PSA: About Animations and NPCs

Since this is a question I’ve been asked a couple of times, and also something I’ve seen come up on other sites:

Contrary to popular belief, animated objects don’t always require an NPC to run; whether or not they do depends on the complexity of the object and not just on the animation. Simple animated objects like mine do NOT need an NPC.

But if any object of mine did spawn an NPC (which I say again, they do NOT), I promise you it would say so very, very clearly in the upload post. I know there are creators/modders out there who like to foist undisclosed features upon their downloaders *glances towards MATY for no apparent reason*, but I’m not that kind of creator.

Two Kirk-style Bookcases with Deco Slots


(Oil lamp by Parsimonious, potted plant by Ohbehave, other somewhat repetitive deco by Maxis and me.)

Category: Hobbies -> Knowledge
Cost: $600 (wall version), $650 (standing version)
Poly Count: Low poly
EPs Required: None – base game compatible (BG version)

Sometimes when I’m watching a film or a tv show, I come across something I know I’ll just have to make for the Sims. That’s what happened when I spotted Kirk’s black-and-chrome bookcase/display case in The Wrath of Khan – the thing was just screaming to be simmified. So I made like the Borg, and complied. 😉

Animated Starship Mobile

Category: Misc. -> Children
Cost: $50 (one-tile) and $51 (two-tile)
Poly Count: High poly! (2,100+)
EPs Required: None – base game compatible

High poly warning! This object has almost 2,200 polys! If you are on a slow computer, you might want to limit the number of mobiles on your lot, and I recommend you keep the animation turned off if it makes your game lag.

No matter what they say, it’s coffee (or possibly tea, Earl Grey, hot), not dilithium, that makes Starfleet go ’round. So of course your Trek Sims – and your Trekker Sims – need some coffee mugs to clutter up their desks!
