This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


Hi everyone. Tonight I bring you an airplane that your sims can use. Not to actually fly, but to live in. It was requested by funney250 and Simbuilder8. The plane is fully built on the lot, but there are some extra bits in the in the construction kit pack, including a collection file for easier location in your downloads folder. Also I included a version that's compatible with expansions packs upto Seasons because it shows in the neighbourhood view, if it works in your game you might want to keep that instead of the basegame version which doesn't show up. You can use it for movies or as a living space for your sims, or as a community attraction such as a restaurant or nightclub. There is some issue with the lightning during the night, the lights are not strong enough like in a normal house. The plane was cloned from a statue, and technically speaking, the sims are outside. It will also snow, raind and hail on them if you have seasons. It is better to turn winter season off as it takes a while for the snow to melt. Well, hope you like it. Enjoy!


:. For crew uniforms, please check out this thread by lemontour.


Lot size: 5x5
Price: approx. 60.000 $imoleons
Created and tested for base game compatibility with Base Game Starter Pro by Numenor.




Poly counts:
Door - 14 faces / 16 vertices
Fake wall - 98 faces / 92 vertices
Stairs edging - 20 faces / 24 vertices
TV - same as Maxis
Plane - 6930 faces / 6528 vertices
Luggage compartments - 97 faces / 92 vertices
ceiling pieces - 59 faces / 52 vertices
Seat - 1179 faces / 956 vertices
curtains - 72 faces / 74 vertices
ceiling lights - 84 faces / 128 vertices
stairs - 86 faces / 84 vertices
Spotlights - same as maxis



Credits:
I would like to thank Numenor for the Base Game Starter Pro and for teaching me a ingenious trick to make the plane clickable only on the wings so it doesn't interfere with the gameplay inside; Echo, whose awsome carpets I have cloned for the overhead luggage compartments and ceiling pieces; CycloneSue from TSR for the wonderful modular stairs tutorial; and Maxis for the great game and for putting in the dancecube which has helped me a lot with some of the measurements.

!!! In order to make the stairs work in your game, you need to put the file 2007_CrocobauraAirplaneModularStairs.txt in your Scriptorium_ModularStairs folder if you're using the Scriptorium or you need to copy the text inside it at the bottom of the modularstairs.txt file from this path:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts


Lot Size: 5x5

How awesome, and nothing seems out of order, it’s all there. Every thing makes sense; you can actually live on this plane. I was wondering how is one to sleep, but my testing Sim showed me, right after she ironically finished her cup of coffee shut of the airplane TV and kicked back the recliner. This is genius, a job well done indeed.
Not actually evil.

What stunning work!

As for it raining, hailing, snowing during seasons, why not surround the plane with invisible walls, invisible ceiling?

invisible floor here

didn't find walls, but maybe an invisible wall covering would work???

Could also try building a giant hangar around it.
Thanks for making this!

I think it snows on invisible floors and roofs too and then it would look even more weird. I'll see if I can put the mesh in a roof clone.

Now all we need are some snakes.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

This is neat - and it looks so cute, a happy little airplane =)

Are there invisible rooftiles that could fix the outdoor issue? Usually, statues tend to clip through roofs anyway, so it might do no harm. *goes searching*

Do you plan on making a train? Because I work for the Austrian Federal Train Company, I'd love to have something like that xD
OK, trains might be a bit of a design problem
