A lighthouse with a beach where the sims can have a good time or climb to the top for a great view.
It works fine and the sims like it!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

This is great! But I have to ask if there are any hacks or object recolors because they just messed up my game so I had to reinstall it.

Simple and realistic... Is there a real place like that? The landscape is beautifully crafted.

iambob....
Sorry for that but it works fine for me.
And, there is additional textures in it and yes, I think you must have University to use it, because I have it.....
I really don't know what a "hack" is? What is it?

iambob,

You can get the "clean installer" to scan for customised content from a sim2pack file and skip them before the lot installation.


Lisen801,

A hack is a modified/custom-made file (can be an object) with functions not provided by the default game or EP. The good thing about it is you can have more controls over the sims. The bad news is they can mess up your games when improperly used, especially when mixed with other conflicting hacks. Since they're mostly not named properly for human reading as a file by the silly Maxis or the creator/modifier(s) and it's hard to find them out manually using window explorer because of that. And so this is why people are concerned if a lot sim2pack has any hack or what. With "clean installer", one can scan by reading info from the file rather than just the file name and skip any potentially harmful (to the system of that user) customised content from being installed to avoid the devastating effect of misusing hacks.

Since not all players know or are aware of that, hacks can be accidentally packed into sim2pack files. Thus, it's often a good practice to scan for yourself with Clean Installer before any installation unless specified. Otherwise, blame your own self.

Thx niol...

I have now installed SimsCleanInstaller and checking my files before uploading. I don't use hacked objects (I think?) and will remove these if I find them in Clean Installer...

Hi Lisen801,

I still think MTS2_70116_Lisen801_Wittrafyr.jpg is still the best shot to show as the thread thumbnail among the three, but I can be wrong.

Hello...
1. The water is just a texture and only for decoration
2. It's not swimmable
But it's easy to make a swimmable water. See my residential lot "Beachhouse"...
