This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
http://upload.modthesims2.com/attac...id=289705&stc=1


Let me first say; I’m proud to present “The Lahore Museum”.
Therefore we have spared no expense in the provision of world famous paintings; The Mona Lisa, The night-watch, Olympia, La Goulue arrives at Moulin Rouge, Adoration of the lamb, Massacre of the Innocents, Composition number 10 and many more are brought together for this unique re-opening of our The Lahore Museum.

In the museum you will find a total of 83 priceless paintings by world famous artists.

http://upload.modthesims2.com/attac...id=289707&stc=1

How to install:
To install open the RAR-file and double click the installable package file, if you have a problem with installing this lot I suggest you visit this page first (http://www.modthesims2.com/help.php ) before you post any questions regarding install failures.

What do you get:
The museum itself fully furnished:
• 6 large exposition rooms
• 3+2 bathrooms (note: the 2 extra bathrooms on the second level are not furnished)
• 3 big hallways with elevator
• Bar and Restaurant
• 83 Paintings from world famous painters. These can also be used to decorate your homes and community lot’s with, and can be sold in stores.

A ReadMe text with information from all the painters and their famous work inside the rar.

*** Update (5-7-2006):

The second rar-file contains a tour guide (where to find the artists work) + a screeny from the most expensive painting inside the museum (Rubbens, His altarpieces The Raising of the Cross (1610) and The Descent of the Cross (1611–1614) for the Cathedral of Our Lady. The highest bid ever for a painting, but never sold, it is made of 24 carrat gold and is part of the huge art collection inside the Cathedral of Our Lady in Ghent, Belgium).

There is no custom content used in the building of the museum itself.
It is stated that you will need the OFB expansion for this lot to show up and maybe for some of the paintings also.
For the paintings I’ve used recolours on the existing maxis paintings, so these are the only custom content in the package file and are made by myself.
I also used for every painting a picture of the real paintings so they should also be authentic.

Be the manager:
Buy it for 458,135 § as a real estate and you are the new Museum owner, place a open/closed sign in it and dont forget the ticket machine.

Lotsize 5x4 pretty big

The Hermitage would be a great project for you to do next! I just came back from a visit to St. Petersburg and was able to go to the Hermitage while I was there, it has beautiful architecture. I hope to see this on here sometime.

Recently i've done the colosseum, maybe i could try it, after all it's a world wonder.
I only have my doubts about the detail inside it.

It sure would make a magnifficent building, to add to my collection.

Thank you to all, for the nice replies!

Taj-Mahal seems interesting, just like the Hermitage that was suggested!
I will keep them in my ToDo building list, once i find the right tools, objects and maybe i need to make some things myself, but i will certainly try it out!

Hi KinkaGirl,
If you have Cleaninstaller you can uncheck the lot from it, that way only the paintings will install!
The building is made in an ofb game so it requires you to have also ofb, but maybe the pictures will work for other versions!
If you still not able to install them, let me know and i will upload the paintings sepperate!

I love the museum especially the paintings. I have a question though. How were the paintings made? They seem like clones from regular paintings but I wanted to know. I was also wondering if and how I can change the prices of the paintings and any paintings painted by sims. Like I have some artist sims I want their paintings to be worth considerably more than other paintings. Thanks for any help anyone can provide. Again, to the creator of the museum, it is AWESOME!

At first, I wasn't going to download this because of all the new objects. But once I saw that the paintings were recolors of Maxis paintings, I gladly changed my mind! Thank you for thinking of people like me with too many custom objects already!
