I wouldn't even bother. Mind you if sims could get fit from running up and down the stairs they would be useful houses.

Ding-boobies are round. At least mine are Cheesy Nice try though!

I have noticed that some websites love the big shiny 5x5 over-decorated lots that would lag many computers, and tend to feature them a lot.  4+ floors, every square inch of the sloping yard landscaped (using move objects on to get multiple plants in one slot), glitzy floor covering and walls, high poly cc furniture, multiples of every luxury object in the game - including the ones you don't let your sims use, excessive use of decorative objects, etc.

When I go looking for lots I don't want "big, shiny and unplayable".  I want functional and playable.  Much shinier, in my opinion.

I really can't fathom the attraction for these big shiny lots that really aren't shiny at all.

Exactly! I tend to want "starter" lots that are 2x3 or 3x3 - room enough to expand a house, put in a pond/garden/whathaveyou but wow, a 4x4 lot is seriously looking too big to me right now, and a 5x5 is just... i dunno... nouveau riche or somethg. I want playable!

To avoid confusion, this is what that post was referring to (and her response accordingly):
Is it just me - or does this one look a little like a boob?
It's you.

I agree; it doesn't look much like a boob to me. *shrug*

My contribution.  I ran across this yesterday at MTS2.  Ughh!



I wish people would learn how to turn the lights on when they take interior shots.  Or is it that dark?



Need I say more?

That was hideous! I think one if my biggest problems with lots like that is the creators slap them down, bang in the middle of nice green countryside. It probably wouldn't look quite so bad (from the outside anyway) if it was in some space-age neighbourhood with appropriate terrain paint and decorations. Unfortunately the interior has no redeeming features and I can still feel the after-image burned onto my retinas.

I'm trying to figure out the whole 'bed of nails' thing they've got going at the top...as well as the untethered steel columns around the outside.

And...that is a smilie face on the roof, isn't it.

Umm.....

:::::blinks rapidly::::::

Okay, so there are a million things wrong with this build...I'm ....stunned into silence.

I'd like to nominate this lovely lot, made by me.

I uploaded this lot cc object free to the exchange, thinking I was so cool because I packed it with OFB snapdragons,...
but little did I know that my snaps were made by a sim with a low aspiration level, and they gave off motive decreasing vapors...
Download it here  http://thesims2.ea.com/exchange/lot_detail.php?asset_id=458481&asset_type=lot&user_id=2734714 
put some sims you hate in it...

I like that it has the word "comfort" in the title. Exactly what your sims will NOT be getting. Still, it looks nice.

This has no hope of measuring up against some of the other shit in this thread, but it made me laugh.

This is the "Rare Ghost House" from Sapphiresims. Castlevania-inspired, apparently.

Why is it called a ghost house? I'm not seing a ghost. I'm seeing a splattered santa, or something. Maybe it's santa after being run over by the sled a few dozen times....

Like many of the lots available from Parsimonious, this one is beautiful to look at, but completely unplayable. Please note how the interior screenshots are all closeup details of the furnishings, and show nothing in the way of room layout.

http://parsimonious.org/realestate2/data/chrrage_amere/gallery.shtml

And another:

http://parsimonious.org/realestate2/data/scre_t_/gallery.shtml

And yet another:

http://parsimonious.org/realestate2/data/chrconstellation_loft/gallery.shtml

And, yep, you guessed it... another:

http://parsimonious.org/realestate2/home/sbrcosmic_castle.shtml

Seriously, I could nominate probably 75% of their lots, but I will end it here, with THIS LEVIATHAN.

This is titled "Prancing in Pink" , apparently it's for a sim with no furniture who likes to run stairs?

[image snipped]

Actually it's part of a set of 10 called "Chromatic Commarancies " all in different fun colors:
Are they actually 10 different houses, as billed? To me it looks like a mere 4 different houses, with the 10 different colour schemes. Or possibly 9, as there are two in blood red.

The rooms look unbelievably small in the screenshot - 2 x 4 or something like that? You wouldn't even be able to get a double bed in there and expect the sims to be able to use it. That's pretty stupid.

Like many of the lots available from Parsimonious, this one is beautiful to look at, but completely unplayable. Please note how the interior screenshots are all closeup details of the furnishings, and show nothing in the way of room layout.

http://parsimonious.org/realestate2/data/chrrage_amere/gallery.shtml
I'm guessing it's another cheapass way of making Neighbourhood decorations - the castle is supposed to be plonked down for show in the Neighbourhood view, but you're not actually supposed to try to have sims living in it.

I thought you said they were beautiful to look at? Tongue

Who's judging this month's monstrosities, apart from Emma?

More horrors from Mod The Sims 2:

Green Building by Matheus.

I think it's supposed to be a block of flats/apartments rather than a single family home, but it's just so ugly. It looks like it's made out of Lego or Stickle Bricks, but it's not that cool.

Does anyone else get pissed off with houses that are billed as from some historical period, but don't actually resemble houses from that period very much? This "medieval" house, billed as a "genuine slice of Old Europe sitting ready for the true renaissance family" is a fine example of that. It's not a particularly stupidass house - it seems perfectly playable, although the decor is not to my taste. But the windows, the outdoor stairs, the open balcony area halfway up the house, the convenient positioning of the driveway - none of these things are at all period. It takes more than covering the outer walls in stone to make a house medieval.

I must also confess an unrelenting hatred of most "A frame" houses. Take this example, which I can't actually nominate as it was posted on 3rd June. My problems with them are that firstly they look really weird, and secondly there's a whole load of floor area that's inaccessible to the sims and their furniture, unless you use move_objects on.

And one more entry: Moi's Slideur002 by niol. Again, tons of the floor area is inaccessible. The stairs waste even more floor area. And it's perfect for voyeurs.

But I've saved the best 'til last with the main screenshot:

Yes, the roof has fallen off the house, and the flat area that remains has sprouted little rooflets, like crystals. How very weird.
