This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description 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.
As you may or may not know, I have a poll running on my blog. Apparently, a lot of people want more Athletic wear for kids. I wasn't quite sure what to make... after all, kids' workout options are pretty limited (especially if, like me, you don't have all the EPs with the cool activities). But I thought that every little Sim could use a basic tracksuit for warming up, jogging with older siblings, or working out to the radio. So I made these.

Six of the tracksuits take their textures from in-game Maxis files. So the filesizes are nice and small! The colours are mint, grey, red, black, lavender, and blue.



Then I thought my little Sims could use some brighter colours. So I made six more. These colours are orange, aqua, lime, pink, sky, and yellow.



All of the tracksuits are unisex (yes, even the pink and lavender!) and come with working fat morphs. They are all set as Everyday and Athletic. (Note: I've left the mesh as a separate file, in case you want to download just one of the colour sets. But you must have the mesh installed for these to show up in your game!)

If you don't like the colour schemes of the Maxis tracksuits, you might prefer Phaenoh's default replacements, which can be found here.

Polygon Counts:
kids' tracksuit = 1968

Thanks to Maxis, melodie9, and LoveTheSims04 for the hairstyles.

These are just so adorable <3
And p.s. I spy a bald kid with a lime green tracksuit? He (she?) rocks the outfit well.

Perfect! My Sim-kids have a decent range of exercise outfits fit for warm weather, but until now absolutely nothing for the colder seasons.

Plus, texture referencing for the win.

Thank you so much for making them draw their textures from the Maxis clothes! I love this conversion, but I was never crazy about the color scheme so these will draw my replacement for them instead. This is so handy. Thank you thank you!

Cool! I didn't know you'd made some default replacements for these. I added a link, in case people want some more options.

Thank you so very much. My little Sims definitely needed these for playing outside and casual outings with mom and dad.
The work is great and love the bright colors!

They look SO much better on kids instead of on the adults, they just look weird.
Good to see that TS2 downloads live on!

I remember long ago tried making athletic wear for kids from the teen meshes but it didn't work, but alot of people liked the idea as well. These look way better and good work.

Where did you get the ponytails on the third and sixth girl?
