Clubs in Get Together
Making a Members-Only Hangout for Your Club
Can be found under member silencecomplex or #carlsguide once Get Together is released.
Now that I have made a club and recruited members, I want them to have their own exclusive party pad to hang out in for official club gatherings. This tutorial will teach you to do that, no matter what type of club you've created. Save the game, then go to Manage Worlds from ESC Menu.
I chose an empty, secluded lot for my club's hangout
Because the Sims 4 lets us have complete control over the game world, we can use any lot we want. I went with one where I had previously done some testing on barring everyone but your club from entering a building. I've now bulldozed it, and am going to make a VERY simple nightclub. People are interested in Building should see our guide to making houses. It wasn't written by me, so don't expect much out of the house I'm building here - but I can explain how some of this works and give you some tips on making a members-only club hangout.
This is the list of different lot types Clubs can use for a Hangout.
Choose a Lot Type
I couldn't get generic to work, and your Sims won't be able to hang out at a lot if you're making a residence unless a club member lives there - as far as I know. This means we need to pick one of the lot types that Clubs can hang out in. The full list is in the picture above, but I'm going for a nightclub since it's a new lot type with the Expansion.
These are the requirements to make a lot count as a Nightclub in Get Together
The requirements are not-too restrictive, but you do have to have at least the basics for a lot to be considered this type. Thankfully, I'll want most of these things because It's a night club I'm after. Because we're developing the city, we have an unlimited budget and that means you can go as extravagant as you'd want. I want an intimate little gathering place with good decorated bonuses so my Sims will be happy. It'll basically be one large open room with a bathroom.
Start with a basic shape
So I made the basic shape, and from the building guide written by Twinmum know to use foundations to make my houses look less box-y. I also used some diagonals to make it look just a tad better.
Foundations, handrails, windows - they all make a building look more realistic.
Now there need to be windows, I'd rather place those before getting to the objects that are required. But, for that added touch of realism, some handrails should go up too.
The shell is done, now to start on those requirements. I later 'fixed' the roof.
Now a roof, and don't make fun of me! I think it's good that I'm not a contractor, but let's move on. Putting some siding up, this looks like a little hideaway and I only needed the one room for my club to chill.
Meet the requirements in style. When in manage worlds mode, you have unlimited cash.
Meet Lot Type Requirements
OK, now to filling the requirements for a nightclub. Thankfully, a DJ booth counts as a stereo (we don't need both, since we can hire a DJ), and you can use small dining tables, all set in a close area so that club members can talk as a group. What's really great about this, is since it's a public lot although you're making it for your club members only, is that the bar and DJ booth will both have workers there to take care of your members!
My night club for the example crew I threw together for this tutorial.
I'm happy with it, fairly simple, plenty of decorations and Get Together's new furniture and other items look pretty fancy. Now we can get on to making the club members-only.
Get Together lets you make sections of buildings members-only for clubs, so you can do this with a whole structure, or make a VIP area for your club members.
Locking the Door to Club Members-Only
This lot's only purpose is to serve the club, and I want it exclusive. All I have to do now is send my Sim to the lot I've built, click the door (walls up!) and select Lock Door for.. Club > My Club. If I wanted to make only a PART of the building, say a VIP room, members-only, I could make a lot, download one from the gallery - whatever - and use this same method on the only entrance to the area I want sectioned off for my club members. You could easily make a small house out back in your own yard for kids' clubs, so they have their own super-secret place to play and work on homework together (yeah right).

You could also make a members house the club hangout, best if it is your controlled sims lot. The club members will use other rooms in the house depending what the club activities are but making a club hangout basement with the club door might solve the problem of extra townies hanging around anyway.
