Hi folks,

I present you Zelda Castle (from Ocarina of Time)

I have to tell you some things about this lot first, because it's not like my others.

- Thanks to Revenger who asked me if I would help him rebuild the "Zelda - Ocarina of Time" - world. You can find his thread here Zelda World.
- So my part was to build Zelda Castle, it was planed to be a special feature of the world.
The lot wasn't meant to be playable, just a nice decoration and visitable lot in the world.
Revenger and me worked together. He was responsible for the main hall, big tower, the arboretum and basic underground work.
- Also thanks to Simmiller for advices. She works on the Deku-Tree and world.

Anyway. There wasn't too much progress since february, so I decided to release the castle now.
It's fully furnished and playable.
I tried to stay as close as possible to the original. (see picture with original game screenshots).
If you ever played this game on the N64, you'll remember the obstacle-way to get inside the castle. You can take this way on my lot, too.

Hint:
When you place the lot in your world, have a close look at the ground painting,.. if you feel it doesn't look right, then please turn the lot around before placing! That's a general problem when placing lots with ground paint, it has nothing to do with my lot.

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.

@The Don of Louisville
- Yes World Adventures IS REQUIRED, because of the traps and levers,...
I didn't show them on the pictures, there's a tomb to discover
