Breaking Waves - Foundations Contest Round 3 - No CC!
Uploaded 22nd Aug 2010 at 3:57 AM · Updated 26th Oct 2012 at 10:21 AM by missroxor
This house uses a technique called acrostacking to make the fish in the aquarium float at different heights. I've been told acro-stacking no longer works (was broken by one of the patches) so if you DL this house now you will probably be dissapointed with the aquarium There is a work-around though...Whiterider's shiftable fog emitter does stay floating. I hope to get around to updating soon but in the mean time you can do it yourself by DLing that and just copying the codes I've already typed into the fog emitters into your new ones (ctrl, shift, click to type in a new code).
Breaking Waves is the family home of Maria and Stefan Lebowitz and their young son, Jeremy. Maria is a local styllist while Stefan is Sunset Valley's resident marine biologist. When they moved to Sunset Valley back when they were a young, newly married couple they set about building their dream home. Their tastes differed slightly but they agreed that their dream home would be modern, but comfortable. Maria preferred the more classical and elegant looks so when Stefan begged for an oceanic theme Maria shuddered at the thought of tacky dolphin wallpaper and bright coral colours everywhere. Nine long years and many arguements later the pair finally complete their dream home; 'Breaking Waves'. It has a maritime theme throughout to suit Stefan but still remains stylish and elegant (for the most part) to suit Maria.

Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
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.

Please do not claim my work as your own. Please do not re-upload anywhere.
These days I mainly only build for competitions which means a lot of my stuff will be third party CC-free but will use every EP/SP I own and will usually contain store content. I try to sanitize each build before I upload here to minimise the pay store stuff but sometimes the odd prettyful store item is worth the hit to my download count. :D
