To rent an apartment furnished:
* CTRL-SHIFT-C to bring up the cheat box.
* Enter the following cheat: boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true
* Walk your sim to the front door of the apartment that you want to rent. They need to be standing right in front of the door.
* Clear any actions from your sim's queue - including other sims trying to talk to them.
* SHIFT-click on the door of the apartment you wish to rent and choose "Rent Furnished."
* If the action falls out of your queue, your sim probably needs to be closer to the door.
* Once the apartment is rented, bring up the cheat box again.

Thanks, I really like this!

What was it like to see
The face of your own stability
Suddenly look away
Leaving you with the dead and hopeless?

Hi I think this is beautiful but there is a problem. Although this lot is supposed to be Chinese, you are using alot of *Japanese* objects and I honestly don't think thats fair. Shoji walls, shoji wall dividers, outdoor pagoda lights, torii gates, samurai swords, tatami mats, all these things are JAPANESE. There actually is a difference. So, I kinda like to find Chinese things when I search for "Chinese" and Japanese things when I search for "Japanese." So I think you should rename it to something less stereotypical. Please. Thanks

I'm not chinese neither japanese, so this is MY vision of chinatown, a quarter located everywhere. I was inspired by a photo of a real CHINESE town for exteriors; for interiors I try to insert less CC I can, so I used far east maxis collections.
You are not buying or paying anything, and sims2 is a game, so it's not supposed that I must replicate the reality or that I can't use my imagination.
Besides, you can replace maxis content with your chinese CC, i repeat, I don't want to put in buy-custom-contents on purpose. And it's nasty uploading an apartments not furnished.

Downloaded this awhile ago and only recently moved a small family into this appartment. I'm having the same problem as some of the previous posters. Game crashes the moment I rent the appartments. Your Paris appartments seem to work just fine for me however. You make very lovely lots. I'm hoping the issue with this one can be figured out, as this appartment goes very well with my asian theme town

anachronista, Akadai, ladyelsa : I tried installing lot in more than two pc and it worked well, besides most of downloaders have not this problem, so it's odd..
I can't figure it out, maybe this issue proceed from your pc? ChinaTown is full of objects and decorations, it's quite heavy, more than other lots of mine.
Crashes are strange for a cleaned lot, and usually they are due to hacks or corrupted objects that my lot doesn't contain..
sorry I don't know how I can help you more..
