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 65 [NL] - Under 15.000
Category: Lots & Housing > Residential > Starter Homes

Cost: 14.979
Lot size: 2x3

Nightlife expansion required.
No custom content.


Description:
Starter house for 2-3 sims, furnished for 1-2, some landscaping/decoration. Very easy to expand with a garage or top floor or both (see Newbie Road 65a and 65b).

1 x double bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining/living room
1 x spare room (unfurnished)

Basic appliances included: lights, toilet, bathtub, fridge, kitchen sink, phone, burglar alarm, bookshelf. This house also has a TV. No smoke detector, no trash can.

Expandability: Garage or other rooms can be added on to the left, and/or a top floor.


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.

I just love all your starter homes! I think I have them all. They are easy to decorate as all the rooms are nice and spacious. Maxis starter homes often don't have room for a double bed and a dresser in the bedroom! And yours are often easy to expand once the family starts growing some. And because it seems all my houses all look the same if I make them, you help add a visual variety to my neighborhood! Thank you! Keep up the FANTASTIC work!

The roof? That's just two parts of roof, one wider than the other ... no special tricks involved. I'm not really sure what you mean with "line up like that" though -> ?

I absolutely love all your starter homes, they're perfect for filling up my empty neighbourhoods from all the expansions. Thank you so much!

Hmm. Angle was strange. What I dont get is why the walls didnt come down over the porch with the roof... its just the roof tiles... I didnt think that was possible...

Ah, ok. You can delete those walls with the wall tool (the walls over the porch, I mean) -- does this answer your question?
