    This thread is for house building only

    Main Discussion and help thread can be found here.... http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?p=116628710#post116628710





    This is the first one I did.

    Plantation Style, so yes, its suppose to be square. And I could have built some things a little more even but I like it. This house is built on the only open 60x60 lot

    Especially if the outside walls are on angles, or there is a space between the walls for a walk way, the roofs intersect or stick through walls. Roofs are the only part of this game i hate so far

    hey otters, if you don't mind, turn the grid lines off before you take snapshots. They're distracting. If you can't go into live mode because you don't have a sim on the lot, I think there's a cheat that turns them off/on. Ctrl-Shift-C Help. Should be something with grid in the description.

    Thanks.

    Fucking :werd:

    I'm trying to build a house now where the second floor is only present in a small part of the house, but has a balcony opening up to a big wide space. If you add a gabled roof, it adds another floor of walls, and I wanted the balcony area to open up into that, instead of having the house be twice as tall as necessary. There's no fucking way to do it.

    ty ty.

    Working on my second one. Not going very well so far.

    is that your video card or the game itself, doesn't look smooth at all.

    I've seen a lot of screens which don't seem to look quite as good as the in-game graphics. Not sure why.
