More Buyable Venues and new Venue Types
REQUIRES THE XML INJECTOR MOD (since March'23)!
I removed the Venue List Files, and this Mod now requires Base's Universal Venue List!
More Buyable Venues and new Venue Types
This tuning mod lets you buy more Venues and adds new Venue Types to the Game.
Get to Work needed to be able to buy Venues!
>>><<< IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS >>><<<
- This mod is based on the retail store xmls from Get to Work as deep as possible without scripting. The functions of the retail store don’t work on other lots than the real retail store. (Open/Close, Hiring Employee etc won’t work!)
- All Venues still have their individuell behavier, nothing was changed there
- Apartments in San Myshuno can not be modified to be buyable as second Homes etc. Unfortunaly those Apartments are no venue types which is necessary to make them buyable. Sorry!

A Park where mainly Toddlers & Children are spawning at daytime
A Place for Toddlers to be taken care of when their Parents are working!
Mo-Fr – 8am ~ 4pm 2-6 Toddlers, Sa 6pm ~ 10pm 2-6 Toddlers – You need to be there at 8am/6pm because Toddlers are spawning in a small Time Frame and stay around 6hrs
(Unfortunately Family Members want to hang out there too sometimes and Toddlers sometimes despawn just like that when their duration is over instead of walking out or getting picked up.)
- Customizable Venue
Customize a Generic Lot (Read Info below before using this!)
- Rentable Business
You can use this to own a Hotel, Prison or Apartment Building (Read Info below before using this!)
Be an Owner of a Cinema or a Visitor (Read Info below before using this!)
“Open own Business” and “Close own Business”
Added new Options “Open own Business” and “Close own Business” on Doors when the Lot is one of the following custom Businesses and owned by the Active Household. Ownable Bar, Ownable Cafe, Ownable Club, Ownable Karaokebar, Ownable Lounge, Ownable Relaxation Center, Cinema & Gaming Center. If the Lot is owned by the Active Household the Business will be closed on default after the first travel to the Lot and can be opened via the Interaction. No Guests will spawn if the Business is closed. This does not affect Employees. If you visit a custom Business as a Guest it will be opened by default. (Be aware: After closing the Lot a few Sims that where already in the “spawn” process will still arrive at the Lot. You can use my Force to Leave Lot to let them leave then) This new Open/Close Function is compatible with the More Visitors Mod.
External Venue Types (not included in this Mod!)
- SNBank Mod by SimRealist
SNBank is a base mod pack to rework or boost the financial system of the Sims 4. More Infos & Download -> www.simrealist.com
>>><<< MORE INFORMATION FOR NEW VENUE TYPES >>><<<
- Generic Lot (Visitors Allowed)
How to customize Generic Lots:
I recommend using my Lot Traits Dress Code | More Visitors | Entrance Fee | Preferences Mods so you can customize Generic Lots into your own personal Business!
Example: A Generic Lot with Entrance Fee, More Visitors & Preferences (Entertainment) Lot Traits!
>>> Rentable Business <<<
What you generally need to know:
I wanted this Venue to be flexible so you can use it to have a small B&B with 4 Beds, a Motel with 10 Beds or a Hotel with 20+ Beds. You could even use this to make a rentable Apartment Building where you are the Landlord or a Prison with 50 Prisoners. This is why no Sims get autonomosly spawn. You have to choose how many and who should spawn on the Lot!
- As the Owner you can Collect your Income once per Day. The Income is based on the Number of Beds! Bed 1-10 will give 250$ per Bed. Bed 11-20 will give 125$ per Bed. Bed 21-40 will give 75$ per Bed. 40 Beds and above will give a random Money Loot between 5325-12500$
- As a Guest or Tenant you have to Pay a Daily Rate of 150$ per Sim (75$ per Child, Toddler are Free)
- Sims that get spawn on the Lot have a Situation Duration of 100 Days. But if you leave the Lot they will still vanish. Use the Current Guests etc. Interaction to bring them back.
- You need to Check out/Dismiss/Cancel all Guests/Prisoners/Tenants including yourself (When you are a Guest etc.)! If not you need to remove the “Hotel Trait” manually! (Traits.Remove_trait Hotel)
- Same goes for the Owner. If you don’t sell the Lot via the new Interaction on Computers you need to remove the “Hotel Owner Trait” manually! (Traits.Remove_trait HotelOwner)
How to use the Rentable Business Venue!
After changing a Lot to the Rentable Venue Type you need to specify the Venue by using one of the following Lot Traits:
- B&B|Motel|Hotel LotTrait
- Prison LotTrait
- Apartment LotTrait
These will make the Lot workable and have the following characteristics:
B&B|Motel|Hotel and Prison
- Inappropriateness Tags: Cleaning, Cooking, Grab Snack, Bartending
- Appropriateness Tags: Sleeping
- Appropriateness Tags: Sleeping, Cleaning, Cooking, Grab Snack, Bartending
The new Venue and the LotTraits will activate new Interactions:
On Computers (Hotel/Prison/Apartment)
- Confirm Booking/Confirm Prisoners/Confirm Tenants – With this Interaction you can get Guests/Prisoners/Tenants on the Lot.
- After the confirmed Sims have arrived on the Lot you need to Check them in via Check in Guests/Prisoners/Tenants – Those Sims will get a special Trait as long as they are Guests etc.
- Check out Guests/Dismiss Prisoners/Cancel Rental Agreement – You need to Check out Guests etc. properly no matter if you are the Owner or a Guest etc. yourself! This Way the Trait they/you got will be deleted and they/you will go Home.
- Current Guests/Current Prisoners/Current Tenants – If you leave the Lot for a Sightseeing Trip and come back and the other Guests etc. have vanished, this will “bring them back”.
- Sell Rentable Business (Owner only!) – The Owner gets a special Owner Trait when buying this Venue Type. I highly recommend selling the Venue via this Interaction to delete the Trait and sell the Lot!
- Call Rentable Business Owner over (Guest/Prisoner/Tenant Only!) – If you are visiting the Lot as a Guest etc. you can call the Owner over. Owners (just as NPCs) then will get a Buff which gives them characteristics of Maids, Handyman, Gardener & Nanny (Help Toddler, Talk with Kids, Mentor Kids, Play with Kids)
On Doors (Unlock Door Mod highly recommended)
- Assign Room/Assign Cell/Assign Apartment – This lets you Assigns Rooms to Guests etc. You need my Unlock Doors Mod to be able to Lock Doors on non owned Venues (if you are a Guest etc.)
- Assign Beds – This lets you Assign Beds to Guests etc. Needed for the “Bedtime” Interaction!
- Bedtime – This Interaction let’s you choose Sims who then get really tired and go to their assigned Beds. However sometimes they still prefer to Nap or Relax. I recommend using my Send to Bed Mod with this too.
- Better Mattress for (if you have the Better Mattress Mod!) – If you use my Better Mattress Mod you can give all Guests (including yourself) a Buff which prevents Uncomfortable Buffs from cheap Beds and gives better Energy while sleeping!
Recommended Mods to use with this Venue:
- Send to Bed
- Unlock Doors
- Ask to Cook
- Better Mattress
- Call to Meal
>>> Cinema <<<
“Movie Hangout” SP is necessary for this Venue Type because i wanted a more real Cinema Feeling instead of Sims watching News or Stuff. I also disabled autonomous watching TV to stop Sims from changing the Channel in the middle of a Movie.
New Interactions to watch Movies (Cinema Show) added to 4 big TVs:
Plasmatron 3000 (BG), Anti Flatscreen TV HDCurV (CL EP) and the two MovieScreens (MH SP).
These Interactions will let you choose up to 30 Sims to go and watch a Movie. (I recommend using the Watch Movie and Be Quiet please Mod with this)
The Movie will start right away to prevent your Sim as an Owner of a Cinema to have to start and watch each Movie. Your active Sim is also choosable in the SimPicker Menu so the new Interactions work for both the Owner and Guests.
Money Loot for Owners will be via Computer “Collect Salary”, when Sims take Popcorn, Barista/Espressobar and with the Entrance Fee (Updated Version needed of Entrance Fee LotTrait).
>>><<< LITTLEMSSAM’S BUSINESS SERVICES >>><<<
Send us a Text via Phone and one of our professional Service Employees will arrive within a few Minutes!
You can hire one of our Services (Maid, Handyman, Gardener) once per Day for Free! A Mailbox is needed on the Lot for the Services to work!

>>><<< TIPS >>><<<
- So far i could not get the Close/Open Function working on other Venues because it seems to be to deeply coded so here is a Tip to pretend to be closing/opening your Bar etc.:
- Use my “Force to Leave” Mod to “close” your Business. Then lock the Door! When you visit the Bar etc. the next day all NPC from the day before are gone and new NPCs can not spawn inside your Bar etc.. They are going to come when the door is unlocked or are waiting outside for you to unlock the door!
- How to become retired Scientist to use all objects on a lab venue:
1. Type “careers.add_career Scientist” in Command Console
2. Type “careers.promote Scientist” in Command Console, repeat that until you are lvl 10
3. Type “careers.remove_career Scientist” in Command Console
4. Optional type “testingcheats on” in Command Console, right click on you Sim and choose Scientist -> Breakthrough ALL
>>><<< INSTALLATION/DEINSTALLATION >>><<<
- Installation: Put the Main Mod and the Venue List into your Mod Folder.
- Deinstallation: Before deinstalling the Mod change all Custom Venues back to normal Venues and sell all owned Venues you bought via this Mod. After that you can delete the Mod Files.
>>><<< FAQ >>><<<
I can’t find the Menu to buy Venues?!
If you have all Mod Files & the XML Injector in your Mods Folder, you should find the Menu under the “Household” Menu on every Computer at Home.
Check if you installed the XML Injector and if all files are maximal one Subfolder deep
Check if you have Script Mods enabled in your Options.
Check if you find the Menu on another Computer.
Check if you get the Menu when you put all other Mods/CC out of your Mods Folder and just have this one in.
Check if it works if you put the Files directly in the Mod Folder and not into Subfolders.
