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

Description:

Welcome to Lucas College - Preparing Children For Success In Life. This is one of my biggest project in my life and this took me over 7 days to complete this school. This school has more than 20 rooms and it has 3 levels. This school was made for my Machinima "Westlife - I'm Already There". I started building level A with few classrooms and I fully detailed my two classrooms. I didn't want to throw my hardwork away so I decided to continue to make the school bigger and realistic. The name Lucas was from my dad's bestfriend who died May 31st and I will never forget him. I couldn't find any good name for my school so I chose Lucas for my College. The canteen has Bauhaus garage door and the cash registers are playable. I tested it, no broken pathways and it works really good! Every canteen need Bauhaus garage door and we all know that. The set up the library really good and it's a good place to have a quite read. This school works for elementary children and young adults. The full furnished final total of this lot is 1,554,527 Simoleon YES 1,554,527 Simoleon! For this hard work for this wonderful school, please "Thank" my wonderful work and thank you to all Sims 3 Official Facebook fans who likes my school so much. =).

Update Recovery:

8th July 2013 12:35AM

I had a lot of feedbacks from the creators & members about my file that doesn't work. I noticed I accidentally removed something I shouldn't remove with CUSTARD. The file is suppose to be around 1MB's to 2MB's instead KB's.

8th July 2013: 02:15PM

I separated the files and they are both compressed. Part 1 & Part 2 are included in the download page.
Before you download. Go to "Files" tab and follow my install instructions.

9th July 2013: 08:13AM

Fixed the instructions.
I provided a tutorial video how to install Lucas College properly.

Required custom content:

The rug is a rabbit hole school. It allows your Sims to walk on the carpet and fade away. Don't worry about you Sim, your Sim will go directly to a rabbit hole school. This rug needs to be required on this Community Lot and if not, your children will be stuck home and have no education. This rabbit hole school works and it's fixed for Sims 3 Pets.

Halt before you download:

If you just download 'Part 1 Master Installation'. You won't be able to continue the installation. That is why I upload 'Part 2 as extension file' for Lucas College. Please follow my instructions below and/or watch my tutorial video.
--------
1. Download both rar files Part 1 & Part 2.
2. Both rar files Part 1 & Part 2 must be together in the desktop or any folder location.
3. Open Part 1 without extracting it into the desktop or other location. You should see "Lucas College.Sims3Pack" in the rar file.
4. Double click it and the box should appear "Next volume is required." Click Browse.
5. Double click "MTS_RomerJon17_1374628_Lucas College.part 2".
6. Click "OK" to continue the installation.
7. The Sims 3 Game Launcher should appear like this. Let The Sims 3 Game Launcher to work.
8. Lucas College should be installed. I already installed mine.
9. Enjoy my College and don't forget to thank my work.
-------
7-zip

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.

I deleted my message on accident lol Just wanted to inform you RomerJon17 that I appreciate the PM that I received, but Delphy's program was incapable of extracting anything from the sims3pack. Perhaps you could provide an additional upload link by simply packaging the lot without removing any of the CC? or copying the raw package file within the Library folder? That would be much appreciated.

I can't do that due to copyright reasons.

It's your own choice you download or not download all the CC. I'm really sorry I used too many CC because I had to make the school look realistic, especially the canteen! xD

Yes, there seems to be a problem with the file. Because of it, I also checked it with the Custard and even though there should at least be the lot file, the Custard comes completely empty. Also, even a tiny house with no cc is over 1 MB's, so the 2 KB's is definitely indication of something. Otherwise, a very nice school.

To all the creators and new members,
I noticed I removed one lot file with CUSTARD and the file size is around 30MB's. I tried to zip it with WinRAR to decrease the file size. But it decreased only 14MB's. :/ Mod The Sims allows only 10MB maximum download. I have to discuss one of the moderators. The school will be back shortly. I hope...

Best regards,

RomerJon17

^ Nope. But I did actually have to rename both files to "Part 1" and "Part 2" in order for 7-zip to extract the sims3pack successfully. Really odd.

So in conclusion, the rar files are indeed not corrupt (thank god), but some 7-zip users may need to rename the files...

Do not rename the rar files and/or the Sims3pack. It won't work..
Did you follow my YouTube tutorial how to install Lucas College properly.
I recommended WinRAR

----
It's funny some people forgot to download Part 2 is extension file. :/

Yeah I've extracted .rar files in the past using 7-zip, but in order to extract this file both parts needed to be renamed as "Part 1" and "Part 2" which worked for me...

I understand and I didn't know 7-zip need to extract the files both parts and needed to be renamed as "Part 1" and "Part 2". I always use Winrar. Thanks Jasumi.
