Strangetown (Populated) (Download Now! 07/15)

This is a finished version of Strangetown which contains all families from the Sims 2 PC. It's a reimagining of the town which contains all necessary rabbit holes and features to make the world fully playable in The Sims 3. More sims will be available in a future release.

The world requires the Base Game and Seasons patched to 1.63 and the installation of a single CC package. Every bit of CC is made by me for this world.

Instructions on installing the world are included in the download which you can find at http://www.mediafire.com/download/eycb7mt0duw4f88/Strangetown+1.2.zip

I've posted loads of pics of how I made this world at my blog (CreateaWorldBlog.tumblr.com)

Enjoy! :mrgreen:

    Just started adding buildings. Rabbit holes haven't been designed yet though.

    It took you a month? Aw man, it takes that long?? I dunno if I want to take that long. What terrain paints did you use? I thought maybe a couple of days .. a month .. that's so long .. my sims will fade away waiting. What size is that one?

    Yep. I started on the 15th Feb. I think I've got a lot done though. I've had to plan, heightmap and texture the terrain, make rabbit hole recolors, mesh some cactuses and plants, create textures in Photoshop for custom trees and terrain paints and research and profile the sims from the sims 2. My map is a 2048 x 2048 300 and uses a distant terrain made just for my map. :D

    He's a pretty fast worker. It will probably take a lot longer than a month, but it's really fun. A couple of days is unreasonable, but if you make a small world it won't take as long.

    WOW! I've been waiting for a Strangetown EP update (the one I'm using now is great but is only up to Late Night), and this looks great! Quick Q: will you make a CC-free version?

    Keep up the good work! :D

    Sorry Pritzooo I really should've updated my first post. This world will no logner be using Supernatural because quite a lot of my blog followers don't have it. It already requires seasons and I don't want to deter people with lots of EPs. I hope this is good news for those who don't like supernatural though :-)

    I'll never do a CC free version sorry. I spent weeks on CC and it's really what makes strangetown different from other worlds. :lol:
    Keep up the good work!

    Thank you! :mrgreen:

    Your worlds are real nice! =) I don't use CC, so for the worlds you already created, I left well deserved recs! And will do the same for this when its finished.

    Just wanted to say that you're doing an amazing job imagining the rest of Strangetown. I probably won't download either (because of CC, sorry ;p ) But I will 'rec ;D Also, don't forget the Road To Nowhere highway-like part ;)

    It's beautiful, Aaronrogers! I wish I could download it when you're done. But I know that's probably not an option, as I stopped patching my game at 1.57, and I imagine yours is fully updated. I'm not willing to let anything more in my game get broken with a patch that doesn't fix anything relevant to my own game, when everything in my game is currently working.

    I'm looking forward to trying out this world. I never played TS2 or any of the console games, so this will be completely new. It's kind of hard to imagine a "Strangetown" without Supernatural. Just what is the difference for with and without?
  • aaronrogers8i3aaronrogers8i3 Posts: 555 Member

    The reason I cut supernatural is because the world already requires Seasons and I try to offer my worlds as to as many people as I can. The EP didn't really add much to the world either besides a Vampire and Werewolf.

    There'll definitely be aliens though. They're one of the main things in Strangetown. :D

    @IreneSwift It'll require patch 1.63. My game runs excellently with the patch :-)

    Your Strangetown is coming along so nicely, I've been watching it for a few weeks. Good job.

    I know some players have had no problems with the latest patches, but so many have report losing interactions, like chat with toddlers, the most recent one I read about. I'm not willing to risk losing any of the interactions I use constantly, so I'm staying where I am, where everything that matters most to me works.

    Do you post your worlds somewhere other than the exchange? If you have any older ones as beautiful as your Strangetown, I would love to have them.
