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



Floorplan, exterior and interior of the Siren's shelter







Basic information
Lot price and size:
Furnished price72 558
Unfurnished price24 426
Lot size30x30

Lot placement:Place the lot in the middle of water of any kind (sea, lake...). Don't place the lot on land.
Roof issues:If there is a hole in the roof, go to - build mode - roof section - use the delete all roofs feature and then undo the action
Lot front:Please always make sure that the beach part of the lot is set as a front
Performance issues:If you are experiencing performance issues, delete all fog emitters

Requirements

You will need all expansion packs up to Island paradise.
You will need a roof recolour by Amarysauce: http://modthesims.info/d/529195 - shade AquaBright

Additional credits

I would like to send my thanks to all people from the Creator Feedback Forum who helped me to build this lot - every word of support means a lot to me A special thanks belongs to Amarysauce for her beautiful set of roof recolours.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
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.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

But, I was wrong xD

I would place it in the Neighborhood that comes with Island Paradise Expansion Pack where the mermaid sims would normally live. Hope this helps :-)

Absolutely beautiful! Reminds me of something out of the 'Myst' series. Do you have effects generators hidden around there making all those bubbles?

wow...just wow
No one is forcing you to download this.
I am really getting tired of this kind of behavior over the internet...If you don't like something you should just ignore it and look for something that you like...

Yep there are fogemitters with the code "bubbles" all over the place

Ah! Didn't know you could use fog emitters like that. Useful information, thanks!

EDIT: P.S. there are thousands of us using this site who are willing to show appreciation for the efforts of creators and, if criticism is appropriate, to offer it in a polite, friendly and constructive way. Just thought that needed saying.
