Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After playing the Sims 3 recently, I started feeling a little nostalgic for those 'good old days' and the simple joy of exploring the sims 2 without all that extra stuff. So as a little challenge to myself, I booted up the base game on my old laptop with minimal CC and started fiddling around with the Pleasantview characters. Typically I couldn't help but make-over some maxis houses too! :D

195 Main Street (or Darren and Dirk Dreamer's house) was the first home I decided to tackle. Sure, I've made over this house before with all EPs, but I still thought it would be nice to share this basegame version too for those who don't have them all.

Situated on a 3x3 lot and priced at $52 675, with 2-3 beds and 2 baths the mid sized home is perfect for small families or a couple looking to start one.

Since 195 Main street IS the Dreamer's home in my game, it still retains many of Darren and Dirks favourite things, including a large art room on the 2nd floor. Perhaps Darren will finally realise his dream of becoming a famous artist?

With minimal CC, the home also comes with an outdoor eating area, pool and spa. Perfect for entertaining or relaxing on a hot day after school.
I had a great time creating this home and I hope your sims have just as much fun living it it.
Purchase today and enjoy!

There are no words to describe how beautiful and well exected this lot is. I love this house from top to bottom.

Default Flowers by Road...
I REALLY love the house and all, but i noticed 1 thing... the flowers/borders between the sidewalk and the road. When I first started playing The Sims 2 after being a Sims 1 player, I thought flowers by the road looked cool too, but then I noticed something, my kids couldn't get on the bus/get off the bus, they got stuck, which meant I would have to enter the boolprop TestingCheatsEnabled cheat and delete the bus... (what a pain ) I fixed this issue for the house in my neighborhood, but if I put more than 1 in the neighborhood, I have to repeat the process... so maybe you can edit the house? But besides that, I LOVE the house! Thanks a million!!!
