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.

NEWS

NOV20: The showerproof skin addon is finally available here

NOV19: I reorganized the zip files to heavypack1 and 2. The files inside are updated versions of the previous meshes. Just unpack and overwrite the old files.
Changes:
Guys in Longhirt/Jeans, Tshirt/Shorts, Swimshorts had some bumps removed, the tshirt/shorts guy has slightly bigger arms and slightly smaller legs to conform with the other meshes.
The guy in the formal has now a slightly higher belly to avoid animation glitches when he sits down.
Compatibility to the previous versions should be 100%, No need to rebuy clothes at the store.

Swimshorts outfit added (NOV18)
Formal outfit added (NOV 13)



I was just bored of them skinny 60kg guys in the game, so I wanted heavier ones. I bet we all have created sim-families that have TV themes like Sopranos, King of Queens, Simpsons, wahtever... the fat males are just skinny with a belly... not heavy enough

-What is this?
5 Outfits including meshes that give you heavyboned male adult/elder Sims. They do change arms and legs and body but the Game treats them as Clothing. So you have to buy them at the store or (better) create a test sim and equip him with the clothes.

-Installation
The files in the zip file should be copied to your sims2 downloads folder (usually in My Documents/EA Games/The Sims2/downloads)

-De-Installation
The zip contains 8 (4 in pack2) files, they all say "CONSORT" in the title somewhere. if you remove them your system should be free of the new clothes

-Testing
Please tell me if things show up correctly, if they interfere with anything you use please tell me aswell.
If everything works fine, test your heavyboned sim and tell me what you like or dislike.

-Compatibility
I only have the basic Sims2, no addons.
There have been no complaints so far from Nightlife/University users, so it seems to be all compatible

So if I have an expansion pack, will these show up in my game at all? Or are they just intended for people with the original game?

I'll test 'em with both EPs. All the other fat and skinny meshes work in my game so I don't see why these ones wouldn't.

If you have a testing environment installed that would be great if you could have a look over it.

I love Faeriegurl's "Fat Lady" mesh,
but her "Fat Guy" didn't seem as realistic.
So it's wonderful to see a new fat mesh for men!

I think yours is the best fat man so far
Thanks!

thank you so much!!! simply amazing!! eee, they look great- finally my sim will look more like me. i have a feeling this'll be as big as the 'beoxsy' bodybuilder mesh- you should try to get a skin linked to the a nude mesh for this so they stay fat in the shower, etc.

keep up the good work!

Ehehe, my favorite part is putting on the mesh, then going back to page 1 and going from regular to fat, making the fat mesh super fat. It amuses me. xD

Anyway, looks like it's all working perfectly and looks good in the game. With the previous fat people I was using there was an issue with seams around the neck (especially when increasing the under-chin fat) but not with yours, so that's a big plus.

I expect to see a lot more! I'm srsly, like, get crackin' so I can fill my town with fatties.

These are great. Maxis really doesn't nearly offer enough variety in body sizes so it's awesome that talented artists are able to take up the slack. I especially like how you've made several different meshes. I'm sure the recolors will really take off in the next couple of days. In the future, is there any chance you might consider making a female mesh of a gown that would be to scale with Faeriegirl's BBW mesh? I'm sure my big guys will shortly have a full wardrobe, but my poor BBW are lacking classy formalwear! They can't stand next to their tuxedoed grooms in uber-mini skirts. In any case, however, thanks so much for these! Wonderful job. ~KG

They seem more balanced, with the fatter legs.

Do you mind recolors if we give you credit?

Thanks for your work. :salute:

Hey big cheers to everyone for the nice comments and the testing!
I'm glad it seems to work fine for everbody.

I have done a skin with a linked mesh which keeps sims fat in the shower, but it needs a bit more tweaking.
The problem with skins is that they are more difficult to test/update/delete and they can get inherited to the fat sim's sons.
Its a bit nasty if you have a family running around with a genetic defect that breaks out at adult or elder age (Mom, why is granddad getting invisible in the shower? etc...)

For recolours and changed clothing for my meshes:
Hmm, i dont see major problems here. Just don't put too much effort into it as long as this is is in early testing.

You are an angel, you really are!!!!!

Thank you so much, I will test this as soon as possible.
Faerygurl's fat guy comes with only one skin-tight mesh, so these seems really a revolution in the fat guys' wardrobe....Looks really promising!

You are a genious, a freak'in genious Consort!!! This mesh is so awesome! This is the big guy mesh I always wanted. If you need me to test anymore just let me know. :buddies:

Oh I almost forgot *silly me* the mesh works great. I have the University ep but not Nightlife. I hope that helps.

Yep, youre right. that was the only clothing slot missing so i added it as a separate download.

The mesh looks a bit funny when you sit down in a living chair but is otherwise playable. I hope i can tweak that in the near future.

The outfit also shows up as everyday (yes there is a need for a stinking rich fat sim! :salute: )

enjoy the testing everyone!

Thank you soooo much. I was tired of my Heavy Guy showing up at weddings in overalls or a jogging suit. Much gratitude and good work.
