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


Finally I was able to make the Goth mansion look the way it should have looked originally! The Second Empire style suits it perfectly, maybe this is sort of what EA had in mind when they originally built the house, who knows.





The only changes inside are the enlarged attic (thanks to the new roof) and a few minor furniture changes because of the windows.

Some pictures of the inside furnishings and the "before" picture:


Only the base game and the Mansion & Garden Stuff Pack is required.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: $140,342

Additional Credits:
Thanks to gethane for the Lake Crossing neighbourhood which I use to model a lot of my lots! I can always find a nice view in Lake Crossing.

And thanks to Maxis for making this house in the first place, then finally getting around to making the rest of it!

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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

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.

While the house looks lovely, it would be nice if you would edit your upload to correctly reflect EP's required. And yes I see the title itself says requirements, but this is short cutting the download filter.

I would, but Mansion & Garden Stuff is not yet available as an option in the required EPs section of the upload wizard. As soon as it is, I can edit the post to reflect that and remove the warning in the title.
Coffee, anyone?

We haven't got the M&G icons done yet. So in the meantime, creators will have to list it in their post. When the icon is available, they can edit the post to tick off the box in the required area.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

Thank you both for explaining the missing icons. As a Mac player I get highly frustrated at downloads that I cannot have, therefore I make sure to keep my filters in place.

It really does look nice. Looks more like it should.

Great remake, Thanks! I like the fact that the 3rd floor has a lot more space now. Great choice of windows too.

I don't have the EP yet so I'll have to come back to dl. But you're right - this style suits the house perfectly! I do love this house but am frustrated with its kind of weird layout. You have vastly improved the usefulness of the space in the house and made it much more "sensible" looking. Thanks!!!

This really makes me with I had M&G. It looks wonderful with your improvements! I was actually just playing this house yesterday and wondering what I could do to fix it up a bit. LOL.

You are from EA and forces us to buy M&G Stuff, aren't you? :D

Very nice! I imagine this is what the basegame creators really wanted this lot to look like.
