31  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Toddler Swim Tube on: July 28, 2008, 06:09:15 pm
Don't you just hate how EA left the toddlers out of so many activities?  With this Swim Tube they can now enjoy the pool!  Finally!

It has taken me quite sometime to get working, but it's pretty close to what Dragon_Slave and I wanted.  My friend Dragon_Slave, requested this swim tube and came up with the idea to clone the highchair, we both had our doubts as to whether it would work or not.  I tried a couple of other options but I did find the highchair worked the best.  

Thanks Dragon_Slave for this great idea and all her help!  (She may have given up on me ever uploding it, as it's been a few weeks ago that I thought I was close to being finished.)  I really tried hard to get it perfect.

The toddler animations are my manual edit to the puddle splash for the arm movements, facial expressions, and effects, with some tweeking.  The leg movements are from the idle in highchair animations.  Thanks to Wes for his great plugins.  

I tired to create my own animations, but the toddler legs just do not work good at all using MilkShape.  Personally I think the toddler leg amimations are the hardest to get, they look great in MilkShape, but do 360° flips in game.  

I could not get animations for the swim tube to work in game.  I think mainly because I have so much trouble figuring out the stack item, it's something that really difficult for me to grasp, for some reason.  I finally gave up on that idea.  If anyone knows of a good tutorial explaining the stack items please let me know.  I have read Echo's which is very good but I still don't quite get it, for multiple stack items.

Toddlers gain fun and body skills.  It is found with Toddler Items (general/child)for $10.

Important:
You must place the swim tube in a tile at the very edge of the pool in order for adults to drop the toddler in it.



For those that prefer You Tube, the video quality isn't as good but please rate and comment here:

I've included a few recolors in the second file.

Enjoy!

ive downloaded but its not there anyone please help


You should find it in the same area you would find the highchair.  Unless you have something that conflicts with the EA highchair, I know someone created something the causes the EA highchair to no longer work.

36  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Milkable, Rideable Cow with some poses on: July 09, 2008, 07:19:27 pm
Well this one has been in the works for quite some time.  I've had several requests for a milking option and I've finally got it close to my desired result.



The milking option is done a random number of times before they are done.  When the Sims starts milking a crate and pail of milk appears, the animations are a little quirky, I just tried to make it look like they are having some fun.  The fingers are really hard to get in a good position, at least for me.  Once the Sims is done milking a dialog box will appear, and the crate will disappear underneath them (I almost gave up on this option, but I finally got it to work), anyway the dialog box will allow you to have them put the milk in the fridge or sell it for $25.  It will give 25 food units to the fridge, be sure you have the the capacity to allow for it to be put away.





I worked on the riding animations but they still have a glide appearance, if this bothers you please don't download it.  It is the best I could do.

I've added a relax pose this option doesn't give any fun or anything it's just to pose the cow.  There is a get up option to make them stand back up too.

The graze option and eat option work similar to viewing a picture.  Sims will gain fun will using these options but have to be directed to do something else unless their needs get low.

All options are non autonomous except the milking option.  

This is found under Hobbies/Exercise, because when riding adults, teens and elders gain fitness, and body skills.

Important:
If you have my previous version please delete the files.  This will conflict with it.  You will also need to replace any on your lots with the new version, I totally rebuilt the skelton.  Your older versions will have strange looking bodies.

Issues:
If you use testingcheats enables true you may get an error if you cancel the ride option, it is best to direct the Sims to go to another action to prevent this error, or just click on the ground and direct the sims to go here.  

When they pick up the pail of milk they do bleed into the cow, sorry I just could not find a way around this.

When milking at a 45° angle the pail sticks out a little too far.

Riding with the recolor will no longer revert to the base color!

This version is viewable from the neighborhood.

37  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Rideable Air Balloon - No EP version Added on: July 07, 2008, 02:38:41 pm
July 10, 2008 - A few people have found this not to work without Free Time. I have added a version without the code for the enthusiam, which was causing it not to work for you. If you do not have Free Time you need to download the NoEP version. I have tested this in Life Stories and it does work fine.

A few months ago Kate at http://www.parsimonious.org/ asked me for a Hot Air Balloon that could would go up and down.  I owe the whole idea for this creations to her.  Please be sure to check her site for her "Vintage Hot Air Balloon" and about 1000 new uploads in honor of her sites 5th birthday.

My version works differently than Kate's, and is not nearly as beautiful.  The animations took me weeks to get insync.  I have found at times during the ride the sims will drop a little too low, but the actual animations are in sync so I think this may actually happen when there is a lag in my computer.  If this bothers you please don't download.  I get some complaints about my animations and frankly I'm a little tired of them.  I do the best I can with the tools I have.  Even if I were to charge for my creations, I don't feel I could get much better animations.  Milkshape only has the capability of doing 1k animations, while EA creators use Maya that has 2k capabilities.  

Entry and exit animations are my manually edit to the hot tub jumpin and out.  Credit for the idea for the outgoing sims to get ill after riding, goes to Kate's husband.

I have found a fix recolors will stay after the end of a ride...finally!

This item is found under Hobbies/Miscellaneous for $2500.  It does not depreciate.

Sims will gain enthusiam for Nature, fun and Logic skills while riding in the balloon.

Warning the ride is somewhat lengthly don't have your sims take a ride just before school or work.  The landing portion does take a little time.  

Please see video for landing here:



Ride and entry Video is here:



I'm trying to post these videos on you tube but that site is next to impossible to post videos for some strange reason.  I never have these problems with photo bucket.

I include 3 recolors.

I also have these set to be viewable from the neighborhood also.

Enjoy!

I always love your toddler Miss Aldith, and I love that you make them up so cute, maybe real toddlers don't wear makeup but to have them look so cute for the game...I personally think it's needed.  Not heavy makeup but to give the child some character.

Thanks for sharing with us.

"If you have Simotized toddler foods and Free Time they may not work."

Could you just clarify this for me, please: do you mean that if you have EITHER of these the booster seat won't work, or if you have BOTH of these. I have Free Time, but I would love to have this download - it looks great!


What I mean is Simotized toddler foods are not working with free time and this booster seat.  I have sent her updated versions and hopefully she will post them soon.  

To clarify the booster seat will still work you just can't serve simotized toddler foods to toddlers.  The bowl just disappears when sims try to get them from the fridge.  The 2 I've posted do work, but only from the fridge menu.

I love this idea that was requested by Divajai. Thanks, Divjai for the request!

Why shouldn't our toddlers be able to eat at the table on a booster seat?

I also included the option to serve different toddler foods. I have updated my toddler's foods and included them with this post.

If you have Simotized toddler foods and Free Time they may not work. I hope to resolve this as soon as possible.

I included the option for infants to sit in the booster.

It's found with the other child items for $35

I used the repository technique for textures, to recolor this booster seat you must recolor the base game highchair. Any recolors you already have for the base game highchair will automatically work for this booster chair.

To place it on a chair the chair should have already been placed at a dining table, otherwise, the booster seat won't line up right. You can actually place the booster seat pretty much anywhere, but I positioned it to work on a dining chair. No cheats are required to place it on the dining chairs either.

Enjoy!

I heard that Sims 3 will require an internet connection to play, sort of like the EA Link Store works, when you purchase an EP or stuff pack.  I've purchased a couple this way and will never do so again.  

Personally, I feel EA has hired some people with very bad business sense.  The securom garbage has made me decide to never purchase another game from EA.  Unless they get their head back on straight and get rid of that garbage.

Concerning the new store ... it's just plain crazy.  Who in their right mind would purchase things like this for $4 or $5 each item.  That's just nuts.

The greed at EA is some of the worst I've ever seen.  Sad!  They used to have a good thing, but not anymore.

This was requested by Skye.  Thanks for the request Skye!

The animations are the same as my tiger, as is the sound so it didn't take me as long to create this one.

I was unable to find a good photo of a Panther so I'm not real happy with the textures, but thought I'd share it anyway.

Please remember to head the animal towards the north of the community, if you want it to be rode in the right direction.  All options are set to non autonomous.

Enjoy!
