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

This build began a few years ago, and grew slowly over-time as something of a procrastination project. HOWEVER, finally, we are here. I have reached just about my PC's limit with this one, and thus have left a couple rooms bare (in the gatehouse).

The palace is otherwise fully furnished, and I had a lot of fun putting in small details. I have also had my sim walk around testing all the staircases and doors, and it all works flawlessly. However, sometimes I have clumped chairs together for looks and not all of these will work (but all those at tables will).

This build features 17 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. I have tried to keep a period look overall, with extremely few globes used in lights (you will just have to pretend theyre shaded candles). However, the castle is also not supposed to look brand new. A lot of the woods are worn, patterns faded. I can imagine it's a little musty inside!

Final notes: Uses decor from all EPs, no stuff packs, store or CC were used. It may be a little difficult to run if your computer isn't a little beefy. (If it isnt running well for you, try enabling 'object hiding' in the graphics settings). Fireplaces are all upgraded to "fireproof".

Kitchen only. I intended to create dungeons and such, but my PC is starting to hate this build. But this can be a project for you, the downloader!

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.
