Introducing... "Stoney Falls - Now Sponsored* by Rockefeller!" ...redesigned and updated by Ashkitty!

The Rockefeller sisters, since moving to the lake, have decided to rev up the area a bit. They have generously donated their hard earned simoleons to truly enhance the beauty of their backya--..err, communal fishing place! Let your sims unwind after a hard day of work by swinging 'round to the new and improved Stoney Falls!

I have taken the Stoney Falls lot and made it a lot more... inhabitable. Now, sims will come from all over the neighborhood to party it up in this sweetly remote location. The area is friendly for all ages, with pretty much every imaginable activity allowed. My key goal with this lot was to get my sims socializing and outside, but still in "their yard" and it works absolutely fantastically!

There is even a small, adorable, rose-lined cabin in which you can relax after a long day -- or night -- of play.

Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1 (public, three stalls)
Lot Price: Community
Lot Size: 64x54

57 Waterfall Way

-------------------
Enjoy! Please let me know what you think of it in comments. Any bugs or issues (at least, in my stuff) will be swiftly dealt with!

*(It isn't really "sponsored" irl, but by my fictional Sims family in the game.

Lot Size: 5x5
Lot Price: 15,000

Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

This is a multi-part download:


This lot is designed to go with my "Lady of the Lake" house (although they can be used separately, for people with houses already on the waterfall residential lot). Please try them together as a set and enjoy them.

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.

I'm pretty sure you need Riverview installed for this, as the farm stuff came with Riverview.

I think you may very well be correct, considering that Riverview was the first cc I downloaded.

I just went into the lot in game, and none of the three bales of hay are marked as custom content. Does that mean it was in basegame, or Riverview is being sneaky about its additions?

I think custom contents are included in any *.Sims3Pack files, as they were in TS2.

The Riverview cc is a *.sims3pack too btw...

Anyone without Riverview is playing half a game. It adds so much to the game to have it. My advice is to download it asap. Unless you can't, of course.

Riverview adds the opportuinty to move lots, build is better, etc, etc. Plus a lot of the old sims 2 sims are in there, be it all confused. Don Lothario is an adult, yet Agnes Crumplebottom is the same age in game, 'tis weird.

Do yourself a favour and get the full thing

FWIW, I haven't yet installed Riverview, and I can move lots just fine. I shifted one of the businesses to the outskirts of Sunset Valley, and replaced it with a house. Honestly, I'd be very surprised if Riverview added actual new functionality to the game.

DL page states: This is a multi-part download:

Is your "Lady of the Lake" house uploaded or is it under another name?

Augh, yes, the short version is "I'm working on it," apologies. There is in fact a Lady of the Lake house to download, but it was rejected by MTS ("blocky architecture...?"). I am in the process of renovating it and reapplying, but I got sidetracked by a castle project.

You can find the [in progress] version on TS3 Exchange: here.

I was just refering to the others saying that the hay barrels came with riverview, when they are there without riverview.

FYI. I downloaded riverview. The only things that changed was a new EA neighborhood yippie? , and a cpl of new objects. I was able to move/replace lots before this "new neighborhood"

Labellavita88 stated in post #7 that the hay bales are in decor -> misc. I think I saw like 3 or 4 different designs, square and round. Hope that helps!
