I noticed that with a Community Lot some of my downloads aren't showing up..a lot of my Appliances are not there and some of my cabinets..and counters..and Islands..I'm not liking that..that is why my Appliances are black..

So off the go find some other things to put in my over loaded CC folders lol..

Sam,

I love this style of apts especially the pool area. Great Job!!

I'm wondering why the meshes for your appliances and cabinets did not
load.  This happened to me ages ago on a lot I shared.  I had to include a
separate folder in the zip with the meshes.  Gamers had to copy and move the
meshes into the sims download folder 'before' uploading the lot.

Ok girls..I just found out something I didn't know and I don't think I read it anywhere in Suzanna's and Marie's Apartments comments..or I might have misread something or missed it all together lol..

Carmen sent me a cute pm.. giggle it started out with the

subject a cautious question ...

May be I missunderstood your description or got your intention wrong, so please don´t get cheesed with me ... scared I thought that in it's self was cute summerB9

---------
Since I have never made an Apartment complex before or anything other than parks and graveyards I had started this complex as a Community Lot..thinking this is what I was supposed to do..thank heavens Carmen came to the rescue ding

I may just bulldoze it down and start over since I might have gotten the wrong doors/fence and anything else that might not work for this..and I am still on a overload CC shopping download spree funny2

Ok back to CC download over drive.. cheerleader

PostSamantha61 on Wed Feb 01, 2017 1:43 am

This is what Carmen sent me..

There´s no need to begin again - you allways can tur a community lot into a residential and vice versa. But for apartment buildings you should choose a residential in the beginning (and if it´s only for all the objects that are not shown in or perpared for community lots *gg).

So if your building is a community lot at the moment, you only have to change it into a residential.
Save your building (so that it isn´t lost if something should go wrong), then rename it (also for safety cause - if everything is ok afterwards you can rename it with the 'old name'). And then use the cheat
ChangeLotZoning residential.

Now your building should have become residential. You can check the mailbox in front of the building to verify. And the lot colour should have turned from blue to green, but I don´t know, whether you can see those colour differences. If it doesn´t work at once, leave into the neighbourhood and then go again into the lot (sometimes changes are only shown after this step). If it still hasn´t worked, try the cheat again (sometimes the game needs more tries *g).

Now you can build and furnish your flats with all the stuff you like.

And when you´re ready with this, you turn the building into an apartment lot with the cheat ChangeLotZoning apartmentbase. But I really suggest, to do this at the end, because after it´s turned into an apartment lot, you can´t make building changes without using other cheats.

What you have to regard concerning the doors and fences, I`ll describe in a separate message. So you have not so much to read in one time.

I hope this helps others..when learning how to do a Community Lot for the first time..

Thank you Carmen for all your help.. bigsmile

I never even thought about that, Sam... I always use residential lots in ts4 (even when I did the Tea House) as I prefer residential objects and any of the commercial kitchen items I like have been converted for residential use...

Great job, by the way. I like how you changed the floorplan and have added a third floor. Cool!!!

Carmen is going to send me a pm on doors/fences and things like that to make sure I am doing this right..

Carmen is right in the she writes and it is not easy to know everything. I guess Carmen also reminds you that you have to have the apartment doors and not normal that I have, but it is not to be moving into my apartment in any case. I do not quite understand what you mean by that our pictures are different.
You have done a great job and the open floor plan is great because it has become more light.

I could Suzanne..but I don't know what doors to use these doors just don't say Apartments only or Community Lots only..and I can change the lot venue as well..but I am one of those people that I just start over and do it right all at once..instead of changing things and then find that what I changed I shouldn't have and vise a versa lol..so I just start over lol..

So now trying to figure out how do I know what doors to use how do you know what doors to use..omgosh maybe I should just do this as a family Apartments only and do them as Residential instead..

I don't know...

Let's see if I understood everything right now.
Apartment doors have a small rug outside and they must have if you are going to use the apartments to play with. Do you have a patio at the back so you must have a fence around it and it's enough to not be able to enter through the back door.

So I have to put a rug outside the front door..I have never seen rugs outside on the in game apartments?????

I do have a patio on the back and will make sure that nobody can go back there except the people that live their..

I seen your pictures today..and I am using the same fence..Marie..

I started over last night..and I am not liking it..for some reason it didn't come out the same as before..all the apartments are 7 squares wide except for one and it's 8..I don't like that at all..and now I can't get the swimming pool in like I had before..so back to the drawing board lol..

No Sam, the door has a rug already.... you just need to choose the apartment door. Can you set your game to show you only stuff that came out with the apartment EP? That might just make it easier for you to choose the right door.
Isn't it funny that when you do something over you never get the same results as the first time? It is so frustrating! pull hair out But, dontworry you will get it just right I know that!

I just got to thinking..do I have to have all these things if I owned the Apartment Complex..and if I did how would I go about being a landlord to these apartments..

Do I still have to put it as a Community Lot later after building it..or just leave it as a Residential and move into one of them and rent the rest out..how do I do this..

I´d say you do too much thinking giggle , cause you don´t have to do anything like this, Sam. smile201

As soon as you´re ready with building, furnishing and everything else ... just befrore you like to play with your apartment building/rent a flat for your Sim ... you only have to turn your lot into an apartment lot (neither community nor residential).

With the cheat ChangeLotZoning apartmentbase.

After this, all flats in the building will be single apartments - each signed with a rent price, ready to move in for your sims. And you have a 'landlord', janitor (or however this is named in the english game version. whistle). He/she) will welcome interested sims and pass by in the rented apartment flat every day. He/she also cares for the plants outside and do much more round the apartment building.
That´s just like you automatically get a cook when you place a restaurant unit ... or a barkeeper/baristo when you place a coffee/bar unit in a community lot.

Did you ever try playing in/with the apartments that are in the game?
In the german version the neighbourhood with apartments is called 'Belladonna Bucht' - don´t know the english name. I started with playing in some of those apartment buildings before I built my first apartment. That was very helpful, cause I then knew many of the requirements and procedures just from gaming.

So this is confusing to me..how do you do neither..residential or community..when you put an empty lot down it pops up for a name and either residential or community..so it has to be either one of those..I am still not understanding on the neither part of this

And what if I don't want a landlord..what if I want to be the landlord..

I played an Apartment one time..omgosh..the fighting between the neighbors and the flirting with the married couple next door and the kids standing around watching all this...and that lasted a week my time..

I never played one after that..so I just want to make sure who I put in there these things aren't going to happen..or at least I hope so..

I don't like drama in my game..it's the only place I have that is drama free of course that is a bit boring sometimes but it's my security blanket more less..

I started over..and I did something completely different..you will be surprised on this..I will get pictures up as soon as I can..

Ok other than tinypic and photobucket..who else can I use that don't freeze up your computer when you go into it because of all the stupid ads..getting sick of those to places...

opps forgot..I do play the Ultimate Collection thank you Alouette

and thank you Carmen for all your help inlove34
