Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
UPDATE: Some downloaders of this lot were reporting a one-tile slope appearing on the edge of the lot, making it inaccessible by Sims (and pretty stupid-looking as well). I believe I have fixed this issue and have repackaged and re-uploaded the lot. If you were having issues, the new download may work better for you! Let me know if it doesn't.

Also, if you try to place this lot on a 40 x 40 spot, there will be a large gap between the front of the house and the road (due to a Sims 3 "feature" which lets you move a house to a bigger lot but apparently puts said lot smack dab in the middle of the new one). Therefore I recommend putting this house on a 40 x 30 space.

I've updated the lot size and cost, since it changed while I was messing about with it. The game now claims it is a 30 x 40 lot, but I still recommend placing it on a 40 x 30, because I put the front of the house on the long side of the lot, not the short side. (It was on a corner lot originally.)

Thanks to everyone for the feedback! It is much appreciated.

The Perfidia is a quaint suburban home that was inspired by the kinds of idyllic homes you see in the movies or TV shows. What secrets lurk behind its cheerful facade? Move in your own Stepford family or sitcom brood and find out! (Disclaimer: secrets not included.)

One thing I noticed when moving the lot: it works best on corner lots or on a lot where the longest part of the lot is along the road. You should be able to rotate it after placement if it isn't facing the right way at first.



Since this is my first TS3 house upload, I'd love feedback. I did playtest the house, but you never know what things might crop up. Let me know if something is really wonky!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I don't download many houses, but I'll definitely grab this for its fun suburban style - it reminds me of the Leave it to Beaver/Desperate Housewives house.

Well done!

I love it! I am not really good at designing and building houses. This looks so real, that it is one of houses that you see in the magazines or something like that, not from Sims 3! My Sims family will be much happy to have it in the neighborhood.

I wonder will it be possible to use this same house in the neighborhood, but change the colors outside and inside of the house for different families? I would like to use this house for my other families as well, not only one family. Thanks.

I also love this house, but wherever I put it, it appears to be on some plateu or something and my sims can't access it. Am I doing something wrong?

So if I am reading correctly, we can use the Sims2 clean installer, rather than the Monkey or the Launcher?

For some reason, I though nothing Sims2 related worked with Sims3. Just need reassurance before installing. Thank you, it is beautiful!

ETA: I dragged the file to my desktop from my download file (a Vista feature) then double clicked your file. The sims3 launcher opened up and installed the house. I assumed the monkey installer would do it. Meh, I put the Monkey installer in my downloads folder. Should I have left it on my desktop?

Sorry, I need to re-read installation instructions.

description reads lot size is 40x30. However it is coming up in the game as a 40x40 with the slope in front of the house making it impossible to access. Boo.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm not sure what's going on with the sloping issue. I'm going to test the house on a few more lots and see what I can find. Also not sure why it would say 40 x 40 in pinkster's game, but 40 x 30 in mine. Very weird. Has anyone gotten the lot to work properly?

Oh, and chimp78: if you can get the lot to work (heh), you should be able to place it multiple times, since in TS3 you really place a "copy" of the house. Then use Create-A-Style to change the colors of siding/wallpaper/flooring, and you have a whole new house!

okblondee: Did you get the house to install OK?
