The Sims Bustin' Out World, Sim Valley (2022 Update)

UPDATE (10/3/2022): I have been working on this world on and off over the past two years. I have made a lot of changes and would like to share some updates.

This world will transform Sim Valley, the sims console neighborhood, into a full sims 3 world. The world will be set up how the Bustin' Out map is.

The time period takes place after the first console game, with Mom divorcing Malcom Landgraab. All sims from Bustin' Out will be available to play, as well as characters from other sims game to further flesh out the world.

Here are some pictures. All the main houses are finished, as well as their surroundings. I am now working on adding more details and appropriate lots. I am currently working on downtown, which includes Club Rubb, Toane's Gym, and Sutdio 8.

I have also experimented with creating my own custom textures and custom content. The birds-eye-view is just to give you an idea of where I taking things, but I continue to adjust and change some of the setup as I go. My goal is to be true to sims console aesthetics but also blending it with the sims 3.

I hope to be able to share pictures soon.

    Hi :)

    I loved Bustin' Out. I played it several times but not in ages. It'll be fun to see you build it up. Good luck!

    Here are some updates of how the world is going. The past couple weeks, I have been focusing on custom content. I just made custom roads today and tested them. It should be noted that Sims will walk on their right side when they are walking. So, they will walk on the sidewalk when the road is on their left side, but when the road is on their right side, they will walk in the grass. Not sure how much custom content I will create, but the next couple weeks, I will focus on building the world more. It's still very early on, but I figured I'd add some bird's eye view of the world, just so everyone can get an idea of my vision. I'm trying to map it out how the little map is in Bustin' Out when traveling.

    Hey @TombRaider_ I can't view these images. Idk if it's just my browser or my country's internet policies but wanted to let you know in case others have the same problem.

    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to finally give some updates on this project. I have worked on this here and there since I started and have been working on it more often these past few months. I would like to finally share some more updates after so long.

    Here is a sneak peek at some of the sims and inside Club Rubb. Check the original post for more details.

    This project looks awesome! I love bustin' out, played it for years alongside with urbz before having my pc.
    You're still working on it? I assume it's a lot of work if you're doing it all on your own, you're AWESOME, your work is AWESOME, the map looks great, the recreation of the lots and characters too, omg it hypes me so much!

    Oh my, this is taking me back!! I immediately recognized Dudley's trailer!

    It's so nice to see Mimi and Dudley in Club Rubb! I don't remember the name of that third Sim dancing as well, but feel like I can remember her artwork from the game case. :D For some reason, I have a very specific memory of playing in Club Rubb and a song from The Sims Superstar playing in the club LOL

    Love this project! Hope it is going well.
