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.

Additional Credits:

Wowie, zowie, Beck, this is amazing! And you make it kneel and everything -- that's astonishing.

We should start a fan club for you. :-)

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims%201%20Mods%20by%20Corylea.html

Rideable animals, eh?

(PS: I have an idea: How about animals that, not only can you ride, but you also take care of.)

You started something every Sims player is wishing a long time. I have no time to test it right away but sure I'm downloading it. Hope you get a normal horse riding.
Thank you.
