Lot Name: Amazing Grave

Description:


A. Brief Intro:

Amazing Grave is a grave lot for everyone. You can name it for glorifying and memorising your pass-away beloveds. You can name it with all those you hate (probably including me) and curse them. You can name it whatever for funs like I've done here! You can customise the interior design to suit your creature sims or dead sims or haunting sims. A set of characters is already included in "Moi_AmazingGrave_Tiles_char.zip" @ the above links for message customisation. And if the character set is still not enough, make your own customised tiles with "Moi_AmazingGrave_MakeyourOwnCharTiles.rar" (a bmp template 4 tiles). By the way, the front pic is just for fun, on't take it too seriously. No offense!

F. File Decompression & Install Tips:
F0. Whether the furnished or the unfurnished version, only 7-zip (.7z) has been used unless specified.
F1. unzip the zip downloaded file with zip-supported compressor or above or else by right-clicking and "extract...(whichever way)"
F2. you'll find a file with an extension ".7z" or called 7-zip. just decompress/extract it as if it's "rar" or "zip" when WinRAR >=3.41, 7-zip-manager >=3, IZArc >=3.5, power archiver >=9, ZipGenius >=6 or else... by right-clicking and "extract...(whichever way)"
F3. double click on the sims2pack to open it. To install it with Clean Installer is recommended coz you can choose what to install to avoid unwanted or redundant contents installed into your game system.
F4. Installation of a lot without ensuring the presence of the corresponding terrain paints can be destructive to the lot files.
F5. [No restart of the game] is needed to [install a lot in sims2pack file] and [access the installed lot @ "house bin"]. The trick is by any means to have your neighbourhood screen reload. Say, entering a lot and go back to the neighbourhood screen, or switching to another neighbourhood. After a neighbourhood screen has reloaded, the installed lot will appear in the house bin without the game restart. This is true when the Clean Installer is used.
F6. Floor tiles, wallpapers, terrain paints have to be installed earlier than or at the same time as the lot is installed for them to show up in a lot.


G. Play-tips:
G1. Whenever geting a new house, you can scan and choose for things in the package with Clean Installer before installation
G2. You can ALWAYS check the playability of the lots to your system @ lot-building mode in the neighbourhood screen before playing them.
G3. Should you need, you can play-test it with the cheat "BoolProp TestingCheatsEnabled (True/false)".

As for those floor tiles, wallpapers, and terrain paints with "Moi_" prefix, they were made/"sim"-ulated by this lot author. Thus, they're provided with the lot "as if" any other free things. Credits are not to be claimed on but these floor tiles, wallpapers, and terrain paints are regarded as the world public's things. So, feel free to use them however and redistribute them wherever with no permission needed, except that file renaming or any direct and/or indirect commercial usage is prohibited. (included)
