Yes, I am wondering about that too: how about the routing issues? Probably a lot of objects will be decoration only and I asume you simply click on the cassa to buy your things.
I hope the building can still be owned by a property owner in this game but probably it can be upgraded now to provide more money, just like some buildings like the gym. We will see.

The Sims 2 had a decent set-up for a non-rabbit hole grocery store and I wish EA would bring something like that back again. 

I discovered the following on Sims VIP

♦ There are 3 New Rabbit Holes which were selected via the Community Poll back in December. The 3 new Rabbit holes are:
-School Par Excellence Preparatory School
- Bistro Scrumptious Nibbles Caf
-Grocery Store Fresh and Frozen Express Grocer


Sims VIP also has some other useful information regarding this stuff pack.

How did a thread about the new stuff pack turn into a discussion of non-rabbit hole lots?  Let's keep it on topic, please.

I believe because most people were confused that the Stuff Pack would replace some rabbit holes such as the Grocery store with non-rabbit holes. But it's not true, according to the information Mtglady's post, and the Sims VIP link.

It is still on topic Pam. You may have missed it, but Town Life Stuff seems to include non-rabit hole lots. I mean, they will replace the Bistro to something you can follow your sims into. Now I read the same count for the school, and grocery store. ;)

Leto, I think you are still confused.  Those three lots (the grocer, Bistro and school) are still not something you can follow your Sim into.  They are just new designs with new names but are really the three rabbit-hole lots that we have always had. 

The pack will include four pre-built lots (library, gym, laundromat and playground) with new items to update and/or change them to suit your taste.  These are the lots you can follow your Sim into. 

So you can actually change the look and/or feel of your entire town with this SP if you want to.  For instance, if you changed all the community lots in Sunset Valley to these new lots, you could call it Sunnyslope instead ;).

Yes, I know. And I was about to edit my post just when my internet connection got so bad I couldn't even access this forum anymore. But I see what you mean now.

I've got some screenshots of the clothing and hair that came with Town Life.  First we have Bubblegum Dreamweaver modeling the clothing and hair for female Sims.

Sigh, just like the rest... EA is really horrible at clothing, in my opinion. The last EP/SP that was good (in the fashion sense) was... Late Night, and it barely scraped by. I just find myself using the standard clothing.

The clothing is designed around the theme of the expansion/stuff pack.  Unless someone loves every style of clothing that has existed since the beginning of time, there will be a lot of stuff you won't care for.  It doesn't make EA horrible at clothing.

Those hair choices are rather unusual. What's with the bowl cut? I do like the clothing though.  :)

Hey! I actually like the clothing options in this stuff pack. I find these clothes very trendy and stylish, and absolutely something I would wear in real life.

EA isn't horrible at clothing, yeah they make mistakes, like the dress I got at the SimStore for 75 SimPoints, but they actually make some really nice and cute clothes, that I would more than likely wear in real life.

Well, personally I won't ware most dresses EA had made, but perhaps that has something to do with other things. :P

I like the first sweater of Antone Dreamweaver. It looks a little bit Start Trek style.
Most clothing EA had made I like, but I think they are making sure they won't make it too beautiful to be a inspiration for some people who like to make their own clothes for this game. Like: 'You can make it better? Be my guest!' If that's so, EA has done this with a reason, like I think they actually do with everything.

You've already got it???

What else does it have? I'll have to go in to get it this week.

I love getting more clothes and hairstyles, regardless what they look like (usually) because I love having more variety. My latest way of playing lets me have tons of variety in sims and it's really fun :)

The hair and clothing that I posted already is all that comes with the stuff pack.  It has very little in the way of home furnishings, too.  A few light fixtures, dining table and chairs, some outdoor things for children (sand box, spring rider, etc.).  The rest of it is all the replacement buildings for around town.  There's a new gym, cafe, library, laundromat, grocer, small park, and school.  From what I can tell so far, the new community lots are smaller than their original counterparts, so it shouldn't be a problem placing them.  Also, there are no new residential lots at all.

Here are a couple of pictures of the Scrumptious Nibbles Cafe in place of Hogan's Diner.

:o I adore that new cafe! It just looks so much more modern, and I adore modern-themed things! Oh, my town is so getting completely redone as soon as I get my hands on this SP! And thanks for those screenshots of the clothes and hair too, Pam. I also really adore some of those clothes, especially the ruffled top with the jacket, I've been looking for something like that for ages!

Amazon UK says July 29. My local Danish shop says July 28. I would actually be amazed if I can get anything before you. :D

Well, I just picked up Town Life Stuff, so here's my two cents on it. Unfortunately, the grocery store and everything else is still a rabbit-hole.  :'( At least it looks more modern! I've seen some of the furniture, and I personally really like the library stuff. I haven't looked at the outfits, but I think they will be nice =). I already built a 10x15 library, which you guys should see on the Building / Remodeling Showboat Thread soon. Overall, I give the Sims 3 Town Life Stuff Pack a 3.75. I knocked off a good part of it because the rabbit-holes are still unfortunately rabbit holes, but the furniture is good  ;D. I would recommend getting it, but don't expect it to be completely outstanding of a pack  ;).

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P
