Palace III 5×5 (Trianon 2013)

After several critics regarding Palace II‘s lack of elegance, and Palace I‘s messy floor plan, too few rooms, non-rectangular rooms and bad interior design, I decided in April 2013 to build a new The Sims model of Trianon Palace from Floresti, Romania, built by Cantacuzino Family in 1910 and abandoned (more details).

The palace contains 4 bedrooms, …

Federal Fortress 3×3 452 (Maxis makeover)
