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.
*27-08-2005: fixed the underwear files - at least, I hope so... Please redownload the "ju-beos_underwear.rar" and reinstall the three files. As for what was wrong, let's just say that I really needed that vacation, okay? :D

*02-08-2005: the neck was edited to better fit the rest of the body, and the uv-map was improved. The files should be re-downloaded, and will overwrite the former ones.

*********************

After 2 months of testing on the adult forum, here he is

*Bodybuider mesh
*Matching not default nude mesh/skintones

- Clothing by Beosboxboy :
SUITS
SHORTS
STEPIN/TRUNKS
T-SHIRT RECOLOURS

First, many many thanks to :
- Beosboxboy for sort of issuing a challenge I couldn't resist, and then pushing me further,
- Wes_h for his Bodychop plugins and for being such a great person,
- Dr Pixel for testing and explaining things so clearly and patiently on countless threads - in fact, I purely and simply stalked him, because almost each of his posts is a small tutorial in itself...
- the people who tested this mesh and encouraged me all along.
Without their enthusiasm and helpfulness I wouldn't have gone very far in this project!

The story : Beosboxboy made a fantastic but high-poly mesh that he couldn't get to work in game, and rather than totally giving up he uploaded it in case somebody was willing to use it. So, the only way I found was to use it more or less as a mould for a low-poly one.

And if you don't want to see him reverse to the regular sim body under the shower, I found a way to keep the shape when nude : the skintones uploaded here are linked to matching nude meshes (top + bottom), and work as not default nudes, using the four Maxis colours; only the sims using those skintones will appear muscular when naked.
If you wish to use other textures, you can clone them as usual in Bodyshop, the new custom skintones will be linked to the same meshes.


This version is still not perfect, I think the animations can be improved.

I'm also open to any and all improvements suggestions - what I'm planning and/or already working on :

- Better adjusted UV-map : for now, I suspect he's a recolorer's worst nightmare...

- Since I messed up the morphs (in fact, Milkshape did) I had to triplicate the main mesh, so this guy won't change appearance when fat or pregnant... I'll have to remake the morphs from scratch, and I'm not too eager about this right now.

then dont download winrar. There are other rar extractors. They barely take up any space on your computer. And obviously the people that complain about it dont care about computer space anyways if they are downloading files for the sims seeing as most of them are much bigger then downloading a program for rar files. Its good to have both. And not everyone has windows XP. It may be popular but not everyone has it. rar files take up less space anyways. Its good for the website.

I like this mesh! And that is saying a lot because muscels really freak me out

Wirelessguy, no complaints. I was originally confused by the PHP files but BBB's explanation worked and I did all of the files by right clicking until my wrist was limper than usual. I just love you guys!

Okay... I have tried to see where things are going wrong for Haro and Wilhelmina in the underwear and I managed to get the problem to repeat but only after I tampered with the internal numerical IDs. :blah:

I can't debug/troubleshoot this problem any further until marvine returns from holiday because I simply do not want to break her skintone links etc.

So here is a work around. This is an older version of the mesh with the unimproved neck and 16 recolours of underwear for the mesh.

This WILL NOT over-write anything in your Downloads folder

There is a READ_ME.TXT in the RAR, keep this as an aid to remove the temporary fix files at a later date.

ju-beos_uw_temp_fix.rar contains the following files:

ju-beos_uwfix01.package
ju-beos_uwfix02.package
ju-beos_uwfix03.package
ju-beos_uwfix04.package
ju-beos_uwfix05.package
ju-beos_uwfix06.package
ju-beos_uwfix07.package
ju-beos_uwfix08.package
ju-beos_uwfix09.package
ju-beos_uwfix0A.package
ju-beos_uwfix0B.package
ju-beos_uwfix0C.package
ju-beos_uwfix0D.package
ju-beos_uwfix0E.package
ju-beos_uwfix0F.package
MESH_ju-beos-barbie210705.package

------------------------------------

Again the is a TEMPORARY fix, not a permanent solution.

cheers!

The improved neck was the major update, because it's been bugging me since the beginning, and I had to remake all the meshes.

Cooldew, the mesh must go in your downloads folder, but not in a subfolder, and neither the clothing or the skintones - I think that's the problem here.


The new neck is really good.

The gap at the waist is smaller but still there.

BTW, I have all my meshes in subfolders, but the skins, clothing, are in just downloads and the muscle mesh is working great for me.

Nope, don't have to buy WinRar--the ability to unzip remains free. It's better than WinZIP in that i t allows the unzipping of zip and rar files. Just right click and select Extract here (don't go thru the double click way or it does ask you to buy.) The dl link is in tools I think...

Problem getting the files
Anyone have any suggestions? These are great and I'd love to use them, but when I click on the download, the files open up. When I try to right-mouse-click to try to download the target, I get a "getfile.php" file (or something like that). Is there maybe another site these are on, or are they available somewhere in a .zip file (I've never had any problems downloading .zip's, only .rar's).

There is a problem with the underwear skin files; my partner marvine is on holiday and the permanent fix will have to wait until she returns in September. There is a temporary fix available at post No.52 in the thread, that is the thing you need to download until she returns and can discover the source of this glitch -- it may be a system language problem or conflict with another mesh or group item.

One thing I've noticed with the updated neck: the tan skin doesn't match well at the head neck junction. ?

Default Excellent Work !!!!!!!
I just wanted to take the time to thank you and all of the other contributors to this forum for all of your excellent work. Thanxs! Also, I have thanked Marvine for "Another Athletic Guy Mesh " . I love your "Body Builder Mesh" and I see Marvine's mesh as a compliment to the BB mesh and it adds variety to my game. I have expressed to marvine how I would love to see barbie-style nudes as clothing for her mesh and maybe we will see that in the near future. Again, keep up the good work. PEACE!

Mutantbunny, I'll check the problems you noticed as soon as I'm back on my computer - not sure if I'll be able to do much about the neckline issue, I had to map the new neck on a really small place of the texture, but I'll try anyway. Thank you for your help!

Bluetigerflash, there seems to be a conflict on some systems that I didn't notice on mine. For now I suggest you dowload the temporary fix Beosboxboy was kind enough to upload on post 52. I'll look into this as soon as I can.
