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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After spending the last month racking my brains to try and think of an entry for the kids challenge I came up with this - an additional toy to complement the dolls house. This is a toy garage for little boy sims (and tomboy little girl sims) to play with.
In the dolls house children play with little dolls - these dolls are coded into the object so I made an alternative set of toy cars. Unfortunately, I had to use the existing animations so the animations of the sims holding the cars is not a perfect match; but better than using dolls in a garage, right?
The toddler animations came out ok - the toddler puts the car in their mouth and shakes their head etc just like the doll house
The garage functions ALMOST exactly the same as the doll house - adults, elders and teens can join the children in play, but do not start playing with the garage on their own, the difference is that children and toddlers build mechanical skill when playing with it.. Teens and older do not build skill as that would be silly, but their fun increases just like the dolls house.
You must have the garage and the garage cars in your downloads folder for the little cars to show in game; the cars are NOT visible anywhere in the toy catalogue as they are part of the garage. If you do not put the cars in the downloads folder then the sims will have empty hands.
The garage can be found in the catalogue with the rest of the toys and costs 120 simoleons (it costs less than the doll house because a Sim dad made it out of bits of wood so it is cheaper )
If you use the garage in a lot
Please be sure that you package the garage and the little cars and give DL'ers a link to this thread just in case
Garage polys 380 intact, 488 broken
Car polys = 110 per car
