Mini residential lots



THESE LOTS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH ANY EP AND THE BASE GAME

All the sizes for mini residential lots.
In the archive Mini_Residential_Lots.rar you'll find all the horizontal sizes: 1x1 - 2x1 - 3x1 - 4x1 - 5x1 - 6x1.
The horizontal residential lots are the same as Andy's Small Lots , only with a more readable thumbnail
In the archive ML_Mini_Vertical-ResidentialLots.rar you'll find all the vertical sizes: 1x2 - 1x3 -1x4 - 1x5.
Please, look at the screenshots.
In the game you'll find the lots in the Lots & Houses Bin - > Unoccupied even if they are empty.
The various lots can be easily identified in the catalog, thanks to the clear thumbnails.
Don't look for them in the empty lots!!

You can easily increase their size with the LotExpander by Andi8104

Policy and License Agreement

Anyone can freely use these lots to build his own lots, as long as they are posted ONLY on free sites.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

I am so happy to say thank you so much for I love these lots. You are the best for uploading them. I can easily do alot of the building cheats especially the side drive without finding the right corner to put them on. Heck I do side drive after placing the lot on the middle of the block. LOL I love you for this!

Do the car portals on the thin (1x3 etc.) lots work correctly? I'm using some 1x3 lots that I downloaded from the Lot Expander thread, but I'm having problems with those. My car-owning sims never get the message they need to be at work in 1 hour nor do they autonomously get in their car. Also the schoolbus never picks the kids up, they're only dropped off.

I have a working 1x1 residential lot (downloaded from the Lot Expander thread), and I have no problems with ownable cars, pool cars, bus and NPC cars.
But I guess that having only 10 tiles of street may cause some problems to the car portals...
If this may help, in my 1x1 lot I've moved (with the moveobject) the mailbox few tiles towards the beginning of the street (towards the entrance car portal)...

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

Do these go in downloads, or somewhere else? I think they're awesome-- just what my cat ladies and knowledge sims need, nice small lots to clutter up )
