This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is an OPTIONAL addon to my heavy meshes you can find here:

You can dress your sims in my heavy meshes without using this skin, they will all show up correctly. However, using this skin without using the clothes makes little sense.


This is still in testing but it seems to work all fine

NEWS
NOV21: New Version uploaded that addresses the "invisible Grampa" problem


My heavy male meshes now become showerproof!

Here is the first draft of the Heavy Male skin, only light skintone for now. It's a repainted skin texture for adult/elder males that has a mesh linked to it so that the sims stay fat in the shower.

BIOHAZARD WARNING: this skin can be genetically passed on to your sim's children. This cause problems if any faults with the skin show up at a later stage. Maybe its better if you test this skin on a fat priest first

Please tell me if everything shows up correctly in your game, especially with any extetion packs you are using.

Hope you like the repainted bodies, fit heavy sims dont have unrealistic muscles for their size and the fat heavies look a bit chubbier.

INSTALLATION: You know the drill, unzip to your sims2 downloads directory.

happy testing
Consort

Testing the age progression between the meshes.
After testing toddler, child and teen stages, the meshes are relatively unchanged from the original meshes. It was nice to see their bodies didn't disappear.

The Adult Stage works perfectly, he stays a big man in the shower. Absolutely no problems there.

However, in the Elder Stage, when the Elder takes a shower, his body becomes completely invisible.

I commend you for keeping the Adult Stage intact. Now, if I could just keep the elder Stage from turning into the disembodied head.

Wow, You work fast Consort. I didn't think the skin would be available so fast. I'll see what I get from the elder thing. I'll get back in touch with you.

Alright the new version should fix the invisible elder bug.
I forgot that i had linked the elders to a different mesh for testing purposes.

Good work. I was just about to tell you that my elder vanished in the shower as well. Or at least his body.

This is wonderful, any chance you will extend it to elder and make a chubby teen or even child too? This would make a great genetic set!

Thanks so much, let's see if Grandpa comes back.

Have a great day and thanks again.

What do you think about a fat toddler? LOL
Lab Assistant
#17 Old 25th Nov 2005 at 3:47 AM
I think he is just too cute, the fat kid is kind of funny, but real looking, very nice! I think a chub teen would be a challenge, but they are out there, you should see my daughters boyfriend, nice boy, but big belly! Thanks for considering it!

Could you make some fat kids, toddlers and teens and post it up for downloads? That would be realli nice. =)

Oh and can someone tell me how to use the skin. I searched everywhere on this site, but im bad at searching, so could someone help me?

P.s. I could do with a tutorial on how to make a skin like this =).

Hello Darkpsyfox, you just load the skin into your download folder and choose it when creating a sim. It will make the adult males fat like this guy. That's all there is to it. There is already a tutorial to make this kind of skin in the tutorial section. Have a great day.

ok thanks, i just found out how to apply the skin and was about to say that =).

Sorry for the bother.

But i still cant find the tutorial. I suppose I am just too thick to find the right one...
Meaybe someone can help put the link here? :iws:

Edit: Ok nevermind. I found out how to use it myself, but I still have a problem with 3D editing... Can someone help me with the joints and animation?

Hmmm, i managed to find out how to make the clothes, but everytime i try to make the guy fat, the guy gets totally distorted and looks like a bunch of sticks, with his legs and pants lying on the ground. Anyone knows the reason for this stupid 3D problem?

uhm if you have difficulties creating your own fat meshes then youre in the wrong spot here. This thread is about the download offered above.
Try your luck with a post in the Create section of this forum.
