Isla Paradisio needs some nightlife! I created a Live Show Venue on the water. It includes a food vendor, tables, a few games and chess tables, a photo booth (I love those), and fishing spawners.

Available here:

It's a 50x50 lot across the by from the Science Center.

Visit the Nautelis's Garden Show Venue today!

That looks great! I just redid the park for showtime and have made a coffeehouse next door to the bar and bowling I did.

Nice Coffee House! It looks like it would fit into lots of towns, too.

Have anyone been able to make a working big venue? I heard rumours it didn't work much earlier some time. I have the stadium as well, but I have made an opera and can't make it work as big stage, only live performance showtime. It has to be something with the zoning as it's working as a different zone.

I'm not sure, but I think the "big" venue is a semi-rabbithole and needs a specific shell?

Well there is a BIG performance area and a huge audience object in BUYDEBUG, so I think you can create one. The all in one venue thingy is a lot you got with Starlight Shores. I think you can build your own. Check the downloads at the Sims 3 site.

Yes, I have done it and I am sure LoCat has too. You need to get the proprietor placement from MTS and place it outside the building. I have done 2 and my sim Yvonne performed at the one in Spider that I did.

Smile

And yes, the zoning has to be a big venue and you probably have to use the big stage designed for the big venue. You do not have to use the EA shell.

Why does the proprietor have to be outside? Or does he?

He has to be outside as a sim has no access to the building until given a gig, as I recall. So you cannot summon him to get a gig if he is inside. Place him outside and you can get to him to audition to get a gig.

It is like a sim cannot just walk into an EA big venue. EA uses a special door as I recall which can be used to summon the proprietor.

thumbs up That's why she can't enter it. Thank you, that solved the thing. I'll have to make it a regular stage something then while testing it Smile

Can I give my Sim top entertainer level with Mastercontroller so she can test it as is? Why do I make this wonderful building if the Sims can't enter it hmm

Yes, you can use MC to set your Sim to level 10 of any career. You can do what I did, thanks to a suggestion from LoCat. I removed two wall tiles from the front of the building and placed columns either side. Sims can enter the building then because the game sees it as still outside. They can use the lobby and interact with the proprietor in the lobby.

What kind of a lobby did you have then? I have the stage on the other side of cause, and the lobby is where you would enter to find your seats. I guess that's the usual way? Then I have the lobby before you go in to find your seat. I have a door there between the lobby and the ... what do you call it? the theater itself probably? Because of the way lights travel in this game, and in real life, I guess you had a door into the theater as well. Then the proprietor is in the lobby? I have to tear down a fabulous door to do that, I love those doors from IP. A completely useless arguement of cause Laughing

Solved: I found, or someone found it for me on the WCIF forum at mts: http://modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=3390100&postcount=3

I'm glad you solved it. There is a pic of my lobby in the last post on this page here.

I am glad you found the proprietor placement. That is also a good idea to just leave the building partly open.

I was mostly thinking about the audience and how would that be on something that would almost be a rabbithole then? Am I furnishing this with a ballet bar and dance floor in vain? Perhaps I can just forget about the zoning all together? Just make it a Live show venue for now and then let the players change it to big show if they need it?

When my sims performed at the big venues they got there right before the shows and I think automatically left right after them. I do not recall that they would hang around after the show. Unless you leave an opening none of the sims in town will have access to the other areas when there are no shows. I think that zoning as something else might be a better option if you want more use of the building, or leave the dance floor and ballet bar and so on out and use elsewhere with easy access. I have added the ballet bars at the gyms and I have dance floors all over town, so in my case, did not need the big venues to have additional activities.

Thank you for the input BigHug  Then I'll just check how it works with changing the zoning when the player needs a big venue. I will have quite a few show venues then, but I may find some other options Smile

I like having quite a few show venues in towns as it make it more interesting to me for when my sims perform and also when my sims attend simfests. I like the variety, just as I like a lot of nightspots in town for sims to go to when wanted.
