Is there a bicycle somewhere?

Recommended Posts

I have searched the help files and the library but can't find a bicycle object. I have some of the Bonus Libraries but not all of them. Can someone point me to where I can find one? 

 

Thanks,

Yes Susan. Just do a library search for 'Bicycle'. A 3D one came up for me - I assume you should have one too. The path is: Exteriors/Vehicles/Recreation Vehicles/Bicycle.

Cheers.

2015 does not have a  Recreation Vehicles Section or Bicycles ( why I suggested 3DWH)  but you could Export that Library for her and post it to the Thread so others will have it too.

Ah sorry, I just assumed the newer versions would be inclusive of all previous features.

with the library open if you right click on the bicycle in the library tree you should get the option to export it , export/save to your desktop, then attach the file to your post just like you do pics.

 

Library items seem to come and go year by year , you probably have People too , they are no longer included either but there is a thread here on 3D People that I and David  have posted files too.

I seem to recall reading a previous forum post about the same subject, and a staff moderator replied that all previous library items were included in newer product versions ( plus new items added).

 

Guess NOT.

 

P.S. The library bicycle is decent looking, but somebody forgot to add the pedal 'arms' !!

Not at all Jo, there are no people in newer versions and I looked at the Library Kristine mentioned last night now I have access to HD10 again and there are all sorts in there like a plane , a helicopter, other Rec.Vehicles ,Playing fields,Sports Equip. and Toys etc, which you have no doubt being on V10 , though I am not sure when New titles lost what. Perhaps we should start a new thread for Library Items only?

 

Rec. vehicles including the bike Rec.Vehicles_V10.calibz

 

Aircraft Aircraft_V10.calibz

Some of the items were probably bonus libraries that needed to be downloaded when they were available.

BUT all of this stuff should still be made available to the newer products!

At least in Pro 10 they are all in the basic Pro Content Library ( unless I imported then from HDA9?).

 

there were only ever 8 bonus Libraries for 10. and 34 Manufacturer's Lib.

 

I agree about the Libraries but they only usually go back 3 versions for library files on the website  when 2016 comes out in June/July I suspect the 2012 files will disappear same as 10 's did last June , so I'm glad I backed them up. Its a ggod idea to export the Libraries and save them / back them up to DVD so you can install them again if for example you have a HD crash , a fire , or burglary etc as HD won't provide those files anymore.

As far as I know, the content that used to be available all still is, but much of it has been reorganized/renamed in the newer versions, and some stuff that used to be installed by default got moved around in to Bonus catalogs. 

For 2015 software, the "Bicycle" symbol is in the "Vehicles" bonus download in the "Specialty/Other/Misc" section.

Strange cos when I did searches there on bike or bicycle I got nothing, same with the Plane and helicopter and the other items I mentioned above but as you say they are there.....

 

Wonder if it is my IE settings effecting the search?

Mick - I did a search in my Pro 2015 Library Browser, not on the website, to determine that is where the symbol is now located.

Thx Kat. I don't have 2015 but I checked the website for a bicycle/bike before I answered originally and found nothing , I guess the Website is structured the same way as your 2015 Library , which as you mentioned is totally reorganised now though I don't know if it includes ALL old libraries

I have Home Designer Suite and downloaded the "Vehicles" bonus Catalogs and it included a bicyle under Recreation Vehicles.

I thought I had downloaded all of the Bonus free libraries, but I had indeed missed "Vehicles." I would have thought the bike would have been in the Recreation items, but it was in Vehicles. 

 

Thank you for all the replies and the great suggestions on how we can use objects that we don't find in the libraries. Maybe someone will add different types of bicycles! :)
