About This File

Description:
This is a set of 30 growable R$ Farmhouse lots that are designed to fit in rural settings.
There are two lot sizes - 3x5 and 5x5. The odd lot sizes was intended to ensure that you will have a good chance to grow these lots.  
Be sure to use the shift key and measure out the exact lot size you wish (3x5 or 5x5)
Each lot size has an assortment of lots that vary from Stage 1 to 3.  
The look of the lots mirror the growth stages, with Stage 1 lots containing 1 or 2 houses, while stage 2 and 3 lots are more developed.
As always, prop families are used exensivly and you will not see the same lot appear twice.   
These 'farmhouses' will only grow on the Chicago tile set (growth stages 1-3).

BSC Textures Pack CycleDog Vol 1
BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol01

wmp_fence_props03.dat
wmp_garden_props02.dat
KrashSpeed Mailbox Set
Maxis bldgprop_vol1.dat & bldgprop_vol2.dat (everyone should have these)
   

Installation:
Simply unzip the file and put the entire 'SimCougs R$ Farmhouses' folder in your plugins (don't forget the dependencies).  


Developer notes: 
I know, I know, you are all thinking "Holy stinkin' propbarf Batman!"  
Yes, I realize the dependency list is extensive, but I like details on my lots, and these prop and texture packs have been hand-picked to offer the greatest bang for the buck.
As always, prop families were used extensively, so I guarantee you will not find the exact same lot twice (and if you do, you should buy a lotto ticket).
These lots were put together with my CJ 'New SorGun' in mind, so they have more historical/rural feel but they will not look out of place in your rural areas.
These lots look best when used in conjunction with other rural SC4 resources (like farm fields, orchards, etc).      


Support:
For questions regarding this set, please feel free to visit my Lot Development Thread (SimCoug's Lot Den).


Special Thanks:
An extra special thanks goes out to krashspeed for allowing me to use and distribute his rural baskebtall hoop prop.
Thanks to OP4 for creating the BLAM blank, which was used as the model for these lots.
Thanks to the great BATers who generously shared their creations - this set would not be possible without them.  
Also, thanks for the gang over at SimPeg for all the suggestions and encouragement.

Super pretty, can't wait to add these to my farming towns.

Can you recommend / link to any specific content, when you say "These lots look best when used in conjunction with other rural SC4 resources (like farm fields, orchards, etc)"?

The SPAM mod would be the main thing that jumps in my head.  Many of the props used in that mod are also used on my lots.  Same with all of jmyers farm stuff.  Hopefully that will get you started.  Thanks for the kind words :)

Haha, yeah... talk about procrastinating.  *:lol:
You could actually trace the beginnings of this project back to one of my early CJ entries.  It went through a number of revisions, but it has been a long time coming *:)

I don't really know what to say as it not only requires too many dependencies BUT you need to have ANOTHER account to download these!  As if one account isn't enough.  

Warning to folks wanting to download the dependencies:  You need to register both here and at SC4 Devotion to complete the download and their form register may or may not work.

It's very easy to get rid of the dependencies. Just open the lots in LE and delete every thing you don't like.

@SimCity Picciune,
Yes, you do need an account on SC4Devotion on order to gather the massive list of dependencies.  I think I mentioned something to that effect on some of my early uploads, but this community has been around for so long I just stopped mentioning it because I figured everybody already knew about SC4Devotion and had an account there.  But the way I see it, I did you a huge favor because there are so many amazing gems on the LEX, it will open up a whole new world of SC4 content. *:lol:
