This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Lot Size: 40 X 40
Lot Type: Dive Bar
Cost furnished: 152,048
Cost unfurnished: 71,463
EPs: All through IP
Store: Lots of it. See below for full list. (There is also a store- and cc-free option for download.)

Located next to the crystal shafts in the Lunar Lakes mountains, Zoolie's Interstellar Cantina is a complete dive, unfit for any but the hardiest immune systems. Despite its rundown, unsanitary conditions, it provides enough entertainment to separate the rough-and-tumble local miners from their weekly paychecks. More notoriously, it's far enough from the prying eyes of the settlement security teams to attract even less savory types like smugglers, who take advantage of the private alcoves to make deals of all sorts; pirates, who enjoy the dubious charms of the green girl in the basement; and itinerant spacers who are either haggling for parts and services for their ships, or who might just be addicted to the back patio's pineapple bubbles.

A savvy blue alien sells the ship parts and services from small stands lining the side wall of the cantina. Rumor has it some guy and a kid tried to fast talk him out of parts for a J-type 327 Nubian cruiser last week but he wasn't taken in by the hand-waving.

The interior first floor has a bar, several seating alcoves, and two all-in-one bathrooms. (No doubt the owner charges the miners for showers.) The second floor has another bar, another bathroom, a dominoes table, an arcade game, a robotic blackjack table, and a stage for jam sessions. In the basement there's a stereo and dance floor, plus a private bedroom for whatever it is that might transpire.

There is a lot of store stuff in here, and a bit of cc. The lot was done for the Groundwork Building Contest, and I was going for a very specific look. The good news is, most of the store items like particular lights, stools, deco, etc, can be easily replaced with something else or just left out if you don't have them. But be aware that the Monte Vista grimy wallpapers cover most of the walls, and your building will look odd without them.

If you don't have or want the store stuff and cc, download the (NS) version of the lot, which has been remodeled to remove all of that.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 152,048

Additional Credits:
Many thanks to the creators for the Mod to Remove Stencils and Overlays by velocitygrass, which I used in the lot; and for the Pink Slip, Bad Morning and 99 Bottles of Beer poses by spladoum, To Love Ru poses by JuBa_0oş, and of course the Pose Player by cmomoney, which I used in the screenshots.

This is a multi-part download:

The default version uses store content and cc. If you want the lot without that, choose the (NS) version.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
