Well, I decided to bring the Sim State University Student Union lot to TS4. It was not easy, purely due to the space more than the complexity, although the elevation in the landscaping was a pain.
I do realize that there aren’t that many 50×50 lots in the game, but there’s a 50×40 version coming as well to better accomodate this (although even then, it’s going to be a bit sideways, the stairs are an issue). I wanted the first go of it to be as faithful as possible, so I cleared out Magnolia Park and set to work. And boy, was it work, considering I try to get everything from the zig-zag flooring to the exact relative placements of things and sizes of things like floor lamps by the fountain as close as I possibly can. I think the only major change I made was putting a roof on top of the belltower which the TS2 version didn’t have, and of course the change to the cafeteria. Other minor changes include curtains on the bathroom windows, because the whole quad could watch a Sim poop! Why?!
It is, of course, a UBrite Commons lot!
(Please forgive some of the wonkiness in the TS2 comparison picture, the TS2 camera won’t let me fit the lot in a top-down view and I had to resort to Photoshop’s panorama tool.)
