Where do you find this City Hall (small) 33x22 one in the game? I did't recall seeing a city hall that small..

If you're building custom rabbit holes, with the rabbit hole buildings in the basement, you can, by using moveobjects on. Place stairs down and wa-la!

Test really well with sims. I had one with the Hospital and sims could go down, and not up for some reason. Half the town was trapped down there.

I thought Ambitions added actual playable building types, not rabbitholes...

Well, some got changed, didn't they? E. g. the diner is smaller, but hm... why don't you just check yourself, Menaceman44? Someone will need to count.

I play Sims in German, so I apologize in advance for any "funny/wrong English term" I might use when describing something about the game. ;)

Thanks for posting that Nadinz, very useful.
I haven't got Late Night yet and sort of suspected from reading the response to it in the Sims 3 discussion section that the night spots are quite large in size. The dimensions you posted confirm that. Honestly, what is wrong with a nightspot 30 x 30 and less? I prefer my social comm lots to be realistically close together (and smaller) to encourage more sims to congregate. Guess I'll have to get off my lazy butt and build my own clubs.

If you have CAW you can build the lots really close with a sidewalk in the middle of each lot (thats what i do) in that way i create a "busy" town with alot of buildings If youre going to create a new world with buildings close to each other make the lots as the sizes i posted for the buildings you want etc, you know what i mean!

Yeah, I guess I'm just being lazy and hoping that those Late Night comm lots could just be dumped into my world.

But I usually end up creating my own clubs in TS2 for example anyway.. eventually I'll get round to doing it in TS3.

Some Late Night ones are still missing though.

Boogabear, you can add lots of any size in CAW (up to 64X64), but if you want custom lot sizes available in World Editor then you need this:

I've been waiting for Pets to come out to add some new rabbit holes to a world I'm working on. I needed the sizes so I thought I would share my findings.

*These are based on the rabbit hole itself, I tried to take things like overhangs and flags into account. First number is the entrance side. You'll need a bigger lot to make it look nice =)

Appaloosa Plains Civic Center (City hall) - 31x21
Crestview School and Stadium - 56x31
Darris Teeter Art Theater - 21x30
Darris Teeter Grocery & the Koffi Cafe - 23x18 (grocery+diner)
Hueber Associates & Kim Gould's Steakhouse - 31x30 (business+restaurant)
JRA International Equestrian Center - 54x35
Petite Pony Equestrian Center - 35x35
Wolfson's Hospital and Research Facility - 33x33 (Hospital+science, corner entrance)


Items with own footprint:
Rustler's Den 17x12 (crime)
Walls' Book 'n Bath LLC 17x17 (bookstore+spa, corner entrance)
Butterfield family mausoleum - 7x8
Waylon's Water Tower - 18x18


There you go! Totally jealous of the criminal warehouse being from "Sudden Valley," was thinking of naming my world that in an homage to Arrested Development

Thanks a ton! Trying to finish a world that was delayed due to the CAW issues (and a delay in getting Generations), and holding off installing Pets till it's placed in game. This list will be SO helpful in making sure I leave spaces for these new buildings. Any idea for the Pet Store that came with the limited edition, or is it not a rabbithole?

The pet store isn't a rabbit hole so you don't need to worry about that. It's just a prebuilt lot. I believe it is 20x30 if you do want to leave a lot for it.

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for! Just want to be sure I leave a space. Installing this world before Pets, just in case CAW goes bonkers on me, and want to be sure I have room. Much appreciated! :D
