Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Stupid name, cool house..
It was named after Panda because it consists of mostly Black and White colors.
And Pandas are cool, even cooler than penguins !

The first draft was to make a Box looking house (like most modern houses available here at MTS )

But apparently, using half walls to make roof leaves a nasty hanging ceilings effect. So I decided to make a weird looking roof shape instead ^^

as for the front lobby, the drawers are supposed to be shoe lockers btw.

having a front lobby with shoe lockers is a quite common thing in japan.
although honestly I was just kinda lost as to what to do with that room ^^

the second floor is a studio for your artistic sims !
or you can just convert it into a gym instead.. :p

That's all, hope you enjoy the house..

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

@ConnorOnTheSims: which pic ? I only see a Yomoshoto Evasion which is a standard object..??

press ctrl+shift+c and then type in "moveObjects on"


That's what I thought it was, but even with my graphics all the way up a Yomoshoto looks nothing like that in my game.
