Verona Pass Gypsy Camp - a small, medieval gypsy camp

Requires World Adventures
Built with patch 2.3.33
Uses CC from the Sims Store, Crea Sims 3 and MTS (see details below)

According to various sources online, gypsies first emerged in continental Europe from the 14th century onwards. They appeared in England sometime in the 16th century. I thought it would be fun to try to create a colourful, roadside gypsy camp for the medieval challenge. This is an alternative to the usual style of medieval accommodation.

This lot consists of three roadside gypsy caravans and one outhouse. Each caravan contains a very comfy double bed. One of the caravans offers a kitchenette (with fridge and stove) and baby's cot, another has a desk and bookcase, and finally another one has a dresser and bookcase. Gypsies were known to use the area in front of their caravans for socialising, cooking, eating, sitting around the fire with song and dance. You'll find a fire pit with seating, a four seater dining table, a guitar and a fortune teller's table in the front area of the caravans. To the rear of the caravans, you'll find a garbage bin, an easel and a basic outhouse with one toilet, one sink and one bath tub.

There are a few fruit trees and vegetables growing amongst the forest shrubs as well as fish in the creek. A big big thanks to the awesome CC creators, whose creations added life to this lot!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oooh, it's wonderful! Too bad it requires WA (which I still don't have *sigh*). Is it *possible* to download it without WA, or would it just be missing way to much stuff to bother?

Impressive work, so creative !!!! Congratulation! imho a winner candidate
