An apartment block intelligently designed to make its external shape as complex is possible, 44 segments of facade, while internal rooms are all rectangular. It feature a very efficient floor plan with two big rooms living and dining 7×6 squares, three bedrooms 4×4 squares, two bathrooms 4×2 an 3×2 squares, each room having 2 doors to other rooms to prevent sims getting stuck.
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.
Inspired from Egypt pyramids or Luxor Hotel from Las Vegas, this The Sims house is shaped like a pyramid and feature 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, so it can be home for families up to 8 Sims. Made in October 2018, this is the first house designed by me where I decorated interior in stone and bricks, instead of wood and carpet seen in most of my houses. The interior receive daylight via windows even if the windows are not visible from outside, because are under roof.
The Pinnacle Tower is the largest of the series of skyscrapers I build in The Sims 2. Because the game do not display in neighborhood view flooring above 150 steps from ground, had to cover building using a pitched roof. 15 floors is the maximum height possible using SetHighestAllowedLevel cheat, without crashing game.
The Empire Tower is a The Sims 2 optimized version of Empire State Building, because the game do not display in neighborhood view flooring above 150 steps from ground, had to cover building using a pitched roof. 15 floors is the maximum height possible using SetHighestAllowedLevel cheat, without crashing game. Sister building with Imperial Tower.
The Sims is a game meant to build houses, but I can also build a skyscraper. Well… I had to downsize it from 86 floors + 16 floors spire, to 9 floors + 3 floor spire.
Apartment-like block built for visual experiment. In The Sims 3 there is no cheat of building more than 5 floors so this is the tallest building I can make.
This is not a makeover, it is inspired… I made a home similar with Maxis-made Helluva Hacienda from The Sims 2 house bin, in terms of U-Shaped and architecture style, but different building size and different pool position. Made in July 2012.
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.
In December 2011, after 3 years of little attention paid to gaming, I installed The Sims 2: Apartment Life. I love the expansion pack, but I hate the Maxis-built apartments, so I had to design myself PROPER apartments, this being the first one.
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.
I found these pictures while browsing old folders in my computer. They date back from 2005, taken with in-game camera so no high resolution available and no download link.
