Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

In the third age, long after the battle of the last Alliance of Men and Elves but long before the War of the Ring, Thranduil, son of Oropher, Sindar king of the Silvan elves of Greenwood, brought his people north to escape the increasing shadow coming out of first Mordor, then later Dul Guldur. He built his stronghold in the mountains of Mirkwood, deep in the forest, north of the old Dwarf road and delved his citadel into the rock as like Doriath an age before.

Or so says Tolkien. I just like Woodelves and wanted to give them a place to live.

Behold the Delved Halls of Greenwood.

Eight levels -(the third floor above ground is actually only roofs with only usable space being to connect staircases!)
Four Royal apartments below ground, one guest apartment above ground and the Butler's Quarters.
Quest Bathroom.
Archery and training field (Renaissance fair required)
Throne Room (Dining room really!)
The wine Cellar (Hobbit fans, yes its there!)
Underground swimming hole.
Tree-top terrace (Flet)

The lot size is a little awkward (64 x 25) as it was meant to fit in a specific spot. It will fit on a 64 x 64 obviously, with plenty of room to expand, or you can use a mod to make additional lot sizes. I use Awesome Mod, but I know others are out there.

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.
