View Full Version : Trouble with lower elevation
25th Jan 2012, 9:36 AM
So I am not sure how to go about doing this house. I feel in love with the French Tudor style of it but the lower elevation is given me some issues. I have tried a few things but doesn't seem to be doing it justice. Any advice?

You'd need to build the upper level (on ground) partly on foundation, partly with walls, using CFE cheat (contrainfloorelevation). Then you'd need to do part of the lowest level with foundations as walls, and at least the entries with walls.
You can google CFE, or use the site tutorials, or even watch a few videos (link in my signature) :)

You can begin by raising the terrain by the garage and then putting foundation on. When you think you have the right hight you just drag the foundation across where you want your house. Keep the foundation where you want the ground to meet the wall. You have to replace the foundation with regular walls if you want to use the basement. Just use the hammer for that. Place objects on the foundation walls with the cheat "moveobjects on".
When you want to make the garage you have to replace the foundation with walls again as Armiel says above. If you want to use the basement you can have a look at this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTOnOMfv-08

Thank you all for the advice. As it stands I was going to place the house and garage on ground level. It was the "walk out basement" That I was having issues with. It is on the floor plan as 2nd elevation but every method I had tried did weird stuff with the walls. I will watch and read more and see what comes of it. Thanks again!
