The Provincetown - a Bespoke Vintage Cape Cod Plan with Garage, on a 2-Step Foundation
Vintage Cape Cod Floor Plan
...on a 2-Step Foundation.
2 bedrooms - 1 bathrooms - Carriage House garage
- for a small family - large yard - pet friendly -
~~~ Built with the Bespoke Build Set; and you will need Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 ~~~
Built from this Vintage Floor Plan.
This house is sparsely furnished with EA/Maxis furniture (Please CC-it-up once you get it in your game!). All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove and both fireplaces have smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. The telephone is in the kitchen.
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 parking for three vehicles: one in the garage, and two on the driveway.
This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included, but there is plenty of room to add what you need.
Definitely used but NOT included:
- The Bespoke Build Set MASTER file by Honeywell/MTS2 ...without this the Bespoke Build items will flash blue.
- I recommend invisifying the driveway with Sophie-David's Invisible Driveway
- You must have Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 in your game before you install this house.
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, you will have sections of wonky/crooked walls where CFE was used to enlarge the live-able attic space. This will not hurt your game, it just looks ugly. It is completely avoidable by using Numenor's Unlevel Wall.)
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
- Bespoke Build Set items by Honeywell
Lot Size: 40X20
Lot Price (furnished): $62,486
Thank you Mootilda - for the awesome Grid Adjuster 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*)
