Hello everybody!

A lot has happened in 25 years, but some new faces in town are stirring up rivalries and creating tension for the once happy families. Can anything be done to get the neighborhood feeling good again?

That was the desciption that was used in The Sims 2..
What are you going to do with them in The Sims 3? Well that's up to you!
After 2 months of hard work , i finally can present you Pleasantview.
*Please note that this remake is not a new CAW world, only the original houses from Pleasantview with some more created by me in an empty Sunset Valley layout*



First of all download ALL the parts(Part 1 ,Part 2, Part 3) and then rename them AGAIN to

PleasantView.part1.rar

Then open up the first one and extract normally. Then you can put the extracted file into you Saved Games directory!

[B]YourName/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves

I do believe that you must install this via the Launcher as you would any other world, not as a save file.

When I unstuffed the files I got a .sims3 file which I put into my saves folder. When I opened my game and clicked new the town doesn't show up. What am I doing wrong?

Aktnlive and neuroticnelly so sorry for the late answer.
All you need to do is download the three parts , rename them again to pleasant view and extract the file from the first part.
Then put that file in the saves folder not in the downloads folder!

At first, it was a MAJOR headache to install. But, now that I figured it out, it's quite cool. I never actually played the sims 2, but this is awesome.
To those who got stuck like I did, here's a little guide:
1) I know some people prefer 7zip (much like me), but you NEED WinRAR to install this. If you don't want to get viruses, remember: the real site to get the WinRAR trial version (since you have to pay for it) is a little site called rarlab.com
2)After installing WinRAR, get a folder and put ALL the files (Parts 1,2, & 3)into it.
3)Open the folder and right click on Part 1. There should be an option that says 'Extract Here'. Click it.
4) While extracting the files, it'll ask time to time again for the different part files. Click the button that makes it so you can see inside the folder (don't remember the name of the button), and click on the next part, then hit 'okay'.
5) After extracting the rar files, place the extracted file in the save folder, located in the sims 3 folder, located in your documents.
6) Start up the game. Now, instead of having to hit new game to use the map, it's already in an save thingy.

Now, before you start playing, remember, there aren't sims already in the house lots. To fix this, hit 'Edit Town', create some sims, and place them in the households yourself.

That ends my guide on how to install this, and a big THANK YOU to the guy/gal who made this.

Very cool contribution! I was sad to see that it was only Sunset Valley, though the recreated houses from Pleasantview seem spot on!

I was most excited to see the Pleasant family's house, because I remember spending the majority of my time with them during my time in the Sims 2. Got the game, went in, had no money yet wanted a lovely house from the get-go, and so led my Sim to move in with the Pleasant family!

Memories.

I loved playing Pleasantview in the sims 2 and until I saw this, I didn't realize just how much I missed it from the sims 3! Thanks so much! Can't wait to populate and use this world to create awesome stories and lives for my Sims.

I did everything correct, but on step 3, when I select to "Extract Here" on part 1, it says "No archives found". Assistance with that? :/

SO do we need to put the sims3 file into the saves or do we need to put it in a folder?
