Things got complicated a bit and instead of apartments for September's theme I'm bringing you this little community lot.

At first I had wanted to name it after three main colours (black, red, white) used here, but as this combination is quite stylish, too, the name changed. And having in mind that doing a makover is the same as changing style, 'Style It!' sounds even better Thanks to its simple and basic furnishing it can easily handle all the sims in need of changing their look.

In my game it was turned into a successful business and it's owner (and her family) - thanks to business perks mainly - became rich And my sim Gracja finally found herself a job!

There is almost no CC - literally 3 files. I hope you'll consider it as an advantage ^^
Other than that, have fun and make your sims happier with themeselves

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install.

Might just be me or my game, but when I installed and placed this there were sims inside. Might wanna update the file with an unplayed copy. Other than that, a wonderful lot.

@up: even in an unplayed lot (and unplayed custom neighbourhood - checked it myself) those sims would spawn - it's because of the makover chair There's nothing wrong with the lot itself

Really nice lot. I love the smallness and sparseness of it. And thanks for bringing to my attention the default glass replacement. That tinted glass has bugged me for awhile now.

I was not looking for a hair salon ... I was looking for a restaurant for my beach/tropical hood ... but sometimes, people might want a makeover in a vacation hood. At least the locals might. And while I made a hair salon ages ago, it apparently seems to be lost in time. I can't find it in my backups because silly me forgot to package it, and I don't seem to see any sign of it in my backed-up lot catalogs.

Your lot is very much what I like in lots .... small (I usually lean toward smaller lots when building), roomy, not TOO much CC (if it goes much over a dozen to a dozen and a half, I get glassy-eyed and usually skip over the lot). Nicely-made, great routing, great use of space. Thank you for sharing this!

And for those who have issues with spawned NPCs (Hey ... I do myself, even though 98% will say I'm being really, really silly with hairdressers, waiters, etc.!), put the lot in a junk hood, remove the chairs, clean the references using the Lot Compressor, re-package. Plop the chairs back in when you place the lot.

Now to find that small beachy (but NOT beach lot ... I've made enough of those to last quite a while!) restaurant that doesn't have a long list of CC. You're out there ... or I will have to make you myself! :)
