Story of the Inventor's mansion

Once upon a time there was a man who dedicated his whole live to science - Albert Simstein. His head was filled with ideas of new inventions and his house was full of crazy machines.

Albert had a big dream. Since his childhood no one really took him seriously. Adults were just shaking their heads and whispering about how strange this child was and other children never wanted to be friends with little Albert. He spent most of his time alone only with piles of scrap dreaming about a big invention which would amaze the whole world.

Albert was very talented and soon he became a succesful inventor. One day, while working on a rather difficult project something went wrong and half of his house kind of exploded...The explosion caused a big damage to the neighbors and they wanted him to pay for the reparations.

Because of the lack of money Albert was forced to do something crazy. He decided to try transmuting objects into gold - and guess what happened? Yes he transmuted himself so now his house is here ready for auction!

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.

It's great! Thanks! Though I have to ask, how did you delete the basement walls so you could see the second basement and add rails? I keep trying to do the same, but it doesn't work, just deletes some of my floor with my wall...

Hi MiaKit,
I am not sure If I understand correctly but If yes then its really simple:
You have to delete the floor while holding ctrl. When you use the hammer tool it not deletes only the floor but the whole basement section (walls and floors too).

Feel free to ask again If its not what you wanted to know

OMG. Sweet Mother of Nature. It was so natural. You're very talented. One of the well-made house I've ever seen in The Sims 3. It's a masterpiece.

This is Amazing! :) I hope that there isn't Too much added by Showtime or Outdoor Living Stuff, but if there is, I'll just use something else as a sort of work around. Anyway, Thanks a bunch!

Hi,
Well, I think that showtime is really needed for details...Most of the roof decor is from showtime as well as the effects in the basement laboratory (different lights in specific sections of the laboratory, toxic water in pool etc.)...Outdoor living stuff only adds two things If I remember correctly: Outdoor fireplace and a little trolley (You can see both objects here: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_wV5JMD1OI...59c2d0bd_z.jpg).
