The Casbah Sim Sala Bim Hotel
Updated: 30th Jul 2013 at 2:56 AM - Requested changes for upload
During the renovations, the building grew and took on a Moroccan/Spanish influence, but it still retains the basic outline of the hacienda it was built from. It works best on Twikki Island (what with the palm trees and all...) but of course you can use it wherever it suits your fancy.
Layout of the Casbah:
This is a three story building with no foundation. On the first floor, you will find the check-in desk and four of the seven total bedrooms; the dance area and the pool are straight back past the concierge, and in the back of the lot in separate buildings are the restaurant and the massage table / hot tub. On the second floor are the public bathrooms, the other three bedrooms, and access to the front balconies where sims can play chess or lounge on a hammock. The third story contains only the top of the front tower, which is inaccessible and purely decorative. There is sandstone beneath all the normal roofs because this lot has fully painted ceilings to give you the best vacation photos possible! Please see attached screenshots below for the second story floorplan and additional close up details.
Casbah Sim Sala Bim has a host of fun amenities, including a swimming pool, hot tub, massage table, restaurant/bar, a coffee lounge with flatscreen tv and fireplace, and bubble hookah! I also put "world" speakers in that large empty square in the courtyard. This is where NPC's are encouraged to hula dance (or slap dance, your call).
It has seven rooms to choose from. Each room size except the family suite is available with either blue or gold decor. I opted to omit the tv's from the rooms and gave them all fancy beds instead. They can still watch tv in the Casbahbar if they get cartoon withdrawal. Costs are as follows:
One Single Bed (Gold Room): $648/night
One Single Bed (Blue Room): $653/night (it has an extra window)
Two Single Beds (Gold or Blue): $783/night
One Double Bed (Gold or Blue): $812/night
Family Suite: One Double Bed and Two Single Beds (Gold Only): $1242/night
The Casbahbar is the hotel's small restaurant / bar, located next to the swimming pool. It has a display kitchen where sims can watch their food being prepared. This is also where sims can have coffee and watch the flatscreen tv or enjoy a roaring hot fire in the middle of 120 degree tropical weather! (Or they can turn on that big fan overhead. Whatever.) That coffee pot was originally an espresso maker, but espresso-sipping sims were hogging the bar stools, whereas coffee-sipping sims go for the couches first. So I switched it to regular joe to make the lot play nicer.
My goal was to make this CC-free, but I had a couple things I just couldn't give up. First is an invisible recolor of the small hotel desk by sunni9676; it is not included, but you can download it here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=418268. Second are some of HystericalParoxysm's plastic flowers. They look just like the maxis flowers (minus the groundcover) and most importantly, they don't need to be watered! (I find that the hotel maid tends to let my flowers die). If you don't already have these flowers, its worth getting the whole set.
This lot has been playtested... with ninjas. They went on vacation and played with everything . They got on hammocks, they blew bubbles, they jumped on beds, called information from every room in the hotel, and generally ran amok! So everything should be bug-free at this point, but if not... I apologize, and I blame the ninjas.
I hope you enjoy this hotel!

Creating and building in the sims is a big hobby of mine. Everything I upload is intended to be free, and is meant for the enjoyment of everyone. Please keep my creations off the paysites, and please give credit where credit is due. Other than that, have fun with it! You may recolor and redistribute anything I've shared on MTS. I appreciate a link back and a notification if you do use my stuff... mostly because I'm so curious to see what you do with it! :-)
