Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
READ THIS BOLD TEXT! THIS WILL NOT SHOW UP IN YOUR GAME IF YOU SIMPLY USE THE SIMS2 PACK INSTALLER! YOU MUST USE THE SIMS 2 Clean Installer FOR THIS LOT TO SHOW UP IN YOUR GAME!
Lately, I have been having an odd-obsession over cemeteries. After recently visiting some very old cemeteries in Philadelphia, a lot of ideas have came into my mind. After being inspired for a few weeks, I knew that I had to make some ancient looking cemetery for our game...
So here's the finished product. Perfect European-influenced cemetery, very aged looking and overgrown with weeds and vast amounts of flowers. Very creepy appeal, yet still a feeling of mystery and beauty hovers over the place. I hope you and your Sims enjoy this eerie boneyard!
Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 156,184
NOTICE:
This lot is a community lot, therefore obviously you aren't going to be able to live there. Though I have noticed many of you had wanted your people/vampires to able to live here. So, I will tell you how to convert the lot for those of you who do not know how. Make the cheat bar come up while you are in the lot (shift+ctrl+c)... then you want to type in "changelotzoning residential" and hit enter. To my beliefs, I am pretty sure it will work, though I haven't tried it much myself.
TIPS:
- Look at the building on the far, top, left. That is supposed to be a crypt, and if you haven't noticed already, I have included a surface area where you can sit up to 4 urns. Although you could always sit flowers and whatnot on it as well.
- I am sure there are some of you, who would prefer to actually place your Sims' graves here. If you haven't noticed already, alot of the ground is uneven, therefore you aren't able to place them around in many areas. So, what you need to do is enter a few cheats in order for this to work. First of course, you want to enter the cheat code "moveobjects on," which obviously allows you to move anything wherever. But to give you better control of where you wish to place them, enter the cheat "boolprop snapobjectstogrid false"... this allows you to move objects wherever you like, wihout needing to center everything. Eventually you'll want to disable that, so simply type in the same code except instead of typing "false" replace it with "true".

You are allowed to use my creations and modify them as you wish. The only two things I ask of you, is to give credit in areas where it is needed, and to not upload or repost of my creations on any paysites. My uploads are always free of charge. Thank you!

It looks so great in the pictures! I was able to download it and place it on my neighbourhood but unfortunately it crashed when I was loading it When I restarted the game and looked closer to the thumbnail i could see some blue blinking kind of sculpture in the center of the cemetery, is that possible? I think that's what's making the lot crash.

Could you (or any non-busy person) re-pack the lot without the sculpture (or whatever placed in the center)? I'm so eager to have it in my game, because it looks sooooo amazing in the pictures.

By the way, you totally caught the european scent

I understood that the sculpture is On the pedestal.

I have the same problem. It shows in my bin, I place it in my neighborhood and when I go to enter it it crashes my game. I don't notice any flashing in the thumbnail though.
Does someone know how to fix it? I am anxious to see it in game.
I have all the Major expansion packs up to Pets. I do not have any of the stuffs packs could this be the problem? If so which ones do I need?

The statue in the center is flashing in the lot view now.
Has anyone figured out if that is the problem?

If anyone else is having the flashing blue statue problem, try deleting the "d25befbe7c0a847a58bd22f38dab2c21_0001.package" that's installed with this lot - it fixed it for me. That file looks like a really old copy of the CEP, and probably wasn't playing nicely with the new version.

Once I deleted that file, the lot played with no problems for me (although I did have to thin out the landscaping a bit to keep my poor old computer happy). It looks GREAT in game. Thanks so much for sharing this!

It worked fine in my game! Thanks!!!

Actually, in order for it to work right as residential, you do that cheat AND add a mailbox and trash can. There are some downloads of those hacked so that you can buy them, set them up, and the lot will work properly as a residential. If you don't, Sims that move there, you can't see them or control them and it'll be like they're dead. I think I've heard a report of something else...

Maybe they used a hack or magistray or something that they didn't get rid of. Have you tried installing it with Clean Installer and removing whatever you don't want? Maybe it's because you did something while it was still busy loading or maybe it's too big to load.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I downloaded the Clean Installer and it supposedly installed the lot, but whenever I load the game there's nothing there. *Le sigh* I've had my eyes on this lot for a while now but I'm at the end of my rope. It's about time to throw in the towel for me. The lot is so perfect and it kills me but I guess it just wasn't for me. In any case it's a very lovely and quite spooky looking cemetery. Hopefully I'll get to have my Sims scared sh!tless at this lot someday.
