Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is an apartment lot to go with my set of homes and shops inspired by the little thumbnail pictures of the collection in "We Love Katamari," the second Katamari Damacy game. Each one came with a name and included a blurb, which I've added below.

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

This is a really nice apartment building! I love the simplicity of it.

I do have a question, though. Are all the expansion packs really necessary? I have all the expansion packs except for Bon Voyage, so do you think I could still be able to have this lot in my game?

I'm sorry, it's my understanding that most of the expansions are required if the lot was created with that one installed, even if you don't use items from it, because file formats are changed from one EP to the next. Regardless I used at least two BV items so I really wouldn't want to crash your game.

Thank you for asking though. Maybe you could come back for it after getting the EP at some point.

I really like your apartment. I usually don't download apartments but yours was too cute to pass by

These apartments are so cute! I was watching an anime the other day that featured some apartments similar to this and I knew I needed some on the sims!

This is awesome! I have trouble finding apartments that will house a family of sims, but I think this one will do nicely. I like the layouts and I think my sims will too. Great job.

Thanks for this!! I was going to build something like this, but was too impatient (slow builder..teehee) Looks great ^^

Thank you thank you thank you! If it didn't sound funny, I'd say it even more!

I've been wanting to building Japanese style apartments for my Katamari village (most houses downloaded and installed thanks to you!), but just could never get it right.

So thank you SO MUCH for building this!

This is such a cool idea!! I'm a huge Katamari fan, and I feel like you really captured the square simplicity of the Katamari world. x3

This looks just like those typical apartments that I've seen in so many animes. Now my newly graduated or single Sims have a nice little place to live thank you
