Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
It looks like and old cemetary and those who dont know might look in the chapel and leave. But others will take the path to the left and find the mausoleum in the back and descend into the Crypt Club. Gothic gloom at its best, the club offers a stage/band area, dance floors, darts, foosball, bars, and a luxe VIP lounge with a hot tub and coffin for a quick catnap. 30x30 lot size. NO CC.



A few store items were used decoratively, but not needed.

This item is free from the store: http://store.thesims3.com/productDe...FB-SIM3%3A19302


Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: $164,622

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 was unable to place it on any pre-made lot in Barnacle Bay. When I selected a lot and changed its zoning from residential to vampire lounge and then went to place it the lot, all the lots in fact, became unselectable. This could be a problem with Barnacle Bay. On the other hand I could add a lot and then place the club, but then it didn't look right.

I will try it in some of the other neighborhoods.

Feedback: My sims and the npcs want to go to the crypt on the hill when they arrive. Due to the limited access provided by the stairs up to it, they tend to get frustrated and leave when on outings. Any ideas on how alleviate this? Thanks again it's a beautiful club.

Try bulldozing the lot again. For some reason, even when you have the lot designated as a vampire lounge, this will happen. If you bulldoze it again, it "resets" the lot and it will say "visitors not allowed" or something like that and have a slightly different icon. You can then place the lot.

Hmmm....I did not experience this. I playtested quite a bit for pathing and while I was taking pix I had a group of 8 there as well as the random townies that showed up....everyone wandered into the club just fine. I did have one sim that preferred to sit in the chapel and read...the party pooper.

Had you tried directing them by clicking on the ground in the club itself? Maybe they just need that extra nudge?

I think my problem might be from sending them there from the map view. If I send them to a spot near the club and then 'click' on the floor of the club like you suggest, maybe that will sidestep the problem I'm having.

@ Gethane. It sounds as if you are describing that irritating triangle rip. It generally means there is a lot of pull on the graphics in that particular area. IE You have a lot of lots around it. Try placing it on the edge of town and see if that clears it up a bit.

@ Ruthless KK THANK YOU. I am way to impatient to make something so gorgeous! Thank you for the obvious amount of time and care you put into this lounge.
