Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Two teleporter items with additional functions.
This version also allows you to turn Sims into downtownies.

Select a Sim by family and then first name (all townies are in one family, as are all downtownies, and all service NPCs): the Sim will appear near the object and act as a visitor.

You can also click on the shrub to move in any visitor, or make any playable Sim a townie or downtownie.

Warning: do not summon any of the following:
-Social Worker
-Social Bunny
These Sims are not intended to be interacted with, and doing so may cause game corruption.

The painting appears under decorative - paintings, and is also available for sale on community lots. The shrub appears under shrubs.

Objects originally by Inge at, modified by Torkle and then by me. Reposted with permission: "All contents are free to clone or to dissemble to use in other people's work, provided they are not wholly or partly the work of another author."

Re-licensed under the same conditions, although if you further modify these based on my work I appreciate a credit.

TPP = Teleporter Painting Plus
TSP = Teleporter Shrub Plus
Both can be used without problems.

Pets compatibility
After some extensive testing I am certain these teleporters are compatible with Pets: they do not cause any errors. However, you cannot teleport Pets with them.
The slowdown reported by some people is probably a result of the increased number of characters: installing Pets adds about 90 character files to any neighbourhood, and the teleporter has to scan them all to find Sims to teleport.

Teleporting of dogs and cats, and moving them in, making them strays, or putting them up for adoption is planned for a future version.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Hey thanks Jordi! Does anyone know if this works with AL?

Thanks a lot! MTS isn't currently letting me download anything (ugh!! ¬¬), but as soon as it does, I'll download this. I don't like hacks, and an object that lets you teleport sims from other lots or townies sounds like a hack to me, so I won't use it that way, but it'll be really useful for turning sims I create into townies. I'm going to make an Indian legacy, and I want the main family line to remain 100% Indian until it's over, but the rules don't allow marriages between legacy heirs and playable sims, so I didn't know what to do, as there are no Indian townies (well, some look South Asian, but their names aren't, and I'm a perfectionist :P). Now I'll be able to make a perfectly desi legacy! It's really cool to finally be able to make townies with custom personalities, looks, names, etc. I really love this!

Is it possible to turn a Sim into a service Sim using this? Like say, turning someone into a maid?

Ok, I might sound stupid for asking this. Lol. This is my first mod download for sims 2 and I have absolutely no idea how to activate the shrub. Help please? Lol.

Basket - you can find it in the build section, as a regular shrub.

Now I have a question - I'm having a hard time finding specific sims to spawn on my lot.
I've also noticed that there are some random family names in the pie menu.
So can someone explain how to work with this mod?

The Universal NPCs shouldn't be summoned with this mod, and neither should the carpool drivers. Just letting you know.

These are excellent mods!

Can you use it for a community lot? I really want to host a carnival at a community lot with every playable sim.

I as wondering, I don't see Ratna Jayapalan. The matchmaker set him and my sim up and now he's missing. ;_; What family is he in? He's one of the newspaper delivery people for Belladonna Cove. I might just not be seeing him? It's a wonderful mod though! Great job!
