The Death Star


DESCRIPTION
Requested by an old friend for his sci-fi story, this is my “sim-ified” adaptation of the Death Star from Star Wars. Some of the floor plan amenities include the docking bay, tractor beam control area, prisoner holding cells, causeway, and command center.

For design reasons, there is no entry point into the space station, and so you will have to either utilize the teleport ability (found in the Bon Voyage ep) or use the MoveObjects On cheat in order to place them inside.



- Lot Title: The Death Star
- Lot Category: Residential
- Lot Size: 3X3
- Lot Price: $64,117
- Furnished: Partially furnished
- Lot Played/Tested with Cloned Lot: 1/1 -- days
- Hack-free (checked via Clean Installer)
- Created with these Expansion Packs: All up to and including Free Time
- Created with these Stuff Packs: All up to and including Kitchen & Bath
*NOTE: The Stuff Packs are NOT required to install this lot if you do so with the Sims2Pack Clean Installer, found here: http://sims2pack.modthesims2.com/ . Please note that installing in this manner will result in the absence of one fence (from H&M). However, this fence was placed on accessible areas and can be easily substituted with another one.

*NOTE: My door recolor didn’t package with the lot and so I’ve included it as an optional download in the secondary rar. Just place the recolor in your Downloads folder and replace the two-tiled doors with it.





*NOTE: Please DO NOT upload this lot to the Exchange and/or any pay sites.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 64,117

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.

Uh... Wow! Awesome.

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

Great "Lot"!
For those folk whose Sims haven't obtained the teleport ability I suggest downloading either Carrigon's or Monique's Teleport hacks.
Moniquee's is here at MTS2 http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=60666 note: not updated for Freetime yet,rug works ok
and Carrigon's is at http://www.sims2workshop.com/FrontPage.php you need to be registered to download.

Another alternative is to get Paladin's "site to site" teleporter found at http://www.simwardrobe.com/ in his Sims2 downloads under "Star Trek"

They call me The Seeker.
I've been searching low and high.

A visionary building, V1nd1, something that only 2 or 3 artist-builders could create.
No need to say that the building itself is impressive, as well as the details of walls/floors/furniture ... but you also added a unique atmosphere, a particular touch, which makes me go into this place in silence. Thank you, your talent it's a gift for all of us. I'll learn more while visiting these rooms ... Kiss and ciao!

Holy! I don't even play scifi in the Sims but as a Star Wars fan I am simply awestruck. I can just see Luke and the gang battling it out inside those halls. Amazing work!

Ummm... Wow. This is truly stunning work, sister. Once again you've shown the rest of us that we need to go back to building school. This is a good reason for upgrading to Free Time.

also on the entry: i know there's a one tile lift available (round our square) that can b stacked and the tile it occupies on the 2nd floor changed to a transparent one. (it's available on this site, matter o fact.)

installed it and there's one thing that will prevent me from using it, since i like a view of the street (to see cars and people on the lot): the external surface of the place doesn't collapse like external walls should. Secondarilly, i don't like waiting for sims to walk relatively long corridors/walkways and yes, with the insiminator i don't have to (teleport enabled),yet i'd have to radically alter the interior to accommodate day to day things that the game repeatedly prods you to purchase for your sims.
High concept stuff and i just don't seem to get along well. Nice to look at from a distance, yet i wouldn't want to use it. On closer examination, it sort of reminds me of a rounded off Borg cube. I know there are lots of people who eat this stuff up, so again i say outstanding job.
