I have noticed for years something confusing about the male figure and pants. If the guy has his equipment he cannot wear pants at same time. The equipment pokes through the pants. In real life men can keep their equipment on and still wear pants or shorts but not in our 3d. Programs. Why is that?
IANA Content Creator, but it strikes me that there’s a couple things going on here:
1) Cloth mesh and 3D mesh are two very different things and behave in different ways—real cloth either stretches or pushes back when it gets stressed, while 3D mesh simply breaks. Unless the cloth very old and worn or unusually thin, the real thing simply isn’t strong or rigid enough (no, not even THEN) to cause real cloth to tear. (And if the cloth is that old and thin, unless you’re wearing it for effect, someone—one hopes—will be courageous enough to say, “Um ... you realize we can see your ... your ... You Know, THAT. Through your pants. And there’s a little tear, too. You might want to change before you expose your shortcomings to the entire world.”)
2) Real “equipment” and the 3D version, again, very different things. The real thing is more flexible and ... well, squishy. Dynamic, if you will. In other words, when cloth pushes back, the real thing can change its shape to (ideally) comfortably fit into the space—within limits, and if you reach those limits, then you need another pair of pants or else you’ll rupture something—whereas the 3D version doesn’t react to 3D cloth at all. Not even the new geografted wingwang.
As something of an aside, some content creators also provide genital morphs for the characters that are very ... optimistic, let’s say. Extremely optimistic. Excessively optimistic. So optimistic that on occasion, I’ve used the INJ file, and then laughed myself sick because ... no. Just ... no. Those would not fit into most pants in the real world. There are not that many Jonah Falcon-like men out there. (Look him up if you don’t know, I ain’t linkin’. But don’t do it at work because it’s probably going to be very NSFW. The man has some very unusual experiences with the TSA is all I’m saying.)
One of the interesting things about dynamic kilts, and now conforming kilts and the like with the geografted dingus, is that the cloth actually does react to the “equipment”, as it were, although that is a one-way street for now. For better or worse. You can get some very ... interesting profiles that way.
