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.
Finally, I've got it up... The nimbus on wich the sims can sit on. (comes from the great idea of XxHalfBloodPrincexX (see thread http://forums.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=60369) but this broom is the replica of the Nimbus 2000 that we can see in Harry Potter movies...)

I haven't tried it without University, but I don't know why it wouldn't work, post any bugs, wants, questions, remarks, insults =p you want.

And for all those Harry Potter fans out there (just like me!), I've made a recolor of the nimbus to have the nimbus 2001 also (black one)!!! It is only a recolor so you have to get the basic mesh wich is the nimbus 2000 one (brown one).

It's cool!
But for some reason I don't find it... where is it hiding?
Or is it because I don't have University yet?

I hope it does fly, mybe ifsomeone could edit it and try to mae it fly then it will be even more ingenious! Excellent job. Oh by the way, someone has actually made a wand. Just type in 'Harry Potter request' in the search forums part, and then you will find a wand thread.

I suppose you could do something similar to what they did to make the drivable motorcycles... That's about the only way I could see the brooms being 'flyable' given what is currently known about animations and the like.

These brooms are great! thanks so much. Also i thought you might like to know that there are wands already, i downloaded mine (male and female accessories) from Pronupsims its called: MESH_rosematABaguette 021105 (128KB), the re-colour comes labelled as Baguette-Hermione-Pronupsims, these work for any age male and female. Also there is an opening painting door which slides sideways to reveal its entrance with the 'fat lady' on made by BobL on this very site, called MTS2_165385_Boblishman_BobL_SlidingFatLadyDoor-allgames-col-en (253KB) he also does a sliding bookcase: MTS2_166878_Boblishman_BobL-SlidingBookcase door-allgames-col-en (238KB) I hope this helps, all these files work brilliantly by the way. I would love to see the quidditch hoops though, i'll search for them right now!

Default Apartment life
can you do the recolour of the broom from The Sims 2 Apartment Life? 'cause there are witches and you can fly on it (actually it's not that good as you can only go to work, school, etc. and can't play quidditch but it's a good start, isn't it?) wow, what a long post :LOL:
