Thank you so much for the info. I couldn't figure out what the problem was with the two apartment buildings I had built. I used the "Great Divide" trim in one and custom arches in the other. Now, I can hopefully get it all straightened out!
Thank you so much i was trying to find something to help and hopefully ill be able to figure it out now thanks again
I got it to work i think there must have been maintenance or something Thanks again!
DarkAnnie, as far as I know it doesn't, lol. I think I've done it by accident once... I made a duplex but forgot the apartment door in the other apartment, which essentially made it a common area and only the one room was rentable.
I have a question. Can you make a house rentable using the apartmentbase cheat? One room, one door? Or would that cause glitches?
I do this all of the time. I just follow all of the rules given by this wonderful, helpful guide and I don't have any problems. I like it because the landlord always cleans up the garbage can and keeps the roaches away, lol. The rent's gonna go up a bit, though.
About furnished apartment: the trick listed here never really worked for me, although I followed exactly how it is said to do it. So here is a hacked apartment door that works: http://www.sims2workshop.com/viewtopic.php?t=2900 It has an option to rent a furnished apartment and also You can recalculate the rent to, I think :D
I never really had trouble with it. I made Billingsley Condos in Pleasantview and it turned out great. I made Megan Stratguas (hahahahaha a clone of me!) and she enjoyed it.
IF you guys want me to, I'll try uploading it. Thanks.
PS-IN THE APARTMENT, IT HAD 2 BEDROOMS FOR EACH ONE. THEY'RE NOT REALLY TINY LIKE THE SIMS 2 STAFF MADE ONES. THEY'RE PRETTY DERN BIG! THE RENTAL ON THE FIRST FLOOR IS ONLY LIKE $1,000 DOLLARS BUT THE ONES ON TOP ARE CLOSE TO $6,000!
Damn, so there's no way to get my upstairs apartments to have a deck in back with stairs leading down to the yard below? Are there any cheats that fix that, or any way to fake it so it LOOKS like it has a back deck even though it doesn't? o_0
Yes, otherwise they're going to appear empty when you visit your neighbours - the game doesn't auto-furnish townie apartments. First apartment building I ever built, discovered that little tidbit of information.
Just one quick question, I was working on making an apartment bigger, more floors, and more room. In doing so I added elevators to each apartment, (it's a duplex) so the sims could use the elevators to get to the separate floors in their own apartment. When I tried to convert the lot from residential to apartment I kept getting errors. Would that be because of the elevators, or should I be doing something else to troubleshoot?
I also used the setHighestAllowedLevel cheat to move from 4 stories to 5. Is that also a problem?
