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.
Built for the Medieval Challenge. My first MTS Challenge! I'm so excited to bring you my Castle. I had a lot of fun building this.

*The only CC used are Walls, Floors and Terrain Paint. The windows on the balcony are wallpaper and not functional.

I started with a flat lot, then raised the terrain.

There are no Alarms or Phones. The unfurnished basement would make a great place for your Vamps. My poor old computer was complaining so much, I couldn't add the dungeon that I wanted to.





Download and enjoy, but please do not reupload to any site.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs.

It's evident that a lot of effort went into this.
Thanks for sharing.

This allows me to see into the minds of people! That's right, I can actually see what they're thinking!
So long as what they're thinking is exactly what I think they're thinking.

This is how - in my opinion - a castle should look like. Great!

great castle! your custom walls make it special and unique
I'm curious though, how did you manage to get the courtyard lit? I mean, when I make the exterior walls in my castles, the space surrounded by them gets dark... and yours looks full light!!

Thanks everyone, for all of your nice comments.

lauralaima, I left a wall out behind the stairs leading to the balcony. You don't notice it unless you look for it.
