Title: ScaryRob's Lot Uploads to SimFileShare
Post by: ScaryRob on November 29, 2018, 11:24:27 PM
I've finally gotten off my lazy duff and started uploading my Lots to SimFileShare. Those of you who may have downloaded some of my stuff off MTS a few years ago, I can tell you that I've updated just about every Lot, many of them substantially.

Here's the link to all my Lots: https://simfileshare.net/folder/61276/

I package all my Lots using Mootilda's Clean Installer.
All my Lots are tested, functional and have never been occupied by any Sims.
I have all TS2 Expansions and Stuff Packs and I do not keep track of which objects come from specific Expansions or Stuff Packs for any given Lot. My Double Deluxe Base Game is not compatible with Numenor's AnyGameStarter program, so I cannot make Lots specific to the Base Game or a specific Expansion.

Being mainly a Lot maker, I don't have much custom content in my game. I limit myself to relatively few Custom Content build objects or sets that have the most dramatic aesthetic and/or functional effect. That said, I do not build for aesthetics only, but for functionality, realism and aesthetics.

I have only a relatively small handful of mods installed in my game, including mostly things that I need to concern myself with as a Lot maker. This also includes a small number of Maxis bug and graphic fixes (which can affect the aesthetics of a Lot). Some of these mods and fixes will package with a Lot, most of them will not.
If any of my Lots are not working the way you would expect them to, please review the mods and fixes listed below, as these are the most important ones I use that affect Lot making, Lot aesthetics, and associated Sim behavior:

Mods:

(Numenor) The "CEP" Color Enable Package: https://modthesims.info/d/92541/the-quot-cep-quot-color-enable-package-v-9-2-0-15-may-2009.html
(Numenor) The Scriptorium: https://modthesims.info/d/192613/the-scriptorium-v-2-2f-bugfix-radiance-2-4.html
(Numenor) Slot Enable Package: https://modthesims.info/d/144021/the-sep-slot-enable-package-v-1-2-upd-19may08.html

(arek_91) "Select your cemetery" after sims died: https://modthesims.info/d/316426/fixed-ver-quot-select-your-cemetery-quot-after-sims-died.html

Graphics Changes/Fixes:

(Menaceman44) Lunatech 'Lighten Up' Ceiling Light Fix: https://modthesims.info/d/315720/lunatech-lighten-up-ceiling-light-fix.html
(Feenwald) Replacements Floor Tile Edge (usually white): http://www.feenwald.com/en/specials/replacements/flooredge.php

Most of my Lots tend toward a contemporary/modern style. I carefully furnish just about all of my houses, but do so only as a suggestion and to make sure that the layout is playable with Maxis furniture. I entirely expect and encourage players to replace the Maxis furniture with better-looking and in many cases more functional CC furniture of their own choosing. I'm a Sims Lot maker, not a Sims interior decorator. In fact, I don't particularly enjoy interior decorating.

I include relevant pictures as well as a README notepad file with every zipped upload. The README provides a quick overview of the attributes of a Lot, such as number of bedrooms, baths, driveways, links to CC used, etc., and any other pertinent or interesting information.

Here are the first few uploads, all CC-free except for the last one, which needs Numenor's 'CEP Color Enable Package':

Post by: ScaryRob on April 13, 2019, 06:36:15 AM
I just uploaded three more Lots to my SimFileShare page.

Townhouse#01-3BR: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1015853/
A townhouse, converted from an old factory. Original Lot design by gagafanu: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?goto=lastpost&t=515305
This is an oddly-shaped townhouse, which nevertheless turned out great. The original design is by gagafanu, at MTS, although he no longer has his version uploaded there.
The house features three bedrooms, all with ensuite full baths, an additional half-bath, a playroom/nursery, several gardening plots and even an indoor swimming pool in the basement. That's a lot of house considering the tiny 10x20 lot size. All of it tested and perfectly functional of course, as always. There are some changes from the upload I had on MTS previously.
It includes only one CC object, the tall cypress trees, which can be substituted with some Maxis trees, although they do fit very well with this house:

Desert#01Start-1+BR-NCC: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1015854/
An adobe-style desert starter home.
The second of my uploads today is an adobe-style desert starter house. I've changed a couple of minor things since the time I had this uploaded to MTS a few years ago. The Lot features several harvestable prickly pear cacti.
I did use the optional invisible driveway recolor, which doesn't package with the Lot, so you'll have to download and install that yourself if you want it as shown in the picture. If not, you'll just get the regular Maxis concrete driveway:
(roddyaleixo) Invisible Driveway & Extensions: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=90875
Major Update 11Sep2020: Added a half bedroom downstairs (at the expense of a large cactus to keep it under 20k).

(https://i.ibb.co/TKZGSdP/Desert-01-Start-Int-Floor1.jpg)

Desert#02-2BR: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1015856/
A contemporary-styled desert house.
My final upload for today is one of my more recent builds, a two-bedroom desert contemporary. This has never before been uploaded anywhere else. Aside from the two bedrooms, it features two terraces, two fruit trees, several prickly pear cacti and beautiful landscaping. As with a number of my other Lots, the only CC used is Numenor's CEP package:
(Numenor) The "CEP" - Color Enable Package v. 9.2.0 - 15 MAY 2009: http://www.modthesims.info/d/92541/the-quot-cep-quot-color-enable-package-v-9-2-0-15-may-2009.html
(https://i.ibb.co/tZfcwQD/Desert-02-Ext1-Custom.jpg)

(https://i.ibb.co/wdgX9S9/Desert-02-Ext2-Custom.jpg)

That's it for today. Many more to come in the near future. Thanks, and enjoy.

Two more Lots uploaded.

Contemporary#01-2BR: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1021980/
This was the first Lot I made after getting back into The Sims 2, back in 2012. That early version, which I had uploaded on MTS a few years ago, had a routing problem on the second floor. I have fixed this and have made the second floor roomier in the process. It's amazing how much space is created just by removing one large closet. This now seems to play very nicely. Aside from the two bedrooms and nursery upstairs, there is a fairly large, unfurnished, sunlit basement for players to use as needed. This Lot also features a fenced-in driveway, the easy tutorial for which is linked in the README.
The only CC is Numenor's CEP package:
(Numenor) The "CEP" - Color Enable Package v. 9.2.0 - 15 MAY 2009: http://www.modthesims.info/d/92541/the-quot-cep-quot-color-enable-package-v-9-2-0-15-may-2009.html

Contemporary#02Starter-1BR-NCC: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1021981/
This is another early Lot I made in 2012, recolored and somewhat redone. It has a sunken living room, driveway, and fishable pond, aside from the usual basic necessities. Actually, as a matter of personal interest to me, this design is a mirror of one I first made way back in 2004-05, when I was uploading stuff to the Exchange, although I don't think that version was a starter. Wow, 15 years ago. No custom content.
Updated 14Sep2020: Slight change to Lot filename. No actual changes to Lot.

I have made major updates to two of my previously posted Lots, from 25 March, uptopic. The Lots in question are Brutalist#01-2BR and Brutalist#02-3BR. The updates, mostly dealing with the landscaping, should make these two Lots fit better into neighborhoods.

Three more uploads today, all circular-shaped houses.

Circular#01-5BR-NCC: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1042485/
A large, circular-shaped house. Two large bedrooms upstairs, both with ensuites, one with a nursery. Three more bedrooms in the sunlit basement, one furnished as an office, one unfurnished. Swimming pool, wrap-around terrace, garage with additional space, more. I've substantially modified the master suite from previous versions, as well as possibly the basement layout (don't remember previous versions). No CC.
Updated 23Aug2019: I put a new roof on the house. Pics have been updated.
Updated 11Sep2020: Changed Lot name from the former 'Contemporary#07-5BR'. No actual changes to Lot.

Circular#02-2BR-NCC: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1042483/
Another circular-shaped house. Sunlit basement to use as needed, swimming pool, barbecue deck, greenhouse and two fruit trees. No CC.
Updated 24Aug2019: I put a new roof on the house. Pics have been updated.

RoundHouse-2BR: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1042496/
The third upload for today is a Lot inspired by and loosely based on a real-life house, the so-called Round House, in Connecticut. The real one rotates (check out some of the cool videos on YouTube), which this Sims 2 version obviously can't. Elevator, swimming pool and fishable pond are only some of the features. I've simplified and improved the bedrooms and bathrooms from versions previously uploaded to MTS. The only CC is Numenor's CEP: (Numenor) The "CEP" - Color Enable Package v. 9.2.0 - 15 MAY 2009: http://www.modthesims.info/d/92541/the-quot-cep-quot-color-enable-package-v-9-2-0-15-may-2009.html
Updated 14May2019: Another roof change, and a few other minor aesthetic changes. Pix updated.
Updated 13Sep2020: Rearranged living room furniture for better routing/efficiency. A few other minor aesthetic changes. Pix updated.

Post by: ScaryRob on March 27, 2020, 09:49:16 PM
In case anyone is wondering whether I will upload more Lots, since I haven't done so in almost a year, the answer is yes. Long story short, after taking a break from Sims 2 for about six months last year, I had to reinstall Win7 last October. Now, with Win7 no longer supported, I will eventually go to Win10. When that will be, I don't know - whenever I feel like spending the money, I guess.
So right now I don't have Sims 2 installed, and probably won't again until I get Win10. Hopefully the game will run then. I still plan on making new houses, as well as to continue updating my backlog of older ones.

Post by: ScaryRob on September 12, 2020, 03:20:28 AM
After almost a year of not having the game installed (first due to a computer issue last October, which turned out to be minor and easily resolved, then due to 10 months of procrastination), I'm finally back to Simming, ie, Lot making. But hey, many of my testing sessions are hours-long affairs and I often end up playing on and on.

So the first thing I've done is update 8 Lots previously posted uptopic. I've edited each of those posts with a Bold Red update notice. Pictures have also been updated. A summary of those Lots is also listed below.

I'm going to include direct download links for every Lot, so people don't have to scroll through all my uploads to find the Lot they want. I previously didn't realize how easy it was for me to do that - sorry for the delay.

I'm going to add the abbreviation 'NCC' to the filenames of Lots that contain No Custom Content. I will also mark them as updated, but not in red if there was no actual changes made to the Lot.

That's about it, I think. Here's a summary of the 8 Lots I've updated. The updates range from minor aesthetics to major changes or additions. Again, new pictures if needed are in the posts uptopic:

1- Desert#01Start-1+BR-NCC: Formerly called 'Desert#01Starter-1BR', I gave this Lot a major update by adding a half
    bedroom downstairs. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1015854/

2- Brutalist#03Start-1+BR-NCC: Formerly called 'Brutalist#03Starter-1BR' I gave this Lot a major update by making 3
    separate Lots, each with a different second floor layout. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/999808/

3- Brutalist#04-1BR: A minor aesthetic change to the roof. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/999809/

4- Brutalist#05-1BR: A minor aesthetic change to the roof. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/999810/

5- 3T2#02-1BR: Added an arch to the kitchen/office/dining room entrances (Custom Content) and made a few minor
    aesthetic changes. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/842083/

6- ReduxModernVilla-2BR: Made a minor change to the second floor layout, also with some furniture rearrangements, and
    one minor layout change downstairs. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/832330/

7- ReduxLookingGlass-1+BR-NCC: Formerly called 'ReduxLookingGlass-1+BR', I rearranged some bedroom furniture to
    create a little more space. Also got rid of the steeple, so it looks less like a church.
    Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/832328/

8- ReduxBGTears-1+BR-NCC: Formerly called 'ReduxBGTears-1+BR' I changed the location of the trashcan slightly and made
    a couple of minor aesthetic changes. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/832327/

In addition to these 8, there were also 2 Lots posted uptopic for which I changed their names but made no actual changes to the Lots:

1- Circular#01-5BR-NCC: Was formerly 'Contemporary#07-5BR'. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1042485/
2- Circular#02-2BR-NCC: Was formerly 'Contemporary#08-2BR'. Link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/1042483/
Title: Re: ScaryRob's Lot Uploads to Sims File Share (Pictures and Short Descriptions)
Post by: ScaryRob on September 12, 2020, 03:21:41 AM
In the future, many of my Lots will contain several items of Custom Content, beyond the "Minimal" ones I've posted so far. My SimFileShare uploads have so far been subfoldered to "No CC Lots" and "Minimal CC Lots", to which I will simply add the subfolder "CC Lots". I will arbitrarily define "Minimal CC" as no more than 3 (inclusive) Custom Content items, although that may include large sets such as tiggy027's Metro Windows Set.
This doesn't at all mean I'm done making "No CC" Lots. I still have a backlog of older Lots which I'm pretty sure include "No CC" ones, and I will make more in the future. I will always strive to keep Custom Content to a minimum.

Now, finally, here's a new upload. It's a Lot I made two years ago but didn't get around to testing until yesterday. To me, it has a strong 1960's vibe.

The next five uploads are all Starters, all on shrunken Lots, all built in the style of shipping containers, and all but the last, #05, very small. #01 is under 10k and they get progressively more expensive, with #05 coming in at just under 20k.

Okay, back to prettier stuff, before HL gets upset with me for uglifying her website.

CrocodileCreek-4BR: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/2045690/
Conceptually based on a real-life house called 'Space Frame House', built in Massachusetts in 1961. It reminds me of something one might find in the Australian outback, hence the name. A large house, but everything except the basement is on the same level. Fishing pond, swimming pool, spa, more.

I've updated three older Lots - the Brownstone apartment Lots listed uptopic on page 1 of this thread. The updates are CC versions which have nicer-looking fire escapes and nicer-looking interior stairs. The interior stairs require installation of Numenor's Scriptorium. The No Custom Content versions are still included in the zip downloads. Pix and README's updated.
I've been meaning to do this for a while.

Future apartment Lots that require "Open Underneath" stairs will most likely use CC stairs and require the Scriptorium.
