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.


The Borg have landed, and are ready to assimilate your sims! Well actually there will be no assimilating going on, but a whole lot of individualistic fun! This is The Borg Cube as seen on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Voyager!

This functions just as a remote control plane would because it was cloned from the Maxis remote control plane. Because of that, it requires Freetime EP. It is found in electronics/entertainment and costs 450 simoleons.

Important!:

You Must have both of the included files in your downloads folder for this to work!

Mesh Details:

Poly Counts Total in Main Cube:
12
Poly Counts Total in other GMDCs:
7
Poly Counts Total in Control:
388

Here is a Youtube Video showing sims playing with the cube in action.

Huge thank you to Rebecah, this wouldn't be possible without her. She pointed me in the direction of fixing the self-referencing, as well as got my texture working in game for me, when before it was a flashing blue-green atrocity, and she also made the youtube video (but allowed me to share it on my account).

Special Thanks to MaAlet for testing it for me, I wasn't sure about a few things that couldn't be found out in my own game.

Polygon Counts:

Rebecah for being awesome!

What a fun and delightfully silly idea! All the little Simmies in my Trek 'hood will want (and get) one, that's for sure. Too bad I can't have one IRL, too.

Great idea, thanks!

Where does the pain come?
Where does it start?
I know not...
For I have no heart...

Oh wow! Thanks for sharing this, Jon.

One of the few really cool things I can show my boyfriend (who doesn't play but for some reason likes to watch lol...) and surprise him with something neato. Thanks
