Once you have packaged a building, in this case residential, does anyone
know how to use Simpe to change the specs to community?

I have developed a GWR station I was going to use as a refurbished home but
would rather like it in my Edwardian neighbourhood - although it is a mite
late for that age. 8(

Upload it to The Sims official site and then download it into the new
community?

I don't upload. Dialup is toooo slow and crashes out.
Hold on.... Will a building once set as residential be available in the
community? if so, then it should do that from hard drive. it's the same
package after all.

No, it won't.

Ar. I think perhaps you might have been thinking I wanted to change
neighbourhoods? That's easy, as you said, package it and load it in again.
No, what i was looking for is changing a whole lot from residential, to one
where all the Sims can use. Community, in the same neighbourhood,

I have just been notified that someone has already done a disused train
station as a shop. NOW they tell me!!!!
Ah. But mine is GWR. Their station looks more like Southern.
Hoity-toity!! 8))))

I have done it, though I haven't test-run it with visiting Sims yet as there
is nothing in there to test. 8(
According to my notes, I did do...
Simpe, plugin 'neighbourhood browser'
Find 'lot description'; 'Packed file type'; plugin view
Presents box 'Lot inst.... & House inst. and a Lot type which can be changed
to residential, community or 'don't know.'

A bit vague that but it's quite straight forward. So now I can set up crummy
terraces as heritage museums, if I want. All I need is a fish and chip shop.

Glad you got that sorted.

pond. Miss a good fish and chips, but not the zits...

I think Carrigon's tutorial has a bit on this - but I can't remember her
home page

I actually woke up this morning looking down on a Sim area from a canal
bridge. I am wondering if it is possible to build a tunnel.

I could certainly drop the land and make cut sides, then add the general
detrius that teenagers would like, but the mouth of a tunnel might present
problems.
So far i haven't tried it. I wish I could forget about it, actually.

You can build a bridge and then just do some good decorating with plants and
stuff.
Check out this place.........

If you haven't checked any of his tutorials out, you are gonna be amazed
what can be done in the game.

The road, with the telephone on, would be the top of the bridge, if you see
what i mean. Looking over it, down to a canal running under.
Extending the edge of the road/bridge forwards into the plot would give room
enough to experiment with a tunnel effect. False roof using the boolprop
building thing is my best bet. it need not be deep. Just enough to give the
effect of the canal going somewhere else.

As far as the Sims are concerned the important bits would be the old sofa,
the radio, and whatever else I decide to dump next to the tow path.

Look, I didn;t want to be bothered with this!!!

I have seen his stuff and it is impressive. I don;t go for altered roofs
because you don;t see them when you play, anyway. Nice in neighbourhood view
and with photos, but...
Like that damn Psycho House. more trouble than it was worth, as far as I was
concerned.
Incidentally, the latest crop of Mephistophelian children, teenager and
girl-child, have started taking their homework in there instead of nice
custodian house with modern study.
The BRATS!
