This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Have your Sims ever wanted to take the plunge into matrimony or, perhaps, take a leap of faith of another kind?

Well, now they can at the beautiful Basilica di San Stefano!!!

This stunning, Florentine-inspired church, with its polychrome marble facade, is the perfect wedding venue. It features a gorgeous, bright Baroque sanctuary in soft pastels of pink and green with gilt detailing. A handy reception room, lounge, and restrooms are nestled in the attached structures, and a small courtyard provides a bit of nature with a small garden. Any Sim with an eagle-eye for architecture and beauty, regardless of creed (assassino or otherwise) will enjoy a visit to the Basilica di San Stefano.

And for some reason, conveniently underneath the tower, there is an ever-present cart and pile of hay... must be some sort of authentic detail. It's just like the real Firenze, Italia!!

Price: 158,620

Lot size: 20x30

Version: 1.55 (Current patch as of July 4, 2013)

Games used: All EPs up to and including University Life. No SPs were used.

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.

I sqaw the picture, I reread the first sentence and the whole thing screaaaaaaaaaaaamed Assassins Creed II at me *much laughter*

Especially since I had rebuild one of the smaller churches from there myself. Incredible work as always and thanks for the good laugh. ^^

I don't know what to say...this is so amazing, I can only imagine the work that must have gone into it. I don't usually peek at S3 stuff as my PC can't run it, but I just had to comment on this one!
