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.
Hi everyone!

Maybe you've already noticed that the waiter NPC outfit from Nightlife comes with a borked mesh file. The "fit" shape is alright, but the "fat" shape of that waiter outfit looks weird...
I've noticed this when I downloaded Nysha's Townie Body Diversity, went to a restaurant with my sims and a fat waiter spawned.

Anyway, it's fixed now.
No weird-looking waiters anymore!

Install Instructions:
Extract the file and put it into the Downloads folder as usual.

Polygon Counts:
Same as EA..
I only edited the morphs (fat morph) of the mesh file but did not change the mesh on its own.

Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Clothing Type: Everyday
Clothing Style: No Style
Other Type: Not Applicable
Maxis Flags: Default Replacement Maxis Fixed

I had no idea there were maxis meshes with exploding fat morphs! Of course, they didn't give NPCs the ability to get fat anyway, so no wonder I hadn't realised in all these years!

I will definitely be getting the fix, thank you!

Thank you for fixing this and sharing it with us. I remember the first time this happened in my game - it was about 7 years ago when I first began using the Maintenance Free Dishwasher with NPC on a community lot. This particular NPC loved to eat, he was very fond of cake and eventually he gained weight. His uniform shredded - it scared the crap out of me, I thought my game was borked.

I thought I had broken something (again!) but asked about it anyway. Someone told me the townie-fitness mod would cause this problem and linked to you...what a relief.
