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.

hmmm off the top of my head no, not really. I recommend just taking a look around online for inspiration. Google things like modern, technology, etc... The upcoming Into the Future expansion should give you some good ideas. Take a quick look at the video for it on the Sims 3 site.

New tomb lot is in its final testing. I'm tweaking loot then its onto screenshots.

Update: New Tomb is pending upload now

I was immediately intrigued by Titus Industries because it was visually impressive and it appealed to the part of my mind that had spent many an hour solving the World Adventures puzzles.

I added Titus Industries to Isla Paradiso and was soon poking around the lot and marveling at the attention to detail. I did note that the paved walkway to the front door seemed slightly shifted and didn't line up with the steps and doorway, though this may have been a side effect of sliding the structure around on a 64 x 64 lot.

I was quite impressed by the thoughtful lay out, the complex puzzles, and the triggers that you engineered into the lot.

I did have a perpetual problem with The Sultan's Keep-All on the second story catwalk and my Sim would reset every time they attempted to open it. I tried repositioning the Keep-All several times, but I was never able to successfully open the Keep-All.

Exceptional work, Diwtay... I can't wait to check out your other lots!

Thank you for your feedback. Is the chest in question is that the one at an angle next to hole in the rafter path?

Yes, that was the only chest in the lot that seemed to be a problem. Not sure of the reason why, but even relocating it to a more open area on the catwalk or to the ground floor still seemed to provoke my Sim to jump to a new location nearby.

Everything else was flawless... awesome work!

I'm in the process of uninstalling and reinstalling sims right now. Once everything is up and running again I'll take a look at the chest and see what I can do to fix it.

Is Barnacle Bay absolutely necessary? I haven't got the money for it, and I really love the tomb.

I'm getting a error message in the sims 3 launcher that is saying this has dependancies on stuff I don't have, but I have World Adventures, Late Night, and Ambitions, and I'm using the "no barnicle bay" version.

I'm getting the same error message in the launcher as Sales_Kital above - I DO have Barnacle Bay installed, I'm patched up to 1.67, and I've installed the updated version. Is there something I'm missing, or is the launcher just being paranoid?

I'm currently featuring it in a (german) Let's Play First step only here, and getting fried right away in the episode of the next day, but I can promise the upcoming episodes will be a bit more successful. So far I absolutely love it.

Hello! This is the first time I've commented here at MTS. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed playing this tomb! It was very well made and thought out! I loved the details, and I've even picked up a couple things that I could use to make my own tombs...someday. XD

I did encounter some problems though, and they all involved treasure chests. Several of the treasure chests throughout the tomb caused my sims to be reset to their home lot when I directed them to open the chests. I noticed someone else had that problem with one chest too, but I encountered it with multiple chests. I don't remember them all right now, but if you'd like, I can provide screenshots of the chests in question. I have NRaas Error Trap installed, and when my sims reset, it generated a report. I'll copy/paste what the report said:

Sorry, I know that's a lot. But hopefully, it can help you determine the problem. Please let me know if you'd like to know which chests were doing that. Thank you! And I hope to hear from you. :)
