Note: After playtesting and placing the lot in several different empty lots, I noticed that the lot size had changed from 30x20 to 30x19 and as a result, the large octagonal steampunk window on the port side (left) of the ship tends to disappear. The only solution is to delete that wall and use the build mode dropper to replicate the wall covering and the window. I think this problem is related to the game resizing the lot to 30x19.

There is room in the top roof attic for a washer/dryer if you so wish.


Lot placement tip for Sunset Valley:


After installing the lot, zoom in and click on the World Editor button. Still in the World Editor menu, click on the Lots tab and select a 30x20 lot. Press the alt key and carefully place this empty lot on the beach. Now go to the Select button and find Steampunk Supreme in the "Show Empty Houses" menu. Place the lot on the lot you've just created on the beach. The mail and newspapers are still delivered to the lot in this location, however, when your Sim wants to go shopping/to work etc, the Sim first runs to the road where he/she gets into a vehicle/bike/taxi.

Lot Size: 30x20
Furnished: 221,117
Unfurnished: 90,694

Drive safely!

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: 221,117

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.

This is such an amazing house. Looking at it, you can almost imagine it moving, and placing it on the beach was genius.

Ninotchka, I hate you! Not really. Just that I was just working on a lot for my soon-to-be Steampunk Selfsim, that is a solar and wind-powered Steampunk Airship (grounded), using some of the same build elements. And your lot makes it look so bad in comparison! But it will fit in well in the Steampunk Barnacle Bay I'm working on, especially since you have actually made most of the lots! Thank you for another exceptional lot!
