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

Requested by Cyclist101 for his science fiction film project, here is The Marauder.

He had asked me to construct a starship which satisfied three requirements: 1) that the ship subtly reflect “aquatic origins,” 2) be built as a military vehicle for his sci-fi marines, and 3) occupy a medium to small lot.

The 3x3 lot is, to the best of my knowledge, hack-free, and requires Nightlife in order to play.

- RGiles’ Transparent Floor Tile Set found here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=34012
- Maxis content
- All other wallpapers, floor tiles, and ground cover were created by me.

*EDIT -- Please DO NOT upload this lot, or any of my other works, to the Exchange and/or any paysites without my consent.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Telgar -- I've read about this bug. Unfortunately, I've never read about what causes it to occur or any other remedy besides using Clean Installer. Daysies provides advice on this specific subject, found here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=86150 . I hope it's of help to you.

Whoa..... dude...... THIS IS TOO COOL!!! Just what i'v been looking for!!!
I bow to you! :bow: If only i could make things like that, i could complete my own sim's story, they are trying to take over the world and they need stuff like this (with an army)! I myself, could never master the "floor constraint" cheat. I must say you are a sim building genuis!

You guys might not have noticed but this is on the official Sims 2 site and is only rated three stars which I think is pretty ridiculous to be honest. So I'd go over and bump up this lot. It deserves a five, no doubt about it.
