Pleasantview meets the Simstones - Broke Household

Pleasantview meets the Simstones!

Inspired by the Simstones set by the Mod Squad, I've decided to restart Pleasantview and bring all the Maxis characters back to the stone age. With the exceptions listed below,all items used are either from Maxis or the Mod Squad.

The first family dwelling I've created is the Broke family. Not having much money, they cannot afford a full-size stone dwelling. They still rely heavily on wood products and for safety reasons, all except for the man of the house sleep above ground level.


***** NOTE ON CUSTOM CONTENT **************************

I am assuming that if you are enjoying the Simstones as much as I am, you have already downloaded the files for the Simstones custom content from this thread:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=172481
To help save bandwidth, I've removed the Simstones custom content from the packaged lot, but you will need to have the Simstones custom content installed in order for the lot to display properly. I have left in the non-Simstones custom content and have detailed those files below.

*****************************************************

I've used Qwinsepiasquared's dirt road replacement for my neighborhood. In the lot, I've used his/her dirt road replacement to cover the street and using moveobjects on I've removed the sidewalk. Testing the lot, it appears that when you import the lot, the street will not be covered and the sidewalk is back.

In the stone age, sims foraged for their food. It only makes sense to include Echo's harvestable crops for the sims to scavenge some food when the hunt for dino meat doesn't go well. (Honestly, I LOVE Echo's stuff and use it in every one of my lots.)

Also used Echo's "Sandy Beach sandpile" - kids always play in dirt/sand!

I used Targa's "construction ladder" instead of stairs. I thought it had a more "primitive" look to it.

***************************************************

Per the creator's wishes, I have removed these files from the packaged lot, but you will need to download these in order for the lot to show correctly"

I've used some of Boblishman's other (non-Simstone) objects:
Tree table http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=98279
Tree stump seat http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=97826
Roman style stone garden seat http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=97633


Of course, the Brokes live on the "wrong side of town" - right next to the boulder quarry.

This looks awesome and thanks for encouraging me to download all the Simstone stuff, but I have no EPs and this seriously crashed my game. I had to go searching for through my files to delete it. Maybe it need an EP?
