19/06/07 An add-on as been released with doors and matching wall for the Embossed window sets by stonetower Here

Hi everyone,
I've been struggling, hesitating and doubting a lot on these ones... And it isn't so easy to let it go..
So please,
enter The Sci-fi Build set divided in :

Walls
The "Outside" serie ( 12 panels) 2 are designed to match the "Embossed Window" from stonetower @MTS2 mesh here.
The "Inside" serie ( 8 panels) should work for corridor (Hi Echo :-)
The "Inside clean" ( 7 panels) Brought in a before weathering version.
The "Pipes" serie ( 8 panels) kind of stuff I'd like to be able to make in 3D.
The "No pipes" serie ( 8 panels) 'cause the previous is a bit overloaded.
The "Panels" serie ( 11 panels) with or without pipes.
The "Electro" serie ( 10 panels) hope I can bring "animation" for these.
The "Bonus" serie ( 8 panels) sometimes more is not enough...
In total 72 walls.

Almost each wall-panel is seamless, and should be combinable in a way or another, with the help of the "transition" walls. The "Outside" and "Inside" series are separate and are not made to be mixed with others series.
Each panel is different, should you find some redundant, just delete..
Everything is to be found in siding, for 1§ a piece.

Floors
Path 4x4 floor (4 pieces) designed for hallways floors.
Path corners 1x1 floor (8 pieces) designed to make crosspoint.
Various metallic 1x1 floor (10 pieces) for other parts of the room.

Ceiling
Recolours of the very precious JGWitheus visible ceiling @MTS2 Mesh here
Sci-Fi Ceiling (4 pieces) to match the atmosphere.

Terrain Paint
Moony crater terrain. (4 pieces) All seamless and combinable. Virtually made.


if you plan to use the whole set, You'll probably need the "Sci-fi_COLLECTION_PixelHate.package" as well.


Links for objects in pictures
Xanathon @MTS2 with the Light-Mounted Panels and the column from the Borg Collection ( but you'll find so many great SF material there, you better check the all profile.
Sgoobysnacks @insimenator.org with the Sci-Fi arch&column set and the Stasis Chamber (lots of things to find, also)
The Antigravito Chair from moolio
Fat D's Design Kit
Ceiling lights are from Sandy @ Around the Sims 2

Some parts of these texture comes from people who share their creations on the net and allow the use of it (list on request). Thanks to them.
The bases are most of the time good photography sources, always free for use.
The rest of the bits are produced with the inconsiderate use of filters in Photoshop and degradations due to my drawing tablet.


Comments, criticism and feedback are always good food for me, please feed me !

Great-looking stuff! The only thing I don't like is the cheap price, there isn't much challenge in playing if you can get walls as great as these for such a low price...

Dude, these are very Battlestar Galactica-like. Excellent job!

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

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I'm not a big player, so I don't really keep that aspect in mind. How do you evaluate the price? The amount of work put in, the style of the wall, the age state ? My walls are most of the time old and worn so I guess low price is coherent...

Please, feel free to adapt the prices to your liking. And thanks fo the compliment.

Evaluating the price is a tricky thing, but when the cheapest Maxis walls are 2 § (I think), and those are just paint put on the walls whereas these have pipes and details which even if they look worn would still cost (and in the game some of the stone walls, that are amongst the msot expensive ones, also look pretty worn).

OK, I actually learned to use homecrafter and seeing how easy changing the prices of the walls is, my first comment seems kinda superfluous... (Yay now I can make a kickass sci-fi robot shop!)
