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.

Just as I suspected. This lot does in fact crash games that do not have expansion packs above university. Interestingly enough it installed with the installer that comes with the game. But when I went to select it I noticed the screenshot of the house was not the same as the others (the sky showed) and it crashed my game when I selected it. Now my question is how do I remove this lot so someone unsuspecting doesn't click on it and crash my game while they are playing. I cannot remove it in the game because it crashes when selected.

The house wont crash your game because you have all the expansion packs. I only have the base game and university. I cannot use it in my game because you have expansion packs past University. There is a post all about the issue of downloading houses that come from games with night life and beyond and trying to put them into games that are only the base game or university.

Yes I found the house before Open for bussies come out.
But If houses need some EP and you don't have it, will it not be possible to install it.

It will install if you install it with sims2pack clean installer. I may have installed it with that I thought I installed it with the installer that comes from the game. But the point is, people without nightlife and open for buisness cannot download this from you because you have them. Did you find this house when you had Nightlife? because the preview of the house before you go to click on it to place it somewhere has a different terrain view of it, this terrain comes with nightlife. The only views a house that is for the base game will have either desert or grassy since those are the only two that the base game and university have.

lol im not gonna go out and buy nightlife with money i dont have. this is why i wish this website would check the houses so things like this dont happen. Most people fail to specify which games they have and if the house needs them and it gets very irritating downloading houses that Im not going to be able to use and will crash my game. Unfortunatly the people running this website don't check those things they just check to see if the house meets their criteria not if it has been placed in the correct categories.

lol yes it does need eps past university. The only EP i have is University and the house does not work in my game. Therefore it does need those EPs.

It needs them because YOU have them. It doesnt matter which game this house came from it matters that you had the other EPs installed when you extracted it and uploaded it.

This is not true. When the nightlife EP came out Maxis made it so that people without Nightlife could not use houses that came from games with Nightlife installed on them even if the house has NO nightlife parts in it, it still cannot be used. I am going to find the topic that talks about this issue and post it because for some reason I cannot get through to you that it does need these EPs to work.

here we go a link to a huge discussion about this subject. Hopefully you will understand what I have been trying to say to you if you read what the people have said on here.
