This is #11 from my set of homes inspired by the little thumbnail pictures of the houses collected in "We Love Katamari," the second Katamari Damacy game. In that collection each house had a family name (although the residents were never seen) and included a blurb about them, which I've added below.

11-Umemoto Residence

Holds a lot of parties out in the yard. The parties always end with some idiot guy prancing around naked.

I made #12 (Kurosaki) and #13 (Niwata), but they were rejected for being too similar. The rest of the houses are pretty similar to others I've made so this is probably the last "residence" from this series, just so you know.

This lot is only furnished with the necessities you'd get when moving into a new house and the only CC is the windows.

This must be where the nakedness happens.

2 Floors (plus large attic)
3 Double Bedrooms

Thanks for saying so folks.

xKyokox - They're called stealth stairs. Here's a link to a bunch of tutorials: link. They work just like regular stairs, but take up less space and no worries about them doing anything weird. I've been making them for years now.

^ For this one, yes. Most of the others require all except Apartment Life, because that's what I had when I made them. Lots will corrupt your game if you don't have the same EPs that the creator had installed when the lot was made. Not the case for SPs though. You'll just get replacements for items used.

I'm always looking for Japanese houses/apartments for my Sims so I'm really grateful for your Katamari series; it's much more basic than most of the Japanese homes that I have, but simpility is a very Japanese concept. This is a lot more realistic and perfect for my less matrialist Sims ^.^
