Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I made this lot for use with the Poverty Challenge. It is base game compatible, so anyone can use it. Meant to be something of a run-down urban quickie mart. The floor is mismatched from numerous repairs, and the installations don't match either. Small apartment above the shop meant to be the owner's home--you can tell that business isn't good. Lot size 2x3. No custom content.

  • 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.

The mailbox and the garbage can are missing from this lot. And apparently the portals are also missing because the carpool doesn't come to drop off my sim family after moving them in. Too bad......I really liked this lot.

It's a community lot. It's not supposed to have a mailbox and a garbage can. What on Earth are you trying to do with it? The carpool won't come to drop off your sim family because you can't move them in to a community lot. And even if this *were* a residential lot, the family wouldn't arrive with the carpool. They'd just be there already when you load the lot. So there's nothing wrong with the portals.

To use this lot, move your family into another, residential lot, then have them call the taxi in order to visit.

I think they were confused by the upstairs apartment bit.

I was just wondering, how do you get any residential items on a community lot anyway? (i.e. beds, etc.)

you have to use a special collection - I know there are some here on MTS2

you add the collections file to your collections folder under "My Documents/EA/The Sims 2/Collections" (or wherever you've put it), and in game you will be able to select the residential objects when you click on the collection sort and move to that folder

I started looking at challenges today when I came across the "Poverty Challenge". It's ironic that I just got around to getting Glamour Life Stuff. . . My poor poverty family won't be able to buy any of the luxury items from this stuff pack
