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!

Reminds me of some of the old European cemetaries (E.g. Highgate West in London or St. Marx Friedhof in Vienna)

Very creepy, I love it... Just a question, you list boots' gravestones 1-5 twice, is there 2 sets? I only found the 5. Actually now that I look at it everything is listed twice. Oh well I've got all anyway everything should work fine I'm sure

Anyway, great job!!!

**I'm sorry you didn't have to change it on account of me I was just curious if I might be missing some objects that I couldn't find or something.

I just had to come back and tell you how absolutely cool it looks in the game... I had no problem whatsoever. I just wish it wasn't a community lot, cuz I too would like a sim to live in it. I'm sure there's a way to convert it to a resident lot so if there's anyone who knows the way I can I would so greatly appreciate it.

I dunno what's wrong with it though, cause how does it work in some people's games? I am really new to this, but I willl try to fix it! Thanks for letting me know though!

I don't want to mess things up even more, but, in my case, the installer worked fine. The "successfully installed" message appeared, but the lot didn't in game.

All you have to do is change the lot zoning and then you can live in it.

It worked fine in my game! Thanks!!!

It is awesome! However, I couldn't download it =S it is always incomplete, is there aby chance that you could re-upload the file? so my sims will rest in peace! xD
Really, it's a great lot, and I've tried countless times to download it without success; if you uploaded it again I'd be very thankful!
cheers
