A Small Modern Kingdom (No CC and Fewer EPs) Part 1 of 5


This is a small collection of Medieval/Castle lots for those Simmers who could not download the Gwrych Project or Simmers who prefer the medieval feel of castles without Custom Content and using minimal EPs.

INCLUDED IN THIS "SMALL KINGDOM" SET:
* CASTLE (2 Versions)
* ROW HOUSES (2 Versions)
* PEASANT HOVELS (2 Types, 5 Versions)

Important Notes:
* This collection is being presented in 5 small parts due to the various EP combinations used to create each set of lots.
* No User Created Custom Content was used to create these lots. However, there is a small list of "suggested" items noted at the end of this thread.
* No Stuff Packs were used to create this collection.
* These lots have a medieval feel in modern times.
* These lots are fully furnished (with the exception of Part 5: A Small Kingdom Starter House Collection).
* These lots were created using Any Game Starter by Numenor found HERE.

* EPs USED FOR PART 1 of 5: University, Night Life, Bon Voyage and Apartment Life

Note:
If you would like to setup "A Small Kingdom" as a complete neighborhood, you will need University, Night Life, Open For Business, Apartment Life and Bon Voyage.

SPECIAL NOTE TO THOSE DOWNLOADING THE "REGULAR" GWRYCH COLLECTION
I am also releasing the GWRYCH MEDIEVAL MARCH (27 Lots) AFTER I upload the 5 Parts to this "A SMALL KINGDOM" set. The Gwrych Collection will include alternative and LOADED versions of several of the lots included in this set, but decorated with Medieval Decor. So...all you Gwrych fans, feel free to download these lots as well as there will be differences between the 2 sets. However, keep in mind that the bases for these lots were used to create many of the in the Gwrych Medieval March lots. The LOADED versions will have all the usual Medieval Custom Content and use ALL EPs and Stuff Packs. Look for the Gwrych March Set soon.

SUGGESTED SMALL KINGDOM DOWNLOADS:

*FIREPLACE
I didn't include fireplaces in several of the lots (including the castle) because I feel it would conflict with the exterior "look". However, I do believe the Chimneyless fireplace by Mia found HERE will add a bit of "warmth" to your "Small Kingdom" lots.

*SEASONS BUYABLE WISHING WELL (IF YOU HAVE SEASONS)
I DID NOT use Seasons to create these lots, so I didn't include the Wishing Well. However, if you have Seasons, adding the wishing well to the lots will give them a bit more of a medieval feel. The extracted Seasons Buyable Wishing Well can be found HERE.

*SIGNS FOR BUILDINGS
I think the Doctor's Office can benefit from a few Business Signs (especially a Sim Visa sign behind the reception desk). SaraF created a few signs you may find useful that can be found HERE and HERE.



This is a multi-part download:


"A Small (Modern) Kingdom" has 6 seperate uploads that include 3 Sets of Neighborhood Maps and 5 Sets of Modern meets Medieval Lots (Castles, Hovels, Villages, Row Houses, etc.). Please note that many of the lots have several versions to include RESIDENTIAL, APARTMENTS, HOTELS, COMMUNITY LOTS and BEACH LOTS. So be sure to check each one out!
