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

Description:
The previous tenant, known in the area as 'Fast Jake', left rather suddenly, a year or so ago. Since then, his charming little 'vacation' home has stood empty.

Landscaping would increase the investment value of the property. (So would demolition, but hey!) There may not be a lot of space inside, but the roof lookout makes a great entertaining area, and the shaded side verandah is cool for siesta time.

Basic amenities are provided, and the rent is low. There is a double bedroom, bathroom, dinette kitchen and a carpeted living room. The agent guarantees there are no counterfeit bills under the bed, and probably no corpses under the floor.

Don't worry, Fast Jake hasn't been seen around here since the bust...

Notes for Players:
- The house has been playtested briefly. New furniture is as shown. Phone, bookshelf and fire alarm are included for your lucky starting sims.
- The verandah roof was made with the CFE cheat, and cannot be altered or removed without effort.
- I used one custom terrain paint on the lot, but another one (slate pavers) has attached itself. I can't delete it without losing the rocks I painted so carefully, so you get both. Hopefully this will ensure the rocks come through correctly - there's a basegame bug that sometimes deletes terrains. Annoying, but true.

Have fun hiding out!

Ingo, you use the CFE cheat - constrainfloorelevation false. You need to be a bit careful experimenting with it, don't try it first on your favourite lot! have a look in the tutorials sections, there are plenty of pointers about how to use it. You can do a lot with CFE, but it takes practice and patience.

I love this house.

the pieces on the front and the support beams didn't work (I have nearly every expansion pack installed)

But I'm still using it and it's well made =]

I love this house. I already have four in my neighborhood, but there's always room for one more. There's plenty of room for a single Sim or a couple. Thanks for creating and sharing this wonderful little house with us.

Oh my gods, the perfect little home for my apocalypse survivors! The veranda roof will make a wonderful space for leisurely late-afternoon sentry shifts and I'm rather glad that there are probably no corpses under the floor because it's such a hassle when they try to dig themselves out and always leaves a mess.

And no CC from out-of-business sites, no EPs I don't have! This couldn't be more perfect! Thank you very much
