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.
Summertime time of Vacations
The Sim's Globetrotter
by hexameter

All over the year you can see caravans and camping vehicles taking the road to discover nearly every parts of the continents. So, why not put such a car into the Sims2 game?
Did you also look for this very special car among all those beautiful uploads we can find on plenty of sites?


Here is "The Sim's Globetrotter", my version of a camping vehicle as a drivable car to play with in the game. It was not intended to reproduce a special brand. It's just reflecting this type of vehicle with it's features.
There are three cars available for:
- Globetrotter-drivableNL for Nightlife as a drivable car (it worked in my tests only with this EP)
- Globetrotter-drivableBV for Bon Voyage, a drivable version that was tested in the game
up to Free Time. It should work with all EPs.
- Globetrotter-campinggrounds for Bon Voyage, a version that is cloned of a tent and works like this.
This way your sims can drive around even in the vacation areas (neighbourhoods!). Simply buy a residental lot and your sims can drive around, also to a camping area where you can put the tent clone in build mode in. This car cannot be used to drive with!

Don't use both drivable versions at the same time, they will override each other! Choose the one that fits to your installed EPs.

The drivable versions come with two simple recolours.

I hope you enjoy the cars as much as I do. Have fun with them and - Bon Voyage!

Yes, you can, assuming you have the needed EPs. That's the idea behind of the two objects.

Thank you to all for the nice comments. I hope you enjoy using these cars.

The camp version is cloned of the BV tent. When I tested it I had the same reaction. Looking on the needs of my sim all values were up to max. So this is the reason the sim will not be able to sleep for example. This should change when the levels go down, at least I could watch that in my game.

Very excited to see this, but I've encountered a weird error with it.

If I hover my mouse over the camp version, I get an Invalid Constant message and I have to reset the Sim. This also happens with the camp version of the Gypsy Cart. Could it be because I have the regular BV tent on the lot as well? I can't interact with the camp versions of either object due to the error. Thanks!

Both objects should work independend of each other. Maybe there's a hack that is incompatible? Take care to install the correct version for your EPs.

wOw This is really nice! I just happen to run up on this download quite by accident. I didn't think there was a Camper mod made for the Sims. Thanks for sharing. :D
