This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Well, it's been a long time, but I'm finally back with something to add to my medieval collection. This time, I've come up with a commercial lot for your medieval sims: a marketplace! Yes, I know... "Medieval Marketplace" is such a clever name. What can I say?

Anyway... this lot is something that sort of popped into my head because I'm a bit of a goofball who likes to build stuff. Basically, this is meant to be a town from an RPG or a video game of some kind. It has all the shops that you'd need for a quest (a general store, a pub, a food store, a bookshop, and a fortune teller), an inn (with three rooms, of course: cheap, average, and luxurious), and of course only one actual house in the entire village--which seems to be pretty typical of most video games, because the people milling about in town never seem to live anywhere. :D

With a little bit of work (aka adding a more strategic cash register), your sims could turn this into a nice business a la OFB. The diagonal building is almost entirely empty (except for the grocer), so you could easily add whatever sort of business you wanted.

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: 240,378

Custom Content Included:

- Tudor Walls by corvidophile2
- Open Sesame Door Recolors by corvidophile2

- Stack of books by Taroo
- Medieval Wall Flagpole adn recolors by marinasims2
- 3 Tile Map by Taroo
- Knight on the Tiles by gromit
- Ye Olde Wall Torch by wintermuteai1
- Chinese Lion by MaxoidMonkey at The Sims 2 Official Site

Custom Content NOT Included:
There were, as usual, a few things that I couldn't include with the lot, so I'm afraid you're going to have to download them yourself.

Lethe_s's medieval hearth and counter recolor, available here as well as her Shield of the Black Prince, available here.

The winery windows (part of the free download) at woodforsims.

The decorative books from AvenidaSims, available here.

The 2x3 Tapestry from Caravan Shop Sims2, available here.

The Crescent arch column by SimWardrobe, available here.

The climbing vine, the larger climbing vine, and the flowering climbing vine, all by Zita and available here.

Aaannddd... I think that's everything. Enjoy!

Oh and don't upload my lot anywhere. Thanks.

This looks great! Nice use of diagonal walls. When you mentioned having one house and a bunch of villagers not owning a home, Ocarina of Time instantly came to my mind.

wow, this blows my feeble attempt at a medieval marketplace out of the water. great job! beautiful!

EDIT: After installing it, I can only reiterate how gorgeous this lot it. I'm absolutely breathless. So much so, that I've removed my own version and plan to use this one. Really great job! I'm in true awe.
