The Siren's shelter

Once upon a time there lived a girl. She was very beautiful and her voice had a power to capture human hearts. But there was something even more special about her - she was a mermaid. Or maybe I should say that people believed she was. The girl lived in a small tower, covered in corals, in the middle of the sea. If you want to see it for yourself then don't forget your swimsuit...or a boat

5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.

I havent installed the lot yet but was wondering if theres a place for him to sleep/eat in the cave?


The cave works as a decoration only when it is not underwater

Thank you again for this beautiful lot. I did put in my game in "Island Paradise" and my sim did become a mermaid and resided in your beautiful home, unfortunately she had to move though due to her expanding mer-family. I am so pleased to see that you will have a larger version coming up. Will it be able to accommodate a family?

What lightning mod. MY LORD, THAT AMBIENCE DOE! *__*
Besides your much appreciated creation... May I ask this? : what kind of beautiful lightning mod do you use/have shown in the images that create an astonishing atmosphere combined with your lot. I eagerly want to know and search after some precious, truthful, info that indirect leads me to the source of the mod it self and where to download it I desperately want to have that sought-after and longed siren ambience just as or such as your own, evidently, existent in the few tropic worlds I have spared for my exotic sims Is it to much to ask for?? *puppy eyes*/Lama --> (not good enough??)



Puns and irony aside; the dilemma and my inquiry is all real... Please answer if you so feel! I bestow you all of my gratitude!

I actually havent used any lighting mod - I just set all the lights to green-blue color. It looks the best in Island paradise.

Hi,
What exactly doesnt work for you? The lot placement? Or play-mode?
For the lot placement: Place empty new lot on water and after that place the house there.
Play mode - Make sure the beach part of the lot is set as a front. Make your sim enter the house. (He will use a boat to get there)

Hi I think that the only objects from late night are the little round lamps.

I have never played as a mermaid sim, but now I want to because your house is gorgeous! I love your attention to detail, especially how the bubbles make the house appear underwater.
