Hello Everybody.

This is my creation of Lara Croft's Mansion.

Lara Croft's Home had a lot of graphic and architectonic changes between all the series. I've created this one following the architecture of her house studing it from the Films and from the Anniversary-Underworld games.

Of course you'll see that I had to change something, that's because it doesn't fitted with "''the sims"'' building-mode possibilities, so I had to use my fantasy to fix these inconveniences. I hope you'll like them anyway .

However I've tryied to build it as realistic as I could.

You'll find all the game's rooms that you remember from the game and I'm going to post you some screenshots to let you see what you'll find, the little inner-cemetery included (Underworld).









Please let me know what do you think about it. It took me lots of days working on it but now I feel very proud of it!

For the fornitures, I used new contents from the official store (the packages we downloaded with the points obtained buying the original game), anyway this is a directed link to that set I'm taling about:

So, I wait for your comments!

Enjoy !

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.

It looks beautiful. Im going to take a chance and download this even though I know my game will crawl because of the attention to detail. :D

edit* Question? those install instructions may be wrong as it's speaking for the Sims 2? I just wanted to point that out

It is a beautiful creation, but in my own opinion it's very different from the actual mansion. Too many differences for it to be recognizable as Croft Manor. That is just my harsh opinion though, as an avid Tomb Raider addict from the start, my standards are ridiculously high. Don't take offense!

Good work!


Yeah I spent days to do it (Lara has so so so big home! ahahah ) but I feel proud because of all your comments, THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS I LOVE YOU!!! ^__^

At first I've built the house following Tomb Raider II, but I had a lot of troubles to fit all the rooms, you know what? her house changes every game more radically! ahahaha! so I gave up ... then I started taking screens like a mad during the game (Underworld), watching again the films and so on ... and this mansion has come out from my mind (and from my eyes, fingers, shoulders [auch auch :D] too) .

Well there's a strange hirony in Lara's Home: at the end of these last games and films it happens always to be totally destroyed !!! ahaha poor Lara!


Thank you so much for all your comments !!! *___*

and now... I'll try to create a realistic Lara for her new home !!!

Oh wow. I'm so annoyed my Launcher doesn't work, it just crashes my PC so I can't install houses

Fantastic job though.

Wow, by the pics it looks amazing. You must have had a hard time trying to reproduce it, especially because the inside of the manor on Underworld does not match the outside of the house at all.

Umm, i not criticising, but the front of your mansion looks very different from the original. ie, the columns where the front door is are too wide apart on yours, also whats with all the statues? However, i know how difficult & frusterating it can be to recreate Lara's mansion, as i have tried & gave up! However, i have created a Lara, but have never uploaded her, but i will put her on the creators feedback forum if anyone wants to have a peek, as i think she is not quite right, as its difficult to replicate her what with all the changes she's had through the different games! lol.

Overall, a great effort though, you should be proud!

I like work, it fascinates me.
I could sit & watch it all day!
