Split Level Home - 3 BR 1.5 BA

This is a 3 BR 1.5 BA split level home that I based off my parent's home. Obviously it isn't identical, but as close as I could get. It is partially furnished as you can see from the screenshots. This house took awhile to build. I had to use a couple of different cheats to get it to work properly. I also made a custom brick recolor for the brick part. It is a beige version of the london chimney brick wallpaper.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I LOVE it. How did you choose the height of the levels?

I used a tutorial I found at TSR here. http://beta.thesimsresource.com/mis...GroundEntry.doc and then I used about ALL of my patience trying to get it to work.

Sorry, it does require nightlife. I thought I clicked the checkbox for NL, but it didn't seem to work. I think the ALL box means you need all of the expansions.

I'm glad you all liked my childhood home.

I tried this a while back right after nl came out, and the problem I kept running into was that they wouldn't let me put walls on squares that joined levels.....can you tell me how you got around that?

None of my interior walls connect to the joining tiles. The exterior walls I joined with the boolrop cheat in the tutorial. Where they join there is some stretching that makes it look a little wierd, but with the right bush or tree you can usually cover it up.

The half bath is downstairs. There is a shower there, so maybe if you'd like to get technical, I should have said it was a 1.75 bath. :p

The staff should really determine once and for all whether "ALL" means works with all or needs all... I've got so much stuff that crashes my poor EP free game. :grumble:
