Verona Pass Gypsy Camp - a small, medieval gypsy camp

Requires World Adventures
Built with patch 2.3.33
Uses CC from the Sims Store, Crea Sims 3 and MTS (see details below)

According to various sources online, gypsies first emerged in continental Europe from the 14th century onwards. They appeared in England sometime in the 16th century. I thought it would be fun to try to create a colourful, roadside gypsy camp for the medieval challenge. This is an alternative to the usual style of medieval accommodation.

This lot consists of three roadside gypsy caravans and one outhouse. Each caravan contains a very comfy double bed. One of the caravans offers a kitchenette (with fridge and stove) and baby's cot, another has a desk and bookcase, and finally another one has a dresser and bookcase. Gypsies were known to use the area in front of their caravans for socialising, cooking, eating, sitting around the fire with song and dance. You'll find a fire pit with seating, a four seater dining table, a guitar and a fortune teller's table in the front area of the caravans. To the rear of the caravans, you'll find a garbage bin, an easel and a basic outhouse with one toilet, one sink and one bath tub.

There are a few fruit trees and vegetables growing amongst the forest shrubs as well as fish in the creek. A big big thanks to the awesome CC creators, whose creations added life to this lot!

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.

Absolutely gorgeous, I love it! I recently downloaded a world with no roads and I was looking for suitably rustic-looking houses to use -- this is not quite what I was thinking of, but now I can't resist using it. Thank you for making such a creative "house"! (:

I love this! I just made a desert world for Spanish and Romani people and with a few tweaks, your creation fits perfectly! One question though - where can I find the pull carts you used as caravan wheels under the houses?? I can't seem to find them anywhere! ...Oh! Just found them. Thanks again for such an awesome lot!

I unfortunately do not have World Adventures, and it doesn't look as though I will be getting it any time in the near future, but I would still love to make something like this for myself. So, could you please tell me how you achieved that lovely foundation that looks like wheels underneath? Perhaps I missed it among the CC links you provided. I really hope it's not from WA. Thanks for your time!

I love this lot but I'm having a really hard time playing it because of the hilly terrain. Took me about 10mins to find a spot to put the dog bowl b/c he couldn't get to it. And you have to use move_objects cheat to place things on the ground b/c game keeps saying can't place on slope but then when you do sims/pets can't get to it. I tried to to use the flatten lot tool and the flatten tool that you can drag but the terrain got REALLY screwed up. Anyone know of a way I can flatten this lot?
