Hi everyone. Tonight I bring you an airplane that your sims can use. Not to actually fly, but to live in. It was requested by funney250 and Simbuilder8. The plane is fully built on the lot, but there are some extra bits in the in the construction kit pack, including a collection file for easier location in your downloads folder. Also I included a version that's compatible with expansions packs upto Seasons because it shows in the neighbourhood view, if it works in your game you might want to keep that instead of the basegame version which doesn't show up. You can use it for movies or as a living space for your sims, or as a community attraction such as a restaurant or nightclub. There is some issue with the lightning during the night, the lights are not strong enough like in a normal house. The plane was cloned from a statue, and technically speaking, the sims are outside. It will also snow, raind and hail on them if you have seasons. It is better to turn winter season off as it takes a while for the snow to melt. Well, hope you like it. Enjoy!

I would like to thank Numenor for the Base Game Starter Pro and for teaching me a ingenious trick to make the plane clickable only on the wings so it doesn't interfere with the gameplay inside; Echo, whose awsome carpets I have cloned for the overhead luggage compartments and ceiling pieces; CycloneSue from TSR for the wonderful modular stairs tutorial; and Maxis for the great game and for putting in the dancecube which has helped me a lot with some of the measurements.

!!! In order to make the stairs work in your game, you need to put the file 2007_CrocobauraAirplaneModularStairs.txt in your Scriptorium_ModularStairs folder if you're using the Scriptorium or you need to copy the text inside it at the bottom of the modularstairs.txt file from this path:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts


Lot Size: 5x5

Well, couln't resist to use it for another episode of my story. But i noticed a little flaw. Nothing serious but it can be irratating. I call it 'the curse of the last row'. See the pictures and have a look about the guy in the red circle.





There is one row missing in the front view.

Lol, you made the floor too long or you didn't place the plane properly. From your pictures, I think that the last two sqaures must be showing quite unaesthetically through the tail of the plane. you should read the building instructions, the floor must be 26 tiles long and 6 tiles wide, and the stairs must be placed on the 7th tile from the front of the plane. After that you can partition it as you like. I'm attaching pictures to show that it there's no last row curse. :D

I love this idea, but an idea for something like this could be to have an invisible roof (of course i have no idea where this could be found. but i'm sure there is one) for seasons users. (this is a thanks/feedback)

Having a closer look to your pictures i noticed my mistake. I gave to much space to the first class. Thank you for the quick answer and the pictures.

As i promised: the flying plane. And this isn't the small one.


Well, yes, it is only the empty plane. How do i do that? I guess you know how to use the 'move_objects' cheat? Ok! Find a plain square and put a two-storey column on it. Move another column on top of the first one and finally add the plane above the second column. Then remove both column and you got the illusion of the flying plane. That makes a great effect in a story.
