Testers Wanted: Stargate DHD

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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A Stargate is of little use without either a controlling computer or a DHD, so I decided to make the latter.

The object is by me, the mesh has 1477 vertices and 1480 polygons, that seems as many, but if you consider how many roundings there are in this object, it's not quite that much... The dial-texture was taken from this page and reworked by me.

Have fun and remember the code for earth, so you are able to get back... :D

You can get the Stargate here.

Have fun! :howdy:

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Amazing, thank you a gazillion times! I think I'll go now, and drive the remote control car through my Stargate pretending it's a MALP...

Do you plan on making a GDO in the future, by any chance?

Slynch, Ever see Star Gate? It's A Dialer. Of course, for Sims 2, It's a Decoration, I believe.

You can make a ramp, or stone slab for your gate using the foundations. I just made a 3x5 stone foundation, then used the "move_objects on" cheat to place the gate IN the foundation, so that it sticks out normally. Add some stairs and the DHD and voila! Instant Stargate!

No, I thought about doing only "Gilligans Island"-objects from now on. Maybe "Lost in Space (tv)" or "Time Tunnel"... :werd: :screwy:
