rolleyes If you really want a big place to work, I suggest these two Houses.

Be sure and go here if you have not ever done it: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/SimsBunkerArchive/
Get the The pedportalzip..

You must have this in your catalog..
Put it in your Downloads folder and name a folder Bunker Sims.
Put the file in there.. Open the game in the Misc, misc section. It is a bright green small table.

Now all that you have to do is go to any Houses folder; they all contain these two invisible lots wink




Decide before hand, what town you want to change the view, because it will change your overall 'view' dry
We only look, we don't play there no

So now go to your Houses folder in the town you are going to change.

Inside the Houses folder, make a new subfolder; rename the folder whatever you want. I put a date on mine smile




Decide which lots you want to try this out on.
I would suggest 1 or 2 for your first trial effort.
Just pick up house01 or house02 and put them in that subfolder..
They are safe from any mess ups..

Next you copy House00 or House11. You drop that in the same area, and rename the copy House01 or House02... or whatever lot you want to try biggrin





These are big lots. House00 is dead empty.
Nothing there. It needs all of the Bunker Sims stuff.
You have to put a sim on the lot to do this of course. yes

With House 11 there are sidewalks and crosswalks and you still must put stuff on the lots.


Best way to decide, what do I need from the Bunker Table?
Bring up the cheat window and type in prepare_lot ; hit enter.
The game will tell you what is missing.

Mailbox, Trashcan, Phoneline, Pedportal, Carportal

These five items are very much needed for a lot to be a working one. So be sure your lot has these..




Oh yes, a sweet extra is here: http://www.somesimthings.com/index.htm

Hedda has a portal zip that you should have also.
Her tables will show you the portals and then hide them.
She also has the ped and car portal. clap

Only the bunker table has the phone line.
Several other places have the mailbox.
It's easier to just get it at bunker sims and get it in the game.




Good Luck and remember, it's fun to use big lots.
When you build a structure, the game will not 'show' you the entire lot.
It hides some of it. But it is playable.

The 00 lot is so big, the sims take a long time to get all the way across it. laugh


hi2 Have fun, I have for so many years with these two lots

biggrin Let me add

If you have any questions about this, you can add the question here, I shall keep track and answer any, or one of the other mods will yes

hi2 Have a load of fun with these lots. They are large and well deserved to be played. I have made three homes on the big lot, then let the kids grow up to be the new neighbors. laugh

biggrin

Okay I have a friend that shows you a House One empty lot that became a huge House00

All I did was put her on the lot, saved that home and left her there.

I then mimized and went to UserData3/Houses. Made me a new subfolder inside Houses, dated it; grabbed House01 and House02

Then I copied House00, 11

Many many times. wink

Okay I renamed 00 to House01
Went back to the town view.

You see where she is now whistle

smile

Now Henry Crossfire came to help me on House02

I gave him House11

This is an almost working lot. Missing a working car portal. So set that up and then put that portal exactly in the street where you want.

As you do with any of these items. The phone line can be put anywhere. I put it on the very tip of the lot. Then hide it.

I get several trash cans for these lots. One mail box though.
One car portal too smile

Use the move cheat to pick them up and get them to their ride soon enough. These lots are big rolleyes


hug Have fun and be sure and shut your move cheat off if you are not careful, things get lost nono

hi2 Enjoy

laugh I am done

I have shown you what the 00 lot will do overall to the game lots

You can play them and enjoy them.

Hate them and get them out.

You go to your saved Houses in the Houses folder.
You just either delete your House you made into a big lot..
You can rename it something the game will not see.

I have made lots I name what they are
Lake Lot
Girls College Lot
Gym
Track and Field

These are the exact lots with all objects. I just have to make a copy and rename it what I want it to be in the game. Then go there and see it thumbsup

Has there ever been any word from Maxis as to why these lots exist but are not used? For testing purposes?

I did read somewhere [ maybe here smile ] that you can use the map edit cheat to "fix" the neighborhood view by making the tiles you don't want to appear on the neighborhod screen un-editable. If the lot you are building is not yet finished you can use the move objects cheat to finishing building. Of course you will want to make the portals un-editable so if you bulldoze they will remain. That last bit of advise saved me a lot of headaches the last installation.

These lots are a lot of fun!

No Crumbs, they do not tell us.

I took a Townie on a trip to their 'home'

I had ealier made my lot00 have a tile on it.

Well I grabbed the Townie (Inge's hack) and took her 'home'

They get in the taxi and are let off at House00

Now I do not see the Townie anymore, yet that is what it is, as it was the lot that had the 00

So if the Townies and all live on 00, no wonder they are so crabby. There is not a thing for them on that lot.

Now the reason you cannot see all the building you make on these lots, it is in the no show area.

Since I have used them for years and use the move cheat.. I can build all the way to the edges, minus one square. I like that some of it is missing. It can make the other lots I am working on work.. For the view..


Now I do not care for the view, I play the game at the lot level. I do not use the map edit. I've always used the move cheat.

Anyway, these lots are so much fun and so big laugh

Is there anyway to be on a current lot that already has a family and house on it, and make it the size of Lot 00 or Lot 11; without having to bulldoze and rebuild the current house?


Thanks,


Adam

Adam,
If you and your mate are on Lot1 with a house.
You then drop Lot00 on top of you two.
You will lose your home.
The answer is No no

The only way to do this:
Make Lot1 or Lot2 be your new Lot00 huge lot.. rolleyes
Rename it House02 and drop it in Houses folder. Overwrite House02

Be sure you have a sim there, you have to use the prepare lot to get what is missing. Bunker Sims table the best choice.. wink

Okay make a home. On the huge monster lot is your new home.
Copy it. And save it outside the Houses Folder. Name it something you like. You can rename it any lot and use that home anywhere for anyone family.


Yet you can't do the other way. The House file holds whatever is on the lot. So if your home has a lot, and you drop a new 'home/lot' on top of the family.. The home is rewritten to be the dropped home/lot.

So start up making new homes on Lot00 or Lot11
Save them and name them so you know what they are.
jfade's psycho Then drop them on people's heads tongue


floorlaugh I do that all the time. Cost nothing but confusion as they stand on the sidewalk, waiting smile

I would like to try one of these lots because I am not satisfied with the size of the castle in my medevil hood.

One question...does adding these lots add to the downloads in my game? I am at the download limit with objects, will that make any difference?

another question, are you still limited to 8 sims living on the lot?

I recently discovered that the size of lots (as in how many kbs) does affect your downloads limits.
The bigger and more complex my neighborhood lots became, the fewer downloads I could fit into my game.

Oh boy does that ever jfade's psycho

My Miskatonic College Town is ALL Lots 00.. Unless 11 was needed.

All was taken in time to make it look oh so perfect thumbsup


Only then to begin to put some objects in the buildings and WHAM tomato

I could not play the town eventually. As I added more, played more, it got so intense it cry and tongue at me floorlaugh


I learned.. be sensible and don't over due.. Just put like 1/3 of the Lots in one town.. Then go to the next town and put the next third..
You can take photos and go onward in your head about the story or make one wink

I still have that special college town wub I have lucky a extra town with nothing in the buildings.. jump I move the empty building over and that made the town work yes

Good thing I have Homeslice's Run Away Bouquet. smile (I got many years ago, before Simslice went pay.)

As for replacing lots, I have a HousesBackup folder in every neighborhood, with backups and potential replacements of every lot. It's come in handy quite often.

Example screenshot:


Anyway, thanks for the information about lots 00 and 11 and the links, patchover! I can think of some good uses for the large lot size.
