Hi there! I am VERY new to mods revolving around modifications such as weight and muscle. Heck, most modding in general..I noticed another thread but, I wasn't sure if I should have chimed in or not there. So there's a mod that stops weight gain/loss and muscle gain/loss which has been dead and abandoned for a long time over on Modthesims. Seems no one can get a hold of the creator(even on the forums, my search didn't get very far).
My sim is a pretty big guy. The Extended Fatness/Muscle sliders mod is a mod I used slightly to edit him just like I wanted. However, it had its flaws, as saving the game would mean the weight changed back to default size(despite people mentioning traveling to different lots messed with it, I never noticed that). It was annoying but didn't bother me, a simple "cas.fulleditmode" fixed it up.
Both of these mods are long dead. And I would really like to get them back up and going in order to achieve the creation level I need. (x3, x5, x10 seemed very excessive to me, so I personally wanted to try and make a 1.5/2 was better.) The No Fatness/Muscle allowed the changes to stay in place. But the Extended Slider mod, which somewhat worked, now seems to be 100% dysfunctional. I really only care about the weight slider, honestly.
I'm trying to be independent and not a burden or annoyance to anyone, so I don't expect anyone to hold my hand. Everyone is very helpful and nice here, so I thought I'd ask for at least a place to begin. Because I'm not even sure where to start or what file(s) to change!
Thank you for your time.

Since a new version of the studio was released for the Pets patch, I decided to give it a shot by myself. I can't find any leads so I decided to open the dead mod I referenced above and see if I could understand anything. Well, it's lots of coding. I was expecting that. My question is..where do I even FIND this information? My mod is on the left, and the original Extended Muscle/Fat mod is on the right.
I don't think it would be a learning experience to just copy and paste what is in there. And I'm not even sure that would work, since the mod itself is very, very outdated. I clicked the Tools > Extract Tuning > ... and after typing in Sliders, I got a file that was "Tuning" and "SimData" but these were links/tutorials, they said. Which just overall confused me.
I'll keep poking around and checking things out. Maybe I can get it to work for me.
I only need X2. The other numbers were very excessive. The size is absolutely perfect! I suppose I can always share this and a few other sizes if anyone wants. I was sure this was going to be difficult but, it wasn't. However, as expected, showering and activities work perfectly fine. BUT doing a manual save resets the weight to Maxis' default size(s).
I'm going to attempt to work on a mod to stop fatness and muscle gain. Since the only mod I knew to do that is very dead. I don't understand where its "pyo/py" files came from but, hopefully I can get it sorted out. If anyone has any information, feel free to chime in. Whatever helps! Thanks in advance.
After refreshing my mods and testing the No Fatness/No Muscle mod again with my max slider mod, it seems fine. I made a test sim. I traveled, performed a save, and their weight stayed the same. I even worked out and ate several cakes and weight did not go up. Whatever the case may be, I guess it's fine..? I did put the entire zip file(s) into my mod folder. Maybe people were extracting them? I don't know but, it seems okay now. (:

can you share this? i have a set body type for my sims that i want to keep and not change when they work out or eat and im just too damn lazy to constantly fight with it or change it in cas. i had this mod as well but it stopped working for me a while ago for muscles, it still wont change fat but they gain muscle when they workout and i just dont want that. although i will say its kinda odd about the zip folder comment, far as I know if you put a zip folder in the game it does literally nothing you have to extract package or script files directly into the mod folder..anyway if you really do get this mod working it will be wanted by people.
I only edited the sliders. Over at my Tumblr @sirdaubeny. I tried to sign up for Modthesims to let people know, but I messed up the captcha and it won't let me sign up now so..lol. I did what I could. I added a x2/x3/x5/x10 slider. And I've heard that, but I slipped the zips into my game, and it worked for me so, I don't know what to say. I'm just doing what worked for me.
Seems there is another update I have to install so..who is to say something won't get broken again, darn.
