Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A symbol of patriotic France, here is the Arc de Triomphe, rising from the center of the Place Charles de Gaulle. Simply made, I had created this more as a scenic backdrop for my Parisian Sims, however it is fully furnished. At its base lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, with its Flame of Remembrance, and within is the small attic museum displaying the background and architectural history of the arch. There is also an observation deck at its apex.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Sorry to read that you're having some difficulty with the download/install of the lot. Have you tried installing the lot with Clean Installer (found here: http://sims2pack.modthesims2.com/ )? If you have, try this approach:

1) Using Clean Installer, install only the objects and not the Arc itself.
2) Load the Sims 2 and enter your neighborhood and then exit it, closing the game.
3) Empty the Teleport folder, which is found in the directory MyDocuments\EAGames\TheSims2\Teleport
4) Using Clean Installer again, install the Arc only.

Hope this helps you.

I just downloaded the file, unzipped it and installed the lot. The zip file seems fine. I would suggestion redownloading it and opening it one more time.

I am having some trouble getting this to show up in my game. I've been working on it for an hour now, and the problem seems to be the custom content improperly installing from the teleport folder. I can get the lot package to show up (with blank walls and no custom content) if I use a manual install (rename cx_package), but even if I install the custom content separately using Clean Installer, it lags my lot loading until the process freezes. This also applies to any other lot in my game-- nothing will load until I remove the custom content.

I know this thread is very old, and you may have even moved on to Sims 3 (most have), but any help/suggestions you have for us old school Simmers looking to jimmy with programming would be much appreciated.

Any rate, thank you much for what appears to be an awesome lot! I really want to play it or I wouldn't have spent so long trying to get it to work. <3

Amazing job, but for some reason when I installed this, it prevented ANY lots from loading in my game. Had to remove it, unfortunately.
