This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Updated December 2008 to be compatable with Numenor's Drivable Cars without NightLife game mod.

Every automotive related business can use one of these.

Included in this package is the Mesh plus four exterior color options.

The second color option was provided by Numenor's CEP files.

On this truck, it is used for the door logos, the license plate, and the driver's seat so you can use any door logo on any body color. The door logos will be correct (not reversed) on both doors. Included are three door logos.

This is a drivable vehicle, it REQUIRES the NightLife expansion pack

Doors and lights work correctly, but I had to disable the WooHoo "fog" effect.

Sims can still WooHoo and Makeout, but there will be no animation - they will just fade out, make some noises, and fade back in.

The MESH Package file was modified from the Maxis pickup using Wes Howe's UniMesh plugins and the .Ms3dASCII export/import of SimPE.

All mesh editing and UV mapping was done in MilkShape.

The basic cab and front fenders were modified from a free mesh found on DMI

The wheels were modified from the Maxis pickup wheels. All other parts were built from scratch in MilkShape.

Polys = 10338 (575 polys per tile)

Thanks to Vampcat, Cevic, Numenor, Pinhead, and Willem for their advice and information about editing the car meshes.

There is a drivable Standard Pickup Truck version available.
