Awesome.

My eyes are just a little sweaty today.
They've been looking around a lot, searching for you,
They've been looking for you,
Even though I told them not to.

This truly is awesome as that1chica said. I will have an entirely pbox neighborhood soon. Lately I have been using more of the "country houses." I swear you must be reading my mind, whenever I need a new lot you're uploading just what I need, but what I could never build.

I love this layout. One question... I notice the mailbox has been moved. How did you do that, and does it have any implications for me if I download the lot?

to move the mailbox hit ctrl-shift-c at the same time and type in "moveobjects on" (without the ") and then go into buy mode and you can move almost anything but make sure you turn it off by retyping it and instead of putting on put off because otherwise you can wierd things.

Question plasticbox......Why do you make so many of them? Do you just have nothing to do? By the way it is cool looking

Yes, it has implications. The mailbox is used as a location-suggestion by the game. Moving it can affect the move-in video (the taxi may not stay on the road) and where visitors walk to when they enter the lot. There may be some other things along those lines: pizza and newspaper delivery, ... I can't quite remember everything. If you find that you don't like the new gameplay, just move it back to the usual location.

This is a cute house.

Love at first sight! When I try to make small, cute houses, they end up huge and ugly... Guess some people are just talented

Since I haven't said it in a while: OMG THE CUTENESS!

I absolutely adore this house, plasticbox! I love the white & red colour scheme, I love the shape of the house, I love the homey feel it has inside, and I love all the little outdoor details that make it so lovely and real without being overrun with 1000 flowers and trees. Like that little gate and row of columns, and that nice path surrounding the cute little front garden.... it all seems so simple when you break down the elements, yet somehow when I try to build stuff like that myself, I fail miserably.

So thank you for sharing this cutie (and all your other houses o' adorableness) with sucky builders like myself. And thanks for keeping it CC-free too!

Thank you for the information, Mootilda. I thought I remembered that the mailbox affects some actions.

Also, thanks to Kolipoki. I assumed it could be moved using the moveobjects cheat, but I wasn't sure.

Not one of your best. The bathroom tub cannot be used, the toilet is in the way. I have to rebuild it every time I use this one.

I know I used this house in my own game (back when I had TS2) and there were no issues with the bathroom. On the screenshot I don't see how the toilet would be in the way … sims only need to be able to access one end of the tub (where the tap is). This is an arrangement I use very often and never had problems with.

Anyone else have this issue? Maybe bathtubs have changed with a later EP or something?
