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

- Lot Title: Café de Flore
- Lot Category: Community
- Lot Size: 3X3
- Lot Price: $ --
- Furnished: Yes
- Lot Played/Tested: 1/1 -- days
- Created with these Expansion Packs: University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, & Seasons
- Created with these Stuff Packs: Celebration
*NOTE: Celebration is NOT required to install this lot if you install it with the Sims2Pack Clean Installer, found here: However, you will lose the hurricane table lamps and circular tables.
- Hack-free (checked via Clean Installer)

Based on the historical Café de Flore in Paris, I’ve been fighting the compulsion to construct this lot for some time. More of a modern-day tourist spot with a small park, bookstore and shop, I had wanted to create a place in which my sims could reinvent the world over coffee and croissants in the manner of Sarte and de Beauvoir. More importantly, I had wanted it to be playable which is why I had chosen to limit this district corner to the ground level. The floors and terraces above, however, are readily accessible if you wish to tack on some stairs.

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

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 0

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.

Lovely and realistic, and so inviting! The details are perfect, as always, and the whole building is a pleasure for the eyes. Thank you V1ND1CARE, this is a great gift for the community ... and let's send the damned little pixelated to enjoy this Paris corner. Big kiss and ciao. :D

Wow, great job on capturing the Haussmann architectural style. The roofs in particular are spot on.
Speaking the obvious but you have a great eye for achitectural details.
Thanks for sharing

Absolutely, completely stunning!

When I first saw the thumbnail, I though it was a picture of the cafe you'd modeled it after. I couldn't believe it when I opened the page and saw it was the actual LOT pictured!

Amazing work!
