Hey Guys , today i present to you "The Junk Yard House" my latest creations this idea came to me from slums houses made of old cardboard and newspapers i saw them while i was travailing on the desert road ,so i decided to add something new that i make a junk yard full of ''rubbish used for inventing'' and in the same time a house for beggars

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.

That would be quite realistic if it didn't sparkle all day long.

Nice work of course. By the way, where does the rusted old car come from? Is that not CC?

I really like the attention to detail you have shown Lunararc and I think this is fantastic but there are problems with the lot. I have a homeless man (Jim) living in The Junk Yard House and watching him go about his business (whether he is set to active family or not) isn't fun. Over and over, Jim will stand there and complain because he cannot get to the location on the lot that he wanted to go.

I tried visiting Jim with another family and I couldn't do anything. I couldn't visit the Jim household, I couldn't greet Jim, I couldn't rummage through the piles of junk, I couldn't place one foot onto the lot. Everytime I tried resulted in my sim complaining that he/she couldn't get to that location or do that specific task. The only way I can visit Jim is to walk around other parts of town and hope I bump into him.

So I think something needs to be done about this. Perhaps open the lot a bit more? So Sims can find their way without complaining? Perhaps place a broken, run down door at the front of the lot (just standing there without walls beside it) and set this as the front door? This would allow other sims to at least step onto the lot.

Anyone reading this, place a new sim into the lot and watch the computer take control of the sim.. it's not good. Now switch to another family and try visit this new sim... you can't step onto the lot or do anything!

I think you misunderstood. Jim is a sim I created last night, I was just using my sim as an example. The moveobjects cheats does not allow you to move sims right? Whether it does or not, it's not going to help I don't think.

How can external sims enter the lot as a guest if they can't step foot on the lot?

Was the visitor already known to the tennant of The Junk Yard House? Try visiting using a newly created sim or a sim that has never met the tennant before.

Can other people try this also?

Lunararc,

You are mixing up your how with who.

I am not here to personally attack you, I am just reporting a problem I am facing. Geez man, you need to calm down. Why are you acting like this? I am not putting your work down, I am saying great work! I didn't post here to cause trouble, I posted to get help. You are not experiencing this problem so that suggests it's probably something to do with my game.. perhaps moving the lot to a more flatter peice of land would fix it?.. I don't know, I will have to try it.

I was wrong to assume this was a global problem but really Lunararc, calm down!
