About This File

For years, the members of the National UFO Tracking Society (commonly referred to as N.U.T.S.) have been staking out the government's Area 51 in hopes of spotting some glimpse of the Alien Technology they firmly believe to be stashed away and often tested there. Of course, its all a ruse. Area 51 is just a front to keep all the freaks and crazies in one place where they can be monitored and rounded up if need be.

The real alien research and technology is, of course,at Area 52.

Hidden in plain sight... and literally right under the noses of the good folk living & working in the area. Area 52 has all the appearances of a common working farm... with common farming facilities & implements such as a farm house, barn, tractor, crop fields, electrified barb-wire fencing, billion candle-power security lighting, armed guards and numerous menacing black government-issue SUVs.

Initially, a few of the locals appeared to be a tad curious. So a large sign was erected explaining that the site was NOT an ultra top secret facility... and anyone entering the site would be shot. And that seemed to have cured any further curiosity.

By day... and from the front, Area 52 is an ordinary looking farm with a rustic charm that belies its real purpose. But in the dead of night while the locals slumber soundly and the night air is clear and calm.... an unearthly metamorphasis takes place that will curl your toes and straighten your hair.. Or straighten your toes and curl your hair. Results vary per individual. There have also been reports of nausuea, headache, dizzyness, diarhea, impotancy & rectal leakage.  But those are mostly from the Area 52 cafeteria... shortly after lunch.

Area 52 is a 6x4 Reward lot that is free to plop and even generates some income every month just like the game-default Area 51 reward. But unlike Area 51, Area 52 is not conditional, not a crime magnet, does not make your Sims hate your guts, does not reduce the area to a caldron of bubbling toxic waste... and does not suck the power and water out of your city.  Area 52 is a much more "friendly"  scary government facility.

Beyond the nightly mojo on the surface of the lot, there is of course the vast facility that lies underneath. The lot must be plopped on the edge of your city in order to see the underground complex. In fact, if the lot is not plopped on the city edge, it will be sealed off both from view and a viable air supply. Everyone in it will sufficate and die a most unpleasant painfull death. So for God's sake... plop it right!!

The lot also features a custom query and rotating/random occasional sound effects that can be heard throughout the city. Despite efforts to maintain secrecy, its sorta hard to conceal a sonic boom.

** This lot requires the following dependencies:

MTP SUPER PACK
PEG Security Fencing Kit

Brilliant. What else can be said. It's one thing to have an idea and another to pull it off with total perfection. If I worked for EA and was hiring people to make SC5 I'd see this and say name your price.

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

      Old North Church, Boston, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Built in 1723, this is the oldest church in Boston and is famous for having been the church from which Paul Revere received his illuminated signals ("one if by land, and two if by sea") prior to his midnight ride to warn Lexington and Concord during the American Revolution.
      The church is a national historic landmark and a mission of the Episcopalians.
      This building is modded as a non-conditional House of Worship reward (meaning it can be placed in your city at any time without having met prior conditions).
      It does not over-write the Maxis House of Worship rewards and can safely be used in conjunction with these (or any relotted version thereof).
      Placing this Reward provides R§§ CAP relief, has a park effect, boosts the mayor rating and also provides up to 17 highly desirable civic jobs.
      It is on a 3x3 lot.

      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:

      This download contains TWO file types in two seperate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.
      You must choose only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version.
      If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod.

      A set of turbulences for your rivers and streams.

      You'll find narrow and wide pieces, both in straight and diagonal versions. They all sit on a 1x1 transparent lot and can be combined with PEG-PPond (Tahoe), PEG-Pond and PEG-Stream or ploppable waters by other creators as well.
       
      LIST OF ITEMS
      Narrow Short Straight Narrow Long Straight Narrow Short Diagonal Narrow Long Diagonal Wide Short Straight Wide Long Straight Wide Short Diagonal Wide Long Diagonal
      Each piece comes in 2 variations that plop at random (16 models all in all).
       
      DEPENDENCIES

      ~ none ~

      Recommended to use with Free Waters Mod.
       
      DEVELOPER NOTES

      The turbulences are batted props (instead of the textures used in Vol 01), so there are less straight edges and a bit of overlap onto the next tile.
      You can combine them with any ploppable water and to some extent also with Pond and Stream pieces, mainly the straight items.
      Some of the pieces are also suitable to make transitions between the various available waters - just be creative and find the right combinations.
      There are no other props on these lots - so you have complete freedom to dress them with any Major Mode Flora that suits your theme.

      The Turbulences and Transitions Volume 01 (texture based) is available to download here and is now also an option when downloading from this entry.

      This is my first self made reward. It is a sequel to the three Maxis cemeteries. Otherwise it's quite straightforward.
      It will be unlocked after you have built the three Maxis cemeteries and your city population has reached 120.000 sims.     
      For details see the Read Me.
