Red Dunes- A desert neighbourhood built around an oasis.



Red Dunes is a decorated main neighbourhood with residential and community lots. There are no sims and no subhoods.

It is made using all EPs and SPs on a fully patched game. You will need a patched game with all EPs and SPs, or else the Ultimate Collection, to play this neighbourhood.

There is no custom content in this neighbourhood.

Neighbourhood ID: SRED UID: 2113
Terrain Type Desert

6 Community lots

The Adobe Motel is zoned as a Hotel; your sims will be able to visit, check in and sleep there, but not save the game until they leave the lot. Ordinary townies may not show up there, but if you either add a vacation subhood, or else spawn some tourist sims, then these have a chance to turn up and check-in to a room.

Crater Beach has no waves; I did this deliberately as I envisaged it as being on a non-tidal desert salt lake. If you wish to have waves on this beach, you can download the portal revealer and wave portals by Inge Jones to allow you to replace these. Load a standard beach lot in another neighbourhood to see correct pacement of the waves.

Recommended mods:
Portal revealer and wave portals by Inge Jones
Allow souvenirs in non-vacation hoods by Lord Darcy
Colour Enabler Package by Numenor (without this, the public toilets will be the wrong colour)
CEP Extra Qube by HugeLunatic (without this, the qube tables will be the wrong colour)
Bamboo texture fix by me
I used my own modded camera parameters to build this neighbourhood. It is recommended, but not necessary, to use a camera mod to play. There are several available on this site.
