This is a tutoral on how to make a backwards garage



1. Buy any lot thats 5X5 maybe 6x5 faltten all land and leave room in the back

2. Bulid a drive as you normally would, but bring it all the way back, then you go left or right buy putting any floor tile.

3. Note [ cars will just disapear ]

4. Delete the sidewalk fron the otherside of the lot. The driveway and garage door should appear backwards if not PM me and i will experiment.

5. Put your garage door and drive ay in and your done.

6. The driveway should not be sideways.

if the lot has a ?x5 dimension, it will work. You only need the second dimension to be 5 for this to work :lol: :lol:

The size lot doesn't matter. However, the initial orientation in the neighborhood does. I'd suggest that the first thing you do when you want a different direction driveway is to delete that far sidewalk and then see how the driveway turns.

For backwards --
-- If it doesn't turn at all, bulldoze and lay a new lot out on the opposite side of the street.
-- If it turns sideways, bulldoze and lay out a new lot on a street that runs perpendicular (crosses) to the initial street. Check to see if it is now backwards.

The orientation of the lot doesn't change if you move house to bin and reposition it. What ever orientation it has when built is the one it will always have. Do not build until you know you have the orientation you want -- it can NOT be changed later. (... or at least, as best I can tell, it can't.)

Bluetexas : just follow these threads

This tutoral isn't very helpful. I followed each step exactly hundreds of times and it never worked. It's almost like a step is misssing. How about you includ some screenshots along with your steps and explaining, that would help everyone out a lot. Or why not upload a basic lot with the backwards garage in it, so it would be better to understand.

Foxy, This tutorial is a fake, some ideas are good but the layout is wrong,
Have a look to the wiki driveway tutorials http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?title=Tutorials:Garages

Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, but there is new relevant information (see below) regarding rotatable driveways and driveway extensions.

Firstly:
This tutorial is a fake, some ideas are good but the layout is wrong
The tutorial isn't fake. In post #8, bluetexasbonnie has it right. The "orientation" she basically refers to is the direction from which sunlight hits the lot, which determines which way a driveway may be turned, or whether it can be turned at all. This has been discussed at length elsewhere since the creation of this tutorial. The OP simply wasn't aware of this, which is why this method sometimes worked and sometimes not.

Regardless, this tutorial has become obsolete.
Players wishing to create sideways driveways and garages should use Mootilda's Rotatable Driveways (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=515924) mod, along with HugeLunatic's Rotatable Garage Doors (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=530855) mod.
