Alpine County Beta Players (Members Only)

This post is for reporting bugs or errors that any Beta testers encounter. For lot furnishing go here.

Screenshots of problems are really helpful, you can upload images by going to your account dashboard, go to “Media” and click on “Add New” (or use the grey banner at the top of your screen and click on “+ New” and select “Media”).

Any problem, no matter how small is great to know. I won’t have the chance to play in each lot and visit everything, so my hope is that the Beta testers will find the problems simply by playing the game in their own style.

Detected Issues/Errors so far:

again, placing houses, either this was a cc item changed, or it moved over when you rotate lot to fit in your world.  if your giving out beta of the world, it probably be easier for people to build on the world lot, causing this stuff to move.

this is an issue if your placing houses from bin, it best to go back and line up terrian, takes maybe a minute longer but looks better.

    1. Hey, the world was exported with the latest patch installed and the updated CAW tool, so you probably will need to update the game. Let me know how you get on :)

  3. Hi turistas, thanks for uploading the photos. I’m not sure why the window disappears on the gold course lots, I’ll look into that. The lot edges can be smoothed out quite quickly, i’ll do that on all the lots before uploading the final copy!
    Which area are the prices acting weird? I did manipulate the prices because I wanted some houses to be more affordable, but it sounds like I made some way too cheap!

    I’ll put the resort desk inside, that will be a lot change error ;P

      Some of the houses in the gated community had negative prices for me as well. You can look into that.

    Hi!
    First, I want to say again that this world is so gorgeous and it reminds me of Cali and where I live. *_*
    I found a couple of things so far, but I don’t know if they have been corrected already in the new file.
    I also hope that I uploaded my pictures correctly. :) I uploaded 5.

  6. i got confused uploading a pic so its floating on this site somewhere besides here. sorry about that. but its one if the starter houses, with the black big lemon. the bed should be turned around. personally i don’t think its something you have to fix, but i thought i should let you know.

    http://www.sims3createaworld.com/?attachment_id=3036

    and for the starter houses, do you want the garages to be closed off, or u just haven’t added the doors yet? b/c there are things there the sims would use. i don’t know if that’s what you intended or not.

    and sorry i don’t have a pic of this now, i’ll uploaded later when i figure out how to upload on this page, but the colonial house without the interior done, the one lining against the mountains w/ the partly furnished house on its left, the one part of the walls on the left is missing a roof. sorry if i’m not explaining it clearly, ill get a pic up soon.

    and also, the beach lot in front of the stage seems to have a bit of routing issue. i would tell the sim to go swim in the ocean and they would move toward it, change into the casual clothes from their swim wear, turn around and run up past the stage and to the sidewalk, turn to their right and run behind the stage and run back down to the ocean.

    and this might just be a personal issue with me, but as far as going to the beach, the colonial houses, and the jungle reefs resort(??) i feel the subway on the school lot is a nuisance b/c the sims would take a taxi, stop at a subway station to take it to the school, get off the subway, and get back into a taxi, when honestly they could’ve stayed in a taxi and not wasted time with that. when they get out the taxi to take the subway to the school, their destination wasn’t that far away from when they got out the taxi…. sorry if thats confusing. like i said i might be the only one to find it an issue, so i understand if you don’t bother with it, but i don’t know how others feel, so i thought i should let you know. :)

    1. Hey Erianna!

      Don’t worry, only the author of the post can edit it (or Admin) so either one of us can stick it on the post. Do you know which lot that happened in? I don’t recognise it from the inside lol

      I think that colonial house you’re referring too has a problem with the roofing tiles, so I decided to just leave it haha

      I’ll look into the routing issues with the beach stadium, not sure wy it’s doing that! Thanks for letting me know about the subway, that’s quite a problem! I’ll get rid of the subway on the school as I imagine that’s were the issue is coming from! Let me know if you find any more :D

    2. about the missing roof for the colonial house, i realized thats where a fireplace was supposed to go so never mind about that. and for the bed, im not in game right now so i can’t give you the address, but the house is right across from the park, at the corner.

    the white stuff leaking from the walls, i think it’s just floor tiles cause i saw that lot and i just deleted all the white stuff and it went away and didn’t come back, so i’m pretty sure it is just floor tiles

  7. Hello! Wow love love LOVE this world. By far my favourite ever :D

    western077 – I was wondering if you could possibly make the ocean deeper to allow users to place diving lots (and also colour the terrain to sand). I did test placing diving lots and the weeds unfortunately extrude from the ocean – and the terrain is also a dry grass colour. These are hopefully easy to change in CAW :D it would be awesome if you could do that! :)

    Many thanks – Aimee

    1. Thank you! :D
      I can definitely change the terrain paint to sand, but I have a horrible feeling that the depth is maxed out and the only other solution is to increase the sea level (which is too late now as it would flood the city). I had hoped to have something from every expansion pack, but might have to miss out on diving spots :(
      I’ll see what I can do still though (hopefully I’m wrong!)

  8. When i loaded the game to move in my family, the balloon icons were’nt there for any of the lots. The only way I could move in was by clicking on the house itself. I’m not sure why it is doing that. I removed my mod and tried again but the same thing happened. It wouldn’t let me take a screenshot of it either.

    1. Hey vharvey87,

      I think everyone else is also getting this same issue (me included), I’m not yet sure why it is doing that yet. I’ll need to research the Sims 3 forum! I’m not sure if screenshots work for the for town views either so no need to worry about that :D

    Thank you for allowing me to test your beautiful world , I really wanted to play this. However it seems it is too large for my computer to handle I guess . I keep getting continual crashing after only minutes into game . This also occurred with los angieos and st. clarie , so I guess it must be the size of the maps. I will look into buying more ram and maybe that will help. I really want to play this world .

    1. Hey yesme88, I’m sorry to hear that :/ the world is quite huge and even my computer struggles with it so it probably is the ram. I hope you get it to work eventually!

    Some of these may be just my own game problems (I have tons of mods) but in case it is not, I’ll post about it. Oh and, is it not possible to upload multiple images in one post?

    – 2 school buses showing; could be because there are 2 different schools
    – work carpool is very far from home; because the other 2 school buses took its space I guess
    – no street/house names (intentional? WIP?) –> would be nice to have it to identify the locations
    – food merchant(s) unable to “browse” their list? But can buy stuff.
    – browse option not working (bookshelf, food merchants etc) but can “read” and “buy”
    – flickering terrain paint in some random places (definitely not because of the rain)
    – intersection terrain painting is sorta weird…
    – on a higher terrain level, the sim sinks in a bit (the shoes)

    The horses/wildlife in a city is kinda…

    1. Thanks for loggint those errors Kotsuki! I’m going to get rid of one of the schools, so that should hopefully fix the issue with the school buses. As for the others, I’ll have to look into them when I have time. Let me know if you find any more! :D

  13. Hi! Attached please find the picture of my family :) I did find some problems, but I have only played it once.

    1. Taco Bell has a grocery register, instead of a food register.
    2. The Sims walk into the sides of the lots on building, I believe the “front of lots” need to be set.
    3. With that, the houses “front of lots” need to be set as well. I noticed that the mailboxes on the lots need to be set to the front of the lots.. They are located in strange areas of the lots.

    I’ll keep you posted if I find more!

    Thanks!
