Welcome to Sunnyside!

This set of basegame mini lots has the sun at the front, so all your houses will be bright and cheerful. No EPs required.

If you are wanting the Community Sunnyside lots, look here.
If you want the desert versions, look here.

I've been using the original mini lots by Andi8104 and MaryLou for a long time, and I love them. However, I always hated having the front of the house in shadow when I went to take pictures, so I decided to try and fix it.

If you have seen plasticbox's 2xN lots, mine are north-facing by his description.

My lots are firmly based on the originals. I have just turned them around, so the sun is at the front, instead of behind the building. Without the work done to shrink the lots in the first place, these could never have been made. (At least not by me - I looked at Andi's instructions for shrinking lots, and couldn't make head or tail of them.)

I am a builder, not a modder, and I have been babied through this entire process by all sorts of helpful (and very patient) people. These include Mootilda, MaryLou, Niol, Plasticbox, Inge, Numenor, and even my husband, who knows nothing about Sims 2 but is a good problem-solver. And of course, Andi8104, in absentia.

The lots have been made for any game configuration, using Numenor's Basegame Starter Pro. All the sizes are included, vertical and horizontal.

Special thanks to Mootilda for her endless patience in explaining how to use SimPE, and to MaryLou for creating custom thumbnails and cleaning up my packages.

The Lot Rotation tutorial is here.

Enjoy building on the sunny side of the street!

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
