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

WoodandWires suggested desert versions of my Sunnyside lots, and 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've included a couple of the thumbnail pics so you can see how they look.

If you are a basegame player, you will find these useful for your desert neighbourhoods. I suppose these ones would also look better than the green versions for a dirt neighbouhood, at a pinch. If you have the later EPs, you can stick to the original 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 community lots in sizes 1x1 - 1x5, 2x1 - 6x1, 2x2.

Residential lots are available separately. Batteries not included.

Lot Size: 1x1
Lot Price: various

  • 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.
