Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here’s a small old village for your sims to enjoy.
Works well for a medieval type lot, or a modern day restoration project.

Rent: 811 – 2,311 simoleons

This lot has five apartments
The guard house: Three story apartment with a small garden, balcony, bath, kitchen, study and master bedroom.



Applebee Cottage: Cottage with a small garden, dining/kitchen area, living room, bath and master bedroom.



Stonewall cottage: Small cottage with a cellar, bath, master bedroom and kitchen/living area



Miller’s quarters: Large apartment with two bedrooms, living/kitchen area, bath and a small study
The miller’s assistant: Tiny apartment with bath, single bedroom and a living/kitchen area.



Apartment are furnished with the necessary comforts. Make sure to ‘Rent furnished’ if you want your sims to actually enjoy the furnishings!
When choosing an apartment, turn on ‘boolprop testingcheatsenabled true’, then shift-click on the door and choose ‘Rent furnished’. This is a bit tricky, as it tends to drop from the queue. I find it works best if you stand right in front of the doormat. Make sure to turn off the testing cheats by typing ‘boolprop testingcheatsenabled false’ into the cheat box before continuing.

Notes: There doesn’t seem to be a way to stop the landlord from coming in your garden to water and tend the crops, but he doesn’t steal them, so yay

Content not included
I'm terribly sorry, for some reason, the game didn't package these:
Compost bin recolour by Tiggerypum for the Guild Masters
Wishing well, made buyable by [Black_Spirit] and Numenor
Thatch roof by Bluegenie2

Update: You may need to download the Basic horse pack for the colour of the horse to show up correctly.

All other custom content is included. A huge thanks to all the wonderful creators.

Lot Size: 4x4

<3 Lethe. This still makes me jealous that my PC can't hadle 4x4 lots.

I would like to clear up the little matter of my sanity as it has come into question. I am not in any way, shape, or form, sane. Insane? Hell yes!

People keep calling me 'evil.' I must be doing something right.

This is very... medieval! I love it all, the outdoor deco specially (and the watermill and stables just rock)
I was missing your work and I hope you go on uploading (^^,)

Lethe_s great work and just wanted to say thanks, also to point out that I had to re-download the horses as they were showing blue in the lot. I have not moved a sim in yet, but looking around it all seem well and I see alot of hard work went into it.

Thanks again.

thanks for the comments, people, I'm glad you like it

darkangelwitch,
thanks for the heads up.
I'm pondering if I accidentally used a recolour of the horses, instead of the base mesh.
I swear I meant to use just the mesh, sorry about that. I'll make a note for future downloaders.

this looks great. but i cant risk downloading it as you havent actaully said what meshes are needed.

It's sooo cool, but does it REALLY need nightlife? I mean, isn't there ANY chance to have the village without nightlife? ABSOLUTELY? NO WAY? TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE? That's the only EP i don't have and I can't find it anywhere

To download something that is not in a zip file, download an application called AlZip. It does everything you need, and can uncompress any file type (after it has been compressed, obviously)
