me any functions.

I've tried with adult, child and elder sims and none of them can interact with the object. I'm using Sims version 1.55 with only the Late Night expansion pack. Do I require a particular expansion to get this to work, or am I one of the unlucky ones who've hit upon an unknown bug?
