Here's another Downtown house that EAxis gave us - it has potential, but the design just didn't sit right with me. I was hoping to keep it under $20K... *sigh* that didn't happen - but it's still pretty cheap at under $23K! I hope I've improved on the design - what do you think?

Where there was just 1 bedroom, now there are 2. The bathroom now has a tub/shower combo - so doggies can be bathed properly. And the "flow" is easier for bringing groceries in from the car to the kitchen now. Plus, I added a new basement for... whatever!

Please scroll through ALL the pictures to see everything this house has to offer. This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. There's a smoke alarm under the range hood in the kitchen, the phone is in the hallway, and there is NO burglar alarm. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, garbage can, stove, and fridge. Everything for a Sim's basic needs is included; and there is a lot of space on the lot to build out if needed. This lot is UNdecorated - please personalize it to your sims whims.

NOTE: The ceiling fan has a light (the invisible/tiny light by sensei2003, included) To turn the lights on/off - select another light and choose "Turn all lights on/off"

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Backless Tub/Shower by HL @ MTS2
Yellow Tile Backsplash by Kalynn @ MTS2
Lifestyle Build Bundle - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. I used wallpapers from this set.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): $22,708

- DeckStairs by Numenor @ MTS2

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.
