Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Villa Renderme - a Provençal group house

Requires World Adventures
Does NOT require Ambitions
Built with patch 2.7.7
Uses free Sims Store CC

Villa Renderme is a "omg everyone has Ambitions but me, wahhhhh!!!!" house built over the last few days while I impatiently await for the postal delivery of my order of Ambitions. It's crumbling (like my sanity) and is in dire need of a good cement rendering, but perhaps some people like houses to look and feel this way. It's nice and compact, on a 3x3 lot.

It has 3 double bedrooms and 2 small single bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, separate kitchen, dining/informal lounge, tv room, utility room with space for washing/dryer machines, a small art studio, another utility room with stairs down to the nectar making machine and nectar storage cellar with bar. On either side of the buildings there are extensive vegetable and fruit gardens and parking for one or more cars. There are also two balconies, with tables and chairs for your morning coffee

Free CC used:
Thanksgiving Set

Note: the Retro Ride car does not come with the lot, and was part of the Dr Pepper Sims 3 promotion, still available in the US. If you are not in the US, see page 3 of the link in my signature for info as to how to get the Dr Pepper promotional item(s) legitimately.


Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 151,913

Number of bedrooms: 5 or more
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.

Wow beautiful work, I love it! Don't worry about ambitions, it adds a great aspect but it brings SOO many glitches and bugs with it If you don't have mods then I guess no problem. But backup ur save before u update / install I learned that the hard way.

This is gorgeous ninotchka, I love the exterior stonework its beautifully rendered. Sadly I can't include it in my game at the moment because of Ambitions - it killed my launcher! Like CharlieSteal said - be careful.
#4 Old 7th Jun 2010 at 6:17 AM
Very cool!

No, u can't haz cheezburger

Love the brick work! Very inventive

Unlike the others I have not had any problems with Ambitions but then I am overly cautious when I do a patch or add an EP/SP.

Love your work - it is always so orginal!

Wow thanks (((guys))), what a great reception This lot is a bit rough, but I would love to see someone do a great interior job with it, I was totally stumped i.e. the bright green vine wallpaper in the bedroom lol

I have been green with envy at all the new Ambitions stuff everyone has been raving about and playing with (I still haven't got it wahhhh) but I do have the new patch which also played tricks with my launcher. It ended up being something to do with my original base game not being patched properly (?) and not having an updated EADM then having to uninstall it and then reinstall it. But even that didn't go smoothly.

I focused on this thread here to help me through, see here:

I still don't have Riverview back (even after uninstalling and reinstalling) and I am having problems installing a few lots into my game - wahhhhh....

Anyway, thanks again

Hello, Ninotchka! After patching my game and installing Ambitions I 've got your fabulous new Villa Rederme, placed it in EA's new swamp city called Twinbrook and I must admit: it simply looks gorgeous. It's so vivid and authentic with it's murals and used-looking kitchen. As to now I only experienced something comparable with Sims 2. Anyhow, I placed two new lines for the washed clothes in the garden and a new washing machine inside the house. After finishing I tried to save the game but a black blinking point appeared on the saving sign and I was "thrown" to the desktop. Trying it again, the same happened. It's really sad, because I adore your house! I really hope that you or anybody here can give me a hint what to do about this! Nevertheless, thank you very much for a wonderful house!

I couldn't possibly add anything more than what has already been said. You've put a lot of hard work into your Villa and it shows. Thank you for sharing it !

Lovely list of patches and when to use them here.

Absolutely Stunning. I love old houses, and this looks so authentic. I'm going to wait a bit to install though, I can't even get Ambitions to run yet without crapping out, but I can't wait until when I do Your lots always have the perfect touch of detail. Gorgeous.

I've been looking for a house for my sim, but got tired of the same kinds. I like this a lot due to it being unique. I haven't seen one like this before. Thanks for your time creating it.

Rambunctious behavior leads to nothing at all.

Wow, you people are too sweet. Thank you for the kind words and great feedback

Hi BrittaMA - I am absolutely unsure of what is causing your game to crash to the desktop. I did a quick search and found this:

But it seems a bit too simplistic to be the answer, I guess you might have to wait until more people have had the problem and see what they figure out. I don't even have Ambitions yet (but probably will later on today) and I am going to be very cautious installing it, based on what I've been reading lately...
