Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
----- General talk -----

No this isn't another of all of these fairytale or medieval castles you see everywhere, but a little more regular and still magnificent one. I searched the castles on MTS just to see that my idea wasn't already built, and it seem that it is pretty unique. (at least hope so)
Why did I decide to build a castle? Well, even though it's beyond my modern house "image", I wanted show you that I got a wider repertoire.

The more I build in The Sims 3, the more I hate it... I wish EA could hire some real builders, so they can say what needs to be improved! I'm sure a lot of people even would do that for free.

Even so, despite this everlasting struggle, I once again managed to complete another Sims 3 project.

People that have been following my work through the eras of Sims, might have noticed a certain change after the Sims 3 release. No, I have not abandoned the modern design, it's just a coincidence that I have felt like doing other projects.

But for now, enjoy Grothfort Castle!

----- Story -----

Wherever there is a castle, there is a king. And whenever there is a king, there is a struggle, a country that needs to be protected. This time however, our mighty king travelled abroad, into a new world across the English channel, seeking to overtake some more lands. But as soon as he entered the French countryside, it was love in first sight. The king said:

"I shall erect a castle upon this very hill, in honour of every single tree, rock, cloud and bird in sight".

The King forgot all of his malevolent plans of gaining more power, instead he lived happily ever and after.

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.

Has this happened to anyone else by chance?

I downloaded and yes, this has happened to me. It have modified / changed the interior and everything and the land keeps on changing to apartments. I have deleted the skip level that was on the right side of the building but random people keeps on moving in. :/ Every time I play the saved game, it keeps changing back to apartments. *sigh* I might to delete it..
