Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The 6th installment of the Pelican Lane series rolls onto the showroom floor today.

6 Pelican Lane is a 3-6 bedroom, 3-4 bath beach or vacation home that features:

A private beach with swimmable ocean.
A basement carport, with parking for 2 cars.
A walk-out basement apartment (perfect for live-in help, or extra bedrooms).
A great room with deck/beach access and ocean views.
A large kitchen which is open to the great room.
A master suite on the first floor, or a private family/rec room.
A main floor study/nursery.
2 double bedrooms on the second floor.
1 single bedroom on the second floor.

*Pretty notice: You may have to download the invisible driveway recolor by roddyaleixo in order to not have the Maxis driveway uglifying the place.

*Download instructions:

If you are using one of my custom neighborhoods, download 6 Pelican

If you are using Maxis beach neighborhoods, download 6 Pelican Lane

6 Pelican may or may not work in Maxis 'hoods. 6 Pelican Lane will NOT work in my custom hoods, so download accordingly. There may be minor cosmetic differences (different plant placement, etc) between the 2 houses, but I tried as much as possible to keep them the same.

  • 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. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Pelican Lane is ending up being a very beautiful area. When your done with this you will have to make us a new lane inland.
Thank You for another great home for our game.

Pictures look wonderful!

I downloaded the Pelican Lane Maxis Lot, and placed it in my Bluewater Village suburb of Pleasantville. I have tried moving in two different Sim families of my own, and both times the game has crashed.

I can go in game and play a beach lot next door to this one and have no troubles.

Is anyone else having this happen?

Still, beautiful lot. I hope to be able to use it soon!

I am not sure what is going on here, but someone else is having the same problem with 5 Pelican Lane, and it seems that she is also trying to play in the Bluewater Village neighborhood, as a suburb.

I built the Maxis version of this house in Crescent Island (the reason I didn't build in Bluewater is that the shoreline is so uneven), and moved it around/entered it in different Maxis neighborhoods, with no problems. However, I tested it in a "clean" version of Bluewater - not the Pleasantville suburb, so maybe the issue is somewhere in there.

My only guess is, something with the Bluewater terrain is causing the crashing...usually when I'm testing the houses, if I get crashes it's because the terrain (where the street level starts sloping toward the water) is too high or too low for the lot it's being moved into. There's not much I can do about it unfortunately, Maxis beach terrains aren't very normalized

I'm sorry.

I adore your pelican lane houses, and i'm praying it will work in my 'clean' (as Caupi put it) Bluewater neighbourhood. If my game crashed (or graphics adaptor has internal error) I don't blame you, because you warned me.

Thankyou again, Lets just cross our fingers and leave an offering the almighty Grilled Cheese Deity. (Sorry if i spelt that wrong)

Love your Pelican Lane houses, but cannot seem to make them fit in any of my neighbourhoods. I see that you made them in Crescent Island, but can't find that map anywhere. Is it possible you could make it available for download please? Thanks

The Pelican Lane series beach houses were actually built on my custom neighborhood, Copperhead Causeway (although they have been tested and are placeable on any of my custom neighborhoods). You can find all 3 of these for download on my downloads page.

Caupi- I love your houses, and I especially love your walls, the soft pastel interiors! Any chance you can do more of these? You have a gift for color, and they're just gorgeous.

Caupi- Iam having the same issue as others with any of the Pelican Lane houses. Maxis or custom, as soon as you click on the lot the game crashes. I'd like to try you custom neighborhood but cannot find any.

This is a beautiful house and the perfect size for my family. I finally found an area suitable for beach homes in my custom neighborhood and placed this house there. However, after attempting to enter the lot, my game crashed. Anything to do?
