Cwirsing, any chance you can convert this to HTML or PDF format? Pretty please?
Not everyone uses Microsoft products, and none of my programs recognise the graphics in this DOC file. Or maybe I'm the only one not using Word!
And thanks for making this available, even if you decide not to convert it.

When it is on the ramp it sinks into the hill or goes over it depending on how steep it is but that does not affect it from doing anything.

Thanks for the HTML version, Cwirsing!
Time to try this tutorial out (I uninstalled everything, and now starting fresh. It was a good time for some house-cleaning).

As I was playing my game today with my sloped driveway I realized that when you use the house again that you made have a sloped driveway it turns back into the original color of the driveway. It will still be sloped though.

While I was experimenting with the constrainFloorElevation cheat I made this house. It sinks into the hill on its way out. This does not affect anything. This is much trickier to make. I will end up making a tutorial for this or I might just keep it a secret.

Cool - the sloping down into the house is very realistic! Good job.

yes if you type in the cheat boolprop constrainfloorelevation false
you can get your driveway up or down, here is sample of an uphill driveway, not to much of an uphill but you can see it.

I do have the NightLife Patch Installed.

Hallo cwirsing
I remarked we came to the same building intention nearly at the same time (with a house even on the same day!). I tested my "construction" I made some weeks ago only few minutes ago. And also I was curious to find out wether it works further on. I could not see any problems. (with the installed nl-patch) besides the described movement of the car.
Maybe you would like to compare our attempts. See the 4examples for basement garages.
Have fun with the sims
