WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF MAGIC: Harry Potter Collection of Lots!

-----------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT NOTE:
This is NOT a "movie-based" Ministry of Magic with dark walls covering the building (as "cool" as they may look, dark walls underground are almost unbareable for Simming). This version is designed moreso after the book and has been altered to be Sim Friendly and functional! Please keep that in mind.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLECTION
This set includes both residential and commercial lots. There are a total of 25 download pages (with 34 individual files to download) in this collection.

Harry Potter Collection: The Ministry of Magic



LOT INFORMATION
This is a NEW and IMPROVED version of The Ministry of Magic! The first version was 10 levels below ground and was not functional at all. The second version was 5 levels below ground and was functional (at times). After further testing of the lot, the Ministry of Magic was removed from MTS2 for renovation. This new version was built on a 4 x 4 lot and is only 1 level below ground which has improved loading time and game play in a MAJOR way! There are 10 Rooms (Sections) instead of 10 Floors. Each room (section) holds the essence of the perspective floors in The Ministry of Magic. Every room is labeled and decorated to fit Ministry related rooms. Naturally, the Ministry had to be disguised, so it is hidden beneath a London Park which I named Arcanum (a word that implies secrecy). The FLOO NETWORK was also recreated using the London Phone Booth Cover by Maylin, The 1 Tile Ascension V2 Stairs by Targa and the White Fireplace Cover by Mia86. If you downloaded the original version, please DELETE it and replace it with this version. You won't be disappointed! Enjoy the download!

IMPORTANT NOTE: 2 DOWNLOADS AVAILABLE

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
First:
All stephanie b. walls, floors and ground covers included in houses downloaded from MTS2 can be used in lot creations on any free or pay site as long as I receive credit for the textures. Please do not post my textures (walls, floors or groundcovers) or lots on other sites without my permission or reupload them as your own by giving them color face-lifts without giving me credit for the original design. Thank you!

Second:
These lots are creations from my imagination based mainly on excerpts from the books and on-line information. I am basing very little on the movie versions of each place, so don't expect exact replica's of movie versions of the various places in the Magic and Muggle World.

Third:
My vision for this neighborhood is that the students do not "live" in Hogwarts. I see the school as home to only a few teachers (Dumbledore, McGonagall, Trelawney). Everyone else is spread out in either their family homes or in the Summer Houses.

-----------------------------------------------------

Other Information:
THANK YOU!
I owe the deepest of gratitude to all the extraordinary artists whose objects helped to bring my vision of Harry Potter's Magical World to life! Thank you for sharing your time and talent with the Sim community. Thank you to the following artists for helping to bring a little "magic" to the Sim World: Calidan, Maylin, CTNutmegger, Annev, Targa, UK1967, Paleoanth, Crocobaura, XxHalfBloodPrincexX, pfish and JohnBrehaut1. Be sure to browse the links at the end of the post for other fabulous downloads by each artist!

DON'T FORGET TO TURN ON THE LIGHTS!
When you take a Sim to The Ministry of Magic be sure to turn on the lights by clicking on any lamp and selecting "Turn On All Lights". This will bring life to the Ministry of Magic seeing that it is underground!
