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


Modern Life -3 is a unique, modern, house built entirely over a lake. Its studio styled layout enhances its modern feel, with a white and wood colour scheme complementing this. It suits a single sim's lifestyle and best of all, no pesky neighbours!



I have used some Custom Content in this house, however I have also provided a NON-CC house for those who do not wish to download all the required items.

EDIT: PLEASE READ

After some confusion about using this house I have uploaded a new version of it. BUT, to properly install this house, please follow these instructions.

1. You MUST MUST MUST place this lot on 57 Waterfall Way.
2. You must change the CURRENT Waterfall Way lot to residential.
3. You MUST bulldoze the original Waterfall Way, even if theres nothing on the lot.

Th problem was the neighbourhood rock decorations, by bulldozing the lot, you delete them. Gah. Any help you need, just leave a comment.

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.

Maybe I missed something, maybe I'm just ignorant. None of the lots in the neighborhood are big enough to support this house...? What am I doing wrong??

I'm having the same problem as Young Modern. No matter where I try to place the house I get the message that the lot is to big. What are we doing wrong?? This is the first house that I have downloaded from any site and am just anxious to play it. It's amazing. Please if anyone knows how to fix the problem we are having could you please let us know. So many thanks for any and all help.

This is an amazing lot, but I'm having the same problem as suzzings. I cannot place the lot anywhere in Riverview or Sunset City.

Thanks!

Same problem as suzzie and Thomp. I love the lot but can't place it anywhere.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a matter of fact, I see you have the lot placed by the waterfall. That's where I want to place it actually, it just won't fit.

#24 Old 9th Nov 2009 at 2:57 AM
Hey all I figured out what the problem was. You have to find the lot named the same as the downloaded house. It's by the big mountain and I think there is a waterfall on the lot. It's a communty lot in Riverview and you have to delete the communty lot and change the lot to residential and then the house works perfectly. And I must say it really is awesome. I just love it. If I didn't explain good enough just post and I will try to be more descriptive. Good Luck

I am having the same issue but also with the Luxury Cave home: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=373661 and wondering if lot modifications might have something to do with it. I have added other homes with success. I really don't know what to think of it and would appreciate any help at all. I spent most of the day combing forums and still nothing. I am just not savvy enough, I am afraid, but GREAT house!! Would LOVE to use it!!
