Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Finally, it's done. My project I worked on since october. I couldn't finish it before halloween :P

It's a haunted medieval/victorian castle. It's huge and very detailled.
Something I could live in honestly!

At floor 1 you can find:

1. Entrance
2. Hall
3. Conservatory
4. Diningroom
5. Library
6. Livingroom
7. Kitchen
8. Graveyard/garden
9. Garden

At floor 2 you can find:

11. Hall
12. Playingroom
12. Master bedroom
14. Tower-room

At floor 3 you can find:

15. X
16. Livingroom
17. Nursery
18. Bedroom


- There are NO store packs used, except for the statue. I just couldn't resist using it. But the victorian pack is NOT necessarily!
- DON'T use the 'freerealestate' cheat. Your sims will have too little money to pay the castle, and the game can't handle such debt!
First, buy an other lot and use the 'motherlode' cheat 4 times. Then, move your sims into the castle.
- Special thanks to Lemoncandy and VoiceIHear for their CC!
- Everything is tested, and everything works as it should work
- The diamonds, seeds, butterflies and other things you can collect are first collected by me. Followed by placing them into the lot.

Persons: 4
Sort: Residential
Costum content used: Studie clutter and Creeping Ivy by Lemoncandy, Buyable graves by VoiceIHear

I hope you enjoy!


Lot Size: 6x6
Lot Price: 192,914

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: Build and Buy Mode Content
Furnishings: Fully Furnished

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'm glad you like it! :D
Honestly, the lot looks 10 times better in game than on the pics.
And I could only submit a small amount of images.

I'm not seeing anything. Can you please print-screen it and send a picture of the rectangle to me? ( or via MTS.

This is perfect for my story: the "evil witch-queen" castle (now if only I could have that "evil thunderstorm" look, like from the cartoons)
