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.
I made some changes, removed the smooth and subsurf options from in 'blender' 3d program and was able to get the polycount down quite a bit. It still looks good in the game.YAY.

I wanted to create a Trampoline for my sims backyard and I guess you could use for your gyms also to go with the other gym items I made. I used a 3 tile sofa so your sim to jump on it but because the sofa surface is lower then a trampoline I made the tramp lower. So it's kind of a medium sized tramp.

I was going to create a round one but thought it might be easier to use a rectangle shape so it looks good when your sims jumps around.

Old polycount : faces-14594/verts-9562
New Polycount : faces-3440/verts-3442

I haven't had any problems with this object even with it's large file size so I hope noone else does....Enjoy....

Thank you, this trampoline is really good.

I have been retired from Simming for years now. I actually can't believe my work is still up after about 8 years and being downloaded. Lots of memories from the game and this website; these creations are a snapshot of a time in my life. Please continue downloading and enjoy.

Great idea. I always wanted Maxis to release one, but no need now! Thank you very much.

Check out my celeb sims!

Now taking requests!

sartake, this is a neat idea, but, it's very high in poly/verts and is not good for the game. The Maxis recommended polygon range is 2800 or less. It would be great if you could lower it.

When I saw this, I was ecstatic-something I've always wanted for my simmies! But the poly/vert count is WAY too high. =(

I will have a look at getting the polycount down. I think the main problem with it is the rounded corners. They are what makes the count high. I also used Subsurf to make it the roundness more smooth. If you don't mind it being less smooth I can get the polycount down.

Ding318K- Yes they can jump on it. Like they do on a sofa. The trampoline doesn't have an effect with it that shows it move with the sims jumps but the sims don't seem to mind...hehe

I don't have OFB yet so I couldn't say if it will work or not. Sorry. I guess you can always try yourself.

It looks great, but since it's based on the sofa, does this mean sims DON'T earn body points while jumping on it?
