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.
Now that my (our) sims can pretend they're moving, they need something to move their stuff to! Why let all those boxes just sit around their house when you can let it sit around in this new van?

Looks like Test Sims 1 & 2, aka Mr. and Mrs. Picaso are pitching in and helping as best as they can (they still can't resist hamming it up for the camera!):

No backwards writing on either side:

What you get:
A van
A decorative ramp

What you need to know:
The van has 5 slots in the back. Even though they were added to just 1 tile, they can be accessed from any of the 3 tiles. But they do work like they're supposed to!
The ramp is sized and positioned to fit right in the middle at the back of the van. The footprint was edited, so it has a proper footprint and sims will not walk through it.
The van and box recolors are separate files so you can pick-n-choose or delete in game with abandon!

The van can be found in Surface>Misc for 100 Simoleons and the ramp can be found in Deco>Sculptures for 10 Simoleons. Van recolors come in English and Simlish- there are also 3 plain recolors. Since I added these 2 meshes to the collection file from the first part, an updated collection file is included.

Credit to Fresh Prince for part of the texture I made and Sunni for the decorative version of the Maxis delivery van I cloned. Maxis for the mesh that I heavily edited and partly remeshed to lower the polycount.


Polygon Counts:
Van - 5703 (over 15 tiles)
Ramp - 202 (over 2 tiles)

Additional Credits:
MilkShape, SimPE, Photoshop CS2, Rockethorse and Dramallamadingdang for the name suggestions that I used.

Style: Not Applicable
Room: Outdoor
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

Nice work on the details. I love the extravagant number of recolors for the van (so many uses)! Thank you.

Wonderful! I'm building a lot with a loading dock, so hopefully the ramp and boxes from the other half of the set will fit right in
