This lot completely crashed my game.I can't get past the neighbourhood loading screen.Can you delete individual lots without going into the neighbourhood itself???

I'm sorry you've had trouble, blackbird. Did you add any other CC that might have caused a crash? Do you have the correct game environment (basegame or Seasons)?

In any case, you can delete a lot from the catalog, outside the game, using CleanInstaller. http://www.modthesims.info/forumdisplay.php?f=441

:D

The little 'secret' to this is that after she got a promotion that included a 55K bonus, she got demoted...and just a day or two later, got re-promoted, with another 55K bonus (which obviously helped ALOT lol)

lol wow i love this house u remade. where did u get alot of the items? O-o

aelflaed, I love this house. Love! I've played it many times and adore watching my neat-freak Sims have nervous breakdowns because, omg, the mess! But thankfully after chatting up the neighbors they usually have enough influence points to con someone into cleaning, which is always fun to watch. And now that I've come back to re-download (new computer, yay!) I have to say the house kind of reminds me of the one in the movie UP. A definite fixer-upper. And an awesome job. Thank you so much!

Thanks! This house is perfect for lazy people-such as myself- who cannot be bothered to do this. Again, thanks.

If there are not CC for horrible walls & floors, I'll add my own before playing, along with my favorite "broken kitchen" and steam punk bathroom stuff. Maybe even a ghost or two...

Also, there is a big challenge thread (here?) that involves downloading houses; one of them is a horrible weed and roach covered lot is REALLY hard to tackle.

I'm thinking I'll move in a female sim, and if a man "volunteers" to clean up, cheat to make her pregnant...story lines always keep me interested. And do the contest too.

HELP please: can we post pics? Where can I find the rules about size, etc?

This house is AWESOME. I like the house's design itself, and to have the challenge built in is a ginormous bonus. I wish it was easier to find on the site. I lost it in a reboot and came back to get it again and looked for months! I just stumbled upon a link to it in an old challenge forum posting today and yay! I can see you used a ton of tags to try to make it easier, I just didn't happen to look for any of them I guess. The site needs a category under Residential for Fixer-Uppers. :)

Much as I love lots like this, I've discovered this is a Bad THING! This obviously lived-house WILL contain fragments of memories, etc, which at this point cannot be cleaned. (Per long threads by the real pros here). They are suggestion (as of just a month or so ago) that NO lot that has EVER had a sim in it should be uploaded. Creators should duplicate their lots for play-testing, then upload the UNUSED version.

Stand up, speak out. Just not to me..

I love this house. It's a great house in and of itself, and it allows me to play the fixer-upper challenge over and over with all kinds of sims.

I'm going to combine this lot with the nickel and dimed challenge, where the mother is a neat-freak and both of her kids are slobs.

"NOT open for inspection."

Very cute idea and description, and I like ttowntallyho's idea to combine it with a trio of neat freaks / slobs for maximum trouble. Thanks for the upload!

I have one question though: is this lot SAFE or UNSAFE to play with?

PanAm, To the best of my knowledge it is safe.

However, I have not played Sims2 in a very long time myself, and I am not up on the latest expert opinions.

May I suggest you make a backup of your game files, and give the house a try if it interests you? If you see any problems, restore the backup. Otherwise, perhaps you can find the "long threads by the real pros" and decide for yourself whether you will risk it.

Whatever you decide, good luck, and happy simming!

It appears to be safe, I played the challenge and have nothing to report (other than minor glitches, like the shower can't be repaired), the Hood Checker can't find any signs of corruption.

I cannot seem to get the file to install in my game. I have the Clean Installer and everything but I can't get it to work. I really want to try the challenge it seems like sooo much fun. But I can't get it to download. Any help?
