The High Street Project (Complete)

High Street Main Image Shrunk

(This download can also be found at ModTheSims)

This download contains 3 separate lots, designed to snap together (thanks to the Lot Adjuster) but they can also be used individually. Each lot has different guidelines depending on how you want to use them. To make the most out of them, please carefully read each lot’s guidelines below.

Some important things to note:

There is very little CC and almost all of it is purely aesthetic (therefore optional).

All lots have been thoroughly tested with the Any Game Starter, though I can’t guarantee anything, especially since I’ve been away from the game a while. This has been a project of mine on and off for about a year, so please do inform me if you come across anything.

All lots are furnished.

All you need to know about Lot (A)

High_Street_A_Front_Labeled

Lot size: 1×3 (Lot Adjusted)
Lot type: Residential
Lot price: $128,956

Lot A is, by default, designed to be an antiques shop. The front room is fully kitted out to start selling old wares as soon as you move in. Of course though, you could renovate this into any kind of shop you like, or not a shop at all. Behind and above the shop are flats (apartments). Now, obviously, apartment lots can not also be businesses, and residential lots won’t allow for multiple households, but I found a little workaround that’s quite simple, shown in steps below.

1) Move in your households and allow them to combine.

2) Using either Inge’s Gender and 4 key door mod or colour keys system, assign your chosen kind of key to each sim and their designated flat’s front door. It should be noted both options have minor downsides. If you choose the gender and 4 key mod, this only works if only one sim occupies each flat, because you are also having to select “…Allow me only” to keep the others out. The plus though is that you can choose your front door’s appearance, which is the downside to the colour keys system.

3) Make all but the sims you’re wanting to play unselectable. You’ll find the deselected sims now act as neighbours would on an apartment lot, and they’ll only be able to access their own flat and the shop. They also will not leave the lot because they’re still technically part of your household.

If you don’t want to go through any of this, you can simply treat the lot as one house, or rezone it to be a community or apartment lot.

All you need to know about Lot (B)

High_Street_B_Front_Labeled

Lot size: 1×3 (Lot Adjusted)
Lot type: Community

This lot is very simple with little to note. It is a community lot and kitted out to be a clothing store. Almost everything is Maxis and what isn’t is optional decor. Note however that CEPis needed for the window frames and toilet stalls to be black.

All you need to know about Lot (C)

High_Street_C_Front_Labeled

Lot size: 3×3
Lot type: Apartment
Rent price: $1, 506 – $2, 097

Lot C is by default, an apartment lot, intended for and best used with MogHughson’s Apartment and Shopping, on the same lot mod. There are 4 flats (apartments) and 2 shops, all pre furnished. One store is a cafe, and through the alley you’ll find a game store.

The lovely town clock by momma”b” is usable in the same way your sims’ alarm clocks are, and you can even see the hand ticking. Special thanks to momma”b” for allowing her awesome clock to be shared.
