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.

Thank you all SO much for the positive feedback. When I was builiding this thing, I got to a point that I realized I might have bitten off more than I cold chew...and I almost gave up. Now I am glad that I didnt.

Oh wow, looks amazing, and since tombs don't fully reset, it's going to be great to have new ones to explore! I bet this would still work if turned into a community lot in Egypt, for Sims to just visit and explore?

Yes...you could totally do that. Just place it and switch lot type....I guess it would make the most comfortable base camp ever...lol.

It's an eye candy from outside. The typical low leveled squared shaped upper crust architecture of the orient. Well captured. I also enjoy the striking and in-themed interior. Will have fun with this one! Thank you for the share

If you would create something, you must be something.

There is a heart keystone on the floor next to the stairs that goes in the wall in that room....the wall that you enter that room, as a matter of fact. You can soak your sim to get through the fire and then a plaque on the far wall will turn them off once you read it.

I just tried to do that while placing the the lot in Sunset Valley at 15 Summer Hill Court (the 60-x60 lot size near the Landgraab Estate and opposite Summer Hill Springs. I got the following message:

"Some objects at 15 Summer Hill Court are not allowed on community lots. In order to change 15 Summer Hill Court into a community lot these objects will be deleted if you proceed."

I left it as a residential lot because I wasn't sure if the tomb objects would be affected.

I also miss the old days of the Sims 2 where you could just plonk the lot down on the appropriate-sized lot and make any changes you wanted without having to Edit the Town first.

I like this house, I have it in Egypt as a community lot and use it as a Hotel for my rich. The objects that dissapear for sure when you change it to a community lot is the stove.

I did modify the lot after transfering it so it's more hotel like but still, you realy did a great job on this, I could never have managed to decorate or build anything so pretty.

I have not yet explored the tomb, because none of the sims who have used it are the exploring type. The only "bug" I found so far is that the computer upstairs, is un-usable because the chair is not alligned correctly to the desk.
