Sunset Institute of Modern Art II: Replacement for SV original art museum

If you're anything like me, you gave up on trying to solve the rainbow/question mark/riddler tile problem long ago and nuked the Wolff house, the Sunset Institute of Modern Art, and the Goth house into oblivion and built replacements.

Presented here for your enjoyment is a replacement for the original art museum in Sunset Valley. It is – unapologetically – huge. I like to collect art here at Mod The Sims and at other sites on the web, and I use this building to showcase copies of the collection. (I use separate buildings for sim-generated art.) If your collection is even bigger than mine, this building is easily amenable to expansion, with more space for gallery walls on the main floor, ease of doubling the floor space of the second and third floor galleries and adding gallery space up there, adding more floors, etc. There are also empty pedestals where I had custom art but removed them so that you can have the pleasure of adding whatever you like there.

N.B.: You WILL have to use "MoveObjects On" to place pictures on the gallery walls underneath the lights already in place.

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.
