WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF MAGIC: Harry Potter Collection of Lots!

This page contains 2 separate lots: King's Cross Train Station and Hogsmeade Train Station. There are 4 total downloads including an updated, fully furnished version of King's Cross Station (See Below Image of Modern King's Cross) and a Textures Only Version of the Old King's Cross. The Textures Only Version is FURNISHED using only Maxis/EA objects and stephanie b. walls and floors.

Harry Potter Collection: Train Stations (Hogsmeade and King's Cross)



IMAGE OF MODERNIZED VERSION OF KING'S CROSS


INFORMATION
No Harry Potter Collection would be complete without lots that include the Hogwarts Express! I created 2 lots to showcase the train. The first lot is the Hogsmeade Train Depot. The second lot is my Sim version of King's Cross Train Station. I KNOW this is not a perfect replica, but I hope I have captured the spirit of King's Cross. The Hogwarts Express is smaller in the King's Cross lot because I lost myself focusing on the station itself - Sorry! However, the Hogwarts Express on the Hogsmeade lot is much more roomy(with a small engine and 4 boxcars - one for each Hogwarts' House). The boxcars each have an empty cabin (perhaps for bathrooms or snack rooms), a private cabin that seats 4 and 3 rows that seat 6 Sims. Both lots are included in this download. Now your Sims have access to two of the many portals between the Muggle and Magical Worlds!

Other Information:

THANK YOU!
I owe the deepest of gratitude to all the extraordinary artists whose objects helped to bring my vision of Harry Potter's Magical World to life! Thank you for sharing your time and talent with the Sim community. Thank you to the following artists for helping to bring a little "magic" to the Sim World: Be sure to browse the links at the end of the post for other fabulous downloads by each artist!

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLECTION
This set includes both residential and commercial lots. There are a total of 25 download pages (with 34 individual files to download) in this collection.

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

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
First:
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!

Second:
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.

Third:
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.

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.

Thank you Laura!

The walls are my staple. When I first started Simming, I created walls because I could never find just the perfect wall to compliment my visions for the house. Then, I discovered I wasn't half bad at creating lots either! So, I fired myself from the wall design business and started creating lots!

Take care!
