The Modern Victorian

And now for something completely different... I felt I was getting complacent creating nothing but modern/modular homes so I decided I'd try my hand at a Victorian home. Well, a modern Victorian home (hey, baby steps). I did use a home plan. Technically, it may not be a traditional Victorian home- more of a contemporary design... I took artistic liberties.

I loved building the foundation and structure of the home; walls, etc. And I also loved the way the landscaping turned out. The interior decoration is there, but it's less than I normally put forth. It's move-in ready instead of "lived-in"- there are some bedrooms empty, but the main living areas of the home are decorated... again, baby steps. Regardless, I like the way it turned out. I hope you do to. So, here it is... The Modern Victorian...

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.

Very nice! Great likeness to the original.

Remember, being paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you.

Very impressive! It looks so much like the original. I love how you've decorated.

You don't need to place the file in your downloads folder, only the Custom Content, if you downloaded that.

The only thing I can think is that you don't have one or more of the Expansion packs/Stuff packs that's listed.

Best advice would be to try installing it again. If you see the "... was installed successfully" from the Package Installer window then it should appear in your lot catalog in game.
