Merchant House (inspired by Arborwatch in Oblivion)

This house was built for The Medieval Charter Challenge(MCC) by vllygrl . There are two versions, one more sparsely decorated to be in accordance with the rules for MCC and one slightly more decorated in case you don’t play the MCC and want a more “finished” house. I was built it a newly generated game that has never had any playable sims and with all expansion packs up to AL. It was loaded in another newly generated game without any other CC to check that everything was included in the package.

Castle For Sale (built for the MCC challenge)

I play my sims game according to somewhat adapted rules of the Medieval Charter Challenge. This castle was build according to the rules for a noble home.

Because of the limits of the rules it is sparsely decorated with only furniture and decorations allowed according to the challenge included. To be able to keep the cost within the limit of approximately 100000 simoleons I have not added as many bushes or trees as I would have otherwise.

Type of lot; Residential
Size of lot; 4 x 4
Ingame cost; 100 059 simoleaons
How the lot was packaged;The lot was built in an any-game that I only use for building. A clone was  play-tested in another any-game without other buy- or build mode CC. No sims have entered the packaged lot.
Expansion packs; The lot was built with all exansion packs up to AL installed. No stuff packs.
Terrains used; only Maxis

CC-list and credits

The castle was very much inspired by Castle Montbrun in France. If you would prefer the real thing Castle Montbrun is actually for sale for  20.5 million Euros. Unless it was so far away from my work I would be very interested myself (o.k , ok 20.5 million Euros is slightly out of my budget but the price is negiotiable  lol ). Compared with the real castle 100 059 simoleons is a real bargain  :) .

Countryside Gentry

This is a copy of a lot that I have used for a Gentry family in my own game. I rebuilt the lot in an anygame according to the rules for the  Charter Challenge 3.0.
I would like to thank all creators who’s CC I have used, and Vllygrl for creating the MCC challenge.
According to the rules for a Gentry house in the MCC there should be 4 rooms downstairs, 4 upstairs and two privies. One of the privies in this lot is a chamber pot and a bathtub behind a screen in the master bedroom. I have used the moveobjects cheat to place animated fire by Wiccandove in the fireplaces. If you want real fire you can remove the light objects and use Sunni's invisible fireplace (you will need the moveobjects cheat).

I have not used any custom terrain paint to avoid flashing blue terrain and all CC that are needed should be included in the package (it was tested in an anygame without CC). There is not enough space to place a driveway because I didn’t realize that until the house had been built and I don’t use cars (horses) very often for my sims.

Type of lot: Residential
Ingame cost: 70 069
Size of lot: 30 x 40
Expansions packs needed: The lot was built in an anygame with all expansions packs upp to AL installed, no stuff packs
Preplayed; No, the pictures with sims are taken from a clone of the packaged lot.

   Old Stone Castle

 This is a traditional medieval stone castle built for defense. It comes in two versions, one with minimal CC and one with more CC. They have basically the same floor plan with some minor differences were I have adjusted the More-CC-version to place some of the CC. You may notice that the front of the castle is not symmetrical. Usually that would have disturbed me but it was built like that to make place for the stable and few old castles I have seen have actually been completely symmetrical as they often expanded over time. There are no fire or burglar alarms.

For the More-CC-version I recommend to download Sunni's invisible fireplace together with the burn forever hack for Sunni’s hearths (in the study and in the kitchen). The pictures are taken with these installed but they are not included because you need to let a sim light the fire before you put the hearth back in place.
Lot type: residential
Built and packed in an any-game without any sims or hacks installed. A clone has been play-tested in another any-game
Hacks used for building; moveobjects on and boolprop snapobjectstogrid false
