Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
zomg my first lot upload, enjoy the outcome of my painfully hard work with super-duper details!

When we went to New York for a holiday, our cab driver asked us whether we had given him the right address when he pulled in front of a building that looked exactly like the one in the middle.. New York is amazing in all of it's dirtyness and weird impractical stuff, so let's have our sims enjoy some of it too!

The lot has three buildings, which the shortest and the middle one are just basically deco-buildings only. The taller red bricked includes a groovy apartment, and a storage space that can be used as a space for band practices and parties, or as artistic studio or whatever you want and need for your simmies!

The apartment has an elevator that goes to two floors. The other floor is for NPC characters and the other for your simmies.
The apartment is decorated in groovy city style, and it has one room that is currently used as an office, but it can easily be changed into an extra-bedroom. There's also the iconic fire ladder thingies that you see everywhere in NYC, but they obviously are just deco so don't forget the fire alarms.
There are also 4 parking spaces.

The other deco building is a house under heavy renovation, but in the ground floor is a guitar shop. The other building is purely decoration only, and your sims can't enter neither of them not even by mistake, so they won't get stuck there or anything.

I've used decoration objects from WA and couple of AMB objects, so the lot works okay without the two EP's, but you'll lose a lot of the details of the outside. Late night is a must though, the lot isn't meant to be run without it, so don't even try it!

Destroy pattern by Around the sims 3

I have used codes while building, so be careful not to remove parts of the buildings (like the fire stairs, elevators..) since you won't be able to get the as they were if you aren't experienced in using codes in build mode!

Unfurnished 7,589

Number of bedrooms:

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you so much, it's lovely to know that there are people who like my style (=obsessive need for details). Look forward to the world I am working on... It is coming together great this time (I've started it over), and it should be finished before end of summer.

ryanrocks281 Well, it depends on how willing you are to re-do some stuff yourself. Most of the exterior wall textures require WA to show up, also some interior ones too. So you would need to texture them yourself with something else. So the lot will work just fine, you are just going to need to replace the WA stuff with something that you got.
Oh, and the code for editing stuff outside your unit is restrictBuildBuyInBuildings false (just in case if you wouldn't know that).

You got the hipster decor right on. The interior looks like every apartment in Williamsburg. Great job!

Yay! Poverty, here I COME! (Playing an 8-sim starving artist family who will move in despite the lack of proper resources [beds, showers, etc.] and find riches!)

They are called fire-escape stairs, which you see in New York buildings.

The only thing I need to pick your brain on is how the hell did you put the fire escape stairs without a bottom landing floor square? I'm trying to build a similar type of building and wanted to add this detail, but my game tells me the floor square is needed. I have all cheats on that I need, testingcheats, moo, rbbb, etc., but I still cant figure it out. Help??
