My summer vacation is almost over and soon I'll have to revert back to my studying duties. But before that, I've got something very special to share. Here comes a slightly megalomaniac project of mine, that I've been alternately working on and putting it off, for almost a year now. But right in this moment, as I'm happy with it, as it is, I decided to get rid of this "chimera" once and for all.

For those, who didn't recognise it from the screenshots or overlooked the title: Yes, it's an ancient Roman Villa. I love the antiquity and it's architecture overall. It's so smart, relaxing and harmonic. I didn't used any particular plans, just a few pictures from books. This ancient mansion has a few separate buildings, lot of courts, gardens, a spa and even it's own temple of Venus with a sacred pond.

The villa is partially furnished with a lot of furniture hopefully suitable to the period. It uses the biggest lot size and for those who'd like to move in, it costs about 450 000$. EP is required. I'm not sure about the playability of this lot, especially because of the game framerate, but at least it will look great in your neighborhood view.

There's also a lot of custom content in this package:

Since I finished re-reading "Pandora" by Anne Rice for the hundredth time yesterday, I've been wanting a dramatic Roman villa like this for my game. Unfortunately, since my Internet is so slow, I can't download it now. But because I'm getting DSL in the coming weeks, I'll most certainly be back.
