Halls of marble, works of gold, sapphire velvet, and blossoms of paradise all supported on an island that defies nature! You may find all this difficult to presume without seeing it for yourself. Fortunately, the Book of Belief is right there on that bookcase on the platform and there is a snug couch nearby, but it's much better if the reader stands while reading the book. This is how one ascends to the divine Tattletale Castle, because blessed are they that believe without proof, who can rise up to the meeting place where the celestial father has sent down a sample of the heavens. Tattletale Castle is the embassy of paradise, and it is where the most excellent of sims can earn a better seat in the coming kingdom by watching their neighbors for unbelief, recording their activities, and reporting them so that the chief minister of belief can immediately sever their protection from harm. *narrows eyes* And when the time comes, the celestial father will resurrect them so that he can send them to their eternal agony. Oh, how peachy and satisfying it is, the business of a tattler. Good will always triumph, because evil is dumb!

Downloads:

Download 1 - Tattletale Castle
This is the base game lot with no custom content, official or third party, included and requires patch 1.17. If you have Late Night and the knowledge you can turn areas into apartments.

Download 2 - Tattletale Castle with MultiOwnersDoors 2.1 placed
This version is for those who don't have late night and want to play with more than eight sims on the lot by using either AwesomeMod or Twallan's Master Controller. Requires MultiOwnersDoors 2.1 ( http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=422169 ) and patch 1.17.



Prices:

Download 1 - Tattletale Castle
Lot Price: 376,235
Lot Value Unfurnished: 259,253

Download 2 - Tattletale Castle with MultiOwnersDoors 2.1
Lot Price: 376,753
Lot Value Unfurnished: 259,449



Playing With More Than Eight Sims:

AwesomeMod: ( http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php )
To allow more than eight sims using AwesomeMod, use the Allow Overstuffed Houses setting.

Twallan's Master Controller: ( http://ts3.tscexchange.com/ ) under NRAAS Industries
To Allow more than eight sims using Twallan's Master Controller, click the Town Hall and set Allow More Than 8 Sims in a Household to True.

When playing more than eight sims the interface will still show eight portraits. To select a sim that is not in the portraits section you can switch to them with the Space Bar, or you can right-click on the target sim. It seems a bit clunky, but you'll manage.



Notes:

Don't use the freerealestate cheat to buy the lot underfunded. Give the household enough funds with Motherlode, Kaching, or FamilyFunds
The underside of the floating island presents a giant CFE hanging floor that is visible from underneath and invisible from above.
You might see trees and plants on the level under their actual placement. This is a TS3 bug that affects 1.17.
Sims will often choose to eat their meal at the bar rather than at the dining tables.
This lot was made with patch version 1.17.60.009001

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: 376,235
