Sims 4: Get To Work - Cropped Pressed Pants for men

Something that’s been cooking for a little too long. So much that I was doubtful it was ever going to get released.

We’ve got custom morphs here that I’ve been experimenting with to combat unecessary distortion and mesh jankiness. I like how it’s going so it’s promising!

Anyway, just a cropped trouser for those sims that want to show off their combat boots or their ankles~

Details:

  • For YA to Adult males
  • 1 channel. Belt is a black overlay.
  • 5 presets, shown above
  • Enabled for Everyday, Formal, Outerwear | Custom Thumbnail
  • Compressorized | 0.7 MB
  • 1148 poly at the highest LOD
  • TOU [Emphasis on NO REUPLOADING]
    Feel free to edit the textures or whatever as you like.
  • Credit: mesh by EA, TSRW, Milkshape, Photoshop

Notes/Known Issues:

  • As with all my s4 conversions, the textures are a little gross. I tried my best but I guess you can only do so much
  • Might be some normal clipping with certain tops or poses!

nice! Thanks for tagging me! Also I agree it’s hard to find a fitting hair sometimes, so we stick to the classics.

Some comparisons of what I have as a WIP concept for a body replacement..

It would be a pain in the butt getting this in as-is since I didn’t make the differences in body states as intense as EA did 😬

Do you guys prefer dumps for downloads or prefer staggered individual stuff

Answer

Serious question. You seem to be one of the few creators willing to create great male CC. I don't get why they always get the short end of the stick. Even EA was pretty bad about not giving us hardly any good options with official content. I hear people say "Well, there isn't as much you can do for guys" but I really don't think that's true. Fashion for guys is a thing. I just don't understand it.

I’m glad you think I’m part of the few. I can see how a lot of cc skews for female sims. I can’t tell you why creators don’t often make things for men. Could be they don’t want to. Or the variety for female sims must be really interesting, just like in real life. However, I agree. I think it can be done. That said, I am grateful for the stuff we do have from the community. And tbh… EA had no excuse lol.

Men have a smaller pool to play in but the small differences and the different types of styles out there are really interesting and personally something I’d like to see!
Of course right now, I’m trying to get some era/decade clothing in my game (and hopefully yours soon) since the stuff pack was lackluster. I’ve not yet learned to mesh very well, and it’s not something that really interests me right now; so I usually just do some EA mish-mashing to get something workable from the stuff they did give us. We need some of that 70s clothing too! I’d really like to tackle the bold print shirts and form-fitting flared pants.

Athletic, goth, punk, casual, business casual, loungewear, tech, tuxes, etc. Granted, that we get the bare minimum from these catagories so it’d be nice to see something that’s also stylish. Also with a handful of celebrities wearing more feminine clothing, it’s something I’d love to see translated in game. Maybe even more culture-specific clothing!

I know there’s a lot of male cc for ts4, but the polycount just isn’t worth it for me. decimating the mesh and all that takes a specific patience I don’t have anymore lmao

So to all the people that converty s4 stuff and try their darndest to make it look good, I salute you. That shit is NOT easy.

Somehow almost done with the closed blazer top than the tee one..

was mistake going back to twitter and watching more videos from wednesday. there’s always a thin line between staying informed and actively making yourself sad unfortunately. the political environment has only gotten more intense and people find it safe to expose their hateful values. So in case y’all didn’t know: fascists, racists, and terfs not welcome

everyone stay safe out there.

Do facial features edited by custom sliders pass on to their kids? i want to use custom sliders, but i'm not sure if kids will get the facial changes, even if the sliders havent been converted for all ages?

They do pass on. However, they won’t show on sliders that don’t have the age state included. So they pretty much lie dormant until the sim ages up into the ages the sliders were made for :p

took those vicecity colors. Gonna add the pocket detail on the jacket and mess with the mesh a little so it’s a little less clean-cut with the rolled sleeves

not pictured: more clipping. remnants of ugly UV mapping

happy new year everyone! Hope it’s been a safe end of the year for you all. The consensus is that this last year was crap so the dead horse has been beat.

Onto the same WIPs…

been working on this sporadically. Edited the pleated slacks from the base game to be less baloony at the bottom

thinking of other variations already when you know i have like 5 things I’m still juggling

Please share your reshade setting. Thanks

Sure! I’m going to go into a long post tangent just so I can say this isn’t a universal setting that is gonna make your game look the best without changing anything. Lighting, poses and fine-tuning settings is key. Adjust to your liking!

I use the most current version of Reshade [4.8.2]. I included the .ini, and only the shaders (mostly basic Reshade ones and the quint ones) I used. Download here.

image

Static screenshots for comparison and more below.

I don’t believe my reshade settings are anything too dramatic other than the shadows. So for comparison:

image

I have a dark game so I need to make my reshade settings fix as much as possible 

image

Then the magic shadows in MXAO. I have edge smoothing completely off in the game settings to use MXAO (and SMAA)

image

Pretty intense but adds a lot of definition. how it looks depends entirely on how you take your screenshots. It can be how close or far you are from your sims, how your camera is rotated, the lighting/environment, and of course the filter’s settings.

Anyway, for editing I usually take one screenshot with it and without so I can fade it or erase janky parts out a little as seen below.

image

Then i go into photohop and set it at what looks best. And manually go in and get rid of the intense highlights and get rid of the hard edges. Just a recent editing choice so I don’t really have a setting that gets the effect I like.

Then it’s more photoshop!

image

So yeah if you happen to have the same dark screenshot issue I have you’d probably get some use out of this!

pretty late cause you posted it long ago lol. but i actually really love the original late night jacket and i can never use it because of the hideous stencils that day thought were a good idea for some reason... your version is amazing! are you planning on releasing both the button up version and t shirt? and btw i adore you and all of your cc is such high quality 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I am planning on relieasing the tee version. If you’re into default replacements, i-like-teh-sims made a stencil-less version of the late night outfits here https://sssvitlans.tumblr.com/post/159443804939/necklaces-are-for-squares-eps-various-clothing

that’s how mine are now.

I did try editing the original shirt but just better shaped though!
