Building apartments on foundation with a private backyard

Post Views: 10,741

FavoriteAdd to favorites      

I have had a few requests to show how to make apartments on a foundation with a private backyard to each, so here it is.

Before we start you will need an invisible fence https://www.modthesims.info/d/179868

Here is the apartment in neighbourhood view, as you can see its not working as it should.

First will have to change the lot back to residential (changeLotZoning residential)

This apartment has two units and we want a backyard for each thats private.

If we tried to change it now (changeLotZoning apartmentbase) it will come up with an error message.

To start you need to delete the stairs for both apartments at the back

Now add a peice of foundation where the stairs were

Now you need to use the invisible fence and enclose the foundation you just built

Delete the two bits of foundation (it wont delete the fencing)

Type move_objects on in the cheat window, and then put back your stairs

The apartment will look the same as before

Now type changeLotZoning apartmentbase in the cheat window, if you have done the correct steps then no message at all will come up

And in neighbourhood view it should show correctly how many apartments there are and the pricing.

And now you will have working apartments on a foundation each with their own private backyards.

You must be psychic smile My daughter has been working on separate rental homes and couldn’t get past the error message. This will be really useful to her, thanks!

I’m gonna need that cheat soon for my Amsterdam project – might follow this tute rather than the MTS one.


Awesome work on this tutorial. I just wrote it down on an index card so I’ll remember it next time I make an apartment on my Sims 2 game. Thanks!!
