Welcome to Hogsmeade!

I like to build worlds – whether it’s creating a new SC4 file, building of my own lots or finding that perfect lot by someone else (why recreate the wheel?) to fit my neighborhood’s need.

I love Harry Potter, too, so I decided to build his world. My first offering from this world is a collection of community lots for Hogsmeade. These are 1 part book, 1 part movie, 1 part imagination with a smidgeon of experience. There is a bit of custom content (unavoidable if you want HP buildings) – but I have tried to keep it to a minimum.

All the below lots were made to fit a version of my Hogsmeade .SC4 file, which I uploaded. You can find them here:
Hogsmeade and Hogwarts SC4 files

This post contains the following Lots that are mentioned in the books:

Lot # 4 - Honeydukes, Zonko’s and Gladrags
Lot #5 – Scrivenshafts Puddifoots
Lot # 8 – Dervish and Banges
Lot #9 – The Hog’s Head
Lot #11 – Owl Post Office
Lot # 12 – The Three Broomsticks

Also available on my SimsPage are Hogsmeade Station and the Shrieking Shack. You can find them here:

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.
