This mansion has it's name from The Rosetta Stone, it held the key to understanding ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.

According to wikipedia: The Rosetta Stone is a granodiorite stele inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis, Egypt, in 196 BC on behalf of King Ptolemy V. The decree appears in three scripts: the upper text is Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the middle portion Demotic script, and the lowest Ancient Greek. Because it presents essentially the same text in all three scripts (with some minor differences among them), it provided the key to the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs.

Rosetta Mansion

The Rosetta Mansion is a massive mansion in heavy dark concrete with gold and funky bright colors. I made it in moody orange and vibrant blue light in some parts. It's a partymansion as has turned out to be my main concern, never to be bored



The Spa should be a favorite for many

Basement

The basement where the spa is has an underground garage, spa with hottub, sauna, gym, bar, LN dancefloor, laundry, 2 fountains/gardens, cave bar, several showers.

The room above is from buildmode. I have used lots of invisible lights to give this house a moody or vibrant feel in nighttime. In daytime it's more neutral. Just for the fun of it I counted the room in this mansion and got to 44 rooms, not counting hallways and half rooms. It has 5 bedrooms ensuite and 1 nursery.

Main Floor

Contains a double bedroom with nursery, kids room, shuffleboard/games room, kitchen, diningroom, livingroom, library,



Second Floor:

Contains 4 bedroom ensuite, included the Master suite with bath and dressingroom, mediaroom, biljard room with music,

The Garden:

Contains BBQ with table, 2 pools, fountain with statue, view plattform, decking.

Technical:

It's been built in my world Castle Island V2, it has a sloped lot 50x50 on the mountain top. If you won't download the world as well, but want to use a finished world, you have to make sure you have room for the low entrance of the house. You will need at least 1 regular floor below street level, and be prepared for some ground work.

You may want to lower or lift the house before you place it using the cheat code "setimportedterrainoffset 2" Just replace the number with something below or above 0 to make the house drop of lift from streetlevel when you place it. The cheat consol will be visible once you press buttons ctrl+shift+C on most computers.

I tried during testing to keep Una, my tester, out of the front very low pool, but with no success. The cheat code "resetsim Una Froscati" worked wonders when she started bugging up. You just replace the name of my sim with yours, you have to use all the names of your sim.

From the patio infront of the low entrance to the edge of the lot, is 11 tiles, the rest of the house sits on a foundation. That many tiles should give you room for it to sit on a flat lot, but I haven't tested it so I can't give you any promises
