Cool and scary at the same time. Not advanced at all... This simpleness along with the excellent use of black and red walls. It's brilliant!

The scary part is the feeling of that you are trapped in the unstopable technology of the future... And if that didn't made sense, just ignore it Pity there is so many expansions involved, I would really like to take a closer look at this one.

Seriously you're one of the best modern builders I've ever run into. Your creations are always so neat and original, the best example of unique architecture, and you've got a taste for interior design.
Marvellous

I was so happy to see how easy this was to play! Not overly graphic heavy to where things are crawling along

I noticed ONE thing, though, when I was playing the far right (on the end) home. Other sims (NPCs) that were walking around in that little sitting area, etc started complaining and waving their hands about something. I couldn't tell what it was that was crossed out in red in their thought bubbles, but it was in front of the apartment....in front of the bench..and while they are trying to to the back door of that unit...to name a few. It was as if something is "in their way". Have no idea. WEIRD. They eventually worked it out but the next NPC that came along got into the same issue.

thank you all
but this lot is not scary
maybe pics are too much dark, and background to much distressing for the skyscraper, but in the game it seems not so terrifying

So, you find a sort of "impediment" in this area?
(sorry but I'm not english and at the beginning, reading your message, I thought that the problem was in the fourth apartment)




Between bench and 4th block there are not other objects than those you see in the pic, all maxis objects. Maybe your NPC want to enter in any apartment? weird. Or enter in your garden? Have you put something very attractive in your private garden? (example a pool with the cheat aptsublotspecifictoolsdisabled?)
Npc can also complain and clamour for an impediment located very far from their position.
Btw, I tested the lot with two families and I had not this problem...let me know.

ok..maybe i've understood:
on top of the grill I often put a firealarm (an hydrant), also in open air: it's possible that your npcs want to make a joke with it? they can't do it because they can't reach the hydrant (it's exactly ON the grill, in the same square, so not reachable by sims), then they complain.
The same happened in many dorms of mine, i put intentionally the hydrant on a counter, in this way cows don't continue flooding the room
