Midnight at the Cryo Lab- Recolor Pack 2


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.

This is another team effort. Coni suggested making a set of Steampunk-influenced recolors for the Midnight series, and I ran with it.

This one is a little more extensive than Recolor Pack 1; in addition to base textures, walls and floors, we recolored monitors, bedding, cushions, door glass, clock faces, and even the deco uniforms in the lockers. The entire aesthetic has been completely redone.

There are a total of 10 walls, 10 floors, and 10 base textures divided into two "families", along with a set of fences for each base texture. Since the base texture is the backbone of every object in the set, one recolor allows you to recolor around 200 (and growing every day) objects. As all of the base recolors for each "family" use the same texture for the keypad and border/base part of the map, you can mix and match them.

Additionally, there are three chair/cushion recolors, three Maxis bedding recolors, three bedding recolors for the camping/Midnight on the Surface bedding, three deco uniform recolors, four clock face recolors, nine door glass recolors, and one set of monitor recolors for every major monitor texture (Cryo Lab, Sexlab, Surface (datapads), Crew Quarters, Geolab, and Mess Hall).

The bronze family has more of a glowing bronze/gold aesthetic, whereas the copper family is more reddish. How will you decorate your space station, science lab, or evil lair? You decide.

Note: this is a recolor pack only. The furniture sets must be downloaded separately.

Coni for the idea, for most of the work on the base textures, for the uniform textures, and for probably a dozen other things I forgot. This one's for you, sister.

    1. Hey, there! It was just one of those crazy inspirations. Coni was working on a story that has some Steampunk-ish elements, and there just isn't a whole lot of Steampunk content. So she made a bunch of cool base textures, and I made some retextures of the monitors, door glass, chairs, bedding and so on so that it matched. It really changes the entire aesthetic of of the set without losing its versatility.

      Thanks for the feedback :).
