CARMINE


Carmine is a contemporary house featuring 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, kitchen/dining room, living room, split-level study, basement gym, 3 skylights and a fully landscaped garden with a pond/fountain and modern walkway/bridge.

The house is also easily expandable if you want more space. The basement can be extended to cover the entire area under the house (and of course real basements can be added underneath that), and there is enough space in the upstairs hallway for a set of stairs to add an extra floor, if you don't want to extend the existing split level stairs.

NOTE:
1. For this lot to work, you'll need either whichever patch brings foundations and platforms (or just the latest patch), or the Late Night expansion pack.
2. If the stairs don't work, or the terrain paint looks off, just place the lot somewhere else until it looks right. It's a 30x30 lot so it shouldn't be too difficult to find somewhere to put it.

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.

That's a lot of plants... but thank you for making this! I love almost every contemporary/minimalist/modern house I see, but usually it's either not too easily playable and easy to get lost in, tons of pointless indoor walls and rooms, and sometimes they just look the same. This, however, is one exception. Thank you!

The roof is not showing up in my game. I've tried deleting the file from my game and then re-installing it, but that didn't work. I also tried going into edit town and then returning to the game, but that doesn't work, either! It shows up perfecltly when I'm in Game Setup, but then when I go to build/buy mode or Live Mode, it's not even there! Any tips?

Have you got Advanced Rendering (in the options menu) turned off? I know it stops platforms from showing up properly if it's not turned on, so maybe that's it?
Also, if that is the problem, when you turn it on make sure to restart the game to make it work.

Excuse me, but I just have to explode.

This house is amazing. I'm confused about the "built with (so-n-so) version". My game is patched up to 2.14 (it checks every time I start my game) and this house is built with an earlier version, will it be ok to put in my game or does it have to match exactly? I really like this house and want it in my game and sorry for being backward, thank you for making it and posting it.

If your version is a later one then it should work perfectly. It's only when someone's using an earlier that doesn't support some of the features (eg. fountain and platform tools) then there can be problems.

It's not a real skylight, but a hole in the roof with some fencing around it

Basically, instead of using a foundation (I think) I used quarter height walls and deleted the floor where I wanted the sunken floor. I found a tutorial here which explains how to do it.

I never would have thought to paint the exterior with that shade of eggplant, it's absolutely beautiful. And the design of the interior, you did an amazing job!
