Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I have been all inspired by Phae's Apocalypse Challenge

Anyway, I was thinking about what I would do if I survived the apocalypse. I would of course go and find a defensible house and hide there - but I live in a city, and everyday I see all these grand buildings that I could never afford to live in. I was thinking that yea, the looters would come and trash the interior and take all they could - but are they really going to steal windows and doors? Walls? Maybe the building structure would get damaged, but the shell of a lovely building would remain. I could live there.....




So, it was this thinking that inspired this lot. Its not really compatible with the apocalypse challenge as the lot is too small and is on lush ground - but I tend to ignore rules that mean I can't have pretty.

The house is amazingly cheap - this is because all the BUILD is depreciated - my sim lived in it for 5 days while I was testing. I moved the sim out and replaced all the buy stuff. I used BoilingOil's Revised version of Pixelhate's amazing wall overlays - now the grunge costs NOTHING, it does not boost room score and sims don't spend their time admiring grunge


BACKSTORY
I have to have a backstory or I can't build... Hmmm. Well, I think that this building was originally the Town Office - a fairly grand building with an office for sim visitors to come and complain about how the town was being run and an upstairs offices for the mayor and the staff to sit about doing nothing in. The main indicator for this is the Plumbob Arch at the top of the posh staircase and the remains of a pretty Art Deco type separator (in the "living/skilling" area).

Lot Price: 19917

It amuses me that they stole the garage door. This house looks fantastic, Lee, and the graffiti is a particularly nice touch.
Doing all the things, and *mostly* not failing.

Absolutely gorgeous Lee! I love it! As for being on too small a lot, that's allowable because of crappy computer processors, and the lush lawn would change once it were placed in a desert or dirt hood. What I noticed is that is likely too small to raise a family in and things can't be left outside, like the chessboard. All that being said, I'm TOTALLY downloading this and sticking a spare family in there once we've unlocked Law. (I already have a founder lot of course)

Yea, I was a BIT surprised that that happened(I blame Maxis) but I thought it was neat. Of course they looted the garage door - for firewood....

I'm starting the Apocalypse Challenge for the first time, and I'm using your house. You have the same idea that I do. If I survive the apocalypse, I'm going to get a mansion overlooking the park. It may be empty and stopped, but why not?

This is one of the more iconic buildings for me in Sims 2. It has that unique, imposing feel to it and still shows restraint...
