The City of New York is one of the most fascinating metropolitain areas in the world – a melting pot of different cultures, western lifestyle and capitalistic daydreams.

Yet downloaded over 2000 times, the First Beta of the “Big Apple” brings the City of New York as a fully playable, immersive urban experience into your Sims 3 game.

 Are you ready to dive in this authentic urban jungle adventure?
The current First Beta features a yet very detailed Manhattan with dozens of high qualitative deco buildings, making it possible to create a real urban atmosphere.
Feel the vibrant spirit of the city while your Sims wander through the streets or take the subway to reach their destination in time.
Have you every dreamed about living in the heart of a real city? Whether you prefer penthouse or townhouse – there are many lots to fit your needs.

New York would be nothing without it’s famous landmarks. Enjoy the view over the Skyline on top of the Empire State Building or go ice skating at Rockefeller Center Lower Plaza.
Central Park turns into a winter-wonder land when the snow falls.
Visit hotspots like Times Square and dive into the pulsating city life
The city features 4 boroughs in total: A big Manhattan in the middle of the map with a small part of the Bronx up North and a large part of Brookly and Queens to the East. A small piece of New Jersey is also part of the map, but of course not part of the City of New York.
The terrain is based on a real map and was only altered when absolutely needed. Due to mapping limitations, the city will not be as huge as it is in real life, but yet big enough to hold a lot of details.

The borough of Manhattan  features the following districts at the moment:

  • Financial District
  • Tribeca
  • Little Italy

  • Chinatown
  • SoHo
  • Westvillage
  • Times Square
  • Upper West Side 
  • Upper East Side
  • Harlem

I am doing my best that they will all be fully recognizable, meaning they all have unique buildings and of course the according landmarks. This will also be the case for the other boroughs to come.

  4. You’re right, landscaping is still left untouched, as I am focusing on getting Manhattan ready.

    It is unfortunately still far from complete, as there ist still so much to do…

    Please be patient! :)

  5. The only initially desired world in all of my long sims life! One world : FINALLY :D
    Yet here’s plenty nyc cities out there created, but this, this is surpassing any of my envisioned standards of mine I’ve ever had, by far! This makes me overly excited, delighted and anxious – all at once.. But in a patient way. Lol.

    As for the ripen stage of perfectly compiled and refurbished completion : it requires all construction time conceivable. So don’t rush it. As the creator I’m certain you out of everyone, if anyone, is mostly aware of this. If that came across incorrectly, I can assure I wasn’t trying to imply such rudeness.

    I bet this is set to release in aug-sep, or is it perhaps sooner? Is there any beta versions out yet? ;)

  6. Hi Horus,

    Maybe this is the wrong place to comment for your notice. But, I’ve checked your blog and must say I’m really impressed with all your work. And especially the CC. You’ve elevated my expectations yet once again.

    Have a nice day :)

  7. Hi Mohjit0,

    I don’t think I afford that much of them, but thanks for all those compliments!
    You are right, I am planing to release a next beta in aug-sep, coming along with a lot of changes.

    Have a nice day, too :)
