VPN’s Garage – The Sims 2 Roleplay, Storywriting Forum and More! [Site Updates]

Did you know that The Sims 2 can be more than just a life-simulation game?

At VPN’s Garage, you can find a unique roleplay universe, Alterra, an open and expansive universe that we have created on The Sims 2,
turning the Maxis’ popular game into a real roleplay experience.

But our community isn’t only made by “Alterran” roleplay! We also have unique “Alterran” creations that contribute to make the atmosphere even more fascinating.

Every creation that you will find at VPN’s Garage is made to give a more unique touch to Alterra, compared to the Maxis SimNation.
So here you will find only Alterran creations, made in our custom universe, and you won’t find real-life creations (which are made for people who want to turn The Sims 2 into another representation of planet Earth, and it’s not what we do here).

Basically, our roleplay, our stories and our creations are set in Alterra,
a unique and fascinating planet with a lot of things that you can discover with us, because there are so many things that makes Alterra unique in its kind:
its races, religions, politics, customs, celebrities, music, products, and many other things!

So, are you surprised to see how many things you can do with The Sims 2? Click on the picture below to reach our site.
Registration, downloading and posting are 100% free, because we work for fun. Not for money.

The Sims 2 Apartment Life

  2. The Sims 2 Apartment Life
  3. Stupid: No Cars for Renters

Well I tried making my own lot with a garage copying EA’s lot that came with the game, this is what I got:

“”There is an invalid apartment on this lot. To fix it you can revert to lotzoning back to residential and then correct the architecture of your apartments.”

So I’m really frustrated with this pack right now.

What the. that is such a huge deal.

Judging from comet 65cali’s post, if he worded his comment correctly, then I think it means that you can only have a car if it is in a garage and the garage is attached to your sims apartment, ie it is part of the apartment on the ground level, I dont have AL yet, so I’m not sure, but if that’s true it means a couple of things, firstly anyone above the ground floor is not able to own a car, and you can’t have foundations as it’s impossible to connect the garage to the house if there are foundations. if that is then indeed the fact then that really is not good, it’s down right rotten, and I for one would be very dissapointed, and would agree with comet 65 cali 100%, I mean how can you not have the ability to own a car, to deny a sim the right to own a luxorious automobile is just the bottom of the barrel, the sims might as well go back to the stone age, I mean walking to lots, what is that ?, they might as well turn the tv’s black and white, might as well turn the phones into telegraph devices.

Surely Maxis could figure out a way to make the garage thing work, sure in real life there isn’t space for all the residents in an apartment to park their cars, but at least some residents have assigned parking spaces and you can arrange something. I think there should be something like the mine door from university, there should be somthing that you can attach to the driveway or extention which allows you to reserves the parking space no matter where your sim lives, can you imagine your sim is a business tycoon, living in a classy penthouse suite, he want to take someone out on a date with his snazy Hunka and then he realizes he doesn’t have one because he cant park it anywhere, it defeats the purpose and in my opnion makes AL a whole lot less attractive, I really hope this isn’t the case or if it is I hope it’s somehing that will be solved with a patch.

Actually you can have a garage on the bottom floor and the apartment on top of it. Kind of like a town house. So you live in an apartment, say three floors, the first floor is the garage, the next floor is the house.

However, You can only have a car on an extension, I tried making an apartment with a garage right at the front and the game froze, so you can’t use the normal cheats to fool the system. One thing that pissed me off is you cannot have the apartment door on a higher level than the apartment door. So your front door is only going to have a small entryway with stairs going to the first floor

You could have a car on a dorm lot. Why not in Apartment Life I don’t know. You should be able to rent an apartment and a driveway. select a driveway to rent, or live without one just like in real renting. Heck I even built an apartment with cars already there I was just going to change owner the things. and Poof the cars dissappeared!

Walkthrough of the Landgraab Self Storage Garage Doors Mod!

Ravasheen has done it again and created something to make our Simming lives easier. Have you ever wished the debug base game garage door or the City Living decorative garage door was actually a functional door? Have you ever wanted to use them for storage? Well you’re in luck because Ravasheen has done both!

Introducing the Landgraab Self Storage Garage Doors! Ravasheen’s taken the garage door from the base game and City Living and turned them into functional objects, complete with their own custom animation and sound effects! They can also store items for you.

Getting Started

Of course, you will have to install them, first. You can get them from Ravasheen’s website. The current version is in early access for patrons only but will be released to the public on April 9th, 2022. If you need help with installing mods, check out our article Getting Started With Mods and CC.

Once it’s installed correctly, all you have to do is load up the game and go into Build/Buy. The garage doors will be located under the Doors category. You can also search “rvsn” in the search bar to bring up all of Ravasheen’s content you have installed in your game.

Please note that only the 7 solid colour swatches are base game compatible. The other swatches require City Living. If you don’t own City Living, you will only see the solid-colour version of the doors.

Catalogue and Swatch Overview

The doors show up in the catalogue as two separate entries; one is base game compatible. The other requires City Living. You can safely install the mod if you only own the base game. You just won’t see the City Living version in your catalogue.

Here are both door varieties in all swatches. There are 7 base game swatches in solid colours and 20 City Living swatches with various designs.

How to use the Garage Doors

How to create a garage in sims 2 nightlife
Like all of Ravasheen’s creations, the garage doors are very easy to use. Simply place a garage door along a wall the same way you would with any other door in the game and have a Sim walk through it! The door will automatically open with its own sound effect when Sims walk through it and close a few seconds after a Sim has passed through it. The doors can also be locked just like all the other doors in the game and you can set them as the front door if you like.

But the garage doors are more than just doors. They are also storage units! What is the point of storage doors that can’t store anything, right? Using the doors for storage is as easy as using any other storage chest in the game. Just click on the door to open up its inventory and drag anything you like from your own inventory into the door’s inventory. It’s a very convenient way to use the doors as a storage unit without actually taking up any space. Oh, and the best part? The doors do not have a shared inventory so you can organise your stuff by storing them in separate doors.

How to create a garage in sims 2 nightlife
And in spite of the funny catalogue description, you can in fact live in a storage unit with these doors. Just build a storage container with everything your Sim needs to survive and use the garage door as the front door! You can’t stop us from living our lives, Landgraab Corporation!

Our Thoughts

I really love these garage doors. I’m always painstakingly scrolling through the debug menu to find those base game garage doors to create realistic garages for my builds just for the sake of decoration. I love that these doors have been made functional because it opens up more uses for them. I’m also a fan of more storage because I have a habit of keeping every single little thing my Sim accumulates in their inventory but I hate having it all lying around or cluttering up my inventory.

I asked SimGuruDaniel if it was possible to have different foundation heights on one lot. He said “Yes in theory but not easily.”

That gives me hope for multiple foundation heights in the future. Is this something other people would want?

I would love to be able to have the house on a foundation (so I could have porches) and the garage on the ground, with a few stairs up into the home. Or the house on a foundation and a shed or pool house on the ground.

I would also love to be able to have different structures on the same level have different wall heights. A house with a tall wall height does not need a shed with a tall wall height. You would not be able to connect them, but that would be OK.

This would really add so much to building. I wish they add it. @Piperbird

Edit: Also wish they add half width (not length) walls. Or quarter tile walls.

Some of that can be accomplished in the game already. It takes some manipulation, but it can be done:

As i understand, it is difficult as the system used to make a room as one thing.

Then the room at 2nd photo, if implement it, would be 2 rooms

Very nice! Thats looks good. Only thing we can’t add doors or windows to the lower levels.

I really want different shaped stairs.

I would also like to be able to adjust foundation size by room, to be able to have different height rooms on one lot. An example would be having a ground floor garage and steps leading up to the main house, especially if the kitchen connects to the garage.

I may have explained that badly. 🙁

Another similar tool I’d like to get back is foundation or stage objects that can be placed block-by-block, like in The Sims 2. They did not adjust the wall height or anything but some objects could not be placed on them. You could also use these as a landing for stairs. Example:

We can do things a bit like this in The Sims 4 but build mode can be very restrictive (you couldn’t have a door at ground level because it would be considered a foundation, not a room, for example). I really hope they add more tools soon, and add extra helpful details like being able to delete single floor tiles.
