Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

A contemporary gym that features diagonal walls and floor to ceiling windows.
The word strata came to my mind as the structure, when being viewed from the floor, give an illusion of layers; I might make this a series.
Nhood placement is best if the right side of the lot (the asphalt area) is street accessible. There is nothing to buy on the lot but I included a cash register just so it could feel more realistic.
No custom content is in this lot although I initially wanted to include the decorative parking spots by MogHughson for the asphalt area. If you are curious as to how I got the "Lunatech" light fixture to appear like that in the ceiling, go on over to, its a great fix by Menaceman44!

  • 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.

I like the look of this lot and just from that think that is will play well. It's easy to see you put a lot of thought into the placement of the equipment. I like the clean modern lines of the building. I will include the parking spots. I love the way they make the place look popular. Thanks

I love the windows and architecture in general. I would totally download it if I had all of the eps installed!

Most of the exterior and interior wall coverings are not showing up for me:

Anyone else having this problem?
Any suggestions?
I have a feeling this might be an issue only in my game, because it's been behaving differently from one day to the next.
Edit: Nope, don't really think it's a problem with my game.

ScaryRob, are you running Windows or Mac? The later needs wall textures to conform to the usual formats (e.g. 256x512) and will not display walls with that odd format the Homecrafter creates by default. Maybe that's the problem?

Wait, this lot doesn't contain custom walls, so that's probably not the problem unless EA has messed up. Do you maybe lack a Stuff Pack that included these walls?

Check out Omicron-Simtauri, my new space project!

I'm on win 7 and I have all EPs and SPs.
I thought the problem might be related to some CEP issues I was having, but those have been resolved.
Downloaded and installed twice - no joy.
What are the names of the wall coverings the creator used? That red and yellow on the exterior and whatever the interior one is.

So I went "shopping" for a community gym here on MTS today. Found a few nice possibilities and tried them in game. This place is my winner! I love the look. I love the layout with its open spaces that let me get the camera right down on a sim's level and watch them with nothing blocking my view. I love that it's all gym without other distractions (although I might put a food stand in the parking lot so they can eat more than soda). I love that there are punching bags! And ballet barres! And dance spheres! It's such fun watching a sim that needs more body skill trying to use those spheres.

The wall coverings were not showing for me either, but that was easy enough to fix using the pics here as a guide.

Thank you very much for sharing this lot!

I love it! It was such a good idea to use diagonal walls rather than normal straight ones :)

There is so much about this gym I like that it would be hard to list it all! The colors, the building design, the layout of the equipment... you really did a fantastic job and I thank you!
