****Corrected a minor detail on the top floor of both blocks. Downloads are Version 2****

For Apartment Life.

Built this block based on a towerblock in the UK. Same dingy narrow hallways,  noisy elevator, and cramped living space, yet strangely appealing for simlife. Just enough room for a couple (and maybe a cat), except the penthouse apartment on the 6th floor which has an extra room.  Enough room (just about) on the roof for sunbathing. Basketball court on the roof. Car wreck in the street. Great views from upper levels. I placed mine on the hill above the lady statue, as you can see from the pics.

Looks like a UK towerblock minus the wee in the lift and the graffiti. Smiley

There are two versions of this block. The 6 floors block and the 10 floors block. The block with 10 floors is difficult to play on the upper levels (above 6) because it jumps around on the scroll (unless there's a cheat I don't know about) ... the 10 floor is still playable if you zoom in on the sim you're using you can get around on the upper floors quite easily. Takes a while for the apartments to fill up with NPC sims, about three hours sim time on my game. They move in from the top down.

No CCs in either block, no known issues (so far). Ten-Floors Block tested by Mr Cooke - that creepy sim with the dodgy goatee. Any problems with it, kill him.

That second to last pic, that's my sim chatting up the neighbour downstairs on her balcony. Smiley

This is my first upload, and probably my last. Enjoy.

Notes:
***If you have any problems getting downloaded apartment lots to show up in your game, do this: Call up the cheat window (CTRL-Shift & C), then type Changelotzoning apartmentbase. And save back to the neighbourhood. You'll see the little spinning apartments icon above the lot you were just on.
***You can rent apartments furnished by using this cheat: Boolprop testingcheatsenabled true. Then hold Shift whilst clicking on the door of the apartment you want to rent, and you'll see the option to rent furnished. Don't forget to disable testingcheats again afterwards with Boolprop testingcheatsenabled false. Or download Carrigon's apartment door mod (although I haven't tried that yet). Not sure of the URL, but a quick google should turn it up.
***I created this with all EPs installed, except UNI.

Yeah I wish Maxis had included an animation for Sims to fall, as another way for a Sim to die. Would have been funny to see a Sim plummet off a balcony and splat on the street below, especially from that height. Smiley
