These Lots are made to work with Zerbu's Ultimate Careers Mod. I also recommend you download the Tuning Mod, so that sims don't lose work performance when not using work related objects, or when leaving the work lot to perform work related activities.
Tutorial: The link to Zerbu's Ultimate Careers Mod above also includes a tutorial of how to assign these buildings to careers, which will cause sims in that career to start attending the open workplace or school, instead of disappearing into the rabbit hole.
Each workplace requires different EP's and possibly store content. The requirements are listed with each Lot. I've made them to fit on the smallest Lot possible for the type of building. I hope you enjoy playing them.
Note: None of the Custom Content is mine. Content has been downloaded from various creators. See favorite CC Sites on the right side of this page for a full listing of creators and links to their sites.
RH Rugs used on these lots are by Cazarupt at TSR. To change the name of the RH rug to match the name of your building/school, click on the RH rug >NRaas>Debug Enabler>change name.
Thanks: I want to thank brappl from NRaas for all her help, time and ingenious ideas in creating these Lots.
Setting filters for doors and gates on these lots (GoHere required)
There are two ways to prevent unwanted sims through a door or gate.
Specify Sims For This Door
Click on the door > Lock > Everyone but myself (prevents the whole town from being on the Can side) Then, click on door again > Lock > Specify sims for this door. Remove your sim from the Can side and choose those from the left side who can open the door. Move them to the right side. (For restaurants I move over only my chefs and waitresses for those who Can open the door.
For setting a door filter:
Click on the door > Lock > Door Options > Create Filter (now unpause the game)
When the criteria list comes up, choose all who can open this door (examples: Age, gender, species, CAREER etc). Now choose from the list that comes up (Career for example) > Accept > Name your filter.
Again, click on the door > Lock > Door Options > Enable/Disable Filter. Also set Door Filter Type to True and Match all Filters to False. Accept. Choose the Filter you named and make sure its set to True (You may have to click on it twice to enable it) Accept.
Setting Door Filter Type to Allow only allows those specified sims to enter.
Setting Door Filter Type to Deny allows everyone to enter EXCEPT your specified sim.
This City Hall has everything your political sims need for work. The main floor has a meeting room for holding town/counsel meetings. There's a coffee pot, tables, seating, a podium, megaphone and a video camera. In the main area there's a whiteboard, for city planning, seating and a book shelf. Tucked behind the bookcase is a small bathroom. The stairs and an elevator take you to the second floor, where there are two offices, a Mobile Radio Station, a kitchen and bathroom.
Note: The rug in front of the elevator is the City Hall RH Rug and is fully accessible for sims to enter the Rabbit Hole.
Requirements: University, Late Night, Generations and Ambitions.
Game Play Tips: When holding a town meeting, have a sim serve coffee, then, using ani's Have Coffee with Me mod, direct sims to grab a cup. Sims will then sit and drink coffee while listening to a speaker at the podium. Also, lock the door to the meeting room to stop sims from wandering all over the place with their coffee. Watch ani's video on How to Hold a City Meeting.
For more suggestions and tips, see the Careers And Jobs Page at NRaas
City Hall Wedding Options: In the last two images I put the whiteboard upstairs and removed the seating. Then I added the Wedding Table from ATS3, (a donation item) and added a couple of flower vases. Next, I hired a random sim, a city hall worker, used the Office Poses, and stood him at the table, making it look like he's performing the wedding.

At the side of the kitchen there's a juice bar and a washroom.

Game Suggestions: The best way to run this for the Culinary UC, is to use ani's mod Business As Usual Bistro Oven, (original store item required) and run this as a Pizzeria. Because the Industrial Oven is one of the career objects needed to gain work performance, it is suggested you assign your culinary workers shifts to this object. You can also direct other workers to use the other objects, make pizzas in the Wood Oven and store baked foods in the fridge.
The kitchen is set up with two gates. With GoHere, from NRaas, you Can set a door filter to allow only the Culinary staff into the kitchen. This will stop other sims from helping themselves to coffee, food from the fridge and getting in your way.
