Tired of your buff guys getting skinny when they dress as pirates?  Well, I was, so I made these three outfits.  They are the standard Maxis meshes that I modified so that they matched the proportions for the athlete, slim bodybuilder, and bodybuilder.  They come with the standard black, blue, and red coats.  I experimented and found out that any outfit based on these should work.  If you have any of the fancier Pirate stuff from besen, Dr. Pixel, or Sussi, you can use BodyShop to convert them.

...

Enjoy!

Not that I know of, but I can tell you how I did it.   I used SimPE and Milkshape & did it in two stages.

I extracted the athlete gmdc from the package with SimPE & imported it into Milkshape with wes_h's importer.   Then I clicked on the "Groups" tab & renamed the group from body to athlete-body;  that's important for later.  Then I exported it as a OBJ file.   That removes the bone assignments, but I didn't need them.

Next, I opened SimPE & started a new package.  Then I used the PSJ mesh extractor to gather the 4 resources for the "ambodypirate" mesh.   I extracted the gmdc & imported it into Milkshape.  Then I also imported the athlete OBJ.    

You'll notice after this step that there are two groups - body & athlete-body.  From then on I repeated these steps:
  • used the hide button in the Groups tab to hide the athlete-body group
  • selected some vertices in the pirate body I wanted to move
  • unhid the athlete-body
  • moved the pirate's vertices until they were in the right places

Once I got something I liked, I deleted the athlete-body, exported the mesh with wes_h's exporter, and replaced the gmdc with SimPE.

Doing it that way helped me avoid importing duplicate bones & made it easier to remove the athlete body when I was finished with it.  It sounds more complicated than it is, I think.

I'll check it out.  I think the next mesh I'd like to try is the standard vampire outfit with the cape.

Thanks.  I haven't downloaded the HBB yet.  I probably should for the sake of completeness.  I'll keep you posted.   If I do get it done, I'll update this thread.

Buff vampires, that sounds great! Don't feel any obligation to do anything unless you want to. Thanks for the instructions too. If I feel brave enough, I may try it sometime.
