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
PleasantView.part2.rar
PleasantView.part3.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


Please note that the town in empty..
I'm not going to upload a populated version because I suck at making Sims.. so it's up to you to tell their stories

Great work on this! And very hard I guess... But not enough appreciated by the community. It seems like TS3 were building a brand new generation of the simmers without nostalgical feelings to the previous games TS and TS2. Thank you, for me this is a must-have neighborhood for TS2 fans.

Town looks great... but I didn't get something in the description... is the town unpopulated? Because I get an empty town.

Also, I tried re-downloading after getting some kind of error and now I can't unzip/rar it without a corrupt file message. Ah well. The town looks great, though I'll try again tomorrow.

I really like the way you set up the rabbit holes in the community. Is there anyway to download the hood and rabbit holes without the houses?

If not, I will try to get everything and delete the houses. This is wonderful work, I really like it. Thanks alot for sharing!

If you are looking for original Sims 2 families, I have been getting mine at the Sims 3 forum. I think he has done a wonderful job with them.

Hi there, what an awesome thing you have done. Unfortuneatly I am having troubles extracting this to. I have downloaded all parts put them into a folder then extracted them to documents/sims3/saves but I keep getting file courrupted and no files to extract. I am using winrar. I have looked in the saves folder and it says pleasantview is in there but is not showing in game. Any help? I will try again, as I do not like to be defeated lol!!
#46 Old 11th Sep 2009 at 3:53 AM
Yay, I finally got it to work!

Use WinRar, extract Part 1 first. When it asks for Part 2, browse for it and click 'Save' then 'OK'. Next it's gonna ask for Part 3. Do the same and you'll get PleasantView.sims3 which is around 31 MB.

It is a Save game so don't look for it under the Sunset Valley dropdown menu. It's one of the 4 slots where your saves are. Good luck!

I followed all the instructions and successfully extracted the file. But where do you put the "PleasantView.sims3" file? Is it incompatible with macs? I put it in the user ->downloads chain, but it did not show up in my game. Help!!!!
