Maybe roll a dice to see if he gets caught and send him to jail. My hood only has a small police station but it does have one cell. So it doesn't have to be an elaborate set up. I would then use Christianlov's transport mirror and add a Simlogical prisoner tag to his inventory and have him spend a few days in jail.

@Essa I had a look in Body Shop and it says Lilith-Newsea Hush Baby for Dolly's hair. Hope that helps.

I've been building a lot of community lots for Veronaville and staying with the Shakespeare offers up some inspiration! No pictures, as I was so focused on Build Mode that it didn't occur to me snap a few shots.

Still, I have so far:
- Rude Mechanicals Theatre: an outdoor stage with seating and public bathroom. Very plebeian for the peasant-folk.
- Mistress Quickly's Merry House: a gambling club with plenty to drink. Strictly catering to gentlemen and their select lady friends for the night
- Kate Keepdown Nightclub: a crowded dance club for the young crowd.
- Capp Family Crypt: owned by the Capp family, all their graves have been moved here.
- Monty Family Restaurant: owned by the Monty family, they offer dining, drinks, and a fine bakery.
- H&M Veronaville (madeover): I took the bland H&M intended for Veronaville and made it fit for Veronaville.
- Love's Labor's Lost in Hedge Maze: from Downtown.
- Prince Escalus's Garden: originally King's Garden.

Jo, am always impressed by how you put together your lots and your hood! I have a question for you: How would you set up a clinic as a community (non-owned) lot? I'd like to have one at Uni, but you can't own Uni lots.

@conversesneaker those sound like awesome lots! Do you have pictures?

Thanks esme. That's a tricky one as none of the cc medicine would be buyable and I don't know if the Doctors bag works on community lots. I guess If I wanted this as one one I would sell this back, move them out and change the zoning. Sims would be able to study, and with the sleep on community lots mod they could stay over in a ward. If you have the buy and build mode enabler (or use the cheat) and have medicine on shelves sims could help themselves. With some tweaking it could become a dorm and be a medical school.

Police Station and Fire Station

I have these two together, both are basically the same layout but with some colour changes and the police station has a jail cell. Both are small and basic since the hood is new and they both had quite a few mortgage shrubs. In my old hood they were both larger with more sims.

ooooh clinics and hospitals - I love those (and police stations and firestations). Very nice Jo - I'll try and upload some pics of mine later. I use Chris Hatch's hospital mod for clinics - that would work Esme on university lots but I think you have a Mac? Not sure if the hospital mod would work with the limited EPs.

I no longer come over to MTS very often but if you would like to ask me a question then you can find me on tumblr or my own site tflc. TFLC has an archive of all my CC downloads.

For those of you who have completed (or tried) a BACC: how can I run a dance studio? Any tips?
Lab Assistant
#62 Old 10th Aug 2015 at 6:48 PM
I've had trouble getting profit/stars with a dance studio... but I did have one: small community business. Ballet Barres, big mirrors, bathrooms... and of course the bandatron. And, to break the alliteration, a couple of radios.
I'd be very interested in a more successful one, too!

#63 Old 10th Aug 2015 at 7:03 PM
I don't know what a BACC is, but I did create a dance studio. I had a mother with high interest in music/dance and who also was a professional flamenco dancer in her dancing career open a dance studio. The back room was mirrored and contained 4-6 ballet bars, the front room had a stage with a DJ booth which her husband with high creativity ran for dancing or dance contests, and then in a side room was the break dancing mat so other sims could learn. Of course there were bathrooms, changing rooms, and showers too because all the dancing can leave a smelly sim. Also vending machines for anyone who wanted a snack break. The bandatron was placed out front for 10-15 simoleons an hour and that's how money came in.

Edit: Since she also has high enough interest in music/dance she can also instruct patrons which gives her a more 'dance teacher' feel.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

I suceeded in bringing the dance studio to level 5 (hallelujah! Luckily I won't play that lot again!). I used the mother (Gold in sales), the teen son (Gold in sales) and the Servo (also Gold in sales). Usually the Servo would DJ, while the teen and the mother would try to sell some tickets and schmooze their way to sufficient Customer Loyalty Stars.
My lot consisted of a 2-story brick building with those AL (I guess?) windows. The first floor had a breakdancing mat (outside), a DJ Booth and some musical instruments (this lot was a hybrid - I unlocked both Music and Dance careers with it) and, of course, VENDING MACHINES!!!! My saviours... Thank you for not letting my Sims starve... On the second floor there were mirrors, ballet barres, sofas, a grand piano and a bar. However, most Sims decided to stay on the first floor.
I also had a small office, with a door locked to Staff Only. It had a coffee machine, a computer and a phone.

EDIT: Total amount of money spent: 81K
Total amount of money earned: 10K

@Charmful a BACC stands for Build A City Challenge. There are a few rule sets around. My first integrated hood started as a BACC but along the way I decided I wanted to do my own thing and got influenced by the Isle of Tyme and Apple valley, both well known integrated hoods. BACC use a lot of sim owned business the way an integrated hood does.

My old hood had a dance studio. I sold a few small items and held dance contents. It had only really just started before I started on Coral Bay. I would like to have 'classes' for various dances. Not sure yet how I will work that out but probably the meeting controller and a teacher who can do the hula or slap dance and have them all join in and then pay them after class with Christianlov's wallet token controller.

Sims with the flu are admitted to the ward. The main one has a bookcase, easel, private bathroom and a snap dragon, it's a pretty comfortable stay I should think. I use Christianlov's teleporter mirror there to bring them in and the door is kept locked. Can't have flu ridden sims wandering the hallways. I think that is everything I do to run the health clinic. [/spoiler][/QUOTE]

Jo, I love your way of handling flu patients. I hadn't thought of a quarantine area.

PCSims has a dental station and a surgical station that automatically pays you when you render the service upon a sim. I think the dental one pays 500 simoleans and the surgical one pays 800 simoleans. Your doctor could quickly earn a lot using them.

Esme, the PCSims doctor bag works in an un-owned community lot. But there is no designated doctor.

I have a clinic and when I want my sim to be treated, I go through the other sims on the lot, making each one in turn selectable until I find one with at least 5 mechanical points. The bag will only work for sims with at least 5 mechanical points. I then have that sim "be doctor" for my sim and once my sim has been treated, I make the "doctor" sim unselectable again.

I suppose you could have a doctor sim made for the purpose of the clinic and just transport him or her in when your sims need treatment. Otherwise just random sims are the doctor and you can end up with the cheerleader or llama mascot being your doctor at your uni clinic.

I suppose I should take my own advise and make myself a doctor sim.

@ joandsarah77 Such a "great" post thanks for starting it. I been trying to figure out for days how to use a ( Show Spoiler ) any way my pictures are not huge in size, pictures need to be click on for a larger view.

@dawnpage99 I have the dental one in my old hood, I'll have to bring it over once they have the upstairs area done. I think I tried the surgery and didn't like it, I can't really remember, only they make too much money. I like my sims to work hard for what they have, no quick buck.

@Simonut To make a spoiler type {spoiler}Text here {/spoiler} But use the straight sided brackets not these fancy ones.

Very nice shop, I like the zebra print shoe sign.

That's so pretty Essa! Both the hood view and the farm lot itself, very pretty. I wish I had the patience and creative skill to make my hood look like that :P

I love your farm @Essa No the police and fire are 1 by 2, not even I could fit a driveway and a house next to it on a 1 by 1. I do have up for download a 1 by 1 firehouse though. https://www.modthesims.info/d/547678 I crammed a driveway underneath, but it is very very tiny. It's based on the Simcity fire station.

I have a Snapdragon Shop. It really is a good money-maker. All those Snapdragons mean that my Sims will never need to worry about needs (except energy, but I bought a coffee machine). Besides, they basically sell themselves.

@ Essa thank you, happy you like my "Shoe Gallery" your Farm Community is so wonderful I just love it so much. Your Graphic is good is this the Sims 3 ?

@joandsarah77 I love all your pictures and what is going on in your community. Like the Sims school, and hospital, I would love to have a school for my Sims, now the Police Station is the crime really bad in that community ? Joking

Well since I started this hood (and gen 1 kids are just now turning into YA) there has been at least 5 burglaries, one even on my runaway teen lot where the kid only had a tent and a few tomato plants (he stole her tent) and numerous pickpocketings so I would say yes! The crime rate is terrible.

The farm is Sim 2, Essa has a sky mod and it looks like a lighting mod. My computer wont run a sky mod, I tried it once all it showed was some grey on the horizon. it's too old.
