1 Wee Way

I decided I should start a blog with my latest houses, as my internet "provider" has gone downhill considerably. I have no service between 10:30 a.m. and about 6:30 p.m. every single day. In case you're wondering who to avoid, I have, and they really, really, really suck. Anyway, this means I have less time to attempt to jump through hoops at MTS2 and deal with their site/server issues, so I will just feature any of my new/rebuilt houses on this blog first and upload them to I still may put them on MTS2 eventually. It's just a lot of work. :P

I actually built this cottage several months ago, but I never got around to uploading it. It's built on a 1x2 lot and has 2 bedrooms, and 1 bath. The house is fully furnished and costs §42,941. I playtested a copy of the house, and everything seems to be working well.

This is a view of the right side. Don't worry, the dog is not included. ;) He was there when I was playtesting a copy of the lot.

This is a view of the attic. The walls are a bit weird and short and it's a little darker than I like, but it works fine and is weatherproof for Seasons.

And here is the main floor. The only problem I found is with the sofa/coffee table arrangement. You may have to move the coffee table out a bit for your sims to use the side of the sofa closest to the fireplace. I tried to fix this several times, but when I save and package, it seems to move back. :P So if you want to fix it, type boolprop snapobjectstogrid false into the cheat box (Ctrl + Shift + C) and move it out toward the kitchen a little. When you have it where it works for your sims, type boolprop snapobjectstogrid true into the cheat box.

Update: It was brought to my attention on MTS2 that I omitted a dining table. I remember trying to figure out where to put it, but I guess I never decided, LOL. So here is a picture where one will work. As you can see, I playtested it, and even with the coffee table moved out to allow sims to sit on the sofa, sims can still walk between the tables.

Requires: all EP's up to FreeTime. I also have Family Fun and Celebration SP's, although those are probably not required, especially if you install the house with Sims2Pack Clean Installer.
