Factory Starter

Embarrassingly enough, this is my first and only starter, created around the same time that I had constructed Gates Factory.

Admittedly, I’ve been a shameless and overly enthusiastic fan of the money cheat who usually spares little thought to the costs of my lots. However, in having finally constructed a starter house of my own, I’ve developed an even deeper appreciation of the challenge that builders face in designing one.

The Factory home comes fully furnished with the basic starter necessities and a driveway.

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

I will never be able to get over how beautifully detailed your lots are, and this starter home is no exception. This is an amazing house, especially for someone who is supposed to be retired-ish. Thank you for sharing it.

This makes me want to make a whole neighborhood of industrial, urban buildings for my edgier (but not wealthy) Sims. The detail is amazing and it looks absolutely beautiful even in its starkness. Thanks so much for sharing.

The new Apartment Life neighborhood will be exactly an industrial urban one (partly). This lot will be a perfect starter for the AL EP - a shining star of Belladonna Cove...

Oh how much I covet this building. But I don't have the eps, nor the space the hold them. So I'll just stare at them and imagine...
Lovely, lovely work you do.

I'd been waiting for months until I got Pets just to download this lot, I noticed it when it was first on MTS front page, and now it will be in my game Thank you!

WOW! I just stuck this in my neighbourhood and moved in a rocker sim based on the Drew who's been on the featured page lately. It looks fantastic! Definitely for any wannabe punk musician.
