This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
An old haven for prominent artists and writers, the Greek island of Hydra remains an escape from the modern world. Located in the heart of the Saronic Gulf, Hydra employs no motorized transportation – donkeys only, and has no skyscrapers or modern industrialization to mar its picturesque view. Due to preservation and strict architectural laws, this quaint and beautiful island remains little changed from what one would have viewed two centuries past.

So, gather your world weary sims and send them off to a dusty taverna in the harbor’s square. Order them a plate of olives, fried feta and a glass of retsina. Then, as they sit back beneath enormous canvas awnings, allow the beauty of this seaside port to put their busy minds to ease. Or just watch them gather and philosophize about art and life as only our lovable little sims can do.

- Lot size is 3x3.
- Hack-free (checked via Clean Installer)
- Includes Holiday Party Pack and Family Fun Stuff objects, but these are NOT required in order to install. For best results, install with Clean Installer.

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.

This is beautiful and unique, thanks! for sharing.

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

Azelda -- The error surfaces because I have Family Fun Stuff installed, however, you don't need to have that to install the lot. Use Clean Installer and you shouldn't have a problem.

Absolutely beautiful. Wish I was a Sim so I could enjoy it personally...

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.
