This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Hello everybody,
already some weeks ago I offered to make a Venitian Gondola for the project "Downtown Venice" that was started at that time by Bluetexasbonnie. Meanwhile I spent my summer vacation and had some tough weeks in my job. But now finally the boat is finished!

This object needs Open for business because of the object I cloned! After installation to your download folder you can find it in game within the decorativ collection of statues.

Statistics: faces - 3 468; vertices - 4077

When I had the idea to make a gondola I didn't expect that there were to follow more details than I thought. The Venitian craftsmen developed a type of ship with several characteristic features. I did some research and found a web-site of the American Thom Price (unfortunately the link to this site is broken). He described how a Venitian gondola is built.
The mesh for the Sims2-game is a compromise because the mesures of the boat wouldn't fit very well in the game. I hope it looks in spite of this well enough. (original length:width=11,05m:1,42m)

This object may be used by lotbuilders, but please don't upload to the Exchange! Please don't make recolours of the ship's body, because there exists an old Venitian law that determines that gondolas have to be black! Of course you can try to change the decoration.

Two screenshots are taken in Bluetexasbonnie's "Jilly Juggs Massage Parlor". You can get it here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=173602

Have pleasure with it!
