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.
Hello again all--

When I first created my prototype for the BodyShape Variety set over at InSIMinators, I had included meshes for both adults and teens in the skintone sets. Once I started creating my own meshes for the final project, I focused on the Adults, to get as much variety as I could. However, I always intended to go back and create some Teen transitional meshes, to allow a smoother growth into the larger womens sizes, instead of the abrubt ballooning we had before.

This set consists of 2 main elements. There is a Mesh and Clothing item for both the Teen Everyday Top and Bottom, which are a bit more curvy than the Maxis Teen defaults. These can be used straight "out of the box", and just plopped into your downloads directory and used as normal clothing items. They have default Maxis textures, I've only altered the meshes.

The rest of the set consists of the skintones. These are replacements for the ones in my main BodyShape Variety set for these sizes, using the latest versions of the skintones found there, but with one important addition: These also tie to the new Teen Large meshes shown here. I chose to only add the larger teen sizes to the largest of the adult sizes, i.e. the 36D and 38DD Tops, and the 38 Bottoms. The combinations are as follows:
34A-28-38 - Large Bottom
34B-28-38 - Large Bottom
34C-28-38 - Large Bottom
36D-28-34 - Large Top
36D-28-36 - Large Top
36D-28-38 - Large Top & Bottom
38DD-28-34 - Large Top
38DD-28-36 - Large Top
38DD-28-38 - Large Top & Bottom

Please note that these size changes will ONLY show when the Sim is truly Nude, i.e. in the shower, etc. Crammyboy's Nudist hack is a great way to test, as you can get them naked at will.

Also please note that these are not "natural" skintones, just like my original set... they are still the Maxis Tan "Barbie" tone. If you want to create a version with your favorite skintone, you can still do it through BodyShop, and the meshes will still work fine. See the original project thread if you need instructions for that, found here:
http://upload.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=90605

If you want to use these skintones, make sure you have installed the meshes from the BodyShape project or you'll get the "floating head" for adults when they shower.

The usual rules apply, you can do pretty much anything you want with these meshes/skins, just give me credit for the meshes, and don't put them on any pay sites... my girls need to be free! Just let me know if you post anywhere besides here, so I can take a look!

I've done a little bit of testing with these, but nothing I'd call "extensive", so let me know if anyone has problems. They're using the same technique as my original set however, so there shouldn't be any issues. Also, I'm not planning to do much in the way of clothes for these meshes, but there are quite a few Curvier Teen sets out there now that should work just fine, but I haven't done any comparisons or tried to make mine match anything else, so you'll have to experiment. However since these skins are mostly for the nudes, the clothed meshes don't have to be exact matches... we all look different with our clothes on than we do naked anyway If it turns out we desparately need more clothes to fit these meshes, I'll look into it.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

You Rawk, but I want to be clear as usual, will these work with the skintones we have already converted in body shop or do I need to redo them to include these? Never mind I just reread your post. I'm such a dink sometimes

Yep, I'm afraid you'll have to redo them, to add the references to the new meshes. Fortunately if/when I update the meshes themselves, they'll affect all the skins made with them too. That's my plan whenever I get the hi-poly meshes working, is to use the same MESH package with an updated mesh inside, to replace the old one.

So if im understanding right from whats said so far, these sets dont update the current adult variety and that existing customised skins using the variety meshes need to be redone to include the teen variety?

Great work btw!

I can't wait to have the time to test these out in my game. Thank you.

RisingSun-- Exactly. These will replace my original skintones, the Tan Barbie ones, but that's it, unfortunately.

Wow I have no idea what most of that says... but if you're getting a floating head, you didn't download the meshes. You need these and the ones from the original project for it to work, like I said.

Warlokk, Has anyone made a nude clothing set for these yet, like Dushenka or Topcatdk had done for adults? Their invisible clothing sets made it very easy for novice simmers to place various skin tones to your great meshes. BTW Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, for all your excellent work. I am amazed at how amazing my sim females look these days. There are a few skin tones I have that seem to be made just for your meshes and together they are very hot. Keep up the great work.

I don't believe so, but I haven't finished the full-body nude meshes yet, which is often what's used. Nude tops and bottoms can be easily created though, by simply blacking out the alpha in the default textures and reimporting with Bodyshop.

I'm glad you're enjoying the set... I have a ways to go before I'll consider it finished, but I'm still enjoying making them, as time allows.

If i had the female to with the curvy mesh shape have a female baby, will the baby grow up to have the same curvy shape through genetics? Or do i have to download the mesh again for her too?

As far as I know, the genetics will have a 50/50 chance of transferring to a child, like any other skintone if one parent is using it. If you use the skintone with both parents it should have 100% chance. I haven't tested it yet, but others have and I'm pretty sure it worked.

Okay, thanx. Btw, you do really good body meshes. I hated the regular up-and-down shape they had. It didn't look lady-like.

Awesome job! I too would like to find clothes for these meshes. I have no idea how to do it myself, so any help either in who could do it or how to convert the meshes into a swimsuit or nude would be cool!

I still need to do the full-body nude meshes for this, for the underwear and swimsuit outfits as well as skintight normal outfits. I should have it done soon, but not sure exactly when.

NOOOOO!!!! not more converting!!!!! I think my poor computer is going to explode!!!!
(has anyone made a utility for converting so I don't have to sit there (takes about two hours of processing to convert all the shapes to one color. . .)

umm yes, and Warlokk rules.

Believe me, I feel your pain... I just finished deciding which set of skintones I want to convert, and exported all the textures (Allen Ackbar's V3 skintones, if anyone's interested). I haven't even started the process of converting them to my shapes yet, but all the parts are there.

At least for this add-on, you only have to worry about the larger sizes... :D

I am curious because i have downloaded all the other required meshes, but i am slightly confused. For Adult i am using the 38DD-28-34 and in undies and sleepwear i have got nude versions for both(which i just blacked out the alpha in photoshop), and this is what i would like for teens, but nothing is showing up even with clothes on, help....:D
