Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is the first creation I’ve tried to upload to Mod the Sims 2, so I hope you like it.

Description: I wanted to make a residential lot that could accommodate a group of vampires, and what would be a more appropriate living quarter for a vampire than an abandoned church with old coffins and a nice crypt.
The crypt -1st level is a nice dark and comfy crypt, is the perfect living quarter for a vampire, it has no windows and will keep them out of the sun during the day. It has been fitted with a kitchen, a bathroom and a large living room that includes a dining room and a study. The Hall that leads to the church room has been fitted with a card table and a piano, and the corridor that allows the vampires a direct access to the garage contains a couple of fitness machines.
The church hall – the 2nd level has four niches with coffins for the vampires to sleep in and an altar with a wedding arch.
The Balcony is mostly decorative, but it has a chess board.
The garden includes a nice overgrown cemetery, with actual simgraves and gosts, but they seem to disappear when the lot is packed.
Lot size: 3x5
The lot is fully furnished, and require both University and Nightlife, the price is 215.584.

Costum content: The lot contains one piece of costume content.

"Out Of The Dark Ages - 2 Storie - Church Style" window bye Moon_Ez.

Other costum content that appear in the pictures has been removed before the lot was packed.
The lot has been scanned with the Clean Installer and contain no hacks.

:sorry: I'm not used to the Clean Installer and I uploaded an empty package. I've uploaded the right package now, please upload again if you've uploaded the empty pack.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Cool and creepy old church type home, duckingdal! I guess even vampires need a garage and minivan, nowadays. Thanks for sharing.

Hey duckingdal, this lot looks beautiful, but I am having a problem using it in my game.
As soon as I installed it with s2pci, I went to place the lot and my game froze.

I thought it might be the windows by Moon Ez, so I disabled them, but the game stil froze in neiborhood screen.
So I disabled St. Andrews and the game works fine. :weep:

I have both eps and am patched, and the only hacks I have are Merolas Multi-Painting and the no censor fix by Quaxi.

If you have any ideas on how to help me use your great lot, please let me know.

Hi Happenstance. I'm sorry to hear it doesn't work, I have no idea what caused it. I don't have any hacks in my game, and I checked the lot with the Clean Installer before I uploaded it.

Even though i can't use it, I wanted to say its wonderful!

First off, this is a great lot and I enjoy playing it. When I moved my sim in the lot didn't load but when I exited and started the game over, my sim was moved in.

You should never package a lot with sims living in it, graves or living sims! This could seriously screw up someone's game. All of those sims know other sims and it adds useless character files that cause neighborhoods to go corrupt and unplayable.

Also, the rose bushes cannot be trimmed at all.

Really cool! But just saying...if something as unholy as a vampire goes to live in a CHURCH... that vampire has got some nerve!
