All in this thread has help greatly. I love the sims so much that I thought to start building there world from scrap. As I was working with the tool I had a hard time getting the buildings to go in the lot areas. It would say "Location out of bounds". Frustrated as I was I decide to search for answers. I thought maybe it was just the size. Given that I decided to search for size of lots. On here lots of helpful sizes. Try it but never worked. I thought we could use a little bigger lots not the same exact size of the lot. I looked on here for sizes and I saw others had the same problem with place building to lots due to "Location out of bounds". I didnt think we had to use a cheat code just to place a lot but I guess that is the only way to do this if I want Rabbieholes in my game. GREAT HELP INDEED FOR WORLD BUILDING. Just wanted to say thanks. And wandered if there is other new buildings for all the games. I think this thread stopped at Late night. The latest is Katy Perry.

You can, of course, make the lot bigger to add more decorations and/or landscaping.

On the list are not only the rabbit holes but also decorative buildings that can be found in the same category in "edit in game". You might not have all the buildings on the list if you haven't downloaded Riverview or have WA installed.

I need help. I started making a world today and I can't find any of the rabbitholes such as: the day spa, grocery store, stadium, etc. None of them are anywhere. Is there something I can do to find them or will I need to download them?

The rabbit holes are all available in Build mode on community lots only.
The icon for them looks a bit like a shop front. I think it is labeled "community objects".

using caw as a environment creator, per big white squire as that is all the hard drive is thinking about . so as how much yellow and red u use for layerthinking as the sim proses of hand to thought and ability changes per big white square, to free space allowing freer growth possibility / posable content need ed per layer. as well as resizing see caw if u dint like the world description play/sim attention span. much of this is worked out with mod the sim bare minimum pc ability , as sharing is posable when uploading create? right? lol i cant think this any smaller ,or u will never see it. utilizing space with out redundancy. what ever , thank u.

I assume you are not a native English speaker, tretjess? I find it difficult to know what you are asking.
I will try to answer your first question.
A rabbit hole is a community lot building that Sims can enter to work at or take skill classes but the player cannot see inside. Sometimes opportunities happen at these rabbit holes but some opportunies do not need a rabbit hole. Rabbit holes and opportunities are not the same thing.
The lot sizes given in this thread are the smallest lot sizes you need to be able to put these rabbit holes on them. You can have bigger lot sizes for these rabbit holes if you like.

Most, up until Late Night, are available in a table on the wiki found here> http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title...bbit_Hole_Sizes
It's not been updated for a while though.

I'm working to update it. It would be separated from Comm Lots.

I'm probably OCD'ing and obsessing on it too much. It's now gotten quite complicated, but I like that I can get different views of it. Let me transfer the stuff over from my local copy and then I'll publish the wiki links.

Will update actual building sizes (not just the lots) when I have the time to place just the buildings. Might be a while, there's sun outside.... :p

If you have Luna Lakes you can place the community lots from that world via your build mode onto a 30 x 30 lot, rename it, and build your own building around it, it works, I created a new world in CAW, set out my 30 x 30 lots, went into in game mode and placed the Luna Lakes community lots onto my created lots, renamed them and then built my own buildings around them and then exported the world and installed it into my game and tried it out, everything worked OK.

Is there an update to the minimum lot sizes for rabbit holes? I've tried placing the base game hospital in a 30x40 lot, which according to the requirements in the first post, is more than enough space. Are those lot sizes the minimum size that allow placement of rabbit holes without using the move objects cheat?
