This download is part of the Medieval Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This small medieval fortress is somewhat derelict. Parts of ramparts are crumbling and the well is infested with frogs.



Otherwise is this place perfectly livable. It features 3 bedrooms (one of them meant for a servant), a miniature sunken nursery, a kitchen/dinning area and a cellar. A bathroom is located inside the ramparts that you can climb and spy on your neighbour lords from a watchtower or sit by a fire during a night-watch. You can even train hand-to-hand combat at the courtyard but if the enemy ever proved too strong, there´s always an escape path leading to woods... (or wherever else you place this lot).

This is my entry for the Medieval Challenge and my first upload here. I hope you like it. (The lot was build with patch 2.3.33)

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.

Vera J, someone has hacked the Sims Crossing website and placed an Exploit on it so it cannot be accessed safely. Do you have a way of contacting the moderators/owners so that they can be made aware and remove the threat?

The Sims Crossing download link works fine for me (no antivirus-warning or anything), I will nevertheless contact them as soon as (if...?) I get their e-mail address.

Anyway, thanks for the nice comments everyone! I was actually a bit nervous about what acceptance will my lot get around here. I am so glad you like it! (Visiting castles and ruins is a great hobby of my father, so I grew up seeing hundreds of such places. Medieval theme is exactly my cup of tea, so I couldn´t resist to join the challenge.

(And I have looked up the Stokesay Manor and yeah, it´s the kind of building I had in mind when building this lot.)

I absolutely love this! BUT my game isn't patched to this version as I don't want to lose my custom content . If I beg with a pretty please would it be possible for you to make this as a .package file? Pleeeasssee?
