    Lol I always forget that place exists. But maybe I should do something with it.

    I need a spot for a vet clinic, so I can put one there. Another store could be a grocery store, selling fruits and vegetables. Does anyone know if that's possible in-game?

    @Gordy I’m not sure, but it sounds like it would work! Let us know if you do it, that’ll be fun to see.

    I ended up filling up MP with a café, restaurant, a combo bar/café, and a retail lot with three shops. Don’t know if I’m suuuper happy with it, but we’ll see!

    I’m really enjoying hearing what everyone did(or didn’t do haha, love the honesty) with MP! Thank you everyone who has responded so far! C:

    Basically a shopping center with stores and restaurants.

    I turned it into a performing arts school. Dorms, Music Production, Dancing & Singing, and Acting.

    In the file I'm playing right now, I just demolished The Roadstead to build my own shop. I might do the same to JF&S, but I'm keeping Paddywack's Emporium - where else am I going to get my space rocks from? (Apart from actually going to Sixam, that is.)

    I'm rebuilding it all right now, my plan is for a shopping mall/group of retail stores on the larger lot, then a cinema, bowling alley and a restaurant. Done the cinema and bowling alley so far. I think it works well as a community lot area really, plus I don't need more residential lots.

    I have Chez Llama there and a fancy resort hotel with a bar/lounge, salon, spa, retail shop, pool, and guest rooms on the biggest lot and I use LMS Resort and Hotel mod to make it a working hotel. Then on one smaller lots I have a Chanel store and on the other a high end bridal boutique. So it's sort of a Sims version of 5th Avenue in NYC or Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills CA, I guess.

    I'm using MP for community services. I have a Council House there, and a creative build, called Fun Factory. It contains a theatre, meet and greet area, small studios fror freelancers etc. Also planning a hotel, and have a big bakery/bank combo.

    It feels like a relief having one world with no residential lots, LOL

    Just checked with a convenience store I built in Sulani. It works.

    Sadly though, I can't sell Voidcritter booster packs in stores. Otherwise, I'd have a store based entirely around Voidcritters merch. But I keep a computer at the store lot, so my sims can order packs when they visit.

    @Gordy I actually made one as well after reading your original post! :> I've yet to play around with it yet, but I also installed a mod that overhauls cooking and includes and ingredient system so shopping for groceries makes more sense in-game.

    Its here if you feel like checking it out vv

    I have Le Petit Fee Restaurant, Hipster Gastro Pub, Sam N' Ella's Diner and Laughing Llama Rollerrama - so three restaurants ranging from dive, mid-range, to super fancy and a roller rink. I kind of wish there were more lots so I could make it a larger business district. I never used it with the original shops. I could never get the hang of retail in the game.
  • SummerStreakSummerStreak Posts: 117 Member
    @Cellardweller Same! Even just a couple of districts with 2-3 lots each, so I could make a cluster of restaurants/cafes, some retail lots, and a couple to do something different with.
    Heres to hoping for bigger future worlds!(Gotta love Windenburg, its huuuuge)
