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.
Hi everybody

this is my first upload so be kind!

playing and making mostly medieval worlds on CAW I couldn't find an alternative to the ea houseboat options so I made one!

this is basically a shell which fits round the narrow curved hull houseboat and gives the impression of a medieval galleon, it is a remodel of the ea pirate ship diner mesh from barnacle bay which I have added details too and re-meshed to remove the diner door and add a bottom to the ship. (don't want it sinking do we!)

you can build a single floor house inside the boat with the base of the second floor being the deck of the galleon. For convenience I have included a houseboat lot with a basic structure completed which can be placed at any port, no other cc is included. if you build your own make walls that fit the edges of the houseboat and when you place the pieces they will line up from the front. (moveobjects cheat is required)
when the galleon is placed at any port the jetty that connects the houseboat to the port lot will clip into the stern of the ship, your sims can navigate through this without a problem however you will need to create a more realistic pier if it bothers you, otherwise its fine just extend the jetty!.

the Bow and stern can be found in the DECOR, SCULPTURES categories for 1000 simoleons and the mast for 500. These are NON CASTABLE pieces. so the colour option you see is the one you get, there wasn't a way round for me to do a re-colourable version of this mesh at this time.

I have done a brief play test of this and corrected any errors I came across however if anybody comes across any let me know and I will try to correct.
