Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello =)

I created another House especially for the new careers which came with "Ambitions". It's a House of a Detective who can live and work there and this time very simple. There is a seperate entry for the Office and the private rooms. It's a House for a single Sim, because the work of a detective is toooo secret for other

Next time i will upload more of my "Ambitions House" Series =)
Have fun!

his Lot is fully furnished as always and contains no custom content. But you will need World Adventures and the new Ambitions EP to get it work.

size: 30x19
costs furnished: 97,454 §
costs unfurnished: 38,943 §


UPDATED I edited the furniture a little bit.. removed and added things. I uploaded a neighborhood screen too, which shows where i placed the house in the new Ambitions Twinbrook. I noticed, that somewhere else the ground can be misshapen, especcially the backyard.

(I placed the ground with the new Ambitions feature, because normally there isn't a Place for a House)










Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: 97,454 §

Number of bedrooms: Studio
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Home Business

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

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

I couldn't get the shower to work, so I had to replace it. The Sims want to get in from the side which is blocked by the wall so I needed a shower where you walk straight in. Also I find that I need some way to expand the lot for space to display awards. I would also like a separate bed room for a twin bed. I might add a separate story. I thought about a basement, but I can't find a spot I like to put in the stairs. However the living area is nice, compact, easy to move around in and it is easy to use the laundry.

Any way my detective, Samantha Spade, does like her new office.

Love the house, but I'm having the same trouble. I extract the file but then it won't come up in the Sims Launcher in the download section. Very strange because I can install other lots.

Are you aware of the old detective stories about Sam Spade? I have been listening to them now because of you. I recommend them.
May I suggest someone like Richard Diamond? He was also a story detective,

Put things off for a day, next thing you know it's a hundred years later!
