60x60 lot in Twinbrook?
« on: July 10, 2010, 10:10:41 PM »
Does anyone know if there is a 60x60 lot in Twinbrook that costs 14,700 simoleons? Basically, is it possible to do Pinstar's legay in Twinbrook, if you're following the rules by the book? I've searched for one, but couldn't find it, but it's always possible I didn't look hard enough or just overlooked it. Thanks!

I remember the same day I installed Ambitions I immediately fired up a Twinbrook game and that's one thing I noticed — no enormous lot.

I think I read somewhere that to play Pinstar's legacy in Twinbrook, you have to dispose of your money in other ways.  I'd suggest buying something and leaving it in your family inventory untouched for the duration of the legacy.

I thought one of the things they added with Ambitions was the ability to add new lots to the town?  I haven't tried it out so I have no idea how to do it.  Is that the World Editor thing people keep talking about?

Yes, we've got the World Editor now.  I don't know if it will add a 60 x 60 lot, though.  And I don't know how they get priced.  When I toyed with it, I was able to lay down a new lot, but I don't think I could set the price.

If you go to "Edit Town" from your active family, you can place a lot any size you want. I don't remember the specifics, but you're smart, figure it out. :P

But it can be done from "edit town" some how. I did it about a week ago... I just don't remember how, exactly, because I was just messing around.

Edit Town is where you find the button for the World Editor.

Ah, yes! Sorry I was confusing "Edit World" with "Create a World." My apologies to all.

And thanks Pam! I've been using this website to get any and all information I've needed about sims 3 since I got it... I just never made an account because... well, I didn't need one before. :)

Do you use the Guide portion, too?

Ja, it's the primary resource I have used. When wondering about which widgets to make, where to go first when I got world adventures...

It's very helpful.

There's not.  Check in the Pinstar legacy thread over on the official forums.  I saw multiple workarounds listed for using Twinbrook with that particular legacy.  But like Pam said, the basic idea is to just pick a lot and dispose of your money in others ways.

Is there 60x60 lot that you could delete the existing house from and use that?

Ah okay, thanks for the answer. When you put down a lot, it's not always the price you want. I'm guessing the price of a lot depends on where it is when you place it down? Also, where would the best place to put a large lot down in twinbrook? I've noticed the nicer part of town is sort of hilly.

So build on a hill.   Makes it fun for home building...walk out basement or raised porches.  Use those columns that we have now.  :D

Good idea, however I would have to experiment with building on non-flat terrain beforehand. I've never been a great home builder, so building a house on a hill would be an even greater challenge.

Think of it as an added bonus to your legacy challenge.  :D

Personally I like to start building right in the middle of a hill, so some of the house is in the hill, and some is sticking out in a grand porch.  I find starting at the top gives you some crazy porches/decks, but almost a bit silly looking, same with building into the hill.... though the choice is yours.

Though now that you've been talking about it, I want to give it a try myself!!  :D

Talking about hilly terrain. Can someone clue me into the secret of the pilings on the island lots?  I can't seem to duplicate those.

It's starting to get off topic here.  If you all want to discuss building techniques, please start a new thread on the Building and Construction board, or use one of the existing topics.  Thanks!  :)

Sorry Pam... think of not as off topic.. more as a slight detour... a pitstop even.  :D

Anyways I've looked all over Twinbrooks, and the 60x60 lots are only 7,200 simoleons... (except for central park, which is a bit more... incase you want to blow it up.)  And any large lot I stick down is the same price, so you'd have to buy it the waste the rest of the money on something else.
