Sims 3 Functional Community Lot School
Today I'm going to share a functional non rabbit-hole Sims 3 school which I built a month ago.Now you can actually see your Sims attending classes and participating in various activities in the school.Also,if your Sims are in the education career they can take classes at the school as a part of their job activities.This school lot functions as the elementary school for children,the high school for teens and the workplace for the Sims in education career.And it's all possible because of Zerbu's ultimate career mod,many thanks to him for creating such a great mod.Here is also some tips about getting the mod work on nrass wikispaces.I'm explaining how the school functions and how your Sims will gain school performance in this school with pictures below.[The download link to my school is at the end of this post.]

 Install Instructions:

  • All the cc and mods are packed with the download file except zerbu's ultimate career mod which you need to download from here.
  • This school lot works both with or without the zerbu's mod but the fact is that if you use zerbu's mod all the classroom will be functional as described above and if you do not wish to use that mod your Sims will disappear behind the rabbit hole door as usual they do with ea school.
  • Sims 3 university expansion required because I largely used the objects of this expansion on this lot.
  • I've attached a document fully explaining how to get the school work with the zerbu's ultimate career mod with install instruction to the download file.
  • The download file is a compressed file you may need 7zip to extract it.Please feel free to ask questions or tell problems about this download in the comments.

I've been addicted to The Sims series games since the release of Sims 1.My all time favorite is Sims 3 though currently enjoying Sims 4.Besides playing the Sims 4 I love to create custom contents for it,in fact creating custom content for Sims 4 has become my new addiction.

    1. This lot will be functional on your mac.But if you want to see and control your child and teen sims attending classes at this school community lot rather than disappearing in the school rabbithole,you need to install this mod first in your sims 3:http://zerbu.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/ultimate-careers-v4.html
      Did you use mods before for TS3 in your mac?If yes then it's really easy for you as you just need to put that mod in your mod folder and then download my school lot,extract the zip file and install it.Sims 3 university expansion required because I largely used the objects of this expansion on this lot.I've attached a document fully explaining how to get the school work with the zerbu's ultimate career mod with install instruction in the download file.The download file is a compressed file you need 7zip to extract it

  2. I need help, I have everything I need such as the Zerbu's mod and both mod packages that come with the download file. I also have the lot installed into my Sims 3 Launcher. When I entered the game I tried to go to my community lots because I deleted my school lot that was in my world and figured that this lot was going to be in my community lots in Edit Town mode. Nothing was there that was near the name of, "Par Excellence Academy". I've also went into Build/Buy Mode at the lot I wanted the school to be and made it "All Visitors Allowed" and checked in the Community Objects tab and there was nothing there that was similar to this. Please help me, I cannot even find the lot so I can't play with this.
