This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

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!

:. For crew uniforms, please check out this thread by lemontour.

Lot size: 5x5
Price: approx. 60.000 $imoleons
Created and tested for base game compatibility with Base Game Starter Pro by Numenor.

Poly counts:
Door - 14 faces / 16 vertices
Fake wall - 98 faces / 92 vertices
Stairs edging - 20 faces / 24 vertices
TV - same as Maxis
Plane - 6930 faces / 6528 vertices
Luggage compartments - 97 faces / 92 vertices
ceiling pieces - 59 faces / 52 vertices
Seat - 1179 faces / 956 vertices
curtains - 72 faces / 74 vertices
ceiling lights - 84 faces / 128 vertices
stairs - 86 faces / 84 vertices
Spotlights - same as maxis

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
Lot Price: approx. 60.000 $imol

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

all I can say is "WOW!!!" otherwise I'm speechless; It was exactly what I was looking for.
about the wings can sims stand on them? It would be funny to combine this with a flying hack and put it on a sim dressed as Superman, them someone could make a sim version of the superman films.

Love and Light
I love making my sims dance LOL

Open this :

C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts\modularstairs.txt

(may differ depending on your computer.)

And save it to your Documents folder. Then, put in the lines you need to put in, then delete the original in the Scripts folder (or rename it to modularstairs_backup.txt) and move the modularstairs.txt in your Documents folder to the Scripts folder, and it should work fine.

Hi, i know this is a lot to ask for, but maybe you could make it fly? that would be awesome for the game. I have made an airport for it and it looks awesome! thanks a lot for this plane. I can see in the pics that u put a lot of effort in it! P.S. it would be awesome if u made a taxi replacement for a bus. you could also make a bus stop for it at community lots i will now stop talking now bye!

Pretty Awesome! I think I remember a place in Stockholm where they use an old plane for a hotel. This is just perfect. However there's no point in downloading yet because making an entire airport would take a whole year.

please help me! It doesn't work on my macbook!!! I have the base game and all the expansions for mac but when I downloaded the files, the construction airplane kit appeared as .rar files, so I expanded them with Stuffit and then they appeard as "exec" files which means it is a program that only works on pc. PLEASE HELP!!!

Awesum! I like this very much, congrats on getting featured! :D
So does the download come with the plane ready-made or do you have to make it yourself? Because I found all the fake walls etc in my game, but no pre-buuilt plane. Regardless, I downloaded everything except the Alaska recolours.
Thanks again!
#273 Old 30th May 2011 at 8:58 AM
*dropped jaw*

I can just say WOW. Awesome idea. You really got the talent.

Is this kind of building for sims so they could just live in there?
