Ezekiel Titus founded Titus Industries in the 1920s. Now that Ezekiel has passed away and his less than scrupulous grandson has taken over the business, old rumors have resurfaced about the origins of the Titus family wealth. Is Ezekiel's grandson using the old Titus warehouse as criminal hideout? What secrets could Ezekiel have left behind about the origins of the Titus family wealth?

--------------------
Game Version: 1.63.4.024001
Required Content: World Adventures, Ambitions, Night Life, and Barnacle Bay
Lot Size: 50 x 25
Lot Type: Hidden Tomb
Furnished:$276,707
Unfurnished: $181,408
--------------------

I started this Tomb back when World Adventures was first launched and I've been working on it on and off since then. I'm both ecstatic and a little sad that it's finally done. Tomb building is hard but a lot of fun. The idea behind this lot is a multi-generation criminal hide out. The top layer is a more modern run down factory that hides criminal activities. Where the bottom layer is suppose to be the reminisce of a hidden bootlegging operation and speakeasy. I've tested the lot many times but you never know what errors may pop up. Please let me know if you find any problems.

Please note that because of ModtheSims upload requirements SCREENSHOTS INCLUDE SPOILERS.

10/30/13 UPDATE
-------------------------
I finally got off my tush and updated this lot. During my initial upload there was a bug that prevented certain decorative items (like brambles) from showing up. Now that the bug has been patched I am uploading the version I wanted/intended to upload in the first place. Although the brambles do not effect the basic game play of my tomb, including them adds additional ascetic flavour so I encourage you to re-download this lot. I have updated my screenshots to reflect my new changes. I have also attempted to fix the issue with the non working chest on the platform. Please let me know if you find any additional problems.

ADDITIONAL UPDATE 10/30/13:
--------------------------------------------
I've upload a second version of my Titus Industries Playable Tomb lot that does not require Barnacle Bay to play. Happy Treasure Hunting!

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.

This is great! I tried making something like this for myself, once, but it wasn't nearly as nice as this! (If "nice" is the appropriate word, in this case.) Thanks!

The lot looks great, but I have a question. Do you need the actual town of Barnacle Bay, or simply the items from that world? I ask because I have the Buccaneer's Bounty set from the store, which is basically the items without the town.

Unfortunately yes you do need the original Barnacle Bay set. The only item that is included from there is the Grog Barrel which no longer can be downloaded individually.

I am working on a new project right now based on a secret Plantsim Research Lab. I am putting some tomb elements in it but it might not turn out to be a full puzzle tomb like my last one.

As for after that... I'm thinking princess rescue.

Nope not yet :P. I am hoping to have the major work done by the end of this weekend. Outside and majority of the main rooms are done. I'm now working on filler rooms and working out the puzzle progression through the map and making sure its linear.
