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.
I recently entered a medieval bachelorette challenge, specifically for the Scottish clans in the 17th century. I couldn't find any outfits that really fit this, other than the kilt from Dragon Valley. Determined not to leave my poor highlander shirtless, I conquered my fears of meshing (with a lot of help) and made a couple outfits that would make him look more authentic. Or so was the hope.


Medieval Nightdress
  • YA-A Males
  • Full Outfit
  • 2 recolorable channels
    • Channel 1 - Fabric
    • Channel 2 - Ties
  • Valid for Everyday, Sleepwear, and Athletic, Not Valid for Random
  • Custom Thumbnail
  • Base Game Compatible, Store Item not required
*If you want to use it for everyday or athletic, please pair it with some accessory tights so your poor lad doesn't get a draft.

Scottish Armor
  • YA-A Males
  • Top
  • 4 recolorable channels
    • Channel 1 - Vest
    • Channel 2 - Undershirt
    • Channel 3 - Leather

  • Valid for Everyday, Formal, Athletic, Career, Outerwear, Not Valid for Random
  • Custom Thumbnail
  • Base Game Compatible, Store Item not required

Scottish Casual
  • YA-A Males
  • Top
  • 4 recolorable channels
    • Channel 1 - Shirt
    • Channel 2 - Collar and Cuffs
    • Channel 3 - Belt
    • Channel 4 - Tartan Wrap

Because the tartan wrap sits over the shirt instead of 'merging' with it at the top of the shoulder, there will be some slight clipping on some animations.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Do you mean the man in the red tartan? If so, it's actually a female hair I enabled temporarily for males. It doesn't fit properly (so I wouldn't recommend it) but a true conversion is in the works by Buckley. Hopefully it will be ready soon because it's a great hair for males!

Are those EA boots? I'm not sure I recognise them. I love them though.


Thank you! And yes, they sure are! They're the riding boots from the Pets expansion. I used a leather pattern on them and used velocitygrass's mod to remove the shine.

Thank you everyone for your compliments, both on the shirts and the highlanders. The blonde one is the sim I submitted for the bachelorette challenge and I don't plan on sharing him publicly. The other two are actual just really quick edits of his face to trick you into thinking I always make good looking male sims!

Make sure you read the The CC Basics and how to install sims 3 packages properly. I've seen my clothes in quite a few different people's games so far and your report is the first I've heard of any problems.

I know how to download packages properly -.- and I have some of your other stuff in my game. It's just this. I'll try redownloading it anyway, thanks!
