Important : before placing the tomb, change the lot type to "Landmark Tomb"

IMPORTANT! ONLY V 2.1 NEEDS AMBITIONS!

Important:The first version still stays, and it doesn't need ambitions EP, but With Ambitions V 2.1 have special stuff as the guide lights, which failed in last version.


(please put the tomb here)

History of the tomb:

For years, the temple was hidden in the sands, but the dragon doesn't forget his temple, now the temple has risen upon the sand...


The one that built the start of the temple was the dragon himself, but it was discovered by ancient monks from China that came to learn about the sands, but they found their new god… The Desert Dragon, a furious dragon with golden scales, and eyes in the color of the Nile, his hands were red like stone, and sand came out from his tail…



The monks had started building a temple for him, but when they finished, the Terracotta army came to take their research about the sands, the dragon had no choice then burring the temple, now the danger has passed… or not?

About the tomb:

The tomb is hard, but the riddles won't be too much tricky, they will guide you to the end, this tomb is my first upload but I know that it's good, even I found myself stuck, but I managed to find the thing that stuck me.



The tomb has 2 ends: The top and the underground garden. both ends has great prizes, the garden "maze" is small but tricky, but the upper end is big and even dangerous.



The next Tomb will be hard to upload, cause it has like 9 floors, and i can use 8 pictures >.<

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: 257,452
(you don't need to pay )

Additional Credits:
Thank to MTS2 staff for telling me and teaching me how to upload files.

For questions, that inspired me to V 2.1!

For the uploaders for not uploading a lot of tombs.

And for me, Niro, for making such a great tomb! :D

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.

Thanks! I've been hoping to see more tombs get released. I'm working on one, but it's pretty extensive and I'm not even close to being done as I keep stopping to build other lots. :P

Also, sorry to disappoint, but the place you have it on the map, I use for another tomb I got from here. It will have to go elsewhere. :P

Thanks, again. Look forward to delving into it's depths. Did you put mummies? I need to kick more mummy butt. :P

there are mummies, but as a trap, and don't worry about place, after you finish a tomb you can delete it, anyway there are more 40x40 lots.

today i almost finished my next next tomb, it filled with 2 underground floor and special surprise...

thank you for the comment!

I am about to download your creation. Thank you for adding to the game. This may be a dumb question, but I'll ask it anyway: are there any missions attached to it? or to any custom tomb?

Can you make a guide for this tomb? Cuz I can't figure a way to unlock the doors in the lower floor and the top floor.

Thanks.

if you want help i can send you a PM with some parts, but one big hint for you, LOOK AT THE WALLS! there is a riddle for almost everything, expect parts of the underground, but if you look more carefully, you will find your way.

Anyway i have 2 tombs waiting, and it seems that they both have no problem anymore! a tomb for Valentines (that was not submitted) and a tomb for one of our enemy(or not) The Grim Reaper, that will be a replacement tomb for your Sims!

Thank you,
from Niro.

I downloaded your tomb and tried it. It is done very nice, however your traps should have the glowing orbs that show "what is being released or opened". I would pull a handle or step on a location, but no idea as to what it was unlocking.

I just got a short ways in the temple, my character had to exercise to build up to open the door nice touch btw to have the exercise room there. But I love what I have seen so far. I really like the colors. white instead of dull grey. You have done a very good job. I really like the touch with the wall plaques for the clues. I can't wait to go back and finish it up. I ran out of time for my trip. Thanks for sharing this with us. I can't do these tombs yet, and I am really glad to see some new ones.

I can't put this star-shaped key into its hole in the last room... I have removed the stones that blocked it, but my sim complains that there are stones who block his way. But there are no stones anymore.
I have version 2.1 of your tomb.

I had the same problem, when I used the testingcheatsenabled chat to remove the remaining rubble it finally allowed me to.

This was built with game version 4.9 but does it work for the last one (8.0)? And I am asking this for both your created tombs ( graveyard and dragon ) because they both look great.

Sims 3 system only improving, cause of that these tombs that are out of date still are usable, altough, lots with certain things such as glitches might have a problem, because sims 3 system update mostly fix the glitches, anyways, I'm going to try and make a new tomb, my last tomb I tried to upload was considered as-"too pink", and since my computer broke I lost all my in-making tombs, so now i'm with my laptop making a new tomb!

I'll probably try to release something either on zelda or either on fantasy theme, hopefully I'll become a featured creator!

Hey, I want a pink tomb! I'm sad that the moderators rejected it because of something so subjective as color scheme. Do you use any other site to upload your creations? If you still have the pink one, I'd like to play it Your other tombs have been awesome, and I'm so happy we have a dedicated tomb builder in the community.
