Default Titanic - WIP *Grand Staircase Completed 12/12/18*
Grand Staircase

December 12th 2018

Hi everyone! This month I started to work on recreating RMS Titanic in The Sims 2. I will first build all interiors needed for the movie and then the exterior of the ship. I will try to post updates once a week. This is a free time consuming process and I'm trying to make it as accurate as possible so it may take a while! All comments and suggestions are welcome!

I started with first class grand staircase and here are pics how it looks at the moment!

D Deck

C Deck

B Deck

A Deck

Boat Deck

That's all for now!

Boat deck.

That's all!

This seems like a lot of work and a very CC heavy project. Be sure to check out the other Sims Titanics which are out there, that might help if you're confronted with a complicated part, and may contribute to a CC-free solution.

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

Thanks for your advice! I have a plenty of useful objects already, planning to do just some recoloring, but these iconic pieces I'm trying to make as accurate as possible. Also cloning objects from game itself such as columns and furniture and modifying them a bit will hopefully speed up the process!

Look forward to seeing this take shape! The staircase looks great.

I'm pleased with progress I managed to make this week: new wrought iron fence which I actually made fully 3d, but it was unfortunately far too complex for Milkshape to handle so I made it 2d png based, 5 new columns after having constant problem of getting "not responding" message from Milkshape and 12 different textures for flooring based on OFB EP (I think).

Updated A Deck with new columns and iron fence.

Updated Boat Deck also with new columns and iron fencing.

New linoleum flooring. The old one had just sentimental value, was made in paint!

Decorative wall column which was finished yesterday and will be used on 6 decks, from E up to Boat Deck.

That's all!

This looks fantastic! You should check out Titantic: Honour & Glory, as far as I know it's a free download, you get to explore the ship as they made it in 3D, and it's very detailed, perfect for what you're doing as a reference in 3D.

Thanks! I heard about the game and it's a pure perfection! I'm using as a reference various photos of Titanic's sister ship Olympic as well as online deck plans, but I will sure have in mind all new discoveries that Honour & Glory team discovered with their experts and try to apply them in previously wrong realized design.

Ever wanted to travel aboard Titanic or becoming an extra in the movie? Well, your Sim can! Make yourself as a Sim in Sims 2 Body Shop or if you're feeling brave or creative you can make yourself as Edwardian era Sim and upload it where ever you wish or send the file as email to and your Sim will appear in upcoming movie. Before sending just don't forget to share few pics with us!

Simple terms:

-it would be nice to make your Sim matching real age: if you're 12 or under - child; 13-19 - teenager; 20-65 adult; 65 or more - elder.

-if you're planning to make your Sim as Edwardian one, please consider historical accuracies.

-please select a class you wish to travel.

*Please notice that details like clothes and hair style may be changed to fit the era; skin tones may be changed to universal skin tone style to match all Sims.
