Hello everyone! Welcome to my first Mod the Sims creation... a small, quirky Japanese-style home called Dragon's Breath! Old Simmish legend says an old monk used to call this place home. Though the lot has been much improved upon since then, his grave still stands in the corner of the lot, under lush bamboo trees. Sometimes strange stuff happens, but most sims find living in such a beautiful and enchanting house totally worth it. After all, this house come complete with beautiful furnishings, stunning decorations, and mesmerizing koi ponds. There's even a small, open-air training area complete with board breaker and training dummy. Around the back of the house lies a peaceful covered walkway, perfect for meditating or just enjoying a sunny afternoon. The bedrooms upstairs are large, spacious, and beautifully decorated with ornate vases and bonsai trees. Each bedroom is attached to its own full bathroom. This is the perfect lot for sims who love the outdoors, enjoy fishing, or are dedicated to learning the ancient art of sim fu.

The entire thing is custom content free! yay! Please Enjoy! This house was a lot of fun to make - even though it was a little challenging! If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to ask. I'd love to hear your opinions.

I have one issue with this lot. It takes me at least 3 minutes to load buy/build mode. It doesn't do it with any other lots that I have downloaded. Just yours. Its a brilliant lot, but it takes forever to load. I am well above the system requirements for this lot, and I don't have ANY packages. Only ea store content and a few houses. I'm patched all the way up and I have ambitions. So I don't know what it is . . . I like the lot, but its just a real pain to go in and out of buy/build mode and it takes ages to load all the items in the house when i leave it for w/e reason.

yeah I'm sorry about that. it may be the buydebug decorations I placed in there slowing it down. you could try getting rid of those. or, it may be the invisible buydebug lights. or, if you have found the secret about this lot *evil cackle* you could try erasing that. It probably slows it down a little :/. (hint : its down there!)

the dragon fountain thing? THAT WAS A FREAKING PAIN. ok. here's how to do it. be warned though, you can't ctrl-z it so you HAVE to get it right. build a wall. and a pond. don't put a roof on yet or you'll screw it up. turn moveobjects on and find the fountain (i believe it's under statues....pretty much at the bottom) then place it right so that only the vertical part sticks out of the water. then, turn constrainfloorelevation off and use the level terrain tool to bring the ground under the pond JUST over the bottom of the fountain. be careful! - if you choose to high a point to level the pond to, it will no longer be a pond. if you choose to low a point, you will still see the base of the fountain. its ok if a few bits of the fountain's base stick out- its kinda hard to get it right. just do what any good house builder does and --- cover it up with rocks! then, put rocks all along the back of the fountain to make it look like its comming out of the wall. slick, right? then just do the same on the other side (if you want to) add some fancy-shmancy lily pads and fish (you'll need testingcheatsenabled true and buydebug to get the fish spawners) and youre all set. oh... but wait... if the wall between the fountains is screwed up by constrainfloorelevation false... dont worry. just go to the next floor and use the level terrain tool to flatten it out again. then make sure you turn constrainfloorelevation back to true so you don't accidentally mess anything else up. And make sure you pretty much do the fountain thing first. constriainfloorelevation false can really really mess EVERYTHING up.

Thanks! I thought I may have perhaps gone a little overboard with the plants and shiny ponds and whatnot -shifty eyes- but i guess everyone likes it so its all good! ^-^ Still working on another lot so keep your eyes peeled!
