I spent hours trying to figure this out. How on Earth do I build a stage?? Was easy in the prequel. Seems impossible in 4. Can't make a proper club or concert hall without a stage, which makes musical instruments very "half-way there", and kinda boring, with no real goal to it.
Making a second floor is too high, attempting to change the height of a platform changes the height of the entire floor, and half-walls can't have their own floor. The closest I can come is to build only a stage by adjusting the height and giving it stairs, but I doubt the "audience" would react properly to it then.
Can Sims 4 Studio somehow make rooms separate from each other, so adjusting the height no longer changes everything on that level? Or something?? This is driving me nuts. I'm a musician. I've played on a stage. It would be lame if I had to play on the floor with everyone else. Stage or gtfo.
Would also like to know how to build a deck the same way, for pools, but that would clip into the ground, so it certainly require some modding, but I'm more than willing to make such a mod.
This sort of thing would make a bar look classy, and could be used to make a fancy dining area (like in Wayne's World), and...well, I need to make some stages! XO
Something like it, yeah. I used that strategy, but it became quite a nightmare dealing with doors. For every new wall you add, it adds a foundation under it, so I had to put stairs on both side of every door, cuz you can't add a door to anything but a wall, and stairs must be on, or connected to a legit floor, so nothing under the foundation, which means to have a door, you must have a foundation-level floor connecting to the stairs. Became something of a mess. I wish there was a way to save a room's height. Then I could make rooms of all heights, and save them, and many cool things could be done.
The delete floors thing accomplished the goal, but left me with stairs everywhere. Also would be impossible to properly add stairs from the lower level to the next floor. I wouldn't be able to add a landing to a dining room in a 2-story house, or an outside deck (for a pool or something) if I had a 2-story house either, unless I had stairs to the raised area, leading the actual stairs to the second story in the house. Would be goofy.
And if I wanted to make only a certain part of the room lower, I couldn't, cuz there's no way to delete only a section of the floor, unless I make that part an enclosed room, delete the floor from that, then delete the walls from the temp room, and add stairs to the lower level. Tedious.
For a game where everything is too easy, it sure is hard to accomplish certain basic things. And why do no sims visit my new lot? It seems like no one will visit a General lot. They just walk by. If I added a bunch of (unnecessary) dining tables and chairs, I could make it a nightclub or a bar, but I already have 2 nightclubs and a bar in Newcrest. Would be overkill to make another. If there were a Get Drunk mod kinda like TS3, this wouldn't be prob.

I have not. Didn't know that was a thing. Movable ceiling?
I dunno, sounds like would produce the same issue of needing stairs, but I could be wrong. One thing I still haven't tried is saving a room made without a foundation and adding it to a house with a foundation. I suspect it would simply add its own foundation to conform to the lot's foundation. I'll tell ya this, my project is mighty complicated. Stairs everywhere. :p
