Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The city church St Mary is situated on 415 Skyborough Bvd. It is the perfect place for your Sims to celebrate a wedding or a funeral. In the small graveyard your Sims can burry their dead and go there to mourne.

Besides the church is a small park with a lily pond, a party area with a music pavillon for dancing. Sims can serve a buffet for their guests. Even toilets are provided.

Spiritual Sims can go to the church to light a candle, to pray, to confess or to simply read their bible.
Celebrate with your loved ones!



Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: $47,955

Important:
This church can only be placed on a community lot!

HOW TO THROW A WEDDING PARTY


1. The Sims who are going to mary should be engaged and in romantic mood.
2. Let one of them use the mobile phone and choose "Throw party at ..." in the menu.
3. Choose St. Mary as destination on the map.
4. The "Destination Party" Menu pops up. Choose the sims you want to see at your wedding party.
5. Let bride and groom stand in front of the altar. (Go here)
6. If they are engaged and in a loving mood the option "Ask to marry" should be available. The wedding starts enjoy it, although you won't be able to throw rice.
7. Go to the buffet and choose "Serve".
8. Turn on the music in the pavillon.
And they lived happily ever after!

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.

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.

Lovely work....sure could use it, also. I'm hoping that EA brings back the wedding arch from TS2.....community weddings are fun to have. Thank you for sharing your beautiful church!!

Yeah, I wonder why they didn't do that. Perhaps they researched weddings more and the current wedding options more neutral. An altar usually is meant for Christian wedding rituals (and Jewish)... uh actually I think I need to do some research of my own... but feel free to educate me (so I can further limit my ignorance).

Me too. And I do hope they bring back the possibility to bath babies. I used that in "The Sims 2" to have a working baptistery. I really miss that.

Is there a thread here where we can post what we want EA to implement?

I guess EA probably wanted to keep it neutral, because not everybody is christian. And that is alright with me. One of the things I like best about "The Sims" is that we can build whatever we want, if we want to have it in our game.

Did you place it at 415 Skyborough Blvd or somewhere else?

Does anybody else have the same problem?

It's probably saying cannot place at that location because you're looking at residential lots, instead of community lots. It may also be possible (I don't know really) that a community 'house' like this one must fit the lot size exactly, that you can't place a community building on a larger community lot. When you're in Edit Town click on all the lots first, you get up a window showing the empty lot and you can change the lot from residential to commercial. So choose the lot first, one the same size as this church lot and make it commercial, then select the church in the Library.

I once placed a mausoleum in my cemetary, but then the community lot was shown as cemetary and I wasn't able to have a party there. I just thought I let you know before you sweat about it ....
