First of all, I wanna thank everyone again who helped me to improve the apartment.

So, here it is: My first apartment for the Sims 3.
It's an apartment built in the city, so it would fit perfectly in one of your cities. I got a little bit inspired by the New York apartments, but made my own version of a city apartment.



The apartment is four floors high, but the apartment you can use is on the third floor.
When you enter the apartment by using the stairs, there's a big hall. Here is the mailbox of the apartment, some paintings and a plant. You can use the elevator to go to the third floor.
The aparment has one bedroom, a livingroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and TWO balconies.
I decorated it in pink style, but if you move a guy-sim in, you can change the colors any way you want to.




The apartment is built on a 20x20 lot. The price furnished is 27.732 and 3.967 unfurnished. Yes, it's cheap. :D
I used three CC's, those are all not included.

- The first is the rug in the livingroom. This is created by Stylist Sims. You can find it at the bottom of the page.
- The second are the plants in the hallways. Those are created by Simpossible. They are in the package of Rest Bedroom set.
- The third are the stairs at the back of the apartment. Those are the 'firestairs' but you can't use them actually. The stairs are created by Lisen801.

I hope you like the apartment and please comment!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I love this apartment, but after I moved my sim in it, she ended up outside of the hallway in a darkened spot and couldnt get out. I couldnt move her.

There's one, i'll make a link tomorrow. Or you can search it yourself by typing in google apartment guide mod the sims.
Maybe you can find it.


EDIT:

If you didn't find it, here is it.

The other doors are locked, so there's no way possible that the Sims would go in the other rooms.
How to lock those doors, is explained in the guide. I gave the link earlier.

It is awesome that you took time to do this! I don't think that I would have the patience, so I appreciate it when people are willing to do this and then share it with others. Thank you!
