Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Please redownload - stairs are fixed now, everything works fine. And I have deleted the shrubs in the back, because the landlord couldn't trim them.
Thanks to Ressecup1987 for pointing me to that!



I did another apartment building and now it's in a typical european terraced/row house style.

There are three apartments and they are all fully furnished and they have two levels.
They are each perfect for bigger families (master bedroom, nursery, single bedrooms etc.) or subtenants.

Hope you like it!



BTW: To rent an apartment furnished you can do the following:
CTRL-SHIFT-C to bring up the cheat box.
Enter the following cheat:
boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true
--> go very near to the door and stand before it and then SHIFT-click on it and choose "Rent Furnished"
After that open the cheat box again and type: boolProp testingCheatsEnabled false

Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price: 2.419-2.468

Number of bedrooms: 5 or more

Cool! I didn't know! Thanks for the info.
Beautiful lot btw: the smaller (but rationally furnished) houses are my favourites -

@HomestarRunner20X6:
Sure! Love to see so many great apartment buildings here. I'll check your profile for your upload.

@Numenor
Oh my - it's such a honour for me, that the Modfather (the name is so great and funny) himself gives me feedback - thanks. I really appreciate it.
For the cheat all thanks goes to HystericalParoxysm for the great tutorial on the wiki: http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?...ng_an_Apartment where I read about that cheat.

And to all who gave me so nice feedback too: Many thanks and I am glad you enjoy this lot!

Thanks so much for such a wonderful building. I love having my sims live in apartments but am not creative enough to build one from scratch. I am glad I can add this one to my neighbourhood. Thanks again!

You're only as good as the last book you wrote...

I had this bug too, but not with this building - I had it with a maxis building in Belladonna Cove. I think it's a bug from this EP and I don't know what to do about that. Maybe move the sims out and then in again.

Thank you very much Ressecup1987 for your help - I just reuploaded the lot with the changed staircases for every apartment.
The staircases were not accessible, like you said, sorry for that.

For all - everything works fine now. The stairs are in the right position for accessing the second level! If you downloaded the lot before, please redownload.

One problem is that you forgot to put backs on your closets. Other than that it's great

THE BUS WORKS FINE! Please take out all your hacks and mods before posting about problems with my lot!

And it would be great, if you delete your posts about the issue with the stairs since they are fixed now. Thank you.
And please delete your entry about the bus too, because I tested it and the bus comes to pick up the children. Otherwise everyone who wants to download the lot gets confused about your hack/mod problem and think the bus does not come. - thanks again.

Hello. I am having trouble with the closets. I can't select them at all. Whether sims live in the apartments or not. I took out my hacks folder, and even tested the closets in another lot. The closets are fine except on your lot.

Ok - so I tested that out in all three apartments and everything is possible (Woohoo, changing clothes etc.) in the closets on this lot. They ALL work fine.
You can't select them in buy mode or delete them - do you probably mean this? But you can't select them on any apartment lot since it is restricted by the game itself (it does work, but only with cheats).

So for me every closet work fine, since I tested it out in every apartment. Either way - does anyone else have this problem missybrina has?

Closets work fine for me. One problem that I do have though is that the landlord stays all day long complaining because he cant trim the four bushes near the pool in the back.
