Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a really fun project I built as a way to test what is possible in game without CC or Store content! That project is a large pirate ship, built as close to reality as I could with only my game items! The lot is a residential lot but does not have a lot of furniture other than the captain's quarters, but still features the basics to live in and fulfill all needs. Above deck, along with the captain's quarters, is a large storage space with an additional room inside, and below deck are the ship's cannons and a trio of jail cells in the back! I like the idea that this ship can be renovated into a full living space built around the pre-existing elements of the ship. Thing such as turning the store rooms into bedrooms, and the jail cells into reading nooks and dining spaces or whatever you want! As is however I left it with the basics of the ship.

Another fun little quirk I found is by using roofs as sails, by raising and lowering the pitch slider, it's like you're rasing and lowering the sails!

A little note about lot placement!

This lot is a self contained island and can be placed anywhere in any body of water. However, because some areas are shallower than others, you may place the lot and find that the rim of the lot has risen up (SEE IMAGES TO KNOW WHAT I MEAN) Don't panic, though, as this is a super simple fix! Just drag the terrain leveler over the raised areas from the edge and they'll drop back down. The only land you want to keep above water is the rocky island next to the boat. This allows Sims to travel on and off the boat!

I hope you all enjoy this pirate ship lot! It was amazing to see what I could do without external content and I hope you have fun placing it in your worlds! Happy Simming!

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 love the Ship and your idea to make it cc free. The Ship is very well done. It would be nice to have a functional ship like this, too - even they make a lot of problems in the game ;-). I will try the thing with the roof slider :-). Have a nice day.

Don't know how you come up with so many ideas. Might make an interesting holiday home or perhaps a museum.

Thanks

I love your builds and this ship is incredible! It's just the sails that are turned the wrong way, giving the impression it sails backwards! Is it easy to fix? I'm not good with roofs but I will try, otherwise I'll just keep them lowered

Yeah I know but those were the only roofs I could use aside from the flat angled roofs that could give the sail impression. You could try switching to those but it’s the best I could do with what I had :3

This is so clever! At first I thought it was a houseboat, so was baffled by the size. Then you mentioned the edges sometimes going really high up, and I realized you made it as a standalone island! That's a really neat idea! And I'm amazed at how you managed to get this looking so much like a ship. Beautiful!

Which is incredible, as usual! I systematically download your builds - I don't know where you get the patience for such gigantic mansions!

I love pushing the limits of what I can achieve! Our Sims deserve to live in luxury and I shall be the one to deliver it to them! :P

Something I've been doing. I understand your ship is an Island, But If you build on a barge you can put a basement in and your House boat won't look too top heavy and still have enough room to build and Travel. I like building 2 sometimes 3 basements down to make Labs and Wine Cellars with winding passages in my lots but so far have only used 1 level down on a boat.
