How to build a Driveway / Garage
A guide written by Envious

Before you get started:


Ensure you have 'moveobjects' set to off or you won't be able to lay your driveway.
If you wish to build a garage, you must build a driveway first. You can not lay an extention without a driveway, and you can not place a garage door in the middle of the driveway.
From all my testing, you can not lay a driveway on a Community lot.
You can not place a driveway or extension on a foundation.
When laying a driveway or extension on uneven ground, the game will auto-level it for you. (I didn't notice any difference in price)
You can also place two driveways, extensions and garage doors beside each other to make a double garage if you wish.
You can place mutliple driveway extensions to make a longer driveway - as long as your block will allow.

** Click on thumbnail images to see full size version. **

Let's start building!
Ok, before we get started, there's a few things you need to know...
To start with, at this stage your Sim always approaches from the right so if your placing the driveway on the right hand side of your lot, you need to ensure there are at least seven (7) tiles between the edge of your lot and the left side of the driveway. See pictures below.

http://img390.imageshack.us/img390/5216/snapshotf03729f0d03737e91kr.th.jpg (http://img390.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f0d03737e91kr.jpg)http://img390.imageshack.us/img390/343/snapshotf03729f0503737f40gm.th.jpg (http://img390.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f0503737f40gm.jpg)

Alternatively you can place your driveway quite safely on the left side of your lot. If you are laying your driveway on an already existing house, you need to ensure there are ten (10) tiles free from the street (eight from the footpath).

If you just want a place to park your car, that's all you need to do. Purchase your car and place it on the driveway, you're good to go. If however you wish to build a garage for your car to protect it from all those elements such as... well the sun, continue reading.

Adding a garage!
In order to build a garage for your car, you must lay the driveway first. Once that's down, you want to select the 'Driveway Extension Piece' and place it at the end of your driveway. At this stage it has to go directly at the end, and it can not be rotated, but I'm sure eventually all the wonderful modders will change that!

http://img355.imageshack.us/img355/5268/snapshotf03729f010373a810qv.th.jpg (http://img355.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f010373a810qv.jpg)http://img355.imageshack.us/img355/5445/snapshotf03729f0b0373a854xt.th.jpg (http://img355.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f0b0373a854xt.jpg)

Ok, now we have the driveway extension added, let's put in a garage door. They come in a few different colours, so select which one you would like to place, and possition it where the driveway and the extension meet. See below:

http://img374.imageshack.us/img374/7293/snapshotf03729f010373c281ax.th.jpg (http://img374.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f010373c281ax.jpg)

Once that's done, it's time to hone into those building talents and place some walls and a roof. Much like building a regular house, you join the wall up to the garage door, but of course you only need to build three sides.

http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/1708/snapshotf03729f090373cf07em.th.jpg (http://img385.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f090373cf07em.jpg)

Here's an amusing fact : You can make the garage part of your house... literally! Instead of building three walls around to it to make it a self contained garage, you can in fact join your lounge room or bedroom around it and have the car park inside the house! But let's not go too crazy just yet...

Adding a roof to your garage is just like adding one to your house, and of course you could always place some tiles at the end of the extention, a stairway and place a second floor do your garage... rent it out!

http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/8638/snapshotf03729f010373dd80lr.th.jpg (http://img385.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f010373dd80lr.jpg)

Now comes the fun part - let's go shopping!

Your new car!
Once you decide what car you want to buy, haggled the price down and paid the dealer, it's time to place your car. If you have only placed a driveway down, then it's pretty obvious where you need to put it, but if you have built a garage, and you want your Sim to use the garage, you need to place your newly purchased car inside the garage. Doing so will ensure your sims return to parking inside the garage when they come home.

http://img389.imageshack.us/img389/9035/snapshotf03729f050373ec95qj.th.jpg (http://img389.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotf03729f050373ec95qj.jpg)

Placing a car is just like placing furniture, it can't intersect walls etc. And that's pretty much it! Paint some walls, place some garden bed outside and you're good to go. Happy hooning!

Some other building tips:

You can place a door (normal house door) to get into your driveway and Sims will use it, however it can not overlap your extension so make sure you leave room for an extra tile width. Sims may still use the garage door depending on where they are coming from.

Thanks for making the tutorial, now I know how to make my lots to be more NL-compatible, thanks again for your clear tutorial.

I've 2 questions though.

1. What if a 2x2 lot is used, will the positioning of the driveway be of any difference? In other words, does lot size matter? And if so, how do they affect and so how to deal with it?

2. If a community lot has a driveway by building it with lot-type-changing cheat, will it be usable ?

Thanks in advance...

Nice days...

Envious

Hi niol,

With regards to lot size, I'm not 100% sure as I tend to use the medium ones, but I wouldn't guess that a lot size would matter unless it's smaller than the driveway itself. It less than 7 wide or 10 deep.

I tries using a driveway on a community lot, but so far every time they have just pulled up out the front near the phone / bin area. From what I have read, the Sim parks in the driveway or garage because we placed their car there, it's not like they see a driveway and realise they can park there... so a driveway on a community lot is just like some pathing.

That's just what I have experienced though, someone might have been able to get it to work, if so hopefully they will share! ^_^

Are your driveway and extension touching? It should just slot straight onto it. Does it show as red that you can't place it? Or does it show as green (able to lay) at any point?

You could try using the boolprop ConstrainFloorElevation cheat to see if that will allow you to put a wall flush against the outside foundation. I'm curious to know if you can use that to make the driveway slanted and will the sims still use it (damn work... or I would be home trying)

Is it possible to create a "circle drive?" I've tried this and there's no way to make the extention piece of drive turn "sideways" to cross in front of the house... I take it this is impossible?

Thanks,
Juju

Its a real shame, we cannot put driveways on the right side of the house, prior to the release of Nightlife, I was saving space on every house for a driveway, most were ready on the right side of the house. Only to discover driveways can only be placed on the left-side of the house.

Some houses I found adding a driveway completely impossible, cause I didn't leave enough room on the left-hand side, but unless I decide to do some really expensive demolish work, and demolishing some of the house.

Oh well, I'll leave some of my houses with no car, for the time being...

Oh well, I'll leave some of my houses with no car, for the time being...I'm not sure what you mean, the very first driveway I put down was on the right side of the house. I think you just have to have enough room for the "street" part of the driveway so it doesn't go past the right hand boundry of the lot.

Envious
21st Sep 2005, 1:35 PM
Yeah if you have a really wide block you can have it on the right hand side, but you just have to have room for the long L part on the street..

ConradThe2nd
21st Sep 2005, 1:45 PM
Yeah what I meant it was the Long L Part that goes on the road which always points right that can make it difficult to place on the right-hand side of the lot.

If only if you could rotate driveways like every other object.

Hi Envious,

I have a couple of related questions I hope you can help me with or point me in the right direction.

1. I haven't been able to connect a garage to a house because of interference. I think there is a cheat code for this, but I can't seem to find it. I'm not much of a lot/house builder so this is my first experience.

2. The related problem is that even with the garage detached I have trouble adding a roof across the entire width with out running in to interference. If I choose the automatic roof the game engine will ignore this constraint but then will proceed to messup all the other pre-existing roofs. Waaaahhhh!!!!

As an aside I found that if I had trouble laying a driveway on a lot, I could I save the lot and then exit the game, then the next next time I entered the lot, I was able to proceed. To clarify, I had a problem on some lots where even if the driveway showed up all green and I pressed enter or clicked on the mouse, it would still not take.

Thank you for your assistance.

In relation to question 1, if your house is built on a foundation, it will make it a little more difficult to add a garage attached as walls don't like being laid right beside foundation. You could try using the cheat : 'boolprop ConstrainFloorElevation' and see if you can get it that way, or alternatively, build your house on the ground (minus the foundation).

With putting a roof one, this can be a bit tricky if it's right beside the house, but if you leave two square's free, you should be able to just use the roofing tool (the one where you lay it like you do foundation, not the auto-roof) and it shouldn't interfere with your house.

If you're driveway is showing green, but not staying when you click, make sure you have the 'moveobjects' cheat set to off... that's usually the biggest culprit.

Hope that helps a little bit, let us know how you go...

I'm having the same problem of not being able to place a garage door. The driveway and extension are touching and wherever I move the door to, it is always showing red that it cannot be placed (and I have tried different style driveway and extension so that I know where the intersect is).

Did you build a complete wall on the front? The garage doors are just like other doors in that they go in a wall.

Because it is hard to find the interface between driveway & extension, I normally:
1. Place driveway.
2. Build wall across end of driveway.
3. Place extension
4. Build the rest of the garage.
5. Install garage door between extension & driveway.

As best I can tell, the garage door is actually optional. Cars still "magically" get inside the garage, with or without a door.

This makes it easier for me to know where to put the walls.... I hate counting squares.

Hi, Found this thread looking for some info... I also found other threads, and since one item i found in those threads is asked by several people in this one, I thought i'd add it..

As per placing the garage door and it won't place, where the only suggestion here is exit the game and come back... I think that problem is probably what I read about the MOVEOBJECTS cheat.. if this is ON, you can't place garage doors, if you exit, it turns the cheat off, and voila!! you can add a door.. :) Try just turning it OFF next time?
Hope this helps people endure less game restarts. :)

Can You Change The Direction Of The Driveway? E.g - If You Have A Corner Lot, Can The Driveway Extension Come From The Side Street That Does Not Have The Mailbox Or Trashcan? Or Once The Drive Way Is Laid, Can The Extension Be Turned At A Right Angle So The The Garage Door Is Not Facing The Street, But The House.

I am only using prebuilt lots "Goth" and "Caliente" families.

The Goth lot has a permanent fence around it that I have found no way to remove. The Calinte lot has no fence and I built a driveway with no problem. I have tried to install the driveway on the Goth lot and I cannot do it. Is there any way to install a driveway on a lot with a fence around it, or, is there any way to remove the fence around the Goth lot, or similar lots with a fence?

Thanks.

lowtek & Lucky Bob,

I don't understand why you two can't delete the fences in the lot coz I can definitely delete them either with the wall tool or the fence tool in my base game copy.

Is that an NL bug?

But anyway, you can try to just place an exension piece for the private car portal. The bad side is that no animation of the car entering the parking area will result, but it still works OK.

Lucky Bob

Oh, damn, I didn't know there was a fence tool, otherwise I would've checked it out. And as long as my Money character can buy a car, I'm happy!

Edit: And I can't find the Fence tool... anybody feel like lending a hand? I'm gonna check out Google first, but I don't warranty my researching skills.

Edit #2: Turns out you can just use the wall tool to delete fences (although I still want to find the GUI for it), so I now have a car! :king:

Hi everybody.

I almost went crazy trying to build a driveway/garage, until I find a post where someone said something about the driveway button on the build area of the game.
Until then, I suppose that everybody was capable of build one, but now I'm pretty sure that is not so.

I've just have TS2, no expansions.
I need Nightlife EP to make driveways/garages, didn't I?

Maybe it would be a good idea to pinpoint this to any other newcomers.

Nice job, everybody.

:gjob: :up:

in the title, "TUTORIAL: How to build a Driveway / Garage (Nightlife Only)", it's been assumed people know "(Nightlife Only)" = "Nightlife EP" only.

However, it's a good practice to visit the "site map (http://www.modthesims2.com/forums.php) " and suport (http://www.modthesims2.com/forumdisplay.php?f=32)
So, a newcomer can know how this site is fundumentally constructed and know about the EP things...on the way.

pelonsim,
That may be the case... :)

The title changed, niol.
It wasn't that way the last time I've posted (and visited the site map & suport threads as well).

Thanks anyway.

There is also a way of parking the vehicles on the street:

Thanks so much for explaining how to get the garage to be usable! It was making us nuts! The rest of the tutorial was also helpful, and answered other questions. Thanks very much for taking the time to write it!

Its a real shame, we cannot put driveways on the right side of the house, prior to the release of Nightlife, I was saving space on every house for a driveway, most were ready on the right side of the house. Only to discover driveways can only be placed on the left-side of the house.

Some houses I found adding a driveway completely impossible, cause I didn't leave enough room on the left-hand side, but unless I decide to do some really expensive demolish work, and demolishing some of the house.

Oh well, I'll leave some of my houses with no car, for the time being...
Well actually you can use 'moveobjects on' and put it wherever you want and it just wont play the animation, it will just fade out.

I'm having the same problem as Hasuko, but apparently no one else has had the same problem? The move objects cheat is off and I'm doing what the FAQ says.

I'm still having trouble with a driveway in the Veronaville neighborhood. I tried another lot and it went in just fine, but it's telling me "location out of bounds" when I try on the other lot.. I'm not sure why it's doing this, I'm positioning it the way the FAQ says. :/

There was a download on the Sims 2 site for a car and driveway without NL, you can download them here if you are registered:

I know this topic is eight years old, but I'm putting this out there anyways.

Thank you. I've been trying to find the driveway menu for twenty minutes under floors and stuff, and this REALLY helped!
