    This is incredible! I completely adore it. You have done a wonderful job. :mrgreen: I am a seriously hopeless Anglophile and feel that there is never enough proper "Englishness" to play with in the Sims. I am really looking forward to downloading this! :thumbup:

    What do you guys think about the 3 flags? on residential lots? its a trick you can do in caw since flags are only available for commercial lots when in game play.

    Also here is the layout of the inside

    The 3 flags look great! :) With the flags there, it seems to indicate that the royals are home and are in residence there. The flags would be great to see as sims approach the build.

    This work is wonderfull, I´ll start prepearing SV to hold it right now, could you post a bird´s eye overview to see where exactly in SV is this situated?, I want the hight of the ground to fit the most, and I want to copy the soroundings and the aproaching road, so when you upload it I will place it in more or less the same grounds.

    This is an amazing work. I recently saw a documentary on this house - just the grounds. And I can't believe someone would actually spend the time to recreate it in such detail.

    It is beautiful. Congratulations and well done. I hope to see more pictures.

    Of course I will not reupload if your are thinking of it. I want it just for my private use, to play in your building the way I think it should be played.

    The interior looks very grand ! :) The gold of the furnishings is very elegant and royal! It looks great how you have done the carpet and have the window sitting area. The candles look great on the fireplace. It will be great to see more pictures of the interior! Your build is looking great both exterior and interior! :)

    For Sims that are standing inside your manor and looking up at the roof of the dome, it would be a very grand sight to see! :) It looks great the way you have placed the statues/sculptures up there. Great patterned design.

    These rooms look very nice! :) Very nice shade of pink that you used for the library/music room. Very elegant furnishing of this area. Great layout of the room area. It looks great the way you have placed the seating. It will be a great place for sims to sit and rest, whilst reading a book and either listening to or playing a musical instrument. The pictures on the walls near the instruments suit the room well. The way you have done the curtains looks very nice. Very elegant shades of gold and brown and grand furnishings you have used in the lady's chamber! The picture behind the bed looks great.
    Your build continues to look so very nice! Great interiors! :)
