Although I personally don't own Lunar Lakes, I've enjoyed looking at all the wonderful pictures of those who do and was inspired to make something for it. Since the neither Salon/Tattoo Parlor from either "Ambitions" or "Pets" would look good in Lunar Lakes, I decided to remodel the one from the sim bin that came with "Pets" because I thought the floorplan/design would work well with the spacey theme.
I used those free space-themed items that came with the latest patch and I think it turned out quite nicely. Of course you'll probably want to tweak it a bit when you get it (i.e. delete the base game park bench I used and use the Lunar Lakes one instead and the same thing with maybe the wall lights). I didn't use any terrain paint other than the crystal paver one that came with the patch so hopefully the space terrain will replace the Riverview grass that showing in my pictures. :-)
I tried to replicate what I've seen in the all Lunar Lake screenshots I've seen so that it blends in with the town/world. Here's some pictures of it...
First here's the outside front.
And here's the outside back, I put big trees and fountains to help it blend in and not be so plain.
I put it on a 20x30 lot, I sure hope there's an empty one in Lunar Lakes to use, that's the size of lot I tend to use most often.

And on the roof, I put that solar panel floor tile like I saw on the roofs of EA built Lunar Lakes buildings so it would blend in some more.
You can download it in my studio here:http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5198254
I use things from the following EPs and SPs...
Base Game, High End Loft, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Town Life, and Master Suites.
Forgot to add this originally...
No CC used, Not even Store Items, only items from Base, EPs, and SPs.
I hope you all like it, I think I'll make a Lunar Lakes Consignment Shop next if you all like this one.
I think everybody's looking for commercial EP-lots for the new words, thanks for sharing!
Left you a well deserved rec.
It's my lunar lakes thread to share lots
It did turn out to look much nicer than what I had originally thought in my head. I just hope that those grassy areas turn out look right when someone actually puts it in Lunar Lakes.
I posted a copy of my post in your thread too, I hope it plays well in Lunar Lakes for everyone.
Thank you, Kirkuk...
Great please do and if there's anything that I need to tweak/change let me know about that too and I'll gladly fix them. If I have time later this week I'll start the Lunar Lakes Consignment Shop too.
I'm glad you like it too, I was a bit afraid that not having Lunar Lakes or any of the Futureshock Sets would hinder it's looks but I was definitely wrong.
There's a lot of stuff in High End Stuff and Late Night that when recolored, looks pretty spacey and I think helps look very Lunar Lakes-ish to me.
Your creations looks very pretty, I recommended everything in your studio.
I've got a Pet Shop in mind too, I do plan eventually getting Lunar Lakes when I can afford it and want all these lots in it when I do get it too.
I plan on making spacey-themed versions of the consignment shop, fire station, junkyard, pet shop, and at least one club/bar (not sure on type yet though).
I was hoping that's how it would turn how, I guess we'll find out after Kirkuk posts her pictures and feedback. Thanks for all the rec's too.
Yep, no CC (I don't use CC except for mods that fix issues with the game and a couple of face-body default skin replacements). I edited the original post to mention that there's no CC used since I forgot to mention that. Oh and I didn't use any Store Items either, just stuff from EPs and SPs.
Thanks so much, Kirkuk...
Wow, it looks so awesome in Lunar Lakes! Thanks so much for taking the time to share pictures of it with me(us).
I hope you enjoy using it in your game as much as I enjoyed building and sharing it.
I've actually never posted a lot that I've created before and just uploaded it to my studio in the past.
Thanks again for all the rec's everyone. As I get more Lunar Lakes themed lots done I'll probably just keep adding them to this thread.
Thank you, Nh6650...
Thank you so much for the rec, I really appreciate it so much!
Hope that my next creations can stand up to this to the quality of this one as now I have an audience. LOL
Great news and I'm a bit in shock right now, I was gifted Lunar Lakes by the awesomely generous Blacksheba1973. I'm in so much shock that I might I have to check to see if I've pee'd myself.
Thank you so much everyone for the kinds words and rec's and an especially big thank you to Blacksheba1973. I was not expecting this and have been using the Swagbucks website watching videos for the last few days trying to earn an EA Card to get Lunar Lakes with.
Expect to see a special Lunar Lakes Lot dedicated to you soon!
Thank you for sharing
I will be watching to see what else you come up with, along with the others, and for now, I have rec'ed your entire studio. Thanks so much for sharing your lots and Sims. This will be a great lot to play in and there should be no routing troubles. :thumbup:
That's right and now they can have the extra spacey lights, windows, and doors too.
Thanks again, Blacksheba1973...
I'm still in shock and I've decided that when I get to the dance club/bar that will be dedicated to you and I'll make it extra special.
Thanks so much and I hope you like it too!
Thank you so much for the thought and thank you again for all the rec's in my studio. Wow, today has turned out to be an awesome Sunday... thanks again, everyone!!!
