[LDD MOC] Suburban Doppelhaus

5 posts in this topic

I don't know about you, but I just adore playing Sim City 4. After a while of play, an idea struck me as to create a MOC in LDD based on a building in Sim City 4. Wanting to keep things simple, I chose a low residential zone of my city and randomly picked a house. I landed on this cute and small design:


A very small Doppelhaus (Says so in the game's files), or for those not wanting to Google it, it's also known as a semi-detached house

After a couple hours of experimenting, I think I finally got the design down right, or at least close enough for me to say "That looks alright".



A closer shot of the Doppelhaus.



One of the Doppelhaus' Chimneys.


Father going to work at a low density commercial zone on the other side of town to earn his Simoleons to pay for my city's 25.3% Tax Rate.


Mother currently working in the garden growing cabbages, carrots, and either tomatoes or really large and probably mutated grapes. Seeing that The Sims live in a world where plants can eat other sims and fruit that can bring back the dead, giant mutated grapes don't seem abnormal.


Kids playing with wooden swords out front.


A view of the simple patio furniture. I experimented with different blocks to see what type of result I could get.


Trash collection for waste, recyclables, and vegitation, as well as a (Poorly) done mailbox.


I am hoping to do more of these. I may move onto another low density residential building or probably move onto low to medium density commercial or industrial building. Sorry to say, but I think high density buildings are a bit out of my league at the moment :blush:

For anyone who wants it, the download for the Sim City 4 Dopplehaus is below.

it looks very to the game version, well done. Would be worth to build that in bricks - but dark red is expensive.

I had to laught because of the german "Doppelhaus". I did not know that tis is also used in british or US english. I still know there are some words like Kindergarten or Rucksack. A Doppelhaus is a very famous housing style for the middle class. Then you typical live in a "Doppelhaushälfte", the half of a "doubblehouse". So if you take the half something that is doubble, it is still a whole house ;) Strange german!

Well done! It looks very much like your source material :thumbup:

The chimneys and patio furniture are my favorite parts :classic:

im new to EB and the lego community as a whole, but i am a SC4 community veteran. i have thought of crossing a couple of buildings over to lego as well. i was going to try the paris themed BAT's as modulars in the future

well done indeed.

Doppelhaus in German is almost the same as "Semidetached" in Britain... and "Duplex" in the USA... default_blink.gif
