Modular Furniture Series 4- Bridge Set 1


Just put the final touches on this massive project yesterday. I honestly didn't think it would get this big, but I went a little crazy with the recolors. I'm really happy with it.

This is the fourth installment of my modular furniture set. This one includes lots of cool bridge objects; enough to make the MSD (Master Systems Display, or alternately Master Situation Display, an interface located on the aft wall of the bridge on most starships, that displayed the status of the ship at a glance). There are also some components for making some basic bridge consoles. The set takes advantage of the repository technique for the base texture and wall panels, and I have included the MASTER OBJECTS ONLY (no recolors). Recolors for these objects can be found on the RECOLORS THREAD.

There are 40 new objects. All told, there are 321 recolors (please see descriptions below). The set includes:

With a few exceptions, most of the recolors are "anyships". They don't have class-specific textures and can be used interchangeably. The few exceptions are MSDs and engineering panels for various ship types. These are clearly labeled.

The recolor sets include:
Bridge components- Recolors for the backplates, wedge bases, dividers, and runners
Cardassian- Cardassian displays. There are two subfolders: Cardassian Cool Green (a deep green texture, reminiscent of some of my earlier Cardassian recolors) and Cardassian Cool Red (similar to Cool Green).
Coatl- There are two subfolders: Coatl Alliance and Coatl Coalition. They have different aesthetics, and it took me a hella long time to recreate the Alliance colored plumes and display graphics. I'm no Dr. Michael Okuda, but I'm pretty proud of my work. For those who don't know, the Coatl are one of the principle races in Blue Heaven Stories.
Galaxy- The good old Galaxy-class LCARS we know and love. There are even a few bonus panels for sickbays, observation lounges, and engineering.
Galaxy Cool Blue- A few quick 'n dirty slider recolors of my Galaxy-class textures. Reminiscent of my Talon-class recolors.
Icthian- Another race from Blue Heaven Stories. I think these came out pretty.
Intrepid- A whole mess of Intrepid-class recolors (but perfect for Prometheus or Nova bridges as well). there are bonus recolors for sickbays, science labs, and observation lounges, too.
Klingon- A mighty set of Klingon recolors.
Sovereign- Cool new Sovereign-class textures; also perfect for Akira or Luna bridges. Includes bonus recolors for sickbays, observation lounges, etc.
Veron- Yet a third race from Blue Heaven Stories. The Veron Graphics are trulu unique.

As always, I've spent massive amounts of time playtesting this set. I tested each object individually, and hammered out all the kinks. As far as I've seen, there are no glitches and everything works exactly as it should as far as slave textures, joint alignment, placement, etc. Please report any issues.

A few notes about the project: Series 4 is a bit of a misnomer. Prior to this set, I've only made two other modular furniture sets. But as it complements the Cargo Bay Series 4 set, it seemed incongruent to name it Series 3. Unless otherwise noted, objects are base-game (See more specific descriptions below).

The focus of this set is to create realistic crew quarters, kitchens, bridges, etc. The furniture is designed to be stacked together, giving your sims' bridges, observation lounges, sickays, etc. a built-in look, for more realistic sets and backdrops. As I am more of a storyteller/ dollhouser than an actual player, my main focus was on how good the objects look in-game, but they have been thoroughly playtested and work well for players who focus on gameplay, too.

Please read carefully: The single bed and data console from the crew quarters set provide the master textures for this entire set. As the repository technique is used, I have included the repository objects so you don't get flashing blue textures in your game. To keep the size of the file reasonable, THE RECOLORS FOR THESE THREE OBJECTS AREN'T INCLUDED (see above).

The wallpanels from the crew quarters set are also included here, to complete the wallpanel set. They also appear in the collection file.

Note: all files have been Compressorized.

Wallpanels, Status Bars, Backplates and Runners

The wallpanels first made their appearance in the crew quarters set. In this set, I added a floor-height panel to complete the full wall. The runners complement the wall panels and can be mixed and matched with them. The MSD runner is meant as a filler between the backplate and the bottom of the display panels. The status bar is the same height as the full-length runner but uses different textures. The backplates are designed to be placed below consoles or tables and cover the back wall.

Modular Furniture Series 4- Modular Bathroom


This project was about halfway done when I shelved it in May, so it was just a matter of picking up where I left off. I'm really happy with this set.

A few notes about the project: Series 4 is a bit of a misnomer. Prior to this set, I've only made two other modular furniture sets. But as it complements the Cargo Bay Series 4 set, it seemed incongruent to name it Series 3. Unless otherwise noted, objects are base-game (See more specific descriptions below).

The focus of this set is to create realistic crew quarters, kitchens, bridges, etc. The furniture is designed to be stacked together, giving your sims' heads, bathrooms, and spas a built-in look, for more realistic sets and backdrops. As I am more of a storyteller/ dollhouser than an actual player, my main focus was on how good the objects look in-game, but they have been thoroughly playtested and work well for players who focus on gameplay, too.

As the repository technique is used, I have included the repository objects so you don't get flashing blue textures in your game. To keep the size of the file reasonable, THE RECOLORS FOR THESE THREE OBJECTS AREN'T INCLUDED. They can be downloaded from the crew quarters post, HERE!
