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.
11/09/2007 - Added Base Game Compatible. I have tested this version with base game and this one is found under Knowledge/Exercise. I have only replaced the BecksRideableTricycleNoEP.zip it will work with any combination of EP too.

Please only download the file named BecksRideableTricycleNoEP.zip
it will work with all EP including BV.

09/22/07 Finally I found the problem that caused an error when toddlers get off. I've also redone the mesh.

09/01/07: Added Base Game compatiable version this version also fixes errors that have been reported. If you are having problems with the pets version please download the non ep version and delete the old version from your download directory. Both version have the same GUI's and will cause a conflict if you have both versions installed.

08/20/07: Added code to so children and toddlers will gain fitness. Thanks so much to niskye for the suggestion.

Phaenoh has wanted this for awhile now and I finally got it working close to what I wanted it to do.

Gizmo7680 also requested this. Thank you both for your request.

Note: Toddlers have to be in the same area of the tricycle to get the option to ride it. The play with option will come up if they are not close enough to the tricycle. There are 3 files required to have this work properly you need to have all of them in your download directory. The recolor is the only file that is not necessay.

This is found under General/All...I tried to setup a seperate classification you will sometimes find it under General. If it's the first time you go to General.

This tricycle can be ridden by both toddlers and children. They can also play with it like the remote car. Adults also have this option. Watching give all including pets fun.

Toddler get on by themselves using the pottychair animation to get on. Animation is a little strange but it works.

The kicking animation that I used came from the high chair and gives the appearance of toddler peddling the trike.

I've included a pink recolor, I do find that when toddler end riding the trike that the original color (red) returns. I have had this problem with my other rideable items and have not been able to figure out the cause of this. Please don't report this as a bug as most likely I will not be able to fix it.











For those with Pet Stories I tested this it and and it work great.

Without out her I'd never have found out about Shaklin. FeeEssen besides being a great creator is also a wonderful person to know.

Shaklin a retired creator that created the first rideable item that I know of. She allowed us to clone her items although I did not do this as I wanted to learn how to do these things myself. I did use some of her very clever ideas.

Echo for her great tutorials and answers to question on coding that she has been so helpful with.

Thanks all of you so much for all the help you ladies have gaven me with my creations.

Hello. Awesome creation, it's great that you put the fitness skill. But anyway I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem but I thought I would let you know. When I put the files in my downloads folder my game worked fine until I went to create a family and clicked on to make a sim and then it crashed...i tried it a couple times and the same thing happened. I took all the files out and the game ran smoothly again. I've had no problems with your other creations though. It my just be my game or computer but I thought I would let you know anyway.

Hi Jackie,

Please try the noep version. If you still have problems with it please let me know. Most crashes are due to not having the EP required but I'm fairly sure the noep version should work with the base game.

Thanks for your report and comments!

The errors have stopped on exit as long as I tell the toddler/child to ride. But if they ride it autonomously, they still get this error on exit.

Did you install Bon Voyage? I see that the problem seems to be in the personal globals. It seems maxis has recoded the globals that control animations and no longer have a fallback animation, which is causing all kinds of problems with custom content. I have spent several days trying to figure out what some of these changes are and what can be done to fix them.

Thanks for your report and if I can figure out a way to work around this I'll repost.

No, I'm still running Seasons.

First, every time a Sim exited the bike or tricycle, an error occured. Then you fixed it. But the fix only works when a Sim is directed to ride it. If a Sim uses it autonomously, it still always throws an error on exit.

The animation you used is so creative and I love how it turned out. Thank You so much.

I'm not sure I saw Bon Voyage mentioned so I'll test it out for you and see how that hold out. I have all EPs and All SPs.

For me, this item only appears the first time I hit miscllaneous ( and it appears all by itself. as if it is the only item in miscellaneous). If I hit any subcategory, including chidren, the bike is not there. Anyone else had this problem? I removed the other tricycle thinking they were conflicting, but I still can't get to this item when I want it!! Check your catergorizing-- there has to be something there making it do that.

Please redownload the file. The one you are referring to was my first version. Unless you only have the base game. I will be posting a new non EP as soon as I get it done.

Hi Rebecah,
I've been using your trike for a while now and haven't had any problems untill this little one appeared and stumped me. (I have all EPs except Bon Voyage, incase that matters.)
I had my toddler riding the trike, and his teenage step sister was playing with a remote control car at the same time. They didn't interfere with each other, until my toddler got off the trike and it disapeared! It just wasn't there anymore! I figure it might have something to do with the remote control car and the trike being from the same object.
I wasn't really that fussed because my toddler grew up that evening and he is the youngest, so i didn't need the trike anymore, I just thought i'd let you know about my mysterious disapearing tricycle.

Other than that, this mod is by far my favourite, I love all your other toddler things too!
