This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Tucked away in a corner of the jungles of Simlandia, this house lies in wait for the perfect sim to retreat to its lofty heights. The tree house features 3 huts (kitchen, living area, and bedroom) connected with swing bridges. There is a winding moat to help keep those pesky other sims away. The all-in-one toilet takes the place of a full bathroom, while tending to all of your sim's needs.

Note: I have play tested this lot and did not run into any significant lagging, however, I would not recommend this lot for people with lower-end computers, unless you choose to get rid of some of the plants. As a heads up, the loading time when switching from Live Mode to Buy/Build for this lot is fairly long (at least on my computer).

I have all EPs installed up through Into the Future. If you don't have one of the EPs the objects from that EP will either be missing or replaced. I highly recommend having Island Paradise and World Adventures for the plants and all-in-one toilet.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

Absolutely gorgeous! The landscaping is beautiful and the house itself is very creative. I don't know when I'll be able to use it, but I can't wait to. I may just have to set up a special game, just to use this house. I know this must have taken quite some time to build, so thank you for sharing.
