How to Create a Pretty Driveway Arch in Sims 2
Okay now here is something very creative. It lets you make an arch for your car driveway. You can design it the way you want. Just follow the steps.
Step1: Add a driveway.
Step2: Create a garage (it's actually a room) for your car.
Step3: Now, choose the hand tool and delete the driveway.
Step4: Replace the driveway with tiles of your choice, whether it's regular floor tile, stone, or brick.
Step5: Create a 5 x 7 rectangle of foundation in the middle of your driveway or whichever dimension is suitable to your driveway.
Step6: Use the wall room tool to create a "room" on top of the foundation. You can also use the regular wall tool and complete all four sides.
Step7: Place any of your favorite flooring on the top of this room.
Step8: Insert a roof at the very top.
Step9: Remove the walls between the foundation and roof.
Step10:Now delete the roof so all you have left is the foundation and the roof tiles.
Step11: Now delete the foundation.
Step12: Add a flowerbed border found in the fences catalogue on the top of the tile. You can add a simple border, across, up & down, or do a combination. This is going to be your overhead. It's up to you to delete the tiles.
Step13: Delete some tiles to leave a 5 x 5 floor tile. Area.
Step14: Insert the cheat boolprop constrainFloorElevation false for the floor cheat.
NOW A COMPLICATED PART, DO THIS PROPERLY OR YOUR ARCH WILL LOOK UNEVEN.
Step15: Raise the terrain by using specific tiles:
a)Do 2 clicks on the top left hand corner tile.
b)Drag the level terrain tool from that raised corner diagonally over to the bottom right hand corner to cover the 5X5 tiles.
c)Raise the next corner by 2 clicks.
d)Level off the middle 3 tiles off.
e)Raise the next corner by one click.
f)Level off the middle column to give your terrain a nice round shape.
Step16: Turn the cheat off by typing in boolprop constrainFloorElevation true.
Step17: Remove the floor tiles and level off your terrain to give you a flat surface. The arch you have made into a round shape wont be flat again because you have turned off the cheat.
Step18: Now make a 5X7 foundation again like you did before on the same area.
Step19: Delete the middle part off so that all you have is two long strips of foundation on the sides.
Step20: Add columns on the foundation to show support. (Use decorative columns)
Step21: Use the moveobjects on cheat and add bamboo or flowerbeds and flowers on the foundation. Or to give it a cool effect, you decorate the foundation with the 'Qube' coffee table in the tables catalogue.The 'Qube' is only available if you have the sims 2 nightlife.
Your arch is now ready !
TIP: You can use the boolprop constrainFloorElevation false cheat even to add an arch to the front door of your house, windows and much more. You can also use this cheat to add pretty roofs!
I hope I helped! Enjoy...
