  • 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.

House, is amazing. But calling it Shetland Manor is a little off as you said it was a remodel of an old ENGLISH manor. Shetland is a set of Scottish Islands, so i know it's a minor thing, but really i just point things out

Phooey! I should have checked. I was just using the name since shetland2000 requested the house but I wish I had said old Scottish manor instead of English. Unfortunately, I don't know how to edit that first bit or I definitely would. At least I learned something! All the best!

Looks like another house I'll have to get. I love that you do such great jobs with just base game stuff. I really wish more would. But until they do, I guess that keeps you as my favorite.

If I may be allowed one little nitpick, for future projects, however; be careful not to place the would be garage too far to the right of the house (as facing it). The driveway, for those who have it, extends out into the road and to the right some distance. If the garage is too close to the edge, then the driveway won't be useable. It's better to place the garage on the left to avoid complications. I haven't played this yet, but I suspect this may be an issue for this one. Flip the design, and you have a bona fide winner.

Cheers!
