[UPDATE: 31/08/2021] Re-categorized, Non-Default Replacement Versions have been uploaded!

Hi Everyone!

Today I bring you a new Sims 3 upload!





This is a default replacement of the male nude top, but now with developed pectoral muscles, available for male Young Adults and Adults, under Athletic, Swimwear, Sleepwear, Career, Naked and appears when adding/changing body hair and tattoos.

Once again, just like my previous upload (the one with the necklaces), this is based on alex_stanton1983's original male nude top (no necklaces) mesh morph so please check it out and download it, if you want the Non-Default Replacement version, available at TSR:
https://www.thesimsresource.com/art...cles/id/944631/

For the developed pecs morph with necklaces, please check out this upload:

https://modthesims.info/d/659473/up...t-versions.html

To repeat, I wish he was still active but his last post was in 2011 according to his profile, so I hope he doesn't mind me using his mesh morph as reference. Credit goes to him! (Yes, I'm repeating myself between those my two uploads, and I'll probably keep doing it for any related uploads, but it's just to emphasize that credit for the original morph really goes to alex!)

Again, I was glad to find his work because it's exactly what I wanted, but another thing that bothered me was that when male sims are naked, they still have the EA version of the nude top. So, this one simply uses the same morph from his male nude top and converted into a default replacement.

Non-CASTable because there are no accessories and BG compatible.

This was done using Workshop, S3OC and S3PE.

Polygon count:

LOD1 (High): 1656 vertices and 929 faces
LOD2 (Medium): 933 vertices and 483 faces
LOD3 (Low): 484 vertices and 214 faces

Tutorial on how to check poly-count in TSRW, for reference: https://sims3tutorialhub.tumblr.com...ounts-of-sims-3

I have tested it in my game and it seems to work fine for now. However, please feel free to test it out in yours and provide any feedback. Kindly note I'm not an expert in meshing/morphing; still learning...

Hey, guys!

First a thank you to the moderators for approving this!

Now, one thing I forgot to mention is that I will also upload a re-categorized, non-default replacement version of the morph, because upon testing/using the original one by alex_stanton1983 in my game, it does not appear in Athletic wear. So my version should resolve that issue by including that category, as well as allowing it to appear under the Career category, especially useful for those who wish to let lifeguards use the top when a lifeguard switches to their 'speedos' to save drowning sims, without it being applied to everyone else like a default replacement would.

Expect it an update ASAP.

Also, I'll be working on the 'Singed'/burnt version as well, both DR and Non-DR, for the sake of... well... continuity?

Thank you and enjoy!

Update: Re-categorized Non-Default Replacement Version uploaded!

Nice work! Could you also do a default replacement version with their bodybuilder top? And maybe necklace versions with that mesh too?

Hi, @TLK4EVR ! Thank you!

It won't be a problem, I'll try to work on them ASAP!

I do have to warn you, though, about something regarding the bodybuilder top. You see, alex_stanton1983's 'Nude top with pectoral muscles' actually still has the same morph for the arms/biceps and back as any other top made by EA, so it matches. With his bodybuilder mesh, however, it's not the same. The arms/biceps have a slightly more developed or bulgier morph, so, for example, if you have a Sim use the bodybuilder morph for Swimwear/Athletic and then change to Everyday, they'll end up with the normal EA arms/biceps morph for Everyday. Nevertheless, I'll try to have a go at them.

Love your work. I wonder if it would be possible to combine the 3D developed pecs here with a thinner waist and wider chest area/shoulders similar to this mod: https://modthesims.info/download.php?t=349930
I love these default replacements. Thanks!

Hey, @Ruvven ! Thank you! Glad you're enjoying it!

It might be possible with the use of MilkShape, by playing with the vertices of the morph; hopefully it won't look weird. Can't promise anything right now but will keep you posted...

And thanks for the idea! Really appreciate it!
M.M.A.A. also recommends you check the following:

For a non-default replacement version, please download the original 'Nude top with pectoral muscles' by alex_stanton1983, over at TSR:

https://www.thesimsresource.com/art...cles/id/944631/

For the developed pecs morph with necklaces, please check out this upload:

https://modthesims.info/d/659473/up...t-versions.html

For the singed/burnt version of the developed pecs morph, both default-replacement and non-default-replacement versions, please check out this upload:
