1  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Residential / Mini-House - The Octagon on: August 05, 2007, 10:26:40 pm
The Octagon - $34,816 - Laze away the hours sitting on any one of this 3 story condo’s eight cozy balconies or enjoy a scenic view from the ground-level veranda in this octagon-shaped home.  Amenities include a spacious living room, kitchen, master bedroom with large master bath plus a half-bath near the kitchen.  This condo is simple elegance in vibrant shades of red and gray.  Roof access provides a perfect place for a sunset or sunrise party. (Lot location and view in photo not included.)

Furnished with all Maxis content except for the following:

Credit for 1x1 lot (and many other really neat lot sizes) goes to MaryLou at MTS2.  This lot package is required for this house to be placed in the game.  You can find MaryLou’s Mini  Residential Lots at this link:

Credit to Targa for the original Targa Ascension, another necessary item for this house to function as it was intended.  This item is included in the download package however I wanted to point back to the original object page at MTS2 and thank Targa for this amazing object.  Without it this house would not have been possible.:

All Maxis Expansion Packs plus two stuff packs (FFS and GLS) were installed when this house was created.
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Need to clear pet friendships, STR and LTR on: June 25, 2007, 09:48:08 pm
I know this isn't exactly about Seasons but I can't find anywhere else that would be appropriate to post my help request.  If this is the wrong place, please move or point me in the right direction. Smiley

I have a Sim who is stuck trying to raise 20 puppies or kittens. (He got the task before I got the mod to downsize it to 10 so he's stuck at 20.)  He's about 18 or 19 puppies and/or kittens through the task or I hope he is.  I can't find a way to count them other than in his friends list.  All of the puppies and kittens he raised so far are still in his friends list with most of them showing friend and best friend paws, even if the STR and LTR are 0.  His Wants window is always full of wants relating to the past puppies and kittens, all of which are now in other Sims homes.  Is there any way to clear these critters out so they do not crowd his wants window?  I tried everything I could think of with Insimenator but nothing seemed to work after they'd left the lot.  I'm not even sure if I can do it in SimPE.
3  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Neighborhoods / New Neighborhood: Winter Mountain on: February 27, 2007, 12:51:31 am
Snow covered ribbons snake along the peaks and high mountain regions of Winter Mountain, joining cabin to village; connecting mountaineer to their only link with the outside world.  Very few can survive the rugged slopes and harsh conditions of Winter Mountain.  Can you?

There is so much I must tell you about this terrain so please bear with me in this long post.

When I first started creating this terrain more than 3 weeks ago it was my intent to make something extreme... well, as extreme as I could get in Sims 2.   I wanted something that my adventurous Sims could sink their teeth into.  The result is attached to this thread.  This terrain was created specifically for use with the Seasons expansion pack and I created it to be a “year-round” winter landscape.  I’m not suggesting that you stick your Sims in hip-deep snow as I plan to do though.  I just wanted you to know what I was thinking when I made Winter Mountain.  Actually I hadn't planned on sharing this with the outside world but I thought, just maybe, there might be someone else out there who has adventurous Sims too. Wink

Please note: This landscape was not created for those who do not use the Neighborhood Camera Mod.  ((  Although it will work with the small view, play will be difficult due to the elevation of the mountains and you will not see the entire scape... and there’s a lot to see. Unfortunately, Sims 2 doesn’t allow for the rugged peaks that Sim City 4 shows in the original landscape. (See photo for original screenshot)  But, hopefully, it shouldn’t matter once the snow starts to fly. Smiley

This neighborhood was created by me using Sim City 4 Deluxe with the Rush Hour EP installed.  I added a few trees across the mountain peaks but due to Sims 2 usually multiplying SC4 trees by at least 5-10, flora is sparse.  I have EP1 - 4 installed but am not sure you would need them to use this neighborhood (Sorry, I can’t test that theory though.)  I have tested this terrain in my game for the past two weeks and it works without error or problems.  There are more than 125 places to add lots however there are very few, if any, of those that will accommodate anything much larger than a 2x2 and many of those will not be level or be half-imbedded into the side of a mountain.  I did manage to find a spot that would take a 2x4 but those are going to be rare.  Afterall, this is a very mountainous region meaning mostly small cabins and other similar structures are all that’s going to fit.  There are also 3-4 areas that will allow 8 or more lots in close proximity... perfect for a small mountain village or town.  No guard rails though and you must supply your own 4x4s and snow tires. Wink

This neighborhood is being uploaded only to and is not to appear on any other website, pay or free.  Please honor that.

Enjoy Winter Mountain! (copyright 2007 - TXSundown, Inc.)


** I have added a revamped Winter Mountain down a few screens.  Please check there.  Thanks!
4  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Neighborhoods / New Neighborhood with Beachfront & Views on: February 23, 2007, 08:51:57 pm
With Sims 2: Seasons coming out next week I thought I’d make a Seasons-inspired neighborhood or two.  Of course, you don’t have to have Seasons to play it, just that it was made with the advent of farms and fruit and vegetable growing that S2Seasons will bring in mind.

The community is nestled between the mountains and the ocean.  An island, connected by a bridge, sits in the inlet near a sandy beachfront.    Tucked into a hidden valley are winding roads and rich, fertile soil, perfect for farming. The many roads lead up the mountainside and allow for some spectacular views.

Photos show a beachfront lot as well as a view of the bridge from one of the mountain roads.
I created this neighborhood so both those who use the MTS2 Neighborhood Camera Mod and those who do not, can have a good sized community.  Although it would be to the player’s benefit to use the camera mod for this particular neighborhood, it is not necessary.  Even without the camera mod the bridge and most of the island can be seen and played.  Even some of the sandy beach can be used.  But there is much more the small view does not see... the rich fertile valley that is perfect for farmers and even more beachfront property.

The photos show both large view (with camera mod) and small view (without the camera mod).  The camera mod can be found here: ( if you are interested.  I have tested the neighborhood both ways and either is equally playable.

Other than a few trees, the bridge and standard roads no other additions have been made.  I have EP1 - 4 installed but am not sure one would need them to use this neighborhood (Sorry, I can’t test that theory though.)  The neighborhood was created with Sim City 4 Deluxe with the Rush Hour EP installed.

This neighborhood is being uploaded only to (my first upload to this site) and is not to appear on any other website, pay or free.  Please honor that.
