Dementé Insanitarium

Built in 1853 and deinstitutionalized in 1962, Dementé Insanitarium was named after the first owner and headmaster of the asylum, Vladmir Dementé, who passed down the right of the institution and kept it in the family for a couple generations, up until the last headmaster whom was not of family blood. The last Dementé to head the research at the asylum was named after his great grandpa, and mysteriously disappeared after over three decades of running the place. Nobody has stepped inside since the state closed it up, but if you are daring enough to venture inside, you may learn the secret of the disappearance of Vladmir Dementé.


This tomb is not really about puzzles like most tombs, it's more about exploring the entirety of the lot (which personally I think is like a big maze), as well as the telling of a story by following in the steps of a patient who planned to escape from the asylum. This place is huge, and uses gratuitous amount of custom content, so it might take your game a while to load it all, but in the end it is definitely worth it if you'd like to get creeped out and open up to your sense of adventure (there might also be a good amount of cash to find all around in there).

One extremely important thing about this tomb is that there are several rooms that I have rigged to lock you in. This means that you will be trapped until you die of starvation. THIS TOMB CAN KILL YOU. These rooms however are marked as tomb rooms but can be revealed without stepping foot in them. It would seem pretty obvious which rooms would lock you in once you get to them, but just in case you don't realize it or if you accidentally take a wrong turn, try to save often.

Let me know if there's something not working or if there's a part that you can't get past. I've tested again and again, every room on the lot, and it all should work!


A Few Pictures:








Requirements:

This lot requires ALL ELEVEN Expansion Packs, but absolutely no Stuff Packs.

As far as custom content goes, you'll need to go out and download and install all these. It may seem like a lot but each download adds to the authenticity and creepiness of the whole lot, inside and out.

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.

This is truly amazing :O

One quick question, though. I have every EP except Into the Future; will the lot still work and do I just have to deal with a few missing objects, or do I have to be patient and wait until ITF gets affordable?

I think the only things i used ITF for were plants outside. So nothing really important, you could definitely play without it!

Woooooow I love this I totally LOVE THIS. Its so scary and creepy and bloody and all!!! The atmosphere is incredible. I just cant put into words how amazing this is...I am not using CC anymore but I can totally understand that its necessary in this lot...

It is a shame that there are no windows with bars in sims 3...It would be great to use them for this building.
I noticed some floating tiles on the left and I think that it would be better to remove them even if it cause holes in the ceiling because it wouldnt look strange in such a building. The floating tiles kind of ruin the feel since they are so white...

But whatever...It is amazing as it is and I want to thank you for this Squircle!
Good job!

The floating tiles are a bug that comes with doing CFE on a lot, and sometimes you can delete them, sometimes you cant. Luckily you can only see the tiles when your camera height is lower then the level the tiles are on, so its bad for pictures, but doesn't affect the look while you're playing. But thank you so much for checking this out! And I was totally thinking the same thing about barred windows, so i used the windows that are on there and recolored the grids a rusty metallic color. Only something you notice if you're really looking at it, but this lot is complete only with all the little details.

I just mean there's no stuff packs required, I have all but three installed. There shouldn't be any reason to not be able to have stuff packs installed with this lot. Sorry about the confusion!

It looks amazing, you can tell that a lot of thought has gone in to almost every aspect of the creation. Although looking at the pictures did make me jokingly wonder whether Jessica Lange was about to jump out and start singing The Name Game.
But you really have done an amazing job creating the perfect atmosphere. Well Done!

I created and tested it with 1.67. Have you ensured that all the required expansion packs and custom content packs are installed and are running properly?

Lot looks great, but I also can't figure out how to enter. Been over the whole lot with a fine-toothed comb, but there's obviously something I'm missing. Any pointers?

I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow, to feel inspired, to fathom the power, to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral of our divinity, and still be a human.

I noticed some required CC is from Skeletal Screams, and her last entry about the items (wall items) says she could not fix them. They were causing crashes if you clicked on them with the clone, demolish, or design tool. (Just wanted to warn folks, its from the Broken World Set) I plan on making myself a note not to click on them, lol, because I saw this lot in Vladimir Evin's Silent Hill 2: 11th Communion on Youtube and must have it! If anyone wants to see this lot in video, I recommend it, his films are VERY well done and the lot looks awesome.

I wanted to correct my statement here about this lot being in Vladimir Evin's machinima. Squircle checked out the video, and while there are similarities, it is not this lot. Having said that, I have just entered this lot in-game, and it is awesome! Sorry about the mix up folks.
