Something has happened...what is that smell?! The water smells horrible. It's been poisoned...obviously the EMPEROR OF EVIL has something to do with this! There's no way to take them on head on, but maybe you can find out what happened and fix it. And maybe steal some loot on the way?



DO NOT LOOK AT THE SCREENSHOTS! Unless you want to be spoiled!
Carefully carefully close your eyes when scrolling to the download link, I'd hate for the tomb to be spoiled for somebody! D:

This is the Stoney Falls Underlake Tomb. As I'm sure you figured out, something has happened to Stoney Falls Lake and it's up to your sim to figure it out.

It's intended to replace the lake in Sunset Valley. It can go anywhere, but the entrance might not look appropriate.

I neglected to provide any images, to keep it a mystery, but here are some details:

-8 major rooms with puzzles
-A hidden room or two, with a special prize in one
-Specially formatted actions will cause text in the corner of the screen to narrate what is happening, giving the tomb the feeling of being an adventure, and not just an empty, pointless tomb.
-Lots and lots of loot, and lots and lots of recurring loot.
-Special prize for completion

SPOILERS FOLLOW for what you can find!


The tomb sounds small with only 8 major rooms, but it took my sim over 24 sim hours to get through, and I *knew* the solutions to the puzzles beforehand I am quite proud of a couple of the puzzles, one in particular that I think you will love.


Note that this tomb is not an average tomb in terms of loot. This is the work of the EMPEROR OF EVIL. He's got lots of stuff stashed in here- and on my test run, I made 35,000 simoleons worth of things. But lots of the prizes are intended as keepsakes: The main prize for completion is rare and special and to be treasured. The minor gems can be transfiguricated, as can the metals. But either way, you'll make a bit of cash, for sure.

I spent quite a lot of time making/tweaking this and I hope you enjoy it. :D

Lot Size: 6x5
Lot Price: 54,141

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Wow! This looks like it will be a load of fun. Having a tomb in the hometown is great for practice in tomb-raiding and making enough dough to be able to afford a vacation. Which from the sound of it, my Sim will need after navigating his way through this one. Thanks so much for sharing this!

I hope all the visual and text cues work properly. There are only a couple, but they're a big deal towards how the thing is supposed to work.

The game version shouldnt change anything, I think. That's just what version I built it with, meaning there's a tiny chance you'll have an error if you aren't that or above.

I can't imagine anything would go wrong.
