By RebecahI have an Adult sized Unicorn for Adults, Elders, and Teens with 2 ride gaits, it also will graze, eat and play a light whinney sound.
The pony sized unicorn is for children it has only one ride option with the graze, eat and a pet option.
The unicorn has to be placed heading north, for the Sims to ride it correctly. That is north from where the lots sits within the neighborhood.
Body skill and fitness is gained when sims ride either of these unicorns.
Both items are found under Knowledge/Exercise Equipment.
Thanks to Rougue for the texture, and Shaklin for her original rideable item.

Update January 13, 2009 -
New Version gives toddler enthusiasm for tinkering.
I also reduce the poly count and fix the shadows in this version.
A toy to teach mechanical skills was requested by goody-goody. Thanks for the request goody-goody.
I coded it to give mechanical skill and at a little faster speed not a lot but somewhat.
I works about the same as the Maxis Shape Box except they just hit on it. I changed the order the animations come up.
There are 2 files included 1 is the Hammer and the other the actual peg box. You need to have both files placed in your download directory for this to work.
It is priced the same as the Maxis Shape Box and found under General/Child.

This was requested by Silky-M. Thanks for the request Silky.
There are 3 files contained in the rar file, you must have all 3 in your download directory for this to work.
If you close your household while a Sims is riding this it will disappear.
The chair runs backward. I'm just not able to get it going in a forward motion and have the sims sit in it. I will try to find a different animation to use and if I do I will update it.
This one took me a very long time to create, it is not an easy item to get working. I've had requests for tutorials on this type of item but I'm afraid it would take so many pages it would take weeks to create. So much of it is trial and error....many trial and errors. The hardest part is getting the item to place in the right position by way of the slots and routes. I'm not sure I could explain all this, because I have to make the changes then test it out. This one took me at least 25 tries before I was able to get it.
The item is found under Knowledge/Exercise for $50. Sims will gain fitness, body skills, and fun.

Update March 5, 2008
I've been working for a few weeks on a playground set mainly for a toddler.
I designed a toddler seat if it is placed alone on the lot. If you add another set to the left side it will give you the swing for adults etc. Adults are able to use the toddler seat but it would look kind of silly.
By RebecahPosted 17 August 2008 - 11:31 PM
The incubator will work with any game combination.
This item was requested by theraven at www.insimenator.org
It is a co-creation by Bloom and myself. It isn't 100% perfect but Bloom and I did give it our very best.
Bloom is a wonderful creator and it was a real pleasure for me to work with him. I could not have gotten the textures nor the animated monitors without his help.
This is found in the same area as the regular crib for the same price.
I hope this will be useful to some of the story creators, and just to use for fun.
The animation for the check on infant works the same as the tuck in, in regards to filling social, comfort etc.

The main mesh is blue and I've added a pink recolor that is used in the video.

This is a set that I worked with Hope Bayler to create. The meshes are by Hope and the animations, coding and recolors are by me.
Hope dedicated and named this set to my newest granddaughter.

I don't have the poly counts but none of them are very big.
You must install the mesh files for the recolors to work.
Base Game Compatible
Note: I have added a sims2pack file type for those that prefer it. You only need to download either the 3 zip files or just the sims3pack file, if you want all of the files.

This was requested by Deedee09. Thanks for the cute idea Deedee09.
This one is found in Hobbies/Exercise for $149.
Toddlers gain fitness, body skill and fun when riding this.
Note: If a toddler is riding one when you exit the lot it will disappear, as the game deletes all active NPC when you reenter any lot. There are 2 files in the zip, both files must be placed in your downloads directory,
Face Count 2573 - I have tested this with base game only installed and it does work as expected. The computer I have the base game installed on is an older computer, about 5 years old, with only 512 memory, an integrated video card and this did not slow the game down at all.

I'm very new to creating animations and if you need perfection I'm afraid I can't give it to you. I did really try to get the legs to be in sync with the pedals but I'm just not able to accomplish this. The animations are created separate from each other as far as I know there isn't a way to create them together, if there were it would make it 100% easier.
I've created two ride option one that they ride the bike in a normal way and the second they will do some wheelies.
It is found under Knowledge/Exercise for $149.00 simoleons.
Adults, Teens and Elders are able to ride either option. They gain fun, fitness and earn body skills while riding it.
If Sims are riding it when you exit the game it will disappear, because it is controlled by an NPC.

Put Milk Away
Well this one has been in the works for quite some time. I've had several requests for a milking option and I've finally got it close to my desired result.
The milking option is done a random number of times before they are done. When the Sims starts milking a crate and pail of milk appears, the animations are a little quirky, I just tried to make it look like they are having some fun. The fingers are really hard to get in a good position, at least for me. Once the Sims is done milking a dialog box will appear, and the crate will disappear underneath them (I almost gave up on this option, but I finally got it to work), anyway the dialog box will allow you to have them put the milk in the fridge or sell it for $25. It will give 25 food units to the fridge, be sure you have the the capacity to allow for it to be put away.
I worked on the riding animations but they still have a glide appearance, if this bothers you please don't download it. It is the best I could do.
I've added a relax pose this option doesn't give any fun or anything it's just to pose the cow. There is a get up option to make them stand back up too.
The graze option and eat option work similar to viewing a picture. Sims will gain fun will using these options but have to be directed to do something else unless their needs get low.
All options are non autonomous except the milking option.
This is found under Hobbies/Exercise, because when riding adults, teens and elders gain fitness, and body skills.
If you use testingcheats enables true you may get an error if you cancel the ride option, it is best to direct the Sims to go to another action to prevent this error, or just click on the ground and direct the sims to go here.
When they pick up the pail of milk they do bleed into the cow, sorry I just could not find a way around this. When milking at a 45
By RebecahPosted 12 February 2008 - 11:59 PM I'm not sure this will be good enough for some of you. I've tried over 100 times to get the animations to look perfect and I just don't seem to be able to do it. It was a real challenge for me just to get the slots and routes to work properly.
A video is posted here to help you decide if it's worth the download:
Toddlers gain fun while using this item. No EP's are required. Poly count is 3836.
It is found under deco/sculptures for $500. I will change the location for the final version. If I add the body skill I will place it under Exercise equipment, it not I guess general/child.
I would also like your opinions on the following:
Is this something you would use in your game?
Would you like to see children and adults allowed to use this?
Should they gain body skills?
Is there anyone that could tell me how to get the animations perfect?
Any constructive help would be very much appreciated.
By RebecahPosted 13 December 2007 - 07:33 PM
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 ride able 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 ride able 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.
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.

I've started this a few months ago and put it aside because I couldn't get the poly count down to something reasonable, and I also needed a good sound, finally I got it working with a reasonable poly count.
The face count is 5114 but it does span over 2 tiles so it isn't to terrible. If you don't have a lot of memory for your game this may not work good for you. I had no problems with 4 of them on a lot at the same time.
You have to forgive the missing section of the actual blade as that portion would make it way overboard for face count.
It must be placed on terrain to place it on the lot and is found under Hobbies/Misc for $2500 it does not depreciate.
Front and rear wheels are animated, and this was a real challenge to get them both working.
Sims may get on it backwards or sideways, you have to play with the placement to get them to ride it properly. Sorry I haven't figure out this problem.
The sound does linger for a minute or so after they stop riding. I decreased the length of the sound but I just couldn't get it perfect.
I have place this in Hacked Objects, for those that don't understand what a hacked object is, let me explain. A hacked object is an item that has been coded by the creator. It isn't hacked to cause problems for your game, the hacked term is a little scary to some but it really doesn't mean anything bad in this case.
Gives Sims Enthusiasm for the Outdoors.
Sims will gain Cleaning Skills when riding it.

Updated December 18. 2019 I updated this to smooth the head a bit, it still looks like there should be hair there but it's not crooked.
I had to make new images and noticed it just didn't look quite right.
Almost every little girl has had a baby doll, now your Sims girls are able to have one too.
This was requested by spoiled hottie here: Click Here
It is playable for all age groups, and works like the teddy bear.
It is easily recolorable.
I've included all EA skin colors and 3 other recolors.
The mesh is the infant by EA.

A few months ago Kate at http://www.parsimonious.org/ asked me for a Hot Air Balloon that could would go up and down. I owe the whole idea for this creations to her. Please be sure to check her site for her "Vintage Hot Air Balloon" and about 1000 new uploads in honor of her sites 5th birthday.
My version works differently than Kate's, and is not nearly as beautiful. The animations took me weeks to get in sync. I have found at times during the ride the sims will drop a little too low, but the actual animations are in sync so I think this may actually happen when there is a lag in my computer. If this bothers you please don't download. I get some complaints about my animations and frankly I'm a little tired of them. I do the best I can with the tools I have.
Entry and exit animations are my manually edit to the hot tub jumpin and out. Credit for the idea for the outgoing sims to get ill after riding, goes to Kate's husband.
This item is found under Hobbies/Miscellaneous for $2500. It does not depreciate.
Sims will gain enthusiasm for Nature, fun and Logic skills while riding in the balloon.
Warning the ride is somewhat lengthy don't have your Sims take a ride just before school or work. The landing portion does take a little time.
I include 3 recolors.
I also have these set to be view able from the neighborhood also.

Rideable Skateboard for adult and elders. They will gain body skills, fun and increase their fitness while riding it.
It is found under Hobbies/Exercise for $50.
You must have all 3 files in your download directory for this to work properly.
Note: If you leave your sims riding any of my rideable items when you leave the game the items will disappear. May require at least one expansion pack installed.

I have made this to increase infant and toddler's needs for fun, hunger, bladder, and energy when placed in the bouncy.
It's been about a year ago that I first started playing Sims2 and this item has almost all the skills I've learned rolled into one object. I'm kind of proud of this creation although it's very simple it does represent most of the skills available to learn.
It's coded to be used by infants and toddlers. They will gain fun and a very small amount of energy (about the same amount as the game decreases their energy per hour). You won't notice a major difference in their energy, but they should not get tired while in the bouncy.
Custom Object Animation: The animation of the bouncy going up and down. This is my second object animation. I actually started this before I started my animated swing, it took longer because I wanted to create a new body animation. Echo and Wes_h get the credit for this skill. Jasana BugBreeder was also a big help to me.
Custom Body Animation : Toddler and infants have a new leg movement to go along with the bouncy. It's not perfect but it took me days to get this to work. This is my first body animation so please don't be too critical. Echo, Wes_h and Solfal were very helpful in this skill. Dr Pixel for his body meshes.
Repository Technique : I pull the textures from the Maxis crib. This technique give you all the colors maxis created for the crib and any re-colors you have for it will also be pulled for the bouncy. To actually create a re-color you must recolor the Maxis Crib. Thanks to JWoods and Numenor for their help in this area.
New Mesh: I created the mesh myself. I really didn't learn this through an online tutorial.
Working with the Slots Routes and Joints credit goes to FishEeyes and Echo.
I really owe so much too all these great people without them I would not have a clue as to how to do these things.
The Bouncy is found under General/Child and should be compatible with the base game and any EP combination.
I sure hope some of you enjoy it.
Gif images are low quality to get them small enough for uploading.
Credits to: All that help make this possible. SimPE creators, CEP creators, Peter & Inge Jones for the PJSE SimPe plugin, this site, Stephen Cox creator of UVMapper, and creators of MilkShape. Echo who has taught me more than anyone and I highly recommend her tutorials found at MTS2. Wes_h for his animation plugins and his detailed answers to my questions.
Echo is so knowledgeable on so many aspects and without all her help I would not have been able to complete this. Most of my creations would never have been a reality without Echo. Thanks Echo!
If you like this item please take time to rate, comment.

Added recolors and fixed it so that it is recolorable and added the option to allow toddlers to get on by themselves.
Thanks to Nonni for requested the option for a toddler to get on without adult assistance.

Don't you just hate how EA left the toddlers out of so many activities? With this Swim Tube they can now enjoy the pool! Finally!
I did manual edit to the puddle splash for the arm movements, facial expressions, and effects, with some tweaking. The leg movements are from the idle in highchair animations. Thanks to Wes for his great plugins.

This is found under Hobbies/Exercise for $149.
Update November 07, 2008
I've created small animations for each age group except for infants.
This works pretty much the same as my other ride able items except this one can be placed in any direction for the Sims to ride it properly.
Sims will gain fun, fitness and body skills.
The file BecksAnimatedRideableScooterFTEP gives enthusiasm for fitness. This version does require Free Time EP.
If you leave the lot while a sims is riding it, it will disappear. The controller is an NPC any active NPC is deleted when you enter a lot, for some strange reason. I have yet to figure this out.
By RebecahPosted 19 November 2008 - 07:35 PM This is a set I worked on with Hope Bayler a few months back named for my granddaughter. I have updated the whole set, lowered poly counts some minor changes to the meshes and per request from wheelieSim the textures are pulled from the Maxis bedding. To recolor these items you must recolor the regular bedding.
Using the repository technique on items reduces the memory resources and is better for you game. If you've seen videos of Sims 3, EA is now going to implement the same idea.
All except the diaper bag is found under General/Child. Diaper bag is found under plumbing/toilet.
Most of the meshing was done by Hope. Animations and coding was done by myself.

All are reasonable
