Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Dec 15, 2007 - Added NoEp version; Thanks to a report from da_smartass, I have redone the controller file as I believe the one I had may require pets. If your camel doesn't work so that the sims are able to ride it please download the NoEP version.

I had a hard time getting the gif small enough so please see the video.

This is found under Knowledge/Exercise.

Sims gain body skill, fitness and fun when riding the camel.

It works about the same as my other rideable items. It should work with any combination of EP's and/or base game.

I created an animation for the camel to kneel down and the riding animation, plus the sims animations for riding. Sometimes the sims will sit on the camel backwards, I've tried to direct them so that they no longer do this but I can't promise they won't sit on it backwards from time to time.

I am also working on a couple of other rideable animals. This one took me a very long time to complete, it took something like 43 or 44 joint to build. So I really hope some of you will enjoy it.

Note:
If a sims is riding it when you exit the game it will disappear, because it is controlled by an NPC.


Please let me know your opinions of this item. I really love to hear from those that enjoy my items.

Well, for us poor people, camels are the way to go-they don't eat oil, that's for sure! Fantastic object-and at least the Sim Camel won't bite (they are a very troublesome animal in RL)!

An eager horse walks in front of you. A lazy horse walks behind you. But a patient horse walk beside you and sees you as an equal.

Please download the noep version. I had the controller for pets with the original version. I believe the new noep versions should work for you.

This is so funny & useful to make themed hood or zoos! Thank you for sharing^^
Btw is it sellable?
I saw the progress on the horse, it's very nice Your work represents a huge evolution in sims 2 modding & that's thrilling!
Since you're now doing animated moving 'animals', could you make chicken & such for farms? (pigs, goats etc) not rideable but just animated & moving around, that would be sooo useful! :D
