Town Life Stuff Pack Guide

A Review with Lists of Game Objects and Clothing

by Norma Blackburn (Twinmum)

Town Life Stuff is about getting your Sims out of the house and into town. The main part of this stuff pack is the seven new lots to add to your town. Three rabbit holes, a school, grocer and diner, plus 4 full lots, a park, a library, a laundry and a gym. These lots also add 35 buyable objects plus 5 build items.

There are a few items of clothing and a couple of hairstyles, but the main focus of this pack is certainly the community lots.

Par Excellence Preparatory School (rabbit hole) - 30 X 40 lot

Fresh and Frozen Express Grocer (rabbit hole) - 30 x 20 lot

Scrumptious Nibbles Cafe (rabbit hole) - 30 x 20 lot

Why are they called rabbit-holes?
Because your Sim walks in and you can't watch.

Great guide, but it's missing the clothes and hairstyles for children that this pack came with.

Hi Carl,
I've been using this site so much in these years I thought I could share some helpful info :) turns out this stuff pack is free these anniversary days. User Annasommer at the Sims3 forum wrote "If you have origin installed, you can get the Town Life stuff pack for free!

Check here: ". It might take a while for the game to show up though. HTH!
Thank you for sharing it with our readers, I'm sure some people got to take advantage who would not have otherwise. Our Forum is a good place to watch for things like that, as someone in the Community usually comes out with the info to make everyone else aware.

I'm confused with the Laundry aspect. With what stuff/expansion pack did it first come with? Or is it this one? I don't know I'm just confused...

Laundry first came out in Ambitions EP, with the washing machine, dryer, etc. when University EP came out it came with a new washing machine and dryer. I guess with Town Life SP it gives you new laundry stuff, even if you don't have Ambitions or University EP. Yeah, don't worry, I was confused by this too, it took me a while to figure it out.

How do I put the new venues in the game? I installed the Town Life Stuff but the buildings aren't there, yet with the actually collection stuff in build mode.

Carl says...
Go to the game menu (...) and choose Edit Town, then go to community lots in the main interface (far right tab) from there you can place lots from any EP or SP you own into your current world.

I only have the base game, then I recently downloaded the free Town Life SP. When I install the Town Life SP, it tells me I'll need to do an update before I can play, but it wont even let the launcher load, and I already have the latest patch from Jan 2014.
The SP wont install properly, and then Sims 3 wont load at all.
Any suggestions on how to get the SP to load properly?

Lisa says...
Thanks! According to EA s description of the ep you can build a small library in your home. I find no more info when searching. I want to know how to build this library/study (is it just placing the book shelfs) and most important if that will give the moodlet "power study".
