Story of the floating castle

When night falls upon this town strange inhuman screams coming from the beach can be heard. Only few people dared to come closer to search for the source of these terrible noises. But what they found wasn't what they expected. There was a castle which would seem normal If it wasn't for the fact that the whole building was floating above the sea.

Secret cave

Why? No one was able to find the reason but maybe there is a place out there where the answer lies.

Basic information

There are two lots which you need to download - The floating castle and Secret cave. Both of them are made for Moonlight falls and need to be placed properly:

Lot price:
Floating castle74 145141329
Secret cave95 557755 573

Lot size:
Floating castle64 x 64
Secret cave40 x 20


If you want to play this lot as adventure then purchase the secret cave lot as your main home and then the floating castle as your additional home and start playing in the cave.
  • When you go to the first room of the tomb you wil need to shift + ctrl click on the urn and set "always appears as tombstone FALSE" then click again and set it to "always appears as tombstone TRUE"
  • On the floating castle lot there will be two trashcans so place one on the platform outside near the mailbox and the second inside the kitchen.

    Playing as a ghost is recommended for better access to the house! But feel free to play here with any creature you like.

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.
