Puggle Farm - a cozy farm home

Requires the World Adventures EP
Uses 1 free item from the Sims Store (see details below)


Inspired by a new (local) Aussie tv show called "Gourmet Farmer", Puggle Farm is a small-sized, 3 storey farm house with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, storage shed/nectar making facility, fully stocked fishing creek, combined kitchen and dining, cozy lounge area with fireplace, fruit orchard, vegetable plot, bbq and bench and cottage garden landscaping. Also has skill building painting easel and chess board. There is room at the front for a car space. All of this for under 80,000 simoleons! :D

This lot is ideal for any green thumb, vegetarian, angler type Sims couple or family in your neighbourhood.

Important!: the arched bridge functions when you direct your Sims to use it, otherwise they tend to run around the creek to reach the front door. After fair bit of play testing, I am not sure what causes this confusion in the Sims' path choice other than the entire building itself having been built on an angle.

1 free item from the Sims Store has been used to help decorate this lot:

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is absolutely lovely! I love the way you laid everything out and made it so cozy and functional.

EA says the reason sims don't use the bridge is because you built it on foundation(to place the stairs) and they see that as another floor they'd have to traverse to get to where they're going. They'd rather stay on the same floor...if that makes any sense. I think I read it in the CAW Guide.

Awesome job!

Oh I love this so much. I don't have WA though. This house makes me want to go buy it.

I'd be interested in having some of the beautiful patterns you used for wallpaper. Please?

Nothing important, but just a question. Are there platypi in that show?!

I honestly got really excited when I saw puggle. <33

Wow, thanks to you all for the awesome responses, I am honestly chuffed!

Colemarie - ahhhhh, thank you, that is very handy to know

PalmBlad - this lot was built on the Pinochle street, right at the end of it, in the Sunset Valley neighbourhood (default that comes with the game)

Autumnfoxx - all the patterns are the ones that come with the game, some of which were modified by me using the Create-A-Style

lauraluxurious - no no baby platypuses in the show, but there are platypuses all about this particular area of Tassie - we've seen them in a large fresh water dam not too far from our own house

Wonderful house, but I seem to have a little problem with it. None of the plants will become harvestable after they are first picked, and, none of the new ones planted reach maturity. I have checked to see if there were any mods conflicting but could not find any. Also, this does not happen with any of my other farms/houses. Any ideas? Anyone else have this problem?

Hey gbreez,

Sorry for the problem - I am afraid that those plants were planted using the "testingcheatsenabled true" debug catalogue. I am not sure if doing this has any bearing on whether or not the plants should behave like this though. Since these plants were of normal quality anyway, perhaps you could just replant a higher quality seed, see this great gardening guide here:

http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/s...w-to-garden.php

I tried googling the original problem as well, but no one has mentioned it.
