Requires Nightlife, OfB, and Seasons.
Custom content required: Invisible Driveway by roddyaleixo

Bay Tree Drive
is a couple of starters and other small houses with gardens (or rather, space for gardens-to-be in most cases). They're built with both Seasons and a bit of city planning in mind: just like Backdoor Lane, all houses are based on the same templates (trees, driveways, pavement) and will make a well-formed alley when put next to each other.

Common features:
- Sideways driveways: realistic looking (to me) and space saving. Tested, found to work reliably in-game and won't block any carpools (not even on a 1-tile wide lot).
- Pretty trees in front, along with enough public space for visitor maintenance / yard sales / private rubbish dump / regular driveways in case you like those better
- Fenced-off gardens with gates: I've grown very fond of those as a gathering point for visitors (no chasing them across the lot while they're hiking from front door to back door). Also prevents kicking of trashcans, stealing of gnomes, and other forms of harrassment.
- Less minimalistic kitchens: I tried to provide some more space now that there's officially clutter (and juicers)
- The usual minimum equipment: lights in all furnished rooms, toilet, shower or tub, fridge, kitchen sink, trashcan, phone, burglar alarm, smoke detector, bookshelf, at least one double bed and seating for two. Compost bin too in most houses.

  • 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. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
