Twilight: Bella Swan's House (base game)
I had a few requests on Mod The Sims to build a base game compatible version of Bella Swan's House, so I thought I'd give it a try. It should have been easy, but I have been working on it for about 3 weeks. I first started using a laptop with the base game, but it was just too slow to build stuff on. Then, I tried AnyGameStarter again, but it only wanted to work part of the time, and so it was very frustrating. Finally, I remembered that I had another computer I could use with just the base game. Then, I had trouble with some of the custom content either crashing the game or not showing up in the base game, so I decided to keep it simple and use less stuff.
So, this is the 3rd base game version I've built, but it now seems to work. I'm fairly satisfied, even though it's not everything I'd hoped it would be.
These first 2 pictures of the exterior were taken from the base game, just to show how it actually looks with no expansions.
The rest of the pictures of the interior were taken with all the expansions installed while I was testing the lot. This is the living room looking into the dining room.
This is the kitchen. The clutter is mostly from Frillen's 229 ingame Maxis objects.
Bella's bedroom. I had a lot of fun with Buggybooz's glory garland and SilentLucidity's angled OMSPs.
Here's another view of Bella's room.
The main floor plan.
The upstairs floor plan.
If you have Nightlife installed, you can use the "moveobjects on" cheat to add a driveway extension piece as shown. I used an extension instead of an actual driveway because the space it needs to go in is too close to the right edge of the lot. You will then want to use an invisible recolor such as the one by roddyaleixo. That will allow you to park a truck for Bella there if you want. Dr. Pixel has a 1950 Ford pickup that works well.
Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: §99,656

I used a roof recolor by Neveah223 in my pictures. It doesn't package with the house, so I will include it as a separate download here.
