Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
So I was playing about with Sims3 and discovered Create a Style

This house started life as a fairly posh house, but the years have not been so kind to it, hence its rather weathered look.

The house has two bedrooms, a downstairs bath and upstairs WC, kitchen-dining and sitting room. The master bedroom has access to the balcony on the front of the house. There is space for a car parking space (or horse hitching rail) on the front right.

At the back of the house there is a vegetable garden with some starter crops and some rocks

The house is not cheap, so I found the freeRealEstate cheat to be extremely useful - in my storyline my Sim Jude inherited the house, so he had his starter money to live on while he worked as a gardener.

INFO Built in a Pets, Ambitions game, only using base game content, patched to 1.26.89. Some of the patterns used in this lot were provided in the last patch so if you are not patched to latest then the lot may not look EXACTLY as in the screenshots.

Lot Size: 20x15
Lot Price furnished: 28824
Lot Price unfurnished: 22746

Credits: armiel for being encouraging and answering all my noob questions with such patience, Inge Jones for checking to see if patterns were provided in patches or EP's.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
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.
