About testing/final version: as we didn't track who tested what, maybe we should state which lots each of us tested? So we can see which ones still need to be checked before you make a new (possibly final) version, SimmyRN?

Square Hamster ceiling: If it was my lot I would paint the ceiling everywhere, not only in some rooms. Or not at all.

Community Garden: deer and wild horses will eat a lot. But I agree, a fence would take away too much. So let them prosper, too. It's a pet town, after all.

Pictures: Make the image format as it suits you. Imo it should just be conistent within one post. Also, that one picture that is required, street view, is (in many cases) not very helpful. As there are no restrictions I'd say everything from 3 to 12. For parks there is maybe not that much to show, so some nice impressions would be enough.

Up and Down Stables



If you don't learn riding and horse jumping here you won't learn it anywhere. It's a bit of up and down, you know. But once you mastered the staying up you'll manage the rest in no time for sure.

The horse ranch features a racing track and a jumping course. The barn offers two stables for horses, a fully accessible hayloft and a little room for storage where you can sit and have a coffee or a hotdog. Parking space and restroom are available.

Lot type: community (Horse Ranch)
Lot Size: 40 x 40
Lot Price Unfurnished: 24090
Lot Price Furnished: 43659

The horse ranch is available as separate download on MTS here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=607733

The pics are great There's no pic of of one of the bedrooms though, is that intentional? (Not complaining, the pics do show the whole house.)

Default Petlandia Village - A Fairy Tail Village by M4BCreators
After the fairies’ magical duel, everyone flourished in Petlandia. Some say it’s still a magical place to live where Petlandiers care for pets of all kinds. Petlandia residents built a village with homes, a school, and businesses. Talented crafters paid special attention to areas for pets and their families. Some ancient dwellings remain even today. Will your sims and their pets live happily ever after in Petlandia Village?

Petlandia Village is a quaint place with everything Petlandiers need - a civic center, hometown hospital and research center, shops, businesses, a village school, and plenty of family and pet friendly homes of many sizes. A number of homes are starter priced. There are even some apartments.

Petlandia Village was a collaborative effort by M4BCreators. The village and lots were built with base game, Pets EP, and free Store items only. It has no CC or items from other EPs or stuff packs. Many of the roads and sidewalks are "grass" to help maintain the look of the cat's and dog's "collars" and the cat's "stripes". The fishing spot is in the dog's ear and the beach is at the tip of the cat's tail. Routing should accommodate wild horses. Or, players can turn off wild horses in game options.

All Petlandia Village lots were built or revised by M4BCreators specifically for the village. Watch for future uploads of specialty expansion pack lots built by members especially for Petlandia Village.

Petlandia Village is the latest group project by M4BCreators, a collection of simmers who build in TS2, TS3, and TS4. Group members include novice builders, experienced builders, and everything in between. We share WIPs, tricks and techniques, and are here to lend a helping hand or appraising eye. If you love to build, check out our group: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=587151.

Petlandia Village in Game
Petlandia Village with Lot Designations

  • Map Size: Medium (1024x1024) with a smallish land mass, 38.5 MB.
  • Spawn Points on Map: Base game – Beetle, Butterfly, Gem - Epic, Meteor, Seeds; Pets -- Dog Dig Spot, Large Bird, Lizard, Rodent, Small Bird, Snake. Remaining base game and Pets spawn points are located on lots.
  • Effects: Flock of Birds, Flying Geese, Flying Seagulls, Meteor Shower, Ocean Surf and Waves, Sailboat.
  • Routing Info: Some additional sidewalks and streetlamps have been added to the Petlandia Village map. Sims cannot route up or down sides of the island or in valleys. Isolated routing "nodes" were eliminated to avoid "stuck" sims. The camera can go anywhere. There are no “hidden” spots in Petlandia Village.
  • Layering: 8 layers - Objects, Trees & Flora, Lots, Spawners, Effects, Auto soils. Global layer cleaned.
  • Textures: 16 textures total used with all being in-game textures. There are likely more than 8 textures per chunk in Petlandia Village but it does not appear to have affected performance.
Petlandia Village’s Fishing Spot has fog emitter effects on the lot – waterfall and waterfall splash – so, as with all custom worlds, players will have to open the world, save the world, and then play the saved version to enjoy the effects.

Petlandia Village is NOT populated.

There is no Custom Content in Petlandia Village. (World checked with CUSTARD.) Care was taken to use only base game and Pets items.


Petlandia Village Lots:
44 lots total - 24 Residential & 20 Community.

Sorry to take so long. Above is my proposal for the upload overview and two residential lots - Dog Dazed Cottage by daisylee and The Towers Apartments Studio by me. Do you think I need to add a note about the deer/horses/zombies (if players have Supernatural) devouring the plants in the Zen Garden? (After a couple of days, it was cleaned out in my game!) Does anyone see anything else that needs to be added/edited?

I have play tested a number of lots that were listed as not tested without any issues so, as far as I know, no further testing needs to be done.

If everyone can edit their posts to remove any superfluous comments, etc., I'm hopeful we can get a moderator to use this thread - putting the posts in the correct order - for the upload so that we don't have to redo everything. Thanks very much, Norn, for the lovely general screenshots! I've done it just like that before to give an overview of the map. We can have one more inline picture in the description. Is there a screenshot in particular you would like to add?

It looks like there might be a couple lots/screenshots that still need to be posted. Is that right? Thanks, everyone, so much for all your work!

Edit: I discovered a missing floor tile on the hospital lot and a typo in the description for the gym so I have corrected those. Any other final corrections?

Posted by Norn:
Redacted selection of my screenshots of the two threads (including the restored post in this one) and some new ones. Feel free to use any or none, SimmyRN! The final choice is yours. Maybe someone else has some screenshots as well.

My suggestion would be to use # 01-06, 08, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17-20, 30, 32, 35, 38, 41.

The majority of screenshots should be attached to the first post of the CI thread so that they will show up on the download page.
