Castle Keep Showcase Thread with Final Version

Castle Keep  35buyci

This is for builders who would like to create medieval style residential and commercial lots for this world. My imagination is running on empty so I thought the little fiefdom would have a much more diverse feel if there were more than one builder.

There are just a few rules I'll ask you to follow to keep everything consistent.

No Custom Content............I know, bummer right? Well a lot of people don't like to download something that has CC that they don't know where it came from. If you have a truly brilliant idea for a lot, but it must contain CC, build it and we will put it in the list of alternative lots available to download separately.

Lot Naming..........The lot name must have the address so I know where it goes. I've already done all the lot names. We can discuss it on a lot by lot basis. If it's a park we certainly want it named something other than it's address.

Lot Descriptions............All lots should start out with the creator so, Built by____________.
Residential Lots: # of bedrooms, # of beds # of cribs.
# of bathrooms
wether it's sparsely furnished or completely decorated. In order to make some houses available as starters you can only furnish them with the basic stuff

Commercial Lots: List what there is to do there, skill builders available,shopping and what kind. Also include what needs can be meet there, for instance, restrooms, kitchenette.

By all means if you'd like to add a more elaborate description of the interior, be my guest.

What can you use to build? ................base game and WA and Riverview. Like I said no custom content. No HELS. You can use buydebug stuff.

Claim your lot!..............After you download the build template you can peruse the unfinished lots on the map. They all have address lines and if there is something specific I want in that spot I've included that in the description, Park, Church, Shopping, ect. After you've chosen your lot come back here and make a post claiming your lot with the address. I will then add your name to the address list. Before you post be sure to check availability in the address list and on prior posts if I haven't updated right away.

One lot at a time, no hogging.

You will have 5 days from that point to post a progress report here, if I don't hear from you I'll assume real life has taken precedence, and you were unable to do anything. The lot will then become available again. You don't need to finish in 5 days, just let me know your working on it .

Submitting Your Lot.......... Once a lot has been completed post an entry in this thread with a link to the download (preferably from the Exchange). It would be nice if you'd post a picture or two of the lot for everyone to see and comment on. Make sure you don't break the thread though (Max 640 pixels width).

Deadlines...............No deadlines, we go till we are finished!

What If I Build A Lot And It Doesn't Appear In the release?
Don't worry. Even if your contribution doesn't make it to the official release (due to any number of reasons), I will set up a lot list in the Castle Keep thread and from there every single lot that was created for this town will be available as alternate downloads for the given lot.

For people who are downloading with the intention of playing this world, I'd strongly advise you not to. It's not finished, it hasn't been play tested,there are no spawners and there are still routing issues that need to be sorted out. If you want to help out and report any bugs you find, floating trees, routing problems, terrain issues, ect. you can report here to my official thread. Also, any suggestions you have would be welcome.

If you have any questions, If I've forgotten to cover something, leave me a post. I'll be checking here often. I'm on PST(Pacific Standard Time) and I'm usually always online between 8pm and 1am. I will of course check periodically throughout the day. You can also send me a personal message here on TS3 Builders Forum, we can even meet at the chat box at a certain time.

Update 4/26: Well, this is interesting. I went back to my earlier version of the file, put in all the addresses, fixed a couple of lot issues, and rebuilt routing data. I exported and installed in game, saved and quit, and reopened with no problems, so I uninstalled it. I went back into CAW, took the same file and changed the description, and the .png image, saved and did the whole reinstall again just to make sure, and guess what? It wouldn't open back up on the second attempt to open the world with the same error message. Why would just changing those two things have any effect? I didn't even save as something else. I went back and changed the .png and description back to what it was, and went through the steps again, and Wa-La, it works.scratch

Here's the file again, after you install, do a save and quit, and then make sure you can get back into it.

You only need to download one of these. The .rar is compressed so you will need an extractor to open it up like winrar. The Sims 3 Pack is a larger file, but it's ready to go once you download.

I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with!

Happy Building!

Castle Keep

a Medieval Fiefdom

I'll be keeping this as an exclusive to TS3 Creators Consortium for a week hoping everyone here will give me feedback on any issues that arise while you play the map. This is my first World so there are some known issues that cannot be avoided at this point unless I start over. There will be a section in the second post for known issues.
Castle Keep  Screen10

I'd like to thank all the wonderful people who helped build all the lots. We had a great time collaborating on this project, and I've made some wonderful Sim friends.The third post will have credits and a photo gallery of Castle Keep.

Castle Keep was built on a medium map
122 lots
No Custom Content
World Adventures Recommended,
but not required

You'll get a lot of Oak Trees
instead of clumps of long grass.

You only need to download one of these. The .zip is compressed so you will need an extractor to open it up like winrar. The Sims 3 Pack is a larger file, but it's ready to go once you download.
Mediafire is directing you to an ad first, you need to click on the link underneath the ad for the asset to go to the download page
*********Final Version**********
Castle Keep.Sims3Pack
*****Uploaded July 10th 2010*****

Check out the second post. I'll be updating with Alternative Lots, Ambitions Lots, and Choose a Castle section. I'll also be listing links to Medieval Custom Content you may find interesting. The Jousting Arena is a separate download due to the fact that if I placed it in Caw, it floods with water.

I can't believe I never saw this! Nor the other world, Spooky Town. Daisylee talks about Spooky Town so much I though she'd CASed it! These worlds are so cool! Beautiful! My worlds got cleaned out when I did a reinstall of Store CC to get the lemon tree and purple eggplant back in my game. Should have just left things alone cause it messed up my store cc and worlds but they needed to be cleaned up cause now that folder looks better. No more 1' or 2' after the world names. Anyway I'm glad I found these worlds. thumbs up
