Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Villa de la Morte
Hidden deep in the swamps of Twinbrook this villa stands as a testament of times gone by. Build in 1865 A.D. by Lord Longbottom as a rememberance of his dear departed wife it still stands strong today. A lot of the original victorian interieur has survived the test of time, albeit a bit run-down.

This was my second entry for the foundation challenge, for the full entry go here.

Enter at your own risk!

- Due to the amount of items used this house will be a heavy load to bare for slower computers.
- Some shop items have been used throughout the house and will be changed to a random item of the same type if you do not own them!

The shop items used:

- The Benet Phonograph
- Oval Gothique Painting
- Love in Darkness
- Reynard The Raven
- Knighting of Sir Asad
- Galileo's Observer

I believe those are all the shop items used, if I missed one or two please tell me so I can update this list. I have to add though that none of these items are required, although I do advice to get The Benet Phonograph if nothing else since the sound systems the game provides are all way too modern for the setting.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Value:
Furnished - §150.037
Unfurnished - §95.759

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
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.

What store items? It's a beautiful house, but I want to know what, exactly, I need to have.

I have added the list of shop items used. I should have thought about doing that beforehand.

You're such a great artist, with a big eye of detail! I saw your Hansel and Gretel cottage in the Foundation-contest, and that was just a "wow". I hope you like compliments. Hehe. Cos you're also good at capturing the right moments in your pics.

sry but: featured? wtf
#15 Old 12th Aug 2010 at 1:59 PM
theRemon - if you're wondering WHY it's been featured... it hasn't. Or atleast not YET (I'm gonna be refrshing this page every few seconds now 'cause it's just bound to be featured after I post this ).
And if you're wondering why it hasn't been featured... well, it hasn't been featured YET. Uploads considered for features have to be tested extensively (atleast so i've been led to beleiev on numerous occasions).

AND OMG THIS IS SOOO AWESOME! I remember seeing this is the foundations thread.. :o

Thanks for the kind words guys!

The round 3 and 4 houses of the foundation challenge have also been uploaded and approved now. So time to either become a soldier in "A Soldiers Welcome" (R3 entry) or live in "The Old Cottage in the Woods" (R4 entry) where the alternative version of Hansel and Gretel took place!
