These are great tutorials. The split-level trick was pretty awesome.

That landing tutorial is interesting, with the way lights flow, it would work nicely with a landing and then use the foundation as livingspace, with the shortest wall it looks like the real landing in any small cottage. It can also work in a big mansion as the main staircase. The door still has to be above on the wall itself.

Unlike this creator I would probably fit that door on the landing, so just to expand the landing area. It's more efficient I think, more room down in the foundation and less wasted space.

I tried a cottage with that, and don't expect to have a kitchen down there. It needs half a tile to the wall. Pretty silly to have a kitchen that does not meet the wall.

Yes, like a split level from the 70's where you walked in the front door and either had to go up a half flight of stairs, or down.

My uncle and aunt had a split level house. It was on four different levels. Crazy! Only the three (tiny) bedrooms were on the same level.

I don't know if we had that much split leveling in my country. I remember my aunt though, she lived in a terraced house where you had to walk up on one side of the hallway and down on the other. In the 70's we had these "house bank" houses. They had to follow very strict guidelines and for that reason ended up being very boring.

I made a tutorial, because I stumbled on a hallway on two floors with equally distributed lights in the hole room. I just have to go back to the original now to fix that Smile It can probably be used for bigger rooms as well.

Great tut, and great timing.  I spent 2 hours last night trying to open up the area around my staircase to two levels.  I tried everything.  I got so frustrated I quit the game.  Now I can go back tonight and fix it.  BlowingKiss

The doorway tut is interesting, I need to try that once. I don't think what she writes about roofs in the hallway tut is really true. It again depends on how you make it, but I may remember it wrong. It all has to be rooms for the game to enclose the space. You should probably put the next floor on top and then delete it if you don't need it.

I made a tutorial on moo houses, because of the cheat objects tend to swap places, but there has been found a treatment for it. I just needed to figure out that for myself and made a tutorial. It's also a farm with plants transferring through the gallery.

Hello Ranma hello6
If I read this right your Topic: how i remove houses from maps with the question:
@ranma6899 wrote:

You are asking how to make empty lots so you can build on them.
To even start the process you need to place your own Sim anywhere on the map.
It does not matter where or if you even choose to play that Sim.
Save as you normally would then go into Manage Worlds on the menu.
Choose the lot you want to use then go into Build Mode on that lot.
At the top click on the icon shaped like a house. To the far right is a Bulldozer.
Select that to totally clear everything off the lot to start fresh.

Probably will not have more lots in the existing areas. Maybe a few will be added later via EPs but only time will tell. As far as "losing generation homes" not sure what you mean. Once you get the lot how you want it just load to the Gallery. Then you can download it again later when you need it.

They are unsafe, they delete first and don't fix it after. We lost lots of sites last they had a cleanup, they had some silly mafia or whatever they called themselves claiming it was against EA Eula, it's really not much they have to check, and why bother doing EA's job, like they don't have their own lawyers. They haven't done anything with it since who knows what, shouldn't that be a clue. Can't be that hard asking EA about it either. It's a well known company ... on the other hand perhaps they did.

Anyways, you should use sims sites instead, they know what we're dealing with. The gallery or perhaps mts/tsr. Someone who runs their own show, not even I do that. That doesn't sound very humble Laughing

It's so complicated these days with all the copyrights and legality around. I know mts has had to change some rules because of youtube and cloudflare. I don't even remember, but I've read about some people just giving up because of the constant rights always by someone you can't really negotiate with. Like I wouldn't even try to negotiate with music companies on youtube. Some people say it's possible, but really for little me? Some companies on the net just delete and ask when it's too late. I've had to do that on mts as well. It's not easy when you don't really know what the law says. I'm hoping someone has it somewhat organized, and don't just delete for a bad word. That's why I use sites I trust like mts/tsr. They have a policy and should have some connections with EA ... hopefully.
