The Sim Swap Shoppe is down a further, just keep scrolling and you will see it! 3rd post down.
(10/26/14) So, it seems that I cannot edit my "shoppe" posts anymore? The new forums tell me that I'm like 18,000 characters too long in those posts lol. So, not sure how I'm gonna keep updating those...? Anyone got any ideas?

Hi There! Welcome to the Lot Swap Shoppe, a place to come and Swap a Lot!
-Lot Swap Shoppe is a place for people to "put it out there", for us World builders mostly, (and those who just want new lots to use for whatever reason) that we can "raid" their lots in their studios to use them in our new worlds. Because, lets face it, building several dozen or, possibly 100-200 nicely decorated houses and community lots gets exhausting! This could be a one stop place to come and see which simmers already give their permission to use their lots
without you having to make a new thread, beg on your worlds thread, or ask on other simmers My Pages and end up waiting for people who may, or may not, get back to you in a timely manner, whether or not you can use their lots.
-If you are willing to give permission for both sims and lots, just use the Lot Form below and indicate that you also give permission for sims as well since the only difference between the two forms is the last two questions. Or you can just fill out two forms too...your choice :P Note any changes if necessary.
Of course there are a few requests/rules:
-Anyone who uses the lots should give appropriate recognition by mentioning the creator's name in the description or name of the lot before uploading the world. That's all that most creators really ask for, myself included.
-No picture spam, choose one or two pictures which you feel give a good example of your skill and/or style. The pictures purpose is to entice people to take a further look at your website, thread, or studio. Size your picture to "width=300". Do this by typing "width=300", quotes and all, just before the last bracketed "Img" text in your pictures link. If you are not sure what I'm talking about hit "quote" on someone elses post and look at how they posted their picture.
If you later decided you want me to use a different picture, just let me know, I'm happy to make the change.
-Use the form below in your reply so I can sort you.
Info: Abbreviations for those who may not know. CC=Custom Content
(new content completely made by another player, EA had no part in the creation of it). CAP=Create A Pattern
(a free tool used to make custom patterns which can be applied to furniture, clothing, etc... in game). EP=Expansion Pack, SP=Stuff Pack
-When you ask to be placed on "The List" copy and paste this and fill it out.
Form Type: Lots
Link to studio or website or thread:
-In the lots you upload,
Do you use CC?:

Do you use CAP?:
Yes or No
Do you use store stuff?:
Yes or No
What EPs an SPs do you build with?
Beginner, intermediate, advanced
How do you describe your building style, generally?:
Which lot types can we find in your studio? (residential, community, both):
Residential, Community, A little of both!
Anything else you'd like us to know?
*Skill levels: Pick which best describes you
-I don't build all that often and/or I don't know a lot about it, most of my builds are pretty basic right now with nothing real fancy about them. I don't understand or am not comfortable with CFE, MOO, or other building tricks and cheats.
I think a know a fair amount about building, I know some of the "tricks" and can use them if needed. I feel that I can make a lot both visually appealing and functional with a fair amount of ease. I feel that I generally understand more about building lots than most beginners, but I wouldn't say I'm super awesome at it. Most people appreciate my work or tell me that it's good.
I love to build, building is basically what I do in TS3! I know ALL of the tricks and how to make some of the hardest builds. If you give me an idea, I can probably build it! Most people tell me that I'm a very good builder, and actually building is what I've become known for. I may actually be able to write a book about building!
Currently I plan to sort by use of CC, CAP, or "clean" (no cc or cap) but may break it down more if necessary, i.e. by use of EPs and SPs. If this thread goes good, I may also start one for sims. We shall see.
Finally, and I probably speak for all world builders who might use this thread...
Thank you! You have no idea how much time you've saved us by allowing us to use your lots in our worlds!
-just for the simple fact that we won't have to build every single lot (unless we want to), our worlds could be released MONTHS sooner than otherwise possible.
