Baby Makes 3

You have just gotten wonderful news- there is a new addition to the family on the way. Your coupleness is about to expand. One, two and baby makes three! That loft is not going to fit anymore. The cozy studio is about to burst. You have been paying rent long enough. It's time to make the plunge and buy your very first house. They call it a starter because this is where you become a family.

We have a lovely cottage furnished and ready for your new family. It is on a flat piece of land with a large backyard. It has a spacious living room, a modern kitchen, a cozy main bedroom and a darling nursery. You will want to see this one today- so don't delay. Baby Makes 3!



Attention: This lot is a LIBRARY FILE, not a sims3pack. DO NOT install it through the launcher. It DOES NOT go in your mods folder.
Navigate to Documents>Electronic Arts>The Sims 3> library. Place it in your LIBRARY folder.

This lot is a fully furnished, true starter home. To keep the cost under 18,500- the amount a couple starts the game with, furnishings are a bit sparse and taken from the lower end of the catalog. There is lots of room to grow, and your sims will enjoy trading up as their budget allows. There is room for expansion, and a big back yard to furnish as you wish. The house has: a living room, a kitchen, a main bedroom, a nursery and a bathroom. It is base game only and no cc. It was built in Roaring Heights and placed in Sunset Valley for picture taking. Building with a tight budget was challenging and fun. I hope you enjoy the result.

I don't know if it's just me, but I tried adding this gorgeous little house to my game, but it never shows up. I definitely placed it under Mods > Packages since it is a .package file. Yet it doesn't show up in the lots library in-game when adding lots and families. I feel I'm doing something wrong and I'm just being silly (which I know I can be at times).

Hi @Edorenel The way to install lots that are package files is to put them in the library file: Documents>Electronic Arts>The Sims 3>Library. This is the folder that is just above your mods folder (if you sort in alphabetical order). It is where all the files for households and lots are stored. So move the lot file (unzipped of course) into Library and then you will find it in the bin in-game. Enjoy!

RE: Baby Makes 3 (Base Game)
Ohhh~ LOL! Why, thank you! That really helped me! Wow. How did I not think of this? That just zoomed by my brain. Ha, ha! Ty very much again! Greatly appreciated.

Edit: It still won't show up. Here's two screenshots to show what I saw on my end:

@Edorenel Your set up looks correct. I downloaded the file from MTS to check that it didn't get corrupted on upload, and then I installed it in my game the same way I suggested to you. If you look at the pics below, you will see the same installation pathway, and then there it is in my game (yes, a game folder that did not have Baby Makes 3 installed before).

Are you on patch 1.67 or 1.69? Both will work, but earlier patches may work also. I think you should redownload the lot, and then remove the first version and replace it with the new version. This should be done before you launch the game. Let me know if this works.
