This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
All right… So I’m plunking away, fidgeting with the build mode options into the wee hours of the night, and ALL they can play for commercials is back to back ads for the new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel. Well, surprise surprise. My lot is a reflection of subliminal advertising.

The ship includes the bowsprit, jib-boom, masts, stays and rigging, sails, curved hull, and of course, the “plank.” Sims disembark the ship via stepping off of the plank, and yes, while it may be odd to watch them walk on water, I had wanted to leave the ship without a connecting pier. (The sims also board the ship via the plank and the hull depth is playable.)

- Lot size is 5x2
- Hack-free (checked via Clean Installer)
- Furnished
- Created with Family Fun Stuff installed. However, this pack is NOT required to install this lot. For best results, install with the Sims2Pack Clean Installer, found here:

Custom Content:
- Numenor’s Maxis “Lost & Found” Timber Column, found here at
- Targa’s Designer LadderStairs, found here at
- Custom wallpaper, tiles, and ground cover by V1ND1CARE

*EDIT -- Please DO NOT upload this lot, or any of my other works, to the Exchange and/or any paysites without my consent.

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.

This is truly a piece of art! I cannot believe you made it with the sims. It seems like it doesnt belong ther
#21 Old 8th Jul 2006 at 12:06 PM
How you got the sails to show over a house?
I made a house for my Sims shaped like a water tower and it was on the end looking more to a black cream cake.
