TS4 to TS3 - Sandtrap Flat - Basegame Starter, no CC

Sims 4 has a lot of beautiful houses on Oasis Springs, and then I decided to build the "Sandtrap Flat" starter in Sims 3, using only basegame items.

The original lot in Sims 4 was built in a 30x20 lot, with a large empty space backyards. But in Sims 3 I've built it in a 20x20 lot to get a cheaper lot, and expanded the house in one tile backward, to get a roof just like the original.

Inside the house (with help of our wonderful CASt ) I've tried to keep it just like the original one, but I've replaced the island counters and the stools by a table for two sims (again, to make a cheaper house), and added some deco items with the simoleons left :D


Furnished: 15.889
Unfurnished: 12.168

Size: 20x20

Built with patch 1.57. No EP/SP and no CC included.

Recomended mod: Remove Deco mod by velocitygrass, used to remove the stencils in the counters. If you don't have this mod installed on your game, the stencils will get shown back if you CASt these items.

This lot is sim-tested and checked with Custard.

Lot Size: 20x20
Lot Price (furnished): 15.889
Lot Price (unfurnished): 15.889

Additional Credits:
To Armiel, for Builder's Island;
and to velocitygrass for the Remove Deco mod.

Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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 love starter houses that manage to be spacious, cheap AND pretty--like this one! My Sims will definitely be getting some use out of this.
