Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
53 Waterfall Way (now called Waterfall Way Cove) - This lot is part 2 in a series of 2 lots (and a part of a huge series of completely revamped community lots for Sunset Vallety that I am working on).

To download more of my lots from the ‘Sunset Valley Revamped’ project see my journal: http://www.modthesims.info/journal....owjournal&j=984 You can also find out further information about the project itself here and progress.

This lot continues onto the larger waterfall neighbouring lot. This is the lot with the necessary amenities for lot #1 (toilets, bike park etc.) Some of the landscaping/planting in the distance is part of lot #1. The lot fits on a 36x47 lot and can obviously fit on other lots however it would require some landscaping to fit/look correct. Looks best when put with lot #1 of Waterfall Way Cove.



This lot is a completelye new lot that has been created to join seemlessly onto lot #1. This lot features the bistro/restaurant which is located on a raised deck, but it still works fully, you are able to eat and work at it like normal. The waters are fishable but contain no specific fish currently. This will be changed once I have revamped all of the community lots for Sunset Valley as I intend to redistrubute the fish locations once it is completed.

Features

toilets
bike park
forest area
restaurant



Part 1

Part 1 of Waterfall Way Cove is on the adjacent lot. The lots fit seemlessly together as the image of both lots should illustrate. You can barely tell that they aren't just 1 giant lot, it's only slightly noticable at nighttime due to the lighting.

For some strange reason there was an issue with the bistro and saving once it was placed. To overcome this issue I used the 'buyable' version by rmrm. It is no different to the proper community lot version and as soon as I know how to fix the issue I will revert to using the 'original' one.

If for some bizarre reason this were to come up as residential you can just click to change lot type and it should work fine. You can also ignore any warning about items being removed from the lot, they won't be.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I am wondering, why can't you just make this a community lot instead of a residential lot? I mean it functions like a community lot and even if you put sims in, they can not really live here anyway.

Good, I'm glad.

I have no idea why it insists on going residential sometimes. I tried it in many neighbourhoods of my own and sometimes it chose to come out as residential and not community, but those that came out as residential tested fine once as a community lot.

This happened to me, too. I downloaded the file and this part is in the library as residential, while the other part is under community. I just changed the zoning back to community.

Thanks, these are wonderful!

This is beautiful, but the bistro doesn't show up in mine. I thought it was because I still had the main bistro in town, so I bulldozed it and tried placing the lot again. The lot shows up as residential, but that doesn't seem to matter. I get no bistro in community or residential. What am I doing wrong?

Beautiful work, but no matter what I change the lot type to it won't let me place it...suggestions? what should I choose? I have no "bistro" or "diner" or "restaurant" choice .
