Pleasantview meets the Simstones!

Inspired by the Simstones set by the Mod Squad, I've decided to restart Pleasantview and bring all the Maxis characters back to the stone age. With the exceptions listed below, all items used are either from Maxis or the Mod Squad.

The third family dwelling I've created is the Dreamer family. Their "cave" is built into the side of a hill.

***** NOTE ON CUSTOM CONTENT ******

I am assuming that if you are enjoying the Simstones as much as I am, you have already downloaded the files for the Simstones custom content created by the Mod Squad from this thread:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=172481
To help save bandwidth, I've removed the Mod Squad Simstones custom content from the packaged lot, but you will need to have the Simstones custom content installed in order for the lot to display properly. I have left in the non-Simstones custom content and have detailed those files below.

**********************************

Credits:

Of course, all the great stuff created by the Mod Squad!

I've used Qwinsepiasquared's dirt road replacement for my neighborhood. In the lot, I've used his/her dirt road replacement to cover the street and using moveobjects on I've removed the sidewalk. Testing the lot, it appears that when you import the lot, the street will not be covered and the sidewalk
is back. You can use the moveobjects cheat to remove the sidewalk and place the dirt tile over the street.

I used Targa's "construction ladder" instead of stairs. I thought it had a more "primitive" look to it.

Roddyaleixo's invisible driveway

Also included in thelot are some recolors I have done: walls, floors and terrain paints as well as a recolor of the easel and piano.

The lot is 3x3 and costs §27,470. It has an invisible driveway but no car.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

The dinosaur is a Mod Squad neighborhood decoration. BUT - you can place the neighborhood decoration in/overlapping existing lots so it will show up in the lot view.

You'll find it in the #2 post in the thread along with the car. When you are in neighborhood view, you'll find the dinosaur in the same spot (the three dots) where you would go if you wanted to place an office building or UFO wreckage in your nieghborhood.

Please feel free to use/clone/copy/share anything I have made in whatever manner you wish. Have fun!

Wow...Great work...Thank you!

You might be a big fish in a little pond, but it doesn't mean you've won, because along may come a bigger one and you'll be lost!

It might have something to do with your graphics settings. All of mine are set to the highest. Can you see other neighborhood decorations (like the water tower or billboard) when you are in your lot?

No, I'm going to set my graphics settings a little bit higher, my computer is fast but I think not enough to have all to the highest.
Thanks anyway!!!
