Gwrych March Set Two: 6 COTTAGE HOUSES (13 Downloads)

General Gwrych March Notes
Welcome BACK to Gwrych! There are 27 lots divided between 4 Posts. Post 1 has 6 Residential Lots. Post 2 has 6 Residential Cottages (13 downloads). Post 3 has 2 Hotel Lots. Post 4 has 6 Community Lots.The lots in this collection are mainly EDITED versions of lots from the "A Small Kingdom" collection. They have been revised with MEDIEVAL decor using ALL EPs and STUFF PACKS as well as User Created Custom Content. Also, I've included several alternative versions of stoves, trash cans, dishwashers, trash compactors and sewing machines in these lots. Each FURNISHED residential lot in this collection has an invisible smoke alarm and I've hidden the burglar alarm behind furniture or inside barrels. So, please be sure to play test your lots to discover where everything is and what everything does. Each lot should contain all your Sims need to live!

While the Gwrych Kingdom and Duchy lots were moreso designed for the upper nobility, the Gwrych March and Barony are designed for the lower nobility and the lower classes. The buildings will be a bit more worn and fitting to the lower classes. Even within the hovel community, there is a ranking system for the houses.

There is no "separate" objects download zip for the Gwrych "March" Collection (as I included in the original Gwrych post of 45 lots). All objects are included in the lots. The zip folders also contain Maxis/EA recolors that do not automatically zip with the lots. Be sure to include add these objects to your Downloads folder. I also encourage allowing the objects you download in this collection to override older versions of the objects shared in the original Gwrych post (45 lots), as some of the objects used have been updated.

The lots in the Gwrych March were designed for my "GWRYCH NEIGHBORHOOD MAP 4" found in Post 2 HERE. Of course you are free to use another Neighborhood Map, but keep in mind that the Beach Lots (in the upcoming Barony set shares this map) may not show properly in neighborhoods they were not designed for. Please keep this in mind. See the following image to set-up you Gwrych March Neighborhood.
NOTE: The above image is also in the last zip of each set in this collection for your convenience.

Lastly...for those of you who cannot download this collection for one reason or another, please understand that these lots are also represented in the "A SMALL MODERN KINGDOM" collection found HERE. However, "A Small Kingdom" lots are decorated using Maxis/EA only furnishings and objects and is not decorated using "Medieval" objects. Therefore it is moreso a "Modern Meets Medieval" collection.

Please enjoy the downloads and happy Simming!

The furnished version of March 2x2 Cottage does not have interior floors, but is decorated using straw and dirt terrain. If you are redecorating, you may need to turn "Move_objects on" to place certain items or to decorate the floors with the straw "floor" tile already included in the lot for the ceilings. I added hay and wood floor tiles in the unfurnished version to make decorating a bit easier. I have also included an invisible sewing machine "in" the table. Simply click on the end of the table nearest to the wall to use the sewing option.

The TENT version has 2 tents outdoors and the GYPSY CARAVAN version has 1 Gypsy Tent outside.

- "IMPORTANT NOTES" about March 2x2 Cottage #4!

1. If you are downloading the TENT VERSION, YOU MUST download 3 additional objects and add them to your "Downloads" Folder for Cottage 4 (Tent Version) to show properly.
* CLICK HERE for the Parsimonious "Round Tent Original" MESH (the 4th download in the left column)
* CLICK HERE for sunni9676's "GREEN SUEDE" and "LEATHER" Tent Recolours
* CLICK HERE for Targa's Ascension Version 2: 1-tile Teleporting Stairs

I purposefully left Targa's Ascension stairs visible so you will see exactly where it is. If you click on the lower level circle using the recolour tool, you can make the stairs invisible. It serves as a "secret" entry to the Wizard-like 'man-cave' in the house. To get to the Wizard's Parlour, simply click on the floor in the room and tell your wizard to go there. To prevent going over the maximum uploading size for MTS and to avoid sacrificing my vision for this lot, I removed the above mentioned files from the downloads folder before zipping the package. You do not have to place the objects on the lot, you just need to make sure you have them in the game before entering the lot or the tents won't show at all and you will find some Maxis/EA object in their place.

2. If you are downloading the GYPSY CARAVAN VERSION, YOU will need the following 2 additional downloads for the lot to show properly.
* CLICK HERE for HEXAMETER's "Night Life (NL) and Bon Voyage (BV) Gypsy Caravans
* CLICK HERE for Targa's Ascension Version 2: 1-tile Teleporting Stairs

I purposefully left Targa's Ascension stairs visible so you will see exactly where it is. If you click on the lower level circle using the recolour tool, you can make the stairs invisible.It serves as a "secret" entry to the Wizard-like 'man-cave' in the house. To get to the Wizard's Parlour, simply click on the floor in the room and tell your wizard to go there.

3. There is an invisible door to a "secret room" near the main entrance door to enter the "Witches Parlour" (just as there are secret stairs to the "Wizard's Den"). There is also an invisible door in the basement leading to the "Wizard's Den". Be sure to look the doors to visitors if you wish for your Simmies to have privacy in their rooms. I just want you to be aware of this and not wonder why I didn't place a door to that room.

4. I used several of the in-game Maxis/EA "magic" items to decorate this lot. If your Sims are not "witches/wizards" they will not be able to adequately use the cauldron or podium until they befriend a witch and are invited to join them or you use a potion to make them so. However, the interactions when your Simmies try to use the podium or cauldron without having the skills are quite interesting if you have never seen them. They won't "harm" your Sims in a major way. There is an invisible mirror sharing the podium slot in both the wizard and witches secret rooms. This allows your Sim to practice speech until they acquire the necessary skills to actually use the podium. Simply click around the podium until you see the mirror options.

5. There is an invisible sewing machine on the Gypsy TENT lot near the telescope outside. Simply click on the table with the candle to utilize the sewing machine.

6. I also used the "Resurrection" Career Reward object in the Wizard's Den. You will notice that HP's "Scroll" Telephone "appears to be in the phone slot. However, it simply is floating on an invisible barrel at adjustable height to conceal the modern resurrection phone. You can access both phones (the Scroll phone by clickin on the scroll as usual and the Resurrection phone by clicking on the leg of the table holding the phone). Although, do use caution when clicking on the resurrection phone when you don't know any Sim who has died.

7. For some strange reason beyond my understanding, you must turn "move-objects on" if you want to change out the Maxis "Connnecting" Stairs. The Maxis Staircases do not require this.

Please read this if you are having problems AFTER entering a lot or are receiving an error message about "counters without doors". Otherwise, view this as general information about Gwrych lots.

Apparently, you CANNOT use "move objects on" to place objects on the back of a counter where there is a kitchen sink. In some of my Gwrych lots, I found an error with placing sponges in the back corner of counters that have kitchen sinks. Initially, I thought it was that sponges could not be placed on counters where there is a kitchen sink, but have since discovered that no objects should share the counter tile when there is a sink in the counter. If you have found you were receiving a counter error when entering a Gwrych lot with a Sim...there may be objects sharing kitchen sink counter space (like the hour glass, sponge, plant or jars) that I overlooked in the process of fixing this problem. Please understand that this may NOT be the issue if your game is constantly crashing. It is just one possible solution I offer. Testing the Gwrych lots on different computers has resulted in ALL Gwrych lots being playable from this end. As errors are encountered during game play, solutions are also sought. If you are only having problems with a few lots, this may (or may not) be part of the problem. To fix this problem, all you need to do is to load a new version of the lot, enter it WITHOUT A SIM and delete any objects that are sharing a counter with a kitchen sink. Also, if you notice there seems to be no sink in an area where there should be one (especially bathrooms and kitchens)...try adding a sink to the empty counters. If you cannot place a sink on a counter, that counter should be deleted and put back in the game before adding a sink. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Remember, enter the lot WITHOUT a Sim to make changes.

Adding clutter to the back slots of counters that do not have a kitchen sink appear to work just fine. So clutter away on counters without sinks!

This is absolutely amazing, must have taken you ages to create all of these! I love this style of lots so much, thanks for sharing... I'm gonna be very busy downloading! :-)

You could really fill a whole world with this great houses

Thanks for the compliments all!

Yeah. That's been the running joke with my hubby and I.

Time? Yes. As I am determined to "complete" this project in it's entirety, I find that my interest level wanes at times and at other times the energy is non-stop. Such is life!My bonus will be the final lots because they are more whimsical and will be uploaded 1 at a time. Personally, I would have to download the lots a few at a time and place them in my game. I'd find all these lots SO overwhelming! Enjoy the downloads.

That's the idea! So grab the Gwrych Maps (see the 45 Gwrych Lots download under my profile) and make a world if you haven't already done so. The idea is I build them and you download them add a few personal touches (or not) and play Sims Medieval style!

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

Cool lots. I'm thankful you decided to included unfurnished versions, as almost ALL of this custom content I already have. Thank you!

PS- do you do recolors? I need more medieval style bedding!

Glad you found what you are looking for with the lots. Yeah...I know some people have their downloads organized in subfolders and such. I went back and forth over how to upload the lots best. But, for my sanity and times sake, I just did it the standard way!

I don't do recolors...but if you are looking for more COLORFUL MEDIEVALISH BEDDING here are a few links:

The Calalily downloads are some of my favorites because they have that "embroidered look":
Grab a few GRUNDGY beddings here!

Grab a few embroidered wooly beddings here!
(There is a page 2 to this set!)

Note: Not ALL of these are quite period appropriate, but I downloaded the ones that did not have large decor images and ones that looked "wool-like" or embroidered".

Grab a few sets of Royalty Medieval Bedding HERE!
(Paysite but the bedding and pillows are free). I found this thanks to Walter at Black Pearl!

HERE at MTS...
Tig's Elven Bedding!

Jacobean Bedding
Not very wooly and moreso of the Jacobite era, but very Medieval in looks IMHO.

Grundgy Second Hand Bedspread!
The bedding can be found in the "Second Hand Bedroom Set" Download Zip.

Darter Medieval Bedset!


Post 6 of Comments for MidSimmer Night's Dream Bedding
This is the standard bedding that I used with fur and straw!


and Last but not least...
Jeni at TSR Medieval Bedding Set!
I'm only mentioning this one because it is a FREE download if you log-in.

Take care.

I love the everliving out of you for making so many of these lots! Do you think you could perhaps do a version that doesn't require the stuff packs? i have all EPs, but I've n ever bothered with stuff packs for lack of interest.

Thank you so much!

I've decided to create the remaining Gwrych sets without Stuff Packs as most of what I need for medieval building can be found in the EPs. What this means is since I haven't started the Gwrych Barony yet...there will be almost every type of building you need because the Barony set includes a Castle, Manor House, Cottages and I will add a few hovels to make it more complete. Then, the set after that will have a jail, courts, inns, brothels, etc. I will add another Jousting Field to that collection as well. Basically, it should be enough to build an entire kingdom that is fully decorated without any STUFF PACKS. I realized that I really don't "need" the Stuff Packs for my "Gwrych" project. I was stuck in that mindset because I stopped working on my "Simptopia Project" (which I need the Stuff Packs for) to finish the Gwrych Project this year. Going from modern building with limited Custom Content to Medieval building with tons of Custom Content takes a shift in mindset.

So, you shall have your wish. It will take a small bit of reorganization/replanning, but the remainder of the Gwrych Collection (about 36 lots total + plus a few original lots by Lauralaima and myself ) will only use EPs and no Stuff packs!

Awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing them!

ETA: Before I forget, could I make a small request of you? My pirate Sims would love some beach lots to live on if you wouldn't mind...!

Ah! The Pirate Sims lots will definitely be on a Shopping District "Mystic" Island and I plan to make most of the lots on that island beach lots. Those lots will be my last Gwrych creations and are just ideas right now...and of course the PIRATES must live on a beach lot...that is a must!

Take care. I'm off to finish up a beach lot just for playing in over the next few days of my Sim Creation Vacation!

Sorry I took a few days to respond. I've been away from Simming and otherwise preoccupied!

MTS is a gigantic site with lots of useful information. I know it can be overwhelming, so I will direct as much as I can to what you need and what you need to do with a link to get you started.

Go here:
Downloading Tips
Don't let the title at the top of the page throw you off. It's all meant in good fun. There is a super sense of humour around here. I know you are probably excited about getting started, but you must know the basics first and game play will be so much better once you do. So, relax...get a healthy snack and take your time and go through the information there.

Also...there is a Tab on every download called "Install Instructions" (scroll down and look below the comments...There is an Overview Tab, a Download Tab, and finally The Install Instructions Tab). The "Install Instructions" Tab lets you know which files go where.

I will also suggest you get to know the site by CLICKING around.

Hopefully this little bit helps.

Why is this not featured? Or even picked?!! This is the most painstakingly done era recreation work I've seen in a very long time. I would be in tears after just trying to build ONE of these lots and yet you have created an entire kingdom!

I bow before your saint-like patience and artistic flair!

Aww I just needed to get two more games so I could use this upload.... Well, thanks for sharing anyway. I bet this broke your back a lot! I hate building lots because they take to much time.... But it's fun in a way! (if that made sence)

Thanks Rhaevyn. I appreciate the compliments! Do enjoy the downloads.



Oh! Sorry you can't download the lots yet. Hopefully soon?

The overall Gwrych Project got to a point of repetition for me, but (unbelievably) there is still more to come. I'm just trying to build up the desire to complete the versions that require fewer EPs, so I can finish the "newer" Gwrych lots. It will take a bit of time, but hopefully I will get around to it soon.

At any rate...if and when you can get the lots, do enjoy them!

This is TRULY amazing! I just adore your lots, the attention to detail is incredible, and I just love it to pieces! I'm working on making a Medieval neighborhood to play in with your buildings as the center! So great! Thank you for sharing! ^.^
