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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
08 NOV 2006: ADDED BUYABLE VERSION. Many users asked me for a version of the Hibernator buyable from the catalog; at first I resisted, because I think it's a nice idea to have it as an aspiration reward. But anyway, if people want to buy it from the catalog, well, here is the buyable versio
NOTE: YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH! Choose either the Aspiration Reward OR the buyable version. The buyable version is attached to this post, in the archive "Hibernator_main_(BUYABLE).rar". Install it as usual (the QX works fine, too). Once installed it, the buyable Hibernator can be found in the normal Buy Mode catalog, in the section Misc/Misc, at a price of §15,500 (sorry, but you have to earn it anyway! ).

08 NOV 2006: Also ADDED a new "Glass" recolour made by CyberBob: it's more transparent then mine, and has a transparent base, too (not only the door).

11 SEPT 2006: FIXED the bug that caused the children to sit on the floor after exiting the Hibernator; also improved compatibility with other hacks involving beds by removing the categorizaton of the Hibernator as "bed".
Thanks to TwoJeffs for both bug-fixes.

21 JUNE 2006: Added Finnish translation (thanks Kissamies)

22 APR 2006: Added Spanish translation (thanks HarlotBoy) and Italian translation

27 DEC 2005: FIXED the "jump" bug that occurred when cancelling the "Hibernate" interaction while the sim was still walking toward the Hibernator.

You want to have 10 children and an entire life isn't enough? You want to meet your grand-grand-grand-nephew? Just take a "nap" into the Numenorean Hibernation Cell!

I'm very proud of this object (though it isn't perfect ), because it's definitely the project that I worked on for the longest time.
I've made a completely new animated mesh (created from scratch), heavily modified the BHAVs, edited and adjusted the animations, enabled the colour options... A special thanks to Inge Jones for having pointed me in the right direction with the BHAV that saves/restores the age of the sim.

The Hibernator functions: you can send your sims to hibernate for a chosen time (from 1 day to 1 month); the sim will enter the hibernator (obviously naked: have you ever been hibernated with your clothes on? ) and will stay there in life suspension: no aging, no needs, nothing! If you don't manually interrupt the hibernation, by deleting the action from the command queue, the sim will automatically "wake up" when the chosen time has finished.
The hibernator takes care of all the body's needs (all the stats will slowly increase during the hibernation); only drawback: the sims will feel lonely into the hibernation cell, and their "social" will slowly decrease; the more they stay in, the more they will need social interactions when they wake up.
I suggest to put the Hibernators in a quiet place: though hibernated, the sims don't like noise, music and such (a "thought balloon" will be displayed if a sound disturb them).

Installation: put the package(s) in the downloads folder. You will find the Hibernator among the Aspiration Rewards, not in the normal catalog!

Additional data
The objects that I've cloned, in order to create the Hibernator, were the cheap single bed and the coffin, though very little still remains of both of them.
The Hibernator works in every game, even without EPs, is recolourable, and is shipped in three colours: blue (default), pink and transparent glass.
The mesh is only 822 faces / 584 verts (= very low, for an object of these dimensions).
If you are going to create recolours for the "metal" cover, be sure to recolour the separate "plaque" texture".

Known bugs
I said it's not perfect
1) When the Hibernator is used by a child, the animation of the door isn't perfectly synchronized with the body movement, and the child's body sometimes peeks out of the door (this happens only when entering and exiting: the hibernation itself has no glitches).
2) FIXED (Was: As soon as the child exits the hibernator, he suddenly sits down to the floor; this happens in Nighlife only)
3) FIXED (Was: If you order a sim to hibernate and cancel the action before he reached the hibernator, an error occurs (the sim will "jump"); there's nothing to worry about, though).

Hey, do you think you could make it so that they could spend five sim years or even more? I am thinking of freezing Jason Greenman or whatever I am playing so he may see his ancestors. Plant related or not.

I'm not going to edit this old object; but anyway, if the sim wakes up, he will start aging again at 6PM; therefore, if you send him back to hibernate before 6PM, you can keep him hibernated forever.

This is great! The only downside is that when you put a child or teen in, the school bus still comes and if they don't go to school, their grades drop. Oh well! I'll live with it. Beautiful work as usual!

If you put an adult in it, the pool car still comes for work; while an adult can quit job, children can't just quit school. Including a code that would prevent the bus from coming wouldn't be realistic, imho.

I love this item, but the only thing is, you have to make your sim quit their job to be able to hibernate without getting up to go to work. Or that can just be a master plan and you go to work, go home, hibernate, go to work, go home, hibernate... etc and get loads of simoleons without much effort. Unless you need to build skills.... BOOLPROP!! :D

It's hard to be yourself in a society that relies on clothes, hairstyles and looks to fit in.

I'm a fan of "realistic" mods. If we really could have a hibernation cell in our house, we certainly could NOT keep our job while being hibernated...

I've been using the hibernator and have solved all of the little irritants except one. I place a "prisoner token" from Inge's prison set in their inventory so they will not show up on comm lots, as residential visitors (even when invited), or as walk-bys. This does not flag them as a prisoner and works on any Sim that you don't want to go walkabout. Just delete it when hibernation time is over to return to normal. (Two Jeff's Visitor Controller may also be required to make it work properly but no special settings are needed). Inge also has a school/work sign that keeps the car pool from showing up.

The only problem I haven't figured out how to overcome is what to do with a hibernating werewolf. Twice a day, a werewolf will come out of hibernation to change to and from their werewolf form. The only solution I have found so far is to cure them of lycanthropy before entering, but this means that the Sim will have to find a way to regain their werewolf status when their hibernation time is over. Do you have any other suggestions to get around this problem?
