Small Modern/Castle Dollhouses

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
These are small versions of the Maxis “Realistic Princess Castle” and “Modern Life” dollhouses, scaled down to a more manageable size. The Victorian dollhouse at half the original size is available here.



Textures and other stuff are referenced from the originals. They cost 200§/485§, four colour variants each, same tuning as the large versions. Object states seem to work fine from what I’ve seen.



Polygon Counts:
Like the original minus group 1 (dropshadow mesh, which is removed in these since it can't be scaled by way of editing the rig).

Style: Childrens
Room: Bedroom Nursery Study

I'm not sure which, but I think one of these files is causing the same problem that was going on with the double mod pod beds.

I don't think so – unlike with the mod pod bed frame, neither of these is converted into a different type of item. They are all using the tuning of the original dollhouses. So if you are having issues that are similar to the borken mod pod symptoms, they would be caused by something that interferes with dollhouses in general, not specifically these.

ETA: if that’s what’s happening in your game, it would still be interesting to know – from the feedback on this and the other dollhouse upload, quite a few people do not use the Maxian-sized dollhouses but would use these, so whatever dollhouse issues there may be they might have gone unnoticed so far.

At first, I thought it was neat to have a giant dollhouse in my Sims' living room, but its so clunky and there's hardly room to put chairs without having to expand! This makes it so much easier and more reasonable.. thank you <3

Thanks so much. It'll be nice to use your smaller doll houses in the small houses. I've had to only put in the toybox in the smaller houses due to the default dollhouses being so big.

Edit: Just to say I didn't have any issues with any of the 3 dollhouses. I actually use the default one if the house is large enough. I put all 3 of your smaller versions in with the 3 default ones in. No issues. I just wanted to check for myself after reading simmyneutron's post.

Thank you for checking, that's nice of you =). Maybe @simmyneutron can also get back to let us know whether the issue persisted?
