    A Place for Toddlers and Kids to play and enjoy the sun!

    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

  • 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!



How to buy a Venue:

  • The Venues are buyable via the new Pie Menu “Buyable Venues” which can be found on every ingame Computer under the Household Menu.

What can you do on those Venues:

  • Transfer Money from and to Household
  • Build on Lot with your own Money
  • Earn Money

EARNING MONEY (not on residential lots)

  • Via every ingame Computer or via the Tablet (Tablet has no Animation)
    These will let you collect Income every 24 hrs. There are three Money Loots for different Venues and the Outcome is random.
  • Low (750 ~ 1000$):
    Karaoke Bar
    Relaxation Center
    Ownable Lounge
    Ownable Karaoke Bar
    Ownable Bar
    Ownable Club
    Ownable Relaxation Center
    Scientist Lab
  • Medium (1000 ~ 1250$):
    Ownable Café
    Gaming Center
  • High (1250 ~ 1500$):
    Arts Center
    Medical Clinic
  • None:



If you use my “Entrance Fee on Community Lots” Mod you’ll get the following Entrance Fees:

Lot | Entrance Fee per Hour

  • Pool | 10 $
  • Gym | 20 $
  • Karaoke Bar | 20 $
  • Lounge | 30 $

There’s more to come…


  • Bars (default)
    This Addon disables the special Events (Ghosts/Bears/Knights/Alien) and non of those NPCs are spawning at Bars.
  • Granite Falls
    This Addon turns the Vacation World into a Residential World so you can build a Holiday Home there and buy it!
    Be aware that the “Vacation” Interaction where you really take time of work does not work when you have this Addon installed. It’s connectet to the Vacation World and does not work when the World is turned into residential. Use this Addon on your own risk since it may can cause Problems that are not known yet!
  • Hire Lot Owner & Optional Outfit Requirement
    This Addon changes the Filter for specific NPCs you can Hire. Changed the costs to 0$ (default 100$) when you don’t own the Lot. If you are visiting a Custom Bar/Club etc. which is owned by another Household you play and you want the Owner to come and work you can now find them in the Pick List if they have at least the following levels:
    Barista no lvl needed
    Bartender min. lvl 1
    Entertainer (DJ, Guitar, Piano, Organ, Violin, Comedy) min. lvl 5
    MassageTherapist min. lvl 5
    Optional Outfit Requirement:
    This will change the Uniform into the Formal or Everyday Outfit
    Everyday = DJ, Guitar, Comedy, Barista
    Formal = Piano, Organ, Violin, Bartender


  • 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: 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.


I can’t find the Menu to buy Venues?!

If you have the
in your Mods Folder, you should find the Menu under the “Household” Menu on every Computer at Home.

If not:
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.


You want to translate this Mod? Awesome!^^

I added Strings as a seperate Package File for Translators in the Download Section.
If you want to Translate this Mod, please download this File to translate the Strings with Sims4Studio/S4pe and upload the new saved Package File in the Mod Thread.


  • This Mod adds Custom Venues to the Game. Every other Mod that is adding Custom Venues IS NOT compatible. My Venue List includes Zerbu’s Venue List and the Get to College Venue List! If you use one or both of those please delete their Venue List!
  • 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
  • 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!
  • If you use this mod, delete the Freelancer Salary Mod pls
  • If you use my Playing Together Mod please be aware that the Playing Together Addon is NOT compatible with this mod. Please delete the Addon before using this one!

Available languages: English (default), German, French, Chinese, Portuguese and Spanish

  1. I really want to use this mod but I’m unsure if it will conflict with the go to school mod? I know you mentioned the university one, but I have go to school working and not university right now.

    I would LOVE to use this, university, & go to school! Will it work?

    • Hi,

      yes, it should work with Go to School V4. I don’t use that Mod but i know some did use MBV & GTS together.

      You just have to use my Venue List & delete Zerbus.

  2. Hey, is it possible to earn money through singing at your lounge or something like that? Like a makeshift singer career?

    • It is something on my To Do List but not exactly as a Part of Buyable Venues because it should not be bound to own a Lot. More like a Freelancer Career. But i have not 100% planned this out yet and i can’t say when exactly i will work on that since my To Do list is long^^

  3. Hi ! I’m curious about the Granite Falls as residential world addon. Does it work without the main mod ? I have no much use for it, but I’m very interested in having people living in Granite Falls for when my sims goes in that area. To make it some kind of a village where my sims goes from time to time instead of a holiday club with random people from the main residential worlds.

    • Hi,

      you can use the Granit Falls Addon without the actual More buyable Venues Mod 😉 But be aware that it turns the Vacation World into a normal Residential World.
      Plus i never 100% tested it while actually living in that World. But so far i never had any Issues there.

      • Downloading now ! 😉 Thank you for your answser, I’ll send you feedback if I find anything wrong.
        By the way, I really like your mod collection and I wanted to tell you that they are part of the few mods that really increase the quality of the game to me. So thanks a lot, and keep up the good work ! 😀

  4. Agradeço muitissimo pelo mod !!!!!!!!!!!! O ADOROOOOOOOOO. Faz a jogabilidade ser mais interessante. Mas no meu jogo não aparece a opção colégio. :(((

    • Make sure you actually have more Toddlers in your World. Only Toddler who exists are getting spawned. Toddler spawn in a small Timeframe so be sure you are at the Daycare before 8 am. You could also use the More Visitors Lot Trait Mod. There you have a Interaction on Doors where you could “invite” Toddlers over. The “Collect Money” Interaction is available in the Main Menu of Computers/Tablets (just checked in it does work in Daycares that are owned)

  5. Oi LittleMsSam!
    Quando vou editar um lote e vou escolher a opção de torná-lo uma escola a mesma não aparece :(. Todos os outros estão listados e funcionando perfeitamente. De novo obrigada pelo Mod, não consigo mais viver sem ele.

    • Hi Karen. I’m sorry i don’t understand fully what you mean. Google Translator is not a good help here^^ Do you mean you can’t find Schools in the Build Menu List? Zerbus Schools? If so then you probably need Zerbus V4 School Mod. If that is not the Problem can you try to explain it a bit more?

  6. kkkkkkkk, sei como o google translator é horrível. Agora eu compreendi o problema. Eu tinha pensado que o MOD era integrado com o Ir a Escola de Zerbu. Obrigada pela ajuda!!!! E obrigada pelo MOD!!!!

    • Ok^^ Yeah just Zerbus Venue List is included in my Venue List. So you still need the Main Go to School Mod. Just make sure to delete Zerbus Venue List! 😉
