Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This lot features two nice apartments.
They have space for a family with up to three kids each. There is space for up to four cars.

To rent it furnished:
type "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" in the cheatbox (bring it up with ctrl+shift+c) and shift click on the apartment door and choose "rent furnished". Then disable the cheat with "boolprop testingcheatsenabled false".

I hope you like them. For your convenience I added the residential version of this lot too. (costs: 74.408)

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: 1.857-1.956

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

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.

Thank you for making apartments with driveways. My fortune sims always need to buy a car!

I just have a quick question is the custom content included or do I need to download those by themselves?

Then I tried the lot, those driveways aren't usable.

Thanks for reporting back.
Hmm - ok, I figure out, why they aren't usable.

Maybe you can fix it - otherwise, it's a good duplex.

General rule for simming: If your sim is a fortune sim or has a freetime hobby of tinkering, be sure that you have at least a usable driveway. Fortune sim - for the points bonus for buying a car, tinkering sim - for all the tinkering points you get for restoring a car. It doesn't hurt to have a large spare room for the tinkering sim for the trainset!

These are cute! I think I'll use the apartments for my main neighborhood and the residential version for my college students.

Nicely done!

General information regarding driveways for apartment lots: 1 Always put a car on the driveway before changing the lot to apartment base. 2. If you reenter the lot after changing it, both car and driveway will have disappeared. If you move someone in and have them claim the car for someone in the apartment it will remain. 3 if you place a parking space inside an attached garage, place a car on it before turning it into and apartment lot. You can always exchange the car. 4 I like to use the cheat rent furnished apartment to help insure that the driveway remains.

These are awesome but not very happy that you can't put a car on the driveway. Why did you make it that way? Can you fix it? Please. Once you rent the apt, you can change the walls and furniture.
