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.

Hi all!

As requested by PM, I have created this haystack for your Sims to sleep or read a book...

I found this idea very funny.

Comments and "Thanks" are always appreciated

Note: Funny animation too....

Update 10/04: Haystack V2 w/o pitchfork

Faces 437 Vertices 464


*You can recolour the meshes for a free site, for a pay site: keep this set free .

I love this ! But it cause strange changes to my Sims that got on it. I had to delete a couple of them even after I removed this file. I am sure it had something to do with my computer. So I am trying it again! Just had to let you know How Great It is!! Thank yo so much.

Hey. I was able to download the no pitchfork version but the one with is says it's a corrupt file . . .

Hopefully the non version will work in my game, but I thought I'd let you know in case there was something wrong.

Great idea by the way.

No problem for me! Try to re-download it later!

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

Ha ha ha! This sounds so funny!
They only problem is my computer fried itself in its own files when I download any more, so can you make a video or picture that show what they look like when they "roll in the hay?"
