Gwrych Barony Shacks

This download includes two separate shacks for your poor Medieval Sims.

Lot Information: (For BOTH Shacks)
Both lots are a bit ragged (in large part to the "Demolition Set" by guatla and the 3x6 roof sets created upon request by Ermelind). There are a few holes in the walls that truly will give you that feeling of living the "not so great" life, but none-the-less - home!

Both houses:
- are on a 1x1 Lot
- have a one room, opened living floor plan
- sleeps 2 Sims (Two Single Floor Mattresses)
-have a small attached outhouse with (1 barrel shower and 1 bucket toilet)

Shack 1 has fewer creature comforts, including an outdoor campfire. However, Shack 2 includes a small garden, a couple of hens, a stack of books, a scroll telephone and the crystal ball computer.

Yay! More Gwrych stuffs!

Is there a layout map for the Barony lots, by any chance?

Thank you ange1face20 and allison731.

After the upcoming Parson's Retreat, these are the last of the "residential" lots" I will be creating for Gwrych (pending no other inspiration). I especially like the look of "Shack 1". It has a unique sort of character. Both lots both so very small thanks to the use of the 6x3 roofs by Ermelind, I was able to get that "authentic" look I wanted.

rugratOne, Glad you like !
I do have a "working" layout map in my journal. The left half of the map is filled with Gwrych March lots and the upper right side of the map is for the Barony. The lower right is what remains to be created of Gwrych. But I shall provide you a direct link:

As for placement of these two shacks. They were not originally a part of my Gwrych collection. But once Ermelind agreed to create the roofs, I decided to build them. They are so small you can place them anywhere in Gwrych for those Medieval Simmers who are not really high in the serfdom or beyond dirt poor.

Enjoy the downloads all! I'm off to add the finishing touches to my "Italian" inspired Veronaville Dream House Collection. A bit of Base Game MADNESS for a change! But, I need a Cypress tree! So...I'm off to it. I know of 2 here at MTS.

Thank you Saturnfly. I've been doing it so long now, I'm starting to feel like somewhat of an expert at it!

BTW - You are not so bad yourself as far as lot creations go, Eh?

Take care and thanks again for the compliment!

Stephsim, you have made our sims time travelers! This looks so authentic and at the same time artistic. Putting together just the right custom content is a monumental task and you have done it flawlessly!

Thanks tricia!

It has gotten easier with time as far as "medieval" CC goes. I have "oodles" of "Medieval" CC from every imaginable Sims 2 site known to Cyber World. But, I only use a select few things to build with.

Sometimes when you watch the Sims do things in the lots, it is indeed like seeing bits of the least how I imagine it to be!

Thanks again for the compliment and see you around MTS!

I have been trying to download several of your Gwyych lots, but not of them will install! When I try to install them I just get a message saying something about a corrupt file. Help, please?

When you get a "corrupt file" message, it tends to be because the download was incomplete or it did not download properly. This happens for a variety of reasons to include site glitches, to problematic OS settings being enabled or disabled, to the use of ineffective download managing programs, to download errors.

My only direct advice in this case is to download one thing at a time (waiting until the download completely finishes), not to multitask when downloading (especially if your computer cannot handle it for some reason) or to delete your browsing history and simply try again later. Let me know if you continue to have issues.

I downloaded a couple of the lots, including the ones in this thread and it all worked fine and download time was good as well. But, I'll continue to check a few of my Gwrych downloads from time to time throughout the day to see if I experience the same thing. Strange things like this do happen from time to time, but hopefully, you will be able to get the downloads you desire soon.

I was able to download "Shack #1". "Shack #2", however... doesn't seem to work. When I click on the download file, it takes me to a new page with the text simply reading off: "No input file specified." Can this be fixed, or no? :/

I had no problems with either downloading or installing both lots.
But your lots are great, Steph! I have a few very poor peasants who launched into the new world without a farthing to their name. At least they will now have a humble dwelling in which to live!

Did you get the files yet? I assure you the files are there. I just downloaded them and put them in my game (because I needed specific files from them). The download links are working. All I can do is suggest trying again later.

Glad the downloads are working for you. Poor peasants. I suspect these humble dwellings will be preferred to sleeping out in open air! Do enjoy the lots.
