Awe, thanks for the kind words. The set looks really dingy, and I mean that in a good way.

Getting late here, so I will download and test it in game tomorrow.

The "outdoor" objects such as hot tubs, garden furniture, trees and plants will show their original color or flashing blue colour when in neighborhood view, and I believe this is also true of the stairs.

Interesting. It reminds me of a complete house of sets done in camo for the sims 1. That was a neat way to furnish a house for the military sims. The industrial housing might be suitable for criminal, science, and slacker sim careers.

I'm hoping no one else is having the blue chair problem? Anyone?

This is very cool, it will really be helpful in many stories. I can forsee interesting things happening with your set as the background. Great work.

Okay the blue chair is not from this set, so we're good there....everything is working fine. Say are you gonna give us some more? maybe with a bit of rust? Anyhow, think you....It looks good as a set to use for those trashy sims moving up a bit in the world, LOL
