Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
"Demolition Alley" Series
This is a series of warehouse and industrial type buildings, they are all residential lots so they are designed to be functional houses at the core but I am trying to retain as much of a warehouse / industrial theme as possible.

The Last Train..
..to SimsVille, retired to an old train yard.. it won't be there by 4.30 and I won't be meeting you at the station, oh no no no..



Rooms
4 Bedrooms
3 Bathrooms
Kitchen / dining room
Livingroom
Parking spaces
Derelict train carriages
Party carriage

Lot Size: 40x30
Lot Price: $147,201 (F) / $125,561 (Unf)

Side Notes
This is my seventh building in this series, basically this place is supposed to be part of an old abandoned train yard. There's a couple of carriages still left, though they've been there so long that weeds are invading and some local "youths" even made off with the wheels! Fortunately though a couple of party animals remodelled one of the carriages as a party wagon, the majority of the rooms are at the top of the building..

Old offices converted into 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen / diningroom and livingroom. There's also an office / study on the 2nd floor and another bathroom down on the 1st floor. As mentioned one of the train carriages has been set up as a party wagon with a bar, big radio and fooseball table and some alternative lighting.

Testing
Have done some basic testing, everything seems in order (all objects seem to be accessable so far as I could see). Some service sims path strangely when they first arrive on the lot but seem to work ok, paperboy for example runs in and goes to one of the train carriages then (once he's "entered" the lot) he'll walk up to the front door and drop the paper. If anyone finds any issues please let me know and I'll try to correct them as promptly as possible.

This is fantastic. The service sims thing, have you set the front door? If you haven't had sims living in it then you might not have. Once the front door is set, it should be fine. It looks amazing though.

I did have my test sim living there for a couple of days with the door down front near the mailbox / dumpster set as the front door.. I think it's a similar issue that I noticed in Sims 2, when NPC sims first "enter" the lot they have a designated spot (or spots) to walk to first before they begin their actions, chances are I put a bush or fence or something on the standard entry points so the first available one was further in the lot. They did all use the set front door appropriately though after they "arrived" .

Incredible!

This entire series has been, as mentioned above, incredible, but this lot especially. It really looks like an old train station, which, before seeing the finished product, I'd have said was a dubious prospect. I sit corrected!

The party room is a bit hard on the eyes, but entirely appropriate. I guess a pair of sunglasses is in order.

Thank you so much for creating and sharing! Truly, a noteworthy accomplishment. I applaud your effort!!

Wow this looks like a building from Fallout 3, but at closer look - no, it's original idea, still abandoned feeling but this is something new and very creative!
