Thank you very much for reporting, anon! ⭐
Over at LeeFish, we usually have a themed challenge each month; it can be something specific, like decorating a certain house, or something more general, like winter. For January, it was suggested that the theme should be Fitness, since January is the month of New Year’s resolutions, and exercising more/getting fitter/losing weight are popular ones. So, in line with this, I’ve made an exercise mat that Sims aged child to elder can use to gain body skill and get fitter – and if you have Free Time, they’ll gain Fitness enthusiasm as well. And it’s not just for present-day Sims, either; medieval (and other) Sims can use it, too, it has recols for that. 😉 (And yes, I know there are other exercise mats out there already, but I wanted one with my own little quirks, so.)
Update, 1 Jan 2020: PenelopeT has made ten more great-looking recols , yay!
Adult Sims will lie down on the mat to use it (as demonstrated by Yelena in the title pic), but child Sims will prefer to use it standing up. As per usual with my fitness items, once a Sim has three or more body skill points, he or she can also offer and be asked for lessons. Kids can’t teach with this one, but they can be taught:
Of course, the mat comes with recolours – twenty of them, all in all.
First of all, it has an invisible recol, in case you don’t want your exercise mat to be visible for some reason. To make this recol truly invisible, the mat has neither indoor shadow nor sun shadow. Just so you don’t think the lack of shadows is an oversight on my part if you notice it in game. 😉
In addition to the invisible recol, it comes in the seven LACK colours (where the white one is the mesh):
And for Sims who think that plain colours are a bit too, well, plain, it also has ten recols in some lovely colourful patterns by agussgut at Colour Lovers:
And finally, for your medieval and/or rustic Sims, two canvas recols. Nothing fancy, but good for blacksmiths and other types who don’t mind things a bit rugged:
The exercise mat is base-game compatible, unless you have the Kitchen & Bath SP. Then, and only then, Free Time is required. (This is because of an EA coding error I can’t work around – sorry.)
If you don’t have K&B, Free Time is not required.
