Have your sims ever wanted to stand on the Moon? Have your sims ever wanted to jump on the Moon and experience the weak Lunar gravity?
Now, your sims can do that! The flight may last long, but it will be worth it. We promise!

Welcome to Moonbase Apollo!
-

-
P.S. Because of the way how the game handles vacation subhoods, I had to choose a vacation theme for this (either Mountain, Tropical, Far-Eastern)... and because the Moon is not a tropical place and there aren't that many mountains on the Moon, I made it a "Far-Eastern" vacation subhood.
You know... since the Moon can be east from the Earth (of course, depending on the current orbit position), why not count it as "Far-Eastern"? Since it's a "Far-Eastern", ahem... "Far-Earth" neighborhood?

Oh, and I made this vacation subhood pet & toddler friendly, so it can be used with Lamare's Pets and toddlers on Vacation mod.
Hurray, your pets and toddlers can experience the weak Lunar gravity, too! Isn't that fun?

Install Instructions
This does NOT go into the Neighborhoods folder like normal neighborhoods, it's a vacation subhood, that's why it goes into the NeighborhoodTemplate folder.
1. Unzip the file and put the one of the folders AMA1 or AMA2 into your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Bon Voyage\TSData\Res\NeighborhoodTemplate
2. Note: If you have The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, put it here instead: C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Bon Voyage\TSData\Res\NeighborhoodTemplate

If you can't see Moonbase Apollo in the subhood list, download Mootilda's Fix subhood selection mod.

Warning about Vacation Subhoods
By default, only the first Far-Eastern vacation subhood added to a neighborhood will have its sims.
All the other Far-Eastern vacation subhoods will be empty. So if you add Moonbase Apollo first and later Takemizu Village, then you won't have the Takemizu Village sims and vice versa.
They will simply be deleted - and as you know, EA doesn't delete the sims properly - the junk references can be seen in SimPE. In order to solve this issue, please try this method. It's written for custom Downtown subhoods, but it's systematically the same for vacation subhoods.

Note: If you plan to add only one populated Far-Eastern vacation subhood to your 'hood, then you won't need to use this method.
Bear in mind that this issue only occurs on vacation subhoods of the same type. So, it's completely safe to add Mountain and/or Tropical vacation subhoods after adding Moonbase Apollo as a Far-Eastern vacation subhood.

Further information
Moonbase Apollo was created in a TS2 (Base Game) + Nightlife + Pets + Seasons + Bon Voyage only game using Numenor's AnyGameStarter! Apart from these EPs, no CCs are required for this. I only used EA's content. No townies/NPCs (no sims in general) were in the neighborhood folder during development.

Btw, the sky has been made black using the cheat "boolprop useEffects false". I didn't download any sky changing mods (ie skybox) to take the required pictures for this neighborhood! So, Moonbase Apollo is completely CC free indeed!
Actually, you can also temporarily use this cheat once your sims travelled here. Just toggle it back to "true" to make the sky blue again when you leave. Oh, and remember to enter this cheat before you depart home, though. I admit that I used Photoshop to create the neighborhood preview picture; but other than that, all of the uploaded images are straight from the game!

This neighborhood was built on a custom SC4 map, which I made myself for this neighborhood. However, you don't need a camera mod for this neighborhood. You'll see all of the lots with EA's default camera.
Speaking of lots, Moonbase Apollo has 25 lots in total. 5 of which are hotels, 13 community lots and the remaining 7 are residential lots.

4Medium (§20,001 - §90,000)
11High (§90,001 - §200,000)
8Insane (+ §200,001)
For more information about the lots, have a look here! All of the lots were built within oxygen & pressure protective domes - you know there's no air on the Moon and I had to do that to keep this as realistic as possible. Oh, and this neighborhood even has its OWN custom "Pagoda in the Shadows" lot... which is also in a dome and all! If you visit that lot, you'll notice that the Wise Old Man will be at the top of the pagoda in the dome, impatiently demanding politely asking your sims to serve him tea!

All of the lots were compressed using Mootilda's LotCompressor. Some of the lots were modded using Mootilda's LotAdjuster. It's been checked through Mootilda's HoodChecker and no issues were found.
Credit also goes to Zarathustra for his awesome dome building tutorial! Btw, I'm working on another Sci-Fi themed neighborhood... which also has domes... but somewhat different looking domes, so stay tuned for that!  

If you download the inhabited version, you'll get 8 custom locals and some ghosts in the graveyard lot. If you download the empty version, the game will generate the locals as you play.
So, if you don't want to see template-faced sims wandering around town, I recommend getting the inhabited version. For more information about the sims, have a look here!
I tried to make them Far-Eastern looking, but made them also aliens to combine the neighborhood theme a little...

Oh, and I've also written a guide book for Moonbase Apollo, just like EA did in their vacation subhoods. To read the guide book, load Moonbase Apollo after attaching it to your neighborhood and click on the Storytelling button. It will give you more information about the individual lodgings in Moonbase Apollo!

Btw, I've been working on this for 4 years now? Fun fact that I started building this when I actually should have been studying for my finals and now I'm actually uploading it because my finals got cancelled? Lol.
I actually tried to finish this earlier to upload as an entry for #themespace during Theme Catch-up 2019, but I didn't have the time to... you know, take all the pictures and all for an entire neighborhood! Well... I'm sooo glad I could do that now and that this thing's finally up!

Default Community Lots in General
Moonbase Apollo has 13 community lots in total.
4 of them are shops, 3 of them are parks (one with pool!), there's 1 spa, 1 observatory and 3 nightlife venues. The last one is the secret Pagoda in the Shadows lot.

Many of the community lots are pet & toddler friendly. One of the community lots is a graveyard and contains a few ghosts!

Also, I made sure that all of the Far-Eastern themed Vacation mementos can be unlocked here in Moonbase Apollo throughout gameplay. So, you'll see Ninjas spawning in the community lots of Moonbase Apollo and your sims will be able to learn the greetings from the locals, tai-chi, massages make wishes and such. Even the Wise Old Man scenario should be working. You know, where he'd tell the far-fetched fairytale ancient dragon legend.

Default Residential Lots in General
There are 7 empty vacation homes for sale in Moonbase Apollo! Prices range from very cheap to expensive! There are 2 starters (below §20,000), 3 moderate priced (§46,000 - §87,000) and 2 expensive mansions (§103,000 - §174,000).

None of the lots were used to move in sims. So all of the residential lots are free from sim references, also in the inhabited version. I moved the locals into a temporary residential lot and deleted that lot afterwards. If you like these lots, you can also move the vacation homes to the bin and place them in your main neighborhood. They'll automatically change into normal residential lots if you do so.

I only made a few vacation homes Pet & Toddler friendly, but you can still adapt these lots and actually make them Pet & Toddler friendly once you buy these houses.
I made them slightly furnished anyway, which is more realisitic in my opinion... you can't buy your perfect dream house with all the furnitures already placed for you.

Default Moonbase Apollo Locals
There are a total of 8 locals; 2 female adults, 2 male adults, 2 male teens and 1 female teen and 1 female child. They do behave like the locals in Takemizu Village and all... so, they'd bow as they should when your sims greet them.
Not to mention that there also are 6 ghosts haunting the Lunar Zen Garden. But I decided not to showcase them here... since they are a little, you know... special!

Some of the locals are related to each other, so check out their family trees (if you move them in)!

OMG! Thank you all for the nice comments, these really made my day!
This really means a great deal to me, since I've been working on these for YEARS! It's nice to read such encouraging words!

@pjb123 There are sims, yes, but they don't live in the neighborhood. They're just local townies wandering around!
(Actually, you can't have a sim/family living in a vacation neighborhood - only if you purchase a vacation home, but even then, it's just temporary.)

Okay, thanks. I missed that in the instructions. Still cool vacation spot.

Jawusa, you did an amazing job once again! This is such a creative idea that I cannot wait to incorporate in my game.

I cannot wait to see more hoods from you! You're a truly unique neighborhood creator that I look up to. So thank you!
