I've already made two similar lots to this- one for fairies, and one for vampires, so if you want to check those out, search for 'island'.

I thought of making a witch version of my supernatural island lots when I made those two other ones, but I never got around to it. I figured out how I'd like to make it just yesterday, so I went to making it!

Oddly, the most difficult part of making island lots is the terrain and terrain painting. There is simply a lot of terrain to adjust (especially for the foundations, and to flatten the terrain where everything is). Why am I telling you all this? Just know it will take a bit of work to adjust the terrain if you wanted to for some reason. The terrain painting isn't perfect, because it's impossible to be on island lots. Around the rocky part, the default terrain paint shows through a little. This isn't a huge deal if you place it on a sandy lot, but it does look a little weird on a lot with the bright blue, water terrain.

I was thinking of making an island for your alien sims- like a lunar lakes/moon type terrain. Thinking about it, I think it would look sweet. Would anyone be interested in that?

There's a little entrance to the basement behind one of the bleachers. Down there is a bathroom, a living room, and an alchemy room.

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.

Thank you so much! This is the perfect witchy place, avoiding installing bizarre contraptions in modern surroundings.
