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.
UPDATE 1/17/2012 - mesh update, lower waist, minor UV map fixes, please redownload


default replacement mesh
--- no love handles
--- trimmer stomach

Waist matches Maxis bottoms and all of my bottoms.
Better UV map, both sleeves now match each other.

11 recolors

pants / shorts shown are default replacements or custom by me
- cowboy jeans
- creased slacks and no-crease pants
- better shorts

Thanks to the makers of SimPE, MilkShape, plugins (wes_h, demon), and GIMP, and Maxis for source textures.

Elders sure need more fitting clothes
Thank you for making it a default replacement, instead of regular new mesh :D


PS: I've actually checked what "love handles" means lol,each day you learn something new

This looks great. I hated using that shirt with that big bulge around the middle. Why should grandpa go from a great shape to a saggy one just because he got a little older?

Too bad no one can do anything about the osteoporotic posture.

I think maybe they could, if they overrode most of grandpa's animations. I don't know how to do that, but you could ask in the Create Forum and over at MATY.

Hi, great work! I love the idea of this...but would it be possible to also upload one that works as a separate mesh? There are some elders in my game that are destined to get fat when they get old, and others that aren't. I'd love the choice of wobbly and lean.

Miss.E.Mist I have no plans to, but here's instructions so you can do it yourself.

I hate the ugly clothes for elders. These look much better. Thanks!
