Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Gilgolem Castle - Playable Tomb Adventure

Game Version:
Lot Size: 64 x 64
Lot Type: Hidden Tomb
Lot Price: $258,109
Lot Price Unfurnished: $100,070
Required Expansions: World Adventures, Night Life, Showtime, Supernatural, Island Paradise
Required Additional Store Content: Dragon Valley (GOLD Version), Midnight Hollow (GOLD Version), Wood Fire Oven

NOTE:: Gilgolem Castle has been thoroughly tested to make sure that all traps are working. That being said, I do not recommend placing two copies of this lot in the same world. Doing so causes an error with the warp wells. I successfully killed at least one sim while testing because of this. Also, Gilgolem Castle is a HUGE lot with plenty to render. Please make sure you are playing on a system that can support the graphics.

If anyone encounters a pathing problem please let me know so I can correct it; and as always, if there are enough requests I may upload a non-tomb and store free version of this lot for those who wish to use it as a residential lot.

UPDATE 11/23/13: I have added a second copy of Gilgolem Castle. This version does not require any store content.

UPDATE 12/01/13: The residential version of this lot can be downloaded here. Gilgolem Castle - Residential

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.

RE the bug report about the SN pedestals; I stumbled upon this mod when I was looking for something else. I never even noticed they were incorrectly categorized before, I hardly ever use pedestals. It made me wonder though if they were categorized as decor on purpose because they aren't swipeable like actual pedestals? I've not tested that theory but thought I'd mention it in case you were going crazy trying to figure out why they weren't working They might just need to be replaced with actual pedestals.

Whoa! This castle is just awesome! I love tomb adventures - not only to play them but also to build them - you did a great job on this one. I'll bookmark this so that I can get back to it as soon as I'll have enough time playing Sims 3 again. Thank you for sharing with us. :)

I don't have Showtime, but I'm raring to play this beautiful castle - is the Showtime content an essential part of this lot, or is it something that could be hand-waved and the lot would still work as intended? Either way, thanks for the brilliant upload, and keep up the good work, you are a real inspiration.
