If the style of this lot looks at all familiar to anyone, it's very much inspired by the architecture in Mount And Blade (the best game I've played for ages!), particularly the Nord city of Tihr.

There are 4 apartments with 1, 2 and possibly 3 bedrooms and rents of $1884 - $2509, plus a communal building with plenty of things in to keep your sims entertained. As usual I've tried to keep cc to an absolute minimum and whilst it's fully furnished there's still some scope for a few finishing touches with appropriate custom stuff. All the apartments have been play-tested on a cloned lot.

To Rent Furnished Apartments

* CTRL-SHIFT-C to bring up the cheat box.
* Enter the following cheat: boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true
* Walk your sim to the front door of the apartment that you want to rent. They need to be standing right in front of the door.
* Clear any actions from your sim's queue - including other sims trying to talk to them.
* SHIFT-click on the door of the apartment you wish to rent and choose "Rent Furnished."
* If the action falls out of your queue, your sim probably needs to be closer to the door.
* Once the apartment is rented, bring up the cheat box again.
* Enter: boolProp testingCheatsEnabled false to turn the cheat off again.

It looks AWESOME, and it really inspires me to do one of my one. But I have a question: wasn't it "Fimbulwinter" instead of "Fimbulvinter"?

I don't give a f*ck, God sent me to piss the world off!

Thanks for the thanks everyone...and while I'm posting, sorry to the mods for messing up the original upload!

VladCrau: It's Fimbulvinter or Fimbulvetr in the original Norse (literally The Great Winter), Fimbulwinter in English. I could be wrong, but I think they still use Fimbulvinter to describe a really bad winter in Scandinavian countries? Hope it does inspire you to make your own lot - there's always room for more medieval lots in my neighbourhood.

In southern Sweden the temperature does not always sink below -10 degrees celcius in the winter one day, so we don't use fimbulwinter here. They might still do it in Island(thats not a scandinavian country, but they can still read old norse).

I regret that I uninstalled pets, because the lot is really nice.

Thanks for the info, Suddipennan - I wasn't sure you still used the term. Glad you don't get fimbulwinters where you live though!

It's sooo cool, but does it REALLY need nightlife? I mean, isn't there ANY chance to have the village without nightlife? ABSOLUTELY? NO WAY? TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE? That's the only EP i don't have and I can't find it anywhere

Hmm...I'm pretty sure you need all the expansions it was made with, Caro123. Sorry, but I don't think there's any way you can use it without NL.
