1  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Animated Drinking Fountains - Base Game on: November 23, 2008, 12:32:28 pm
The was requested in the insimenator request forum by tee2 and weth1995 here

The last pic was provided by Weth in a private message.

This was not an easy item to create and took me several days. The animations are not 100% perfect but I think they look pretty realistic, considering creating animations with milkshape does not work well by any stretch. I did create an animation for each age group except elders, which is the same as an adult.

YouTube Video show all age group animations here:

This item increases fun, and hunger, it also reduces the bladder needs.

You have to purchase the adult/teen side and child/toddler side separately and place them next to each other. They are under plumbing/sinks. Both are around 1000 faces each, very low poly.

I have tested this with base game only and it works fine.

2  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Aubree Gear Set - Regular Maxis Bedding Textures, Base Game Compatible on: November 19, 2008, 07:54:27 pm
This is a set I worked on with Hope Bayler a few months back named for my granddaughter. I have updated the whole set, lowered poly counts some minor changes to the meshes and per request from wheelieSim the textures are pulled from the Maxis bedding. To recolor these items you must recolor the regular bedding.

Using the repository technique on items reduces the memory resources and is better for you game. If you've seen videos of Sims 3, EA is now going to implement the same idea.

All except the diaper bag is found under General/Child. Diaper bag is found under plumbing/toilet.

Most of the meshing was done by Hope. Animations and coding was done by myself.

YouTube video is found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKQqhdycntM




These do not overwrite the other version and they do have new GUI's.
3  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Kick Scooter - Custom Animations on: October 29, 2008, 07:31:35 am
Update November 07, 2008
I set up a computer with the base game only installed today and tested this. I found it sunk in the ground along with the Sims.
I have tested the NoEP version with base game only installed and the updated file now this does work with no EP's installed. If you find the scooter sinks into the ground when Sims ride it, please download the NoEP Version.

This is found under Hobbies/Exercise for $149.  

This should work with base game and or any combination or EP's.  I don't however guarantee that it will.  

I've created small animations for each age group except for infants.

This works pretty much the same as my other rideable items except this one can be placed in any direction for the Sims to ride it properly.

Sims will gain fun, fitness and body skills.  

The file BecksAnimatedRideableScooterFTEP.zip gives enthusiasm for fitness. This version does require Free Time EP.


Issues:

If you leave the lot while a sims is riding it, it will disappear.  The controller is an NPC any active NPC is deleted when you enter a lot, for some strange reason.  I have yet to figure this out.

Tish85 requested this a few weeks ago...thanks tish for being so patient and for the request.

This is found under Electronics/Entertainment for $150.

The mesh and controller file must both be placed in your download directory in order for this to work properly.

Free Time EP is required for this to work.

5  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.

6  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.

7  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!

8  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Toddler N Infant Booster Seat - Requested on: July 01, 2008, 11:04:06 pm
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!

9  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Rideable Black Panther - Requested on: June 29, 2008, 09:45:06 pm
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!

This was requested by Tish85...Thanks for the request Tish.

It works like my other rideable items except this time I made all options non autonomous.

Please be sure to face the tigers head towards the north for Sims to ride correctly.

Enjoy!

12  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Flyable N Rideable Dragon - Custom Anim N Sound on: June 23, 2008, 10:18:02 am
This is under exercise equipment for $3000.

Rideable Option Video


Fly Option Video


Issues:
You have to face the head of the dragon towards the north, on your lot to ride or fly in the proper direction.

This works similar to my other rideable items.

Sims gain bodyskills, fitness and fun when riding or flying.


Thanks to KinTheAilen for find the sound file, and encouraging me to create this.  I've had several other requests for this item thanks to all for your kind words and moral support.

13  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / Dancing Bear Plays Nursery Rhymes - Custom Sounds on: June 05, 2008, 03:58:07 pm
I've always loved the bear sculpture but felt it would make a nicer deco item for children's rooms. Then I came up with the idea to add nursery rhymes and make it animated.

Free Time Version and Open for Business:
You do not need the BecksNurseryRhymeDancingBearRCs.zip file for this version. I used the repository technique to pull textures from the statue for the Free Time OFB Version Only. I didn't take screen shots of all the different color options.

Sing Along option toddlers gain charisma skills and fun when they sing along with the dancing bear.

Toddlers gain fun and enthusiasm for music, when they dance along with the music.

No EP Version:

Toddlers gain fun when dancing with the bear in the No EP version.

One issue I have it the music ends before it's turned off if you play it for quite awhile..I found the music does startup again after awhile. I added more nursery rhymes to the version I have posted now, that should help to not have as long of a delay without any music. I've also found when turned off the music will play until the whole track is finished.

This is found under Electronics/Stereo for $99.

Click on the video pic to see and hear videos:






Open For Business is required along with Free Time for the Free Time version.

No Ep's are needed for the NoEP version.  I've also tested this version with Castaway Stories and it does work fine.

RC file is for the NoEP version.  I included a couple of recolors in the FTOFB Version also.
14  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Objects & Recolors / One Tile Crib N Changing Table - Castaway Style on: May 17, 2008, 01:01:27 am
These I created from the Castaway Stories large sized versions. If you have the Castaway Stories I have also included a version that works for that.

The non Castaway version does not require any EP and is found under Misc/Child for $50 each.

The Castaway version you will find the crib under beds and the changing table under plumbing.

Enjoy!






15  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Misc. Mods and Careers / Mods That Allows Toddlers To Use Stairs on: April 30, 2008, 02:35:43 am
I know lots of people have asked to this mod for a very long time, and I've finally gotten around to creating it.

There is a mod for regulars and modular stairs. You really should download both.

One problem is I'm not sure if it will require Free Time. If anyone could test with other EP and report back I'd really appreciate it.

I tested it in Life Stories and it works..so it should work for base game, but I'm not positive.

Enjoy!
