Sharpen your knives and get your pumpkins ready. The Munsters House is ready for your Munsters Family Sims - or all other sims who are bold enough and dare to make their home in this spooky mansion...

Did I say "spooky"? Well, the house comes without a graveyard and/or ghosts - please bring your own!

I remember the Munsters TV show from my childhood and thought it was a nice idea to create this house for The Sims 3. I didn't find a floorplan for the house, only a few frontview pictures and so the floorplan and interior of the house is not like in the TV show. If you would like to see pictures of the original Munsters House please search the internet for "munsters house", the original pictures I added below are very small but I'm not able to take my own screenshots because I don't have a dvd of the Munsters TV show.

Just for the fun of it and because Halloween is close, the house has some hidden rooms in the basement which you can not see on the floorplan pictures attached to this upload. I made an extra picture which is showing the basement floorplan with all hidden rooms included - please only click on the spoiler button if you want to see that. If you don't want to spoil yourself, don't click on this button!

I checked the file with CUSTARD (big thanks to Delphy for this amazing tool) to make sure that there is nothing included that doesn't belong there.

There's no custom content, no custom patterns but some premium content from the Sims 3 Store used for this build. Some of it is free and most of it is not required for the lot to work in game, however, I recommend to have all those items installed to make the lot look like on the pictures.

There are also 8 items from the „Gothique Living Room“ set used for this house – if you don't already own this set (or would like to buy it for 750 SimPoints), please buy the following items seperately:

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.

Ooh, when couple years back I walked past the TV I had to freeze and look at the screen twice to believe what I saw, it looked so random because usually there's just some reality show going on! And since then I've totally loved the show.
It'll be awesome to play this house!

When I thought about creating something for Halloween the Munsters House was the first that came to my mind. It's a pity that this show is no longer broadcasted here in german TV.

I'm glad that you like the Munsters as much as I do. Maybe I'll do another Halloween Special next year. With having so much time until then I could do something bigger (e.g. a larger basement with more hidden rooms or a whole tomb). We'll see...

Thank you for your lovely comments.

This is the most amazing house!! I've created my own Munsters family (using Whiterider's Frankenstein mask for Herman) and played the house for a few hours. It is so detailed and so complex and so atmospheric. You are an amazing creator and an expert builder. Thanks for this great piece of nostalgia!

Sorry for my late reply. I was rather inactive at MTS for quite some time.

@ edejan: Thank you very much. I'm glad you enjoyed playing with it. :-)

@ ginovanta: Building the house is so long ago that I don't really remember exactly how I did the fence, however, I often work with half walls and/or the cheat moveobjects - sometimes I place the fence or wall first and then add columns with moveobjects. Try that or ask me again if it doesn't work for you.
