Yes, you need to change the routing mask. You could either do this in CAW yourself, or by substituting your sopy of Sunset Valley for one that someone else has modded.

That sounds simpler than I thought. I don't even know where to download CAW, though, and we're really getting off-topic here, so please advise me where else to go asking for details or what kind of FAQ to read?

Mts has a caw forum under the top menu in the Create fan. Click on create-a-world under sims3. You will find lots of information, tutorials etc as stickies in there.
If you need more help, just make a post in that forum.

Is it alright if I make a response here?

I absolutely LOVE Alpine County. It's so beautiful, and big, and you've got literally everything in one place. You've got the creepy hood for those supernatural sims, the rich country club vibe hood with the bright green grass, the view looking out into the distance, the tropical resorts and the many, many clubs and bars....(maybe a little too many, for my liking.) It's detailed and when you follow your sims around to work and to other community lots you get this great feeling of playing an older version of GTA (minus the road killing and the gun shooting, LOL).

But keep in mind this is a huge world, so chances are you'll be experiencing some serious lag fun, especially if your computer isn't as high and all mighty as those monster PC's out there for gaming.

I've got a pretty good build (in can be improved to become better but I'm a broke college student lmao) BUT I've experienced some serious IslandParadiso lag (where the game freezes but time is ticking, plumbbobs are spinning and the steam from the mac and cheese pot is still...steaming) for a few seconds to a full minute before returning to regular gameplay.

I've also experienced some routing issues? Perhaps? I moved two of my sim families from Sunset valley to Alpine....one family is entirely unemployed while the other has one sim working. I try to invite the unemployed family over and for some odd reason the only sim that shows up is the sim you call...the rest of that household "can't make it" AKA GETS STUCK.

I'm not sure if that's a mod causing it (the only mods I have are a few from MTS and NRASS stuff as well as game FIXES) or perhaps a piece of CC. OR it's simply because m y computer can't handle the epicness of this world, haha.

Has anyone else experienced something like this?

How large is your household? It's possible that your processor just can't handle that many more sims being rendered on your lot. It's also possible that the game already gave other 'instructions' to the other sims. I also suspect that the game might do that, refuses to send sims over I mean, because that's supposed to make things more realistic since people IRL can't always do what you want, either. IOW it's supposed to make the game 'harder'. The other issues you're experiencing are likely just due to the world being too big to play well on your PC. But honestly troubleshooting your game should happen in a new thread and not this one.

The past year or so I have gone in the opposite direction, and enjoy playing smaller, sparsely populated rural worlds. I have a saved game going in Angel City, a smaller version of Los Aniegos, and someday I'm sure I'll get back to it eventually but I am less and less interested in attempting to play huge, sprawling worlds that are impossible to play long term without lag and issues because it's just not realistic to expect this game to be able to handle those on most people's PCs. So it all depends on how much you are willing to put up with I guess!

I have an amazing new sci-fi/ fantasy world to share with you. It is named SATURENORN. It has a custom moon and custom lighting and these, along with the lots, custom rabbitholes and plant recolors, all work together to create an atmosphere unlike any other world I have ever experienced. Amazing! Website and download link (at SFS): https://saturenorn.tumblr.com/

Thanks @attuned for the mention, the siggy link you sport in support of us, and your help testing! I'm working now on a populated save for it, using the custom skins made for the natives. Info at Saturenorn blog in siggy. (Desktop version shows much more than mobile version btw) Loads of pix, history of the project, who all was involved, requirements etc. is all there.
