Couture Condos is accepting new residents! You have your choice between a one-bed, 1.5-bath unit or a two-bed, two-bath unit, both on the fourth floor. Building amenities include rooftop pool and greenhouse space, community laundry and gym spaces, an empty room for your hobby items, and a steam room for soothing those sore muscles. Parking in the rear of the building. All appliances upgraded. Floors 2, 3, and 4 are apartment floors. The player units are on the 4th floor. Currently the one-bedroom unit is selected as the player unit, but can be changed to the two-bed unit by moving the lot markers. Floors 2 and 3 include level skip markers to expedite travel to the the 4th floor, but these markers can be deleted if you want to get to know your NPC neighbors better!

To look like the photos you have to have the items listed below. If not, the game will replace them with comparable items. (Check out the list to see what was used where. You still may be able to download even if you're missing some things.)

To adjust lot markers on an apartment:
● Type control+shift+C
● Type "restrictbuildbuyinbuildings false" (without quotation marks) and hit enter
● Delete/move the hidden room markers in the apartment you'd like to make the player unit (DO NOT MOVE/DELETE THE COMMON ROOM MARKERS IN THE HALLWAYS)
● Add hidden room marker to apartment you don't want to live in
● Shift+click on the empty apartment door and select "Make NPC Door"
● Type control+shift+C
● Type "restrictbuildbuyinbuildings true" (without quotation marks) and hit enter

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.

How did you manage to build higher than 5/6 floors?

It's technically still five floors. You can make the first floor as tall as you want if you use constrainfloorelevation false, and then build the rest of your floors on top of that. I just decorated the outside to make it look like there were more floors on the bottom than there actually are!

I see. I honestly thought there was a mod or hidden cheat that allows one to build more levels. Thank you for sharing!

Somewhere, some sim has found out that there is a shining green diamond hovering above...
