GRAND re-OPENING!
The Von Dough Gallery
completely refurbished and under new management

Anywho... here's another Community Lot make-over from me. I'm trying to update these original Maxis lots to include a broader spectrum of items from all EP/SPs (the UC) - and to make them into more interesting places for your sims to visit. All while keeping the original flavor of the lot, and using very little CC (none, preferably!)






Please scroll through all the pictures above to see all that this Lot has to offer...


This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The package has been cleaned with both Mootilda's Clean Installer and Chris Hatch's Lot Compressor (read about it HERE ) and then double checked with SimPE - it's as squeaky as they come!


I tried to build this lot with as little CC as possible. You will need to go and grab this item:
MMF AL Reversed Spiral Stairs by Anoeska @ TSR
...and if you get unpainted walls/floors, you will need Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. BUT, I don't think I used any of these wallpapers and floors this time. I use them in about every build though, so I may have missed one.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Numenor's CEP (allows recolors) and SEP (allows diagonal placements of objects)
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
I highly recommend adding Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod to your DL folder.
And use gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror.

Great lot! I especially love the rooftop bar. It's a good idea.
