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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Long ago I was asked by beautifullass to create a rickshaw for her game. I hope it is a little bit of that what you imagined, beautifullass! -
Here it is!
For several reasons it took me a very long time to make it, so I decided to offer some more colours for it and to share it here. For all who cannot use or don't want to use the driveable version I provide a decorative rickshaw as well.
You can see the content of the .rar-files in the pictures.

Nightlife is needed! - All objects are colour-enabled and EP-ready.

To install the objects unpack them to your download folder. To uninstall just delete them!
You can find the driveable versions in the car collection - the decorative objects can be found among the miscellaneous.
Statistics and content
Driveable rickshaw with closed canvas cover/top
Rickshaw-driv-c.rar; object plus 4 recolours; faces=6373 - vertices=7038

Driveable rickshaw with open canvas cover/top
Rickshaw-driv-o.rar; object plus 4 recolours; faces=5651 - vertices=6369

Decorative rickshaw with closed canvas cover/top
Rickshaw-deco-c.rar; object plus 4 relolours; faces=6383 - vertices=7004

Decorative rickshaw with open canvas cover/top
Rickshaw-deco-o.rar; object plus 4 recolours; faces=5661 - vertices=6396

Keep in mind that animations of the cars still work with this object! Also some that wouldn't belong to a type of vehicle like this (rickshaw)! I couldn't get rid of them! All my effords only were enough to get a Sim standing in front of the rickshaw and to be moved in the object without animation while the vehicle is moving along the lot.
So, if you like, test it and delete it or play with it!

These objects may be recoloured and used also by housebuilders in their lots as long as the mesh and the copyright isn't changed and you upload your creation on this side as well. So I could easily use your objects, too. Don't upload it to the exchange, any other site is welcome.

A long time making the rickshaw I really had to rack my brain over the animations. Now I wanted to have a break. Everybody who is able to split the animations of the rickshaw pulling Sim is welcome to do it, if s/he wants!

Have fun with the object(s), hexameter.

Remark: If you installed Pets the file of the driveable version will work correctly! The positions of the animals work as well as Maxis provided!


These objects were made with SimPE, MilkShape, UV-Mapper and PaintShopPro.

Well, the members of this family are my standard testers for the vehicles if I need 4 Sims in an unhacked game, nothing else.

Thank you for your nice comments. And: Honestly, who really needs something of custom content to run the game? - All the custom creations only make it more worth to play it, I guess, and give fun to all the creators. Thanks to all who want to use this custom stuff.

Little question. Does the decorative one work without Nightlife? I got Holiday, University and OFB. I hope it will.

Test finished. works also with the expanison packs listet above without nightlife. I had only tested the decorative one.

Who ever finds a typing misstake could keep it - nobody is perfect.
And sorry, my English is not perfect. As I am German, I try as good as I could.
