Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is my first set of Neighborhood objects. It includes 24 different planets (5 different types) and a wormhole. (I tried to make a black hole using the wormhole mesh, but it didn't look very good, so I didn't include it.) The space terrain replacement used in the pictures can be found here: http://hideki.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=263668

Class A Planets (gas giants) are usually found in a star's outer or "cold zone". They are typically 50 thousand to 140 thousand kilometers in diameter and have high core temperatures but do not radiate much heat. Low stellar radiation and high planet gravity enables them to keep a tenuous surface comprised of gaseous hydrogen and hydrogen compounds. Examples- Sol 6 (Saturn) and Sol 8 (Neptune)
I've included 2 different sets, with and without rings


Class C planets- Planets of this class are usually found in a star's "habitable zone". They are typically 10 to 15 thousand kilometers in diameter. They have high surface temperatures due to the "greenhouse effect" caused by their dense atmospheres. The only water found is in vapor form. Example: Sol 2 (Venus)

Class J planets- Planets of this class are found in a star's "hot zone". They are typically 1,000 to 10,000 kilometers in diameter. They have high surface temperatures due to the proximty to the star. Their atmospheres are extremely tenuous with few chemically active gases. Example- Sol 1 (Mercury)
Class M Planets- Terrestrial Planets of this class are found in a star's "habitable zone". They are typically 10,000 to 15 thousand kilometers in diameter. They have atmospheres that contain oxygen and nitrogen . Water and life-forms are typically abundant. If water covers more than 97% of the surface, then they are considered Class N. Example- Sol 3 (Earth)
Class N Planets- Pelagic Class N planets are usually found in a star's "habitable zone". They are typically 10,000 to 15 thousand kilometers in diameter. They have atmospheres that contain oxygen and nitrogen . Water and life-forms are typically abundant.

I've also included a wormhole in this set. The wormhole is pictured here:

Class C Planet: 1984
Class A Planet with Rings: 3520
Class J Planet: 1984
Class M Planet: 1984
Class N Planet: 1984
Wormhole: 651

Worth the wait. Definetly worth it...

The blue Class A in the top pic would be perfect for Andor, y'know, the version with rings. But no moon for Andoria, the habital one...

Yet?

j/k, thanks bunches, my second favorite letter of the alphabet.

It might look I'm doing nothing, but at the molecular level I'm really quite busy.

Hello. I'm a bit confused. Would these appear in the neighborhood view up high in the sky, and from a Sim's lot in same said sky at night?

Excellent work ! The Wormhole is particularly impressive. Thank you. (A little star will be neat near all these planets...)

Wow. Thanks for all the feedback, folks.

[email protected] and MooreSpino: There will definitely be a set of stations/starbases as neighborhood objects. I'm kind of holding off until after I do the Jupiter Station lot. I may do more celestial bodies (moons, asteroids, etc.) but the it'll take me a while to get to them.

SAGGG: They appear at "ground level" in the neighborhood view. If you have Nightlife, they would be visible from inside the lot, depending how close the planet is to the lot.

pix: A star? I can try, but that would be tough to make. I've thought about how to do stars and nebulae, but they might be beyond my ability.

Thanks for your help, but that's don't work, maybe it's not compatible with all EP ? How the space ground appear in the game ? Manipulation or something in the game ?

I tested with only sims2 and nothing...
