I've got mine in a basement under the house. Each heir has their own room, locked to everyone.

The mausoleum does need to be an actual place, but as Jaymi pointed out, you can put it underground.

Mine is actually currently on the third floor of my 3 floor house, and I'm thinking of moving it again.

I've got a separate room for each heir under their house underground, and they're inacessible. As far as I know, this is a permissible way to have the mausoleum as long as it's in rooms.

It can be a basement with 7 walls.  It can be a tower in the back yard.  It can be octagons lined up in the back of the lot.  It can be a purchased lot somewhere else in the world.  Allowed but remember if you have problems that can only be fixed certain ways, you could lose the mausoleum and then you would have failed.  My suggestion no matter what you do is to have the place completely inaccessible so that all items within the mausoleum can remain unharmed by a random passerby, burglar or just someone in the house.   If you choose to do upgraded appliances, those appliances can't be in use - they have to be in the mausoleum.   Plants (not fruit) have to be behind a fence so that your Sims can't get to them and get rid of them accidentally.


It's all a part of your strategy how you set it up.  Remember when you place items in the mausoleum, they can't be replaced because someone disposed of the plant or they ate the fruit.  The elixir that is suddenly missing or the nectar bottle that may have been drunk.   It has to be the exact 7 that you place when it counted for your requirement.   Replacements not allowed and because you lost one of your mausoleum pieces, if you have already moved onto the next generation this means you've failed.  End of HOF

Is there a way to put up glass around the display cases? I think I've seen that but not sure how it was done.

You mean putting in a wall and adding windows?  Only certain display cases come with glass that actually sits on the display case and even then Sims can get to it.

Putting up a fence that no one can get around or using the wall & window method.

I almost never have access to my museum/mausoleum by Sims.  That's why I tend to keep it in a basement under the house where I never look and has no stairs.   MoveObjects on can be a big help moving plants indoors so it's not a problem there.

I like using those hidden walls that came with World Adventures. My Sims never discover them on their own so therefore the mausoleum stays safe  :)

I know that seasons/weather are either switched on or off but is there any rules on how long you have to set each season at? E.g could you make the seasons shorter or make your favourite season the longest?

Rica or Metro will correct me if I am wrong but as far as I am aware you are allowed to change the length of each season so long as once set you never change it.

Yep, Rica already noted that in the Options set up part of the rules.

May I ask a question? Not sure if it's been asked before - but here goes: are you allowed to change your next heir's favourite colour/music/food type?
