Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
An old dream house now into ruins, this is the home where the lady Sheila drew her last breath. As years went by, the house fell into a state of decay, and it has become the source of unease and fear for its neighbours. Will your Sim dare to live here?

I figured it was time for something different. This home is wrecked, broken down to its foundations and all-around spooky to live in - yet you can! If your Sims are brave enough, this home offers a good sized living for two, with any comforts they may need.

Just do better than my testing Sim, Sheila Showoff, who actually died while testing this lot. The name of it shouldn't come as a surprise now, should it?

On the outside, we find a few distinct area's - though, distinct.. Their remains are obvious. Among others, you find a wrecked garage, the ruins of a once-gorgeous terrace (which is still usable!), and an overgrown sanctuary for the man carrying Sheila's plumbob - how much good that did her, remains to be seen..

The inside brings even more decay and ruin, with a withered living room and kitchen combination, a rusty old bathroom and a bedroom that should surely cause some nightmares. Mind you, despite all the decay, this is still fully functional.

We've reached the end of this little tour now, then. In closing, a word of thanks to guatla for his amazing Paint On Paint pattern set, and to (of course!) Sheila Showoff, whoms wonderful couch-potatoe-ness will never be forgotten.

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.

I don't even play TS3 anymore, but I'm tempted to download this just to see it in game. Amazing job!

Simply double-click the Sims3pack file, and the game launcher will pop up; it appears under 'Downloads'. Use the launcher to install it, and you can find it in 'Edit town' mode under the 'Empty lots'.

Also, I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this forum. ;q

Whoo hoo I like playing teens living on their own struggling to make it, having a teen hide out here would be fun. And it looks SOOOO creepy. Great job!

Is Shelias grave still on the packaged lot?
I was thinking of putting this lot on the empty plot by the waterfall fishing hole and designating it "community" so that my sims could explore an abandoned house there.. but it would be really cool if the house was actually haunted too!
Just wondering if it came haunted or not.
Either way this is an amazing lot!

Nice work. Very nice to see something that stands out amongst the plethora (which there are too many of and most of what is made people could just make themselves if they were so inclined) of houses.

Again, very good work. I will certainly be downloading and using this.
