Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Categories: 1 Residential lot, 4 Lodgings, 3 Community lots
Neighborhood: ALPS!
furnished: totally
tested: yes, i've tested a clone of all lots
tested with and without freetime




Let's go on holiday in Europe :p

I love Italian mountain places and I decided to recreate a whole neighbourhood dedicated to Alps. 1 Chalet for vacation home, 3 Hotels, 1 camping, 2 community lots, 1 beauty farm for a special winter holiday week.

ALL lots use the same CC.
ALL CC are included in Chalet.rar.
CC are included ONLY in Chalet.rar, other lots'sims2packs have no CC included, so you have to download Chalet.rar to view other lots correctly
(or download separately all CC indicated in the list + CC not included, I tried to be more clear possible in listing)


If you don't want to download chalet.rar but you wish to download other lots, take care of this:
- it's not necessary to download simsinparis kitchen because these 4 CC are only in the Chalet (while all others CC are everywhere in all 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.

If I interpret correctly your question, you have only to download it, and, when appears in the lots-catalogue, place it in the mountain-neighbourhood (if you have space, otherwise move some lots or place it in a new neighbourhood that you can create)

This is crazy awesome! I've always wanted to make better BV vacation lots... but you've done a much better job than I ever could!! It's so detailed... *pets* I love your stuff!!

TO MODDERS IT MIGHT CONCERN:
I thought of a great mod, and thus am requesting... is it possible to tweak the witch spells so that a witch of any alignment can do any spell?
Just putting this out there, since I didn't want to haggle at any of you wonderful modders out there.

Yes, it depends of what cc you don't want to download. Some cc could be automatically replaced with maxis objects (for example stove or counter), others could not appear. But of course you can play in it. To be sure, enter in the lot in building mode, without sims, and correct, replace, add objects in the lot

Phone Booth I didn't included is only a recolour, so it doesn't matter if you can't download it
