Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Lot Size Medium (5x3)

Royal Dutch Shell PLC is a multinational oil company of Anglo Dutch origins, which is amongst the largest energy corporations in the world.

This lot is a nice medium-sized Shell gas station (8 pumps) with a car wash, a must have for your nightlife sims and their cars (Imagine living in a neighborhood with no gas station for miles!).

The station at night

LCD TVs your sims can watch while they fill up (one for every pump)

The store

Inside the store (notice the ATM, drinks magazines and washrooms)

The car wash

electronic vending kiosks (gotta have'em for every community lot!)

Custom Content
I made the Main Sign (A recolor of a maxis object)
Included custom contents:
23" Sony LCD WEGA TV by Fresh Prince
Gas Pumps by Suiryuue
Neon Open Sign by Atavera
Neon Alphabet by Atavera
Satellite Dish by boblishman
SimoBank ATM by netmicro
guys for making such great custom objects

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.

Just a note. IN your pictures up above, you have decorative cars on the lots. They are not included in the custom content so when you download the lot, the cars are replaced with sculptures.

Everything else works fine!

Great! My shell sign is a grilled cheese though... Its a cool station though!

Any idea where I can find the entire alphabet by atavera? I have used some of the letters for my own auto shop I've built.

Oh noes! I'd been looking for something like this for so long! But now I cannot have the gas pumps.

Anyone know where to find the gas pumps now that Suiryuue took them off that link?

EDIT: Found the gas pumps at...
