Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A baroque style domed basilica - a baroque style building, which situates on a 3 by 5 lot, that features an atrium covered by a dome and connected by a nave to the entrance.

it's not yet furnished (it doesn't even have a garden), so you'll have to do it yourself. and by the way, it doesn't have to be a church (it obviously can be) since as far as i know, not all basilicas are churches, and it doesn't even have a cross for a floor plan.

and of course, this is a community lot building. technically though, you can convert it into a residential building, but you'll have to look for the tutorial within these forums, as i don't know where it is to link to off hand.

note 1: the nave (the grand hall way) can have a second floor if you so desire, and so does the atrium. in fact, you can fill in all the floors as long as you can see those whitely outlined squares when you were in the build mode. but becareful not to turn on the "boolProp testingCheatsEnabled" cheat while you were at it as it might deform the roof, depending on what you were doing. and do mind the ceiling when you try to put walls in directly under the ceiling of the nave or the dome as neither of them has a flat top (you need to edit the wall script to put walls right under the ceiling of both of them).

note 2: the building has so many lights that some lights might not turn on at night until you use "turn all on" twice. it didn't happen when i just let the auto light do it however.

finally, for those who download this, do me a favour: please leave a note on what you'll be doing with the building (i'm nosy). and of course, please give a rating that you see fit.

  • 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.
