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.

Great house! Only how did you do the court yard? When ever I try that I get a huge roof or shadow.

The courtyard isn't completely closed in by walls. If you close any interior place in, the game thinks it's a room. I left a small spot in the back of the castle open by using a fence and gate instead of walls.

dude, the caste is awesome, but...
1) If you want to make it look like the Bran Castle, Vlad the Impaler's castle before he moves to Bucharest, try to make it look more white.
2) To make it look Romanian change its name : "Castelul Bran" or "Castelul lui Dracula" or "Castelul lui Vlad Tepes"

The message on the download is unclear to me, is everything included or do I need to track down the custom content myself?

Everything is included, you don't need to track anything down.

OMGCD!! (Oh My Grilled Cheese Deity) This is by far the best lot I have seen! I like how you used the building cheats and you made the bridg (did i spell that right?) so smooth!! And the cort yard!! I just can find words so I think I'll bring out the smiles!!



It's just sad that I can't see the true potential of it due to my crappy computer not being able to take the fact that have all the EP & Stuffs as well as haveing over 100 sims!!

LONG LIVE THE GRILLED CHEESE DEITY!!

I hear you there Aishia. I've given up trying to play this lot myself because it just lags way too much on my computer to be fun. Hopefully I'll get an upgrade this Christmas and I'll be able to actually play some of my own lots!
