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.
Updated December 2008 to be compatable with Numenor's Drivable Cars without NightLife game mod.



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.

Included in the main package is the Mesh plus the tan/brown body color and the brown interior with white-wall tires.

The colors download includes the 9 extra exterior colors shown in the picture, plus a black-wall tires with no logo option.


The door logos are part of the second color option, so any logo can be used on any body color. The door logos will be correct (not reversed) on both sides of the truck.

The logos download includes the 6 door logo options shown.

A drivable Tow Truck version is also available here.

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

The basic body shell was modified from a free mesh found on DMI

The mesh was re-scaled, poly reduced, and the parts re-aligned. The interior was built from scratch, and the entire model was remapped.

All mesh editing and UV mapping was done in MilkShape.

Second color option provided by Numenor's CEP files.

Polys = 11868 (660 polys per tile)

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

Ah, the true classic, the pickup truck of legend. Bravissimo! I am so glad somebody does classic automobiles for TS2.

Now, I know we aren't to make requests anymore, so I am not about to make a request. But I would direct the attention of a lover of classic cars like yourself to the Nash Metropolitan -- a project that would probably be a lot of fun. In the late '50s, this was a very popular car among young, single women -- it was small, it was affordable, and it came in aqua and pink, the two most popular colors of the time. And it is possibly the cutest car ever made.

There are tons of websites devoted to this little gem. It would make a great subcompact for the Sims. And at 41 miles to the gallon, it would make a great car in r/l, too.

Cool truck. Works just great in the game. There is one thing though. Why this truck is made without the rear bumper.
I am a classic vehicles enthusiast and owner, and one thing I can not approve is parts removal thus ruining them. The same truck was made for Sims 3, with all complete bodywork but no operational headlights.
