Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
V1.4 reduces the "sims not sitting down" issue!
Are you tired of no awesome spots in town to go to? Well, you could go to a spa, but you could also go to a cinema! I bring you the Cinema mod!
This adds a new venue, called "Cinema" which acts as an active hotspot packed with 40 sims(30 sims with the reduced version) at peak times!

I've uploaded an example cinema, named MXS Cinemas, but you have to select "Include Custom Content" to see it.

Inspired by The Sim Supply's Room Build of a home theater.

There are two versions: one that has the max at 40 sims and another which is reduced to 30. Install only one!!

NOTE: If you have another sim cap increasing mod, like "More Customers" and "Longer Parties and More Guests", remove the "Increased Sim Limit" part of the mod, because those already include it.

I also strongly suggest that you disable "Uncompressed Sim Textures" even if you have a strong computer, because the game will crash if there
are too many sims with uncompressed textures on.

If you have Get To School, don't worry, this mod supports it. Just remove the Zerbu- Venue List file and put in my modified Zerbu - Venue List mod.
Reduces the sims not sitting down issue!
Compatible with Spa Day!
Fixed a bug where I accidentally included the Increased sim limit part of the mod inside the main mod.
Added a new version, Reduced sims! This lowers the maximum sims to 30.
BUGS: Musical Chairs bug will appear if you place two tv's on a cinema lot, I don't know why this is happening, it just does.
Sims fighting over the tv: If sims start constantly switching channels, simply leave the lot and come back
A small amount of people are reporting that this causes infinite loading screens when you travel to the cinema lot, I don't know why this is happening, most likely it can't be fixed.


Edits the following files.
The TV object files, which I changed so your sims can view the tv from a large distance.
The World data files, which originally came from zerbu.
S4_03B33DDF_00000000_676CCB4C0188CEC2, to increase the max sim cap.
S4_E882D22F_00000000_000000000000862B, to include my static commodity.

Game Version
Made with version 1.8.61

Zerbu for his original venue list files and the mod workshop.

I just spent 2 hours troubleshooting my "scripts" folder and found this was the mod preventing my game consoles from working in my house (after the recent toddler patch and vampires pack).

Default Needs Update
This mod is not working after the last patch. Sims will teleport behind the sofa when interacting with any TV.

This mod is broken right now. Simmy hasn't been on in a long time.
