Created for: The Sims 2

Creator Notes

If you leave Shadows On in this lot, some of the snow roof slopes will have a slight horizontal line. For best effect, turn Shadows OFF in this lot.

If you're using Nightlife and want to add a driveway and garage, I'd recommend adding CycloneSue's Invisible Driveway, to keep the snow and ice textures. :) This is simply a recolor, not a new mesh; it's now included in a set called The Doorless Garage. To download it go to Sue's minisite via the Featured Artist list, then from her Archive go Sets>Objects, and either Search for the set there or go to Page 3 or 4.

Before adding the riveway sections, remember to delete the windows in the 'garage'. The NL garage door fits where Raveena's beautiful wallpaper door is - paste over it first if you prefer. ;)

This Creation requires what's listed below in order to work properly.

Required Creations:

Installation Instructions:

Please notice that this item needs 2 extra meshes to install properly - all listed here under Requirements and Dependencies. If you prefer to install the complete set from which they come, they are: Windkeeper’s Rosewood Doors And Windows (ID 197398).

Install the meshes before installing the building.

If you can download the meshes or have them already (they're all well-known) you should have no trouble installing with the Maxis default installer ("The Sims2 Bodyshop Package Installer"). But if you do have any problem getting them, please download the Sims2Pack Clean Installer, which is available free here at TSR (go Frontpage > Content > Programs and it's on the first page).

The Clean Installer is much more effective than the Maxis default at installing custom content, and should allow you to install the meshes automatically with the house.

CEP Required!

Tiko! Your Mid Winter Series of houses are fantastic! I have everyone of them and they look and play fantastic in the game! I am delighted with them! I was so impressed with the basement garage, I downloaded your tutorial and have been practicing making them .... your tutorial is so well delivered .... even "I" can actually follow it (I am a bit 'tutorial-stupid', and ususally have trouble following directions, LOL!). Thank you!!!
