Where the heck do all our sims even buy those cars they own? They're not...exactly...brands that we're used to. So they must be SimNation made. But that still doesn't explain where we buy them from! I doubt our sims go to the mall and walk out with a car.
So for a bit more added realism...here is SimNation Autos!
Forgive me for any inaccuracies, but I've been in two of these places (one in GTA: Vice City, one for real), and I tried to gather all their common traits:
-Cars in windows
-Lots of windows
-A car portrayed on a pedestal
-Open ceiling with a second floor for fancy cars
Inside has a few cars displayed, as well as a bunch of Kenspas! There's a couch for people to wait for the dealer.
The dealer has his own non-threatening office. Though maybe it is threatening. He's got his fancy car and his car's awards all lined up behind him, he's gonna be pissed that you're only there for a Sloppy Jalopy.
The car on display in the front window.
The cars upstairs, and a seating area for talking with a dealer. The dealer logo is in here, too, as well as against the wall outside.
The cheap and smaller cars...
The expensive family cars...
And the fancy expensive sportscar! The rest of the expensive cars are inside, displayed upstairs.
I think I got the feeling of an overzealous car dealership down pretty well. And it only requires 3 custom content objects! (Granted, one is a set of 44 windows...but they're good windows.)
Lot size is 30x40
-These Roof Colors (for the dome on top)
-These community lot cars
This lot is not functional. It does not *do* anything. It's simply there because I think it's a cool idea and it adds yet another extra bit of decorative realism to the neighborhood. I personally built it on the lot where the Diner was.
