Male pregnancy morphs - V3, 12/21/2012 - Seasons compatible

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.
It took a lot of work, but here they are - pregnant morphs added to 10 items of male Sim clothing. Now your Sim guys can have a baby bump that grows as the pregnancy advances, and disappears after the birth.

Pros: Well, obviously pregnancy clothing for the guys that works the same way as for the women and doesn't replace or otherwise affect the normal game outfits. The nude body actually works, and looks pregnant. There are enough items of clothing to provide at least one possible outfit for each category. The baby bump becomes noticeable and gets big at about the same rate as for the females, depending on the length of pregnancy you're playing.

Issue: Sometimes the game seems not to recognize the changed body shape and the Sims have an alarming tendency to stick their hands inside their bellies.

If you have my previous male pregnancy meshes, please delete them before using these. It would also be a good idea to delete your cache files the first time you use them.

As of V2 and up, these are separate clothing in CAS with custom thumbnails with a pregnancy icon to make them identifiable. This way, pregnancy outfits can be planned in advance.


TROUBLESHOOTING

Are these compatible with WA/Ambitions/Late Night/XXX expansion?
Almost certainly, yes. Unless the basic way the game handles morphs changes, there's no reason they wouldn't be compatible. Please try it, find out, and don't ask unless there's a problem. Sorry, but I'm getting VERY tired of seeing the same question on every morph-related mod I've done every time a patch or expansion comes out.

But they don't work!
They do work. They've been tested with base game and all the expansion packs up through Seasons. If they don't work, chances are it's your custom content setup that's not working. Before you post a question here, verify that other custom content is working in your game. If your setup is not working, there are help pages and help forums on this site. This is not the place to post about it.

But I'm not getting 'Try For Baby' for male/male couples!
That's not what this mod does - it only provides clothing for males after they get pregnant. For enabling male same-sex Try For Baby, the best mod I know of is NRaas Woohooer: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Woohooer

Clothing list:

Top nude
Bottom nude
Baggy jeans
Loose pants
Pleated slacks
Swim trunks
Tuxedo
Untucked shirt
Long-sleeve t-shirt
Short-sleeve t-shirt

Added in version 2:
Boxer shorts
Cardigan sweater
Polo shirt
Relaxed jeans
Tank top

Added in version 3:
Trenchcoat
Puffy vest
Casual slacks
Hoodie jacket
Seasons-only: Snowboard jacket

Additional Credits:

And a big thanks to my first Sim model, Eric, for going through 324509654 pregnancies while I was testing this stuff.

** Update 7/19/2010: I've uploaded V2 of the adult male pregnancy morphs. Changes:

- Five new items of clothing added. (Tank top, boxer shorts, relaxed jeans, polo shirt, cardigan)
- All lod1 and lod2 meshes have been reshaped to conform more closely to the female pregnant morph, both for aesthetics and to reduce the issue of overlap with hands, objects, other sims, etc.
- The issue of gapping between the nude top and some of the pants has been fixed.
- All clothing is fully plannable. They will appear as additional items in CAS, can be chosen and personalized before pregnancy, and will be worn during the pregnancy.
- Custom thumbnails are added with a pregnancy icon to indicate which are the pregnancy-enabled items.
- Available as separate packages for those who want to pick and choose, and as one combined package for those trying to reduce their number of packages.

** Update 12/21/2012: It must be the end of the world because I've uploaded V3. Changes:
- Full support for Seasons, with several items enabled for Outerwear.
- Five new items of clothing added. (Base game: Trenchcoat, puffy vest, casual slacks, and hoodie; Seasons: Snowboard jacket)
- All clothing is fully plannable as before with custom thumbnails and presets.
- Available as separate packages for those who want to pick and choose, and as one combined package for those trying to reduce their number of packages.
- The Seasons jacket is in a separate download since it won't work unless Seasons is installed.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Hi, first I have to say I love that you made these. I've been using them and love them.

However I recently had to reinstall my game, computer issues, and now I can't get these to appear in my game anymore. I've tried installing them manually and with the helper monkey and I still get the floating heads (he wasn't pregnant before installing these, just after). I'm wondering if maybe the latest update/patch has something to do with it?

I don't know of any reason this wouldn't work with the latest patch and haven't gotten any consistent reports that it doesn't. Next week I'll be testing with the patches and WA. Do other mods work for you?

This mod rocks, however... the belly is way too low and the clothing choices are disastrous. Any chance of an update soon?

Disastrous how? Okay, I'm curious - post a picture of where you think the belly should be and a list of which clothes you prefer and I'll consider it. No tucked shirts; they're too difficult to match up with the pants, and no jackets (like that formal suit) since they're hard to shape and tend to look stupid. Also no CC clothing; I'm not going to modify someone else's creation.

Question: I haven't gotten that far into my male sims pregnancy yet.. but is this compatible with non default skins? It seems like your mod is just clothing options (including the nude body parts) if I'm not mistaken, but I wanted to be sure!

Thanks in advance! Awesome mod by the way!

Yes, while I haven't tested it yet myself with non-default skins, these are just meshs and there shouldn't be any conflicts with any skins.

And thanks!

First I want to thank you for creating this mod I've been using it since it was released with no problems and my legacy probably wouldn't be where it is without it

But I'm getting kinda tired of seeing the same pregnancy clothes over and over ^^'

I saw you mention this:

But what about if the CC was created specifically for this? I'm sure there would be no lack of volunteers. For example I've never made clothes, but I do have Photoshop.

Actually, any CC clothing based on the same meshes that doesn't involve adding or removing vertices and replacement of morphs should be able to use these morphs; the CC creator would just have to enable maternity for it.

For more complicated creations, the person who made it should also make the morphs, including pregnant if they want to include it. But, if anyone out there has made clothing they'd like to add a pregnant morph to, I'd consider the request.

I'll also put making more male maternity clothing on my list, including stuff from WA.

Thank you for pointing that out. I've been enabling other creator's CC for maternity for my own use since you posted that comment, and it's been working beautifully.

Thank you also for the updated morphs. I really love the new shape.

These somehow caused my game to crash upon loading a neighborhood. I've got a Sim in there that's already invisi-preg, but that's never happened before.

Interesting - I never tested adding these with a pregnancy fully in progress. Try removing them, delete your cache files, and if this is the problem you should be able to play out your pregnancy and add the morphs afterwards.

So this doesn't work if the sim is already pregnant?

Silly me, I let him get pregnant first, then downloaded the morphs. He is still a floating head and no longer has an option to change his outfit.

With the new body sliders in LN I think this mod has been made redundant, male sims is getting pregnant but ends up body-less!! LOL

I have no clue what you mean since the new slider is for muscle definition. Male sims not having a body when pregnant is exactly what this mod fixes.
