Missleading Picture[edit source]
The picture used here is possibly the most deceptive picture in the entire promo video. First off, no such location exists in the game. The view is overlooking the bridge, and the bulk of downtown from across the bay. There are no skyscrapers here, and no mansions that in any way match this image. If you do attempt to build this location, You are in for some dissapointment. It is completely impossible to place a hot tub in a penthouse without using cheats. Even if you do learn the relevant cheats necessary to expand and modify a penthouse apartment, you are still going to run into obstacles since all but one (aquarius) of the penthouse shells has a roof above it. The one that does allow you to build on top like this is actually one of the shorter structures. It is my belief that this picture is not even a penthouse at all, but simply a mansion built across the bay on top of one of the taller hills. 126.96.36.199 18:20, December 31, 2010 (UTC)
Does anybody know if penthouses can be robbed? Runtimeerror 08:34, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
- Pretty likely. After all, it's just a different type of house, right? Nikel Talk 13:33, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
- I know this is kinda late, but yes, penthouses can be robbed. I have seen numerous videos in which a penthouse was robbed, but I am yet to experience this for myself as I don't own LN. ~ Waikikamukow (Anyone wanna chat?) 23:57, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
"Building Penthouses" section is incomplete.[edit source]
I have not heard of trying that method to build an apartment-like residence, but I have downloaded a few apartment-like dwellings from MTS and one of them operated like a room-and-board situation, where your sim could use objects in the kitchen, yard, living room, and other communal areas, but couldn't only build/buy (without the use of cheats) in their bedroom. And they were only charged when moving in for the cost of items in their bedroom. I'm not sure how to do this (probably involves a bunch of buydebug objects), but I'm going to try to find a tutorial (on a third party site I think is safe) and either post it here because I'm not familiar with wiki syntax, or edit it into the page itself.
I just want the article to help people more ^_^
EDIT: K I added more info but the part about using public/hidden room markers is still incomplete (I don't know for sure how they function so I'm not comfortable saying I do), and I don't think the wiki page itself mentions callboxes but oh well I don't know enough to know whether they're needed for sure >_<
Dead links[edit source]
Links to sims3nieuws are coming up dead. Time to look for archived versions, if anyone has time to do it. Dharden (talk) 12:43, April 19, 2016 (UTC)
