Question about multiple Salons, Firestations etc lots?

Hi there,

sorry if there are threads out there similar to this one...but I don't seem to find any answer to this.

Anyways..I am creating a rather large town and I want to build a few local salons in each sub neighborhood. I am wondering will all salons and stuff work properly? Has anyone tried building multiple salons and fire stations in their worlds?

Thanks and I appreciate your help :)

    Hi :)

    I actually haven't built more than one in a world, so I'm no help- I'm sure there are players who've done it. Why not test it and let the rest of us know how it works- that'd be wonderful to know. :D

The exception to this is City Hall, I heard that you cannot have two of those (but I've not tried myself).

    Rabbitholes, yes- but is that the same as the question asked?

    Hi!

    In my worlds Metropoli and Pretoria (both large cities) there are two or even more of almost all RH and other carreer lots and venues (salon, fire station, Library etc...) and they work fine and you can choose in which of them your sim will work if they have a name to identify or you send the sim to the lot to get the work. I think you can even choose the school sending your kids to have extra schoolar activities to a certain school but I have not tested this. When there is an oportunity offered your sim is directed to go to one RH or the other o both ramdonly. I have had never two city halls so it is the one I can´t tell if it is ok to have more than one.

    Happy simming

    Maybe I didn't use the most appropriate quote but the topic also "talks" about firestations. I think it's an informative topic, and it is the only information I have inside of my mind that came close to the question, that's why I thought I would share it. So jae12kae can read the whole topic.

    I have tested multiple career lots and rh's and have no issues at all. Which comes in handy in really big worlds. In fact in fire departments it actually seems better to have multiple FD's if the world is really big. Which ever career lot you start your sim to work at it the one they will work at but it is easy to change where they work if you need to because you moved them nearer a different career building. On the day they need to go to work, click on the go to work button and click on the closer career building. The game will ask you if your sim wants to change to that RH or career lot for work - just say yes. And then they will go to work at the closer lot.

    To change a kids school, click on the school of choice and click the after school activities for your kid. That will tie that kid to that school. You can pick the restaurant of choice for sims to be chefs at just by clicking on the go to work at which ever place they need to work at - other wise the game will pick the default bistro.

    I do that for all the buildings with careers or jobs so my sim go where I want them to go. But multiples don't have a problem as long as you give each one it's own name. Do not use multiples with the same name even if they are the same building - change the names.


    ETA _ Just to correct one thing do not use multiples of the City Hall though as that is the main building and considered the heart of every town - It is the center of all the programming - so there can only be just one of those or the AI gets confused and may crash or cause a lot of freezing. But all the rest work fine in multiples.
