Wow, that`s beautiful! I place weeds like this all over my neighborhood in my CAW project and I know how hard it is to place them all one by one. Is there any way to place a lot of objects at once?

Default Point Ouerbacker Testing Version 7



Now released- Point Ouerbacker Testing Version 7! Ouerbacker has graciously allowed me to finish Reyes County for him, and so here it is!

Point Ouerbacker
Quote:
Point Ouerbacker is a prominent cape and tourist destination on the Pasimific coast of Northern Calsimfornia. It is located in Reyes County, a convenient hour east of Santa Mira and two hours north of Sim Francisco.

As the fishing industry and homogeneity that once dominated the area has faded away, new demographics, new religions and new economies have moved in. Point Ouerbacker now struggles to define itself between the secure, stagnant old world of its birth, and the uncertain new world of tomorrow.





Places to See
Quote:
  • Seacliffe- a small summer vacation spot on the shores of Quarter Moon Bay, popular with folks from Santa Mira and Sim Francisco.
  • Landgraabs Estero- A large brackish bay east of Point Ouerbacker.
  • Freslock Bay- a small town once known for its fishing industry.
  • Point Ouerbacker- A peninsula divided into ranches, farms and Point Ouerbacker National Seashore.

More pictures here




Of note:
Quote:
  • 85 Lots (wow!), split amongst 45 residential lots and 40 community lots.
  • Lot assigment is arranged so that sims will be concentrated in Freslock Bay.
  • 1 Base Camp for your sims to visit & snag some sweet foreign booty >:3
  • 3 dive lots, though these are in testing as the depth of the water may not work.
  • Thematic mixture of Marin County, Monterey and general West Coast Americana.
  • Also slightly inspired by paintings of Andrew Wyeth, Grahame Sydney, Edward Hopper, Grant Wood and other Regionalism artworks.
  • Not everything in this world is shiny and new; in fact, most of it isn't.
  • All lots are furnished!
  • Minimal rabbitholes! The majority of community lots are built and enterable, with the exception of the Hospital.
  • Currently uses a slightly altered Sunlit Tide's .ini files, but rest assured- there will be adjustments later on (especially to the water)! I love the way the sun looks in this world.
  • I suggest you turn off snow for a more authentic experience.
  • Flybys and other things will still need to be finished.




Your task (if you wish to take it on) is to:

Quote:
  • Test the world for routing and lag. There are a few outstanding issues involving boats and town population sizes.
  • Load the world quickly with sims and stress test the world. An easy tutorial is located here .
  • Find any other issues.
  • Take pretty pictures! Tag them with "Reyes County" for easy following.

* There currently are routing issues if your sim decides to travel from the Art Gallery by boat, or from Quarter Moon Beach by boat.
* There are also issues with file sizes & crashing with lots of sims and Id like to see if those issues are replicated by other users.

Quote:
  • Sims 3
  • World Adventures
  • Ambitions
  • Late Night
  • Pets
  • A decent computer

Quote:
Unfortunately, this world requires a tiny bit of CC.

You will also need Jynx's Rabbithole rugs (Found here ).

Quote:
  • Showtime
  • Generations
  • Seasons
  • Supernatural
  • University Life
  • Island Paradise


Things not Required:

Other Suggested Mods:
Quote:
  • I also suggest you get NRaas' MasterController, StoryProgression, Register, and Overwatch if you want a generally better game. (Found here )
  • Shimrod's Townies out on the Town mod will force sims to visit community lots- meaning fewer empty lots! (Found here )


Happy testing!

Looking amazing! One immediate problem I noticed, is the difference in colour of the water between the world and the DT. It's very noticeable, and if you're on a lot, like the Basecamp Seacliffe Motel, you can really tell where it changes. But I don't know if this is something that can be fixed

Yup, this is an issue with the INIs, and will be fixed at a later date

It's largely caused by the use of a distant terrain to mask the other distant terrains extending under the water. Aka the classic to kill a fly tale.

One thing I want people to test in particular is how well the world runs a few weeks in with as many houses filled.

I've had some issues, but it could just be that my computer is old.

wow, I'd test it for sure but my computer is a dinosaur. From the pictures is it stunning and I can more than appreciate the work in it and the atmosphere.

Most of the job has be done by Ouerbacker and yes it was such a shame he had RL issues, but that's the way it goes I guess. I love jje1000 is willing to put a lot of effort into someone elses big project like this. I have tested it a few times when Ouerbacker was having exams and crashed cumputers and what not. I don't even remember, I just wonder why it never happens to me *knock on wood*.

Yup, the majority of the sculpting and lot building was done by Ouerbacker. I added in a distant terrain and did a whole lot of bugtesting, and also completely redid most of the Community lot interiors + a few new lots here and there. There are some issues like routing (borked by Island Paradise) and the like that are still problematic, and will need to be addressed in the future.

The way I see it, it was kind of like finding a beautiful old car in a dusty garage, and fixing it up so that it could finally shine

On another, how are people faring? Are there any issues encountered so far?

Love the analogy. And I agree, I'm just happy someone got permission to finish this! I'll test more after work tomorrow, as I didn't find any time today.

I founded that when I moved a whole lot of sims in using NRaas' StoryProgression, the whole game tended to crash after a few day's worth of progression. I'd like to know if it's:

1.) An issue with the world- that the large file size (I have no idea how it got so big) is overloading the RAM
2.) An issue with my computer, since it's a bit old
3.) A problem with NRaas, some of the options have occasionally caused some issues with my other savegames

This should be a quick test to see if this issue appears on other computers.

I see, thanks for clarifying. I never use SP, but I'll consider getting Twallan's to test this.
