Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Ok, I thought about doing a slum lot again - I made two already: Base Game Slum Lot and Shabby Suburb Starter - and then I decided to create an apartment duplex.

So here you can find two shabby apartments for your Sims who like to live in the suburbs and don't want to pay so much rent.

They are both fully furnished and decorated. In the backyard you can find a community area and there is a small playground for the kids too.

For renting the apartment FURNISHED:

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

Hope you like it! Feedback and thanks as always appreciated.

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: 845 - 1.074

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Awesome job! I love these type of lots! I was just playing with your other Slum Lot a few days ago too. I love that place, and this will go just perfect with Apartments!

Keep up the great work!

I second the *drooooooool* LOL

The trashy, slum lots are my favorite! I have a whole neighborhood dedicated to it... It's respectably called "Skid Row"

I want to see mooooore! I wish more people would create more of these type of lots!

Hey you all!! Thank you so much for your nice comments. I am so glad, you find it that useful for your game.

@whitewaterwood: The first of these is the apartment version and the second is the residential version of this lot. So the first one you can rent, like any other apartment of the game and the second one you can buy, just as the normal lots.
