The Halls of Moria

The world is grey, the mountains old,
The forge’s fire is ashen-cold;
No harp is wrung, no hammer falls:
The darkness dwells in Durin’s halls;
The shadow lies upon his tomb
In Moria, in Khazad-dûm.

J.R.R. Tolkien


Although Moria may look immense to some, I just want to note that its size is nothing but an illusion. In trying to achieve a playable lot, the lot file size now makes it one of my smaller lots at only 4 stories tall and 2.84MB in size.

- Furnished: No… it’s in ruins.

Custom Content NOT Included:

*NOTE: Please DO NOT upload this lot to the Exchange and/or any pay sites without my consent.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

this is magnificent! unfortunately, i can't download it because i only have OFB and Uni.. is there a way for you to make a simpler version w/o needing any other expansion? or possibly just the door? if not, no worries and thanks for sharing!

No harp is wrung, no hammer falls:
The darkness dwells in Durin’s halls;
The shadow lies upon his tomb
In Moria, in Khazad-dûm.

these (or atleast first two) lines are from summoning song 'ashen cold' just for notice good work on house too
