FUNNY ! In My Custom hood I name the laundry Place "Wishy Washy" Also I can't seem to get away from the color blue, and both neighborhood I use blue but different t shades of it.
I guess because when I think of water or a place with water I think of the color blue.

I like that name. *might steal it*

Greengrocers.
Do they still use that term? I can't remember if I showed my farming family who run the greengrocers. I can't really call it a grocery store or a supermarket as all they sell is produce. Their own locally grown and imported fruit and veg.

I know I've looked at realistic yields before, but for some reason chose not to use it. How does it affect their earning in produce/money? Does it end up being more, or less?

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

It gives more produce at cheaper prices. BO says what it does.

Since Leefish is going really slowly I will paste it here
Quote:
It changes the yields of all fruit trees, to give 40 units per harvest. It also changes Apples to be no more nutricious than Lemons and Oranges, and it alters their prices to conform to normal food: §2 per food point.

Additionally it changes the prices for all other produce to the same standard.

@ joandsarah77 Yes that term "Greengrocers" is still use here in the US, on the regular news they have a segment where they show the man who is the Greengrocer; to let people know what fruits and vegetables are in and good for the seasons.
As always I just "love" your pictures and your businesses, Oh go ahead if you like and use that title for your Laundromat , it just pop into my head while laying in bed, there are different way you can spell it
Wishy Washy or Wishie Washie .

I read that, but I don't know what the normal yield is in terms of cash, so it doesn't tell me much about what the end result is. Does it end up being more, due to being more produce, or is the netto balance lower? (If you know )

I've never really checked. I'm not really a maths or spread sheet kind of person. I think it would probably work out as less cash but it might be close.

I'll have to investigate at some point. It'd be nice if Sims could buy produce a bit cheaper, as I like my Sim kids to get a glass of energy-boost juice every day, so that they manage to stay awake an entire day. Their energy really goes down too fast. But my farmer-couple also really needs cash, so it needs to pan out more or less the same for them in terms of what a plot gives.

@gummilutt
I don't do maths either but I'm using "realistic yields" too. In my farm, produces are set at average since the first generation. With BO's mod in place, produces are sold cheaper than before I got the mod.

@Simonut
I like your Laundromat. I wanted to have one in my hood when I saw Icad's autonomous version of washers and dryers.

@joandsarah77
Nice greengrocery (is that a word?). It seems roomier than your other lots. I like the road stall. I'm not sure but I think there are links in the WCIF forum I found it: http://crispsandkerosene.tumblr.com...nverted-for-ts2
Is the stall just decorative or can one put produces in it?

It's a produce bin, like the ingame ones, so sims buy groceries from it. You can't stock it with your own grown fruit and veg but sims can restock and buy from it. I think that lot is 1 by 2.

@ Essa Thank you the Laundromat was fun to make my Sims are enjoying it, and yes Greengrocery is a word.

I got mine from NinthWaveSims, but it's been taken down from the site where I got it. It's not on the Graveyard yet. If nobody has an alternate link to a public site with it, I'd be happy to upload it for you.

Offer it to the graveyard Esme, as I am not even sure where my file is as I have it in my old game with it's messy Download folder.

I'll do that. There's a firefighter's coat and a fire axe in the set as well, and I even have the original file that I downloaded, so I don't have to repackage them. I just have to find that file in my jumbled-up "Original files" folder...

If you are uploading them all can you pm me the file as well? Just in case I can't find them.

@joandsarah77 I can't PM them to you because your inbox is full, which is probably also why you missed my reply to your PM last night. I've submitted the files to the Graveyard, but I don't know how long it takes to get them uploaded. In the meantime I've uploaded them to my Box: https://app.box.com/s/kdmz9aibrz17pqgkstys3w76pwfrfctq

Mods, if this link is Not Allowed under site rules, let me know and I'll remove it!

Posting again for a new business.

I was looking through some pictures from my old sims 2 folder and found these.
