~*~*~*~Simtopia Community Set #2: Fire and Police Stations~*~*~*~


ABOUT THIS SET:
This is set 2 of 30 Simtopia Community Lots.

This set includes 4 Simtopia lots: 2 Simtopia Police Stations (1 medium lot and 1 small lot) and 2 Simtopia Fire Stations (1 medium lot and 1 small lot). There are 2 NO Custom Content Police Stations. The 2 decorated Police Stations are identical to the No CC versions with the exception of User Created police vehicles. All lots are mainly decorated using Maxis objects.

These are RESIDENTIAL LOTS for the best playability when trying to run a police and fire station.

LOT STATISTICS:

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


SIMTOPIA POLICE DEPARTMENT #1 includes a Reception Room, a Morgue, an Identification Room, an Evidence Room, a Processing Room, a Visitation Room, a Gym, a Police Lounge with Showers, Public Toilets, a Jailhouse with 6 cells,a Forensics Lab, a Police Chief Office, an Interrogation Room and a Detective's Office. There are 2 to choose from: the "decorated" (DECOR) version has police vehicles / the "No Custom Content (NoCC) version is decorated using Maxis objects only (basically no police vehicles).

Decorated Police Department #1
Lot Size: 4 x 3
Lot Price: 449,329 Simoleons

Note:
I have created a Simtopia Police Academy that will be uploaded when I get to the "University" lots phase of the project. Oh yeah... If anyone is interested in making that "ax throwing" Maxis object into a shooting range, I'm first in line for the creation. Otherwise, in Simtopia the officers will uphold the law with axes instead!

Custom Content Included:
- Fire Alarm by feeEssen
- Fire Truck by Fresh-Prince
- Invisible Tile by Frillen
- Hose by feeEssen
- A Firetruck by Petreak
- Fire Extinguisher by feeEssen
- Fireman's Pole by Sophie-David
- "Ascension V2" - (1 Tile Stair Transporter) by Targa
- 2003 Ford Crown Victoria Police Car by Fresh-Prince
- Police Line-up Wall 1 by Fanseelamb
- Police Line-up Wall 2 by Fanseelamb
- Police Motorcycle by Mickyss
- Police Car by Petreak
- A Sports Car by Petreak
- Town Car by Petreak
- 1983 Chevrolet Impala Police Car by Fresh-Prince

F.Y.I.:
*Both the decorated Police Stations and Fire Stations include decorative vehicles (by Mickyss and/or Petreak and driveable vehicles by Fresh-Prince.

*The fireman's pole by Sophie-David is not animated (at least not yet)...BUT I combined it with Targa's invisible 1 tile Ascension Stairs (which works much like an elevator) and with Frillen's invisible floor tile (which puts the hole in the floor). So, while the pole is not animated, it is indeed functional enough that your sims can use it to teleport downstairs (or upstairs).

*Be sure to click on all images below for more details!

Additional Credits:
Thank you my Beloved David for creating the Fireman's Pole this set. I value all that you do for me!

Special Note:
The "ALL" download contains the 4 lots you will need to complete your set in one form or another. Due to size, I included the 2 decorated versions of the Fire Station, the larger 4 x 3 decorated version of the Police station and the NO Custom Content version of the smaller 3 x 2 Police Station.

very elaborated, great work! I can't find the original thread of the fireman's pole, does it work like a real one?

Just when I've picked up my jaw, you go and make it drop again! This is just... wow! Now my Simtopia 'hood will be filled with firemen (firesims?) and police officers.

The upcoming Police Academy sounds great - I'm really looking forward to that! And hey, nothing says "you have the right to remain silent" like a well-aimed axe throw...

Thanks for the compliment. Sophie-David (David) hasn't uploaded the fireman's pole YET. At present, it is not animated. David is tinkering with it though as he wants it to be more functional than decorative. But in the least, he will eventually upload it either as a decorative item/column or as a functional pole if all works out.

As for the pole's use in the Simtopia Fire Stations, I combined David's Fireman's pole with Targa's invisible 1 tile Ascension Stairs (which works much like an elevator) and with Frillen's invisible floor tile (which puts the hole in the floor). So, while the pole is not animated, it works enough that your sims can use it to teleport downstairs.

Of course, they can also teleport "UP" the pole as well. Imagine that animated! A fireman sliding up a pole.

Pick up your jaw! Thanks for the praise!

I remember when the thought of creating an entire Simtopia community made me cringe because of the scope of my desires. I have a bit of time to kill right now, so Simtopia is born. The Police Academy is really nice. It's all "formal" looking. It has classrooms and lounges and a training yard in the back (using the obstacle course). For now, the "firing range" is an "ax-throwing range" as it is a functional commercial lot. I guess this is perfect for Simtopia...what better way to deter criminal behavior than training your officers to throw axes at the bad guys? It takes being stabbed in the back to a new level.

I like to control the flow of my Sim neighborhood at times, so my police and fire stations are residentials. With Fresh-Prince's driveable police car and fire truck, I thought these lots would be great for Sim story telling or for writers who use the Sims to spark their writing. So, I'm glad you find these lots useful! Enjoy!

Wow! Just wow! I bet these would be fantastic when combined with Inge's institution living mods and used as residential lots. (duh, it is residential, I can't read) Would need BastDawn's(?) NPC career mod too, so they could work as firefighters. The lots look absolutely beatiful, very detailed and realistically laid out. Can't wait for the upcoming sets.

Thank you! These are perfect! And I love the palm trees as my simmies live in a tropical climate (I'm from the islands muhself).

After playing the same Maxi hood for five years, I've finally decided to play a new hood, built from scratch, so your project is perfectly timed. Looking forward to all of your lots, if these are an indication of what's in store for us.

And thank you for your loyality to we TS2-faithfuls!

CatofEvilGenius,
Thanks.

BTW...I get a kick out of your name. Of course you say that you are not really "evil". Does that mean you are truly a genuis by default?

I've never even seen Inge's institution mods before! Just got a look at Simological. Neat things there! And no I haven't been under a rock, just in my own world I guess.

I'm not sure about BastDawn, but I did find TashaFaun's mods. The things you miss when you can't see the forrest for trees! Well...perhaps now that I have a bit of time to smell the roses, I can attend to all the small things I tend to overlook.

Thanks again.

ilikefishfood:
Timing is indeed everything. I'm glad it's working out for you. Oh...Be sure to download the "Simtopia" neighborhood maps and Community Set #1 if you haven't. You are most welcomed about my "loyalty", but there is a bit of selfish endeavor involved too because "I" also need a complete hood to play in as well! Take care!

#9 Old 28th Oct 2009 at 9:28 AM
Yes, it's TashaFaun, not BastDawn, my bad.

I'm neither evil nor a genius. You know how in 70's spy movies the villain has a cat? And MAD cat from Inspector Gadget? That's me.

I may just have to make a whole new hood rather than plop your lots into existing ones. Would give me a chance to use those clean 'hood templates at MATY, maybe make my own townies and such. Now you've given me ideas for huge projects, darn it! Too many projects, too little time.

Tsk...Tsk...Tsk...

You are "supposed to" use the Simtopia neighborhoods I created.

On the serious side... I think it's more practical to use the Simtopia hoods because I design the lots in them so they will fit properly and often have streets on 3 to four sides of the lot, which looks better when playing the game with neighborhood visibility on.

But, you can do what you will.

What is this about more projects for you? Ha ha ha!

It's all part of my diabolical plan to keep Simming alive!

Take care.

These lots look wonderful! Sadly I can't use it...do I actually need all the expansions/stuff packs that you have for your game to use it? When I tried to install it the game tells me I can't =(

I'd say it's best to have all the EPs and Stuff Packs. Luckily the game let's you know!

Sorry.

I know that there are many people who don't have everything, but for this particular project, I am purposefully designing it so I can finally enjoy all of my games (which basically were sitting collecting dust).

There will be a Base Game collection later, but not for quite some time. Not until I complete this Simtopia Project and my Gwrych Project.

Maybe with the Sims 2 stuff being sold in sets now, you can collect them over time! It took me a few years to get all of my packs, but eventually it happened!

Simtopia was just born.

I've only created 5 neighborhood maps for it - found here:
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=373905

I created a City Hall and 3 multipurpose (but all different) City Squares for it - found here:
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=373927

And of course these police and fire stations!

Originally, I wanted to create and upload a complete neighborhood, but this neighborhood promises to be so massive that doing so would require Simmers to wait months (or a little more than a year even) before I complete the hood in its entirety. So, I decided to release it as I go along. The neighborhood maps, the community lots, then the residential lots and last the specialty lots.

The community lots will have 30 to 35 sets. I am only on set 3, but it's an ongoing process. Each set takes anywhere from a few days (when I'm not busy or ill) to a week (or a little more than a week) to complete and then a few days to upload.

Right now, I'm adding the final touches to the Airport lots (4 separate lots to form one sizeable airport) - which are "really" nice. They are turning out better than anticipated. So that is what you have to look forward to.

Well DD. Until someone can turn the ax throwing object into a shooting range (perhaps with paint ball guns if "real" type guns aren't allowed), the policemen (and women) of Simtopia will continue to practice their ax-throwing skills!

Lieutenant,

Not idiotic at all. To be safe I'll just talk like the universal idealistic MOM..."Sweetie, I think it's best to have all EP and STUFF Packs."

I used quite a few Maxis rewards, etc and while the Custom Content List isn't long, some of it may require specific EPs to work properly. Some people try with luck when they actually have all of the EPs...Of course I treat Mansions and Gardens like an EP as well. It may work. I don't think it will "harm" your computer...but I'd back-up my files just in case. The most I've had happen with lots is they won't load at all.

I decided to do 3 sets...1 that used all EPs and Tons of CC (Gwyrch), one that uses all EPs/Stuff Packs and minimal CC (Simtopia) and one that uses minimal EPs, No Stuff Packs and NO CC (Eden). I'm finishing up with Gwrych now...Next year Simtopia and the year after that Eden. Unfortunately, Eden is a long way from being a reality.

If you try it...let me know how it works for you. I'm curious!

i know the EPs are important, with construction features and all that. mansions and gardens was one of the few stuff packs that looked p neat to me so i'll probably end up getting that sometime.

i'm going to repeat my earlier sentiment of WHATEVZ, MOOOM and go for it. i'll grab the first police station and see how it works out. lol i just checked and the only stuff pack i have on this computer is celebration stuff THIS WILL BE FUN
