Damienf519 gave me an idea. I know there are alot of world creators that refuse to use mods because they are nervous! With all respects to them too cause I totally understand! He told me how he was able to deconstruct an apartment I created because it wasnt working as it should, but he loved that it was on a smaller lot than EA's apartments. So I did something for you all!
A big thank you to Bluefunk for unlocking these. http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=427515&c=1&ht=&page =1&pp=25#startcomments You will not need to download the mod Bluefunk created to use these below. I did it for you! You just download the lot and place in your world! Nothing will install in your world mod wise. Just the objects on the lots ready to be used!<--oh and decorated by you! They are just plain jane lots!
Apartment items on a 20x20 lot. Almost everything you need, except the mod! You will still need to use testingCheats and debug to get the special spheres! But just download and here you go, your on your way to starting a new apartment! Can fit any lot 20x20 and up!
Food Truck and parking space without the mod! Its a 10x10 lot that can be placed on any 10x10 or above lot. You just need to build around it! Please note, its been found that if you use a certain mod that deleted cars at night, it will delete the food truck and it will not respawn. If you use in your world please make note of that for your fellow downloaders!
Permanent Tents! This is on a 20x20 lot so you can make campgrounds for your sims to enjoy. You can either delete a few tents or use the eye dropper to create a tent world if you wish! These stay up without having to use a mod to do it yourself! Can be placed on any sized lot 20x20 and up!
Thanks I hadn't even gotten around to deleting the items on that apartment lot of yours yet. I was going to do that today, but that thanks for doing this. I just downloaded the apartment starter, you made. Thanks. This was very nice of you.
I heard through that the food truck doesn't work, unless you give your world a city designation somehow by altering the map's code. I've heard that causes problems. Have you been able to get the food truck to work without doing that?
From what I have read on the food truck, you need to place ALOT of them around town! 3 Minium but the more the better. They said it was alot like the spawners you place for seeds, gems, etc. It takes a few sims hours for them to show, but eventually they do. But the car mod created by twallan to delete the extra cars EA has showing up everywhere will also delete the food truck, and it wont respawn!
I figure hiding them so you can get as many as you can prob wont be a problem. You have to place lots to get the bookstore, grocery and so on, so they can be hidden behind buildings.
I havent personally used them. I placed them in my last world, only because I placed EA lots that had the spaces already, but to me the twallan mod was more important at the moment, atleast until EA fixes what they messed up with the big lemon!
I do use the tents though, I love making little hide-aways in my towns for my sims to go and "rest" without having to travel!
Thanks. That's nice to hear. Its too late for me to use this stuff in Justinburg, since pretty much all the lots I would use them on are finished, however, I should be able to use them in my next town. I think I'll download and try out the food truck when I get started on my next map.

You can go and read the forum on any of these things. You can see more about the food truck and the respawning issue with other mods. I just worry someone will use these in thier worlds and not tell the downloaders about the spawning with the use of a certain mod, then have to deal with "its not working" posts!
