Hi everyone again

Update: 01 APR,

Due to game mechanics you need to have the EPs the creator has in order to use a lot. I have all EPs and have applied the OFB patch.

There was a terrain problem (flashing blue) with the early files I posted.
'NCC-1701-A Enterprise' & 'NCC-1701-A Enterprise after OFB patch 1'.
(Thanks to csq246 and others that provided testing and feedback !
Thanks to Niol for highlighting the terrain paint problem !)

http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=142042

I used an early version and spent another 7 hours re-doing the terrain and from reports it appears to be fixed with the latest file.
New Lot file: NCC-1701-A Enterprise Terrain Fix.Sim2Pack
The terrain now differs slightly than that shown, (although pretty similar).

Lastly I am sorry for any inconvience this may have caused those people that downloaded the original files ! :sorry:
(Especially most humble appologies to those on dial-up)

You might also want to check out Xanathon' view screen for the bridge, (came out after lot creation).

Well I have spent four weeks working on my latest project, Enterprise 1701-A.
Even the terrain took me over 20 hours to complete !

Firstly a Huge thanks goes out to Xanathon and his wonderful Star Trek objects !
I guess you could say that this lot is dedicated to him for his contributions to us simming Trekies.
I's also like to thank all the other's work I have drawn on to complete this project.

Before any die hard trekies cough and splutter, I have taken a bit of liberty with the timeline in respect to equipment, (eg: an intrepid class warp core, LCARS displays etc).

The lot size is 5x6 and the lot contains a vehicle and dirveway so it will requires Nightlife to play.
The cost of the lot is $213,529 (Pretty cheap for a starship really)

The Lot's terrain contains a swimmable lake and a 'Cave', with twisiting pathways to get about it.
(Visitors may consider the archway of the cave as the front door).

The ship has an engineering section on two levels in the lower hull,
In a rather tight fit at the back of this section is the Shuttle bay, (this one is deco only).
Ladders from engineering go up to the Nacelles, (the narrow thins at the back of the ship for those that are wondering).
The Nacelles themselves are empty at present (they are only three tiles wide).


The main living section of the ship is in the saucer section.
There are all the things you might expect:
- The Bridge,
- Captains Ready Room and Quarters,
- Senior Ranks Accomodation, (3 single bed rooms)
- Junior Ranks accomodation, (Shared with 3 alcoves with 1 single bed each)
- Mess hall, (kitchen/dining)
- Sick Bay
- Transporter room (where the ships is accessed)
- Brig
- Crew Recreation Lounge

--- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- ---

The Lot has been checked with Clean Installer and should contain no Hacks.

--- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- ---

Due to the Height of the lot it might pay to check out camera mods like that done by GunMod

I never thought I would see someone do so much work for a Star Trek Themed house. It looks just like the ship, in every conceiveable way. Things like this are the reason why I joined MTS2. I can never thank-you enough for sharing this with us. 5 stars, but you deserve many many more.

I'm lost for words! I'm no star trek fan, and have never seen an episode, but I can really appreciate how much detail you have put into this! I can rightly see why the terrain alone took 20 hrs! You have just worked and worked nonstop to achieve perfection - in the form of this! 5 stars! And for anyone who knows how tough I am, they should know that i barely ever give out 5 stars. It takes something REALLY brilliant to get 5 stars from me! Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winnner!

Yeah... alright, you can PM me to request a house I suppose... Might take a while though as forewarning...

Playing with Enterprise crew is not my thing, but I have to say that your work is fantastic. The conception, the details (one of the pictures seems to be extracted from the movie, with Kirk, Spock, Sulu and even Uhura), the extremely hard work... Congratulations!

sugarbug, it isn't all that simple:

The problem is, Nightlife installation completely overwrites the core game system files (University didn't do that). So even an empty lot packaged with Nightlife will crash the base game and University
