Balloth-Information & Download

Update: Oct 2010 - according to Mootilda's subhood tutorial.
Update: Oct/Nov 2011 - according to Mootilda's HoodChecker program.

Note: Some Sims in this subhood share the same Life Time Want, some also share the same zodiac sign. This was not intentional, families were made by different people who in turn gave them personalities, and that is what ultimately decides these things. If this bothers you, the LTW can be changed in-game by using the ReNuYu Senso Orb aspiration reward object.

To change just the LTW with a hack, you could try the college clock or the ffs debugger from MATY. You do not need to register in order to download, to find them go to the main page, then find Awesomeware/The Armory/Hack Directory - All Hacks/and click whichever is your latest EP/hacks, and find whatever you want from the list you'll see there.

To change both the LTW and the zodiac sign try either of these:
Sim Blender by twojeffs
Sim Manipulator by Aaroneous
Note that both sites will require registration.

Balloth was made using Numenor’s AnyGameStarter program, with a base game and OfB set up. It requires Open for Business but is compatible with other EP's.
Any neighborhood already associated with Bluewater or any other business district will remain so; this new district will not affect your existing neighborhoods. Subsequently any neighborhood you now associate with Balloth will keep its attachment and will require you to delete it in game via the trashcan icon if you want to remove it.

Installation Instructions
Go to your Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Open for Business\TSData\Res\NeighborhoodTemplate. Place the B628 folder into the NeighborhoodTemplate folder. *NOT* into your my Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods folders.

When you start your game and choose to add an Open for Business subdistrict, Balloth will appear in the menu, click on the arrow to add Balloth.

To allow Balloth to show up in your menu and stop the big blue button from getting in your way, please use Mootilda's hack. Also many thanks go to Mootilda at MTS for her Subhood Tutorial, and for her HoodChecker program. Links can be found in the list to the right of this page.

Balloth has been packed as a Rar file; you'll need a program such as WinRar or ExtractNow to unpack it. If you have any concerns, feel free to use the contact details that are available here, or if you'd rather then you can email me personally:
