Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Requires NL, OfB, Pets and Seasons.
No custom content.
This is my contribution to the EAxis House of Fail challenge at MATY this month, the goal of which is to take one of the horrible lots that come with the game (this month it was "Sim Lane 130", which you may or may not know) and do something nice with it. External walls can't be moved but the rest can be gutted and rebuilt, and no CC must be used.
So, I turned this into a hotel (there is a residential version too, see my "Blue Star" upload). Not an actual one, since I don't have BV, but it works very nicely as a community lot -- I believe it wouldn't be hard to turn it into a BV hotel either. I expanded the ground floor a little and added a basement; also I possibly cheated a teensy bit by making the backside decking one tile wider (but hey, so did others).
The "Green Star" is a wellness hotel and spa, with focus on relaxation, fitness, and light entertainment -- it's not a party location, although there are a few bars and such. It is small, with only three double rooms, but has lots of features:
Playtested in my full game (Nl+OfB+SSn+Pets) with no hacks, for several long visits. It looks particularly nice at night; I really like how the lighting turned out on this lot.
I saved this with fireplaces lit, music playing, and fish in the tank (which worked for my testers) -- however, I made one more build mode change after that and I'm not sure if the fish survived that.
If you have lots of visitors and few hacks, it might be a good idea to put some additional dining tables on the front terrace (near the entrance) or have 2–3 small tables instead of the big one in the separée -- during playtesting, my host tried to seat people at the upstairs bar (which makes no sense) because there were no free tables in the restaurant and in an un-hacked game, unplayable visitors arrive rather hungry (which means they only want to eat and then leave .. so the restaurant is a little overrun).
Have lots of fun with this!
Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 203.435§
