This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

When I was growing up, I would've loved to have a treehouse. Sadly none of our trees were big enough since they were planted when I was in grade school. Fast forward.. uh.. a lot of years and I found myself wishing my little sims could have a treehouse. Since we don't have to wait for trees to grow in the Sims I decided to see what I could do about that. I started by editing the birch tree from the game, which was going ok-ish when I saw this tree by misty fluff on her tumblr. Since she has a very open TOU, I quickly snagged that cute little mesh and did a bit of editing to make this decorative tree - which worked fine and I've happily used it since then. Then I got a message a few days ago from Raynuss saying he edited my tree and wanted to know if I wanted it to offer as an alternative. A real tree? That changes with the seasons if you have Seasons? Absolutely. So- with his permission, here is that tree.







The tree can be found in Build Mode>Gardening>Trees and costs 396 Simoleons.

The download does not contain the treehouse, just the tree! But it's very, very easy to build the treehouse itself. There are pics in the download showing how I build the treehouse.
While the tree is base game compatible, if you don't have Seasons ONLY the summer state will show. If you do have Seasons, it will change with the seasons.

Many thanks (and much credit) to misty fluff and Raynuss. Without her conversion, there wouldn't be a treehouse tree. Without his edits of my tree, this awesome seasonal tree wouldn't exist!

Polygon Counts:

I love this tree! I have it on two lots. One in my regular neighborhood for the family's kids to play in, the other in my 'Old West' town where it serves a Native American family as a place to hang their baby's cradle as well as hide a few too modern items up in the branches.

Thanks! The second use you have for the tree is something I hadn't ever thought of. I'll have to keep it in mind.

It works great! I now have it on three lots in my Old West game and it's a great for all sorts of things. Since the tree can be put over itself I can create a very thick leafy canopy where the kids can hang out.

You could do so much with this tree ... make your house as small as you want, or even a little larger with a little help from a cheat or two. And maneuvering two trees together produces a great gnarly tree effect (both as in knotted/twisted or cool ... pick one or both!). Thank you!

I downloaded this back when you uploaded it and I've used it ever since, I love it so much and use it for almost any family that has kids or teens, which is most of my households lol

I'm wondering if it would be possible for this to be converted to Sims 4 though? Or if you'd allow someone else to convert it if you don't want to yourself?

I have no plans on converting anything I've ever made for either Sims 3 or Sims 4. If there is someone who would like to convert this (or anything else I've made) they can! The only thing I ask is that credit is given where credit is due AND that I be sent a link if it's for Sims 4. (I do play it occasionally. )

How do I install this? It's a .package file.

I tried to put it in Downloads, but my game doesn't read. I also tried the Sims Pack Clean Installer. No such luck.

Thanks!
