Fun with fire

A sim called taxi while another sim was cooking, leaving the food on stove which burned. Firetruck arrived right when all family left home. After several days spent on community lots, my family returned home with taxi and found the firefighter still at home going to extinguish the fire (this is normal in The Sims 2, the lot is saved when sims go to community lot, this cannot be done in The Sims 3).

Teoalida’s second apartment block

After the success with my first apartment, I have made 3 or 4 more similar apartment buildings, none being really better than first one, until… this one made in June 2012, so I am publishing now under name Second Apartment. Squarish building with modern design, duplex apartments (maisonettes) designed for 4 sims, but can fit up to 6 sims by putting more beds.

Peles Castle 6×5

This is the UNFINISHED The Sims 2 replica of Peles Castle, the most expensive building of Romania. I designed it in 2007 after visiting the castle, using base game on a 5×5 lot, being distortioned to fit. I re-designed it in 2010 using Apartment Life to get 6×5 lot and roof variety, but rear facade was a blank wall.

Teoalida’s third apartment block

A new apartment block made in September 2012, improved version of my first apartment. Same overall building size, but without front/back symmetry. I solved the problem with pool access by placing it in front of block. I used better interior design, without L-shaped split-level stair that caused jams, and I added cornices around balconies to enhance beautifulness.

Federal Fortress 3×3 452 (Maxis makeover)

I hate the Maxis-made houses, but the Federal Fortress looked nice, as I love symmetrical houses. I noticed that others did makeovers too, but they kept land size that is 4×4, a waste of land. Also they renovated it using some expansion packs. Personally I made it more beautiful without using any expansion pack, meaning that the house is compatible with any game.

House on a Tiny 1×2 Lot II

I has been criticized for making too squarish houses with too few rooms, so in July 2012 I decided to improve the original Tiny Lot House, now the house is even smaller and include also a pool. Kitchen is separated from living-dining while the upper floor plan is composed by 3 rooms and a small hallway. Designed for families of 4 Sims.

House 1×2 lot 188

On a tiny 1×2 lot I built a large, extremely fat and cubish house, completed with pool and hot tub. A good home for a family with 6 sims with a possibility to add 2 extra single beds, but there are not enough bathrooms for 8 sims.

I used LotAdjuster to maximize buildable area, as I did for Terraced Houses, but this one is intended as detached home. Made in October 2012.

PS: I do not know how to create such small lots like 1×2. I downloaded them from ModTheSims.info (Mini residential lots by MaryLou).
