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 "TRANSATLANTIC" BY NUMENOREAN ENGINES
Ownable Limousine - Nightlife only - by Numenor

-----------------------------------------

06 FEB 2006 - Added Italian and Spanish translation for the catalogue description. (Thanks for the Spanish translation to HarlotBoy).

-----------------------------------------

I bet you all have recognized the Limousine from the secret society

Many people have made new ownable cars, and I wanted to experiment something new: a car having dimensions completely different from the standard ownable cars. I had to solve many problems (and other are not solved, yet, see below); moving the bones, dealing with the fog effect, adding a "slot" to accomodate the fog...
It was harder than I thought But the result, in my humble opinion, is astonishing: when you'll see your sim driving such a gigantic vehicle, you'll be surprised, too :D

All the car functions are fully functional, including making out and woohoo-ing.
Only, if you plan to build a garage for it, remember its dimensions! It needs three additional rows of tiles to the front, and two row to the left side (to allow manouvring).
The "Transatlantic" is recolourable: I look forward a pink recolour from a good-willing user!

Known Bugs
1) For some strange reason, the footprint of the car is determined by the underlying driveway (when you place a car on the driveway, they become a whole object...); therefore, sims are allowed to pass through the front part of the car.
2) Due to the heavy bones translations, when you drive to a community lot, the loading screen depicts the Limo, but without the front wheels.
3) Since it's not possible to edit the game effects (FX files), I couldn't create a custom "fog" effect for the Limo; instead, I had to use one of the existing ones. I tweaked its position at best, but if you look closely you'll find that the fog doesn't cover exactly all the windows.

Beside this bugs, I hope that thare aren't any more. Please report if you find something strange.
I enjoyed very much this car, and I hope you'll do the same

That's a great idea!

I did find another error though. After I bought one for a sim and spend some time with it, I clicked for the sim to drive it to work the next day, but the sim just "froze" like a statue and I lost control of that one sim that was ordered to "chofur" the kids to school. Luckily, I didn't save the game and got him a Maybach instead.

I'm very well fascinated hearing that my sims can have a limo now.

regards, xsoburg

Is there any chance of this being modified to work with your 'drivable cars without nightlife' mod?

It's lovley but I'm having a problem with it. If my sims try to interact with it, that particualar sim will freeze and can't move even if you try to cancel out the interaction with the limo.
