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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hallo everybody,
this time I want to share with you what I wanted for my own game since feb 2005. Then, it would be enough if I had got a pure decorative object, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Then Nightlife came out and no changes. Maybe I didn't surch enough. So I decided to learn how to do it myself.
Now I've got it!
Meantime I got a request by MelissaM in the first days of January to make a white victorian carriage. It was a very nice and polite request, so I promised to make the object. Thank you, Melissa, for the pictures!
Here it is! Enjoy!

Carriage "Victoria"!

As it was for me too, it was no extra work!

For all simmers who would like to download:
Please, again, keep in mind that this is and will be a clone of a car!
If you don't mind you surely will take the disadvantages and use it with fun. Animations of the horses are not yet possible!!!

This object needs Nightlife! It is colour-enabled. After installation you can find it under the carcollection.

The carriage is very detailled. Therefore it may cause problems for some systems! It works fine in my game.
Statistics: faces - 18750; vertices - 12654
I made two other colours, which come with the zip-file.
Some people have a feeling for colours and their combination. I admire them. I unfortunately don't have that skill! So excuse me in that point.

The carriage is tested in an unhacked game. All functions of the original car seem to be available and work. That means also some strange animations like entering the vehicle, upcoming windows in some scenario, noise of a motor are normal. Don't be surprised!

If you are interested in this vehicle use it like you want. If you find any faults please give us a warning.

If you think the object is useless or too bad don't download!!!

This is the only site I uploaded this object and it should remain the only site for it, but as I said: Use it like you want!
(That means I hope to participate in that what you could do with it.)

Installation: copy the package-file (within the zip-file) to your downloadfolder or in a subfolder of it. To get rid of it just delete the file.


I hope all of you who asked for this object will have fun. Indeed there were more people than Melissa and me who wanted such an object.

Much fun with it!

Update March 2009

Now the carriage uses custom sound. Get the sound file here (Soundpackage.rar):

Thanks to Shaklin for sharing her know-how making custom sound packages!

And it is compatible with Numenor's 'Drivable Cars Without Nightlife' add-on.
Credits to Numenor for his Anygame Starter. I tested the object using this tool.

Again many thanks for your nice comments!
@ DoomAngelsc: Indeed, I thought about the idea of a closed version. I could have made it as "both in one", but that would have araised the number of pixels and faces again and maybe a little too much. As MelissaM wanted an open version it is like that. And another remark: I don't want to have anyone feel "ungrateful" or grateful. I'm happy if you like it. Even if nobody had a use for all these things I made, I'm content with them in my game.
But as they are made why shouldn't others have them, too?
Thank you to everybody of you again for your appreciation!

Thanks! But details with so much curved forms araise the number of pixels enormously even in small things like they are used within the lamps.
So this is always a compromise between what is possible and what is playable.

Wow just what I always wanted! Thank-you so much! Would it be possible to make it as a purely decorative object so it doesn't have to be placed just on driveways? Keep up the good work, and thanks again!

Llyana that's already possible. Use "moveObjects on" and put it where you want. Now you won't be able to use it as a driveable vehicle, but you got it for your purposes. I did it for taking the picture titled "Options1".
This way you even can move it with sims on it, for example to take pictures in wedding scenes.

No, you don't. Make sure you have it in within your downloads. I just learned that it might be not exactly installed. The package is rather large. And it depends on the extensions you have. Simply try again before getting in stress.
