This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A new project called mexican Flair is finish! I never took so long for creating a house in ts ever. i worked about a week and noticed that my computer is pensioner now :D
i decided that this lot should be a residential area, because i thought a community one would be weird. It's perfect for big familys or a apartment sharing community, because it's really expensive I hope you enjoy this small village!

you will need World Adventures and the new Ambitions EP to get the result as in the pictures.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is a wonderful village, I like the colors. I'd like to know where you got the aged walls from? Like the dusty edges.

Shady,you're not only a master of sims but also building! This lot is beautiful and so evocative of the warm and happy feeling I associate with Mexican culture. I'm Mexican and I know some have complained it's not realistic, but to me it captures the spirit! My sims will be happy here enjoyig all the beautifully detailed homes and public spaces! Thank you.

I Really really loved this!
I have to say, as my fellow mexsicans did, that this isnt what you usually see in Mexico these days, but it captures our culture in a great way.
Who cares if we dont use all those colors,the traditional Mexican culture is colorful! Plus, I think that if she had used white, yellows and oranges, it would have looked so mexican.
I really like what you did, the attention to details is amazing, like the old walls, the clothes...

I have not been lucky enough to visit Mexico yet but the colours remind me of Frida Kahlo's house. I've only seen images and the movie about this amazing artist but your colours capture, for me, the essence of her style. I love this building and it is a wonderful interpretation of a beautiful culture. Even if I'm historically incorrect it gives me a feeling of my favourite artist - so thank you Shady.

Thanks Bunches!

put an advetisement (paint or posters) of some beer like "cerveza corona" in every corner and that will be a 100% mexican town no mather the colors or even the buildings. XD

Nice try but i have to tell you those kind of houses were only around here in the revolutionist times (100 years ago) now they r common houses

This is beautiful. Whether it is authentic or not...eh, who cares. We make and download lots everyday that have labels on them.. Fisherman's Cottage, Japanese house, etc. It just gives us all an idea what we are going to find when we open the file. Don't take those comments to heart. This is wonderful work. I love the colors and detail.

I remember playing that game! They actually put polar bears in México and docks, piers and whatnot in Paris on the Seine, so you're at the very least much more accurate than your model Seriously though, beautiful upload, thanks for sharing!
#41 Old 14th Sep 2010 at 8:01 AM
These houses are lovely, and please don't listen to others. I don't get why they're so offended by it. If someone was to make a "Canadian house" (whatever that is) and it wasn't entirely accurate, I wouldn't be mad over it. Especially not if it's a beautiful lot like this one! As long as it has some correct elements (which your lot has-according to some Mexican people I speak to), it's a nice and valid lot. And one last point, it's a lot for *Sims*, it doesn't need to be exactly the same as real life.

Thumbs up! You did a nice job. I always enjoy your creations.

This will be a rare time were I will post something (not that I am special I am more reserved and shy).

-Shady- I enjoy your creations and use them often in my game. As for being inspired, moved, and/or whatever it is that helped you make this lot, well I think you nailed it! I have gone to Mexico every summer for over 15 years and I have been to may place there. The capital City to the most remote mountain village. My father (God rest his soul) was born in a village that is very much like this lot! It is not a colorful but you captured the idea and I thank you for sharing it.

@RogeerBlood - It is for a GAME not for REAL life! Get over yourself and I know you can read and/or write in English as you responded to a second post! Los ranchos de Mexio son el corazon del pais!

The wall with the dusty edges is the aged brick from WA I think.

Beautiful Work Shady -- I've tried making a lot like this for ages and never could get it right. No I finally have a place for Frida Kahlo-Sim!

I don't normally post comments, but I have to say this lot has brought me to have to say something. When I saw this lot, all I could say was "WOW!", just wow...the details, the colors were so gorgeous!

I was very impressed, but then again I love all the stuff you upload. I trust your work and see how much you pay attention to details. I can't thank you enough for sharing with us.

Congrats on being featured! You definitely deserved it.
