Fountain View Apts: Lot 63. California style orange stucco apartment building with three one bedroom units. First floor has 2 units, one with 2 bathrooms, and one smaller unit with just one bathroom. Second floor features an extra large one bedroom/ 2 bath, with balcony.
This building is equipped with the Sim Logical Apartment system hacks, which makes the residents of each apartment stop trying to use the objects in the other Sims' units. The system consists of necessary Apartment tokens, which must be placed in each room & assigned an apt #, and a master controller, which you use to set the restrictions on the apts, and also toggles your apt tokens to visible/invisible. The controller is the hawthorn bush in the pic left. Then you choose from among the different objects hacked to work with the system: things like plumbing & appliances & fun objects like TVs & computers are 'attractive' to Sims, the apartment hacked versions of these items will only attract & be available to the Sims you have assigned to the apt token that is in the same room. The cat in Apt 3 is also assigned to the room token of his apt so he can get in the door.
