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


My newest lot is kinda a quirky one It's set in the year 2050, NASA has established a series of colony/research stations on Mars for small crews to research the planet for several years at a time. The huge glass domes provide sunlight for trees and plants that provide oxygen to the crew. There's also two super-efficient solar panels to provide electricity. There is small building for conducting research, and includes the career reward objects for the Science, Medical, and Show Business career tracks. Here are some interior pictures:




The base is on a 5x4 lot. It costs $226,714. The lot contains custom terrains by grammagail1956, TheSeraph9000, and SterlingDT.

The lot also contains custom floors and a terrain by me.

  • 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.

There are many myths about planes. Not many people know them. My favorite one is the propellor one: The propellor is on the front of the plane, it cools the pilot, because when it turn off, the pilot starts sweating.

I'm sorry, I have no idea This lot has been play tested and checked with Clean Installer. Everything used on the lot was included... Do you have Uni, Nightlife, OFB, and Pets? That's the only thing I can think of...

I still can't get it to install. I have all EPs. [sigh] Why me?

EDIT: There might be something in the file that is corrupted. Could you try and repackage the lot and upload again?

Hi i love this lot but can anyone tell me how CokeBuilder did these 3 things:

* The Domed Clear Roofs.
* The Foundations on the second level.
* And the slanting solar panels.

Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers.

My game never fully loads the house, after 45mins of loading- I figure somethings wrong and shut down the game. I have all expansions - any ideas?

Well, sometimes the lot doesn't download completely, so the file is corrupted. Unfortunately I find it common. Try getting Q-Express, because it helps solve this problem.

How did you get the roof like that and make the solar panels slanted?
