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

Hi everyone. Tonight I bring you an airplane that your sims can use. Not to actually fly, but to live in. It was requested by funney250 and Simbuilder8. The plane is fully built on the lot, but there are some extra bits in the in the construction kit pack, including a collection file for easier location in your downloads folder. Also I included a version that's compatible with expansions packs upto Seasons because it shows in the neighbourhood view, if it works in your game you might want to keep that instead of the basegame version which doesn't show up. You can use it for movies or as a living space for your sims, or as a community attraction such as a restaurant or nightclub. There is some issue with the lightning during the night, the lights are not strong enough like in a normal house. The plane was cloned from a statue, and technically speaking, the sims are outside. It will also snow, raind and hail on them if you have seasons. It is better to turn winter season off as it takes a while for the snow to melt. Well, hope you like it. Enjoy!

:. For crew uniforms, please check out this thread by lemontour.

Lot size: 5x5
Price: approx. 60.000 $imoleons
Created and tested for base game compatibility with Base Game Starter Pro by Numenor.

Poly counts:
Door - 14 faces / 16 vertices
Fake wall - 98 faces / 92 vertices
Stairs edging - 20 faces / 24 vertices
TV - same as Maxis
Plane - 6930 faces / 6528 vertices
Luggage compartments - 97 faces / 92 vertices
ceiling pieces - 59 faces / 52 vertices
Seat - 1179 faces / 956 vertices
curtains - 72 faces / 74 vertices
ceiling lights - 84 faces / 128 vertices
stairs - 86 faces / 84 vertices
Spotlights - same as maxis

I would like to thank Numenor for the Base Game Starter Pro and for teaching me a ingenious trick to make the plane clickable only on the wings so it doesn't interfere with the gameplay inside; Echo, whose awsome carpets I have cloned for the overhead luggage compartments and ceiling pieces; CycloneSue from TSR for the wonderful modular stairs tutorial; and Maxis for the great game and for putting in the dancecube which has helped me a lot with some of the measurements.

!!! In order to make the stairs work in your game, you need to put the file 2007_CrocobauraAirplaneModularStairs.txt in your Scriptorium_ModularStairs folder if you're using the Scriptorium or you need to copy the text inside it at the bottom of the modularstairs.txt file from this path:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts

Lot Size: 5x5
Lot Price: approx. 60.000 $imol

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • 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. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

TV's are painted on the back of the seats, and working TVs can be placed over them. I figured you might not want working TVs in front of each and every seat.

This is completely freaking amazing! I'm speechless here! *downloads*

I can't believe my eyes when I realized it is a house lot. At first, I thought it was another one of your mesh airplanes.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

This is amazing! Its truely a work of art. Tell me, would it be possible if you could recolour the plue sections of the texture to red? That way, it would make it a hell of a lot easier for us Machinima Makers to use it in a movie.

Very cool, croco, it's super! For some reason I'm not surprized of this your creation: since you uploaded the crashed plane I was waiting for something like this one, a natural evolution of your creativity. Thank you forever. Kiss and ciao

woah...that is crazy awesome. That took some serious meshing. Makes me want to get into lot creation. But for now, I'll stick to object meshing.

What a great idea. You did a fantastic job and obviously put a lot of work into it.

Well Done!

Very cool - and perhaps you could build an invisible room around the living area, so that snow won't get to the sims?

I didn't download it only because I mostly just build houses, but the work you've done with all of this is just SO huge that I had to click the 'Thanks' button! Good luck creating more!
