I want to make a farm style lot with plants both harvestable and decorative as well as "farm" activities like beekeeping, bird feeders, pond, flower arranging, etc. Anyway I want the lot to be visitable by my sims and npcs, so when I go there it will look active. However Im not really sure what is the best lot type/lot traits to encourage sims to do appropriate activities. Basically the purpose of the lot would be to visit it during harvest fest especially to carve pumpkins and also in the summer for summer bbqs etc. Originally I was thinking of making it a Park or a National Park, however I dont think sims visit at least the national park very much. It could be a campsite or retail or whatever. Help me out and let me know what lot type and traits you would give to this lot in your game! FYI I have all eps, gps, and sps so go buck wild!
And since you'd probably want children to visit the lot as well, park is pretty much the only option, unless you're willing to go for library, but that doesn't seem suitable (as far as a know, children from unplayed/non-active households don't normally spawn on other types of lots). Unless you use Get Together and use the club system - in that case you could essentially pick any lot type.
As for lot traits, I'd definitly go for convivial, since it's intended for group outings and party place might be a good one too, although you can't host goaled events on holidays. Sunny aspect is one I often use for parks, but great soil would also be a good one since you want harvestables on you lot.
I love your ideas for lot traits and I totally put convivial on everything lol. Might have to give sunny aspect a try I like the random chance for different moodlets.
Absolutely! I will post on the gallery, my gallery ID is Jilly3ean is you wanna check out my other builds while Im working on this. This is part of a total game revamp for all the worlds so I will be uploading all those when Im done with everything.
Also sneak peak~ Complete with (unfinished) veggie and pumpkin patch, rare fishing hole, skating rink, flower arranging/pumpkin carving/handiness tables, ice skating rink... SO FAR!
