This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


I started this lot in December I think, and thought it would be a perfect spooky castle for a family of Vampires. The 3 graves on the lot are of the wealthy Dracule's of Romania. The count, countess, and their son all died tragically as a large swarm of flies recently descended upon the property (:P). The lot has 2 "crypts" with coffins for a vampire, 4 other bedrooms, and a servants quarters. There are formal sitting areas, a family room, study, music room, tea room, chess area, and various little seating niches throughout the halls.

This is on a 5x5 (large) lot and it costs §550.057.

I hope everyone enjoys this lot!!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Are you sure that it requires OFB? I tried to install it with the Sims 2 Body Shop Package Installer (the one that came with the game) just to see if it let me do it and it did!!! I think this installer is supposed to pop a message like this: "The custom content you are trying to install requires an Expansion Pack not installed in your computer". I have UNI, NL and PETS, no OFB and I could install it without the Sims 2 Pack Clean Installer.

Well I used OFB while building it, I'm positive of that. Have you tried playing the lot yet? It may crash when you try to enter the lot.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! :D

Wow! That is one amazing looking lot. You've done a really fantastic job here and it definitely deserves to be featured. Well done!

I would love to download it and have it in my game but I fear that it would slow down my game far to much. If ever you decide to build a smaller sized lot but in a similar vein, I would love to have it in my game .

Well, I haven't play with it but I have enter the lot in build mode (no sims living in it) and it didn't crashed.
Plus, I have installed lots that require an EP I don't have (ie: a house with a drive way when I didn't have NL) with the Pack Clean Installer and when I tried to place it in the neighborhood the game crashed. But when I tried to install it with the game installer it didn't let me to do it.
