Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
It’s been a long time in the making, but La Belle Bateau de Liberté is finally here. Firstly I would like to thank all of you who helped me by giving me feed back over at the Creator Feedback Forum, especialy lulume, Johnny Bravo and SimmyRN. Thanks a lot you guys! I have two versions on offer in this upload, ‘Local Watering Hole’ and a ‘Exclusive Lounge’. I have also created residential versions of the lot, which can be found here.


The boat has 4 decks and if full of relics from its travels, now it sits in its own pond after it was pulled up onto dry land to escape the impending future development of the harbour it once called home. Once on dry land the boat was revealed as being a bit worn, the years hadn’t been too kind and so she was in need of some tender loving care. This is just what she got when she was saved from the destruction she would have faced had she remained in the harbour. Now she is open for business yet again and ready to entertain your sims in a way that a regular community simply can’t. Once on board your sims can enjoy the luxury of the Lounges, Sunroom, Dining Room, Dance Area and even hold a wedding ceremony on the top deck.



The Wild Wild West community, where she has been restored and photographed, has been kind to her and now she is ready to return that kindness by providing a home to those who want it. She has 8 public cabins and one crew/staff cabin, all of which are capable of holding atleast 2 sims. Two community versions are on offer, a ‘Local Watering Hole’ and a ‘Exclusive Lounge’ both of which cost 413,466 simoleons furnished and 205,600 simoleons unfurnished. The lot size is 50 by 50 and so is a very large lot which may be trouble for slower computers as there's a lot to load.



In creating this lot I have used 1 piece of cc, a ship's wheel, courtesy of shakeshaft at The Sims Resource and can be found here.



I hope you will all appreciate and enjoy this creation. A lot of work and effort has gone into it and I shan't be attempting anything quite so grand any time soon If you helped me out in the Creator Feedback Forum, please let me know so I can credit you.
As usual, comments and feedback are always appreciated.

I don't have IP, so I'm not entirely sure of the concept there, but don't they have to fit onto premade bases, because I was reading somewhere that they only came in certain sizes, and none of them looked big enough to accomodate my grand ol' riverboat. If I do ever get IP, I'll give it a go, maybe as a smaller version or something.

I just realised this i probably way to big to fit on a houseboat but that would be so awesome

This is a fabulous lot. I'm planning to make a small rivertown in CAW soon. This will fit right in with my theme. Thanks for sharing.

It won't install for some reason. I tried both versions. And by 'won't install' I don't mean there's any error, it just won't install. I click on the sim3pack twice, but nothing happens. Any other sim3packs install this way, but not yours. I'm not sure why.

Have you tried placing it in the Sims 3's Downloads folder and then installing it through the Launcher?

I managed to unpack it into packages using Delphi's Multi Installer and placed the lot package into the library. Great lot, btw! I'm glad I can have it in my game.

You may want to read what another guy told me in Help, though. He said that the lot is corrupt and has an invalid UNKN resource, and that a piece of CC that comes with it is an unrelated accesory:
