----- END Update -------
Lot Description: This lot is designed for the "MS Plumbob Dream" by potato-ballad-sims. (Download Link) Since the world only offers 5 lots, each lot must be catered specifically for the world to function well. Each world requires 1 residential lot, but I hate to waste 1 of 5 lot just for a resident. Therefore, after some research, I discovered the technique to combine a residential and community functions into one lot.
This lot is designated as a residential lot, but it operates as a dual resident and community lot. It is essentially a Late Night NPC apartment type lot combined with community functions. NPCs will visit this lot like a community lot and utilize the services included. Player can also visit this lot as a community lot. Included in this lot are:
- 1 residential quarter designed as a luxury party pad for the captain of this ship.
- many NPC doors for the NPCs on this cruise ship
- 1 diner rabbithole + diner register with NPC worker
- 1 market rabbithole + general store register with NPC worker
- 1 Infirmary rabbithole (hospital)
- 1 brig rabbithole (police)
The design of this lot is as follows:
- Ground floor: Shopping and dining district
- 2nd floor: Economic rooms
- 3rd floor: Luxury rooms
- 4th floor: Public Deck
- 5th floor: Private Deck + Infirmary/Brig
Functional Description: As the cruise ship world is meant as a vacation world, this lot is not meant for players to use as living quarters. So, either create a household to be placed in this lot or let the game create one. When you play this world, they will be the only resident and they can invite you over for parties or you can visit them. Though you don't really need an overstuffed household, but if you want to you can redesign the NPC doors to actual crew quarters and jam 30+ sims into this household if you like.
However, the community functions of this lot will work regardless if you live on the lot. You may visit this lot like any other community lot, use the rabbitholes and even the diner/store, basically any public area to your liking. NPC visitors to this lot will include NPCs but not tourists.
It is recommended for "mid-deck 3" but you can place it on any of the three 50x60 lots. In fact, you can download this lot for any other world you want to play in. Basically it is an apartment building. All the stairs and the elevators function properly.
I listed all the EPs that I have, but the 3 main ones are ITF, IP, and LN. I use a lot of modern furniture from those EPs. There are also some store items and other CCs (none included in the download of course). With the exceptions of the rabbithole doors, the other custom contents are not "essential." If you do not have the required EP or CC, they'll simply be replaced with similar equivalents.
Do as you please. Enjoy!
CC List: Again, CCs are not necessary. Missing ones will simply be replaced with equivalents. However, these are listed base on how essential I suppose they are to the look of this lot in the screenshots based on function and frequency.
All store items require purchase except 2, which are free store items. The link will say "buy" instead of "download" for these purchase items. But again, none of them are actually essential. All other ccs are free downloads with the exception of 1 donor item (the ATS3 coffee maching), which is also completely unnecessary.
These are required "rabbithole doors" by Jynx. (Download at MTS - Petfixed version. Or MTS - nonPet version. You only need the basegame version.)
If you do not have these doors and prefer the rugs, you have to manually replace them. The rabbitholes are considered "required" b/c they draw NPCs to the lot. If you do not want that function, then they're not required.
