Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Welcome to Bella Donna Circle, a nice cul-de-sac for small families!



This is my first in the series of cul-de-sac areas. I wanted to attempt to get as close as possible to the feel of The Sims 3 with the whole open neighborhood thing. The neat thing about this area is that any children/teens get off the bus at the same time and walk down the "street" to their houses. Sims walk in and out going to work or the pool or the community. It feels like a regular neighborhood on one lot!

Now if little Susie wants to play with her neighbor across the street, she doesn't have to call her over, she can walk across the "street" and play with them!

There are five houses fully furnished with 2 bedrooms except for the back house which has 1 large studio bedroom. Only the two front houses have fully functional garages, all of the other garages are for looks only. You can use the "move_objects on" cheat to place a car in the other garages, but I wouldn't recommend trying to use the vehicles as they won't return. So only put the Sims who you want driving in the front two houses and you can place other sim families in the remaining houses if you don't mind them walking everywhere.

Rent for the houses range from $3,100 - $4,899

This is my first upload! I hope you like it! (I also hope it passes...)

Looking great. I wonder what it looks like if the cul-de-sac connects seamlessly to the real street. You can do that by turning on the moveobjects-cheat and painting the grey street floortile across the pavement, the terrain in front of that and the curb. Try that if you plan on building another one.

The garage doors are fake on all except the front two houses. I used a garage door wallpaper. I've included the link for the garage door wallpaper in the description.

As soon as you move the lot in the hood, or import it into another hood, the 'real' road is replaced. So you have to re-paint those tiles each time you move the lot, that's all.

I LOVE this! I cant wait for all the apartments to be occupied! So, now my children can vist their friends! And, they don't have to call and ask if they can come over! Thank You! So much! I also love the way you did the design of the street to look like your on a REAL street, and not just on an apartment lot! It really doesn't look like it! It just look like a normal Court of houses!
