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- Now you can hang the sled on the wall, like in Sims1 "Vacation"
(if you recall there was a hanging sled deco object in that EP.)

Anyhoo, I created this in SimPE 0.25, and scanned/checked it for EP readiness, so it "should" be ok for University.

The Ground version and Hanging version are two separate objects. You'll find the Hanging version in Deco/Paintings. The Ground version sled can be found under decorative/sculptures.

There should be some recolors in the near future.

If you have any problems please let me know. (Please be patient since I can't be at my pc 24/7, but I will address any concerns asap!)

A big thanks to the people who made all of this fun stuff possible in the first place: Delphy, Quaxi, Miche, Numenor, (and anyone else I might have left out): you people rock!
Epecially want to thank the people I bugged into helping me get started: Wes_h, Oberkorn, Fleabay, and most recently: Exnem, d_h1234, JWoods and Dr. Pixel for helping me figure out the texturing stuff! You're the best!

Hope you all enjoy it. :D

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Cute... Maybe one day people will make a thing so that we can make animations for the objects...

I love that! Did you make it from scratch (I know yousa said that) or did you modify it from an already made-object? Adn what 3D prog do you use to edit?

I made it from scratch using AC3D. Glad you like it! :D

That is very cool. I was trying to find *GOOD* prog for editing/creating objects. Milkshape is a pain for me...I can never get the right view or select the correct vertices. You did such a good job. Very nice once again =D

Great job on the sled!

In Milkshape, you can select in the 3d window by holding the [alt] key while selecting.

Just put on thw Wireframe Ovelay first, or change it to a wireframe display.

I like AC3D, but it's not free ($59.95). There's a free trial, but the trial doesn't let you work with .obj files. You can get a good idea of the interface though.

You might also try Anim8or. It's free, and I it exports/imports obj files (look under the "Object" menu).
Wings3d is also free, and I've done some playing around with that- good program, unusual interface. Enjoy

Dr. Pixel has some excellent tutorials on using Milkshape if you decide that's the way you want to go!

I will definitely try one of those because I know how to edit in Milkshape, but sometimes you have to change the view to select a vertices that the mouse is *clearly* on and I can't actually tell how the mesh looks until I waste time putting it in BodyShop or the game...I was just trying to create a mesh yesterday, but I couldn't get all the vertices perfectly straight and it loked crappy. So thanks I'm gonna try these others.

That's exactly the idea of the Sims anyway, so I'd say you got it just right! Even during the hottest Summer day up here, I still always have Sims who are living in Winter!
