Hey everyone!

Today I bring you another muscular Sims 3 upload!

This was requested by @TLK4EVR in another upload of mine, so thank you for the idea!





There are two new versions of the male nude top: a default replacement version, and a re-categorized, non-default replacement version, but now with bodybuilder muscles! Available for Male Young Adults and Adults, under Athletic, Swimwear, Sleepwear, Career*, Naked and appears when adding/changing body hair and tattoos.

*Important Changes: One more thing to mention is that the original morph was set to show under Everyday. I have re-categorized it and removed the top from the Everyday category, since nude tops do not typically appear under Everyday. However, I did add it under the Career category, which would be especially useful for those who wish to let lifeguards use the top when a lifeguard switches to their 'speedos' to save drowning sims, without it being applied to everyone else like a default replacement would.

This morph is based on alex_stanton1983's original Bodybuilder Nude Top mesh morph so please check it out, available at TSR:
https://www.thesimsresource.com/art...-top/id/947060/

Important Note: Alex's last post was in 2011 according to his profile, so I hope he doesn't mind me using his mesh morph as reference. Credit goes to him!

Non-CASTable because there are no accessories and BG compatible.

This was done using Workshop, S3OC and S3PE.

Polygon count:

LOD1 (High): 1656 vertices and 929 faces
LOD2 (Medium): 933 vertices and 483 faces
LOD3 (Low): 484 vertices and 214 faces

Tutorial on how to check poly-count in TSRW, for reference: https://sims3tutorialhub.tumblr.com...ounts-of-sims-3

I have tested it in my game and it seems to work fine for now. However, please feel free to test it out in yours and provide any feedback. Kindly note I'm not an expert in meshing/morphing; still learning...

Hey, @jamarde ! Well, that may prove to be somewhat difficult, at least for me, as teens use a different sized body morph, which would require a bit of work to adjust the morph to fit and I'm not an expert in morphing or conversions, still getting the hang of it. I'll have to look into some tutorials to see how it would work. Can't promise anything right now but will keep you posted...

And thanks! I appreciate the idea!
