Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Greetings, Simmers!

I have long been a fan of Hollywood's "Golden Age" and wanted to create something that would exemplify the over-the-top lifestyle of the celebrities of the 30's and 40's. I think I have accomplished that here. I hope that you and your sim- Errol Flynn, Gary Cooper or Rita Hayworth's will enjoy this house!

The stuff you will need for this house to show properly: These CC items are NOT included

A HUGE thank you to these wonderful creators!

From our Brilliant HugeLunatic: S3-2 Puddle Curtains:

Shaundak 21 created 1 and 2 tile versions of HugeLunatic's Puddle Curtains available here:
(they require HugeLunatic's original mesh and will accept all of the recolors)

The "Regal Expanded Cabinet" by Adele available here at MTS :

"Architectural Element" by Sim Architect available here at MTS (the single story square column):

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

This is stunning, simply stunning. I love everything about it. I considered the download would really tax my folder, but discovered that most of the cc is already in my game. Thank you for a completely lovely deco creation. Kudos Red Sonja, Kudos!

Wowsers! This is really the cat's pyjamas, Lisa. At first I didn't want to DL another house but after seeing your great walls n' floors for this project I couldn't resist. And the Sim painting of the "20th Century Limited" locomotive was the icing on the cake. Many thanks.
