Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
TLDR: this is the Film rabbithole on a 40x40 lot.

Longer version: So, Late Night is awesome! Except for the problem of ginormous lots. I was monumentally miffed when I found no space to put in the movie lot in Sunset Valley and immediately embarked on a quest for smaller lots and equal superstar-making opportunities for spatially challenged neighborhoods. It appears the movie lot only needs the rabbithole to function, and the smallest size it will fit is 40x40 lot. So I built it. It fits very nicely in multiple places in Sunset Valley, and most probably other hoods as well. There are some sets around the lot too, just to make things interesting.

I playtested: my sim had no problem getting the job, getting tasks out on the town (note that some of those require new Late Night type of buildings to be present, like clubs and bars)or being promoted, and random sims were assigned jobs in the lot just like the game usually does. I didn’t have enough patience to reach the top of the career though , so please if you find that I DID manage to screw something up don’t hesitate to tell.

This is the lot, nestled safely near the Sunset Valley beach (I demolished one of the empty houses to free up a lot).



Those are some of the sets:



There are four total: a garden with a pond, a paneled house, a romantic-looking balcony and a castle wall. Aside from the rabbithole and the sets there’s nothing else on the lot. No CC, no stuff packs used to decorate.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

OMG! Thank you so very much! I have finally decided to give up on Bridgeport. Although it is beautifull It is a pain in the butt to play. It takes sims forever to get from one place to another for various reasons. Last night I decided to start upgrading my Sunset Valley with LN lots and was totally POed that i couldn't find anywhere to put this lot. This will help allot.

This seems useful. That default one was a pain to fit into the older neighborhoods. This one is just right.

Thank you for this. Its going to help a lot. EA should have provided a rabbit hole utility with late night (or ambitions), but ack, apparently nobody tried to continue playing old neighborhoods in playtesting?

Thank you so much for making this and sharing it. I had no where to place the EA version in Twinbrook that did not sink into the terrain, thus making it not visitable. You are awesome, and I cannot thank you enough.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! You have NO idea how many issues I had trying to fit a stupid 60x64 lot into my tiny town- this worked great! I have played this in game and it works great. I just set it to "visitors allowed"
