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.
Hi all!

After seeing numerous requests for a trampoline, but being unable to mesh something satisfactory without ending up with something that looked like a black table, I ended up making this instead.

The jumping castle is based on the sofa, so kids through adults should be able to use it. It has had all the non-jumping related options removed, and the "Play" option renamed to "Bounce".

The object is recolourable in two parts, the base/flat sides in one part and the corner pillars in another. You are welcome (and encouraged) to recolour this, but I'd appreciate you waiting a couple of days before sharing any recolours, until I'm reasonably certain that everything is working as it ought.

There are two attachments, the object itself (the gold and blue one) called jumpingcastle-3103, and a set of recolours (the red, blue and green one with the plumbob icon on the base) called jumpingcastle-recolours.

Some statistics:
Verts: 332, Polys: 602

Special thanks to Numenor and RGiles for their assistance in the recolours thread. :D

Known Issues
- Sims will sometimes walk through the back half of the castle. (While I have increased the number of placement tiles from 2 to 4, I still haven't made sense of the "footprint" block which I think is the part that stops this from happening.)

Enjoy everyone!
