Certainaly this problem or issue is making me furious. I switch sims families alot. However, they get all super buff muscle on me. Certianly there is a option that allows them to exercise but not on their own. Removing exercise machines and pools usually helps the issue to a point. I need variety sim proportions not all of them getting super human on me LOL. This ends up happening alot even with the music machines, they end up sometimes working out even if I did not label it as a gym :? and I labeled it as a dance club. I need my sims how I want them for characters and well I cant make them swim b/c they rapidly lose weight and gain muscle. I like some women sims muscular and some not. I like men sims muscular and some not. Some fat and some really skinny. This game needs a option that allows the sim to not workout or to workout. I mean surely if I want a sim from a family to workout or not workout when I leave them alone playing another family well there should be a option to turn it off or on for each sim in any family. I think you get my point? Also just being in a pool and slightly swimming your not going to lose weight or gain muscle just playing in a pool but a choice of working out hard you do. Certainly I tend like my sims have the same proportions I started with them. However removing music machines and pool well I just lost my gameplay on pool parties or dance clubs. Surely enough a fat kid splashing everyone makes the game fun but him swimming he rapidly loses weight and gains muscle and well I lost that fun. If I make a choice of him to really workout in a pool well thats when I want him to get muscular and lose weight and same with a female. If I leave he or she alone well they end up working out on me and then my characters are ruined going to a different family. Surely we like to do stuff with our sims like kill them (I dont really LOL) and whatever we can think of on different characters and doing things with them, thats what makes sims fun. My point I hate the fact all of them get super buff on me. Im not trying to be sexist (edit: I was tired at the time-I put racist-Don't know why I messed that up?-Habit of getting them switched when I was younger) but its like all my sims look like they took STERIODS or there is a plague of Super-Humans going on once I see them walking around in my sim city on Nightlife if they worked out; thats what ends up happening to me. I need different proportions on my sims and not all of them getting so muscular on me eventually. Some I do though in both genders but not all of them. This well make the game more better and entertaining.
