Lots/ Stages

********IF YOU ARE GOING TO DOWNLOAD MY LOTS READ THIS FIRST**********

My lots are for storytellers and taking pictures ONLY!!! They are not a Showtime Venue, unless you put the stage and make it that way. IT WILL NOT WORK AS A VENUE. Thanks for looking at my "Stages". I will make some with the stage, but not right now.

Audience Tutorial

Here is a short little tutorial on how to make it seem like you have a packed house.

1. Please make sure you have testingcheatsenabled true on.  If you don't then this tutorial will not work. 

2. If you don't know how to get the cheat on, then you have been living under a rock and I will not do that here.

3.  Make sure you have buydebug on.  You will need this to get to the fog emitter.

4.  Don't panic I will show you where it is at.



Okay, now that we have covered the cheats, let's begin.

Here you have an empty stadium:
 

Obviously I have not typed in buydebug on.

See now I have it on.

Okay, now I added a sim.  And since I hate the plumbob, here is how to remove it. 


Hit Shift+Ctrl+C and then type in the blue hideheadlineeffects on.  Exactly like I have it and voila, no more plumbob.


Okay now let's get to the good stuff, go click on the question mark, like this:

Now that you are in the buydebug, click on miscellaneous,  like this:




*Do not use the Big Show Crowd*

Because this is what it looks like:

And in live mode: 

Okay, now that we have that established, scroll down until you see the green ball and then click on it, like this:

Grab it, place it in front of the stage and it should look like this:


Now hit Shift+Ctrl on your keyboard and click on the fog emitter (while holding the shift and ctrl keys), if you have done it right this is what you will get:


Now click on Set Visual Effect.. like this:

Again if you did it right, you will get this:

Now in the box type in ep6crowdposreaction_main or ep6crowdposreactionb_main.   If you want it to look real I suggest also using ep6crowdnormal_main or ep6crowdnormalb_main.  Just so you have some just standing there.  I will show you a picture of what the last two look like at the end of this tutorial.

And this is what you will get:

 Now the fun part, while holding shift and control click on the fog emitter:

Click on the clone, (keep holding down shift and ctrl) like this:

You can let go of shift and ctrl to move your crowd around, but make sure before you let go of the mouse you are holding down shift and ctrl.

See here, I have moved them:


Keep doing this until you are satisfied.  


To give the effect that they are on the steps do the same thing only put them on the OMSP and adjust that to the height of the stairs you want.


So you will end up with something like this:




Here is what each of the codes look like:
ep6crowdposreaction_main

 epcrowdposreactionb_main

 ep6crowdnormal_main

 ep6crowdnormalb_main

Yes, I do know that they look the same.

I hope this helps, for anyone who needs to tell a story about a band or a singer.


By the way, you can see the crowd in action here

  5. ~ First of great Tut!
    ~ Next does this work outside,some one said you have to have walls for the crowd to work?
    ~ Thank you for sharing! (",)

  6. ~First off thank you!
    ~ No Ma'am you do not need walls for this to work. If you go to "The Connors" Chapter 15, you will see that I took several shots with the crowd outside. They look the same inside and out.
    ~Your welcome! ;)

  8. Yes, they do, that is why I also recommend using the other codes I put up on the tutorial. That way you have some that aren't really doing anything. Thank you for looking. Don't worry about your English, mine is not that great either and I speak it. Aw your sweet. Thanks again for looking Camilo.

  9. Great tutorial! This will help so much.

  10. Thanks you Melissa. I had a couple of people ask me how I got the audience so I put one up.

  11. hey, cool tut, Kiddo, there is also this shiftable fog emitter so you don't have to use the omsp. It really helps makes things easier and the emitters stay in place when you upload a lot even if the downloader doesn't have the same emitter.
    REALLY love it.

    1. Sorry I only saw your reply now.... bad, bad me!
      I have used several of my singing poses in my secon chapter, so next time I will have to borrow yours ;)

    2. You don't have to borrow you may have them, or download them. I want to do a tut on the singing but I haven't the time right now.

  18. I am assuming yes, if you have Showtime. I don't know though. Try it and see. Let me know will you.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have Showtime but I have not the Set Visual Effect, and the Set Visual Effect have got the ambition's icon (i'm italian sorry)

    ReplyDelete
  20. You do not have the fog emitter? If you don't then yeah, I would say you can't do it. But I would think so. You need the Fog emitter. That's the bluish greenish ball, under the buydebug. Let me know! Don't apologize for being Italian.

    ReplyDelete
  21. No, there is not ... there are other ways? I'm downloading ambitions in the meantime ...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Weird!! I guess I am wrong. I will do a little research.

    ReplyDelete
  23. If you look at the icon of the objects you will see that is the logo of ambitions and not of showtime...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ok, I did a little research and asked a few of my modder friends. Two say that it came with a patch, and one says you have to have ambitions. Yes, I know it has the ambitions icon. So, take it for what it is worth, I tried to see if it came with a patch and couldn't find anything substantial. So, I am going to say you have to have ambitions for it to work until someone can show me. I will not uninstall my game, unless I absolutely have to. I hope this helps, I am so sorry you are having such a time with this.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Now I have Ambitions, and I have the file :D Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ok, I am glad that you are able to do it now. I hope you have a packed house.
