How does Bodyshaping work?

Postby cowplant » August 21st, 2015, 7:18 am

I don't quite know if this truly is a genetic topic, but I don't fully understand how bodyshaping in Ts4 works.

Gaining fat and muscle mass seems easy enough, and there are some parameters you can define in CAS (like the position of breasts, length of feet etc) but how do you loose fat and muscle mass?
I've tried exercising for my fat sims, but that doesn't seem to work very well, even if I keep them on the edge of starvation. It just gains muscle mass.

For further information, I tend to use the non-running machines. Does that make any differences?

I think it does. I think the game divides exercise into "cardio" and "weight training" essentially, and the first affects overall weight/size while the second affects muscle mass/definition. This is my experience and what I've seen in others' games. I think you might have better luck with a treadmill, but it's still not as quick as previous games. Good luck! :)
