  • 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.

To me it sounds like your issue is that you're in top-down view (which has nothing at all to do with this this lot). Top-down view is toggled with crtl-T. Or just T, perhaps. Or the little button at the bottom left of the UI. .. the arrow that points downwards.

i actually tried that ctrl t didn't do anything. the little button just took me further away, but either way i'm still looking down into the house. I actually have 3 lots that are doing that: this one, one other mini- lot and a community lot that i think i got from here a while back. The one thing they have in common is modular stairs and no full stairs. I'm beginning to wonder if this has anything to do with it...

Hmm, I think I know your problem.. but its a tad late now isn't it?
If my house is on a weird angle I just hit tab and can adjust my view completely from there, Q goes up and E does down and you can move the mouse to look around then just hit tab again and it will stay like that. Its mainly for taking pictures and stuff but T [top-down mode] is only for Build and Buy, when you return to live mode it goes back to normal. If your looking down on it in live mode, the tab camera view should fix it.

And nice house, I love all your houses and like above, I wish I could download them all with just a click of one button! Thanks! (:
