So it occurred to me that ive gotten every Sims 2 lived-in home from the three base neighbourhoods done to at least 90% completion. In addition to completeing the entire Tutorial neighbourhood, and everything in Four Corners except the townies and NPCs, seems my goal isnt THAT far out of reach.

  • (Quote) This actually isn't quite true, the Sims 3 worlds have quite a lot of back and forth relationships, but it depends on the world. Some worlds are clearly cranked out quickly under an EA suit's whip, some have a lot of hidden love to them. Th…
  • (Quote) I cant help with finding the file itself, as other guides do that better (look up increasing Sims 2's resolution, there are plenty of guides out there) but once you find the graphicsrules file, you have to open it with notepad, and search f…

  • (Quote) this is a result of modern hardware not being recognised by the game, it thinks you have a low end PC so it limits the amount of people you can invite. There is a permanent solution by editing the graphicsrules file, the same way that max r…

  • (Quote) Yeah, the game at one point in development would generate brand new townies for custom hoods, with a Sims 1-ish message about holding on while they get made and 'move in', but in the final version, every custom hood will use Pleasantview's …
  • Goopy is famous enough that he features in Sims 2 PS2, Sims 3 Monte Vista, and has a exwife and daughter in Barnacle Bay. Kind of amazed he isnt in Sims 4 yet. Sims 2 PSP probably has the best townies; they all have the most bizarre backstories and…
  • if you think about it in Sims 3 terms, Darren is an Adult, while Cassandra is a Young Adult, so thats a big age gap.. I'd rather send ol Dirk to uni, and have him one day revive Darleen with the resurrecting phone, after he discovers one at uni via…
  • (Quote) She has +10 for males, 0 for females. So its not too much of a stretch if we go by EA's established values. Most of the premade playable sims in Pleasantview dont have the usual +10/-10, only a few are fully straight with established dislik…
  • Apollo Bloom from Bridgeport, no contest.
  • I eventually stopped giving my sims the MP3 players and handhelds as they would bust them out at the most random times, and it took so long to put the things away. Now I typically only have them on people that they 'fit', like handhelds on gamer car…
  • (Image) There are three of these homes in Veronaville, all with the exact same terrain paint; its clear the developers made one, then placed copies, then slightly edited them. One of them was used to create one of the four family bin families, as i…
  • I looked through the rest of the lots; there are only two homes on the english side with all the things sold; one is a starter home, one of the three near identical lowest-cost buildings, the other is a home near it thats too small for Goneril. Im g…
  • (Quote) Whats odd about Sims 2 PSP's Bella saying that, is that in that official interview she says the opposite and that she really DOES love him. Im guessing her memories are still muddy in TS2 PSP's incarnation (or its just a different dev team …
  • (Quote) I will be making proper threads for these neighbourhoods once im done with the main content for each, like I did for Four Corners. I need to find my Sims 2 Tutorial neighbourhood remake thread and fix it up too. Im kinda using this thread a…
  • Continuing my streak of Veronaville content (Image) The Monty Ranch is almost complete, just needs some edgy teen posters and piles of trash in the boys rooms, some CAS on the beds, a few plants in the garden to replace the cactuses that just do n…
  • The roach memory appears with every single attempt a sim makes to get rid of them too, so its not uncommon to have another member try to stomp one 9 times in a row while you directing another, then come back to...9 red roach memories in a row -.-
  • (Quote) 'No other ancestors are included.' Well, I'll be including them, if anyone wants to add them to this (Master Controller and other such mods will be needed to link up the family tree stuff). Also, im still going to finish my own Pleasantview…
  • Oberon's side of the family isnt as royal, but I like to think the Gossamer line had an important role in the fae kingdom Momentilla Bramble (Image) Momentilla looks rather comical, and I wanted to work in a black sheep bad fairy into the family …
  • Its one of the secret options unlocked with testing cheats enabled, you have to shift click the batbox with the ghost sim made selectable, sometimes it takes a few tries due to how fast the game tries to get rid of selectable dead sims, but this is …
  • the graphics rules thing has only broken my games and made them worse, or not run at all. Manual editing of the graphicsrules ini always serves me better. You basically just have to make everything use high settings no matter what, and change all in…
  • The Summerdream Ancestors: Creating sims out of nothing more than headshots and leftover data. In Sims 2, the three starter neighbourhoods for the most part have the playable sims all with an extensive family tree, showing parents and grandparents, …
  • (Quote) The Lot Debugger, aka Batbox, a highly useful mod, has the ability to make graves out of ghosts that still exist but have no tombstones. Doesnt work if their data has been shredded however.
  • I have just completed the exterior of the Summerdream family home, 71 Bard Boulevard. The inside needs a few tweaks with CAS still. (Image) This home has one of the stranger entrances out there. Also, most of the entrances are archways instead of …
  • Well, we could have gotten a young PT9 and Jenny with a child or toddler Johnny, in a 'eternal holiday' situation like with the Capps, Burbs and Pleasants, as part of a theoretical world designed to really go nuts with the seasonal lot markers. This…
  • I wish we got ALL the original premade TS2 families in Sims 3, we got all three from Veronaville, everyone but the Oldies from Pleasantview, and quite noticeably missed out on the Grunt family from Strangetown, along with the Smiths (understandable,…
  • (Quote) Kaylynn doesnt even look remotely attractive or like her TS2 self when aged up, but this isnt unique to her, Bella also looks a bit weird aged up, as does Gunther and Michael. The only returning character from 2 that doesnt look weird compa…
  • (Quote) The Capp's ugly looks carried over to Sims 3 even. Cordelia came out with Consort's nose and gaunt face xD
  • Found a disc drive in an old computer that was compatible with the new one, so im back in business! (Image) Capp Manor with a small change to the central pathway, just to have sims actually USE the stairs. Without those little fences for the new f…

  • I have a long WIP of retrofitting Lunar Lakes with ITF content. It extends into the attached University world too, where I consider it to be the same university but far in the future. Given my habit of my PCs exploding on me though, its been a dorma…
  • (Quote) Yeah, hes got a value of 0 for males and either -2 or -10 for females (My database I made is on an external right now) Sims 2 PSP explained it as him never getting over his exgirlfriend, who he was basically pulled away from by the Beakers.…
