My project was to make the current rabbit holes more interesting for our sims.
Each lot is designed to replace the Rabbit hole of the same name within the Riverview World. Each lot contains the original rabbithole plus an additional area of interest, most contain toilets and some contain creches for the kids/babies. I have changed 10 lots.

Truelong Community school classroom:


You will need the Riverview World which you can download free from http://store.thesims3.com/riverview.html

The set includes 10 lots:


City Hall (includes museum, cafe, toilets, creche)
30X64
Furnished $89,017
Unfurnished $49,518

Sunflower Spa (includes Three Little Bears Daycare centre)
20X25
Furnished= $56,599
Unfurnished= $23,795

Divisadero Budget Books (includes internet cafe, toilets, creche)
20X25
Furnished= $42,280
Unfurnished= $22,330

Wilsonoff Community Theatre (includes mini cinema/stage, toilets, creche)
25x35
Furnished= $69,070
Unfurnished= $37,000

Police Department (includes Temporary holding cells)

Unfurnished= $15,163

Truelong Community School (Library, IT Dept, Classrooms etc)

Unfurnished= $32,260

County Care General Hospital (Doctors surgery, outpatient ward with maternity unit)
44x30
Furnished= $67,685
Unfurnished= $46,792

Since the City Hall doubles up as a museum, I decided to redo the inside of the Octagon Museum and created a wedding chapel. Although this is not a rabbithole, it is included to complete the set.

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.

If we place them in our game and delete the original rabbit holes will it effect our currently saved game? I would LOVE to place this in my game but was just wondering about that.

@simfan432
A rabbit hole is a building which Sims disappear into without you being able to follow them or see what they're doing. When your Sim goes to work, etc he goes to a 'rabbit hole' (named for obvious reasons ... Sims walk inside a 'hole' and 'disappear').

@others
You need to be aware that the rabbit holes weren't altered - what sigil5 did was build on a community lot and use the moveobjects cheat to place the rabbit holes so it would appear to belong together with his buildings. Nevertheless a great idea!
If you replace EA's community lots containing rabbit holes it may result in some problems... experienced them with my school Sims mainly. However, a restart sometimes fixes it ... just try your luck ;-)

Thats correct, I have only added to the existing rabbit holes by building around them.

always back up your game, just in case

No, I've put 2 museum type rooms (plus cafe+toilets) on the grounds of the City Hall see the thumbnails in post 2#. The Octagon Chapel replaces the Octagon museum which if I remember rightly is located somewhere near Sunflower spa and Bookstore in the middle of the town.

Hello, thanks so much for your feedback on the CFF thread!

First, great work Sigil5! I had never imagined that we could anything - with cheats or without it - about the rabbit holes. You did not only a great job when decorating the spaces - I loved the music room and the Octagon Chapter - but also when choosing which building to "glue" each of your recreations areas. A spa definitely needs a day care center, for example! Thank you!

But before making my decision (to install it in my game), I'd like to know more about the issues that messing with EA's rabbit holes cause. You see, I'm playing a Legacy Challenge and I don't wanna risk it. How frequent do the game crash and what exactly is this crash like, Rockerduck?
