Hi Folks!

This 2x2 Compact is my first downtown lot, inspired by a WhiteCloud request in Compact XVI thread - he asked for Nightlife concrete terrain lots. The NL "concrete jungle" landscape is very inspiring for modern lots builders, specially for those who like to experiment old-new blendings. In this sub-series, like Compact Country, I'll try some experiments within the basic characteristics of Compact Series.

Here are some facts of this Compact:
1. It was designed as two separate apartments, one in each floor. The great Tunaisafish's Smartdoor let us do the trick. Of course if you don't want two apartments, just put some walls down and you'll have a big house for a big family
2. Each apartment has a decoration style. The 1st floor is pretty much traditional, except for the livingroom, thanks to the irresistible Nengi's Mottled Brick Wall. The 2nd floor is a little tribute to Ailias' "minimalist white" style. I've been using his great creations and in this lot I've extended the usage to the most of the furniture. My lots wouldn't be the same without his build mod tools, and that's my way to thank him for his buy mode itens too :D
3. There's space enough for two cars in the basement garage (one sideways) and some of the lot's areas are common - the laundry, the elevator's hall and the roof. The roof is spacious enough for almost everything (tipically bbq and sunbath), including a solarium, or gym. Just use your imagination and build whatever you like there
4. The laundry's stuff is not included. Most of the objects are deco only, except for the outstanding Katy_76's washing machine which really works! (see picture bellow) Yeah, that's right - Katy created a washing machine and sink which your sims can really use to wash their clothes (with animation). Just pay a visit to her new site and you'll find her great creations (free registration required) and a very well built forum.

I've uploaded two versions of the lot (furnished and unfurnished). In the furnished version (120.716 smls) you'll find all the Maxis' itens in the pics, most CCs from MTS2 and some CCs from another sites, distributed under permission. The non included itens are listed below with links, so that you can dl them later. The unfurnished version (41.497 smls) contains only the lamps and window frames. Thank you all talented creators who make our game more enjoyable and a special thanks to those who generously let us upload their creations with our lots.
