Welcome to Alpine County by Western077!

This world offers something unique that no other has managed to offer so far, and that is variety. If like us you’re a fan of creating legacy families in your game, then Alpine County is the perfect world for your sims. The world has rural farms, dense forests, a bustling urban city with towering skyscrapers and sprawling suburbs around it. It even has a luxury spa retreat with a golf course, an abandoned haunted village and seaside mansion community.

So if you want to create a legacy which starts with a small boy who grows up on a farm and then moves to the city before marrying and settling down in the suburbs to bring up his children in a gated community and goes on vacations in a forest by a lake before retiring in a seaside golf resort…. well you can do all of that without ever leaving Alpine County!

Let’s play this out by starting with the country side farms.

Alpine County

Alpine County

There are 2 pre-built farm houses and 2 empty lots for you to move into in Alpine County’s rural farmlands. There is also a horse sanctuary and large Equestrian Center for those who want to make the most of owning a horse. If you’re seeking a little adventure, there is also an abandoned farmhouse with hidden treasures inside!

You have the forest and lake, with its own camping sites, modern lakeside houses and the traditional wood cabins ideal for weekend vacations!

Although it’s not connected to the sea (because it’s a lake) there’s plenty of fish for your sims to up their fishing skills and get themselves the catch of the day!

Now onto the suburbs. These are broken down into 5 communities, which we will go into further down.

Alpine County

1. The Gated Community: This consists of expensive mcmansions all built with a similar style around a private park. As the name suggests, the neighbourhood is gated and surrounded by a fence with a security gate to get it. It also comes with a private school and a luxury community pool with a gym.

The houses have been nicely detailed to give a perfect recreation of an American mcmansion community:

The community pool looks over the lake and forest, one of the many lots in the town with stunning views.

This community looks particularly good in winter if you have The Sims 3 Seasons expansion pack!

2. The middle-class suburban neighbourhood. For those who can’t afford the mcmansions in the gated community, but still seek the conformity suburban communities have, can enjoy this little development. It may not have a private spa, but it does have a cute small community park and it is a short walking distance to the local high school.

3. The slightly more affordable housing. Okay, so some of the houses here look a little run down, and it’s right next to the city dump and factories, but it does have a lot of charm. With rock-bottom prices, your sim can snap one of these little houses for as little a §5,000! It has a small park with playground facilities and it’s only minutes away from the cinema, shopping mall and mega-gym. So it’s not so bad for those just starting off life in Alpine County with a small income.

4. The golf course in Alpine County has its own spa, sea-side hotel with restaurant and faux-Mediterranean style mcmansions lining the side. Although most of the residents in the development are senior citizens enjoying their retirement.

This is also great for those sims who enjoy playing golf!

Screenshot-1218

The luxury hotel on the golf course is also perfect if your sims have plans for a big wedding. With its own wedding reception, large restaurant, outdoor dance floor with piano, wedding bedroom suite and the most stunning views to compliment your photos, the place was made for spectacular weddings!

Screenshot-1329

Screenshot-956

5. The final community is for those who like the Maxis-style neighbourhood with miss-matched houses, both modern, old and just weird.

Screenshot-1972

Now onto the city! Most of the buildings and streets are still unfinished, but we can get a good idea on what to expect by what is there now.

Screenshot-1272

Screenshot-1955 Screenshot-1991

Screenshot-1299

The city park infront of city hall overlooks the beach walk and the outdoor music arena on the beach, perfect for summer festivals.

Screenshot-1238

Screenshot-1239

Screenshot-1180

The small communities really work well with The Sims 3 Seasons Expansion Pack that gives it that cosy suburban feel.

Screenshot-1307

This is our favourite scene, it looks so much a like a real American suburban community, you just want to let your sims snuggle around the fire and stare out the window watching the snow fall around all the other houses!

Screenshot-1310

Now for the hidden gems that really make this world. These are little places that make the world feel like it has a rich history that wants to make you explore more!

Screenshot-1278

Screenshot-1232

Here’s a little taster to the abandoned village for you guys:

      Hi mikyv88,
      Alpine County is still being at beta stage, so unfortunatley it is not yet available for download. Although we have teamed up Western077 to try and help finish it before Sims 4 is out, so we can let you know when it is ready :)

      Thanks, I still have a few things to finish, mainly furnishing buildings that are empty and the commercial district is missing a few lots, but I hope to finish it in the next few months.

      If you like this world, you might want to try Los Aniegos by Coasterboi while you wait for Alpine County to be released. It is also very good at simulating real-life and it has no CC :)
      We’ll have a full review of it later this week too.

    Oh my god! This is seriously THE BEST world I’ve ever seen! I hope you guys finish it soon. You are truly talented. May I propose a little suggestion – A country club :(probably the best type of the lot would be resort?) Just a thought! I hope you share more photos of the progress. Once again – it’s stunning.

Will this world be populated? BTW this and los aniegos by Coasterboi are the best two worlds i’ve ever come across for sims 3. And I have done a LOT of research :)

    this is awesome! id love to test this. i can definitely commit to quite a bit of time trying it out. also to admin, consider hosting the world in a private but shared dropbox folder and inviting approved beta testers by email? would certainly save you time uploading it over and over again, and you can update the beta folder all at once. also, everyone can leave a text file in the dropbox folder with notes about issues they have had while playing it, and everyone else can see them and test it out.

    anyways, i hope i am not too late to join in on the action. thanks

    Downloaded the world a couple days ago and I love it! I’ve fooled around with CAW and I know how time consuming and frustrating it can be and it just amazes me to see what others can do. All of your time and effort definitely shows so kudos to you! Outstanding job I must say!

    If I may, I would like to make one request…Could you make a few more larger sized lots in the farmland section? I don’t know if anyone else does this or not, but I like to have my families live next to each other since they all farm and have horses, and having more lots beside each other would be great if you don’t mind and of course find the time to do so. :)

    But all and all i just wanna thank you for taking time out of your schedule to make these truly remarkable worlds for anyone to download. I know I greatly appreciate it!

    YOU ARE KIDDING ME! LIKE… My hardcore sims spirit is literally gasping after breah right now. I’m so ecstatic for this release, unlike any ea-made creations!! Ok. I admit, you’ve made me utterly speechless! I’ve followed the progress and it’s been a while since I checked in here, and I must say – it has only improved by already far exceeding standards!! When this is finished, there’s no doubt it will be my favorite sims 3 World of all time! It truely deserves a capital of W-orld. Just this proves how much time can ripen a craft to a truely remarkable result in the end. It’s absolutely stunning.. I all of a sudden feel so willing to donate you something for the effort, straight oppositely to what EA does.. Do you allow people to donate through paypal or similar?

    I will patiently wait for this World. I don’t care what anyone else says… only time has brought it to what it so far, so it just needs to ripen even further to compass that rare but purest perfection! *squeack* :3

I know you wont be making those but it needs to have deep level seas to make them. would be really cool if i can add that in!

      Okay, so that literally took forever and then “failed to upload”. So luckily assuming nothing EA makes is guaranteed to work, I also uploaded it on to MediaFire, which also was really slow (so I went to bed as it was 3:00am in the UK and only at 53%). But now it’s done, you can get it here: http://www.sims3createaworld.com/alpine-county-complete/

    Hi :-)

    Since nighttime I am looking in the exchange for Alpine County.
    Its THAT world I was waiting for years!!!

    I am sooooo excited to test it!

    Now my question: Is it already uploaded now?
    Because I am not really sure, if I can get it from Germany the same time, like for example in the USA…

    Anyway, western077, that is such a great work!!!! Unbelieveable! When I look at the pictures it is even better than an EA-world in my opinion!!! Really really great work!

    I just stopped by to say that the mediafire download worked for me and it looks like the world works perfectly so far. The only problem I’ve noticed is that when starting a new game in the town or moving sims in, those little bubbles that mark empty houses and lots don’t show up? Not a big deal, because you can still move people in and everything, just wanted to let you know. It’s beautiful, thank you so much for doing all this :)
