Simmy, I need a lot that is 30 wide by 20 deep, for my community lot: Pet Shop/ Groomers/ Boarding.

Also, for names, I like Petanica the best, just Petanica.

The name Cattails Beach, is a suggestion for the beach lot. I was looking through the build mode plants and there it was.

Thanks for the suggestions, attuned! Both sound good to me. Cattails is a super name for the beach! As Norn suggested, I've determined which direction the water flows so I can add some waves.

The two community lots under the cat's first "stripe" are 30 x 20s as is the lot below the dog's collar. In addition, there are 30x20s below the city "square" 64x64 lot and under the 40x40 on the dog side. All have road frontage on the 30 tile wide side; several on 2 sides. The last two I mentioned are currently coded as residential but could easily be changed. Take your pick! I'll be happy to place it wherever you'd like. Thank you for building it!

If your "groomer" shop is for both cats and dogs, maybe Petlandoo ...

I have a few shells on 10x10 lots. Is there any space left for them?

If there'll be too many humans wherever I have to go, I'd rather stay home

Oh, that would be great! There are 3 10x10s left, I believe. Did you want to post them for someone to decorate first? Or, just post them as shells? Whichever you prefer. Feel free to post here in the thread or in SimsFileShare - whatever works for you. Thanks very much!

I'll post them for others to decorate and landscape. Then you can choose 3 and the remaining one could be sumbitted under M4B. That'd be my idea

Ok, horse ranch is done. I will play around test it a bit more before uploading. It has some empty space in the attic (it's fully usable except for a slight headache ) which I would just leave empty. Unless someone has a good idea what to put there It also doesn't have a name nor description yet. Any ideas for this?

SimmyRN, it sits on the 40x40 lot across the EC. If EA thinks an EC works on such a small lot we can do as well! It looks quite nice.

[ETA] Most lots around the "town center" don't have addresses yet. But I love those that have some! Nice street names! :D

I made a mistake. The 4 shells are on 10x15 lots, not 10x10.

Thanks, Norn, the lot looks great! Also, thank you for reminding me about naming the lots around the square as I forgot.

Johnny,
Your houses are so cute! Thanks! They all appear to be 10x15 with the 10 tile wide side fronting on the street. Is that correct? I'll have to do a bit of rearranging as most of the 10x15s on the map have the 15 tile wide side fronting on the street. But, I hope to get at least 2 or 3 onto the map. I really appreciate your assistance!

Norn- the ranch is great! The barn looks so real, and I really like the landscaping in the corners of the fenced in part. WOW. I am pretty sure an indoor grill is against fire code, and that roof would give a sim more than a little headache.

@Johnny_Bravo Love these houses! It is great how you built such completely different styles on such compact lots. That Victorian is my favorite, though the Craftsman is a close second.

SIMMY- (sorry to shout) Johhny's note on the other thread says he is not sure which EPs are needed for each lot. We might not be able to use all of them. He offered lots for the decorators match thread, and I suggested that we could use a couple for Pet Town. If Johnny agrees to it, I could probably reproduce one on a 10 X 10, using only BG and Pets.

Does anyone have a great knowledge of which build items belongs to which EP, or a way to test for that?

I spot the Showtime bungalow windows in the first and third house, the fence on the fourth's porch is from Supernatural, and I think the columns on the second are Ambitions but I'm not so good on columns. I might play the eye-spy game while the game loads...

Yes the 10-tiled side is face to the street. It's easier to build deeper into the lots rather than making the homes wider

It's simplest for me to click on the items and look in the catalog but there are websites that list what items came with what expansion packs, I believe. What I always wonder about are the wallpapers and CAST items. There was one 10x15 lot with 10 tile street frontage already on the map. I managed to replace/re-arrange and get 2 more 10x15s on there. (Had to sacrifice another lot to do so but managed to replace it with 2 10x15s and a 10x10.) So, is Johnny okay with us changing his builds to base game/Pets only? Or, would you rather rebuild them on 10x15's, attuned, if that is okay with Johnny? Whatever works best that Johnny is happy with is fine with me. If you need me to download the shells and go through them item by item I can. Just let me know. I need to update the lot list in the first post. I can post the map with the 4 10x15 lots on SimsFIleShare, if you'd like me to? Thanks!

Simmy- I realized that any game starter can be used to sort the items. Any items not included in BG or Pets will be replaced. The problem is that I didn't remember to tell Johnny that we were only using the Pets EP. I am not sure how this will affect the look of his lots, or how he feels about this. I will ask him. If he agrees, we then need a new version of the lot for the decorator, not to mention we also need a decorator. I was going to advertise for one in the TS3 forum, but I wanted to get all of this sorted first. Hopefully we can use one or two of Johnny's lots. As for wallpaper and CASt, since they are shells the wallpaper can be replaced. Any other build items can be recolored. I will get back to you when I hear from Johnny and have a plan.

About the world itself, is the plan still to upload an empty version by Feb. 28? I think the empty version can be without RH lots also, unless you want them included. Or there can be a completely empty version and a RH only version, included in the same upload. Then at a later date we can upload the lots, or the world with the lots placed. We can even upload different versions of lots, for instance, a consignment shop that can be added if you have Ambitions. For the world, I haven't run into any problems while testing. If Norn's testing has gone well, I think we need a name and then we are good to go.

I think you should pick your three favorite names, and ask people to vote using the buttons, so vote "agree" for Pet Town, "disagree" for Petanica Islands, "helpful for Petlandia.

Just let me know.

I think uploading a completely empty version and a RH only version in the same upload will be fine. Then, as you said, we can upload a version with lots and alternate lots as well if people want to build alternate lots.

Made a post for name voting. Thanks, attuned!

I can't decide between Simpetia Isles and Petlandia.
As for my shells, you guys can do as you please on them if the've been designated for this world. I don't think that the appearence will change drastically.

Thanks Johnny!

@tunafishfish we are on. I saw Johnny commented on the thread that he is okay with changes to his lots. Can you post pictures here, or in Johnny’s new thread when it goes up, and then link to it here? We can use at least two shells for Pet Town. Thanks for making them BG and Pets friendly- it is much appreciated.

I'll post pics later tonight or tomorrow. We're having one of those freak warm days and if I don't get outside for most of the day, I'll be kicking myself over it when the real weather returns!

Was there a budget you were thinking of for these? The craftsman was at like $15,000 for the shell, and now that it's fully decorated is at almost $30,000. I expect the colonial to be more like $50,000-$60,000 because it's 3 bedrooms and a basement. I think I should be able to keep the 1 bedroom bungalow's costs down.

That poll looks like a neck-and-neck race Too much choice, it seems...

SimmyRN, it's probably too late but I had an idea how to get more room for bigger lots. After staring at the map for a while I wondered why there were so many roads. You could remove some in order to make more room for slightly bigger lots. The roads along the rifts are not really necessary, also that small grass road connecting one of the stripes with the "town center" could go. The red zigzag line in the picture is supposed to explain what I mean (Please ignore the rest of the world, my town is a mess ) It's not much, but if we can change some 10x10 to 15x10, 15x15 or even 20x15 it would be quite a gain.

I sent you the link to the horse ranch in a pm. I uploaded it to MTS also, it's in the queue now.

Interesting idea! I'll take a look at it and see. Thanks for the upload of the horse ranch! Once I rework the roads/lots, I'll send the 2 versions (empty and w/rabbitholes) for you to look at. I really appreciate your help!

Thanks for your help! There are several starter houses on the map so, if you can make 1 a starter for a couple (under 18,500), that would be fine.
