Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I blame CFF. There I was, minding my own business, when I saw that ekrubynaffit was busy making the house from the Sound of Music and I offered to make some windows for it. Well, I made the windows and I was testing them out and ended up building a lot. THEN it was pointed out to me that I always make the same old boring houses - under 20k starter with all the same furniture. SO, this house was a challenge for me to use all the things in a house that I hate and still be happy with it, despite it costing an arm and a leg (or a fin and tail depending on your species).

Here it is - Flibbering Depths.



Some info

The paved area on the right side will fit a car driveway extension and all plants are reachable by sims - which is why they are all in a straight line ... the front door is on a diagonal so the paperboy will drop the paper at the back door. If anyone knows of a mod to fix this I will be very grateful to know about it.

The lot has been resized using Mootilda's AWESOME lot adjuster - thank you Mootilda

It has a LOT of CC - the aforementioned windows, Buggybooz's lovely cooker and fridge, some great recolours of hideous Maxis furniture by vikncharlie and a couple of recolours by me. The recolours by me did not package with the lot but are included in the .rar file.


Poly Count for the windows and doors

The windows and doors are all repo linked to the AL socialite windows.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments

The complete windows and doors upload is currently on my hard drive and the delay is because I am pondering if I should add two tile versions of all windows and doors. It is more complete, but also quite a bit more work.

I WILL upload the windows and doors as a separate upload (so that diagonals will be properly available) either way, but right now you can see the house as a preview of the window set and a quite cute house in its own right (I think).

It's a very homey place and the windows are really perfect. The whole style of the house is beautifully consistent, country cottage!

Love the house! Sweet!

I'm eagerly awaiting the complete window/door set... 2T is always nice, but if it's a LOT of work, I can live without it.

Thank you for creating and sharing.

I vote for multiple tiles if you don't have something more pressing because I am an addicted window and door collector and I love these.

Leefish, did you intend the house to be flooded? I put it in two different places in my neighborhood, and in both places the house was two feet under water. I tried levelling with the sidewalk, but that did not work. Sorry, but in my neighborhood your pretty house is unusable.

Lol of course I did not intend it to be flooded - I tested this house in Pleasantview and Bluewater. No flooding in those hoods. You could just have a low hood. Try levelling the lot front to back, it has flat edges and should be fine.

Do you have any houses with basements in your hood?

EDIT: I went to the hood and flattened the lot for you - I sent the file to you via PM.

Beautiful windows, I love the detail in the inside of the windows with the hinges, plus the door is lovely as well! Great job and thank you!

Aww thank you very much, but I cannot take credit for the hinges - those are the EA textures I , er, borrowed. I love love love those Apartment Life Windows, but I like these variants I am currently working on even more as they are so usable
