Jynx's Rabbit Holes Rugs for Residential Lots

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

I am tired of EA's incredible greed and outrageous prices for junk! I have moved to Second Life and am no longer supporting mods here. Feel free to do anything you want with my mods. There are very, very simple tuning mods and easily altered. If you enjoy playing Sims 3 I hope you continue to do so.

Let me start by saying these are not MY Rabbit Holes!
Jynx does not claim them as his and I do not claim them as mine.
Jynx created them based on the idea of Melissa Mel's Rabbit Holes.
The ONLY thing I have done is make them available on Residential Lots.
I cloned them and changed their OBJD files.

You can find Jynx's Custom Rabbit Hole Collection here:
http://www.customsims3.com/smf/index.php?topic=1931.0

You can get Melissa's Rabbit Hole Signs here:
http://nene.modthesims.info/download.php?t=376414




The rar file contains 15 Rabbit Holes in the form of rugs that show up in Buy Mode - Deco - Rugs

1. Book Store
2. Business Journalism
3. City Hall
4. Criminal Hideout
5. Day Spa
6. Diner
7. Grocery Store
8. Hospital
9. Mausoleum
10. Military Base
11. Movie Theater
12. Police Station
13. School House
14. Science Center
15. Sports Stadium

The ones most useful for Residential Lots are the Book Store, Grocery Store and School House.
Especially if you have a Loner Sim who hates leaving home.

**Space Requirements**

The minimum space you can have around the Rabbit Holes is 3 wide by 4 deep.
Any thing less than that and your Sims will stamp their feet and yell at you!



**Compatibility**
The bad news is they conflict with Jynx's Community Rabbit Hole Collection.

The good news is they can still be placed on Community Lots from Buy Mode so you don't need Jynx's.
The are compatible with Melissa Mels Community and Residential Rabbit Hole Signs.

They are compatible with all EP's and SP's.
Tested with:
Ambitions 4.2.32
World Adventures 2.7.7
Base Game 1.14.11

Polygon Counts:
unknown - not required at Custom Sims 3

Additional Credits:
Thanks to Jynx for making the Rugs, Melissa Mel for having the idea, and the creators of S3OC and S3PE for making it all possible.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 3
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
Jynx's Rabbit Holes for Residential Lots.rar 369.1 KB 20,271 19th Jul 2010
Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. 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.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


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 was modding at www.customsims3.com as Jynx.
I just wanted to let you know that you can remove the link to the original rugs,
CS3's forum has been corrupted for several months and the rugs are longer posted there.

I would like to request one as well too, if thats not too much trouble.

If not, if anyone can point me in the right direction to make one, I could attempt to figure it out myself.

I was just wondering how these actually work....
Do we just create the outside of the building and place the doors & rug inside or what ?
if someone can reply or PM me that would be great.
I'm over the old EA rabbit holes and want something abit more downscaled for my town.
They are great for the "city" style but not for the country town design.

For some reason it wont let me change the notification section.

Thank you so much for this! It's perfect!

Question: I'm using your rugs on the custom community lots I'm building for my custom city (lol), so is it ok if I upload my city with them on TS3 Exchange? Please let me know because I don't wanna violate your rights as a creator, but I wanna share my city with other players. :]

Thanks again!

Hello. The answer is yes. You can build fake places with only the exterior and place the rugs inside, this way you're gonna have custom rabbit holes.

Or.. you can build it completely, with furniture and everything, so you can have both: a custom rabbit hole and a community lot with stuff for your sims to do.

The point is: on EA's rabbit holes you click on the walls for the options, with these rugs you click on them :]

Hope it helps.

Is there a way to rename the rabbit holes? I just started a town using armiel's builder island because i <3 small island towns and these rugs are fab for building my own little places, but i don't really want to collect trophys from "custom town hall" or have kids graduate from "Custom school house"
i guess i could always name my island "custom" but i kind of like the name it's got now.

I was wondering if, when zoomed out in map view, do you see the icons for the rabbit holes (in order to click from the map view)? Or, do you have to actually go on the lot to see the rug and click on it?

Great work!

For those who don't see the rugs ingame.. They are NOT under "categorized by room"->"Living room"->"Rugs" but under "categorized by function"->"decorative"->"Rugs"
