Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Small medieval cottage, I draw one's inspiration from RPG games.
On the first floor is situated living room (which also act as dining room) and kitchen. I thought about kitchen for some time, It's very hard to create medieval atmosphere, without necessary objects, so I decided to left the oven and changed only pattern for wood. On the second floor is bedroom with tree single beds. Cottage have also a basement, and a small bathroom inside.
It's build of wood and stone, most furniture is made of wood, and skin. I created terrain paint (pink flowers- recolour), flowers and grass to decorate a yard.
I tested cottage in my game.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
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.
