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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
And here you go. A short version of the loincloth - in a nifty gold this time! It's for child-elder, male and female, and can be worn with other accessories, but not with the long loincloth. The male version will fit the bodybuilder mesh, as you can see in the screenshots.

Disclaimer: Recolor at will, but do not redistribute the mesh without permission. All recolors should link back to this post. Do not upload to any paysites, and do not upload to the Exchange. I know they're pretty much nonexistant, but feel free to use any color I include with my meshes in your own creations, as long as credit is given and a link to the mesh is provided. HOWEVER, this doesn't apply to anyone else's recolors of my meshes. Those are the property of the respective creators, and you have to ask them about redistribution.

And GAH!! Does anyone know what happened to the 'Search Forums' function? I can't find anything anymore. I can type in "Cleopatra" and it will not take me to the post titled "Cleopatra". It takes me to a post about a twins only hack. It's aggravating.

Oh I've been waiting for this! Thanks so much, now I can make some beefy Egyptians, yum.

As for the search thing, I've noticed how it sucks now too. It goes to google and brings up all this crap that isn't even what I searched for, hate it.

About the search function, I'm not sure why it changed, but if you click on the search drop down menu, there is a part that says "Advanced Search" right beneath the first search box, if you click on it, it lets you search the site without using Google.

Gimme your "benes", lol, j/k I just always find that annoying.

Thanks for that fudoushi. Speaking of which, I should mod it to fit guys and girls so they can wear it all of the time. Probaby due to the fact that one mod that keeps all accessories on is gone for good right now. :sadpanda:

This is Awesome. Now I can work on projects like Mystique, Archangel and others. I ran into a snag tho and I had a question. I don't skin TOO often and maybe I am just doing something wrong. I'm making an Evil Lyn from the 2002 "Masters of the Universe" Series and she has a Loincloth type accessory but it's shaped differently. Is the a way to alpha out part of the loincloth so I can shape it? I tried already, but Either you can't or I did something wrong. I know you can for capes, right? Cuz If I can, I would also like to alpha the back of her skirt too. Can I do this with your mesh?

First of all, I like the skin. Secondly, no, the loincloth is not alpha editable. I wanted it to be, but I ran into problems. You're right, PAF's capes that I made into an accessory are alpha editable, but they're only in the back of the sim. When I tried the same thing with the loincloth, for some reason you saw the front of the loincloth over the back of the loincloth all the time, even when the sim was viewed from the back. It was a pretty trippy visual effect. I'm still looking into making my accessories alpha editable, but I don't have it just yet.

I downloaded it, but it seems that it is not working. All that shows up is the picture and the name.

Nope, that was white shorts painted directly onto the Bodybuilder mesh. The mesh was made to fit skin tight clothing, so most anything else will show through if you try to use it.

The only thing included in this pack is the yellow loincloth. It's not a body mesh.
