This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
27 JAN 2009 - UPDATE - SIMSTONE MOBILE
Now the Simstone car also works with Numenor's "Cars without Nightlife" mod

01 AUG 2006 - BUGFIX - GRILLED DINO SLICES (again)
Fixed a bug that caused errors and "jump bugs" in non-OFB games.
Also tweaked the required cooking skills: now serving the grilled slices requires the same skill than preparing a single portion.

27 JULY 2006 - MINOR TWEAK - MAMMOTH SHOWER
Just a minor tweak: the "rear externalizations" are a bit less frequent...

26 JULY 2006 - BUGFIX - SIMSTONE MOBILE
Fixed a bug that prevented the sims to use the car to go to work or to community lots.
Also, fixed a little bug in the catalog (now the car can be recoloured as a whole, it's not split any more in 2 separate subsets).

25 JULY 2006 - BUGFIX - GRILLED DINO SLICES
Fixed a bug that blocked autonomous cooking by the sims.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Default Vehicles and Neighborhood Objects

Car UPDATED 27.01.2009


Notice: The Simstone Mobile requires either NIGHTLIFE, or the "Drivable Cars without NL" mod.

On the other hand, the DinoDigger works in any game configuration.
It is a Neighborhood decoration: you can find it in the Neighborhood catalog only, and it can be placed over terrain, roads and even lots!

Default Edible Foods
SIMSTONE PLATES



NOTICE: These plates are NOT buyable objects! They are NEEDED for all the "edible" foods to work: you MUST have them in your downloads, in order to use the Simstone Food (Bronto Leg, Dino Leg and Dino Slices).

Since the plates are not stand-alone objects, they are NOT RECOLOURABLE.

***

BUYABLE BRONTO LEG



FEATURES
This is a buyable food, i.e. you can't cook or prepare it: you can buy it ready-to-eat from the Buy Mode catalog (section Misc -> Misc). Just buy it, place it on a counter or table, and the sims can go immediately to grab their slice
If you have OFB, the Bronto Leg can be placed in the refrigerator and sold to customers. You can even sell single portions (you need a sim to grab the slices from the leg).
Up to 10 portions can be grabbed from a single Bronto Leg: perfect for Simstone Parties!

RECOLOURS
Due to the complex structure of the food, the Bronto Leg is NOT RECOLOURABLE.
***



COOKABLE DINO LEG



FEATURES
The Dino Leg (unlike the Bronto Leg) must be prepared, in order to be edible (it has a custom ingredients tray).
The Leg is a lunch/dinner food, and it doesn't require an actual cooking (Sims eat it raw), so no stove or grill is required to prepare the Dino Leg. Therefore, the only way to serve Dino Leg is to click on the fridge.
This means also that, if you have OFB, you will NOT find a "Make / Make Many" option for it (because only stoves have that option, and the Dino Leg does not appear on the stove menu). Nevertheless, once prepared, it can be stored into the OFB refrigerator. It is also available in OFB restaurant menus.

RECOLOURS
Again, the food can't be recoloured.

***



GRILLED DINO SLICES - FIXED 27 JULY 2006



FEATURES
The Grilled Dino Slices is a "full-feature" food that must be prepared (custom ingredient tray and prepare animation), cooked on a grill or stove (raw/cooked/burnt texture) and then... eaten (correct "morph mesh": the slice slowly "disappears" as the sim eat it, and the serving plate gradually empties as the sims grab portions).
In an OFB game, you will find the usual "Make / Make Many" options by clicking on the stove.
Note: it's a "grill" food, like the Maxis hamburgers, and therefore it will be available only in the afternoon/evening.

RECOLOURS
Don't even mention it

Default SimStone Career
So, you've installed the latest mammoth shower. Your record player is fine and dandy, and your kids are safely asleep in the turtle shell crib after a day playing with the Dino-In-The-Box. You've just finished your bronto leg steak, and feel something just isn't quite right. You need a job. And what job do you go for? The SimStone career of course!


The SimsStone career incorporates every aspect of a typical Stone Age town, from the people who shovel the dung to the people who head the Water Buffalos Lodge. Some levels include

Dung Gatherer (Lvl 1)
Animal Appliance Engineer (Lvl 5)
Flintmobile Mechanic (Lvl 6)
Rock'n'Roll FM’ Radio Presenter (Lvl 9)
and, of course, the top job, Pre...{Data Corruption, Data Corruption}...ub. Swell level eh?

Clothing

Clothing? Would you expect Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble to go to work dressed in suits and ties? (Well, I expect some of you would, but I'm going with the majority of the population on this issue )


To install clothing, you need the following files and folders-
SimStone- Clothing files (1-3)-SF.package
SimStone- Clothing files (4-10)-SF.package

The files in the folder 'SimStone Meshes and Clothing' must be extracted to your downloads folder. If it prompts you to overwrite, select yes (not no, definitely not no, as the files are the same as the ones made by Tiggy and marvine).


Car

A taxi? A limo? Even a helicopter? What vehicle should transport you around SimStone on your day-to-day buisness? The two seater flintmobile, that's what!

The flintmobile is a different version to the four seater flintmobile, in that it looks different and isn't buyable. Instead, it appears as a normal carpool and picks you up as any carpool would. It overwrites no other cars. To install, place the file
Exnem Carpool.package
in your downloads folder, and it will appear as a normal carpool.


Reward

All hard working caveman deserves a reward for their continual hard work and effort. If you disagree then I'm sure your sims are probably plotting to overthrow your game and leap out of your screen like something from the Ring.

The reward is the bird and turtle record player, downloadable as a normal object in lower down in this thread. To install it, you need the file named
Career Reward-BobL-Nmn_SimStone_RecordPlayer.package

To get the ArcheoSnake remote control to appear when operating the device, you need the ArcheoSnake file installed as well (not included). for more details, see below (on screen, not under your computer)

The device will appear at level 5, when you are promoted to Animal Appliance Engineer (a job that provides a lot of work- some things animals see can be quite disturbing )



Career info
**Top pay for the career is $1,950 a day, 3 days a week (which is more than some mammoths earn in a year!)
**The career and all its associated files will work for any EP combination and all have unique GUID's.
**Careers come in a range of delicious flavours- chocolate, strawberry, raw granite and melted plastic.
**Chance cards are fully complete and stocked with a variety of rewards and downfalls for picking right and wrong choices.
**At level 9 there is a sharp increase in the amount of charisma points needed for promotion- I suggest you work on building charisma points early on in the career.

Enjoy! (You'll sure need the cash to pay for all the new furniture and items!)

Default Bedroom/Nursery Sets


Although this solid stone-framed bed may look uncomfortable, thanks to the ingenious use of newly discovered dinosaur feathers, the mattress will ensure that your Simstone Sim will have a great night's sleep....in fact, they'll sleep like a rock!


Recolours
As for the bedding, both beds borrow the Maxis textures from the Colonial Double Bed: recolour the Colonial bedding and the recolour will apply to all beds, including the Simstone ones.
A "TigerSkin" bedding recolour is provided in separate file.
The frame, on the other hand, is contained in the Simstone double bed, and is shared with the single bed: create a recolour for the Simstone double bed, and the recolour will apply to the single one, as well.
Two additional frame recolours can be downloaded separately.
The Simstone Dresser is autonomously recolourable.

Poly count
Double bed: 4264 faces / 3214 verts
Single bed: 3028 faces / 2399 verts
Dresser: 2319 faces / 2811 verts

Default Bathroom Set
[CENTER]
27 JULY 2006 - MINOR TWEAK - MAMMOTH SHOWER
(The "rear externalizations are a bit less frequent...)

FEATURES (for both mammoths):

You can find the LARGE Outdoor Shower HERE

- Idle animations: the mammoths move the eyes and - every now and then - move the nose to sip some water; obviously, drinking so much water during the day causes occasional "wet surprises" from the... back end
Keep a mop at hand!
PS: keep the game volume up, to enjoy the funny sounds that come with the animations

- Placement: both mammoths can be placed outside a house, with their head passing through a window; placed this way, they can be used as indoor shower, while not taking the whole space of the bathroom (hey, they are mammoths, after all! ) - The Simstone "Hole in the Wall" windows are specifically designed for the purpose.

- Dress changing: the big mammoth, as said, is intended to be an outdoor shower; therefore, the sims will change to swimwear (and not naked) while showering. The smaller mammoth is a normal indoor shower, and the sims will shower naked.

- Game Compatibility: both mammoth showers are compatible with any game configuration.

- Recolours: the mammoths are separately recolourable; each package contains its own textures. Three additional recolours are provided (in separate download): green, grey-brown and reddish brown.

- Poly Count: Big shower (9 tiles) : 3716 faces / 2178 verts; Small shower (3 tiles): 4222 faces / 2613 verts

If you have already downloaded the large shower from the teaser thread, then please discard the recolors from the indoor shower file as they will be duplicates.

---
And to make your bathroom complete - there are two sinks and two toilets (see pics below)

Default Kitchen/Dining Set
[CENTER]

BONE O MATIC Stove and Trash Burner

After less than two years since the invention of fire, Simstone Laboratories have finally found the best way to *use* it! The Simstone 'Bone-O-Matic' will let you COOK (a new process that involves exposing food to a mild fire) and also BURN your wastes and trash.
Warning! In some cases, the 'Bone-O-Matic' can also burn your food, but it will be *your* fault, so don't blame us...

Features
The 'Bone-O-Matic' is a fully functional stove and a trash burner at the same time. The fire in the stove lits up (and emits a custom light) when the sims cook or dispose trash; and whenever the fire is lit, the upper stones become hot and glow red. Like any other stove, it gets dirty (and gets dirty quite fast, with all that soot!), and occasionally gets on fire, too.

Game Compatibility
This stove will work in any game configuration, including base-game. If OFB is found, the "Make" and "Make Many" interactions will be automatically included in the pie menu.

Recolours
The stove can be recoloured like any other object; no oddities, this time


STONE SLAB COUNTERS

A stone slab is more than enough for you Simstone Sims to prepare even the most elaborate dish!

The Simstone Counters can host any appliance and any sink, though they look at best with the Dino-Turtle Shell Kitchen sink.
On the other hand, the Dino-Turtle sink can be placed on any counter, including the Maxis ones (the undersink won't be visible with Maxis counters, of course).

Please notice that the sims are well aware that this counter has no doors or drawers, and they won't pretend to open invisible doors when taking pans and pots (like they do with the UNI 'Locker Room' counter...).

GAME COMPATIBILITY
The counters work in any game configuration

RECOLOURS

They can be recoloured in the usual way (it's a stand-alone object).


Your sims will also enjoy the ICE AGE BOX, KITCHEN SINK, and DINING SET to make their experience complete.

Default Electronic/Lighting Items




The set is composed by the following elements, all working in any game configuration:
"FireLine" Wall Torch (must have! includes all the needed textures!)
"FireLine" Wall Sconce
"FireLine" Garden Torch
"FireLine" Fence Post and All-surfaces Lamp


INSTALLATION - WHAT ARE THOSE ".NLO" FILES?:
All the lamps use their own custom light, that is included in the .package, but (due to a game bug) when exiting and re-entering the lot, the light isn't read from the package anymore. Therefore - unless you want to live with this bug - you need to install an additional, separate light definition files (included in the SimstoneTorchLamps_LightDefinitions_DO-NOT-PUT-IN-DOWNLOADS.zip" archive).
To do that, the SCRIPTORIUM is required to enable the support for custom lights, and the provided ".nlo" file must be installed in the "Scriptorium_CustomLights" folder, easily accessible from the shortcut in your Downloads.

If a user decides not to install the light definition, the lamps will work fine, but when the lot is reloaded (e.g. after having visited a community lot), the "diffuse" light will be missing, and the light will not be reflected any more by walls and floors (only objects and sims will be hit by the light).

Please note that this is a game limitation: some Maxis objects, too, have the same problem, and don't emit any light after reloading the lot; but installing the separate light definition solves the problem


RECOLOURS
The Wall Torch is the Repository object: create a recolour for it and it will automatically apply to the whole set.




SNAKE REMOTE
NOTICE: this is NOT a buyable object; you will NOT find it in the catalogue.
This remote control is needed for several Simstone electronic device to work properly. In particular, the devices that need the Archeo-Snake remote are:
Simstone 'Stylobird' Record Player
Rocketeer 15" stand-alone TV set
Stony 27" TV set RO-CK01


If you don't install the remote in the downloads (or you remove it), all the electronic equipment will work fine anyway; only, no remote will be shown in the sim's hand.




IMPORTANT: this object needs the "Archeo-Snake remote control" (downloadable separately) to work properly.

This state-of-the-art Simstone record player has a built in radio too!
Its modern design used the latest dinobird and dinoturtle technology to bring you some real 'rock' music... and because dinobirds and turtles live for a long time, it's guaranteed never to break down...(well, not in your lifetime!)

RECOLOURS
Fully recolourable (except the record, that is always black) using Object Workshop. Stand-alone object.

GAME COMPATIBILITY
The record player works in any game configuration.




Table Phone: The handset is rotated by 90°, so now it rests in an horizontal position, unlike the Maxis one

Recolours: The table phone is slave to the wall one, so that recolours for the latter will apply to both. The rar contains three packages, all required for the phones to work properly.
NB: The recolour feature is better than the CEP one used on Maxis phones: now the handset gets automatically the right recolour when you go to live mode

Default Decorative/Miscelaneous Items







SIMSTONE POLISHED ROCK MIRROR
Hours and hours of polishing the finest highly high grade slate is needed to produce this 'super shiny' surface for your Simstones to check themselves out.

Recolours: the mirror is fully recolourable; when you recolour it, both the solid frame and the semitransparent mirror will be recoloured at the same time.
bulb HINT: when creating a recolour, edit the texture at will, but keep the original alpha channel: this will ensure a proper balance of the solid and transparent parts.

-------
There are many other items here - paintings, curtains, bones, a grill, vases, trees, two dino toys, a trampoline and mushroom chair.

Lot Name: Stonesims_Rs001_AZVALgas

Description:

A. Brief Intro:

AZVALgas is a Simstone version of an actual Flintstone-themed building... But obviously, it's used as a residential building in this instance.

Note:
1. With invisible windows and doors, this building will function as a normal building in terms of game-play.
2. Buildable internally.. Just use the wall tool to compartmentalise it when necessary.


B. Copyright Issues: (Things work out when all criteria are reached at the same time.)
B1. Feel free to decorate/re-decorate it... (Feel free to remodify and if share, you can only claim credits for what you've done on it.
B2. This lot is banned to be for any direct or indirect commercial or trading usage.)
B3. This lot is subject to the group "The Mod Squad"'s redistribution policy.


C. System specifications (when the lot was made):
C1. hack-free (except RGiles' transparent tiles, and Numenor's transparent windows)
C2. some customised contents (check with the Clean Installer; for authors, credits, and links for infos & downloads, please read part H.)
C3. made without any EP (So, EP what and/or what not required)
C4. Running smooth @ build mode & @ play mode in a system (OS = MS-winxp-sp2; P4 3.0GHz; 1Gb DDR RAM; video card = 8x 128Mb) If any problem, welcome to report your system settings for providing info to other readers.

F. File Decompression & Install Tips:
F1. double click on the sims2pack to open it. To install it with Clean Installer is recommended coz you can choose what to install to avoid unwanted or redundant contents installed into your game system.
F2. [No restart of the game] is needed to [install a lot in sims2pack file] and [access the installed lot @ "house bin"]. The trick is by any means to have your neighbourhood screen reload. Say, entering a lot and go back to the neighbourhood screen, or switching to another neighbourhood. After a neighbourhood screen has reloaded, the installed lot will appear in the house bin without the game restart. This is true when the Clean Installer is used.
F3. Floor tiles, wallpapers, terrain paints have to be installed earlier than or at the same time as the lot is installed for them to show up in a lot.


G. Play-tips:
G1. Whenever geting a new house, you can scan and choose for things in the package with Clean Installer before installation
G2. You can ALWAYS check the playability of the lots to your system @ lot-building mode in the neighbourhood screen before playing them.
G3. Should you need, you can play-test it with the cheat "BoolProp TestingCheatsEnabled (True/false)".

I am really tickled that I got to work with such a talented, dedicated, and zany team. Keeping this a secret when I'd come to our forum and find something totally new and amazing posted was one of the hardest things I've had to do.
