Please feel free to use this space to share all of the builds you come up with that make me feel like I must be playing an entirely different game altogether.

    Haha, this is definitely one thread I won't be showcasing my builds, not that I actually have any. 😄

    Really excited though to see what our oh so talented builders come up with.

    Okies, I have two castles on the go right now - a tradition grey castle in Henford, and a glistening pink and white princess castle (with 21 bedrooms for 21 Disney princesses). When finished I'll figure out how to embed photos here!

    you can download from the gallery, there are so many excellent castles available there, and edit and add all these bells and whistles from this kit to them @Simmingal

    This is going to be really good. I can't wait to see what some of my favorite builders can do with this.

    Bluebeard's Keep is a medieval fantasy castle project that I've been working on for quite some time now. I stopped developing most of my 67 castles as soon as Castle Kit was announced.
    This evening I snapped up both community voted kits and replaced some of Bluebeard's battlements, windows and wall textures with the newer items. It's far from finished, as one can see.
    By the time it's done it'll be the next Dark Ages.

    The items in this kit are 👌🏼.

    That's much better than my effort today. I forgot to check the front view and when I built the base I found I couldn't turn it around as it was too wide for my lot! I like the stonewalls and floors though.

    I was sitting for hours today, and kept bulldozing over and over and so far all I've come up with is a wall and a gate. :D
    I swear I see new grey hairs popping out on my head!

    hmm one thing I am wondering about
    can I get picture of sim behind the battlements? anyone with the kit? just curious if it would actually cover a sim if they were up there

    That’s a fantastic castle, @CAPTAIN_NXR7 ! The main reason I’m sure I’ll get this kit one day is not so I can build with it, but so I can browse on the gallery for amazing builds like that!

    Maybe those residing the castle would send up kids to do that hard battle work? They are shorter. Teens might go free.

    (don't have the kit)

    oh I just noticed its same height as the fence in preview :sweat_smile: well maybe realistic size one would have looked goofy in sims anyway and for me it was always gonna be occult castle so thats fine I guess magical toddler powers are defending the castle then

    Just a point on early medieval castles. The moat wasn't a scenic extra. It was a defence, right up against the castle walls, limiting the ways in which the castle could be assaulted in times of war with scaling ladders, battering rams etc. It also was a dump for the privies (loos), so castles usually were evacuated for months until they were cleared up! Some people had horrible jobs in those days. :#o:)

    Random question for the castle builders - do you find the larger builds are laggy? I've tended to notice that a lot.

    Thank you for your kind words @Simburian @mightysprite @FreddyFox1234 @SERVERFRA !😊
    This one won't be ready for a while, but I've been working on a few "smaller" castles and hope to share 1 or 2 on the gallery soon, for those that are interested.

    @Simmingal, these walls are NOT💥 🛡️BATTLEMENTS🛡️💥, they are 🌼"Battlements"🌼. They solely exist to make a manor look like a "Castle", NOT to - for example- offer protection against Crumplebottom's handbagattacks.
    Whenever I need to compare a sim's height against the height of a half wall or other objects while in build mode, I use:
    MANNEQUINS!
    Provided that you have Get To Work installed.

    MANNEQUIN.jpg

    Looking dramatic in his underpants as per usual.

    I always put one or two mannequins in my WIP builds as they can be moved around freely, while I adjust the heights of my half walls (which I often use to build battlements/ parapets with) among other things. Most importantly - unlike our musical chair loving sims, these guys don't complain.
    Random question for the castle builders - do you find the larger builds are laggy? I've tended to notice that a lot.

    100% when building, and I play my game on a space rocket. Not so much when playing.
