Midnight at Central Command



Happy Friday, All.

As I write this, it's just a little over a year since I released Midnight at the Cryo Lab, the most awesome sci-fi content ever created for The Sims 2. I've since expanded on the set, posting cool expansions both here and at BHSA, and really locking down a seamless set of both direct Maxis replacements and original storytelling props, for whatever your play style is.

This is my 27th Midnight at... project, and possibly the best yet. It has 78 spankin' new objects for setting up your very own command center, starship bridge, or secret base.

Overview

The Midnight overproject represents a return to my roots: sci-fi stuff. I won't make any promises I can't keep, but I'm feeling inspired, and the first project is a good solid framework for the next few (probably much smaller) installments. My original vision was much like Modular Furniture Series 4. I wanted to build a whole set of objects, walls and floors, and build mode elements that blend seamlessly with each other. The difference is that whereas MFS4 was utopian and clean-ish, Midnight is more gritty, for creating sinister, dystopian sets. The objects are made from scratch by me, and thoroughly tested. The file includes:

Build Set: a door (plus coordinated diagonal object), a sweeping double staircase, two deco corner masks, and a new railing (the rail matches the original colors and both recolor packs).

Commander's Office: Two styles of desk, a computer, a desk chair, a living chair, a sofa, an end table, and a coffee table.

Conference Room:  Five big tables, a chair, three display cases, and a skilling object.

Freestanding: A set of freestanding consoles. Includes two tables, two skilling objects, and a storytelling prop.

Holograms: A set of six deco objects intended to be used with the consoles.

Pillar Stations: Two skilling objects,  seven deco objects, and two floor lamps. For building pillars.

Seating: Two command chairs and two duty station chairs

Side Consoles: Two unique wall lamps and six tables

Standing Consoles: A set of six skilling consoles.

Wall Panels: A set of six unique deco wall panels intended to be used with the side consoles.

Recolors: Nine new recolors for the basic door glass.

The set also includes an invisible computer (for use with the side consoles), a posebox, and a handy collection file for finding everything.

First and foremost to Coni, dear friend, excellent listener, and willing alpha tester.

Action News: Freedom of the Press, Pt. 1


Happy Friday, everybody!

Intro in English:

Action News: Freedom of the Press is a two-part follow-up to the Action News set. Part 1 is a set of vehcicles, made into storytelling props, complete with slots, special effects, and poses. While the original set is fairly complete as is, I thought it could benefit from a full-sized OB (outside broadcasting) trucks to complement the little news van and more detailed helicopter meshes.

While I consider this a sister project to the Combate Moderno series, and it dovetails nicely with Combate Moderno, Action News is an independent initiative, and for this project, the presentation will be primarily in English and the posebox strings are written in English.

Introducción en Español

Action News: Freedom of the Press es una continuación en dos partes del conjunto Action News. La primera parte es un conjunto de vehículos, hechos accesorios para la narración de historias, completos con slots, efectos especiales y poses. Si bien el conjunto original es bastante completo, creo que podría beneficiarse de unos camiones OB (outside broadcasting) de tamaño completo para complementar la pequeña van de noticias y mesh de helicópteros más detalladas.

Si bien considero que este es un proyecto hermano de la serie Combate Moderno, y encaja muy bien con Combate Moderno, Action News es una iniciativa independiente, y para este proyecto, la presentación será principalmente en inglés y los comandos del posesbox están escritos en inglés.

Credits:

First and foremost, to Coni for the original concept, for much of the creative energy that went into the project, for the design of the news station logos, for constant feedback on how to improve the project, and probably for about ten other hings I've neglected to mention.

The meshes for the OB truck and Eye in the Sky were provided by CadNav.

The heavy news copter mesh was provided by Edson

Midnight at the Quartermaster- Underwear Set 3


Happy Friday, folks.

About

My 25th Midnight at.. upload! A new underwear set for the Midnight overproject. Because your Sims can't be expected to walk around in their uniforms all day, here's some practical, comfortable underwear for them to relax in.

Overview

The Midnight overproject represents a return to my roots: sci-fi stuff. My original vision was much like Modular Furniture Series 4. I wanted to build a whole set of objects, walls and floors, and build mode elements that blend seamlessly with each other. The difference is that whereas MFS4 was utopian and clean-ish, Midnight is more gritty, for creating sinister, dystopian sets, and this clothing and accessory set is intended to be a reflection of/ complement that.

This set includes a partial set of new body meshes for all the standard Midnight body sizes. A lot of the nude/underwear body meshes out there seem to have über-pokey nips, and that didn't seem practical for underwear. Also, I'm a huge fan of Warlokk's Rio body shape, but it never got updated to X-Hi Res/Sexyfeet. Now that I have a bit more experience in editing body meshes, I tried to address these issues.

The downloads include six male and nine female underwear sizes for Command and Medical divisions, for YA-Elder. There are two versions available: Tooltipp'd and BSOK'd. Please download only one. The mesh pack is necessary, and must be downloaded separately.

Marvine for the original groundwork that went into the Slim Bodybuilder (SBB), Bodybuilder (BB), Huge Bodybuilder (HBB), Athletic Girl (AG), and Bodybuilder Girl (BBG) body shapes.

Warlokk for the Fashion Model (FM), Rio, and CPU bodies

Bloom for sexyfeet, and for the meshes I extracted for AM and AF

Because I'm something of an organization freak, I made sure everything was organized, binned, and categorized. There are two versions available to download: Tooltip'd and BSOK'd. Choose whichever you prefer.

You can find the everything at Sim File Share. Only select one version.

Midnight at the Quartermaster- Swimwear Set 1


Happy Friday, folks.

About

This is a new set of swimwear for your Sims. It's the same clothing featured in Midnight at the Commisary- Sports and Fitness Essentials.

The clothing is available for YA-Elder, and as always comes in six male and nine female sizes. It's available as Swimwear.

Overview

The Midnight overproject represents a return to my roots: sci-fi stuff. The Project 2395 uniforms were good for the time that I made them, but I've learned a bit more about body meshing since then and these sets are intended to be an overall improvement.

The uniform mesh is an mashup of the regular smooth top underwear mesh and the FT track pants.

Midnight at the Commisary- Fitness and Sports Essentials


Happy Friday, everybody!

Overview

The Midnight overproject represents a return to my roots: sci-fi stuff. My original vision was much like Modular Furniture Series 4. The difference is that whereas MFS4 was utopian and clean-ish, Midnight is more gritty, for creating sinister, dystopian sets. The objects are made from scratch by me, and thoroughly tested.

This is the fourth of probably approximately six "neutral" (non-divisional) sets. The commissary project was a larger undertaking than I originally thought, and had to be split into three parts. As per usual, it blends seamlessly with the objects from the other Midnight sets.

Fitness and Sports essentials is a medium-sized set for use in building exercise areas, pools, spas, and locker rooms.

The file includes:

Exercise Machines: Functional exercise equipment for body skill gain.

Locker Room: Lockers, a new shower mezh, and a community toilet.

Spa: A sunken hot tub, a sauna, and two massage tables.

Sports: A soccer net, a basketball hoop, and a TV for your gym wall.

And as always, a collection file for easily finding your new objects.

I've included the master objects for the base, monitor, cushion, and glass in a separate folder. You don't need them if you already have Midnight at the Cryo Lab, Midnight at the Crew Quarters, Midnight at the Decontamination Chamber, and Midnight on the Surface installed.

Credits:

First and foremost, to Coni, whose assistance as an alpha tester was vital for getting this project finished.

Honeywell for the base object used for the punching bag

NixNivis for the base objects I used for the community toilet and exercise mat

Lord Darcy for the fix of Targa's SupaFridge (the base object for the refrigerator)

Targa for the original work that went into the Supafridge

Combate Moderno: Suministros Pt. 5


Happy Friday, everybody.

Intro in English:

First, a huge apology for taking so long to develop Combate Moderno. I'm doing my best to update several project series, and so I don't always get to this one in a timely manner. Hopefully, this will change soon as I get some new object and uniform sets out.

Suministros Pt. 5 is the fifth of a few posts featuring random military supplies. I converted the Maxis AM/AF military outfits to several popular bodyshapes using Lifa's WSO actions, and made a set of uniforms based on textures/elements provided by Coni. This set matches "Pattern 4" from Part 1, and is designed to be combined with it.

The set includes three types of military uniforms, in five male and five female sizes. There are two versions: Tooltipp'd (for those who don't have BSOK) and BSOK'd (for those who do). Please download only one version.

Combate Moderno was originally conceived by my super-friend, alpha tester, and collaborator Coni. She is currently writing a Spanish-language military sci-fi story and was in dire need of props and accessories. The rest of the post will be in Spanish, but feel free to leave questions and feedback in English as well.

Introducción en Español

Primero que nada, una gran disculpa por tardar tanto en desarrollar el Combate Moderno. Pongo mi mejor esfuerzo para actualizar de varias series de proyectos; por lo tanto no siempre me alcanza el tiempo para actualizar este proyecto. Con suerte, esto cambiará pronto en lo que desarrollo algunos juegos de objetos y uniformes nuevos.

Suministros Pt. 5 es la cuarta de unas cuantas publicaciones con el tema de suministros militares. Convertí los uniformes militares de AM / AF de Maxis en varias tallas de cuerpo populares utilizando las acciones de WSO de Lifa, e hice un conjunto de uniformes basados en texturas / elementos proporcionados por Coni. Este conjunto coincide con el "Patrón 4" de la Parte 1 y está diseñado para combinarse con él.

El conjunto incluye tres tipos de uniformes militares, en cinco tallas para hombres y cinco para mujeres. Hay dos versiones: Tooltipp'd (para aquellos que no tienen BSOK) y BSOK'd (para aquellos que lo usan). Por favor, descarguen solo una versión.

Combate Moderno fue originalmente concebido por mi super-amiga, alpha tester y colaborador Coni. Actualmente está escribiendo una historia de ciencia ficción militar en español y le urgían materiales y accesorios. Mi primer idioma es el inglés, pero con gusto acepto comentarios y retroalimentación en español.

Creditos:

Primero que nada, a Coni por la concepción del proyecto, por las texturas y las instrucciones en su uso, y por auxiliar en las pruebas.

A Lifa por las acciones WSO que use para convertir los mesh.

A Psychosims por la conversion original del mesh que no lleva cartuchos (incluido)

SynapticSim por los bodyshapes de LBB y SBB v2.

A Marvine por los bodyshapes AG, BBG, BBv2, y HBB.

Warlokk por el bodyshape de Rio

Poppeboy por el bodyshape de FitChick
