Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello!

This medieval-inspired (I make no claims of historical accuracy) cobblestone street winds through rowhouses. It is perfect for your medieval, fantasy, or magical sims, or for a nice European street scene.

This is a 4x4 community lot. It requires no EPs, and has no custom content. The filesize is 3,101 KB.

Many of the buildings are furnished. They include a clothing store, a grocery, a bar, a cafe, a bookstore, and a private home. I left many rooms unfurnished, as I figured people would want to fill them with custom content.

I recommend the following custom content sets for your Sims' medieval shopping pleasure:

Lethe

Occult Shop
Medieval Kitchen (for your cafe)
Witch's Parlor
Wizard's Study

Brasstex

Medieval Fairgrounds - There are bolts of fabrics and old-fashioned grocery carts

Retail Sims

Pre-OFB Sets
Butcher
Baker
Candle Shop
Medieval/RPG Shop
Crystal Shop
OFB Sets
Hat Shop
Pagan Shop
Herb Shop
Fabric Shop
Gothic Vampire Shop

Pottery Stand: Look under "Medieval Madness"

To get the salesgirl to wear an old-fashioned dress, I used SimPE's "Sim Surgery" option.

Enjoy!

Wonderful work! I live in Germany and it really reminds me of old parts of cities such as duesseldorf or or my hometown wuelfrath. Thank you so much! Is there more to come?

Default Aigle
It was actually inspired by a stroll through the town of Aigle, in Switzerland, which is -near- Germany and has similar architecture. It actually doesn't look anything like Aigle, but that is where I got the inspiration!

Yes, I will be making more medieval-ish lots, and possibly some Victorian-ish ones. I''d like to add a couple of other streets that could fit together and make a little town.

Glad you like it!

Looks very much like the Diagon Alley that I created for my Sims... I don't have any medieval custom content, though.

Excellent job!

Don't worry; you're just as sane as I am...

Funny, I`m making something similar, that I wanted to look like Warsaw`s Old Town.

I like yours very much Nicole. Mine is like half done since I involved myself in some contests.

Guys have fun with this. I am sure you will!

I'm glad you all like it!

Dinki Pinki, will you be sharing your Warsaw street with us? I am looking for any lots/sets which fit the theme. I don't have any EPs (my computer is old and slow), so I am especially looking for those lots which do not require EPs.

Great job! This is so lovely, it reminds me of the old part of Lyon in France. Beautiful. I also just wanted to write and let you know that your key words need to have commas between them or they just come up as one. Great job though, it has inspired me to create a marketplace in a similar fashion.

This is really wonderful. I've spent hours customizing, adding beauty parlor, pet store, toy store, etc. It's a one-stop shopping bonanza!

I wish the game really supported it properly; I'd like to create 10 families to live there and operate the stores, live in the houses and interact. I'll have EA get on it right away.
