The inclusion of the foundation tool in The Sims 2 allows for the creation of more realistic houses, built off the ground. However, houses built on foundations do not easily accommodate the addition of attached garages. Fortunately, there is a relatively simple work-around solution to this problem.
This tutorial demonstrates a building technique that involves disabling one of the usual building mechanics in The Sims 2 through the use of a cheat. It is highly encouraged that you do not turn off building mechanics unless necessary, and that you re-enable them as soon as it is practical to do so.
For this tutorial, we are using a house that was constructed without a garage or driveway. This could be, for example, if a house was built prior to the installation of The Sims 2: Nightlife or if a garage was simply forgotten during construction.
Note that although this tutorial aims to demonstrate how to build attached garages, the basic principles explained here can be applied to other construction projects, such as building entire rooms of a house on a different level than the rest of the house. These additional projects may vary in difficulty and/or feasibility.
- Step 1 - Choose your house
- Step 2 - Prepare the site
- Step 3 - Build the walls of the garage
- Step 4 - Connect the walls
Re-activate the Wall Tool and connect the garage walls to the side of the house. Note that the game now should allow you to make the connection, though it will force the walls of the house to spike up.
- Step 5 - Level the walls
- Step 6 - Complete the walls
- Step 7 - Create a space for the garage door
- Step 8 - Level the upper walls
Open the cheat prompt by holding down CTRL + SHIFT and tapping C. Enter the following code into the prompt: boolProp constrainFloorElevation true; this will re-engage the normal wall placement rules.
- Step 9 - Paint
- Step 10 - Complete the garage
