This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
"In the bleak mid-winter,
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter,
Long ago.”

by C. Rossetti

- Lot size is 3X4
- Hack-free (checked via Clean Installer)
- Unfurnished because, well, it’s in ruins
- For best results, install with the Sims2Pack Clean Installer, found here:

Custom Content NOT Included:
- NNNNatali’s winter recolors of the Maxis baytree, found here:
- NNNNatali’s winter recolor of the Maxis rosebush and hibiscus, found here:

*NOTE: The lot has been upload without NNNNatali’s exquisite tree and bush recolors. Instead I have left the Maxis originals in place, so just download her recolors and apply them as I have in the pictures provided. (I found that with her recolors, the lot’s size only increases by 10kb, so I highly recommend them.)

Custom Content Included:
-Custom wallpaper, terrain and tiles by V1ND1CARE

* Please DO NOT upload this lot, or any of my other works, to the Exchange and/or any paysites without my consent.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install.

It's beautiful and so unlike most of the other lots on this site. You make such interesting, fantasy-like lots that are just so appealing. I can't get enough of it frankly, you just don't see lots like this everyday. Thank you very much.

I missed this creation for some reason, just today I've met this dream. The ruins and the white cold weather enchanted me. Thank you V1ND1CARE, your creativity and talent are gifts for the community! Kiss and ciao.
