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


Please note that the town in empty..

This is excellent!!

I have spent most of the last 2 days recreating some of the families and placing them in their homes. It's been fun seeing the neighbourhood reform.

I have so far completed;

Goths
Pleasant
Caliente
Burb
Lothario


It's just what I needed after accidentally deleting my favourite neighbourhood recently. Thank you very much for your hard work.

I've tried this three times! Here is what I've done. First downloaded all three separately to WinRar. Then saved to desktop. I go to open #1 in WinRar. Hit 'Extract to'. Path is: My name/Documents/Electronic Arts/TheSims3/Saves. Then it extracts about 25% before I get a box telling me that "you need the following volume to continue extraction". It shows part 2. Continue to do the same with part 3. I get 2 WinRAR error messages. One says "No files" & the other "you need to start extraction from a previous volume." What's wrong????

koololdster you propably doing something wrong...
When it asks you for the second and the third part just hit the button browse and select them...
If you are doing this and you are getting this error you mentioned try downloading the parts again....
Sometimes the server overloads and corrupts the files...

We have:
DownTown Block

I combined four rabbit holes here:
The Police Station
The Spa
The Theatre
The BookStore

You can see it in the picture above
Dinner Square

In this one i combined the Restaurant and the Grocery Shop
Again above is the image...
PleasantView High School And Gym

I thought that these two(Hugh School,Stadium) are great together so there ou have them
PleasantView Hospital And Research Center

These two (Hospital,Science Center)are great together too...they match
Finally we have the PleasantView Space Center (Combined Space Center and Criminals Hide Out) and the PleasantView Plaza which is not a rabbit hole but i mention it like one....you can check their pics below

I had problems with that too. What worked for me was to go into the building in edit and remove part of the fence/shrub back to the patio area so the Sim could leave on the sidewalk. Hope that helps if you want a work around!

this is wonderful. The town I had created all my own since the game came out bit the dust(no backup) and this is helping me move on from it

I have noticed a few sims getting stuck at the journalism/business career tower. Had to remove some of the hedge fence.

Amazing effort. I followed the instructions as written. When I load the game and select the new Pleasantview, the neighborhood details are "elevated" above the land (the only way I can describe it)... the lots hover above the terrain. I had this happen with another new neighborhood. Any clues?



Thanks again for all your hard work.
