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.

DAMNETH YOU V1ND1CARE! I just lost my Sims 2 Nightlife and had to uninstall it, why do all youre building require Nightlife? *weeps hystericaly* X-(

I'm a little randomly insane, well, thats a lie. I'm quite normal, just ask my pet monkey Herman. *pets mid-air* Isn't he cute? He tells me to kill everyone. He is VERY persuasive. *stares at crazily* *slowly reaches for knife*

Truly amazing. I'll have to remember to do the mail during the commute. Its a long walk to the mailbox. I am inspired! I didn't know about all those angles. WOW! You might as well call it the "Heart of Gold!" Marvin? Zephod? You guys here?

Could you ever make something as amazing as this compatible with the base game? :3

Don't worry, as soon as I get the expansion packs (which is soon), I shall download this! MUAHAHAHA!

P.S. Could you ever make a ship from Halo, like the Pillar of Autumn?

I wonder if there's an easy way to make this great house work a little better with Seasons? My sims are always jumping up out of bed to let me know that it's raining or snowing on them. And it does get a little too warm and cold inside during summer and winter. I guess it would take totally rebuilding it, but I can hope, right?

Feel free to PM me with career requests. I don't guarantee I'll do any particular one, but I'll consider each.

FennShysa – Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to do so. To “weatherproof” this ship, Seasons would need flat tiles in order to recognize a boundary and unfortunately the majority of the ship’s tiles were warped with the CFE with no spare gap between levels to lay flat tile. It would take rebuilding it in order to block out the weather. Sorry about that.

Very awesome work. I've always wanted a spaceship for my alien sims but all my attempts to create a house that looked even remotely space-ship like were pretty much failures. This will be great for my scifi families. Thank you!
