Paris City, France - Apartments

Category: Apartments
lot size: 5x2
furnished: totally (also maxis furnished version)
Apartments: 4
tested: yes, as usual i've tested a clone
§: from 2.640 to 2.827



Located in the center of the city, these apartments are the right choice to live and feel the beautiful atmosphere of Paris.



4 apartments: third building is a common area with billiard table and of course grill for condo meetings (in a terrace)

important: to play in the apartments follow the direction of visuals indicated here :
furnishing and objects arrangement are thinked for these visuals

Trees in front of palace don't obstruct visual because are put only in front of common area



There are few difference between apartments, first one is my favourite, very parisienne, the fourth is furnished in modern style.

I used little custom contents, only for the kitchen because the Tuscan Kitchen by phoenix_phaerie was Perfect for this lot style.

Maxis furnished version it's the same but without Delphine's curtain, phoenix_phaerie Tuscan kitchen, AdiDasek cooker.
here a pic of kitchens in maxis furnished version lot:



I think very carefully about objects disposition for let you play easy: this is a pic
of first apartment Section.

happy Paris

Beautiful job! I'd like note that your design provides excellent separation between apartments to eliminate the "noisy neighbors" phenomenon. Thanks for sharing!

Seriously.

So thank you!

This is the kind of post I love to read
I'm very interested about your feedbacks of playability/liveability of my lots, that is the point I most work on. Because imho if a lot is beautiful but invivible, it's not a good lot.

Thank you all for compliments, my fun is knowing you have fun in my lots

Very beautiful architectural work BUT this building doesn't look Parisian to me ! All Parisian buildings have an inner yard which is not the case here. Moreover, the furnishing isn't Parisian either. It still is a stunning lot though.

Hello! I've a problem with this lot.. the owner doesn't seems to know where to throw garbage like old newspaper. He just picked the newspaper, whining that he can't enter any of the apartment to throw it in the trashcan, drop it and repeat all over again.

Is there a cheat to be able to place a object outside my apartment? I'd like to place a trashcan somewhere.

And even sims are not real people!!

Btw, the photo of Paris that inspired me showed row houses very similar to my work, and for furnishing I get inspired from my memories, maybe I have short memory : )

Yes, you can use the cheat
BOOLPROP APTSUBLOTSPECIFICTOOLS DISABLED FALSE
to place a trashcan -or whatever you want- out of your apt

It's great! But I've got a little annoying problem: I live in the second apartment from the left. Every sim who wants to enter my apartment doesn't take the door in front of the apartment door to enter the corridor. They always use the one on the left.

Edit: It worked after I removed the door and placed the same on the same spot. Weird.
