Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I made the Lake Dela lot to test an easy swimmable lake tutorial I wrote (here).
This lot is 2/3 built on the water with many terraces and diving boards to enjoy water and swimming pleasures

The house is built for up to 6 sims. It is furnished for 4, the ground part is furnished as something like a lawyer office, the part on water is for the living rooms.
The lower deck beetween the 2 parts is only decorative due to the building on water restrictions.

In game, Sims seems to be less clever than on the ground to find the right path, sometimes you will need to click to give them the right way.
The Lake Dela -UNF-.rar file is the larss unfurnished version.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 166 820 / 87 939

Thank you Patul, for your beautiful house and for the marvellous detailed tutorial.
There must be somthing wrong with the first furnished version file - corrupt? Or maybe my "machine" is crazy, it would be nice if others will check it. I admire your creations.

It looks a very lovely place. The details and the house plan are perfect, it's full of little warm corners inside and outside to discover. Thank you man, you're too much generous with the damned little pixelated beings. Kiss and ciao

It's very beutifully decorated. Thank you so much.
