This is amazing! Why the heck would EA remove a fully-functional object that lends depth to- ... oh, right. EA.

Still, thanks for adding this functionality back into the game. Now one of the greatest symbols of France has a purpose other than increasing polygon count~!

Amazing. Simply amazing. I thought the Eiffel Tower object was purely decorative! I had no idea that those codes were even in the game! Truly a great mod. Thanks!

You can't take the stairs in the real Eiffel tower unless the elevator is down, though -- part of how they make their money. ;-)

Anyway, the reason why the Eiffel tower wasn't included in the game is pretty obvious -- because the Eiffel Tower's in Paris. Champs Les Sims, on the other hand, resembles a little French winery village somewhere far up the Seine.

(Of course, that didn't stop them from putting the Pyramids and the Sphinx in Al Simhara, in spite of the fact that both are pretty much smack dab in the middle of a massive city these days.)

In fact, part of what I've pondered over repeatedly is what French gamers (who have The Sims 3) and Egyptian gamers (who also have The Sims 3) think about World Adventures. It's too bad they're done making expansions or I would suggest "The Sims 3: Viva Las Simgas", where people would visit the big city, lose all of their money to gambling, and become morbidly obese from any food they eat there. Since we're talking about preconceived biases and all. ;-)

Thanks guys for the comments and translations. Currently working on adding translations AND updating the to enable Field Trips.

@MariTom & Luktop & anyone interested in translating: Thanks, but those texts should already have been translated by EA. The only things I need translated are
Take Elevator To Top With Group / Take Elevator To Top With Pack / Take Elevator To Top With Date
Take Stairs To Top With Group / Take Stairs To Top With Pack / Take Stairs To Top With Date
As for the text for the description of the Wondrous View buff, that should also be already translated by EA, but I suggest you go in game and read it first and IF you feel it should be changed feel free to tell me what you want it changed to. (I only changed the English one so that it would fit in all worlds besides France)

@SuthernDel: Did you try using ALL 3 packages at once, because you should only use ONE at a time

@JT' : I personally like Champs Les Sims as it is now actually, though I did read that EA did at first perhaps to make the France world a town with the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe like they did with Al Simhara. For better or worse they scrapped the idea, but not before actually making the objects and even creating the code for the Eiffel Tower AND all the interactions AND the Wondrous View moodlet which have all been left in the game ever since. Just thought it'd be fun to make it functional again (plus it annoyed me that though EA explicitly removed all interactions from it, the default Eiffel Tower still displays a blank map tag even when I just want to use it decoratively in town)
