Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Many thanks to RABARB for this idea to build a cul de sac. Each house has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and only one door to the outside so hopefully the lot can easily be made into apartments. The houses have some furnishings just for staging and all fixtures, but your particular sims can decorate to their taste. The cul de sac itself will be crossed by side walk when placed in your game but you can cover the side walk with asphalt tiles by using the cheat code "move_objects on". The biggest and most ostentatious house on the lot has a pool which the other sims can always sneak a dip in. If you have snooty sims who want snooty neighbors, move them in here!

Many thanks to ekrubynaffit for her AL version of this lot available here:

  • 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.

Amazing idea and I can't wait to transform it into the apartments! Very beautifully built, as always. I was hoping you were still building since I did not see any uploads for a while. Thank you for this very pretty lot.

I'm so grateful for you comments! aikurushii, if you have Apartment Life, go into the lot, and change the front doors of each house for the apartment door. Then open the cheat window by typing Ctrl Shift C, then type changelotzoning apartmentbase and hit enter. Then go back to neighborhood mode, saving your game, and you should see the apartment mailbox. Hope it works!

After summer is frozen...
I'm planning to pick it up again in near future. Now I'm working in a top classified project for the multicultural contest, which matches the whole oikos concept.

I think I will start my own, modified version of the legacy challenge I call the generation challenge. You know, just making loads of generations forever. I got three gens going at the minute, ill move my newly wedded couple in one of these! Its an ace place- Thanks for sharing!

Well, I never play with big families, but I really really like this lot! I tend to stick with three or four sims living together, maybe they can have one house each or something? x> Oh well, I'll find some way to use this lot. It's far too nice to skip out on.

It's so interesting to see how the sim generations progress. I've always wanted to do that but usually give up on my families when the hedges start to need trimming! It's building I love best. Thanks so much for sharing your plans!

So glad you can use it! I think it would be nice if it were apartments or if you have the ep where you can lock doors. When I play tested with just base game, sims were sort of all over the place!
