So, here it is: THE VAMPIRE CASTLE!

Expansion Pack 1 (World adventures) required
Expansion Pack 2 (Ambitions) required
Expansion Pack 3 (Late Night) required
Saved with game version
Furnished: 484,497
Unfurnished: 298,878
Size: 60x60

Inspired by a nice MTS-tutorial (thanks patul) here, I decided to build something around the spiral stairs.
Looks like EA fixed some bugs with the latest patches, so you can create perfect spiral stairs.

You'll find a lot of possibilities for your sims as well as a lot of goodies hidden in and around the castle.
The underground parking lots can be accessed by a secret door or through a well down in the tomb.

Have fun!

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.

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.

Browsing the downloads I spot what I think is some one's feeble attempt at making a castle, looking at the creator's name, I go "this aught to be good". It is ! What a superb construction bordering on "Work of Art". Thank you for this wonderful addition to my game.

You always impress me with your new creations! Each time I think, 'this castle is going to be the center of my hood', but then you always surprise me with something more beautiful! And all those details that you have put, it's great! You should be an architect in real life, cause your lots are IMPRESSIVE

Thanks for these great comments

I cutted some walls, so here's a more detailed picture from the spiral stairs. (I'm really proud, it's working and sims are using it )

Ooooh, I've wanted the Gothique set for so long. Now I HAVE to get it for this amazing creation of yours! You're so talented. Your groundwork is fabulous, and I know it takes a good imagination and steady hand to assimilate 'nature' convincingly into a fresh lot. I, too love the way you've completed the stairs. Great work!

Late comment is late, but your creation is incredible! (The horror fan in me is still in an epileptic fit in the corner by the sheer dazzling creativity). GAWD, EA should HIRE you to design an expansion pack!

Incredible - the detail is astounding!

(totting unrelated to anything here)

sims medieval is a disappointment BUT not super much its like playing sims 3 with always having opportunities and having no family (children dont age) its like sims 3 in a medieval place without a few of the awesome (allot of the awesome) features of the game (allot of these are reasons why we play sims)
