Is there any way to create an extremely fat character?

Postby --M-- » Wed May 29, 2019 12:03 pm

Hello everyone! I'm using MH for some months... and I want to create an extremely heavy character, like this: https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/06/07/article-2155472-137ED524000005DC-705_634x432.jpg. Is there any way (including user-made targets) for that one, or I need to create my own target?

It is fairly easy, but not quite intuitive until you understand the modeling slider behavior. Move the muscle slider to the left meaning muscle makes up little of the body mass. Move the weight slider to the right meaning the overall mass is great. The individual will be quite obese.

Unfortunately, the extreme of your image may not be realized even then, You can get some additional benefit from moving proportion to the left and minimizing the height. After that, we are indeed talking special targets.

Thanks! And is there any way to make him even bigger, around 500kg or anything?

And there is still a problem - this is the maximum I created: https://i.snag.gy/8bSBF0.jpg. And this isn't even close enough.

You can apply a target twice by copying it to the "custom" folder but with a different name.

For example, download https://github.com/makehumancommunity/m ... ght.target and save it as "extraweight.target" in v1py3/data/custom (see http://www.makehumancommunity.org/wiki/FAQ:Where_are_my_MakeHuman_files_found_(where_is_my_HOME_directory)%3F for more information about paths).

With this done, you can go to the modeling -> custom tab and apply as much weight a second time.

This will probably look strange if overdone, but it's the quickest approach.

The longer route would be designing an extreme weight target on your own, see http://www.makehumancommunity.org/wiki/ ... MakeTarget

With joepal's technology, I created a 1800 kg character looking realistic... so thanks much!
