Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Greetings everyone!

This is my first upload and it's a recreation of 170 Main Street from TS2.

The house is an exact replicate of it's TS2 version.



If you have any requests (Sims 2 houses to Sims 3) let me know about it!
More to come!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

LOL wow, trip down memory lane

I gotta say I hated their taste in decor and always gutted it and rebuilt in the Sims 2, but this is sure reminiscent! I see you couldn't resist giving em slightly improved landscaping though :D

It looks pretty close to the house on Sims 2, bot you don't have the bathroom exactly right. The top floor is almost parallel, except for the fact that there is the deck on one side, making that room smaller. Good job though, it looks like everything else looks pretty good.

I tried to improve the landscape because it was too empty...

Ahh it's awesome, cheers! I like that you have done the sims as well, good idea! I'd love to see some more TS2 remakes, especially Don's house; his house in Riverview is rubbish!

Only problem I see with it though, is that the sisters faces are a bit too 'round' - maybe make them more angular (Face-wise) so that they seem more like the picture you posted (they both have very slim cheeks - especially the red-head)

Funny I was just thinking how it would be great if someone would make some houses that were in Sims 2 and here you are.
Nice job!

If nothing can go wrong, something will.

And can you make the Goth family? (I think that was there name...)
