***



If you are trying to restore you maxis hoods in full: new copies of each hood can be found on you game installation directory. Most probably (depending on installation and system)

C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\UserData\neighborhoods

Simply copy (DO NOT CUT!) the folders there and paste them on the game directory

C:\Users\[yourname]\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods

The base game hoods are: N001-Pleasantview // N002-Strangetown / / N003-Veronaville

Make sure you don't have other hood folder with the same number, and DO NOT OVERWRITE. Delete (backup if needed) the old hood before copying the new one.

***

If you find any problem or mistake with the files, please inform any of the mods or leave a comment here. And again big thanks to akanwa and dragancaor for helping cloning and packing all the sims together.

We hope is useful! :)

Very cool idea.

I really like the "old relatives" part, since I'm a bit afraid of extracting maxis dead folks using simPE.

You wouldn't have much luck with most of the dead people in the basegame 'hoods anyway, their character files are almost all completely borkinated and can't be extracted. :/

Unless aledstange knows a way! I've recreated a few of them in CAS myself using the character image from SimPE as reference.

I think this is a great idea, also. It will be very handy. Thanks!

Obvious question is obvious, but... I am wondering if they come as a "clean slate" (no memories or relationships), with select memories/relationships, or with the exact memories and relationships that they have when you start playing them in the 'hood? From what's posted I'm thinking they come with a "clean slate" but it's always good to ask.

yes, all the files where extracted with simpe but then cloned in bodyshop, so the ending file is simply a simp2pack of the sims itself without all the background/linked data.

All the detailed info on each sim (like personality and such) will be added to the page as soon as possible. :)

Whoa! Are you kidding? This is AWESOME! This is just what I was looking for! Not only because I'm often too lazy to clone these sims everytime I want to re-start my neighborhood, but also because I needed models for my posters.

Especially the townies, which I think (unless I misunderstood your post) will also be uploaded here. Thank you so much!
aledstrange
Oct. 1st, 2008 08:17 pm (UTC)
*grins* Good to know i'll be helpful! ;)

and yes, the townies will be added as well, at least the most known, but if you ever need any one in particular just ask, we'll get it for you.

we'll be announcing farther updates on the page when done (i just didn't want to wait too long before start posting it :P )

I just joined the comm, but I wanted to say thanks so much for this! It's very helpful!

This is great! It will definitely be the place I send people to if anyone asks for copies of Pleasantview sims, plus the other hoods in the future.

The only other place you can get these sims is the Sims Estates site and they stupidly didn't upload clean version, just packaged them "as is" so they come with memories, etc, and will just kill a hood if placed in the game.

I know I'm not on staff or anything like that but I'd like to volunteer my services for sim extraction and packaging if you want any help. I've already extracted and written down the personalities + aspirations for the first generation Riverblossom Hills hood sims, so those are available to anyone who wants them. I also know where to find the first generation PV sims that have already been extracted and "fixed". So - crash test dummy reporting for duty, just PM me if you'd like the help :)

:) It would be awesome!! Thank you so much!! Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you so much for offering!! :D
i'll be contacting you. <3

As for the older sims, we'll see what can we fix, or not, but i wouldn't like to use someone's else work for upload. In any case, it could be good to know to add a resource.

and remember, though, the d/l page in particular is for members only, so anyone needing a file would have to join ;)

Thank again for all. :)

Thank you. Those characters that were not available for download from those listed on pages 01 and 02, might they become available?
aledstrange
Jan. 10th, 2010 06:46 am (UTC)
Yes, of course, I forgot about those missing files, tbh. I'll try to get them up asap. :)

Do you need anyone in particular to start with? (jic, the only ones that I can't manage to clone correctly so far are the Jacquets from Bluewater)

Thank you SO much! I know this is a year or two later, but I was just setting out to do the tedious task of figuring out how to extract characters and man, someone pointed me to here and I will be eternally grateful! Thank you again!

I just came across this today and I think it is very wonderful that someone took the time in doing this. I know this post may be a couple of years old.. D: I called myself looking very closely but in case I missed it, Do you happen to have Meadow Thayer for download? She wasn't really a pre-made sim sadly. Just a regular teen townie.
aledstrange
Jun. 2nd, 2011 12:31 am (UTC)
No, I'm sorry. :( We don't have townies for download.
(and I wish I could point you to somewhere else to get her, but don't know where either)

Oh yay!! Did you two ever work out a plan for some of the townies? Some of them make very pretty children! and I always loved the looks of Meadow Thayer

Thanks to missbubbles we may be having some townies for download soon. I'll make a post to the comm when they are available. :)

Sorry to be a bother but, I've tried a few times now to download the Tricou's but each time I try to install them it says it requires an uninstalled expansion pack. I have tried both the Nightlife version (I do have Nightlife) and the base but neither works. Any idea whats causing this?
aledstrange
Jul. 11th, 2011 10:41 pm (UTC)
No, sorry. So far no one has reported any problem with the files, and can't imagine what could it be. :/

Is it with the Tricou only? Have you try other sims, just to check? (maybe that file in particular is corrupt or something) and did you try installing them with Clean Installer? If not, I'd recommend you try, jic.

If that still doesn't work, let me know so I can try uploading another file. :)

Sorry, we don't have them, but you could check on Mara's sim archive too
http://maranatah.livejournal.com/106813.html
(I think they are on the Pet/Bv/NL, file along with the rest of the families from Pets)

Hi. Is Rainelle Neengia somewhere in that post? She doesn't seem to be included with the Tricous, and I can't find her by doing a quick CTRL+F with "Rainelle", "Neengia", or "Rainelle Neengia". If she really isn't there (assuming I'm not just overlooking her), do you know of anyone else who has extracted her?
aledstrange
Sep. 6th, 2012 12:04 am (UTC)
No, sorry, we don't have Rainelle here, but you could check Maranatah's archive. (She should be in the "Pets, BV and NL" file)

I'm one of those people who formed what could be considered a lame attachment to 3D models, yes, I became slightly attached to some of the pre-made families, Pleasantview and Strangetown particularly, but wanted my own custom 'hood. Thank you so much for sharing these. For anyone who is anal enough to *need* them to have matching data and info, I use the Sim Blender to make their aspirations, skills, interests, and hobbies, match their original copies. Quick and easy and makes continuing their story in a new neighborhood a breeze. Anyway, thanks so much! :)
