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.

Hey everybody,

I should be back home tomorrow night and will fix the file problem as soon as my stuff is unpacked - if I didn't forget everything about SimPE.

Anyway, I'd advise you to wait until then...

:bump: Okay, I just uploaded the fixed underwear files as promised!
About what happened? Just the kind of mess that has to happen when you're exhausted and want to update too many uploads at the same time... And I'm really sorry for the resulting inconvenience.
Beosboxboy, thank you again for your temporary fix - and everything else... :valentine

I took a chance on this making some great looking elders and teens. This is what I got when I tried the body on a random teen and elder in CAS:

I have all my 'adult/YA/elders' clothing set for teens/adults/YA/elders.

I have really fat and dumpy, way cool and sleek, fit old people, really old wrinkly people ect.

The Heroine mesh is great on teens!

For the muscle man mesh on a teen, there is a slight gap at the neckline--barely noticable in CAs, but I haven't seen it yet in game. The teens evidently have scrawny little necks.....

Mariahcareymcfan,

You'll find it in the underwear, and in the custom skintones for the nude mesh.

No offense, but the teen's just a little overzealous.

Is there a special setting in the age property or do you make duplicates of the files for the ages? I have only ever tried to do two ages at one go; but this would be grand if it is just a single age setting in the property set !!

Are you extracting the files from their RARs? are you putting them in C:\Documents and Settings\*your-user-name*\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads? The MESH files have names that start MESH_ju-beos_, do a search for that on your hard drive - if you don't have that coming up with a package icon, you need to do a search for *.rar and extract the files.
