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


Soon after I uploaded the Tsukiyama home, I had a request to make a traditional Japanese house and I decided to go for it. The problem is that the game actually only has Chinese furniture, so therefore I decided to name the home as "A Traditional Eastern Home" (Yes, I know I'm bad with names ).



The details:
Lot: 30x30
Price furnished: 68,208§
Price unfurnished: 52,041§
3 Bedrooms (one double bed)
2 Bathrooms
A combined livingroom/kitchen/dinginroom

No custom content used

There's none modern technology used in the house. You can easily add a computer to the master bedroom, though.





Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 68,208

Additional Credits:
IsmaielDeath for the request to make the house

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Very Nice!
Normally I don't download houses from.......anywhere, Because I'm a designer myself. But this one caught my eye and tend to struggle with Asian Traditional houses and i just love this on so much! The only thing that could possibly make this house better would be a basement. Other then that this house is just amazing. Great job!

I did think of that but I really couldn't figure out what to put in the basement so I decided not to include one. Of course some kind of nectar machine and the nectar racks could've been nice but apart from sake I haven't heard that the traditional eastern people had a habit to drink wine The basement should be easy to add though if you need it.

I recommend this guide made by Flabaliki. I used a different method myself but this is just as good What I did was raising the terrain below the bridge so the bridge rose too (CFE on). Once I reached the desired shape I turned CFE off, flattened the ground below the bridge and added water. Check the guide if I wasn't clear enough.
