~~Tiny little update 6/18/19: two of the sprinklers needed pulled forward a few pixels in order to actually work

Welcome to the Glass Castle. Originally built over four centuries ago, this impressive edifice is now the home of the illustrious Lady Sokol and her family. The guided tour begins now. Please stay with the group. And should you notice any mysterious lights floating around the castle, for your own safety: do not attempt to make contact.

Phew! This lot. Every time I think I'm done I start fussing over another area. And then the furniture needs retested and the pictures need retaken and oy! You would not believe some of the features that were last minute additions. The arched bridge and stairs in the tower for one. It used to be even harder for sims to get around.

Just a few notes

--If you believe in pedestrian things like "privacy" and "sleeping past sunrise" you might end up retro-fitting the dressing room into the master bedroom (It has just enough room for a double bed: put it an extra quarter-tile towards the mirror-wall) --see image--

--Constrainfloorelevation false was used for the trellis over the driveway, the roof decor on the play house, the arched bridge, and the lamp post and wall beside the hot tub.
--Moveobjects was used extensively and tons of things aren't snapped to grid, but the furniture works. Except you can’t “tinker” on the hot tub. Also sims can't grab toys off dressers for some reason, so you will have to put the boat and robot on the floor if you want kids to use them. I like putting them on the dresser so a tidy sim won't come along and "helpfully" put them away.
--If they’re stamping their foot trying to get in the hot tub, make them “go here” to the top of the little stair, then they will be able to get in. But they usually manage without help.
--There aren't actually that many floors, or that many rooms. But there is a lot of decor, especially plants, so it may run slowly on some machines
--The burglar alarm is in the garage
--There is one phone in the downstairs living room. One hidden inside the dream catcher in the den. One down the hall from the music room. And one on the roof in the little tower with red curtains.
--There are sprinklers above the stove and robot crafting and both BBQs and also inside all three fireplaces. Just chalk it up to water magic.

--In case you don't know this trick for when a sloped floor/ceiling is messed up and spiky looking: make a flat square nearby in the same floor tile and hold ctrl-shift to delete all the problem tiles. Then press undo and they reappear in perfect shape. --see image--

A copy of the lot was play tested, but please message me if you run into any problems
