My guy here has a lovely long torso. yes

However, when he swims or showers, it reverts to a human form. sad

How can I help him keep this body thruout such changes? smile

You could copy his custom body skin bitmap image and rename it to be his swimwear, so when he spins into a bathing suit before diving into a pool, he will look the same (and the swimwear CMX can link the new swimsuit bitmap image to the skin's regular mesh to be sure the tail appears) .

As far as being nude, you can also copy the snake skin bitmap image and rename it to be a custom nude for this character. The name of the nude skin must match the name for the regular outfit so that the game will automatically use the custom nude when called for.

For example: I have brown bears from Alle Meine Sims, and the adult male's "regular" outfit is named "b389mafatmed_bear_renee" . His nude bitmap "skin" (a copy of the regular bitmap image) is named "NMfatmed_bear_renee" . This bear also has copies of his regular skin that are renamed to be his swimwear, lingerie, formalwear, winterwear, and high fashion wear, so that he remains a bear whether he goes swimming, takes a winter vacation on Vacation Island, or goes to bed at night.

The only "problem" you may encounter with the renamed custom nude skin is that the game will automatically "wrap" the nude snake-skin image around a regular Sim body mesh, so that your snake guy will have feet instead of a tail when taking a bath or shower. I'm not sure if the game can handle a custom mesh to go with the custom nude skin - maybe someone else knows the answer.

If you want to see how custom nude skins work, check out some of the custom fantasy characters at the FantaSims Tales (SisterGirl has wonderful families of black bears, monkeys, cows, lions, etc.)

I'm glad it worked out well for you - and even if your snakeman has to have feet and legs to step into the shower or bathtub, at least they will be green-scaled feet and legs, instead of flesh-colored human skin smile

You can get a custom nude mesh to work with custom body meshes, if you use a custom bodytype (something other than fit, fat, or skn) with that particular sim's CMXs and skin textures. I posted about this earlier here.*

Or you could use the SimLogical stay-changed room plant (the orange one), to keep your snakeman in his "clothes" (or swimwear or pajamas). Put it in the bathroom and activate it before he gets into the shower, and he won't stay a nude human for more than a few seconds after he gets in.


* In a pre-Unleashed game, you can assign a sim a different nude skin and mesh by editing that sim outside the game (with SimWardrobe or SimEnhancer, or even IFF Pencil), but EPs from Unleashed on removed that functionality. I posted about that here, too.
