Story of the Inventor's mansion

Once upon a time there was a man who dedicated his whole live to science - Albert Simstein. His head was filled with ideas of new inventions and his house was full of crazy machines.

Albert had a big dream. Since his childhood no one really took him seriously. Adults were just shaking their heads and whispering about how strange this child was and other children never wanted to be friends with little Albert. He spent most of his time alone only with piles of scrap dreaming about a big invention which would amaze the whole world.

Albert was very talented and soon he became a succesful inventor. One day, while working on a rather difficult project something went wrong and half of his house kind of exploded...The explosion caused a big damage to the neighbors and they wanted him to pay for the reparations.

Because of the lack of money Albert was forced to do something crazy. He decided to try transmuting objects into gold - and guess what happened? Yes he transmuted himself so now his house is here ready for auction!

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.

So.. The guy turns himself into solid gold; so they put his house up for auction with him still in it? Sheesh, they really didn't like him at all. XD

This is a really cool looking place; I can't wait to play in it! :D

This quite obviously took a lot of time and effort. I'd say it looks gorgeous, but since the look you were going for isn't supposed to be pretty, I'll just say it looks enticingly delapidated ;-)

I am off-line for one day and this is what happens? I cant put it into words just how happy I am. When I got a star I almost had a heart attack but being featured? Wow MTS you sure are trying to kill me right?

Well I hope my poor dead inventor is happy now. Even thought they didnt like him at least it seems like people really like his house:P

Thank you so much for the support you are giving me, and the time you spent on writing these lovely comments!!! You people are amazing And Tigerdyhr you are the BEST!:P
