Misty Swamp Shack

This lot was inspired by Gramp´s Hut from The Witcher RPG. It is a shack in the middle of a swamp. Mists are rising from the water and it is said that if you are brave enough to wander there during a night you can catch a deathfish there.

This house was designed for only one sim. It features one room that serves as a bedroom, kitchen and living room, and a separate bathroom. It is quite shabby and can be considered medieval, because there are no modern devices there (except fire alarm). There´s a small garden outside the house, some collectable bugs and plenty of space for fishing.

For the mist to appear you have to light two fireplaces in the small building where a bathroom is located. (The real chimney tops are actually hidden in the water.) If you do not intend to move the lot afterwards, you can delete the fireplaces with "moveobjects on" to prevent fires. Otherwise keep the fireplaces where they are or the mist would disappear for good, if you moved the lot elsewhere. To prevent fires in that case you can get the No More Fire mod by Winterhart (here at MTS).
(In case you wondered why the chimney tops producing the smoke are only hidden and not burried in the ground, that´s because after moving the lot they would resurface, I have tried that.)

Base game compatible. Build with patch 2.3.33. Requires Riverview for some decorative objects.
