Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


This lot was built for Round 3 of QBUILDERZ's „Groundwork: A TS3 Foundation Challenge". Originally it had a Renault Twizy (electric drive) car placed on the parking spot in front of the house, however, it seems no longer available for download and so I removed it.

If you would like to see my original round 3 entry post for this lot (including background story, additional pictures), please click here.

Moonbase Beta was built in a world called Bellatrix. Originally there was a 64x64 lot at this spot of Bellatrix but I deleted that lot and replaced it with a 30x30 lot (see placement picture and use the world editor if you want to do the same).

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.
