Halls of marble, works of gold, sapphire velvet, and blossoms of paradise all supported on an island that defies nature! You may find all this difficult to presume without seeing it for yourself. Fortunately, the Book of Belief is right there on that bookcase on the platform and there is a snug couch nearby, but it's much better if the reader stands while reading the book. This is how one ascends to the divine Tattletale Castle, because blessed are they that believe without proof, who can rise up to the meeting place where the celestial father has sent down a sample of the heavens. Tattletale Castle is the embassy of paradise, and it is where the most excellent of sims can earn a better seat in the coming kingdom by watching their neighbors for unbelief, recording their activities, and reporting them so that the chief minister of belief can immediately sever their protection from harm. *narrows eyes* And when the time comes, the celestial father will resurrect them so that he can send them to their eternal agony. Oh, how peachy and satisfying it is, the business of a tattler. Good will always triumph, because evil is dumb!


Requires base game patched to 1.17, no expansions or stuff packs needed
Starting household to staff Tattletale Castle is here:
An opulent castle on an island hovering over a locale with a fishing pond, playground area, and underground apprenticeship
Two royal spouse sims, ten more sims and an infant sim can live in the castle, four sims and another infant can live in the underground area
Stealth stairs reaching from the ground to the floating island, lowest level of the castle, and up the six towers
No World Adventures, High End Loft, Ambitions, Fast Lane, or Late Night objects placed
Top floors of the six towers accessible but empty for you to use as you see fit

Theme: A floating castle for those who do good by spying on their neighbors and reporting their unbelief
Target Location: 415 Skyborough Blvd, where else would a lot like this go?
Initial Capacity: Sixteen sims and two infants, more if beds are shared
Lot Size: 40 x 40 ( Do castles really have to be 60 x 60 ? )
Cheats Used: constrainFloorElevation, moveObjects, buydebug
Playtesting: Sixteen adult sims for four sim weeks
Weekly Bill: 2,600 imaginary simoleons


Download 1 - Tattletale Castle
This is the base game lot with no custom content, official or third party, included and requires patch 1.17. If you have Late Night and the knowledge you can turn areas into apartments.

Download 2 - Tattletale Castle with MultiOwnersDoors 2.1 placed
This version is for those who don't have late night and want to play with more than eight sims on the lot by using either AwesomeMod or Twallan's Master Controller. Requires MultiOwnersDoors 2.1 ( ) and patch 1.17.

Lot Price: 376,235
Lot Value Unfurnished: 259,253

Download 2 - Tattletale Castle with MultiOwnersDoors 2.1
Lot Price: 376,753
Lot Value Unfurnished: 259,449

Playing With More Than Eight Sims:

AwesomeMod: ( )
To allow more than eight sims using AwesomeMod, use the Allow Overstuffed Houses setting.

Twallan's Master Controller: ( ) under NRAAS Industries
To Allow more than eight sims using Twallan's Master Controller, click the Town Hall and set Allow More Than 8 Sims in a Household to True.

When playing more than eight sims the interface will still show eight portraits. To select a sim that is not in the portraits section you can switch to them with the Space Bar, or you can right-click on the target sim. It seems a bit clunky, but you'll manage.


Don't use the freerealestate cheat to buy the lot underfunded. Give the household enough funds with Motherlode, Kaching, or FamilyFunds
The underside of the floating island presents a giant CFE hanging floor that is visible from underneath and invisible from above.
You might see trees and plants on the level under their actual placement. This is a TS3 bug that affects 1.17.
Sims will often choose to eat their meal at the bar rather than at the dining tables.

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.

Constrain floor elevation cheat.

This reminds me, I should also mention that this lot was inspired by Whoden's flying castle. he did it successfully first, and I did it the same way: floor 2 is the island, leaving only three floors for the rest of the castle.

You NEVER fail to disappoint. Well done. Now where's my demonic boardroom? Hahaha. Never mind. But I think the community would agree when I say that you simply MUST build another 'Gul'.

Well, maybe perhaps... I want to, seeing that neither of the guls was ever fit to play eight or more sims. They were both 'raise a kid' lots. But what new to do, other than make the pools blood and have a large living area? For another 'Gul,' say Ilim Gul or Eelim Gul, it must continue the look but also progress another step forward. I'm at a loss right now but fall classes are over. Perhaps Dragon Age: Origins ( just bought it a few hours ago ) will give me an idea. Feel free to pm me a picture of an evil or hateful structure that is feasible for base game TS3.

Could I use this castle in a world I'm thinking about making? Here is the link to the thread where I'm trying to gather help and ideas.
I saw that your upload policy forbids uploading to the exchange, I wouldn't plan on uploading the castle on its own, but as a home included in the world if that's ok. If not, I understand, I have some experience using CFE and was thinking about trying something similar to create a hood of floating homes.
Also, I always give credit for each house I include that is built by another simmer in the lot description and on a WA tomb plaque inside the homes entry. You can better respond to me at the above thread, or I will try to check back here in a while to see if you responded here. Thanks for your consideration.

Hey, I love your castle, very unique. I feel silly asking, but how does your sim get in? I don't see stairs that allow them to get in?
