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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
March 4, 2009 - I have removed the sound of the racecar as I have found at times it does not end. I removed the adults ability to ride as I had not intended them to be able to ride it. I also fixed a flaw in the mesh.

Request Image:
The real wheelyBUG is a Prince Lionheart product.

It 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's when you reenter any lot. There are 2 files in the zip, both files must be placed in you downloads directory.

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.

Youtube video is found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QumaYGVVD2A




Polygon Counts:
Face Count 2573 - Most of the faces are in the wheels and round sections.

Thanks for the cute idea Deedee09.

I really like this and stuck it in Riverblossom Hills in the plantSim family. When the toddlers got on, it forced an error and I had to delete them. It did this everytime and I was hopeing that you could fix it.

If you are using testingcheatsenabled this will sometimes generate an undefined transition, (sometimes there are other things in the way so the Sims does not know where to go) This happens very rarely and only with the testingcheatsenabled. It is best to direct the sims to do something else rather than cancel the riding option. You did not have to op to delete the Sims it also has a cancel, and reset option. I suggest using the reset option, if this happens, but it is best not to use testingcheatsenable for this item.

Umm I have a problem with this object. First of all my adult sims were allowed to use this, and it looked weird. Second of all if i cancel the action to have my sims get off it i can still hear the sound effects and that gets REALLY annoying, and it won't stop... Otherwise, it's a very nice object.

I do love your stuff though, the rocking horse is my current crush - it's adorable!!!


I have posted an update that fixes this problem. Thanks to all that took the time to report it.

Okay, I downloaded this object on April 19, so after the update. And yet, in my game, adult sims can still ride on it:

The racecar sound is also still there, although I haven't tested it enough to see if the sound effect still remains after getting off of it.

You most likely have a copy of the old version still in your download directory. It is very important that you only have the one file.

No, April 19 was the first time I downloaded it. Today, I redownloaded it and replaced the files. Then, I went into the game, sold and repurchased the lady bug, and tested it again. Same problem. I noticed that, in both cases, when I checked the properties of both files included in the download, it said that the controller was last modified on 11/29/08, and the mesh was modified on 12/1/08. I suspect that the version you currently have for download is the old version. Odds are, the update you posted got lost in last month's file server crash, and the files that were reuploaded by siberiansunset were the files for the old version.
