The Autumn Castle,
another piece of my Candle-Town series.
This took some weeks to build, I think the best lot I ever uploaded.
I used a good mix of free CC, free and buy store items. See list below.

Expansion Pack 1 (World adventures) required
Expansion Pack 2 (Ambitions) required
Saved with game version
Furnished: 648,546
Unfurnished: 530,635
Size: 60x60

See pictures for detailed floorplans.


Pond, swing, slide, kitchen garden, apple-, cherry, other trees, clothesline, bbq, canvas, parking lots (underground), outdoor chess

Bedroom 7x single and 2x double, kitchen / dining room 4x, many living/relax areas, bath 16x, nectar cellar, bar, showroom, training rooms 2x, arts room, big games room (table soccer, table hokey, sim-gnubb, trampoline), games room for children, pools, some empty rooms for your purposes

Have fun!

Seen on the pictures but NOT included:
Thanks to all creators!

The Sims Strike Back
Earth Day
The Ultimate Career Bundle
Explorer's Loot
Paris Wall Clock
Eco Set

EA-store: buy
The Tower Top Seems it's included in the The Complete Castle by Castle Kits, Inc. If you don't have the castle outdoor set, don't panic, I have constructed a normal pointy roof beneath, the only thing you have to do is, delete the default replacement.
The Banner of the Bold: 25 SimPoints
Gothique Candle Stool: 25 SimPoints
Treasures of the Realm Chest: 25 SimPoints
Check This Home Hokey Table: 75 SimPoints
Gothique Painting: 25 SimPoints
Pastoral Practical Kitchen Shelf: 25 SimPoints
Pails in Comparison: 25 SimPoints
Never-Spill Bucket: 25 SimPoints

When you place the lot in your world, have a close look at the ground painting,.. if you feel it doesn't look right, then please turn the lot around before placing! That's a general problem when placing lots with ground paint, it has nothing to do with my lot.

Lot Size: 6x6
Lot Price: 648546

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.

Looks like it's straight out of an RPG You have a hand for these towns, maybe there is a contest for the new standalone sims medieval game in the future where skilled people like you can submit their towns or maybe you see an altered version of one of your towns in the final product, i would do this as developer to support good talent from the community.

After weeks of anticipation this is your finest castle yet! Beautiful work - the little details all amount to a realistic, stunning castle and village - seriously your best, most spectacular work to date, Candlelight!

This is sick. I'm apple green with jealousy over here! It's absolutely incredible, the way you make such complex and highly detailed lots. My crapshot computer would give me the digital finger if I had the temerity to even try to install it, but I wish I could!
#18 Old 16th Aug 2010 at 5:23 AM
How do you mastermind these creations? The nature and number of ideas in this work are not something you would regularly see on one lot. Intriguing!

Looks amazing. Like from an RPG!

With this level of detail and size, you must have the patience of an angel - I get easily frustrated with even a small one-house lot. Congrats, great work.

The scale and scope of this incredible castle is mind-boggling. I certainly can't wrap my head around it. I can't decide whether to applaud it or set it on fire!! Or possibly run away screaming... I think I'll just go with that.

Awesome work with the castle, right now, I'm shopping for the cc that you pointed out, but I have a question, I can't seem to download the toad and the other stuff from Helen. Could you please let me know how to do it? Thanks!
