********** WELCOME TO GWRYCH KINGDOM **********

PLEASE take your time and read through the information in this First Post. This project can be overwhelming when thinking about downloading it, but the information provided here will be most helpful in making your download experience as painless as possible. There are several download options and a few things for you to keep in mind about this massive neighborhood. You may want to just take as much time as necessary (a day or 2 even) to look over everything before downloading anything. And don't forget to take a look at the Gwrych 45 Updates (at the end of this post). ~*~Stephanie~*~

General Information and Gwrych User Object DOWNLOADS

- ". . . at ca 'n dragwyddol buchedd... to have life everlasting. . ."

In the midst of North Wales, there is a castle that intertwines into the craggy hillside, rising high above the Irish Sea. For centuries tales have been told about spirits lingering on the grounds of Gwrych Castle, especially that of the Countess of Dundonald, Winifred. The Countess inherited Gwrych from her grandfather, Lord Bamford-Hesketh. Countess Winifred was very passionate about ensuring that the Gwrych Kingdom be a place of prestige and honour. She worked tirelessly to maintain the castle grounds and the land throughout the kingdom. Upon her death the Countess left the castle to the Prince of Wales with the hope that the crown would maintain it. However, the castle was passed from hand to hand and over the years Gwrych has fallen into great disrepair. Many a traveler proclaims to have seen or felt the presence of the disenchanted Countess. It is widely believed that Countess Winifred haunts the castle grounds believing one day her spirit will inspire someone to restore the great castle. These tales of intrigue and mystery leave a shadow over the land itself. From afar, even in it's crumbling state, Gwrych Castle and all the land surrounding it seems to draw you in, holding even the most skeptical captive. There are those who have traveled to Gwrych only to vanish. Did they really disappear or have they been transported by Countess Winifred to a time when Gwrych was a place of great glory?

~~Perhaps it is time for you to find out for yourself!~~

ABOUT GWRYCH
This download is just the beginning of the Gwrych Collection. It is basically the starter set for the other Gwrych lots. It contains 45 lots for the Kingdom and the Duchy. The March, Barony and many additional lots are in other Gwrych uploads. Each individual Gwrych upload contains something different.

**********************************************************************************************************

THREE THINGS TO NOTE BEFORE DOWNLOADING ANYTHING

#1 WHO THIS PROJECT IS FOR
My vision for the Gwrych neighborhood is that it shall be a Medieval/Fantasy lot lovers "Starter Kit"...a gift for those who want a completely medieval neighborhood ready to play without having to hunt down objects and pull it together. Thus I created 45 lots full of Castles, Hovels, Churches, Businesses, etc.

This is not for ALL Simmers because...
1. it is a themed neighborhood and not everyone is into medieval Simming.
2. it is OBJECT HEAVY to keep the "Medieval" theme more authentic.
3. I used all EPs and Stuff Packs to create the lots.

When I uploaded this original Gwrych set of 45 lots (and subsequent lots including and up to the Gwrych March lots), I built with ALL EPs and STUFF PACKS. This collection of 45 lots was built with ALL EPs and STUFF PACKS. However, if you have ALL EPs, you can load the lots without having the STUFF PACKS. This should not harm your game or cause game crashes. What it will do is remove build mode objects I may have used in creating the lots (walls, floors/ceilings and fences). So, if you have ALL EPs and load the lots, there will be a bit of editing to do in replacing the walls, floors/ceilings, fences or other build mode items which it may remove. While you can load the lots without having the required STUFF PACKS, you MUST have all required EPs for the lots to load!

Sorry to those of you who cannot download the lots for any of the above reasons. But please feel free to browse and leave a comment nonetheless.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#2 TWO DIFFERENT DOWNLOADING OPTIONS

There are 2 ways to download. You can get all Gwrych Information, Objects, Lots and Maps by downloading the 13 zips in Post 1 and following the instructions below and within the zips to install them or you can pick and choose which lots and maps to download.

Read on...

DOWNLOADING OPTION # 1:
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SET UP A NEW HOOD USING "ALL 45 LOTS" and "ALL 5 SETS OF GWRYCH NEIGHBORHOOD MAPS"

Note:
I used the "Forge Set" by Buntah available HERE and "The Blacksmith Station" by Phaenoh available HERE in my "Township Part 2" in Post 5.

Shadows of Gwrych Medieval Neighborhood - 45 Lots
Total

This thread includes the "MAIN" Gwrych KINGDOM lots and the MAIN Gwrych DUCHY lots.
Downloads are included in each of the 8 Posts.

Post 1 - Gwrych User Objects
IMPORTANT
This post contains ALL User Created Objects, Walls, Floors & Terrains used to create ALL 45 lots in this thread. Due to the large number of lots, object redundancy, unzippable recolours and the limitation of upload size, I decorated the lots and packaged them without user created objects. I found it more practical to package the User Created objects separately for everyone's convenience. Therefore...YOU MUST download and add all 4 "Gwrych User Objects" zips to your Downloads Folder for the lots to show properly and fully decorated. Simply download the 4 "Gwrych User Objects" zips at the end of "THIS first post" and extract them to your Downloads Folder "BEFORE" entering your game. Then you will be all set to build your medieval Gwrych Kingdom.

The Conservatory is for Musicians, Artists and Writers. The Institute is for Theologians, Doctors and Lawyers. I have also added revised versions of 1 Manor House and 1 Row House for your "intellectual" students to live in during their educational experiences!

* Collegio Science Institute (Theologians, Lawyers and Surgeons)
* Collegio Art Conservatory (Artist, Musicians and Writers)

GENERAL INFORMATION About The Gwrych Project


*This Project was originally meant to be a part of the Deluxe Designers Inc. (D.D.I.) creations. Once D.D.I. disbanded, I decided to reorganize the small 3 lot project into a complete medieval neighborhood.

*"Shadows of Gwrych" is designed mainly for the avid "Medieval" Sim fans who have dedicated an entire game, "Any Game Starter" environment or separate Windows log-in to the creation of a "complete" Medieval neighborhood for your Sims. However, everyone is welcomed to peruse the downloads and grab what you like!

*Because the "Shadows of Gwrych" Project is a medieval themed project, it is "OBJECT HEAVY". With this in mind, this project was created using "ALL" Maxis EPs and Stuff Packs, as well as myriad of period appropriate User Created Objects. I also contributed a few dozen "medieval" walls, floors and terrains to the User Created Objects in the zips. Capturing the essence of medieval times was a major goal in the creation of this project...after all, one cannot have medieval lots without medieval objects! Please keep this in mind.

*The project will be presented in several threads: The first thread is this thread "Shadows of Gwrych Medieval Neighborhood (45 Lots)". I will present the remaining Gwrych lots in June and July 2010 in smaller sets. See my Journal for details. Basically you will have enough lots to create an entire kingdom of Kingdom lots, Duchy lots, March lots, Barony lots and general lots. The lots in the KINGDOM and DUCHY are more "prestigous" than those in the MARCH and BARONY. There are homes for nobility, skilled laborers and peasants.

*The lots range in size from 1 x 1, 2 x 1, 1 x 2, 1 x 3, 3 x 3 and 5 x 5. The average lot is 3 x 3. Please be patient with the 5 x 5 lots (namely The Gwrych Kingdom Castle and The Kingdom Abbey) when you are entering them for the first time or saving changes made to them. They tend to take a little more time to initially load & each time you save them after editing than the smaller lots!

*All lots have been tested for functionality and user object stability, but be sure to report any lot issues in a post if you find something major that disrupts game play.

*Certain lots are "prototype" or "clone" lots...meaning they were designed to be placed multiple times throughout your Gwrych Hood(s)...From Post 5 - the "Harvest Fields" and "Ditches" were designed for this purpose. From Post 6 - the "Woodlands" and "Graves" are clone lots. From Post 7 - the "Village Row Houses (Apartments)" and "Peasant Hovels" (Residential Lots) are clone lots. Feel free to mix and match as you wish.

*The RESIDENTIAL lots in this project include an invisible smoke alarm in the kitchens and a "hidden" burglar alarm (thanks Sophie-David making Maxis wall objects "height adjustable" for me). The burglar alarm has been hidden behind book shelves, counters and fireplaces F.Y.I.! Where I didn't use the "height adjustable" Maxis burglar alarm, I used Nanisims Picture Burglar Alarms. Basically, there should be burglar alarms and smoke detectors in all Residential lots!

*While this collection of lots is inspired by Gwrych Castle and Medieval Wales, it is "NOT" meant to be an exact replica of Gwrych Castle and Medieval Wales. Below are a list of links to the actual Welsh Castles that inspired my Gwrych Project:
Gwrych Castle

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

GENERAL GWRYCH Perks


* Sophie-David made Maxis objects available (including the Cauldron, the Witches Podium, etc.). These objects are included in the lots, but are not included in the downloads as they are a part of the game. However, if you delete them from your lots, you will no longer have access to them. So use a bit of discretion when deleting things.

* Sophie-David has also created a few barrel'ly' things including recoloured trash barrels and a trash barrel end table. I used the end table under the Maxis mailbox as a place to put the mail.


* In addition, Sophie-David has also created a few invisible things specifically for this project. There is an invisible dishwasher in the dining and kitchen areas of most Gwrych lots. There is an invisible mirror in the chapel on the pulpit of Gwrych Castle, and in the Classroom, Cathedral and Chapter House in Gwrych Abbey St. Mary's above the podiums for your Sims to “practice speech”. Simply click on the half wall or click around the leg of the podium to get access to the mirror. There is an invisible sewing machine table in all of the lots that include Dragonart's Rumplestiltskin's Spinning Wheel. The Spinning Wheel is placed over the sewing machine table. Just click on the spinning wheel to access the sewing machine. In addition, if you see "sewing items" on a regular table, the invisible sewing machine has been placed in that table. Simply click on the table to access the sewing machine! The animations aren't perfect, but it is much more authentic seeing the Spinning Wheel or a Sewing Table instead of an antique sewing machine!

* I created over 300 Textures specifically for the Gwrych project! Relax...I "ONLY" used 116 StephSim textures in the 45 lots. At any rate...here is a sampling of the textures included in the "Gwrych User Objects" Zips:
Note:
Each "Gwrych User Objects" zip contains StephSim Textures.

* I included an extra download below (in this post - Post 1) called "GWRYCH IMAGES and INFORMATION" ZIP. This zip includes the main exterior view images of each lot, the neighborhood setup images and a general information file for your convenience in organizing your Gwrych Downloads.

GWRYCH 45 UPDATES

LATEST GWRYCH UPDATE

*** June 2012***
I've updated the Kingdom Gwrych Bathhouse. It now only requires ALL EPs and No Stuff Packs. I also edited the front of the castle so that it is now flat on all sides. Depending on your game set up and computer capabilities, this only makes a difference if you were having trouble with the lot loading. It should now load properly for everyone. I have also updated the Teleport Files in the "ALLGwrychLots_4of7" zip in the Main Post - Post 1(under the Downloads Tab). So, you will have the most updated version of the lot. Thank you Taratears for alerting me of the problem.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PREVIOUS GWRYCH UPDATES

***December 2011***
The Collegio Institute Manor DORM has been updated in Comments Post #8. The lot did not have a mailbox, which made it load in Build Mode. For those of you who figured this out and added a mailbox, this does not apply to you. For everyone else, all you need to do is add a residential mailbox to your original lot or download the updated zip file in Post #8. I have also updated the Teleport Files in the "ALLGwrychLots_2of7" zip in the Main Post. So, you will have the most updated version of the lot. A few build mode cosmetic changes were made to the lot as well, but the floor plan remains the same. Also, this particular lot is has been repackaged without the STUFF PACKS. Now, your Sims can enjoy the Institute Manor DORMS!

***June 2010 UPDATE***
I have made it easier for those who want to download EVERYTHING to download only 13 files to get all 45 lots, 5 sets of Neighborhood Maps, Objects and Gwrych Images and Information. My suggestion if you are just finding this thread OR if you want to download "everything" please read the information in this first Post carefully (especially the "Three Things To Note Before Downloading Anything" section below). Enjoy the downloads.

***August 2010 UPDATE***
I used many barrels and invisible objects created by Sophie-David. David has updated his "Ye Olde Copper Barrel & Sack Miscellany" Collection (found HERE with "enhanced animation, meshes, thumbnails and extra recolours". Be sure to peruse the thread, download what you want and overwrite those files in your Gwrych Downloads in-game folder. David's "invisible" items can be found HERE, HERE and HERE. There is also a very unique update to the Apartment Life Mailbox that you may find useful found HERE.

***September 2010 UPDATE***
Added Edta's "FIXED" Counter (thanks to Sophie-David).
If you are using the original Edta's medieval cupboards set (specifically, "edta-medievalcupboard.pkg" and "edta-medievalcupboard2.pkg"), they will conflict with any lots that use the Maxis Gothic Stained Glass Window, due to a GUID conflict.

I used Maxis Gothic Stained Glass Window in several of my Gwrych lots, so if you have Edta's original counter meshes in your Downloads Folder, those files will more than likely cause the game to crash because Edta's original counter shares the same GUID with Maxis Gothic Stained Glass Window.

Luckily, there is a fix thanks to Sophie-David.I highly suggest deleting Edta's original counters from your Downloads folder. If you prefer to use the counter, download the repaired version from the "Files" section of this thread.

Please note: I did NOT use Edta's counters in any of my Gwrych lots. This is not a Gwrych problem, but only an issue for those who have Edta's original counters in their games. My suggestion is to delete the original counters or to replace them with the "repaired/fixed" versions included in the "Files" section of this thread. You do NOT need these counters for Gwrych to work properly.


***October 2010 UPDATE***
Apparently, you CANNOT use "move objects on" to place objects on the back of a counter where there is a kitchen sink. In some of my Gwrych lots, I placed decorative items (sponges, hour glasses, plants, etc.) in the back corner of counters that have kitchen sinks. If you are receiving a counter error message when entering a Gwrych lot with a Sim for the first time...there may be objects sharing kitchen sink counter space (like the hour glass, sponge, plant or jars) that I overlooked in the process of fixing this problem. To fix this problem, all you need to do is to load a new version of the lot, enter it WITHOUT A SIM and delete any objects that are sharing a counter with a kitchen sink.

Also, if there seems to be no sink in an area where there should be one (especially bathrooms and kitchens)...try adding a sink to the empty counters. If you cannot place a sink on a counter, that counter should be deleted and put back in the game before adding a sink. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Remember, enter the lot WITHOUT a Sim to make changes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



OBJECTS TO COMPLIMENT THE GWRYCH LOTS

The following links are to items "NOT" included in the Gwrych Downloads. These objects are not "needed" to load my lots. I am simply providing the links below for your convenience.

*There are also a few Church Items available at Around The Sims 2 FOUND HERE.

*There are also a few "free" church downloads available at Sim Design Avenue (formerly "Caravan Sims") - CLICK HERE - After you enter the site, click the "Themes" Tab and scroll down to the "Church" items.

*The "perfect" Cross for the top of the ALL Gwrych churches is from ReligioSims. While RelgiouSims is closing, HChangeri will be moving the items to Retail Sims 2. Be sure to CHECK HERE to obtain the Large Holy Cross for the top of your Gwrych churches.

*REMINDER - There is also a "Forge Set" by Buntah available HERE. Phaenoh has also created a forge stand of the Robot Making Machine that you can download from HERE. I did use both objects/set of objects in my Township Part 2 in Post 5. Seeing that permission is not given to use these objects in lots, YOU MUST download both the Forge Set and the Blacksmith Station for that particular lot to show up properly.

Default POST 2 - Shadows of Gwrych: 4 Neighborhood Map Sets
GWRYCH NEIGHBORHOOD MAPS


This post allows you to choose and download between 4 Gwrych Isle maps to build your Gwrych community on.

Here you will find four Gwrych Kingdom neighborhood maps. Kingdoms 1 and 3 were designed for the "MAIN" Gwrych Neighborhood and Kingdoms 2 and 4 were designed as Gwrych "VACATION" neighborhood maps. Basically you can choose Kingdom maps 1 and 2 if you prefer your main castle (Gwrych Castle) be a vacation hotel or vacation residence lot OR choose Kingdom maps 3 and 4 if you prefer your main castle (Gwrych Castle) be a general residence or apartment. However, feel free to mix and match the hoods as you please.

Notes:

* A few of the images include dirt roads. While these are not a part of my downloads, you can get Stev84's Country Roads here . Installing the roads is quite simple, but please make sure you read Stev's post carefully to avoid minor game conflicts.

* The neighborhoods are NOT decorated. All decorated images are the Main .PNG files.

* There are available beach lot areas in each Kingdom.

* Download 1 or ALL 4 Gwrych Kingdom hoods and unzip the .sc4 and .png files into your SC4 Folder.

* If you install Stev84's "Country Roads", you may wish to click on the Neighborhood Icon to delete the red street signs with the white hyphen in the middle that are on every corner to give the lots a more authentic medieval look. It should not impact game play whatsoever.

* I am using Gwrych Kingdom Neighborhoods 3 and 4. Neighborhood 3 is my Main neighborhood and Neighborhood 4 is my Vacation neighborhood.

Note:
The differences between the 4 Gwrych Castle lots are minimal. The interior of the castle itself is decorated and ready for play.

The layout for both Residential Gwrych Castles and the Gwrych Castle Hotel are almost identical.

Lot Price: 188,711 Simoleons (Residential Home Business Lot)


Description:
This lot includes an Apothecary Home Business (with candles, herbs and books), an Apple Orchard and a Herbal Garden. This is a 3-Story lot with 2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 4), 5 Bathrooms (3 Full and 2 with Toilets Only), a General Family Parlour, a Family Music Parlour (with Kitchen and Dining Room), a Small Private Balcony, a Reading Room (In The Tower), an Activity Room (for sewing, painting, plate making and communicating using the Crystal Ball Computer by xanathon), an Apple Orchard and Herbal Garden and a "Delivery" Carriage Way (Driveway). The Apothecary store is the first level. It includes a "Home Business" store and 2 guest toilets.

Tips for the Home Business
To run your own home business, you need to first click on the door on Floor 1 of the Tower Stairwell and lock it to keep customers out of the upstairs "family" area. Then, click on the telephone and "Business" to Start your own home business. Follow the instructions given using the Home Business icon at the upper right side of your screen to select the itemsfor sale, etc. When I tested the shop, customers were moderate and the business was booming.

General Note: The 2 tall display shelves by the right hand front doors (with the broom near them) are intentionally blocked by the broom and the stacked storage buckets. You should NOT put any of the items on the 2 shelves near the broom doors up for sale because you cannot restock them once they are gone as they are from a personal collection of extracted Maxis items, especially the "witchy" extracted items (the purple mortar and pestle, the Crystalized Moon Beam, the Eye of Newt Jar, the green glass bottle and cauldron).

Follow the instructions given using the Home Business icon at the upper right side of your screen to select the itemsfor sale, etc.

P.S. - There are no toilets for your customers here, BUT the bakery is said to have the most "delectable" breads! Also, the items on/in the first floor fireplace and the preparation table to the left of that fireplace are there to give your bakery an authentic look. You may not wish to sell these items because placing them back as they were may prove to be a hassle.

IMPORTANT NOTE
Be sure to download ALL 4 "Gwrych User Object" zips in Post 1 of this thread and extract them to your Downloads Folder BEFORE entering your game. Without doing so, your lots WILL NOT show properly.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Gwrych Duchy: Education EXTRAS
Since higher education in Medieval times was a bit more scattered in general, I decided to create a really small "Collegio Isle" for your intellectual and artistic Medieval Sims.


~*~*~*~*~*~

This post includes the following:
Collegio Isle Neighborhood Maps
This is a VERY SMALL neighborhood map called Collegio Isle. Use this map to setup your Gwrych University area. Collegio Island is large enough to house the 2 academic buildings and a residential places and dorms for your Sim students. Simply place the 2 academic buildings in the center of the island, add the dorms below or the residential lots of your choosing and send your Medieval Sims to "University"!


IMPORTANT NOTE:
Since this is a small island with beach capabilities, I STRONGLY suggest that you place the lots in the order indicated in the image below. Each lot placement has the potential to "sink" the land a bit and makes certain areas unusable. I found placing the lots as indicated in the image below prevents this from happening! This image is included in the "Gwrych Images and Information" zip in Post 1 for your convenience.

~*~*~*~*~*~

Collegio Beach
Lot Size: 5 x 3 BEACH LOT
Lot Price: 0 Simoleons (Community Lot)
Description:
This lot contains a small shop, a restaurant, beach huts and various outdoor activities (ax throwing, chess, darts, campfire, etc.).

~*~*~*~*~*~

Collegio Science Institute
Lot Size: 3 x 1
Lot Price: 0 Simoleons (Community Lot)
Description:
This lot represents the "scientific studies" of the time including Theology, Law and Medicine. It was formerly a small parish church, but eventually became a School for the Scientific Minded. It includes a chapel, a graveyard, 2 toilets, a Scriptorium (for Theologists), a Law Library (for Lawyers) and a Medical Lab (for Surgical Students).

Note:
Be sure to get a cross for the top of your church building. *The "perfect" wooden Cross for the top of the ALL Gwrych churches is from ReligioSims. While RelgiouSims is closing, HChangeri will be moving the items to Retail Sims 2. Be sure to CHECK HERE to obtain the Large Holy Cross for the top of your Gwrych churches.

Collegio Art Conservatory
Lot Size: 3 x 1
Lot Price: 0 Simoleons (Community Lot)
Description:
The Art Conservatory was once an abandoned Manor House that belong to the Duke of Breconshire. Instead of allowing it to fall into disrepair, he turned it over to the Brothers of Llewyn, who donated the manor for "educational purposes". The lot includes the main building which houses an Art Class, a Music Class and a Writing Class. There is also an outdoor stage and a second building that houses a lounge and an exercise room.

This lot contains 3 Artist's Cottage Dorms for your Writer, Musician and Painter Medieval Sims. Each cottage contains 1 single or 1 double bed, a kitchen/parlour and a creativity room. Each cottage contains 1 bathtub and 1 toilet as well.

Note:
I remodeled the exterior of the Duchy Row House - Working Class lot and added a few interior decorated objects to reflect the students. Cottage Dorm 1 is for a Writer, Cottage Dorm 2 is for a Musician and Cottage Dorm 3 is for a Painter/Artist. For details about the layout, click on the link below or revisit Post 7: Duchy Row House - Working Class above.

Collegio Institute Manor DORM
***December 2011***
The Collegio Institute Manor DORM has been updated. The lot did not have a mailbox, which made it load in Build Mode. For those of you who figured this out and added a mailbox, this does not apply to you. For everyone else, all you need to do is add a residential mailbox or download the updated zip file in this Post (Post #8). I have also updated the Teleport Files in the "ALLGwrychLots_2of7" zip in the Main Post. So, you will have the most updated version of the lot. A few build mode cosmetic changes were made to the lot as well, but the floor plan remains the same. Also, this particular lot (and this lot ONLY) has been repackaged without the STUFF PACKS. Now, your Sims can enjoy the Institute Manor DORMS!

Lot Size: 3 x 3
Lot Price: 0 Simoleons (University Dorm Lot)
Description:
This is a formal manor with a shared kitchen, bathrooms (3 shared and 1 private each) and 3 separate bedrooms (2 sleep 2 and 1 sleeps 1). There is also a barn and a cloister-like backyard and gardens.

Note:
I repainted the exterior of the Kingdom Manor Apartments and added a few interior decorated objects to reflect the students. Each room has a bit of added decor for either a Theologian, a Lawyer or a Medical Student. One of the rooms has 2 dorm doors. This is intentional for it will allow for 2 students to share the room. For details about the layout, click on the link below or revisit Post 3: Kingdom Manor House above.

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone! Your comments made me smile inside, giggle on the outside and realize that I am glad I didn't give up on the project. And imagine...it was "SUPPOSED" to be 3 lots! I truly appreciate everyone's words.

It's a great neighborhood to Sim in and it's SO nice to finally have more than just a few medieval lots. I guess I have this thing for "complete" hoods! There will be a few more additions to the project along the way...but for now it gives "medieval" Simmers plenty of LOTS to download and explore! ENJOY!

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

Absolutely incredible. I just scrolled through all the lot pictures, and the care and attention to detail that you have put into each and every lot -- not to mention the sheer amount of work this represents -- have me completely awed.
