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.
Fox Mulder knew it - but now the truth isn't anymore out there but right inside your Sims 2 game. Here's the ultimate Alien Embryo Lamp to scare your Sims or even Agent Scully. Now they WILL believe you!

This is of course a lamp, as the title suggests. If it is unlit, you just see a cylinder with a greenish upper part. But if you light it you will see that it is in fact a kind of cryochamber for an alien embryo (have a look at the screenshots). Maybe implanted there by a secret government agency. Or maybe it is a complete hoax to befuddle Fox Mulder. :D

The embryo mesh was taken from, but I had to rework it extensively, mostly to lower the polycount and to change the posture a little bit. Cylinder and textures are by me.

The vertexcount is about 1500 (most of them on the embryo) but if I look at the counts of some of the MAXIS-objects I've seen lately, that is absolutely acceptable.

And if you ever wondered, what the "X" in "X-Files" stands for - now you know... :D

You can use and operate this like a normal lamp (which is no wonder, 'cause it is based on a lamp).

You find it under Lighting - misc.

Have fun! :howdy:

Correction someone has already done it in fact its a BRAIN, HAND, AND SKULL in a jar

I like what I see in this object and your skills would be very useful for helping me. You may want to take a look at this thread. It contains free meshes and uv maps provided by me for users to use for whatever you want ( as well as a few requests ). I am currently in the process of creating meshes that will require the help of a user capable of working with bones within objects and I have very little time to devote to my creations ( only 2 hrs a week ). If you would be willing to assist in the completion of these objects then please give me a PM reply.

You cannot stop the REVOLUTION.

This is the most wickedly cool Alien object there has EVER BEEN!! You did an amazing job on this, it's just so cool, I mean, just look at it. It's a definite download.

This is going to change my whole perspective on how I've Sim'd up until now. I have a new goal. No longer will I turn all of my Sims into Vampires. Now, well now I will turn all of my Alien Sims into Vampires.

Thank-you for creating this amazing and inspirational object and sharing it with us. 5 stars.

Awesome, and to comemorate this, I shall do a stupid backstory on this, Dont expect it to be Dramatic, I hate that.

Hexnop: Man, this whole truth is out thete stuff is aggrivating.
Tednex: Yeah, who does this Mulder guy think he is? Hey, I got a great idea for a prank, big guy.
Hexnop: And that would be, shorty?
Tednex: I'm going to hide in that lamp, and when Mulder comes in, I'll scare the snot out of him.
Hexnop: Okay, and I'll hide behind that couch.
(five minutes later)
Tednex: Sshhh, shh, he's coming.
Mulder: Man, is this place DARK, better turn on the lights.
Tednex:..............Oh, sh............

Cool, it would be spectacular if the Alien Embryo would float up & down & move its fingers...

This is great! I love the fact that you can't see the alien unless the lamp is turned on. Perfect, Thank you. I've also been hoping for a brain in a jar so thanks to asdf too.

Great job, Xanathon!
