Harry Potter Collection: Malfoy Manor


Note: The awesome black hearse by Dr. Pixel is included in this download!

LOT INFORMATION
Malfoy Manor is home to Lucius, his wife Narcissa and their son Draco in the Harry Potter series. The Malfoy family is one of few remaining pureblood families in the Magic World. In addition, they are also one of the wealthiest wizarding families around. Their house is full of luxury and elegance. With this in mind, I created my version of Malfoy Manor. Very few descriptions of the manor are given, which means I used my imagination more than anything. Lord Voldemort did spend a great deal of time in and out of the manor as he prepared for the Final Battle of Hogwarts. I have no idea of what the house looks like (or will look like) in the movie, so please don't expect a movie version. Regardless, this is an awesome house (especially if you love mansions owned by the wealthy). Enjoy the download!

OTHER INFORMATION
THANK YOU!
I owe the deepest of gratitude to all the extraordinary artists whose objects helped to bring my vision of Harry Potter's Magical World to life! Thank you for sharing your time and talent with the Sim community. Thank you to the following artists for helping to bring a little "magic" to the Sim World: Dr. Pixel, Mia, and pfish. Be sure to browse the links at the end of the post for other fabulous downloads by each artist!

MY TEXTURES:
All stephanie b. walls, floors and ground covers included in houses downloaded from MTS2 can be used in lot creations on any free or pay site as long as I receive credit for the textures. Please do not post my textures (walls, floors or groundcovers) or lots on other sites without my permission or reupload them as your own by giving them color face-lifts without giving me credit for the original design. Thank you!

NOT A CARBON COPY:
These lots are creations from my imagination based mainly on excerpts from the books and on-line information. I am basing very little on the movie versions of each place, so don't expect exact replica's of movie versions of the various places in the Magic and Muggle World.

MY VISION FOR HARRY POTTER NEIGHBORHOOD:
My vision for this neighborhood is that the students do not "live" in Hogwarts. I see the school as home to only a few teachers (Dumbledore, McGonagall, Trelawney). Everyone else is spread out in either their family homes or in the Summer Houses.

MY SOURCE:
I used the floorplans found on the Harry Potter Lexicon site as inspiration. For extensive Potter INFORMATION, checkout the HP Lexicon here: www.hp-lexicon.org

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs.

Wow. The mansion looks HOT. Shame it requires so many expansion packs x_x; I only have Pets and OFB expansions... And my laptop has difficulty starting the game as it is. (though it is perfect once it actually starts)

Jammy,
Thanks as always for your supportive comments! :D

---------------------------------------------------------------

Animastar,
This mansion is so BEYOND Potter. It is actually an awesome house to watch your Sims roam around in. Big, but functional. It's a personal favorite of mine!

I actually own ALL expansion packs because I love getting new windows and doors to actually create my houses without having to include user created ones in my game. I MUST have them all. I have not installed Bon Voyage yet, as I want to finish my Harry Potter collection before I install it. I'm sorry you cannot download the lot.

You are brave playing Sims 2 on a laptop. I gave my laptop up because I couldn't even play The Sims 2 without expansions a little over a year ago. Playing on a laptop is a chore, even if you have the top of the line model and endless video, audio, memory, and processor updates. With a desktop, I can actually enjoy the game more! I started building Sims 2 lots about 1 year ago and I REALLY love being able to play the game without ridiculous loading time and constant freeze-outs! You are brave!

Take care.
stephanie b.

Yah for more Harry Potter lots.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

I'm glad you discovered this lot. I laugh because I have been blanketed in Harry Potter lots for so long, that I am beginning to believe my name is J.K.Rowling!

Seriously...enjoy the download!

Thank you. It is a HUGE mansion, but I think very fitting of the Malfoy family!
Lucius/Severus? Interesting combination! That just sounds like a fight waiting to happen since they don't trust one another!

Thank you. I remember this one was quite fun to create as I was trying to envision the "opulence" that the books refer to for this grand house with the secret "dungeon" beneath it. Please do enjoy the download!

This is absolutely beautifull.
I wish I could download it. (not even for harry potter sims)
It has an awful lot of red and gold for the Slytherin proud family though. I'm sure it would hurt Draco's eyes.
Beautiful

Why can you "not" download it?

Thank you for the compliment. I never thought about the red and gold thing in all those images. LOL! Although, most of the bedrooms and many of the rooms not pictured are in fine shades of Slytherin green and even Draco would sleep in green ! The house does transcend Harry Potter!

Hi!

I just checked your profile and see that you recently joined MTS.

One of several things could be wrong, but I wanted to point out 2 things I noticed right away.

1st: This lot requires University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons and Bon Voyage. Your profile does not list all of those games. If you don't have all the required EPs, it will not work.

2nd: This lot does contain a few user created objects (mainly my walls and floors), you will definitely need Numenor's CEP program found here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=92541.

Sorry about the inconvenience and hope you can find something Potterish somewhere just in case you cannot download this lot.

Glad you like. Believe me, there are several Black and Green Rooms. I doubt the entire house would be Slytherin colours. The Malfoys have so much money, I cannot imagine they would have only green and black rooms! Download it if you haven't and play around in it. If the red and gold and blue in some of the rooms annoy you - I'd love it if you would redecorate in your own style! At any rate, do enjoy the download, once you do!

Yeah. It is quite massive. I think of the Malfoys having lots of sleepovers, guests (even the unwanted Dementor variety) and people who spend the night and never leave. They could also throw really great social parties! Enjoy the lot!
