Futuretec ~A Home for the Future~

I got a few requests to build a futuristic space-age home, after my last space-age community lot. This 4 BR/3 BA futuristic home can be yours for $235,915 and sits on a 3x5 lot.

The top floor has plenty of extra space to hold those career reward objects or to build more living spaces, if desired. And what home of the future would be complete without its own robot to help with chores? A Servo is included and is waiting your gender and name assignment.



















This lot has been play-tested as well as checked against the Clean Installer and is entirely hack-free.

While all listed expansion packs are required, none of the stuff packs are needed to install this lot.

Custom Content:

There are no custom objects present.
Two custom tiles were included by Frillen7: http://thesims2.ea.com/mysimpage/pod.php?user_id=126444

All other floors, walls and terrains were created by me.

~Enjoy!

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Hi Brighten, thank you for the PM, I wouldn't miss this fantastic lot.
You know, when I was a child I was sure that houses of 2K age would have this look, in my young mind houses of the future were exactly like this one.
It's nice to correct the present at least in the sims world, building the right modern and futuristic houses like yours.
Well done, I love this style so much! Kiss and ciao.

Hi! I've been thinking about a 'Jetson' house for the sims and this really reminded me of it! Teehee, I love it, I'm just about to try it out :P

Edit: Just noticed a person above is already on the same wavelength teehee!

Take care

Thank you everybody! I'm so glad you all are enjoying this lot! Actually the Jetson's cartoon series was the inspiration behind both my recent "space-age" lots!

Phew, now that I have the double post problem solved, I can answer some of these questions!

The bit of raised level inside with the stairs was created using the stage tool. It is found under the foundations tools and it came with the Open for Business EP. I just extended the stage over much of the floor, and used it to add drama and effect to the areas where you step up to separated living spaces.

Good luck with trying this, and all your future projects!

Hi darkon,

To get furniture to go at an angle open up the cheat window by typing Ctrl C

In the cheat box type in allow45degreeangleofrotation true

While you have ahold of the piece of furniture to be angled, hit the period key or the comma key to angle the piece.

I hope this answers your question! Good luck!
