Carnegie Library

My Round 3 Entry for Qbuilderz's Foundation Contest was this wonderful library, inspired by any given number of small-town libraries, funded by the philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie.

Resting on a 30x30 lot, this modest "home" of books and learning is both imposingly stately and compact. There is ample parking for bicycles and vehicles of the more motorized kind, a patio with chess tables and benches, and even a few swings for those who may need to stretch their limbs after a good bout of the more sedentary activity of reading.

The soft colors of the exterior are in contrast with the rich, dark woods and tiles of the interior spaces. There are shelves of books and reading areas across all three floors. The upper story has a room dedicated to children and the main floor has a slightly brighter lit room for studying and computers. The basement has a small office for staff, restrooms for ladies and gentlemen, and a community meeting room (often used by pitiable fools to discuss their crippling addictions (to simulation video games)).

Price: 149,894

Lot size: 30x30

Version: 1.63

Games used: WA, Amb, LN, Gen, Pets, SN, Seasons, Uni, IP, and Fast Lane.

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.
