The Siren's shelter

Once upon a time there lived a girl. She was very beautiful and her voice had a power to capture human hearts. But there was something even more special about her - she was a mermaid. Or maybe I should say that people believed she was. The girl lived in a small tower, covered in corals, in the middle of the sea. If you want to see it for yourself then don't forget your swimsuit...or a boat

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.

I couldn't wait until I had a mermaid to check out your lot on the water. I added it to Barnacle Bay and placed one of my Sims in the house. She ended up on land but took a water taxi out to her new home. Seeing the lot in-game is WOW! (as are the bubbles). The papergirl found her way to the little island home without any problems and the octopus in the cave is trying to entice my Sim into coming closer (she's not falling for it). Awesome build, amazing creativity, I love it!

ETA: I only added the Aqua Bright roof color to my mods folder, there were so many and I only wanted to add what I needed for this build. Let me know if I added the wrong color, please.

I positively squeed when I saw this uploaded. I saw this on the feedback forum and was astounded by all the beautiful details and the creativity is top notch!~ Is Island Paradise the best place to put this lot? In Greek mythology, Poseidon created the horse, I made a horse with green/blue hues, is it possible to put the horse in the cave? I havent installed the lot yet but was wondering if theres a place for him to sleep/eat in the cave?
