Hi Folks!

This is a typical downtown lot I built for wealthy sim families. It's a 2x2 Compact as usual, but because it's plenty of rooms and baths, and comes fully furnished (Maxis stuff mostly), its price is not for all pockets. If course you can get rid off most of the furniture to lower the price and have a fresh start.

Here are some basic facts of this Compact:
. One basement, two stories, 151.318 simoleons;
. Two livings (one in each floor), three bedrooms (2 suites), four bathrooms, four terraces, TV room, kitchen, elevator (from basement to roof);
. Basement garage (for two cars) and laundry (or gym) area;
. Except for the laundry and the cars, the house is fully furnished and decorated as you see in the pics. All decor itens were included in the package.

Ed, I love your designs. I find them very easy to play, rather than just being an architectural showcase.

I have quite a few of the Compact series but I'm having a little problem with them. Some of the windows aren't showing up as they should. I believe I've downloaded all the meshes and recolours mentioned in the credits (some of them several times) but I still have flashing blue windows. In particular I have the "Independent Expressions Inc Big Entrance shop window" with the "Handle and Spout" picture hung on it.

If anyone has any idea what it is I'm missing, or if there's a cheat I'm supposed to use to get them to show up properly I'd be very grateful.

... Nevermind me, I jumped the gun. It was actually a problem with ALL my cc which I've now fixed. Please carry on...

Hi FrootLoop,
Sorry not to help you in time, but my PC died at the countdown for the new year... I'm glad you could fix the problem.
