I really wanted to write an essay into this post about the history of Versailles but those who really care know how to google/use wikipedia and I can't be bothered to after all this. The philistines may marvel at my labour of LOEV (turned to HAET and much RAEG) while the pickers of nits will likely BAWW at my not using LotAdjuster to add the other wings including the Chapel Royal & Opera Theatre - don't think I didn't try... *sigh* the chateau itself was frustrating enough to recreate in the game but I've done my best to make this lot's interiors PLAYABLE while making the exteriors semi-accurate.

[it is simply impossible to faithfully recreate the chateau detail for detail in the game with
or without LotAdjuster!]

The lot is commercial and is easily converted with the lot zoning cheats. It comes unfurnished as very little NON-CC actually fits in with the decor so if you want the interiors to be accurate you'll have to furnish it yourself. I suggest starting with simnuts fontainebleu set.
