Residential lot - Works in any game
by Numenor

This unusual house was originally created for creating a series of sim-movies (to be aired on MTV) concerning the adventures of Chengwin and Chunk.
Unfortunately, the project has been abandoned, and so I decided to release this egg-house for you to enjoy
In the screenshots, you can see the sim versions of Chengwin and Chunk, created by Janna for SimsConnection. They are NOT included, but you can download them for free HERE (external link).

Type of lot: Residential 4x4
Cost: ยง 55.691
Floors: 1
Rooms: main hall with kitchen, 1 bathroom, main bedroom, kid's room, studio, dining room and living room
Furnished: yes
Custom content: very little (see below)
Game compatibility: any game, including base game; the lot has been created using the BaseGameStarter.

CUSTOM CONTENT (all included in the Sims2Pack)
  • The 8 parts that the egg-house is made of.
  • Some elements from the WallWindow seamless set, plus the "Invisible Glass" recolour from the same thread.
  • A special "egg-glass" recolour for the WallWindow, not available anywhere else but this Sims2pack.
All the custom content has been created by myself.

The egg-house is ready to be played; the egg mesh is divided into 8 pieces, that sorround the house. When you play the lot, you can make the various sections of the egg visible/invisible by clicking on the "clickable area" (see screenshot) and choosing "Toggle Section". Each section is autonomous.
Normally, you don't need to rebuild the house, but in case you need the egg pieces, or if you want to build your own community egg-lot, you can "buy" the various egg sections ONLY opening the proper COLLECTION; you will NOT find the egg sections in the buy mode catalog.

The lot itself is in Sims2pack format: install it using the Maxis installer, the Clean Installer or the Q-Xpress.
The Collections, on the other hand, must be unzipped manually (no QX allowed) and put in: (documents)\EA Games\Collections.

Credits to Ninapinacolada for the original interior layout (that I've heavily refurnished using Maxis content) and to Boblishman for the original egg mesh (that I've heavily remodeled, broken and split to fit the house).
Thanks to Matt Murphy and Kurt Braunohler (creators and performers of the Chengwin and Chunk characters, and "wanna-be" producers of the Sim-Chengwin series ), and to Apryl Halbrooks (sim-movie maker) for their valuable input.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
