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.

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.

That is awesome, it looks so like the real thing. The night is beautiful. Thanks!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

It is beautifully done :clap:

However, I do hope that you can compress the file to reduce the traffic and the cost of MTS2.

My apology to MTS2 for the oversight when I had submitted the file. The download file is now in a compressed format.
