Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A long time ago, a red ninja who lived in the Chinese forest began a big and eventful journey to the European continent. His goal was to reach the beautiful mountains of Norway where he would teach the people the secret of his fighting skills.
The result of his adventure can be seen somewhere around the Scandinavian coast, and it was called the Pagoda Paradise.

The ninja past away ten years later and the Chinese residence was overtaken by the villagers in the area who used it as a hotel. However, nobody ever visited the unknown village and the hotel business ended.
Nowadays the building stands empty, but its garden is a perfect place to relax and is therefore maintained by the citizens. Will you be the next possessor of the residence?

Path round building two.

Price: 73 888§
Lot size: 3 x 4
Space: 4 < sims
Houses: 3
Floors: 2
Furnished: No
EP-required: Night life, Open for Business

This is the first lot with that kind of Asian style I've ever built, and I had to spend some hours in front of the computer to complete it. As you can see it's divided in three houses.

1. The main building (2 floors) with bedrooms, toilets and free space.
2. This is the house which I built first. It's just an empty room and can be used for whatever you like.
3. The third and last built house with water leading into it, is meant to be used as the kitchen.

I hope you like my creation!

Wow, the detail is amazing, great work!

Just to be clear, this doesn't require Bon Voyage, does it?
Just wondering since it has the pagoda roofs and you mentioned it was a hotel.

It looks great, though!
#8 Old 9th Sep 2007 at 5:25 PM
Err, the pagoda roofs were made by boolprop, not the roof tool, and the hotel is as a business, i think.

This looks great in-game, I really like it. Thanks so much for this work. :D

Ok, I was just making sure.
I know there are both ways to make pagodas now, so I just wondered which one he used.
#11 Old 9th Sep 2007 at 6:18 PM

Wow, already more comments than most of my uploads have... =O I'm stunned, thank you for all the kind words! This really encouraged me. Hopefully I'll have time to build more of this Chinese inspired style, and of course without Bon Voyage. The only truly method is by using boolprop.

It is neither a hotel, nor a community area, just a simple (green) residence. My intention was only to create a little background story to the building, not to confuse you.

I'm glad to hear that you would like to see my lot among the other featured things, and I did really try to put a lot of extra work with this one. However, apparently you have to work a bit harder, but I'm not giving upright now.

The reasons of why I'm not using that much downloads is...
- I had to remove a lot of CC because of Clean Installer which doesn't work anymore of some strange reason (I have uninstalled it but my computer does not agree with that).
- Some downloads appeared to be pay objects.
- It isn't furnished.
- I try to keep a low CC limit.

Thanks again!

Hey Builder you really created a rich Japanese feel here! And without the use of the Bon Voyage pagoda roof tool I think I like yours better. If you havent already entered a creator challenge you should. Great work!
