Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
SWAMP LODGE - A SimStones starter home
(UNI)+NL+OFB REQUIRED! Read the post for additional info.

In brief: 1 large bedroom, 1 kitchen/living room, 1 bathroom and a nice open space for dining and leisure - Furniture and landscaping included - § 19,924 - NO HACKS

While creating and testing the SimStone set, I built this house for my test family; now the SimStone set is out, and I thought it was too a nice house to just delete it, so here it is

The main characteristic is that the entire house is built on palafittes, over a swamp; to access the house there is a nice wooden bridge to cross.

The house features a large bedroom, that can easily be split in two rooms. In a smaller, separate building there is the kitchen / living room. The dining table is outside (very nice for romantic dinners! ), along with the grill and a record player (yeh! party time!!!).

The bathroom is on a different level, in a separate straw hut (the stairs help keeping the toddlers out of the bathroom, which is a very welcome side effect...).

There is also a driveway (it's invisible, but trust me, *there is* one! ), in front of the house.

I created this house using my full game: UNI+NL+OFB+FFS. I tested the lot also in a UNI+NL+OFB game (without FFS) and it worked. I'm not sure if UNI is really required: if someone has NL+OFB alone, please tell me.

This is a SimStone house, and I made wide use of the objects from the SimStone set. Basically, I suggest to download all the objects (obviously, the lot needs the objects only: no clothings etc...). All the SimStone objects used in this lot are NOT INCLUDED in the lot itself, so you have to download them by yourself.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

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

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

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.

Thanks Numenor! This will go very nicely in my Bedrock neighborhood. I have hardly played any other neighborhood since the Simstones set came

* If you download my sets please note that I usually include a collection file. Please do not pm me that you can not find something from my sets if you have not yet installed the collection file. I do it for a reason. Thanks!

This is very, very neat. Awesome job. I love the SimStones stuff, they make TS2 look like a completely different game ^^ (which is refreshing)

I only have NL and it does not work w/o OFB. Looks like I have to get it now as I would love to have your house.

Motherspet, does the house crash your game? Or just you can't install it using the Maxis installer?
If the latter, try installing it using the Clean Installer (even the Q-Xpress should work, but I'm not sure).
