Additional Credits:
Added Missing file. Mailbox now in Lot package. If you already have the lot in game go to http://daydream.etowns.net at Sim a Little Dream a Lot to get the mod/hack mailbox, otherwise you will have no Live mode when Sims are on the lot.. Big thanks to Xtiffer for bringing it to my attention and to Canoodle, MikckeyMouse254, and Ooga Booga for helping me to correct the problem. Hope this takes care of everything. Happy Simming.
A huge thanks to Macarossi, Marvine, Delphine, SimVeggie, Khakidoo, and Jasmine. If I missed anyone, I'm sorry, I am new to using custom content. But you all have my deepest gratitude and admiration for your talent.
A special and heartfelt thanks goes to Shakeshaft at TSR for her permission to use her shed grass. Please no one re-upload her content, as this was a one time gift.
And thank you MTS2 for all the fun and challenge.

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

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.

Goya, sure that's OK. Have fun. Thanks for letting me know what you think.
Make sure you pick up Phaenoh's grill (great entry) it's the perfect companion for the cave!

It's very beautiful and natural - I really like it. I just have a slight problem when I try to play the cave. I've moved in a small family - but when I enter the lot I have no Live Mode. My Sims are not there and the Live Mode option is greyed out. From neighborhood view the family does seem to live there - aka their description is there like they usually are with other families.

I've noticed that the lot does not have a mailbox (or at least I haven't found it) - It might be due to the missing mailbox that I have no live mode (just guessing). So how do I fix this?

Xiffer, good question. I didnt realize this. Let me see and I wiill let you know ASAP! Thanks.
Added note; Xiffer, my power supply is going out on my PC, dont know how much I can do right now. Try downloading a mailbox, installing it on the lot and see if that works. Let me know if it does or not, so I can try to get it right either after I fix this PC or maybe through another PC. I am so sorry for the trouble!

Added the mailbox hack suggested by Canoodle and now the lot works fine in my game. You can re-down the lot or go to Sim a Little Dream a Lot and get the mailbox yourself.

whitewizardp, you will have to have Seasons and BV for the waterfall and its effects to show, as well as for some of the vegetation. Sorry.

Default Clean Installer
A recent member had a problem installing this lot. I used Clean Installer to remove the 3 Sims In Paris items (2 rugs,bed) and sent that to her. After that she reported no further problems with her installation. So if you encounter a similiar problem, I would suggest the same for you. Thanks and Happy Simming!
