OTHER INFORMATION
THANK YOU:
Thank you to the following artists for helping to bring a little "magic" to the Sim World: Marvine and XxHalfBloodPrincexX!

MY TEXTURES:
All stephanie b. walls, floors and ground covers included in houses downloaded from MTS2 can be used in lot creations on any free or pay site as long as I receive credit for the textures. Please do not post my textures (walls, floors or groundcovers) or lots on other sites without my permission or reupload them as your own by giving them color face-lifts without giving me credit for the original design. Thank you!

NOT A CARBON COPY:
These lots are creations from my imagination based mainly on excerpts from the books and on-line information. I am basing very little on the movie versions of each place, so don't expect exact replica's of movie versions of the various places in the Magic and Muggle World.

MY VISION FOR HARRY POTTER NEIGHBORHOOD:
My vision for this neighborhood is that the students do not "live" in Hogwarts. I see the school as home to only a few teachers (Dumbledore, McGonagall, Trelawney). Everyone else is spread out in either their family homes or in the Summer Houses.

MY SOURCE:
I used the floorplans found on the Harry Potter Lexicon site as inspiration. For extensive Potter INFORMATION, checkout the HP Lexicon here: www.hp-lexicon.org

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.

Vampire of Death,

Thanks for the compliments and response. I don't know if you can actually help with the lot creations though! Thanks for the offer. It's a little different than object creations. With lot designs, I sit and stare at a blank lot full of green grass and then I just start building. The ideas develop as I build. Hopefully, they result in collections EVERYONE can enjoy! Be sure to collect the entire set! Take care!

Hi DD! I just found pumpkins at Tarox's site to go with this. I'm psyched because I wanted pumpkins from a free site that are not jack o' lanterns and in different sizes. I'm reorganizing my Harry Potter and Victorian London neighborhoods while I wait to hear from the moderators on the Victorian upload. So, I'm downloading little odds and ends and all of Dincer's Victorian stuff!

I'm sorry, I might be blind, but I can't find the links to the pages you're talking about. Can you post a link here please (unicorns etc)? Thanks!

Hi Glitchie!

While the link is there, you are not blind. Back in the day, I provided links that were the users name. But, I modified the links so they would be easier to find in the post now. But, I shall post them below as well for your convenience.

The Unicorn Mesh and 2 Dragons
* CLICK HERE for the Unicorn Mesh and the 2 Dragons by Suiryuue
If you open a FREE ACCOUNT at The Sims Resource (or already have a FREE account), log in and click on the following link to obtain Suri's Unicorn Mesh on Page 2. The Dragons can be found on Page 1. All 3 Meshes are ALWAYS FREE downloads once you log in.

* CLICK HERE for the Spiders by !1Horror1!

I haven't much time to spend on-line at the moment, but there are more pumpkins and dragons out there these days if you are willing to do a search for them.

On TSR, you can get Windkeeper's Pumpkins. There are also small and large. The plain face one is there as well.

Another pumpkin option is THIS Sims Medieval conversion from Clutter-a-holics. Scroll down the page until you see the mouse on the pumpkin. There is a pumpkin patch with a garland around it just below the mouse on the pumpkin. The download link is just below that .

And if you register and log-in at Plumbbob Keep, there are more dragons there for sure!

Hope this helps. Take care!

I get the same message. Geez. So many threads are being deleted and streamlined. People know not what they do. *sigh*

I'll edit my thread. Sorry about the extra objects. Hopefully, you can find a access a few alternatives out there for the unicorns. There are unicorns on TSR and Blackys Sim Zoo (sorry no direct links)!
