This isn’t really such a big torture for your Sims as it is for you to see them climbing the stairs in order to use everyday objects.
Do your Sims have neighbor(s) who wronged them? Invite them for a dinner party in the basement!
This one is just scary from top to bottom that no Sims would ever want to be near this lot..-
Another silly lot with no actual plot or storyline other than forcing your Sims to look at the objects around them that could help them live a normal life while being restricted by nothing else but a wooden fence.
