Midnight at the Medlab



Happy Friday, All.

It's been a long journey, and thank you all for making it with me. It's been just over a year and a half  since I released Midnight at the Cryo Lab, the most awesome sci-fi content ever created for The Sims 2. The Midnight at... project is about 65-70% done (unless I tack on more stuff), and up to now, I've made at least one set of furniture for every division except Medical.

This is my 46th Midnight at... project, and possibly the best yet. It has lots of cool stuff: 71 brand new objects including furniture, deco, build objects and Decorgal-style accessories. Perfect for building a hospital, sickbay, secret research laboratory, etc.

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 new door and three new windows (plus coordinated diagonal object).

Cinematic Tools: Decorgal-style posing props (10 different accessories, for right or left) and a new posebox.

Lab Equipment:  29 new objects, some functional, some storytelling props.

Medkit: 13 new deco objects.

Recolors: Five new recolors for the basic door glass.

The set also includes a handy collection file for finding everything.

Credits:

First and foremost to Coni, long-suffering friend, muse, and indefatigable alpha tester.

Nightshift3D for a good portion of the models that went into this set. I love this artist's style, and I went and purchased the Sci-Fi Medical Gear and Odysseon Station Medical Lab model packs so that I could use them with this set.

Combate Moderno: División Mecanizada Pt. 1


Happy Friday, everybody. 

Intro in English:

División Mecanizada is a multi-part collection of modern military vehicles (made as storyteller's props, not as functioning vehicles). Part one includes eight vehicles with posing slots, deco slots, and special effects.

Combate Moderno was originally conceived by my stalwart friend and long-suffering alpha tester, 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

División Mecanizada es un conjunto de múltiples partes de vehículos militares modernos (hechos como accesorios de narradores, no como vehículos funcionales). La primera parte incluye ocho vehículos con slots para posar, slots de deco y efectos especiales.

Combate Moderno fue originalmente concebido por mi amiga incondicional y probador alfa número uno, Coni. Actualmente está escribiendo una historia de ciencia ficción militar en español y tenía una gran necesidad de accesorios y accesorios. El resto del post estará en español, pero también puede dejar preguntas y comentarios en inglés.

El archivo incluye:

Ocho vehículos militares codificados con slots y efectos especiales con sus componentes (escotillas y discos de radar, en varios estados). También incluye una caja de poses básica y un archivo de colección .


Y por supuesto un archivo de colección.

Creditos:

Primero lo primero! A Coni, por el concepto original, por hacer las pruebas alfa, y por ser la mejor amiga del mundo.

Midnight at the Commisary- Rec 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.

I sincerely apologize for the delay in getting this one done; other projects took priority. This is the fifth of 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.

Rec essentials is a medium-sized set for use in building recreational and leisure areas, chapels, and crew lounges.

The file includes:

Rec Area: All kinds of leisure activity. Functional games, electronics, and entertainment objects.

Theater: A big screen and furniture for setting up a theater.

Chapel: A set of objects for setting up a small chapel.

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, or Midnight at the Decontamination Chamber installed.

Credits:

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

3DCadNav for the rest of the meshes

Echo for the functioning slot machine

Midnight at the Quartermaster- Swimwear Set 3


Happy Friday, folks.

About

This is a new set of swimwear for your Sims. 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 Chemlab


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.

Midnight at the Chemlab is a medium-sized set of furniture and deco objects, for setting up unique chemistry labs and secret bases.

The file includes:

Glassware: 70 total pieces. A big assortment of flasks, beakers, carboys, and test tubes, for setting the scene.

Lab Furniture: 23 unique items. Racks and storage furniture for the glassware, tables, as well as functional consoles, scanners, and microscopes.

Also includes chemlab glass recolors, and of course a collection file.

I've included the master objects for the base textures in a separate folder. You don't need it if you already have Midnight at the Cryo Lab.

Dr. Pixel for the original object that would eventually become the skilling consoles

Katy76 for the original microscope object
