Tour Across America

Starting in Decatur County of Indiana, a lot has been spotted bearing agriculture life. The Field and turf of half an acre has been cultivated to expressively function in the way of formulating produce by the quantity.

Upon entering the lot one might notice a pool and other necessities to the west of the grounds, however no one can miss the garden producing fruits and vegetation off to the right of the lot (hint: add garden and produce with Sims 2 Seasons.)

Walking down the long country road approaching the house there can be found a small pond in junction with the home to the left and garden to the right (Seasons Acquired? Go Fish). Fencing on the lot is made of traditional picket, commonly found through out the US.

Entering the house one is welcomed by hardwood floors, a living area to the right and left of entry, a dining area separating the living area from the kitchen found towards the rear of where you stand. Entering the door on your right off the living area will lead you to the Masters suite.

* * *

Off the living area you would then progress down a hallway following a fireplace and a bathroom. The hall leads to bedroom 1 and 2 and the rear exit of the house.

Exiting out to the back yard, as you peer out along the far out stretch acre of the lot while rounding the back of the house on the left side, you'll notice the pool area, along with a swing set, and other skill building necessities, which can be found through out the lot.

We will now leave you to discover other things about your new lot, for the next flight leaving for Greer Arizona would be in about another hour.

  • 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.

I wish my computer could handle such a large lot. I've got a pretty little co-op of farmers that could use a nice ranch like this.

Beautiful lot! I live in the Midwest, so this lot was perfect for both my sims and myself

Looks like a typical midwestern house, but Decatur isn't that pretty.

I'd just like to say, your tour across America collection is pure brilliance. You can see all the hard work you put into these homes. They look amazing in game and are great for Sims homes. Thank you very much! Your hard work is worth it, and appreciated!!!

This is a lot I needed, but never could have built myself! Thanks for sharing.
After I swapped in some of the Seasons stuff it's perfect for my isolated farming sims.

This is one the few lots that would profit from having another expansion pack in the requirements, i.e. Seasons. And I usually prefer base game only lots.
(I understand that there are reasons for not making this a seasons lot, like keeping it the same for the whole series or even you not owning that EP. ;-) )

Fair warning to downloaders--the pool has diving boards and no ladders, so don't free range your sims unless you've fixed that or like death. < - New Prosperity Challenge. Last update: 6/9/14
