Myyyyyyyyyyy goodness! This was probably one of the most challenging and complex builds I've ever made! But alas it is done and ready to share!

So! Here's a little backstory to this regal residence! A while back I created a family of royal blood known as the Dolpenshires. Don't laugh at the name! The Crumplebottoms are way worse lol. The family is comprised of Prince Peter Dolpenshire, along with his wife, Princess Claire and two adult children, Alaina and Jasper. They currently reside in a massive palace in Sunset Valley, but as is the case with many real life royal families, this is not the only palace they own. Every year when winter rolls around, the family packs up and moves to temporarily live in a smaller, but just as elegant, palace up in the mountains and celebrate the holidays there. And that other palace is the one I am sharing with you all today!

This massive residence includes three stories with around 25 rooms total. There are three main bedrooms, meant for the family, located on the second floor, while the third floor contains six other small bedrooms designated for either staff members or guests. These bedrooms can also hold additional family members and be redesigned if you choose. There are 16 bathrooms in total and the rest of the layout includes a wide variety of other rooms, ranging from a sculptor's studio and billiard room, to a two story ballroom and library. And because it is meant as a winter specific residence, the interior color scheme is primarily shades of white, blue, and gold. If you happen to have downloaded any Christmas decorations, you can certainly turn this grand palace into a true winter wonderland!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this lot and whether you yourself have any royal Sims in need of a home, or you simply want a grand palace in your town, I'm sure it will add a nice touch of royal elegance to your neighborhood!

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.
