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’m amazed at anyone complaining about your work, don’t let it get to you, people can be ridiculously ungrateful. You make wonderful additions to the game and dare I say it a lot better than the stuff packs EA put out, yours are so much more fun!

Rebecah, you consistently produce the most unique and creative objects I've seen anywhere. Anyone who complains is an ungrateful twat. Please don't give them a second thought.
