Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Be sure to check out the Community Skate Park by Comedy711 to use with: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthre...005#post1812005

Added a 2nd version to split top and bottom of skateboard for recolors.

Please only download 1 version. GUI's are the same for both files. Both zips have all 3 needed files included.

lilmidgeb requested a rideable skateboard. So I have this for adults, elders and teens.

They gain body skills, fun and increase their fitness while riding it.

It is found under Hobbies/Exercise for $50.

Face count is 1588.

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.










Additional Credits:
FeeEssen for her rideable helicoptor found here:

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 given me with my creations.

Thanks to all of you that click the thanks button, and leave your comments. I really appreciate them very much.

Oh, that is very cool! Very, very nice work. Just one little comment - maybe you could make the skateboard larger so that the feet are on top of it? It's an awesome job though, thanks very much!

I was going for the effect of their feet straddling the edges.

You always amaze me.You make some of the best items!
Thank you so much for using your time to make our game so much more enjoyable and amusing. I can barely turn on my pc, so if not for the generosity of folks like you, my game would only have the items provided by Maxis.
Thank you and all of the artist out there that create for us.

I love it!
One question though - I would love to recolor it, but is the bottom the same texture as the top? If not, where would the bottom texture be in relation to the top (which is, ironically, at the top of the texture image) :P
Thank you in advance, and thank you for the creation and sharing of this oh-so-useful object. You rock! :D

The bottom is the same as the top. Would you prefer that it not be? I could change that.

Well I hate to speak for everyone, but I *would* like to have grip-tape on the top and a design on the bottom. I've got a few wicked board designs that I'd like to use on it, so if you could do that, it would be really awesome!

I hate to be a pest, though. So if it's not any trouble, then I'd like that! :D

Heh, when I first saw this I went "why would any young lady ride around on her skateboard topless?" I must be getting old, all the colors are starting to run together.
