Default A Simple Way With Underground Garages
Hi folks,

I threw this together but I think it adresses most of the issues relating to garages and foundations. No cheats whatsoever are needed to make this work, though moveobjects is described to reposition the mailbox/trashcan.

Like I said. I've thrown it together but if the powers that be here feel that it is worthwhile I will redo the whole thing and optimise it for smallest file size (and make a .doc version as well.

The zip contains an html file plus a folder of images

Please let me have opinions good, bad or indifferent cos, I have yet to see this technique describe in any other tutorial ...
Download - please read all instructions before downloading any files!

mirelly,

This is really a very neat tutorial. Smart uses on the default walls and the wall-foundation.
Is it good to start another new tutorial thread for this tutorial at build mode? Then, just wait for a moderator to move it into this sub-forum...

Default Garages
The simpler the better. I am willing to give it a try. I got tired of looking at my nightlife box and finally installed it. It has been calling my names for months. Of course, what does every house need? A new car!!!! No garage, that right..... no car. Yummy look at all the cars I downloaded. I have a lot of work to do. So I thank you. Hummmm maybe I need a new neighborhood?
