I thought I'd share some screenies of the lot I'm using for the Curious brothers' (and, presumably, Loki's before he became a vampire) place of employment. For lack of a better name, I called it Simatech Research Laboratory (I know that's lame, lol)
The building was done by Uma Design on The Sims Resource. It's a "shell" building with no decorations, but it is absolutely gorgeous and can be found here:
For some reason, I wasn't able to change it to be a residential lot. It had been my intention to change it to a residential lot and then create a family of sims... including Curious clones... to inhabit it and get my screenshots that way. However, when I used the changelotzoning residential cheat, it didn't work. (shrugs) So, I kept it a community lot and had one of the real Curious brothers buy it. Works like a charm, even if I do have the random Townie barging in on a scene and I have to get all moveobjects on their ass. (grumbles)
I'm sure someone with more time and imagination could do this lot much more justice than I did, but I'm pretty proud of my efforts all the same (grins.)
This is the main biological research area. I've already taken a few screenshots here...
This is part of the Medical Research area, complete with womrats.
More of the Medical Research area...
The employee lounge:
Botanical Research (snicker)
Aren't the baby cowplants adorable?? Awwww...
And, of course, the "top secret" area... hee hee hee.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun decorating this lot! There's still a ton of room in the building, but I'm afraid if I decorate much more it'll slow the lot down (and there's nothing I hate worse than a slow lot, lol)
