Hello Everyone!

UPDATE 02FEB19: Fixed issue where there were no stairs leading into the school. I thought I had previously fixed this, but I was reminded by melissalungu that it was still occurring. Thank you
NOTE: Zerbu's Mods required for this lot to work. Now compatible with Game Version and Get Famous EP

Lakeside High School - Fully Functional![/B]

Yes, you read that right. This is a functioning high school for teens!

Thanks to Zerbu's Go to School and Venue Changes mods,
your children and teens can go to school, and you can join them! Anything and everything you want to know about these mods is available
by clicking HERE, or on the link in the credits below.

It is highly recommended that you read everything on Zerbu's page before installing this lot.
If you have any questions about how the mods work, or if you encounter any problems with the mods,
please go to Zerbu's page and ask/report there. I have no affiliation with Zerbu at all. None. Zilch. Nada.

I also recommend you view this video tutorial to get a sense of what happens in the school and how it's made to
function. This video is also linked by Zerbu on his mod page, so you know it's got relevant information:
misplacedmoo's 2017 tutorial

Zerbu's mods and Get to Work are essential in order for you to follow your teens to school, and this lot won't work without them.
--The mods also come with the only custom content required for this lot.--

In this high school there are an NPC principal, guidance counselor, teacher, a caterer,
and a janitor
, and they all work! That is because I have chosen the new version of the high school.
I could have chosen the old version that also comes with the mods, but that provides far less
interactions and doesn't have functional teachers. With this new version of the schools (either Elementary
or High School) you can also teach when you've reached certain skill levels!
That's also all explained on Zerbu's page, and I have included quite a
bit of the information from that page in a spoiler below. Nothing is as good as the real thing, though, as information
changes over time, so please use Zerbu's page as your information guide to the mods

Your teen's experience at this high school will be very much like a detective, scientist, or doctor, in that they will have
a task progress bar with assignments, and appropriate whims.
You will fully direct your teen to complete the assignments, just like you would if you went
to work with your adult Sim in a Get to Work career!
One of the assignments is to Observe the Skies using a telescope, which I discovered while
playing on the lot, so I had to make sure the lot had a telescope, which is on the back deck.

One other thing I found especially interesting: students from EVERY WORLD will come to this
high school, so you only have to have one in your entire game. This also applies to any elementary
school for children, should you decide to install one.

This lot also uses items from the following EP/SP/GP's, but are not required to make the lot work, and
will be replaced by Base Game items or empty spots if you don't have them:
  • Seasons
  • City Living
  • Get Together
  • Parenthood
  • Dine Out
  • Spa Day
  • Laundry Day Stuff
  • Fitness Stuff
  • Kids Room Stuff
  • Movie Hangout Stuff
  • Cool Kitchen Stuff

This lot has the following traits if you have City Living installed:
Good Schools
Home Studio
Teen Neighbourhood

I built it in Newcrest on a 40x30 lot right on the lake, hence the name. You, of course, can place it on any 40x30 lot or larger
in any world you wish. And please feel free to change whatever you like, to make it suit your personal taste!

I based the architecture of this high school on Franklin High School found in Portland, Oregon, USA. It's not an exact replica,
but it did provide me with a lot of inspiration.

Lot Size: 40x30
Lot Price (furnished): §250,844

This download has custom installation instructions!

In addition to the normal installation instructions, this download also has a custom instruction, as follows:

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use 7zip (recommended), WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (OS X) to extract the file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s). OS X also has a built-in utility for that (just rightclick).

3. You MUST install Zerbu's mods in order, before installing this lot. It may not work otherwise, and I don't recommend deviating from these instructions.

1. Install the Go to School mod to your mods folder.
-To do this, click on the mod link on Zerbu's page (as previously linked), open the .zip file. Select all the files and select "cut." Apparently, this is important! Go to your mods folder, and "paste" the cut files there.
2. Install the Venue Changes mod to your mods folder, using the same download/cut/paste method.

Then, place the files from my lot .zip archive into your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Tray folder.

Start your game, and have lots of fun!
