Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is #8 from my set of homes inspired by the little thumbnail pictures of the houses collected in "We Love Katamari," the second Katamari Damacy game. In that collection each house had a family name (although the residents were never seen) and included a blurb about them, which I've added below.

Each house in this set is furnished and decorated except for the single bedrooms, which are only very basically furnished in order to accommodate different types of families. I've added a furnished "no cc" version here as well.

8-Miyamoto Residence

-This family is considering moving overseas soon.

*Because this house was called Miyamoto, I thought that as a small tribute to Shigeru Miyamoto I would make the decor just a little bit more playful than usual.

For those downloading the one with CC, you will find the additional CC that didn't package grouped in the one file now.
Just install ".Sims2Pack" as usual and add ".package" files to the downloads folder.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • 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.
