Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game

There was a wrong price for the Corner Piece in the first upload and strange color presets on the 3-tile bed! Obvious I was zipping the wrong files the first time. I'm sorry for that, please redownload again.

With this kit you can build your own prison but the parts can also be used to construct cages in a zoo.
Build the walls first and then place the grids and doors.

There is also a prison window with bars that prevent your Sims houses.

Two benches are in the zip file, a 2-tiles long and a 3-tiles. They're not very comfortable but Sims can sleep on them.

Then there is also a small wall decoration.

Grille: $ 80 - are found among the windows in the Building Catalogue
Door: $ 100 - found among the doors in the Construction Catalogue
Corner Piece: $ 15 - are found among the statues in Buysection - Decoration-Statues
Window: $ 30 - are found among the windows in the Building Catalogue
3-tile bed: $ 50 - found in Buysection - Comfort - Sofas
2-tile bed: $ 45 - found in Buysection - Comfort - Sofas
Wall Writing: $ 1 - is found in Buysection - Decorations - Paintings


Grillpiece: 206 vertices and 152 faces
Door: 846 vertices and 640 faces
Corner Piece; 24 vertices and 12 faces
Bench 3-tile: 172 vertices and 96 faces
Bench 2-tile: 152 vertices and 96 faces
Window: 613 vertices and 720 faces
WallWriting: 4 vertices and 2 faces

I will thank EA for this marvellous game, the developers of the tools and the autors of tutorials.

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. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. 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.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

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.

Maybe a silly question but is it really escape proof ?
I mean when a sim is locked up they can't get out (like the private door on this site) ?
If it's not and they walk out, it doesn't mather it's still a great creation.
