Hello again!
Here it is the first lot of the project, as promised. It's named 'Hogwarts' though it's NOT the whole castle.
Remember that this is a very tiny part of the whole set, so if you want the castle to show correctly you'll have to wait... sorry, I'm doing it as fast as I can. However you can still download the lot and place it wherever you want!





I've attached a 'map' of the Hogwarts neighbourhood so you can place the lot in the correct place.
It must be placed in 'LOT 1'


This lot features the Entrance to the Castle, the Great Hall (ready for the 4 house tables and professors' high table), the Great Staircase (it's a pity we don't have moving staircases), the Dungeons (ready for Potions and Potion's teacher own room), the Defense Against Dark Arts room (space for teacher's room too) and tower, the Charms room (where you can go by 3 different ways,including a 'secret passage' made with boblishman's secret bookcase door), a courtyard, and some shortcuts and hidden passageways (elevators and bobblishman's secret bookcase door -again- ).





You can see the lot is unfurnished, that is because I thought you'd sooner make up the interiors (the books don't specify a lot so we can let our imagination imagine LOL). However if you still want me to upload my furnished version I'll do it (unless the file becomes bigger than 10 mb...)

Now, I must confess there's no custom content by me... I'm new at this and I have no idea of how to make meshes or recolors... that's why I want to thank all the creators from whom I took the stuff, specially thanks to Boblishman for his great secret bookcase door!



If you have any doubts of how to place the lot just let me know, have fun!!!

Lot Size: 3x5
Lot Price: over 20.000k

Not good enough, sorry. I've seen better Hogwarts lots on this website. Where did the roof of the middle building go? There are no bare, purposeless columns on the side of the real Hogwarts either (they must hold some kind of roof). And the Great Hall didn't come out well too (it should've been wider, it had fireplaces and a Trophy Room in the back, and the windows were quite different, not to mention they were on all three sides of the hall). You should check the maps of Hogwarts interiors and take a look at the 5th HP game if you want to make it flawless.

You're so kind Nephertinna.
I'm sorry this thread has been posted before part 0, where I explain the whole thing... this is not the whole Hogwarts -and it's not gonna be as in the movies, but as I have imagined it by reading the 7 books-
The map I've attached in the rar file is about a neighbourhood I've been trying to upload, but I've had some few problems so its approval by the site has been delayed.
The whole castle consists of 4 lots... I hope you like it when it's completed.

I think its fine that youve created (are creating) lots as you imagine them to be. The moveies/games' concepts are great but I enjoy seeing all types of imaginings from media. I think its brilliant that your making these in smaller lots- yes I have seen gorgeous lots before with the hogwarts castle done up huge!

BUT- my computer can hardly run those extravagent humongous hogwarts castles even in crap mode -(and I have a home built gaming machine) it just cant handle all that and its laggy- doing the lots up smaller like this is great because I can now play in a hogwarts theme without the hassle. Id like to see any complainers come up with something better- I cant make lots for anything- Im a simmer. Bravo for not sinking to others' level-btw.

Nephertinna: Don't like it? Go make your own. This person obviously put alot of hard work into this and so doesn't need such snidey remarks like yours. Constructive critisium yes, not out-and-out damning of a creation.

Fantastic work! I also suffer from the problem of not being able to use the big Hogwarts lots and so this would work much better for me :D

there's no furniture, that's up to you.
I answered in the other post where you asked the very same question. Though you really could answer yourself just by reading the 'overview' of the downloads you're interested. It's too easy to sit down, ask and wait for the answer. Read. Just that.

I'm sorry but thers no way you can fit four long tables in the hall so I simply don't understand your imagination. Did you really read the books?

don't use it if you don't like it. I really don't need rude people telling me what the f*** they think about my imagination. This is it. And of course I have read the books, I won't tell you how many times! Go make your own, I'm sick of you people who only know to complain!
