,,It was in 1942, when the air raid siren went. I was one of the last Sims who came in the bunker. As soon as I sat my self on the ground, there was a terrible noise and the ground was shaking, some kids were crying. The German Sims dropped a bomb, next to bunker. Circa five minutes later, as we thought it was safe, there was another terrible noise. ,,Another bomb?’’ I thought, but the ground did´nt shake. About 20 minutes later, after nothing happened, we went outside and I did´nt believe what I saw. Next to the bunker there was a giant crater, and on the other side there was a plane and burning parts all over the ground. ,,That was the second terrible noise.’’ I knew.

That was the last bomb the German Sims dropped in Sunset Valley. And I never went back to the bunker of Sunset Valley...´´

That is what a survived Sim told about the bunker, and now, today the day, it still exists. Sims are telling that the ghost from the pilot of the Hunter is still there, and that he is trying to get back in his plane to finish his mission.
But we all know that that´s not true, right?
C'mon, it´s worth to take a look at the bunker, you can even go in!
Here are some really good drawings of the bunker by a 13 year old girl:

Too bad that some toph people dropped their junk on it.

Great lot, I've been trying to figure out some sort of bunker type lot myself but haven't had any luck yet lol. Awesome job with the landscaping too it looks, you really captured the feel of the whole bombed bunker them like in the story!

One small bug I noticed (which I ran into building my park too) is with the jet statue. Unfortunately when I put the lot down the statue jumps up to the ground level and isn't sunken like it is in the screenshot, it's something to do with when a lot is placed / moved so I think it checks and resets object locations that aren't in line with the current floor level.

On the bright side I did find a really easy way around it, you just have dig a small hole where the plane goes and place it in there (might have to hold ALT while placing so you can move it off grid) then cover any gaps with bushes or rocks .

I am curious.. in the story you wrote (that was a very nice touch! good job!) that the ghost of the plane is still there.

Did you put a gravestone in the lot to make a ghost come out at night?

This is a great bunker except you missed the vintage record player. And, you could have made the underground a maze of tunnels.

Give you a nice tip: Do a neighborhood filled with tunnels. And have them run through the neighborhood and connect them to basements and have them sealed off with boulders. Get a underground map of Washington, DC.

It is the only downside of SIMs 1, 2, and 3 you cannot build a tunnel system throughout a neighborhood.

Can't wait to see what you build next.

uber dive wells could be used inside tunnels to go between different lots

@notsomebeans: of course the pilot(s) being killed is possible, but they could have bailed out, got arrested, then lived their lives peacefully after the war

BTW, nice lot.

LOVE IT!

Btw you should make a version of the hunter where it is either crashed, standing normal with the landing gear open.

Very nice. I was already thinking "Why is no-one building a bunker?". Nice story too. The German Sims must have been a bit ahead of the real ones with their technology in 1942; the first prototype jets appeared around 1945.
