"Nothin' but the rain."




Starbuck doesn't like spoilers!

Please don't post any comments that might spoil any major plot points for others who might not be all caught up! I will happily chat about BSG in PMs with you though.

I realize my temporary retirement is looking a lot more like releasing things, but... well, this is for a dear friend, and has been in the works for a long time. The timing... is intentional, but we won't go into that here.

She is accurate down to the last detail I could make her (moles and all) and she has two new custom meshes created, well, just for her: her hair mesh (which I released a while back, still perfecting the sim), and a thumb ring accessory on her left hand.

The thumb ring works for both genders, young adult, adult, and elder, is multi-wearable, and waterproof, so it's a bit more versatile for use on other sims too.

The accessory mesh is included in the rar file, separate from the sims2pack (while the hair is packed with the sims2pack, thanks to post-Pets Body Shop) so you do not need to download anything additional - all meshes and content are included!

Poly count on the thumb ring is 50 faces, 112 vertices (fracking low).

You may recolour my meshes using my textures - please don't redistribute the meshes or I'll send this badass toaster killer after you.

She includes a modified version of my Idolatry of Flesh skintone in the Light tone. The faces are the same on all the versions so if you choose to breed her, or use the skintone otherwise, the children will resemble her. The adult and elder females sport the full set of Starbuck's tattoos - the Kanji for "choice" on the back of her neck, "bona fiscalia" on her right inner forearm, the beautiful techno wings arm tat on her right upper arm, and the "space invaders" type pyramid thingie on her back. The teen female has only the Kanji and "bona fiscalia" tattoos, no tattoos on the males or kids at all.

The shirt recolour is included, sporting the double-tank, plus dogtags. The pants she's wearing are Maxis, base game. No meshes are required for her clothing at all.

Aspiration: Pleasure Seeker
Turn-Ons: Brown hair, Muscles
Turn-Offs: Servos (okay, I know there's no servos turn-off, but she really should be turned off by robots) :P

omg, HP. She's...perfect...everything about her. Her tattoos are amazingly accurate. I love the thumb ring...everything. She's completely stunning. Thank you so much for all the time and hard work you put into making her. She came at the perfect time. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. You know how much this means to me....more than pretty pixels ever could. *huge huggles*

Thank you, HP, she's fantastic. My boyfriend loves this show immensely (I admit to having fallen asleep halfway through the miniseries ) and I plan on wowing him with your BSG sims.

HP- You've done an excellent job again. I myself am working on a Laura Roslin Sim and a Dualla Sim for the game (which I will make both available) as well as what I refer to as two Cylon Centurion "variations" (I call them variations because of the fact that I am working off of materials that I have available to me).

I hope you will allow me to use this Sim (much like I have asked permission for possibly using the Baltar Sim and using the Six sim) for my machinima comic book fan fiction series I am working on. I may feature Starbuck in a possible prelude story with one of the characters in my fic series.

Excellent work as usual.

I'm happy because there's a Sim of Sandrine Holt for The Sims 2.

I admit I don't know who she is and have never seen the show, but you have captured her so beautifully. I like the looks of both the person in real pictures and your version so much that I'm gonna download her - just as a uniquely beautiful sim.

Thank you for your great work and for being such a positively crazy perfectionist.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!! :-)

She's also my favorite character in the series and I think you did a wonderful job simmifying her. I hope I'm not being a spoiler in saying I can't wait for the next episode.... I'm on the edge of my proverbial seat.

This reminds me when I saw the original motionpicture 'Battlestar Galactica' in the theater. Very stunning yet alot like Starwars. I haven't been keeping track of it because for a while being busy with work and stuff. last time i saw the orignal starbuck, he was stranded on a barren world and never heard of. I could be wrong of his ending though. The new starbuck chick is a stunning work of art. You are in deed an admirable creator.

Wow! Thank you so much for making Starbuck! I, too, am a raging Kara fan and I can't wait to see her in-game. Thanks again!

I tried to install this but got the error message, "This content requires Expansion Pack data that is not installed."

Since only the base game is listed, (and I have the EP's through Pets) I don't know what I'm missing... does Starbuck require Seasons?

No expansion is required for this sim. However, because I have all EPs installed, the game's installer will complain at you. Use Clean Installer or Q-Xpress to install her instead.

What they did to her character pissed me off.

Excellent Sim though, thanx.

I'd love to download your awesome sim, but I'm on a mac. Are there any other options besides Q-xpress and Clean-installer?

Silere - That is a tricky one. What I've done is unpacked the sims2pack so all the files are separate from the sim file, then put all of the individual content bits, the meshes, and the sim herself into a rar file, with no sims2pack file. You should just be able to drop the contents of this rar file into your Downloads folder and use the sim the same as if you had installed her from the sims2pack properly:

Lemme know if that works for you.

Excellent sim! (And I'm sure we'll be seeing lots more of her in the show - not a spoiler, just a hunch.) Thank you!
