These have been sitting in my WIP folder for quite some time. I’ve been dithering about uploading them since I know this top has been recoloured to death already – but then I thought, bugrit. I like how these turned out, and it’s my blog, so there! 😛 If you don’t like them, well, then you don’t have to download. It’s as simple as that.
So, here you have the BG sweater set in Aelia’s Autumn. It’s not just one of my favourite palettes, it’s also a very fitting one in my northern corner of the world. 🙂
The tee/undershirt/whatsitsface comes in two flavours, the ribbed V-neck and a plain crew neck, both in white:
The cardigan comes in Aelia’s 20 colours, for both tee variations (so 40 recols all in all). They’re for YAEF, but to save space the EF ones are texture referenced to AF, meaning you need to have the corresponding AF recols in game for the EF ones to display properly.
Eagle-eyed downloaders might have noticed something in the screen shots: the sweater set is being worn with low-rise trousers (a pair of the H&M jeans, to be specific). That’s because I’ve also made an (optional!) untuckable mesh default, and my recols were made for that mesh (even though they of course work with the original Maxis mesh as well).
In addition to being untuckable, the mesh also has a preg morph:
“But that will break existing recols!” I hear someone cry. Don’t worry, it won’t. 🙂 Yes, you will get a skin-showing gap between the textures if you use any not-untuckable recols with my mesh default and low-rise trousers – but that happens with the Maxis mesh as well, so I really don’t see the issue. Just keep using your old recols with high-rise trousers/skirts (you know, like you do already?), and you’ll be fine.
But just in case you’d like to use my untuckable mesh replacement but don’t want your Sims to show their bellies, at least not with the Maxis recols (can’t do anything about custom ones), I’ve also made a default that replaces both the mesh and the textures. I’m not all that keen on the Maxis colours, though, they’ve always been a bit too garish for my taste, so instead I’ve used three of my Aelia recols: Tomato (red), Rose (pink) and Denim (blue).
So, you get two defaults to choose from: one that replaces the mesh ONLY and one that replaces BOTH the mesh and the textures.
Only choose one default! Or don’t choose either of them, for that matter, if you’re happy with the current state of affairs in your game. 🙂 I’m well aware there are other mesh replacements and other texture replacements and other mesh-and-texture replacements out there for this top already (so there’s no need to tell me that. There really isn’t).
