Mini House Kit

I saw a picture of a little house on wheels. They can come in pretty much any size and shape anyone would want. Since I can't afford one (they start at $15,000.00) I decided I wanted to try to make one for my sims. Since making an actual, functional mini house is easy enough I put my thinking cap on. I thought to myself "How can I make this little house look like the one in the picture I saw?" Well, here's the answer.

There are 9 meshes in this kit. A wheel that can be placed on either side, a license plate/tail light combination, a single tail light, a triple tail light, a support, 3 edge-type meshes (left, right and middle) to place behind the license/tail light combinations and a hitch. Check the Pic Spam! page for more pics and ideas!








Different pieces are slaved to others so:
The license plate/tail light combo is the MASTER of the single and triple tail lights. You MUST have the license plate/tail light combo for the single/triple tail lights to work in game.
The floor support is a SLAVE of the Upright Column.
The edgers are SLAVES of the Upright Column.

Placement:
Everything but the floor support can be placed without cheats. You do need to use "moveobjects on" to place the floor support under the decking.

I do believe that's it. See screenshots for ideas and how-to's. If you have any questions, feel free to ask- but this kit is really easy to use. And the best part is that the little houses are fully functional. :) A residential collection file is included in the .rar- place that in your Collections folder and the rest in your Downloads folder. A mud-spattered recolor is included for everything but the floor support and edgers.

Notes:
Since all these pieces are meant to be used outdoors, I removed all references to shadows in SimPE while creating them.
The license/tail light combo is meant for the left and the single for the right. The triple can/could go anywhere. They're all placed within the footprint to place at a certain spot.
All meshes can be found in Deco>Misc and cost 5 simoleons.
The edgers and floor support don't have thumbnails, I tried to fix this and failed. (The collection file would come in handy for this!)

  4. this is a very cute idea. sometimes i prefer smaller homes more, because it's so much easier to navigate through them ))) plus, my computer doesn't freeze. so with this set I would probably have more of such cute little and original houses. Thanks, you have a nice blog. Keep coming up with cool ideas!!
