(working fine as at 2 Jan, 2006 with NL installed - except the swingset recolour is flashing blue in n'hood view - solution: change it! The bed is definitely the one that came with Uni and as such some of the meshes may be based on Uni items)

Gday Simmers

I am happy to present Castle Lag-A-Lot - mostly because I am sick to death of the thing =) I have included a snaps rar if you want to actually look at the full size pics. See further down after my real estate agent spiel for the how-to's of this lot.

**************************************************
Castle Lag-A-Lot is an urban fairytale glass castle for the modern King & Queen. Fashioned exclusively from ancient glass from the forge of Numenor, glass floors based on the work of The Transparent Man RGiles and pointy roof bits from the foundry of Brasstex - the Castle will delight your royal sims and challenge your machine!

The ground floor includes entranceway, dining, living, bar, kitchen, art studio, bathroom and access to the paved patio. Very small, indeed stealthy, stairs whisk you to the first floor and opens out onto the family living and entertainment area with an adjoining office for royal paperwork. The master bedroom features an ensuite with shower and bath and a connecting door to the nursery. The nursey has access to yet another bathroom - this one is shared by the secondary or childs bedroom.

The grounds have been reduced in size from their many thousands of acres to a normal medium sized suburban block. The family burial plot still stands as do the ancient willow trees. Castle Lag-A-Lot is decorated in neutrals and whites with royal splashes of red and features both antiques and modern furnishings in a mish-mash of the old and new.

Unfurnished Cost: around $130,000
Furnished Cost : around $300,000

CASTLE LAG-A-LOT - TECHNICALITIES/HOW TO'S/FILES

1) There will be no zip files - my lots are too BIG for crappy zip files
2) You need to get the recolourable Wrought Iron Stairs installed for this lot. The details/links can be found in the read me file.
3) This lot uses Numenors full length glass windows and doors. See the read me file for details/links.
4) BE WARNED - this lot isn't named Lag-A-Lot for nothing. Glass everything means your video card is drawing many more objects than usual. Changing the floor to an opaque floor and/or removing some/all of the full length windows will help.

This dialogue is taken directly from the Read Me which is contained in EVERY .rar file.

FURNISHED PTS 1, 2 & 3

File 1 ---Castle L-A-L (Lot file + Build Objects + Maxis Recolours.rar)
Contains the Lot File & Build Objects in a Sims2 Repacked File. Contains a folder named Maxis Recolours with all the Maxis recolour package files within.

File 2 ---Castle L-A-L (Objects pt1)

File 3 ---Castle L-A-L (Objects pt2)

INSTALLATION

Don't extract files directly to your Downloads folder =P It means you don't know whats going in there and you end up with all sorts of crap. If you need info on exactly what you CAN do with your downloads folder - take a look at this thingy I wrote: http://modthesims2.com/showthread.p...7841#post257841

1: Install Castle Lag-A-Lot (Lot+Build).Sims2Pack from File 1
2: Place the Recolours and Objects in your Downloads Folder. I personally keep all my meshes sorted by creator as it makes them easy to find when I download recolours for them or want to update them etc.

UNFURNISHED Pt 4
File 4 ---Castle L-A-L (Unfurnished Lot) - contains an unfurnished version of the lot

INSTALLATION
Sipmly install Castle Lag-A-Lot Unfurnished.Sims2Pack from File 4. It contains the lot, build objects, walls, windows, lights, trees etc

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

TS2 Original Game

You need to be a Registered Member to be able to download from MTS. Registration allows you to thank and leave comments for the creators, see your download history, participate in the discussions and much more!

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
