This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Well its been a long haul getting this lot created, and I'm finally done with it. The day I happened on the picture of it on the internet I knew I had to make it into a sim lot. That day was roughly 6 months ago. <sigh>

Today I present to you a lot that in real life is the set of a play, but it totally rocks and was actually created, so why can't my simmies live in it? I've included my reference pictures at the bottom for you to compare. I spent months trying to make it identical to the reference pictures. As for the name, I didn't name it, the internet gave it it's name, so please don't tell me its insulting or whatever, I mean no disrespect whatsoever. Also, this would be freaking amazing in real life!

Each little trailer is decorated in its own unique color theme and I tried to keep CC to a minimum using only what was absolutely necessary (even still, the list is long). The numbers in the pictures correspond with the floor plan photo so you can see where each trailer is on the lot. (Numbers were given roughly based on location and level.)

To make this lot uber perfect, I needed to create a few objects that I just couldn't find anywhere else. There are 6 new objects (included in the lot but also downloadable separately) for you to play with.

Wood Pallet (Surface Misc.)
This object was created to be able to hold anything (it can support a refrigerator!) and to be stackable. I think it would go great in a store room or warehouse. I've added 2 recolors in the separate rar that aren't used in the lot. The mesh and texture was created from the UNI bonfire and reworked, Maxis match! BaseGame Compatible.
Vertex: 316 Faces: 158 (Low poly)

Lil Garden Lattice Windmill (Deco Misc)
This little windmill ACTUALLY SPINS!!! It is intended for placement in your sim gardens, the silly owners of this lot have placed it on their roof instead! This was cloned and extensively reworked from the MG wind turbins. My version will NOT pay your bills (its just a decorative little windmill) but it is BaseGame Compatible.
Vertex: 801 Faces: 511 (Medium poly)

Folded Umbrella (Deco Misc)
This umbrella is closed. I have seen many on this site that are open, but for my picture I needed closed umbrellas. This umbrella sits on the ground or on tables but nothing else. BaseGame Compatible.
Vertex: 170 Faces: 121 (Low poly)

Just a Pole (Build Columns)
I needed a regular old metal pole column to support some of the upper decks. I also needed to somehow make my outdoor lights taller, so using the lampost base as my guide I was able to accomplish both tasks at the same time. BaseGame Compatible
Vertex: 76 Faces: 46 (Low poly)

Solar Panel (Electronic Misc)
Apparently we have Eco-Friendly Rednecks living here. I've created two versions, one is BaseGame Compatible (and that's the one that is included in the lot) and the other requires MG. The meshes and textures (and GUID) are the same for both, but the MG one will actually help pay your bills. Please download the MG one if you can. Delete the other from your downloads folder before playing this lot and the one will replace the other.
Vertex: 108 Faces: 62 (Low poly)

Clothes Line (Deco Misc)
I needed a clothes line and there are a few here on MTS, but none were the right shape and most had clothes on them already. The metal and the line are separately recolorable. BaseGame Compatible.
Vertex: 1906 Faces: 1572 (Medium poly)

I hope you enjoy playing this lot as much as I enjoyed building it. It was a long/fun/stressful/exciting/frustrating trip, and I'm glad I came through it alive. Thanks so much everyone who kept pushing me to keep going.

I remember running across the picture of the actual place that looked like this.. it was about two years ago online someplace.. and I laughed out loud. I couldn't help but let out a little squeal when I saw your Sims version of it. FANTASTIC!

This is so awesome! And I so needed that clotheslines! And here goes my resolve not to download -one- thing anymore after painfully weeding out my downloads-folder (and weeping while at it!). Oh well... but every Redneck-Sim has a right to live the way he wants to, right?
Thanks a lot Phaenoh for your time and patience and sharing with us!

I couldn't comment right away. I was rolling around on the floor laughing. This is soooooooo messed up and sooooooo right! All it's missing is the WTFBBQ Grill and some of Bink13y's nasty Trailer Trash sims. Oh! I'm wrong. This is for the high-class rich redneck. It'd make a great apartment building.

I am so jealous - I saw this picture on the internet a few months ago and thought about doing the EXACT same thing. But school and moving and being away from the Sims took me away from it! You did a great job!

I've just seen this for the first time. I thought you'd be interested in seeing THIS thread at Neighborly Sims (my own forum):

and this thread at Deb's Sims Stuff

As you can see, you're not the only one who found the original picture of the Redneck Apartments an interesting challenge!!! :-)

haha this is great. I tweaked it a little so that it could be an apartment complex

six apartments. VERY SMALL apartments, but still having everything necessary. I had to add a few fridges and change the doors, but it's great. :P

Phaenoh...I can't even begin...sim lot building is something I, as a bit of an architecture freak, have always adored, and "fought" for as a legit form of art. This lot goes above and beyond anything I could even dream of. It's beautiful, it's creative, the replication is so dead-on. In all its sheer brilliance, it looks like it was a project to make you laugh, cry, and sing songs that should have been banned back in the seventies (I don't know, my wit factor is next to zero). Keep up the AMAZING work! I especially love the windmill.
