    Wow, Gem, this is helpful to me as a player. You don't need to use CAW to appreciate having this info at your fingertips. Thanks!

    P.S. Hoping to see pics from your house full of gurus in the WE thread. :D

    I am just starting to play around with CAW. The only thing I am having trouble with is the Lot Categories... I assigned the ones I wanted for my world... such as School, Market, Graveyard..... Do I have to build on these lots or is it by default? Also when I go into edit in game I dont remember which lot i assigned to which category.. I put a coffee house where I thought I wanted it and it messed up.. the stage is there but not the building.. wasnt sure if it just glitched or if it was because I assigned the lot something else.

    This question might sound a bit dumb to some, but is it possible to get lot sizes for all of them. I noticed that for the first part of this thread it is just the commercial lot names but not their sizes.
    I have the base game, Ambitions, Late Night, Hidden Springs, World Adventures and Supernatural, so some of these are new to me. I will likely be getting the rest bit by bit.
    As it stands though, I am starting an island (Large Flat 300 w/ 300 elevation), and therefore it needs a harbor. I was wondering if there are any harbor type lots. I would be needing some form of larger ships to dot the port. I know there is a sailboat in objects, but are there ships or a harbor and if so, what EP does it/do they come with?
    I'm not talking about those custom made "sorta" ships. I mean ones that really look right.
    PS: Gemini, thank you for this thread. It will come in very handy in the future. I'll be likely building my own rabbit holes for uniqueness, but the rest of this info is great. If you do put the other lot sizes in I would be able to put this up on one monitor while working on my map from my other one. Great work!!!

    also, i noticed someone else wondering what ive been wondering.. when you set a lot using the drop down menu, for market, academy, etc... are you the one who builds it or does the game do it?

    I was about to start some more editing of my hoods and found this very useful thread. Thank you :thumbup: I don't know if anyone has updated the info anywhere else, but I compiled a list of more recent things which have not been included. I hope I did the sizes ok - I did what wall lengths would fit around each rabbithole. Obviously, I couldn't do the sizes for DV since it's not out yet :D

    You might have to do an update. Unfortunately I'm having trouble getting showtime hybrid venues to work when it comes to Simport. Also you're missing the University venues. Just thought I should let you know.

    Thanks! I really especially appreciate the sizes for each rabbithole/building as lately I have been into creating multi-lots to group needed lots into one or more so worlds have them all available and easy to get to - then I can delete the smaller lots in the worlds and reuse them for homes or other types of community lots.

    I copy/pasted your post so it will always be close at hand for me. Again - Thank You!

    By the way - For the Ambitions/Day Care if you have "Aurora Skies" you can also use the "Tiny Prodigies Early Learning Center" for toddlers and kids. And - a Pet Store, if you have "Pets" but not the special lot, can be built using things in buy mode and buydebug. In supernatural there are bars specific to the supernatural type/open to all plus different types of hangouts that are in Moonlight Falls plus which can be created/items-rabbitholes added to other lots.

    When you set a lot type as community then type of community lot - it only designates that lot as community/ small park, horse ranch, visitor allowed, etc. - Then you either build the lot you want, placing the rabbithole building(s)(from buydebug) or building the other lot types from scratch - or you place a lot from your bin either by maxis or downloaded of the same lot size into the empty lot.
