Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
zomg my first lot upload, enjoy the outcome of my painfully hard work with super-duper details!



When we went to New York for a holiday, our cab driver asked us whether we had given him the right address when he pulled in front of a building that looked exactly like the one in the middle.. New York is amazing in all of it's dirtyness and weird impractical stuff, so let's have our sims enjoy some of it too!



The lot has three buildings, which the shortest and the middle one are just basically deco-buildings only. The taller red bricked includes a groovy apartment, and a storage space that can be used as a space for band practices and parties, or as artistic studio or whatever you want and need for your simmies!

The apartment has an elevator that goes to two floors. The other floor is for NPC characters and the other for your simmies.
The apartment is decorated in groovy city style, and it has one room that is currently used as an office, but it can easily be changed into an extra-bedroom. There's also the iconic fire ladder thingies that you see everywhere in NYC, but they obviously are just deco so don't forget the fire alarms.
There are also 4 parking spaces.

The other deco building is a house under heavy renovation, but in the ground floor is a guitar shop. The other building is purely decoration only, and your sims can't enter neither of them not even by mistake, so they won't get stuck there or anything.




I've used decoration objects from WA and couple of AMB objects, so the lot works okay without the two EP's, but you'll lose a lot of the details of the outside. Late night is a must though, the lot isn't meant to be run without it, so don't even try it!



Brick pattern by Hydroxide
Destroy pattern by Around the sims 3

I have used codes while building, so be careful not to remove parts of the buildings (like the fire stairs, elevators..) since you won't be able to get the as they were if you aren't experienced in using codes in build mode!


The lot size is 35 x 25


Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: Furnished 37,406
Unfurnished 7,589

Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included: None

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.

Haha, well, the lots I build for my poor simmies never see the finish line even remotely because of my compulsive need to make everything painstakingly detailed, and the fact that my game crashes in build/buy mode every 30 minutes.. All that means I never actually get to play my game.
So lol I really think it's okay to have simple, playable homes.. :' )

And to Sami, it's because I included all kinds of fun details I saw in there!

Those two should be just game's patterns, the metal came with AMB patch and the masonry with LN patch.

Now this is what I'm talkin bout!! This is great for my "Chicago west side world" that I have been trying to build for a long time now. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!. And on a side note - crashing in buy/build mode?? I was too until I narrowed it down to a particular creator's custom content. I had to part with it even though it looked good showcased. I haven't crashed since. Have you used the Delphy's Dashboard to locate the culprit?? http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=387006

And oh yes.... planning on doing any more buildings like this?? I'd love to see more :D

I'm so unobservant sometimes I'll need to have a look for it. It reminds me of the 3/4 masonry wall in the fences section (base), I thought somebody must've taken the uncloneable pattern from that and made it an actuall castable pattern. Anyway, If this is what your lots come out like I hope to see more of them uploaded

My game crashes because my PC is.. a bit weird since it's from an office auction.. I really don't know whether I'll upload more lots, because like I said.. it really takes me tremendous amount of time to build something detailed with my weird computer, and I don't really build anything simple.. :/
I'm working on a world though, so maybe I'll upload some lots I make for it.

It was like around a corner from The Empire state. It was half-demoed, partially renovated and squeezed between two really tall buildings. It was so cool, and actually looked great from the inside.

This is a really great looking lot, awesome in fact!! I haven't had a chance to load it in yet or check too far into the Late Night new items but I've got to ask.. those scaffold poles / wood planks you have around / on top of one part of the building, could you tell me where it is in the Buy / Build catalog please?

Pretty much all of the decoration objects of the outside are from buydebug.
