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.

It's small so it's pretty hard to see It's on the mainfloor next to the diningroom (upper left corner in the mainfloor screenshot)

You've made me so happy (and slightly sad) because of this house! Happy because this is seriously the first Croft manor I've ever seen that actually looks the way it's meant to! Kudos to you...this is gorgeous!

Sad because my computer won't run The Sims 3 so I'm going to have to wait an eternity (until I somehow manage to get a new computer) in order to actually upload and play this lot! (which I doubt about that.)

2 years later and I've finally gotten a new computer...and let me tell you what...I LOVE this in game! It's almost identical to the Tomb Raider version (though I can see you cut off the training room in order to fit the maze in back, which is fine as it would only have minimal use in game anyway)

Brilliant execution....I made a Lara Croft sim just for this...although I wish you could pick "male" or "female" when you hire a

Hi, Alopex! Thank you for the mansion of Lara Croft for the Sims 3. He is simply gorgeous and so well-built, just like in Tomb raider.
