Hi all!

I was kinda miffed when EA came out with that over-sized charging station for their Renault campaign. I tried to make it fit in with the town I was using but it was like a sore thumb so I thought why not make a small gas station? Nobody seems to driving an electric car in town anyways

...and so here is that gas station. It's pretty simplistic in design. I was thinking about those small gas stations way out of the way or those small ones in small towns or villages. Eventually, I will make a bigger one for a late night town. Let's see first how this one fare.

You will need to have Ambitions and the Fast Lane Stuff Pack to make this work.

This is my first upload. Hope you guys like it.

Cheers!

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.

At first, I thought that stations were pretty much for looks only, but since Ambitions, I now realize it would be very handy for the car enthusiast. Nice station, I can really use it. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks all. I originally made this for Twinbrook. Goes with the Southern style look.

It's also pretty useful for detective types. What could more suspicious that having a meeting in the gas station? lol

A really great idea Why EA never put them in game themselves puzzled me, but now you have!

Now if only EA would give T3 the restorable cars like in T2, this could be a money making lot. Got me thinking now, might try to make a bigger one with attched Consignment store to represent a mini-mart type station or truck stop.

Yes. They're non-functional which I find weird because it would be great if you have to pump gas in your vehicle.

So cute. It's very similar to a gas station near my parents cottage which is indeed in the middle of nowhere

I know this cc has been out for 4 years already, but I had to have it. It looks a lot like the "in the middle of nowhere" tiny gas station around the corner from my Dad's house in rural Ohio. You know, the kind of little place that doesn't look like it should still be open and when you go in, the person who owns it is about 85 years old and so are the rickety chairs in the corner. Yet the guy is that lost breed of business owner who gives you a fair deal.
