Well I wanted to make use of the Art Deco elements that came with Mansions and Gardens so I came up with this modern building that had an art deco facade.  This is a luxury condo, each with two storeys, and 3 bedrooms. Some have more space than others, but all are fully furnished and includes all the skill builders.  The suites are themed according to four Sim personality traits… Pleasure, Fortune, Family and Knowledge.

One of the reasons I wanted to build this particular lot was because i wanted to have apartments with garages so my apartment dwelling Sims may actually own cars. Thus, the Pleasure and Fortune suites both have their own garages.  The building also has a playground and a gym, with space for yoga classes. It has also been retrofitted with solar panels so that should help ease up on your Sims bills.

Because of the design of this lot, Mansions and Gardens is definitely a required stuff pack for this building to look right.

Why Hullo Thar!

Welcome to SimTopi, my Sims blog.

To start off, I’ve been playing Sims since the original Sims years ago. I’ve played a lot of Sims 2 when it first came out, but computer problems forced me to lose my game, and my neighbourhood.  Since I am addicted to this game, the only sensible thing to do would have been to restrict playtime for a number of years. Only recently, with the aquirement of Apartment Life, did I start up again.

I’m probably very late into getting back into the game (enough to start up a blog about it), but keep in mind, that eventually I will be upgrading to Sims 3, so I may as well see how far we get here.

SimTopi is the neighbourhood of Sims I am playing. It consists of a suburb and an urban village inspired by the various urban villages downtown Toronto, such as Queen West, Leslieville, The Annex. I am one by one building the neighbourhood with trendy condos and restoration apartments as well as graduating Sims from Sim State University to fill them with overeducated hipster socialites.

So this blog is totally about that.

I also wanted somewhere permanent to house my Lot uploads. I like sharing my apartments. I’m going to go ahead and say it here: some buildings I see on the Sims 2 official site exchange are too damn ridiculous. Seriously, I don’t care how rich your Sims are, wtf do you need 6 helipads on the same lot for? Really?

And there I am. Welcome to SimTopi!
