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.
