Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This hotel lot was made for the Wanderlust contest and was my third submission to that contest. This is what I said about it:

"A Ski Chalet in Waldigrenze Valley
So, the first time I ever went skiing about a million years ago in Italy as a teenager, I didn't know it then, but I stayed in a classic Alpen chalet. I discovered a number of other things on that trip including cappucinos, that U-shaped and hanging valleys were, in fact, a thing despite what I thought about them in Geography classes and that proper Italian pasta, cooked by Italians tastes divine just dressed with olive oil and salt and pepper. So, in memory of that trip and in tribute to all things European (because I'm apparently not going to be one much longer), I present das Goldenrosen Landhaus, my version of an Alpine ski chalet (this one based in Austria by the name). These buildings are usually made of stone and wood and have interiors which feature warm wood tones, fur rugs and roaring fires - which is what I was going for."



This is a hotel lot. There are six rentable colour-coded bedrooms with attached bathrooms, a lounge with a bar, a dining room and a sauna. The rooms are a mix of single, double and family. It makes an ideal base for a mountain getaway (with skiing - how I wish sims could ski (I know about Chris Hatch's mod - just wish EAxis had done it, a winter sports EP would've been great)). The lot was made in AGS in an empty neighbourhood, has been cleaned of any sim references and then treated with Chris Hatch's lot cleaner. The Sims2Pack file was saved without any CC - you will have to download the needed CC (see below). You can load the lot without the CC but you will get a very stripped down version (decorate it yourself!) and a very pretty birch tree garden - not what was intended but nice anyway. Despite what the pictures show, the lot has never been played - those pictures are from a test version (so it has been play-tested).

Note
I used the Mountain Fireplace in this lot. This is a BV fireplace which comes without a base (why EAxis?). To get round this problem, I built a piece of foundation underneath the bottom of the fireplace outside the lot (using the Lot Adjuster to do so). However, you might want to investigate this fix by Huge Lunatic and delete-and-replace the fireplace (deleting the foundation tile first) to get a base to generate. I didn't include this in the CC because it's a default/recolourable replacement mod.

Custom Content
There is quite a bit of CC used in the lot and a complete list follows. I packed the lot up without its CC but there is a link at the bottom of the page with a bundled rar file with all CC included to save you chasing round for it. All CC is included in the bundle except that which is uploaded here on this page and two items - Reyn's Open Underneath Deck Stairs and an OMSP (see below). If you don't have those items already, I'd advise you to go and get them since they are both a great enhancement to the game.

Content made by me
I made some CC for the lot as follows. These are not included in the lot file but are uploaded here on this page.

- Chalet walls and floors - there are two wooden interior chalet walls made using a texture from High Resolution Textures. These are found in Paneling and cost $8.
- and a lovely wooden chalet floor with a texture from The Foundary, found in wooden floor and costing $7.
- There are three lodge walls - a wide-logged one called Log Cabin Siding used on the upper floors on the outside of the chalet and two narrower-logged walls, called Clapboard Siding, used on the sauna and the roof level, one horizontally laid, the other vertical. These textures were made by me (quite a long time ago now too). These are in Siding and cost $8.
- There is a simple brown recolour of the in-game Goth Aged Wood floor (see comparison picture) which was used for the ceilings. This is also in wooden floors and costs $8 (that was a mistake - it should be $6).
- Recolours of EAxis's Modern Tile GO! walls used in the bathrooms in yellow, purple and brown (I also included an orange which is not used but I wanted that colour for the set). These were made so I could colour match the bedrooms and bathrooms. They are in Tiles and cost $1 just like the originals.
- Recolours of the IKEA SVEJE Rug used in the bathrooms in purple and brown with an extra orange recolour - done for the same reason. I've always liked using these rugs in bathrooms. The rug is in Decorative>Rugs and costs $19.
- I also made a quick set of matching floor tiles for the walls following the model of those done by Rosebine. These are not used on the lot but I include them because I thought people might like them since Rosebine did such a good job extending the set and making those walls useful and more usable. They are in yellow, purple, brown and orange to match the walls I added to the Modern Tile GO! set by EAxis. They are in Tiles and cost $5 just like Rosie's.

Custom Content from elsewhere
Not included and not in bundle
Reyn's open underneath wooden deck stairs here and you also need Numenor's recolourable stairs too so that these work. The stairs used though aren't recoloured - they're just the base colour.
One of Silent Lucidity's OMSPs (small one, no. 3) from here.

Neither of these things is absolutely essential. If you don't have them already, both are really useful additions to the game but if you don't install, the game will just default to the regular deck stairs and give you a couple of free-floating wall shelves. You will need to replace the stairs in that case. I didn't include them in the bundle since they are such common CC and many, many people already have them.

Not included in lot file but bundled - you can use the links to find all the files or use my all-in-one bundle file linked below.

Beddings - taken from several places as follows. Some are rather old and, in a couple of cases, I have edited the textures to remove fuzzy areas and other small blemishes.

S2D Red Crazy Quilt (edited) - by Sims 2 Day. It's a very old file (where I have tidied up the texture a little). Wayback Machine shows the site but no pictures - seems to be on p.35 of the bedding archive. Sims2Day is on the Graveyard as far as I know but the Graveyard is currently down so I can't check.

Simcastic Green Velvet Bedspread (edited)
Site long gone: The bedspread was one of four which can be seen on page four on the site's image on the Wayback Machine the files are also available at the Graveyard though that is currently down.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

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

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

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.
