Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This "Mermaid loved castle", located near a sea, is designed as a stage for my mermaid story:
"Once upon a time, there is a little mermaid. One day, she encouraged herself to explore the human(sims) world..." This is that story, you know, that famous one. I should save my words to the story here.

To the architecture:
Here is the first look - a scene of mermaid's arrival in the world of her prince:

(lot size: 50x50)

You find a mini mermaid-stone-island middle in a sea. One can swim in the sea, climb on the mermaid-stone-island and sit down there. At the coast of the sea is there a castle. The main part of this castle is mount-shaped. There is a water way to the castle and a country way to it through a gate with watchtowers. The castle is not very large, but it reached the requirement as a residence lot. There are a sea-sight living room, a start furnished master bedroom, a guest bedroom, a big kitchen, a great hall and some small rooms. If you look around the sea, it is landscaped with cliff, meadow, beach and so on.

(lot size: 40x30)
More screenshots at the top of this entry will give you the further impression. All the shots are numbered. Each one has a short discription.

2 Sizes:
As the title mentioned, 2 sizes lots in this theme are available: it is the 50x50 one and the 40x30 one. I made these two variants to let we have more choices of it's location in the Sims 4 worlds. The two lots are basically similar, but different in several points:
- the 50x50 one has a bigger sea, a ship at harbor, beaches and a peninsula more; the sea in the 40x30 one is smaller, but has other sea floors and walls - with shells and corals; the cliffs and rocks around the sea and castle in the two lots are also different;
- in the 50x50 one is there a visible fish spot as well as fountain on the beach near the castle; in the 40x30 one is the fish spot and fountain hidden in the rocks. But the fishes in the sea are visible, and, there is a mini waterfall in a corner near it;
- the castle in the 50x50 one has more towers and walls in it's south-west corner;
- the furniture in the castle are little different positioned.
- Price: 50x50 - 269.132; 40x30 - 172.533

Resized items:


Some decorations could return to its small size, when you first time open this lot. You may use hot keys “Shift” + “ ] ” (English keyboard) or “Shift” + “ ´ “ (German keyboard) to increase the size of objects. Following, I list these items with short description, it's official name in German (because my game is in German), how many times are they enlarged (cf. two pictures above):
lot size 50x50:
- two dark stones on the mermaid-stone-island: Stein "Stiller Wächter", x 1; Stein der Vielseitigkeit, x 1;
- a middle big cliff near castle: Mittelgroßer Fels, x 3;
- the ship: Kapitän Chaz MacFreelings Galeone, x 20.
lot size 40x30
- a dark stone on the mermaid-stone-island: Wunderstein, x 4;
- a middle big cliff near castle: Mittelgroßer Fels, x 3;
- a stone near the wall: Stein "Stiller Wächter", x 3.

- These are basic game lots. There is no deluxe upgrade content in both sizes;

Sorry for this slightly off-topic question but I'm puzzled: what is "deluxe upgrade content"? (By the way: your lot is fantastic!!!)

It's the digital content of party night.

I'm searching for every new idea to deal with the Sims! To me this game's just like a tool. One can change and create everything he/she wants!

These are simply stunning! I'll probably circle back and put them in my game once all expansions are out, trying to avoid hacks and other things until then.

Could you possibly be any more talented? This is absolutely stunning! I love what you've done with the pool, and the railing at the top of the turrets is a simple idea with fantastic effect. Great work!
