If I’ve posted this to the wrong spot, I do apologize. I’m going to use the “I’m new” excuse at least this one time.
This question came up back on the old forum, and from perusing the current one, I can’t find the thread, so I have to assume it’s been lost. That is a shame, because it had a lot of useful information that I was looking to use for a project.
The question which I’m asking again is with regards to how weight correlates to height. My rough understanding was that, as a person gains height, strength increases arithmetically, while weight increases exponentially. Simply put, someone small is pound for pound stronger then someone who is larger.
Where this becomes relevant for a fat fetish game is how people of different heights gain, and at what weight they really start to notice their newfound bulk. One thing mentioned by @Slime_Candy in the “What Weight do you wish you were at” topic has made me question one of my original assumptions. I’ve been working under the belief that someone 6 feet tall at 500 pounds would notice the effects of the weight less then someone of the same weight whose only 5 feet tall. But have I had that backwards this whole time?
Muddying the waters a bit are a couple of ssbbw models I’m quite fond of, Foxy Roxxie and Mary Boberry. Both are unquestionably quite large. From their stats on the bbw and ssbbw wiki, Roxxie is 489 pounds, while Mary is 601. I was a little shocked when I found that there was over a hundred pounds difference between them, since I honestly would have pegged them as very close to the same weight. Roxxie also seems to handle the weight a bit worse then Mary; between the two, she seems to have a far more pronounced waddle, harder time getting up from the furniture, and seems to tire out far more easily. Where I’m getting confused is that there is a height difference between them (5’4" for Roxxie, 5’7" for Mary). Even if it’s only three inches, would that be enough to spread out the added weight to decrease the stress load for Mary? It doesn’t mesh with the square versus cube formula from before if that’s the case, though I will admit, there is likely other factors that haven’t occurred to me.
In the previous thread, someone posted a huge, detailed response, breaking it all down into numbers. They had body percentages of fat vs muscle vs bone, differences between men and women in those numbers, and how muscle mass increases with height as compared to weight. While I’m not expecting something so exhaustively researched as that undoubtedly was, I’m hoping someone might have a general answer that’ll help me get a feature figured out. I’ll also keep researching online myself, and post here if I happen to find the answer to my question, just in case someone else finds themselves in the same boat.
I also had a question regarding converting calories to fat, although I may make a separate thread for that question, as this one has already gone on long enough. Starting to wonder if I can ever make a brief statement, lol.
