March 19 - The Sims Alexa Skill got a StrangerVille and Medieval update! Read the details here.

Strangetown or Veronaville

I always end up playing Pleasantview because I love all the drama but I want to try another neighborhood. I am having a hard time deciding between Strangetown and Veronaville. If you vote for Strangetown, do you keep the weather summer all the time??

    I love the Tudor style of Veronaville. But if you do end up deciding to play Strangetown, I usually delete winter so that there only spring, summer, and autumn.

    Thanks guys for the votes so far. I am going to let it run a day or two before I make a decision. @BridgetKV Thanks for the weather suggestion.

    Strangetown
    Strangetown because its just so dang strange. And yes I keep it as desert as possible. Although as it is strange then you could have it set any way you want. As I have been doing an Apocalypse Challenge I have had it set on all winter.

    Veronaville - my alltime go-to neighborhood. :) Especially interesting if you let the feud continue on. ;)

    I love Veronaville! I always switch between Veronaville and Pleasantview. I never played Strangetown much because I don't find it aesthetically pleasing. I usually set the season to summer or spring.

    Veronaville was my favourite town in Sims 2, I loved the Shakespeare theme and family drama!

    I like Strangetown the best after Pleasantview. I love the storyline and the Sims. I allow four seasons when I play. I live in the high desert and we have four seasons, so I don't feel it's unrealistic. I have rarely played Veronaville because I don't care for the Shakespearean theme, but that's just a personal preference.

    I love love love the architecture and Shakespeare theme of veronaville, but Strangetown will just always have a strange little place in my heart. I love the weird alien area 51 vibes and the crazy families...the Smiths, Spectres, Nervous Subject, the three brothers (can't remember their name rn for whatever reason but I blame lack of sleep). There are just so many different ways Strangetown can be played. I generally kept the weather desert-y and took winter out.

    Hmm...can't decide. Things were better when I played an uberhood, but everything went squirrely after I changed my vid card when some houses I had dl'd years ago seem to have caused some corruption and I ditched my save.

    I like the look and feel of Veronaville, but I am forced to do something I don't normally do - marry townies. Can't have inbreeding!
    I actually like some of the families less in Strangetown than I do in Veronaville, but there is a larger gene pool. That's also the hood that Aliens fit the best in. Even though TS2 Aliens don't do anything special, they are my favorite version.

    *I have my Strangetown seasons set as Summer, Summer, Fall, Winter. Spring seems to be the season that I simply can't justify there.

    wooo Veronaville is winning I am a little surprised..lol. Thanks all for your participation I was really having a hard time deciding. I am ending the poll tomorrow to allow for more votes. @Anmirla if Strangetown somehow makes a crazy comeback I think I am going with your weather idea. Summer summer fall winter.

    Thanks all for the VOTES :) Veronaville wins and that is where I will be starting my new game.

    Guys :(

    With the recent announcement for sims 4, it made me want to play Strangetown more especially since it is very likely I am not picking up the gamepack until a sale.

    I think I am swapping to Strangetown :o

    I'm glad you're switching over to Strangetown! My favorite hood has always been that one and with the new Strangerville pack I've been remaking everyone in the Sims 4. It's a real weird little town, you won't regret playing it!

    Okay I just need to update and say I played Strangetown for the past 4 days and omg I really enjoyed it! I've been making alien families and the alien babies are so cute. I still prefer Veronaville but I'm glad I eventually gave Strangetown a chance.

    LOL YAY and I have been having fun there too. I never really played the with aliens much in sims 2. It has been loads of fun these past few days. I am still trying to get to know the premades there. I know the Pleasantview sims so well, it is so weird starting somewhere else and having to get to know these sims. The Grunt boys were fighting non-stop which was hilarious. It reminded me of Lilith and Angela Pleasant. One of the Curious brothers had an alien baby and the other is pregnant by an alien...lol The last brother is dating a human but he may have an alien baby too at some point. Nervous moved out but I think he is going back with his mother and have a happy life unless a ghost scares him to death. Maybe when Olive dies I will send all the gravestones to the new created graveyard.

    Anyways I have been enjoying my time there. I will be playing veronaville as well soon...LOL

    Veronaville is probably the base game town I’ve spent the least amount of time in.
