Yes, but it would be nice to be able to put in a mod and forget about it.

I've got one or two things on MTS, but most of my stuff is on my main site here:

I'd love to see a "build structure" type mod, similar to what's in the Playstation version of Castaway where the sims actually build the walls and roofs of their shelters. Then my pioneer sims could have actual barn raisings, and my architect and contractor sims would really have something to do.

I use this, especially in big households like my halfway house and orphanage. It won't do what you want. What it does, is you set the time you want the sim to get up, and it will automatically make them go to bed at the appropriate time for the energy level of the bed you assigned them to, so that they will wake up on time. So if you have a level ten energy bed, it may send the sim to bed at two am, but a level one energy bed might be nine pm. If your sim had a date mid afternoon, they will stay up later because their energy is higher.

When the sim wakes up with the sleepclock, it will push them to use the bathroomusesyou hack if you have it mounted in your bathrooms. Each sleepclock handles two sims, and it will not work if you have more than two bed slots (two twin beds or one double) within the room the sleepclock controls. (That Pets floor divider stuff is what I use around the sleepclock and its beds so I can have big dormitory rooms.)

I wish there were more lot creators who focused on community lots. I enjoy the occasional build, but I much prefer to play or create other things. There are so many community lots I wish my hood had, but don't have the motivation or inspiration to build. It'd be nice if I could find more of them as uploads so that I didn't have to build them myself

@gummilutt
N99 Forums has a lot of community lots. http://starlightsims.yuku.com/ also N99 forum paks http://n99forumpaks.jfade.com/index.php

In the "POBS 2 - N99 File Sharing Forum!" is where a lot of them are but you can ask for community lots in the "Sims 2 Where Did I Find, Where Can I Get?" and they will either give you a link or email them to you.

Peni Griffin is doing another hood that has a bunch of community lots in it and could use you to test them out in your hoods to see how they work. http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=553757

Thanks for the tips Marka. I already have Mootildas lots, I use them all the time. The first part has me confused. What is the first link to? You say N99 both before and after it, but it appears to have nothing to do with N99. And it leaves me on a "you must log in to see this"-page.

It feels a little weird to download a hood in creation progress and strip it's lots, but if it would help to have them play-tested then sure, I can check if there's something there my hood could use

@gummilutt , there have been a few threads over the last few months where people kicked around ideas for lots in different types of neighborhoods, and it seemed like lot creators (like me) got lots of good ideas from that... not exactly requests, but kind of a similar vein. It might be worth making such a thread for whatever type of neighborhood you're looking at- you may get some inspiration for your own builds, or some other creators may find inspiration and make them themselves!

As for me, I would love to see mannequins for each gender and age group that you could assign outfits to- I know there's a few from the IKEA SP, and people have made mannequins with specific outfits, but having one that could be changed to any age-and-gender-appropriate outfit would be so useful for clothiers and department stores!

@gummilutt the first link its the forums it self which is called Neighborhood 99 Sims Forum and you must reg. to see the forums.

The 2nd link it open to every one.

Old Town has community lots based on Sims 1.
Riverside hood has 6 community lots with 4 of them parks.
The 4 hoods done by the Hood Building Group has some also.

Here is the link to all the known hoods but it has not been kept up since Mootilda passing. http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title...t:Neighborhoods

A hack for CAS so when you click the pacifier the hair is a cut that shows features. So it's easy to see ears and forehead.

Hm... You gave me an idea for when I'm more in the mood to build. Perhaps I could have a "community lot project." I have tons of community lot ideas myself, but I have yet to see anyone else build them! If you don't mind me asking, what are your ideas? Maybe I'd be interested in doing them... sometime... in the future. When I don't hate building with every fiber in my body. (I find this hilarious, actually, because I'm going to study architecture in university. Yaaaay!)

Haha! I know what you mean though, when I have too many lots to build I get really sick of it. Currently in that phase, which is why I wish I could download more of the lots I wish my hood had :P

I didn't really have specific things in mind, but I'm sure there are lots of really great things in peoples hoods that one doesn't think to make. And if they do get made, it's often littered with CC which I don't like. I want to pick my own CC, and getting it via lots is hard to keep organized. There's a lot of potential with just maxis stuff.

But just thinking out loud, I wish there were more academy-like lots, where Sims can go learn skills. Makes sense that they aren't that common since community skilling requires a mod, but still! But not like huge lots with ALL skilling objects, more focused around a specific thing. So maybe a musical academy with instruments, and a concert hall nearby. I have crafting hobby focused lots, but haven't made much around music. And I'd like more family-directed stuff, like what you asked about in Stupid Questions. I have a massive child store, selling all kids items as OFB business, but I realized I'd like one where the kids can interact with the things. Kind of like a fun land, where you can go if you can't afford/don't have the space for toy-stuff. Other stuff would be libraries, gaming cafés, museums, restaurants intended as OFB businesses with themes (like, only intended to serve dessert, or grilled stuff, or what have you). Basically everything people mentioned in reply to your question

Seeing as I only got 4 or 5 hours of sleep last night, I had to do a double take on this bit in your reponse.

You and I have really similar ideas, actually! I'm using some shell building I found online as the base for all my university's buildings. The fine art building has music, art, life drawing (AKA some college kid gets paid $2/hour to stand on a table naked), photography, fashion & architecture design, sewing, toy design, florist studies, uhhhh... I can't recall what else. The medical building will have the career rewards (plastic surgery, the surgery dummy, etc). That sort of thing.

When I get the desire to build again, I'll try my hand at building some more community lots (particularly with minimal CC - I now understand the frustration of downloading horribly ugly CC through lots!). Probably more things will get done as I begin to play Aridia more. I still need to download more CAS CC to finish the Sims! And the university lots! And then I'm done! Aaaaaa! (exclamation points!!!!!)

Yeah, I need sleep. I'm getting to be too silly right now.

Have you looked at Brainania by Mootilda? I use that as my Uni and there are many tiny separate lots devoted to a single thing like that. If you like those you could move them to the lot bin and place them in your own hood.

I had not, no. I went to look at the pictures, and was like "What do you mean many tiny lots? There's just a few lots!". Then I downloaded it, and now I'm mindblown. Man, that is impressive! Thank you for the tip jo, these will be great

I should have said joined or row lots, those are my favourite kind of tiny lot due to the effect they give.

Wait- do even University community lots not allow skilling? I thought it was still possible there... and that's the most fitting place for that kind of skill-building-dedicated lot, if you ask me! If you can't do that there, I may have to track down that mod and add it to my very small collection of downloaded creations!

University lots allow skillbuilding. The only thing you really need a home lot for there is sleep.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.
