So, I was playing the game using the original Eco-Dome and I realized that it just wasn't big enough to hold all the collectibles and relics. So, I made a bigger one.

It still has four bedrooms, each with a full bathroom as well as four conveniently located half-bathrooms.

The address is Pinochle Pinnacle, which is the large lot behind the Goth mansion. It costs $412,657 furnished and $218,992 unfurnished.

Lot Size: 6x6
Lot Price: 412,657/218,992

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.

Once Maxis give us elevators for Sims 3 that's what I'm going to build.

I just used the grass terrain paint so that the edges of the lot would match the surroundings. The original idea was for it to be on a moon or a planet with no atmosphere.

For most of the corridors I used the four paneled dual edged wall with baseboard and dental crown molding, recolored in metal. On the bottom floor( the "old mine" section), I used the barn wall with braces(left & right) recolored in stone and old wood. All of which are under paneling.

Wow. Just to express the august majesty of this house would be onerous. I was not informed of the possibilty of anything similar to this being formulated on The Sims!

P.S. Anxious for the release of the Hive from RE!

It probably won't be a 100% faithful lot, just some kind of laboratory under a mansion. Also, as I said, I want to wait until we get elevators, so who knows when I'll build it.
