Sooooo... last night I decided to try my hand an rebuilding some of the community lots that came with Late Night. I love a club called Aquarius but it has an indoor pool on the top floor of a building and I have no idea how to do that in TS2 so I decided to remake Waylon's Haunt, a dive bar, instead. Since I suck at landscaping the lot is absolutely bare on the outside. It's like that in TS3 anyway - down an alley, with a decorative empty lot on the side. I might have to get the Lot Expander or whatever it's called and shrink the sides. Or I might leave it as is so that people can add their personal touch in the side areas. Up to YOU what you do with the outside. The inside is a fairly faithful recreation of the bar you saw in this entry. And in this one. [info]selenaq13 did a different and totally fantastic rendition of this lot and you can find it here.

Here it my version:



Except for a couple of outside shots, all pics were taken at night while sims were using the bar. So you know it's been play-tested and it works! It also shows the amount of light you get in there at night, which for some reason I think is important.

















It was impossible to recreate the coloured lights that come with TS3. I did the best I could to match the TS2 decor to the TS3 original. All the paintings on the walls are thematically the same/similar to the ones in the original bar. I made the stage area a couple of squares wider because the TS2 instruments have a larger footprint than their TS3 counterparts. I added the photobooth and snack machines because otherwise there is nowhere to eat. Or "take a photo".

Name: Waylon's Haunt
Lot size: 3x2
Lot type: Community
CC: None!
Compatibility: I have all EPs and SPs so please use Clean Installer to install.
What you need to play: All EP's + Mansions and Gardens SP. I used a mirror from IKEA in the bathrooms but if you don't have it, just install using CI and then replace the mirrors.

I know it's not as pretty as it could be but I wanted to keep the lot CC-free and make it playable. My sim encountered no road blocks, was able to use all items and, most important of all, had fun. So it's functional and doesn't look too horrible either. There is plenty for sims to do and there is room outside for you to add play equipment or a BBQ area.

I love it!
This was actually the first bar my simself entered in S3 when I got Nightlife this weekend.
Now she's an fivestar elder world renowned director with an fourstar adult daughter named Mathilda.
Mathilda's father was Matthew Hamming, fivestar celebrity. He died at the respectable age of 97.
My simself just started a golden years relationship with Barry Tenderlove after he became widowed.
I love Nightlife! :)
