After several critics regarding Palace II’s lack of elegance, and Palace I’s messy house floor plan, too few rooms, non-rectangular rooms and bad interior design, I decided in April 2013 to build a new The Sims model of Trianon Palace from Floresti, Romania, built by Cantacuzino Family in 1910. I broke my personal record of the most expensive house in The Sims 2. I have playtested it and modified it twice in May and for third time in July, before publishing on my website, to be sure that will be awesome.
I built in The Sims 2 the famous house of Kevin McCallister from favorite movies: Home Alone 1 & 2, in September 2012, after I got its location and floor plan (671 Lincoln Street, Winnetka, Illinois, a 2-story house plus attic and basement, 4250 square feet, built in 1921). A luxury property for families up to 8 sims, decorated including the rear garage and minivan seen in movie, but it resulted a messy floor plan.
This is a The Sims 2 replica of the castle located in Săvârşin vilage in Romania, built in 17th century. I designed it in The Sims 2 in September 2018, featuring 4 bedrooms for families up to 8 sims, 4 bathrooms, living room, dining room with 12 seats, 3 TVs, 2 pianos, 2 desks with computers, 2 empty desks, etc.
This is a more efficient version of the first Palace (a replica of Floresti’s Trianon Palace). Palace II is smaller, but have a bigger disco room, staircases are facing to street (as they should), and the floorplan was designed to optimize furniture placements rather than to replicate a real building. Contains 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 6 other rooms, connected with double doors to prevent traffic jams. Designed for large families of 8 Sims.
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.
