This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
And here it is: The Borg Collection.

Some objects, walls and floors resembling the interior of Borg installations.

9 Floors
6 Walls
2 Columns, one tube-design and one "reactor-thingie"
Decorative objects, one square column, a wall mounted gizmo (animated) and a regeneration chamber with plasma-anim
1 Electronics
2 Lights (lightcolumns)

And a collection to spot those easily in the catalog (important: you have to put that into "My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Collections\").

There are no hacks in this, but if anyone is able to code BHAVs for example into the regeneration chamber so that it works as one (sims standing in it to "sleep", regenerating energy), feel free!

I did not include the Borg-skins since I'm not satisfied with them. If a gifted skinner is able to make good ones, best with implant based on glasses or the like, that would be great.

Some of the textures and meshes were extracted out of the game "Voyager Elite Force 1" and at first I was reluctant to post those objects here, since there are copyrights from ravensoft on those. I wrote a mail to Ravensoft and asked if I could use those but got no answer. I saw, however, that the textures and objects were used by modders for Elite Force and other games without any complaints from Ravensoft and so I guess it should be okay. Furthermore, the game is really old now, from 2001.

If someone from Raven does not like those objects to be shared here, please inform me and I will remove them immediatly.

Other meshes are completely by me, the alcove for example. The textures were reworked and stitched together by me, as were the animations. :D

The polycount of all objects is really low.

Dear admins: There are not only objects but also walls and floors in this, but I did not find a better place to put this complete package. As it is a set with new meshes, I placed it here. If you think another place in this forum is better suited, feel free to move the thread!

Have fun! :howdy:

Wow those look great!!! These will be perfect for movies as well!! I agree with the fact that it would be great if a modder could turn the regeneration chamber into actally making the energy to go up while they stand up in it or whatever.. but that might be harder than it sounds.. Anyway, this is a great collection and will definetly be going in my game right away!!!

Oh wow... this is beyond amazing. You truly are a master, and thank you for sharing your work. *bows*
As I've mentioned before I've had sims that have ended up sleeping while standing up, so that would suggest that some clever modder might be able to add that function to the alcoves eventually.

You have Simply Outdone Yourself! These are Awesome Xanathon! I think your Borg Skins look great. You should upload them. I think im going to re-install Elite Force & give it another good play. I Love that game! Will you be pulling any more goodies from Star Trek Voyager Elite Force? I Certainly Hope So

its seems like you could use that awful looking generator thingie from aspiration rewards, you know the one that looks like a steel tub with wires and whatnot. It regenerates sims if I remember right and its a standing animation which is pretty funny in itself. I bet that animation and regeneration would look great with this! hmmmm....

I downloaded these files, but I can't seem to find them in my game. All I can find is the wallpaper. Where are the objects located?

@nectere: borg are usually pretty "turned-off-robot-like" in their alcoves.

Odd, here it works fine. You clicked on the new Borg-collection, that appears and see only walls & floors? Can anyone say something about this? does it happen on other installations too? Or can the others see the collection and all objects in it?

happy simming,
