Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Title: All-in-One Community Shack
Category: Lots & Housing > Community

Cost: N/A
Lot size: 2x2

Nightlife expansion required.
No custom content.

As requested by Ellatrue on this thread (S2C: Poverty Challenge), here's a shabby little community lot for you to play with. It covers all bases in terms of funcionality, but provides no opportunities to earn money, so it should be Poverty Challenge compliant. I hope this is crappy enough to get officially approved? I removed the bar (replaced it with a counter) and redecorated it a bit, as requested; see the Poverty Challenge thread for "Before" pics.


* Food: Restaurant, in- and outdoor (extra uncomfortable chairs with no roof over your head! Extra grumpy host and deliberately slow waiters not included).
* Self service: Outdoor grill (the cheapest one)
* Shopping: Food (frosted shrinkwrapped plastic only) and a seclection of tasteless secondhand clothes and trash celebrity magazines
* Fun fun fun: Pinball machine, dart board, and a photo booth to fool around in
* Wellness: A pool! And toilets, washbasins, and a shower. And a mirror, too.
* Media: TV and boom box
* Comfort: A park bench to lounge on
* Style: No flowers, bare walls, Maxis flooring.

If you get an "expansion pack data required" error upon installation, use Clean Installer instead of the Maxis one. Apparently this is a known issue (not specific to this download), see this thread describing the problem and this post (daysies) explaining the workaround.

Have fun!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

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

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
