Venitian Gondola - part 2
The version V2 of the gondola as decorative and useable on water of Maxis lakes is finished!
Already some weeks ago I offered to make a Venician Gondola for the project "Downtown Venice" that was started at that time by Bluetexasbonnie.
More information to this project here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=169680

This object is cloned of a the Venus sculpture and should work in all combinations of the game. After installation to your download folder you can find it in game within the decorativ collection of statues.

Statistics: faces - 3 468; vertices - 4075

When I had the idea to make a gondola I didn't expect that there were to follow more details than I thought. The Venician craftsmen developed a type of ship with several charactoristic features. I did some research and found a web-site of the American Thom Price (unfortunately the link to this site is broken). He described how a Venician gondola is built.
The mesh for the Sims2-game is a compromise because the mesures of the boat wouldn't fit very well in the game. I hope it looks in spite of this well enough. (length:width=11,05m:1,42m)

This object may be used by lotbuilders, but please don't upload to the Exchange! Please don't make recolours of the ship's body, because there exists an old Venician law that determines that gondolas have to be black! Of course you can try to change the decoration.

Have pleasure with it!
