- "GrandTrianon_FloorMirror_(MUST-HAVE).rar" (UPD 23dec07): this archive contains the "Floor Mirror", that is the Repository of all the textures of the entire set. You MUST HAVE this file, otherwise the entire set will flash blue!
(Note: the Floor Mirror is already included in the big "Complete" RAR; but in case you don't want to download the entire set, the Floor Mirror can be downloaded separately).
- "CollectionPackages_(DO-NOT-PUT-IN-DOWNLOADS).rar" (UPD 23dec07): the archive contains the "Collections", that must be installed in (Documents)\EA Games\The Sims 2\Collections, in order to have all the GT objects organized in collections inside the Buy Mode catalog. Even if you don't download the entire set, you can always install all the "collections": the catalog will show only the installed objects.
, instead of the entire set in one big RAR, then you can find the various files in the following posts:
INTRODUCTION TO THE "GRAND TRIANON" SET
Mirrors have been in use since the middle ages but were made of polished metal. It wasn't until the 13th century that they were truly mirrors as we know them, glass with a metallic background. Mirrors have always been a signature of wealth and prestige since...
The original poster style Bed was introduced in the13th century and has been a symbol of wealth and prestige as well.
When we think of mirrors, our first thought is of the famous "Galerie des Glaces" (the Hall of Mirrors) which is located in the "Versailles Palace”.
The palace is not only the home of the "Grand Trianon" and the Hall of Mirrors but also a home to King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. It is here you can find one of the most exquisite "Poster Style" beds in the world.
With such inspiration, the “Dream Team” has created for you to enjoy, the "The Grand Trianon Collection" for the Sim's 2 game.
