    Update July 2, 2020: I haven't built the marine research lab yet because I just wanted to play the world already! It's running pretty well, so I'll build the lab soon. In the meantime, here are some pictures from around the town....

    I needed the 40x40 lot where the original hospital was, so I removed it and I placed a smaller hospital to fit in the big park by the water fall. I really like it much better there!

    The college campus is working out well! Here are some students playing working on the Group Science Project!

    The student union across the street works! Here is a picture of the first day of the semester at the Meet & Greet:

    I took a picture of the town while my test sim was sleeping. Shh! Don't tell him!

    The plaza I built is working out pretty well too! Plenty of sims visiting the mall, shopping, dining, going to the movies, to the office building.

    Update June 14, 2020: I had always wanted to build an all-in-one lot with as many of the rabbitholes I can fit into a 64x64 lot. So while I was working on the college lot, I was also working on this idea. It's called Central Plaza Mall (maybe I'll think of a fancier name later), a commercial plaza that has the bookstore, grocery, cinema, office building, spa, bistro and diner.

    Main area. The little building between the diner and the bistro is a comfort room.

    Other side of the plaza.

    It is placed where the central park was located:

      This is awesome! I play a small world in Sims 3 with 2 64x64 lots and I also combine venues.

      Thanks! I really love Rflong7/13's works! I wanted to try out her smaller worlds and this world is perfect for the story that I want to play out! I like combining venues too, but this is the biggest lot with the most rabbitholes I've ever tried. Next one (not now, but someday), I might one to try to combine different types of stores for a shopping mall!

    Update June 12, 2020: I wrote a simple description for the college:
    SU, Isle of Sims III Campus

    Sims University has just opened a campus in Isle of Sims III!


    I also made a few changes to the stadium area. I didn't like how the climbing walls were just sitting there in the middle of the field so I integrated them into the actual structure of the building. It looks much better that way! And I have a lot more room in the field. I brought out one of the basketball courts from inside to the field, so I had room to add a trampoline indoors.

    Screenshot-8.jpg


    Then, I switched over into night mode to see if there are any dark areas that needed light. I totally forgot about the parking area! I remember taking some classes at night and I always parked where there were plenty of cars and plenty of lights!

    More to come!

    Update June 9, 2020: I decided that I want Emily to go to college. As a marine biologist, it's more realistic that she goes to college and earn a degree to become one. I want to be able to continue exploring Isle of Sims III while she studies though, so I've placed down a college lot. I wanted it to have the Group Science Project, so I located it in a 64x64 lot, moved all the parking spaces to the left side to make room for it. I also enlarged the gym to add basketball courts inside and climbing walls outside. Here is the final result:

    The college is placed where the Hoi Palloi Event Center used to be:

    I downloaded the college from Mod the Sims. The original lot:
