Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Goro-Nadaka is the ideal retirement home for the Japanese warrior ready to put down his katana, and pick up the brush.

It rises above fortified walls, and offers a cozy but gorgeous single floor with one bedroom, a kitchen, and a large hall for you to furnish as you please. The two guards' quarters by the front gate have been retrofitted as modern bathrooms, and the basement hides a gorgeous pool with a central garden.

Goro-Nadaka is part 1 of my Shozen series.

Goro-Nadaka was tested with a sim, who seems to be able to get everywhere. Please let me know of any issues.

I have a section of LeTour with many of your houses likes these. For as big as this lot is, there isn't a ton of room but I have one couple living in it and it is great for parties.

Bippy, and everyone: If you could post pics of how you're using my lots, or how you've customized them, that would make my day!

This Pagoda is absolutely perfect. I used it for the set of my 30 Seconds to Mars music videos of 'From Yesterday' I just changed the color a bit, but thank you so much for making it. If you want to see the video you can find it here

Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.

I like this and many of your other lots based on their creativity, but this is not at all a pagoda.

It's not letting me use it. I downloaded it and it said it was successfully installed, but I don't see it in the game. Please help!

Come to me, clouds. May you rise as an evil storm, born to rip them open. Let the cover of night bear witness. Destroy those who resist so they shall harm me not. Let the blood of many cleanse me, preserving beauty eternal, I pray you.

I really liked the look of this lot and the pagoda look is impressive. Unfortunately it's unplayable in game due to the roof not keeping out the rain. There are giant holes in the ceiling and all my Sims do is stop to whine about the rain getting into their house.
