Vacation Cabin ~ 3B/2.5B with Fishing Pond and Multi-Level Viewing Decks
Updated: 10th May 2021 at 11:22 PM
...Mom wants a vacation! Happy Mother's Day .
This is an uneven, SLOPED Lot
3 bedrooms - 2.5 bathrooms - vacation property
- fishing pond - pet friendly - with beautiful commanding views -
~~~ minimal CC ~~~
You can put this lot in any hood of course, but I built it to go in the Three Lakes Vacation Hood.
Please enjoy touring the rest of this design by scrolling through the above pictures. I hope 'Mom' will enjoy her vacation
This house is lightly furnished, and sparsely decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove and grill have smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. There is a telephone on the main level. Because of the CFE'd roof - the upstairs may not be weatherproof? My sim didn't seam to mind; though we didn't stay long enough to experience snow.
This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.
There is no parking; a taxi will deliver you to the door (if used in a Vacation hood.)
This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them, the tub is accessible for dog washing.
Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)
You will also need to get:
--- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2
Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button below to see how I did it
NOTE: If you decide NOT to use Numenor's Wall #90, the CFE'd roof line might be broken.
If you don't already have it, go get and install the Scriptorium by Numenor - it makes it super easy to install Modular Stairs, Fireplaces, Custom Walls, Lights/lamp mods (You can read about the what/why/how of it on his post) To sum up - all these items use scripts to work properly in the game - and that means they have an extra .txt file along with the regular .package file. And, you don't just dump it all into your Downloads folder. Once you install the Scriptorium, it will install all the other stuff for you.
Then - go get 90_UnleveledWall also by Numenor. (This wall is amazing!) Numenor cautions on his post that some people have experienced problems with this wall; but, I've used it since he first released it in 2006, and I have NEVER had a problem with it - I've used it through various EP/SP disc installs on XP, Vista, 7, 8, and now on Windows 10 with UC.
Unpack the file and find two items:
In your DL folder, find the Scriptorium shortcut labeled "Scriptorium_Walls-Fences-Arches" and drop the .txt file into it.
(If you open the shortcut, you'll see it's path goes to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Double Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts\Scriptorium_Walls-Fences-Arches - if you have the UC)
Numenor advises that you put BOTH the .txt and the .package in the shortcut folder. However, my 90_UnleveledWall.package file is in my documents/Downloads/zHacks folder - always has been, and, like I said, I've never had a problem with it.
Custom Content Included
- Bottomfull Floor - Cherry Wood by Jonesi @ MTS2 (I can't find an active link, but the floor is included in the packaged file. This floor is what keeps the underside of the CFE'd roof from breaking into shredded diamond bits.)
- Roof Floor in BG-shadow by Guardgain @ MTS2
- Transparent Floor by Frillen @ MTS2
- Metro Window Set by Tiggy027 @ MTS2
- Room with a View Build Set by Tinkle (@BPS) hosted at Mediafire now
Lot Size: 2X2 SLOPED lot
Lot Price (furnished): $63,020
Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Grid Adjuster and Lot Adjuster tools - both were used to make this lot.
Standard mods I use that are not necessary, nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
NOTE: Sweet Down Low Tweaked + sometimes causes pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights to 'jump' out of place when you first install a lot. You can click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)
