THE STEPFORD PROJECT: PART 1

November 2010 UPDATE
I've added an alternative version of the EBERHART MANSION below. Take a look inside here:

It's important to note that the Additional Version requires ALL EP's (EXCEPT PETS) and Mansion & Gardens. It has the same floor plan, lot size and layout as the original version (see below). The lot cost is 567,029 Simoleons. The differences in the 2 versions are as follows:
* moved the jacuzzi 1 tile from pool so Sims won't get stuck when getting out
* remodeled one bedroom/bath as a kid's bedroom/bath
* turned the kitchen barstools facing the counter so they slide in properly
* added a few kid friendly items throughout the house (game console, toys, lemonade stand, etc.)
* added antique telephones to the house
* added the NPC Dishwasher
* added ceiling tiles to every room that add a bit of wealth to the house

Be sure to download both "NEW" files from the Downloads area for your house to show properly. Also keep in mind that this lot is a Corner Lot and must be placed on a corner to work properly. See details below. Don't worry, it's easy to do.

--------------------------------------------------

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLECTION
The Stepford Project is a small collaborative project by Deluxe Designers Inc. (StephSim and Deluxe Designs). We wanted to bring your wealthy Sims a truly "exclusive" neighborhood to play in. What better place than Stepford, Connecticut. This project is based on the 2004 version of the American movie "The Stepford Wives". The movie basically tells a tale of how men bring their significant others to the seemingly "perfect" Stepford community to help them improve who they are. The cast includes Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick, Glenn Close, Christopher Walken, Bette Midler, John Lovitz, Faith Hill and many others. The Stepford Project revolves around this fictitious neighborhood and all of it's splendor. We will present the lots in parts.

Note:
This is Part 1 and includes 2 Stepford Mansions: The Eberhart Kresby Mansion and the Wellington Mansion. Over time we may add more lots to the Stepford community. Enjoy the downloads!

--------------------------------------------------



LOT INFORMATION
There are 2 mansions in this download. Both mansions have 3 Versions:
-a FURNISHED version with Custom Content
-a MAXIS/EA Content Furnished Version
-a Limited Custom Content UNFURNISHED Version
-The Eberhart Mansion is a corner lot. Place the lots with the driveway to the side and the mailbox facing you. You need a lot that has a sidewalk to the front and the right side (a backwards "L" for those of you who are very visual) to place this lot properly. If for some reason you forget and enter the lot, just exit and turn the lot to face the correct direction!

EXTRAS IN ZIPS
There are certain recolors or bedding that do not automatically zip in Sims2Packs. As a result, the bedding for both mansions has been included in the zip with the houses. Be sure to add these items to your downloads folder BEFORE entering the lots.

CUSTOM CONTENT:
Most of the Custom Content in these downloads is divided between the 2 lots and includes build mode objects like walls, floors, windows, doors and a few flowers. The Eberhart house includes 1 Living Room set by Macarossi. Keep this in mind if you remove the Custom Content. Your lots may not "look" as they do in the picture.

Well hopefully the next community lots will be up on Sunday, and then the Part 3, the next 2 mansions will be up the week after. We will then add more lots to the project over time.

Thank you for the compliment janicekristy. Yeah...I had PLANS for the group. But sometimes RL (and The Sims 3) can really get in the way of the plans of mice and men!

Do enjoy the downloads!
