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.
Here's my first male modified mesh. It's a musclebound dude. Not particularly realistic, but it looks pretty good in the game. Give it a try and lemme know what you think.

Again - other clothes using this muscle style will follow (once I've done the rest of the styles I'm planning on doing). If you are a skinner and have an item of clothing that hasn't yet been done on a mesh that hasn't yet been done - please point me to it and I'll use that skin as the base skin for that clothing style and save you some time (and get you a little fame, too!)

Installation: Put both files from the rar archive in your Sims 2 downloads folder.

Questions? Comments? Problems? Gimme a yell.

Enjoy!

UPDATE: Shorts and a Punk Outfit

lol he has popeye issues and I agree with whoever said his calves were too small but all in all not bad . How bout giving a female Sim some muscle WITHOUT the huge boobs and ass. Their arms are all either fat or look like sticks. I want my woman to have biceps, triceps and lats damnit

Yeah - there's definitely some popeye stuff going on. It's tough in some spots of the body because you have limited numbers of vertices to move. I could, technically, add vertices, but that adds load to the game and once I start doing that, then I have to start doing speed benchmarks before releasing each new mesh. Doing them this way means that I can create and release new meshes with very little testing and it should run like any other sim on even lower end machines that'll run the game.

Waiting for more styles (and skins)
I am so looking forward to be able to have a warrior in my "former times"-neighbourhood....

Maybe a Viking... or a Roman/Greek.... or an Egyptian
Or a medieval farmer...
Hmmm... dreams come true

Sims 2 skinning is in my future...
Xenos you my friend are very talented. Keep it up. The Meshes are looking good and working fine for me, I have'nt had the time yet to learn much about skinning for the Sims 2 so I'm always checking to see what skins have been done by your fans here at Mod the Sims.

Centerman's Sims web page.... down for the count....

That is an amazing mesh. Thanks for explaining about the shoulder limitations. I also agree about enhancing the calves. They need to have a drumstick kinda look.

Also, can the waist be tapered a bit? Those muscle guys have a very definined waist to show off those abs, pecs and ribcages.

Jessica - you may be surprised how well that skin goes over.

Tastel - those are really good looking. If you (or anyone else for that matter) makes a skin for a different clothing item (for example, the guy on the left would probably look good on a kilt, or the guy on the right would look good with one of the "pants and shirt" meshes). Go ahead and make the skin for a regular person, but keep in mind that it'll eventually be a muscle man (or woman). Upload the skin somewhere (or send it to me via PM) and I'll muscle it out for you. Then, we'll have those meshes to use in addition to this swimsuit one.

Tree stubble - the calves have gone about as far as they can go before they start to get harsh angles. I'll play around a bit with the waist next time I have this bodytype open and see what I can do.

Send me your skins everyone and we'll have more different base outfits for these folks!
