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

3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Beach House

Featuring decks to 3 sides, a pier and jetty with diving board.

Built using Numenors Anygame Starter
Playtested for several Simdays
Fully Furnished throughout with Maxis Content

Fire and Burglar alarms instsalled
All major Appliances included .

First Floor

Parking located to the right of the house
Outside Spa

Upper Floor

Master Bedroom with en-suite
2 Single bedrooms
Family Bathroom

The diving board on the jetty is functional but the animations are squiffy, direct the sim to do something waves, build sandcastle etc.

!!! In order to make the stairs work in your game, you need to put the files 2008_CrocobauraChicModularStairs.txt; 2009_CrocobauraWoodenModularStairs.txt; 2010_CrocobauraSteadfastModularStairs.txt in your Scriptorium_ModularStairs folder if you're using the Scriptorium, or you need to copy the text inside each at the bottom of the modularstairs.txt file from this path:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts

I used Frillen Driveway and extension, located at the bottom of the page
Usynlig indkørsel

The moveObject on and the snapObjectstoGrid cheats were used for the landscaping. this will freek your gardener out. I would invest in a Garden hack to keep a lid on it.

In larsson 1970. wonderfull American Beach 22 thread, post number 5 there is a link to a tutorial that is usefull regarding placement of beach lots.

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.

maiamorgan the anmation for the diving board is fine but the sim swims underwater and then surfaces before diving to the seabed again, being in the sea this looks quite good but not right, I have had no issues regarding crashed games.

taness Iwill PM you with some info

I redownloaded from MTS and extracted the file, renamed it 14 Ocean Grove and installed it with Clean Installer. It now works... I'm not sure why , perhaps there was some sort of problem during the first download but now all is well.

juh5116 a tutorial by plasticbox called "bigger attics" has a section called "Barn Roofs with Bigger Attics" which illustrates this type of roof perfectly.
I hope this helps.
