This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
(revised Jul 7, 2019)
Here is my collection of speedo recolors in semi-sheer and thong versions, in this set you will find the following:
-sheer black
-sheer white
-sheer gray
-sheer pink
-sheer red
-sheer orange
-sheer gold
-sheer yellow
-sheer light green
-sheer green
-sheer teal
-sheer light blue
-sheer blue
-sheer purple

Both sets include a custom mesh that show a proportional bulge.

I have also included an extra zip file that is JUST the bulge mesh and will override all standard speedos.

Glad you all like them, I was trying to go for a thong but it still left a phantom silhouette of the default speedo so I settled for a semi-sheer look. Looks great when you combine it with a bowtie collar (from another mod) - http://lumialoversims.tumblr.com/po...ff-bracelets-my.

Just spent the afternoon re-vamping the colors, making them show up in their own swatch in the CAS separate from the default options, and I added even more colors. There is now a total of 12 color options.

Basically, I was trying to make a thong but when I got in-game it still looked like a full speedo with a ghosting of the old 3D mesh so I made alterations to make it look more like mesh siding. It's only my second attempt at making a mod/recolor so I pick up things as I go. Still not keen on figuring out how to make new 3D Meshes.

Ah the bump maps and specular, s4pe can remove both. Its kinda tricky to do right but very easy when you get the hang of it. So you can still make ure thong its possible.

Well, I've managed to try what you mentioned but rather than deleting the shadow mapping I layered the textures on top of each other in GIMP, like a stencil, and erased all the extra parts. I have managed to actually make it a thong now I just have to finish it and make it have a thumbnail as well as figure out making it easy for me to recolor as well.

Eh, I'll have to figure it out later. It works in-game but once I zoom out the lower body textures flicker like fuzzy black lines across the waist and thighs. I'll just stick with my current versions I have posted. I was going for more of a lingerie + swimsuit look anyway so it could double for sleepwear.

That is exactly what happened to the underwear I made. The shadow map is very hard to figure out, but eventually I got it to work the way I wanted.
This thread may be interesting to look at!

That actually helps me out, I'll have to try re-editing the shadow map as they stated in that topic. If all goes well I'll make a second set of swimwear that is just a plain thong and post them up, giving everyone 2 options to choose from: regular thong or mesh speedo.

I share most of my Sims in the community, just look up Sheikus as the Origin ID.

You'll have to enable "include custom content" under 'advanced' search options to see my newest sims since the game likes to hide them otherwise.

Edit: I've added a 2nd set of swimwear, 4 basic color thongs.


Here's a little preview of what I'm working on next now that I sorted out the shadow mapping issues.

Thanks for suggesting that post, I tried to follow what it said but ended up using the 'blank' shadow map file they posted and solved my problem.

Linkster, thank you so much for giving our sim guys some manhood!! I hate the neutered appearance given to male sims, with a passion! Besides, I love me some man-bulge anyway!! Haha. I just wish there was a good working slider for male bulge size using a number (0-100): 0-10 Very modest/maxis default, 11-25 Modest/no longer neutered, 26-50 Average/proportional, 51-75 Noticeable/Proportional, 76-95 Noticeable/Showoff, 96-100 Porn Star/Big Showoff?

I've seen other mods like mine that come in other sizes, this was just a personal edit I made for myself originally then shared it so I only have the one size.
