The artificial island project was successful and Simmington gradually turned into an "entertainment" destination for other inhabitants of Simplanet. Many came to enjoy the shows and atmosphere. Some even decided to stay. Simmington was renamed "Simmington Showtime".
Simmington Showtime has been updated with Showtime Coffeehouse, Live Show, Private, and Big Show venues. The world ID number has been changed so that players can have both versions of Simmington in their game.
Simmington Showtime includes several fog emitter effects on lots - spirit lights, pigeons, and fireflies - so, as with all custom worlds, players will have to open the world, save the world, and then play the saved version to enjoy the effects.
Simmington Showtime is set as a city with Bridgeport water and skies. Simmington Showtime is NOT populated.
There is no custom content in Simmington Showtime. World checked with CUSTARD.
Simmington Showtime requires the following expansions: World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Pets, and Showtime. It may work without some expansions but could look different. Showtime is absolutely required for this world. Late Night is required for bars, subways, street lights, and apartments. The Pets City Hall Rabbit hole was used. Seasons is required for those who choose to download the alternate "Festival Grounds at the Cannery" community Festival Grounds lot.
Changes made for Simmington Showtime:
1. Replaced "Simmington City Center" with Big Show Venue and Stadium.
2. Eliminated "Carmine Exclusive Lounge" and part of School Street to allow for larger school lot. Replaced "Pleasant Education Center" with new school lot.
3. Turned "Luxury Blue and Gold Starter Apartments" around, re-decorated lots, and assigned new street addresses.
4. Replaced "Open Lot" with gym.
5. Eliminated "Ready & Set Laundry Store (No CC)" and re-sized lot. Laundromat replaced with Private Venue. (Alternate community or residential lots available.)
6. Replaced "Palms Futuristic Lounge" with Live Show Venue.
7. Eliminated "Vista Alegre Gym" and re-sized lot. Gym replaced with Coffeehouse lot. (Alternate residential or Seasons Festival lots available.)
8. Eliminated "Madison Park | A Fountain Park" and re-sized hospital lot. Replaced hospital with combination hospital and science center Rabbit hole.
9. Replaced "Simmington Research Center" with City Hall Rabbit hole.
10. Changed "Pet World" (Pet Store) into a dive bar and re-named it.
11. Replaced "Glenview Manor" apartment building with Movie Cineplex Rabbit hole.
12. Replaced "The Glass Pillar" apartment building with bookstore and spa Rabbit hole. Little Corsican Bistro Rabbit hole placed in basement.
13. Replaced "Into the Future" single family dwelling with dive bar.
14. Replaced "Subway Station" with single family dwelling.
15. Changed "Garden of Eden" from Small Park to Big Park. (Enables Showtime performances.)
16. Added Food Truck to Landgraab Industries Bldg. lot.
17. Added and/or re-arranged subway grates, street lights, and street signs.
18. Moved azaleas near "Fire Pit Park".
19. Made minor changes to "Research Center Robo Reservoir" lot (moved rock and weed).
20. Added sims non-routing paint under fences between Simmington Family Fitness, Garden of Eden, and Curious Tower.
21. Removed duplicate spawners at Cool Breeze and Garden of Eden.
22. Moved garbage cans at Sweet Condo Delux, 10x10 Modern Apartment, and Curious Tower.

Many thanks to simsample and other MTS members for the tutorials making a world a city and Sea, Sky, and Light parameters - let's learn!
simsample unlocking the Food Truck and Parking Space was very helpful.
Thank you, Winterhart, for these mods: Generations Cars Buyable & Available for Community Lots and Cars for Community Lots.
A big thank you to simsample for the Tutorial: Creating Duplicates of a World which allows players to have both Simmingtons in their game!
Most suggestions made by lindali365 were implemented. Thanks so much for play testing for me!
I so much appreciate each and every person who has uploaded lots and other items to MTS as well as those who have contributed to the CAW Resources thread! Where would our (custom) worlds be without you?
Thank you, also, to the staff and moderators at MTS who manage the best Sims 3 web site I've found! Especially HugeLunatic who cleaned up my creator feedback thread for me so that I didn't have to "re-do" it to submit the upload!

Expansion / Stuff Packs Required
You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed above installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
You need to be a Registered Member to be able to download from MTS. Registration allows you to thank and leave comments for the creators, see your download history, participate in the discussions and much more!
1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.
For Package files:
1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
For Sims3Pack files:
1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
