Why sleep in a base camp if you can sleep in a hotel?
In Rue de Provence you can find: restaurant, hotel, bookshop and wine shop.
(Require WA ep)
(NO custom contents)



Lot is perfect if placed instead of the original bookshop, in France.
Save the original bookshop lot (i don't know the name in english, in italian is named Libreria della Conoscenza, Knowledge Bookshop) in the catalogue or move into an emptly lot, and place there Rue de Provence.
The community lot must be MARKET type



My favourite room in the hotel is a little attic (see this pic



Rocks over the great arc are not to destroy, I used this object (from tomb objects) only for decorative purpose.

Wine Shop has a basement for produce nettar. You can buy the grapes in the shop and produce your nettars.
Over bookshop there's a free library.
There are 3 rooms in the hotel, two are luxury rooms, one is the mansard my sim used to live when she stay in france holiday.



One of the thing I prefer in TS3 is the possibility to sleep everywhere in community lots. So, we can have immediately hotels !
Enjoy

Thank you, BlackOrchid, I knew that I could count on you in Sims3, too! I'm planning to re-arrange my base neighborhood Sunset Valley to a French Maritime/Cote d'Azure style town. Do you think this lot works in the base town, too, as a community lot?

hm, I don't know if markets work there because in my game, in Sunset Valley, i cannot choose Community>Market in the menu. When I change the type of a community lot, in foreign neighborhoods, I can have "little market", "big market" etc. But in the residence neighborhood seems that these choices disappear. Or not? I think hotels work fine, but for markets I suppose you couldn't buy nothing. Try and let me know.

I couldn't get the lot to place. I removed the other markets first as in your instructions, but when I clicked on place copy No lots showed for placement.
Help!

it's in the maxis lot in front of mine.
I uncheck the "hide objects" in the options menu (otherwise shutters become invisible), and probably in my game now there's the Shutters Rebellion : )

Help!

You had to delete only the bookshop in France, not all markets. I built my lot over that, so it's very odd you can't place it there. It fits perfectly..

I tried deleting just the bookshop and it worked beautifully. I can't buy a book from the bookseller though. She doesn't have any books in her inventory. Any idea how to fix it?

This lot is lovely! I totally loved it. And the best part is that it has 3 shops in the same lot. I hate that, in France, each store occupies a separate lot. Beautiful work!

So that means you can only have cash registers on destinations? No cheat to have it on sunset or riverview?

#25 Old 3rd Jan 2010 at 1:09 PM
Of course you can have shops/cash registers in base neighborhoods (Sunset Valley). I have one. The difference is, that you can buy only the default food/books at home towns, plus a random (and sometimes randomly changing) sim is assigned to be the cashier by the game.
