Updates

Brand new and improved version of the object. Please remove ANY of the older versions
To users of NRaas Woohooer: You'll need both the latest testing versions of Woohooer and the Woohooer Eiffel Tower module to have the Woohooer mod's control and features when sims woohoo in this new version of the tower, the previous versions only work with the previous versions of the tower.
Also all translations (except for Japanese/Swedish/Chinese/Russian) need updating.

5-JAN-2016: Russian translation updated by optimuspraim14

4-DEC-2015:
  • Fix for sims getting stuck in the elevator when carrying toddlers/babies.
  • Toddler and babies now ride the elevator for free.
  • Non default replacement version of the tower uploaded.
  • Tower can be placed on using Edit Town's World Editor Do so at your own risk though, since whether or not the tower functions properly if placed outside of an actual lot has yet to be fully tested!

27-JUN-2015: Chinese translations (zh-CN and zh-TW) updated by egureh

20-JUN-2015: (Description page has been fully updated with all the new changes)
  • New and improved tower which basically combines all 3 old versions into one. Sims can now visit and eat at any one of the 3 levels of the tower, and thanks to the awesome AussomeDays sims can enter the tower through entrances at the feet of the tower (that may or may not be totally invisible, but sure beats them warping up into it from the center of the lot!) Do check out AussomeDays's CaSTable version of the tower AND the Arc de Triomphe, since the only thing better to put in your town than a plan old French monument has to be a plain old French monument decked out in all the polka dots and zebra stripes you could ever want!
  • Swedish translation updated by letrax, thanks!



Object Description

World Adventures provided us with the Eiffel Tower as a buyable debug object, but those of you who've tried placing it would have noticed that it is purely decorative. It was originally intended for the tower to function as a Restaurant rabbithole and EA DID include all the code for it, but chose not to implement any of it sadly. Taking and tweaking the existing code, I bring to you the New and Improved Eiffel Tower with functional interactions!

This is a default replacement of the Eiffel Tower from World Adventures, with all its original interactions enabled (and some more added) ready to be used by your sims! (It was originally a clone of the original object, but the file size of the resulting mod was way too big). It can be found in the following Buy and Build mode sections:

Buy Mode: buydebug > Misc
Build Mode (Community lots only): Community Objects/Buildings and Others


Features

From left: Low, Middle and Top Observation decks (NOTE: You may need a mod that increases camera zoom to be able to zoom up to the upper two level of the tower)
  • The tower has 3 levels (observation decks) which sims can visit using the elevator (costs money) or the stairs (free and builds athletic skill). Frisky sims will be pleased to find Woohoo is of course possible at all three levels as well

Sims Woohoing in the Top Level of the Eiffel Tower (NOTE: The woohoo petals don't always appear even though they are supposed to)
  • The tower acts as a Bistro rabbithole and sims can dine and get drinks at any of the 3 levels as well (elevator, meal and drink costs differ by level). All the functionality of a regular Bistro rabbithole is also available to sims, such as taking Cooking and Mixology classes and working in the Culinary career and looking for diving work (with Island Paradise). Sims that eat or get a drink in the tower on a date get an extra relationship boost thanks to the good view.
  • If you have Generations installed, school field trips can held in the tower as well. There are 2 possible potential souvenirs from the trip that differ from the one from the bistro.
  • There is no obvious entrance to the tower, so sims will 'enter' the rabbithole from a spot in the middle of the ground where the object stands
    Thanks to AussomeDays the tower has 4 new "entrances" at each of its feet for sims to enter the tower. She has provided a tutorial at the download page for her CaSTable version of the tower on how to build "proper"-like entrances to the tower using walls and doors if watching sims phase through the foundation walls of the tower's feet really bothers you.
  • Sims will receive the 'Wondrous View' moodlet (which is an existing in-game moodlet) after spending a certain amount of time visiting, eating or drinking at the Eiffel Tower (but not when working or taking classes).
    The original moodlet is now replaced with a custom version that has different strengths, durations and matching icon colors and description depending on how good of a view the sim is getting (i.e. at which level they are at).


Notes

The Eiffel Tower is a HUGE object (slightly larger than the size of a 64x64 lot) and may need the moveobjects on cheat to be placed. On smaller lots, try to avoid having any of the feet of the tower cover too much of any sidewalks or paths outside the lot or sims might get stuck there.


Technical Notes:



Winter night shot of the Eiffel Tower in Champs Les Sims, with the distant terrain Eiffel Tower in the background.

End Notes

New version created and tested on patch 1.67. Should work on lower patches as well even since I'm guessing this portion of the code hasn't been touched by EA at all since they chose not to use it, but cannot completely guarantee it.

Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions, problems, want to offer a translation. If you want to use the custom Eiffel Tower script to make say an Eiffel Tower rabbithole rug or door or something go ahead (would appreciate a shout out)!

Additional Credits:

HUGE THANKS to AussomeDays: Not only for the original idea to combine the 3 levels into one object, for providing the necessary entrance slots to the tower and the moodlet icons AND let's not forget her fantastic recolorable versions of the Eiffel Tower and all the other EA rabbitholes!

@Gaspar418: Thanks, I've updated both Portuguese translations with yours.

If a Brazilian player can confirm here if they're okay with Gaspar418's translations or would like them changed in any way that would be helpful too. And thanks for the comments and downloads guys

Amazing mod!

I give you Spanish (es) translation:
Take Elevator To Top With Group - Subir en ascensor con la pandilla
Take Elevator To Top With Pack - Subir en ascensor con la manada
Take Elevator To Top With Date - Subir en ascensor con la cita
Take Stairs To Top With Group - Subir por las escaleras con la pandilla
Take Stairs To Top With Pack - Subir por las escaleras con la manada
Take Stairs To Top With Date - Subir por las escaleras con la cita

I guess you can use them as mexican translation too. Maybe "group", "pack" or "date" words were translated different by EA but they will understand the idea.

Thanks!

Are you sure this mod is the problem? Does this problem happen with only this mod installed?

I have awesome mod and Nraas mods. I installed the tower over the lot, like in your pictures. First my sims could never find the entrance and when clicking on the tower the woohoo interaction never showed up, the eating option did. Then my sims wouldn't enter the rabbit hole, they kept getting a routing error mood let. I re-downloaded the Nraas Eiffel tower mod and repositioned the tower, which make the interactions show up properly, then when actually using the menu, my game started crashing to desktop. I am patched to 1.67 and have all expansions, except Into the future. I gave up and removed the Nraas Eiffel tower and your mod and the game isn't crashing anymore. I have most all of Nraas mods, except Story Progression, Error Trap, and Vector. I have other mods from Sims asylum, blue's and twoftmama's. Not sure if the coding is conflicting with any of those.

I'm sorry you've had trouble with my mod. I do admit the routing with the tower can be quite tricky and t's best placed on an empty flat lot. Did the "Take Elevator To Top" and "Take Stairs To Top" interactions show up when you first tried it? Sims can only Woohoo in the tower while visiting it using one of these tnteractions.(Edit: And just in case, you DID have a latest version of NRaas Woohooer together with the NRaas Woohooer Eiffel Tower module right? Because the Nraas Woohooer Eiffel Tower mod requires Woohooer and may cause crashing without it)

I realize mods are tricky. I got the take elevator-take steps, but then it would glitch and the sims would either get the routing error moodlet about their heads or they would enter and then the game would glitch with them getting stuck or it would crash. I tried to add another large lot to the game and my game didn't like that and it started doing multiple sims stuck and routing errors, plus the popup window with the sims 3 has stopped working message. The crash log was giving a custom content error has the problem. I had updated to all of the newest Nraas mods and was already having some glitches. I think the Eiffel tower woohooer, once added to the game pushed it to start the crashing. Once Eiffel woohooer was removed game stopped crashing and sims could enter the tower if positioned just right, just no beautiful view moodlet. I updated my WA worlds with the resources available from EllaCharmed and I'll try the mod again and see if maybe the routing in the world was the problem. The problems may also have be due to more than just your mod or woohooer. The custom world I was playing at the time, I have since found out had some major problems after 2 weeks of game playing. I'll try it with a regular EA world and see if the problems are gone.
