Petlandia - Empty
A Base Game and Pets Only Neighborhood

#petstheme

Once upon a time, pets were magical creatures. (Some would say they still are.) They had healing properties, warded off evil spirits, and brought good luck and fortune to their fairy companions. Some Fairies rode dogs; others rode cats. The cat riding Fairies and the dog riding Fairies each lived on their own side of a great circular island with colorful birds, wiggling snakes, and clambering turtles. Neither fairy faction ventured into the other's territory. The Fairies quarreled because each group claimed their magic and animals were better. One day the Fairies had a magical duel to determine the matter once and for all - fairy dust flew everywhere! When the dust settled, the Fairies could hardly believe their eyes. Their island home had changed shape! They saw a dog and cat each sitting beside the other. The Fairies decided, if the cat and dog could get along and be together, so could they. Thereafter, all Fairies and pets shared the island they had re-named Petlandia equally and enjoyed good health and great fortune. Later they were joined on the island by unicorns, graceful and beautiful, and strong and purposeful horses. Everyone lived happily ever after on Petlandia.

Update 03/24/18! Some uneven lot edges in the dog's leg have been corrected. Players may wish to re-download the updated version of Petlandia - Empty. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Petlandia - Empty - In Game

Petlandia - Empty is the first phase of the second 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 there to lend a helping hand or appraising eye. If you love to build, check out our Mentoring for Builders group.

Watch for future uploads of Petlandia with all original Community and Residential lots, and specialty lots, built by M4BCreators members.If you are interested in helping to create lots for this world, or want to see how a world comes together, join us at: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=606803


Petlandia - Empty's Fishing Spot has fog emitter effects on the lot - waterfall and waterfall splash - so, as with all custom worlds, players may have to open the world, save the world, and then play the saved version to enjoy the effects.

Petlandia - Empty is NOT populated.

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


Lots:
44 lots total - 21 Community and 23 Residential. Most Community and Residential Lots can be interchanged in game as the player desires. A Fishing Spot and Beach are included. The Beach has only spawners. The Fishing Spot has a bathroom and spawners.

What an awesome job M4BCreators!! I've been playing with your new world since installing it yesterday and it is flawless. So many ways to play and I was amazed at the number of lots of all sizes available. Thank you for all your work you have been sharing and looking forward to your next creation.

what a cute, clean looking world. Perfect for a pet themed city! Thanks so much I love the little 'cat' and 'dog' heads on the island to blend in with the body too.

Looks awesome! I don't know how custom worlds work and I need to ask will there be stray pets, horses and deers roaming around?

Thanks for your question, DerpyTanuki! Yes, there is no way that I know of - unless there is a mod - to eliminate deer from a world/neighborhood which is not coded as a city - like Petlandia. (They might show up in cities, too. I can't remember at the moment.) This is coded into the game. In the Advanced Demographics setting in game options, you can uncheck horses and pets. I believe this will eliminate stray horses and pets from the world/neighborhood. Hope this helps!
