"Aftermath" Series
This is a series of derelict, abandoned style buildings which may include some form of "destruction" to the architecture or landscape. The type of building you might see in apocalypse / disaster type movies and video games. This theme has been inspired by games such as the STALKER and Fallout series and movies like Mad Max, and many others.

Crumblin Place
It may be a crumblin' in places but there are some floors in this apartment building that are still habitable. Perhaps being nestled between high rises downtown sheltered it from the event.

Lot Details
2 Bedroom
1 Bathroom
Kitchen / living / diningroom
Decorative collapsed building
Overgrown fountain
1 parking space (with vehicle)
2 bike stands (with one scooter)

Lot Size: 50x25
Lot Price: $18,783 (F) / $12,838 (Unf)

Side Notes
This is my first attempt to build a functional apartment from scratch, it contains the maximum amount of buildable floors (6 I think) but has been CFE'd in places to be taller than the average wall height in places. There are level skip markers in place to take you from the ground floor directly to the apartment level, the wall mailbox and callbox are by the elevator in the lobby and there's a trash chute in the hallway out side the main apartment.

The apartment itself is fairly normal and not destroyed in any way though the decor is in keeping with the style (i.e. old wood, rusty metal, peeling paint, etc), there are two bedrooms, a full bathroom with both shower and bathtub and a main living area with a kitchen / dining set up in one corner.

Have done some basic testing, everything that should be usable is so far as I could tell. The main door to the lobby is set as the "Front Door" so newspapers and service sims will come there.

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.

I've been up for the last 6+ hours trying to find this one again, I hadn't taken notes. You've got an amazing asortment of builds that are just beautiful in that post-apocalyptic style. I think it's time I bring down the neighbors property values.

The world's ended, water & food are scarce, but at least the elevator still works!

Haha, just kidding. Great work!

Your work is utterly amazing! I have an empty Twinbrook, which I have always intended for an apocalyptic storyline. I am putting your ENTIRE Aftermath series into it....and letting the games begin! Thank you for sharing!
