Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Title: Newbie Road 14
Category: Lots & Housing > Residential > Starter Homes

Cost: 19.985
Lot size: 3x2

No expansion packs required.
No custom content.


Description:
Small starter house for 1-2 Sims, fully furnished, with fireplace. Some landscaping/decoration.

1 x double bedroom
2 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining/living room

Basic appliances included: lights, toilet, shower/tub combo (expensive), fridge, kitchen sink, trashcan, phone, burglar alarm, smoke detector, bookshelf. This house also has a stove and a nice big fireplace in the living room. There's enough room to add a carport.

Expandability: Easy - rooms can be added on the backside, turning the current bedroom into a livingroom.


Note:
If you get an "expansion pack data required" error upon installation, use Clean Installer instead of the Maxis one. Apparently this is a known issue (not specific to this download), see this thread describing the problem and this post (daysies) explaining the workaround.

Enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

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

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

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.

Plasticbox, I just love your houses! But I always get the "expansion pack data required" error message. I've tried cleaninstaller and daysies' workaround, but nothing will work. It only happens to me with houses made by you. Do you have any other advice? I would love to have your great houses in my game! Thanks for all your wonderful work, I just wish I could use it.


Julie =)

PS- I only have the sims2 and university, did you make these using the nightlife expansion pack?

That is sad. I don't really have an idea how to help you, or how to avoid this error in the first place ... the thing is, I meanwhile have Nightlife installed so I can't even re-package the house and reupload -> then you could definitely not open it, as you don't have NL. So, I'm afraid I can't do more than point people at the appropriate threads in the help forum and hope they will get it to work ...

If anyone has any ideas or knows how to trick the installer into submission, please post. (Best would be in the help forum, not (only) here, I think)

(Just to make this clear: This upload, and all of the others except the one that says [NL] loud and clear, have been made + packaged *before* I installed the expansion. So they're really, definitely, absolutely, made with the original game. Only the Maxis installer doesn't think so.)

Oh well, maybe it's just my computer or my game because I have a lot of custom content installed. Thank you for responding to me and keep up the great work!

Did you all try with the *latest* version of Clean Installer? Someone wrote on another thread that using the most recent one worked (while an older one didn't) ...

Apart from that, I'm not a big help I'm afraid. I never have this problem. (Except once, with a maxis download ... but it just went away, no idea why)

I don't know what's different now, but Clean Installer is working for me and I can install your houses! I'm so excited that I can have all your great houses in my game, now! Thanks.
