Hi again, Friends!

It's been over a year since I have uploaded anything Sims 3 related. I haven't played as much in Sims 3 since I finished my main sims story in 2016. Lately, however, I decided to restart my main sims' story again, so I needed to build a neighborhood for all of them! These homes were built specifically for Subalpine Blvd. in Hidden Springs, (right next to the school), but can be placed anywhere and in any town. I consider them to be legacy homes because they are built for specific sims in my story, and they will continue to live in these homes as they age (this is why they have a Surname attached instead of just a number or something similar.) I decorated each house in the style of each family living there by going into some of my previous Sims 3 houses and bringing the furniture over to the new houses! It actually took a lot more time than I imagined, but I really like how they turned out. I hope you do, too.

Two of the houses was inspired by a house I already built for Sims 3 years ago, (and I also built them in Sims 4 as well a while ago), Two houses were inspired by houses I built in Sims 4 this year, and have now brought them into Sims 3, and one house was inspired directly by my Sims 4 Wisteria Lane series, although the exterior is different, as is the interior furnishings.

I know I kind of went "bare bones" with the photos this time. I just didn't feel like taking hours to get them all finished. You can see exterior and overhead views through, which is most important.

Also, this very well might be my last upload for The Sims 3, too. I’ve been building in Sims 3 for nine years, and uploading here for almost five. I still love Sims 3, but I feel like I have come to a natural end when it comes to building in this game. It's been a fun ride; thank you all for being a part of it.

ALSO: Also, somehow I got the following pieces of store content in my game. I don't remember downloading them, but I must have a long time ago. Seeing as this will likely be my last Sims 3 post, I decided to put them in the nursery. They are not included in the house file here on MTS, but you can find them on TheSims3.com and place them in-game yourself. They aren't necessarily required, but do help the house feel more like a family home, which I think is important.

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.
