Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Oakmonts are not nouveau riche. On the contrary, they come from old money, and they have been able to maintain their large fortune over the years by being very frugal. For example, when they heard that they could add luxury to their huge, historic country house by purchasing Persian carpets for only 1 simoleon per square foot, they ordered one for each room on the lower floor. The only catch was that when the carpets arrived, they were in 8 - 12 pieces per carpet and had to be assembled like puzzles. The Oakmonts were pretty disappointed, but got to work themselves and put the carpets together, gluing them to the hardwood floors. When they finished, they were actually quite pleased with the result. After all that, Ruell Oakmont invested heavily in the carpets, but found that most people like to buy carpets in one piece. She lost the family fortune and now their house is for sale. Hopefully you have a frugal sim who will see the worth of the property.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • 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.

Hi Mooneh,

When you download, be sure to save the lot in EA Games, Sims 2, Downloads. Find the file and right click on it. Choose Extract Here. Wait a few seconds, and find the sims2 pack of the lot, usually at the bottom of your download list. Double left click on it and the game installer will open. Click install. Then open the game and you will find it in the lots catalog in neighborhood mode. All the best, and thanks for the comment.
