Please scroll through all the pictures to see the before and after changes of this original Pleasantview house. Maxis gave us a pretty good house here to begin with - but, every time I played it, I ended up making changes... something just wasn't right [about the original floorplan.] After several rebuilds, I finally came up with a plan I liked. I hope your sims will like it too!

Please NOTE:
REQUIRED for the Craftsman 2T Glass Door - you'll need the 1T Window Master Mesh for the set (though it is not technically used in this house!)
Get it here: Craftsman 1T Window MASTER by tBudgett @ MTS

REQUIRED for the Pinegultcher Stairs - is the script file for the stairs. Please read the download/install instructions provided by tBudgett. If you do NOT already have these stairs - you will need to download and install them. The stairs are included in the package file for this house; but the script file is not... you'll need to go get it!

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
"Colors of Order" Green Wallpaper extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY
Plain Stripes Carpet in "Seal" by Maranantah @ MTS
Dubay Blue Carpet by Mutske @ TSR
Magic Carpet 2 by Joninmobile @ MTS

NOTE: If walls are missing when you first visit the lot, exit without saving and add Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 to your DL folder before loading this house again. Sometimes I use this wall instead of the CFE cheat when building houses.

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 Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.

Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price (furnished): $74,596

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

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

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

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.
