  • 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.

Sweet, dude! Totally awesome! (Yay, first post!)

You should make more. You're good at this.

Don't hate me for my negative personality... It's in the blood.

Thanks for another nice house. Your houses occupy an exclusive section of my neighborhood. Since I customize each one after installation with furniture, paint, etc., I have noticed you are doing more bold things while staying true to form.. I definitely like where this is going

This is something you dont see everyday in the Sims community, Thanks for sharing!

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

She stood in the rain
And gazed at the golden grass
Longed for those memories
She knew could never last

Wonderful job recreating the castle! It looks quite like the original (well, you know, as far as Sims things can). (^_^)

O pitiful shadow bound in darkness, looking down upon people and causing them pain... A soul drowned in sinful karma... Want to try dying this once?

Generally, I don't download lots anymore. I haven't downloaded any lots whatsoever, residential or commercial, in about 5 or 6 months. And this is only the second lot I've downloaded that is over 100,000 Simoleans. Ever. I'm not usually interested in pre-made large residential lots. But this lot is unique and lovely. The pictures don't do it justice.
