Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Requires NL, OfB and Pets (OfB is probably not strictly required though -- I only see one mirror and one outdoor light from OfB --, so you could try without).
No custom content.

Three really small, really cheap apartments in a very small building on a very small lot, each of them furnished for 1–2 sims. The building has a shared basement and a small back yard with room for one driveway (I recommend frillen's invisible one); note that *only* the ground floor apartment has access to the yard. No lift. If you de-furnish one of the apartments, you can probably use this as a "double starter" (I think it's well possible to get the price below 40.000§).

This is not an AL lot, although I guess it could be converted into one. See my Backdoor Lane 10 post for info on non-AL apartments.

Each apartment has

1 x double bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining/living room

The one on the top floor also has a small storage room (accessible from the bedroom); the one on the ground floor has a veranda with access to the yard, kitchen and dining/living are also spearate in that one.

Playtested in NL+OfB+Pets; note that I had to remove the roof over the front porch since it rendered the stairs above inaccessible and forgot to make a new screenshot after that. The difference isn't very big though.

This lot is shrunk with Mootilda's LotAdjuster (v1.1); you can easily enlarge the lot with that if your sims want more outdoor space.


Lot Size: 1x2
Lot Price: 48.503§

Additional Credits:
The roof recolour shown in the screenshots is by Neveah223; it is not included with the lot but I'm attaching it as a separate zip.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
