Welcome to

Designed to fit seamlessly in Don's neighborhood

Yes. Both apartments function as apartments, and share the pool. Just be sure to keep your back door locked - otherwise, nosey neighbors may just help themselves to a cup of sugar!

Please scroll through all the pictures to see everything this duplex has to offer. Each unit is fully furnished in a clean modern style, and includes 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a driveway, and a grill area in the back yard. Pets are allowed. Rent is between $1705 - $1711. Welcome Home!

This upload has 2 files - please grab both files! One file is the lot itself. The other "EXTRAS" file contains items that I either couldn't find a direct download link for you to follow, or items it just seemed easier (for both of us!) to include a copy of here.
Then, you'll also need...

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Longer Maxis Blinds by Windkeeper @ TSR
Krampft Upper Cabinets by NixNivis @ Nixed Sims.wordpress
Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS
1-Tile Ikea Desk by Huge Lunatic @ Sims2Artists
Mirrored Spiral Stairs by Anoeska @ TSR

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: 3x2
Lot Price (furnished): $1705 - $1711

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.
