Brooklyn Townhouse (For Boroughsburg)

My small contribution to the "Let's Build Boroughsburg" project (the custom world created by jje1000, link here ) - an amazingly raw and gritty-flavored urban decay neighborhood, which has only a minimal number of actual residential lots, so we who play it, are working on sharing as much as we can with each other. This lot is based on the typical brownstones of Brooklyn Heights, which is a more upscale environment than Boroughsburg, so maybe too flashy here, but I tried my best to tone it down a bit to Boroughsburg. But of course, it can be placed into any other urban Americana environment.

I used no CC, no Stuff Packs, and not a single piece of Store items, and it requires only 5 EPs: WA, LN, AMB, UL and IP - these are the only five EPs that are needed for Boroughsburg.



If you ever watched the TV show series Elementary (the modern American New York version of Sherlock Holmes) you will find the interior furnishing familiar: the room arrangements and the interiors are heavily based on those that can be seen in the show, since, according to the lore of Elementary, Mr. Holmes lives in Brooklyn Heights in a brownstone owned by his father.





This townhouse is not an apartment building, it is owned by one household from head to toe; has 5 floors altogether: the lowest, "garden level" floor has the kitchen with dining, two storage rooms and an exit to the tiny back garden. The second, "main" floor is entirely a living room area with a strong "investigating" vibe. The third floor has two furnished bedrooms with two bathrooms. The fourth floor is also a bedroom/bathroom floor but it's unfurnished currently. The fifth, "attic" floor is unplayable, decoration only. - The lot ground is flat around the edges!

Boroughsburg has several 15 x 25 size residential lots, this lot should fit on any of them.

Playtested! Necessary EPs: World Adventures, Late Night, Ambitions, University Life and Island Paradise. However I must warn you that it's possible I used Create-a-Style patterns on the objects from other EPs (in CASt, I can't say which pattern belongs to which EP, and I also have GEN, SHT, and Seasons).


Lot Size: 15x25
Lot Price (furnished): 116,713
Lot Price (unfurnished): 77,516

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 have been in real life Brooklyn brownstones (what NYC calls them) and you have really captured their essence.

I love your buildings sooo much. It's such a shame that I'm not using TS3.

I almost feel like recreating some of your lots in TS2...

Did I really say that?
- Well, at least yesterday is behind us now.

Your Blade Runner Street is one of my favorite downloadable MTS lots, and you know what? I try to build something like that for months in TS3, just not with a neon cyberpunk vibe but with an everyday contemporary Tokyo city alley flavor - and I can't do it. I'm close to give it up, so, to be short: I have much to learn from you!

This warms my heart!
I'm sure you can do it, just don't give up. I'm really curious on what you'll come up with!
