Tired of plunking down an oasis in the desert every time you build?

WoodandWires asked for desert versions of my Sunnyside lots. I thought it was beyond me, but with some assistance, I have done it. So here is the set - empty desert lots in small sizes. They even have custom thumbnails in the catalogue (thanks to MaryLou), so they are easy to spot. I have posted a couple of the thumnail pics below, so you can see them.

If you are a basegame player, you will find these useful for your desert neighbourhoods. I suppose they would look better than the green ones for a dirt neighbourhood too. If you have the later EPs, you can stick to the original Sunnyside set, as the game matches the hood terrain when you place the lot anyway. I don't know exactly which EP brought in that feature, but I have it in Seasons at least.

The set includes residential lots in sizes 1x1 - 1x5, 2x1 - 6x1, 2x2.

Community lots are available separately. Batteries not included.


Lot Size: 1x1
Lot Price: various

Thanks to Andi8104 and MaryLou for the original mini lots.

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.

With cunning, and a lot of assistance

These days, Mootilda's LotAdjuster will do it quite easily for you.
