Live in Vacation Worlds with Traveler?

Is it possible to set it up so that my sims can permanently live in France? I know I'd have to add in the career rabbitholes and schools and whatnot.

I don't see any technical reason why not, doing so would require using Traveler's Change Hometown procedure like any other foreign world. Not sure how fulfilling it would be to play a WA world as a homeworld due to the lack of anything for many of the locals to do (which you can help correct by adding some rabbitholes as you said and perhaps some additional venues and the like) and their tendency towards demographics that do not favor children or younger. But it's not like trying this out should break anything, as far as I know.

I did it many years ago, and it all worked fine. I didn't add that many rabbit holes or venues, just the ones I considered necessary. I had my sims explore all the tombs at their leisure. (possibly using cheats to get in - I cannot remember).  I would do it again, but my laptop doesn't manage well with any but very small worlds.

Thanks both of you! It just seems to fit the family, they feel the need to move and none of the neighborhoods I can find fit them, and they LOVE France. 

I am concerned though, because there are kids in the family... Will France not spawn any kids, even after I build a school and if I have story progression on? I've seen story progression working to make couples, I (think) it even said someone was pregnant although that could be me misremembering.

SP should work fine in France. What I meant by the demographics comment was that if you routinely switch active play out of and into these worlds, you may find that sim babies and toddlers left behind are suddenly all children and teens the next time you return.

When my sims lived in France, I used SP and the inactive sims had lots of children. It all worked just like any other world in that respect.
