The Sims 3 Alpine County -BETA

In preparation for the Beta version, I thought I would make a post just for those who helped with the world (so this post is locked for Contributors only). Make sure your accounts have the correct e-mail address before Sunday as Admin will be sending the world through WeTransfer directly to you. Please don’t send/share/give the world to anyone else or upload it to the exchange, I’m trusting you all to be the only users until I can release it properly.

As this post is hidden to everyone else, you can post any errors or bugs that you encounter in the comments section. I have a feeling that I will need to reduce the amount trees for it to run more smoothly, but your computers may handle it better. (Make sure you have all the expansion packs before installing too)

We can also update each other on the remaining lots that need furnishing and suggest names/descriptions for lots that are currently missing on most, all sugestions welcome as always :)

I’ll post a few more photos updates before Sunday, and it would be great if you could take some screenshots of the world with your sims in it too (if you use the TAB key it goes into cinematic mode to make it look better). But for now, this is it:

Screenshot-1972

In preparation for tomorrow, I’m trying to get the gated community up to scratch as much as possible. All the houses are still unfurnished as they’re just so huge, but their exteriors will at least be complete! Here’s a snapshot of the gated community :)

And here’s a general snapshot :)

I’ll also try and get more done for the farmland -like fences and vegetation!

_________________________________________________________________

If you have already got the world, enjoy it for now :) Just play as you normally would and test as much as you can out -go to school, dinner, clubbing, on vacation, swimming, golfing, camping, to cafes, gym, junk yard, grave yard, grocery shopping or to the park (whatever you want) and let me know if there are any issues with any of them.

I’ll give full details of each lot later, some I might have to do myself as I have a very specific idea of what I want them to look like.

But for now -go and play Sims! :D (oh and take lots of screenshots too!)

Here are some of mine :)

  1. So excited :D And if you wish, I could actually test this world on two different computers. I have an older PC (the computer I play on) which can be kinda slow at times, but it does run my game to the point that it’s very much playable. My other computer is a newer MacBook Pro, which I typically only use for blogging and social networking, but if it could be of any help, I could install The Sims 3 and all of the expansion packs to it. I’m not sure that the Mac OS would make any difference, but it is a better computer.

    1. Hey Sadie, don’t worry about trying it on both computers. I’m assuming that if people have all the expansion packs they will also need to have a pretty decent computer to play the game, I just want to make sure that even powerful computers can cope with it!

    2. okay! my computer is probably a lot better then I think it is.. it’s just the fact that it’s a few years old and it can get slow. But my game does usually run pretty smoothly, aside from occasional lag and freezing, even when I play with a larger family in a large, highly detailed mansion. Even with all expansion packs, and a ton of CC and mods. I’ll see how my computer handles this world on sunday :)

  2. I’m glad you’re all excited :D
    Just out of curiosity, can I ask which neighbourhood you guys are planning on moving your sims family in?
    That’s out of:

    Gated Community
    Maxis Community
    Middle-class Colonial Houses
    Farmland
    Forest/Lake
    Golf Club
    City center
    Low-income area
    Abandoned Village
    or a random property somewhere else?

    The world won’t be completely finished, as it’s only a Beta, but I can at least try and finish as much as possible for the areas you will be using when I work on it tomorrow :)

    Also, just a side note, as it will be unpopulated, you’ll need to move in a few other families to fill in the world.

    1. The gated community is one of the biggest selling points for me. I’ve been waiting a long time for a world to capture the kind of affluent cookie-cutter mansions that seem to be everywhere in my area. :D Also the country club and downtown look like a lot of fun. By the way (I guess we can move this discussion here), I got your apartment lot and will make the small student-ish studio as soon as possible. I’ll be away most of the weekend but I should have the completed lot sometime early next week. Also please don’t hesitate to let me know when any other lots need to be finished, I’m more than happy to help (and, I’d love to build something a little more posh).

      Can’t wait for the beta! I’m using to filling unpopulated worlds myself so it shouldn’t be a problem.

      I too will be moving my Sims into the gated community =) but I’ll also buy the lakehouse on top of the mountain as a weekend vacation retreat.
      I asked Amy and she’s moving hers into the city, she wants the massive penthouse lot overlooking the sea.

      Let me know if we can help with anymore lots!

      When you try to upload it, does it say export failed. If so just go onto the game launcher and then go onto, installed content, and then click run without custom content, then it should work, I had that problem with mine :)

    3. Hey asongforxx,
      That was quick! Don’t worry about it, there’s still lots of lots that need furnishing so this won’t delay the beta in any way :) I don’t know if it’s of any help still, but I uploaded the photos of where the lot is in the city on the media library.

      Thanks for doing the lot too btw! :)

    4. I’ll be moving my sims into the gated community as well, the family I created is a wealthy celebrity family. :) Though I may also want to do some gameplay in the middle class community as well. I’m thinking in the next couple days I’ll be making a couple of other sims to be my sims friends and family outside the household XD

    5. The gated community’s exteriors only has 2 left to do -I might not get them finished in time, but they’re all also unfurnished I’m afraid. The park is now ready too though, so it should all look nice from outside :D

    6. I’m so excited to play this world :D I will eventually build my own mega mansion in Alpine County for my sims. Typically I furnish mansions with a ton of master suite, store, and custom content for my personal gameplay. But I would love to see what I could do furnishing a mansion with only base game and expansion pack items if you’d like me to help furnish a couple mansions :)

      The gated community looks stunning! The whole world looks stunning!

    I was just wondering if I could make a small video promo of the world, like a trailer of it, showing all the different communities and Sims doing stuff in it, and if you think it’s any good, I could post it up on YouTube, only if you wanted to, and if it were any good. Just a suggestion.
    Otherwise I think I’ll be moving my family into the Low Income Area, as a starter home and try earn them some money so that I can eventually buy a nicer house, either in the farming area or in the country club area. :)

    1. Absolutely! That would be awesome, I was hoping to make one myself, but there’s no way I”l have enough time so you’re very welcome to do it. I’d probably wait for the finished version to come out so that it doesn’t show any unfinished parts.

      The low income lots are all ready for you -fully furnished! But the golf lots are still unfinished, although they’re all the same :)

      Admin will be emailing it to you using your account emails, I’m planning on handing it over to them tomorrow morning UK time, so depending on where you live you might get it earlier or later in the day :)

      I’m working on the farms right now to get them ready for you -but they won’t be furnished unfortunately!

    A copy of the world is currently on it’s way to you all through WeTransfer. The file is quite large so it’s taking a while (currently it’s at 42% uploaded). Make sure you check you e-mail that you used to register with the site (check Junk Mail folder too) in about 30 minutes.

    1. I already spotted a few little issues with the world – like terrain paint is incorrect in some parts, paths not attached, one of the mcmansions has white stuff coming out of the walls, and I forgot to change some lot types. But I suppose this is the point of a Beta -let me know if any of you find other issues like these! :D

      (Also you’ll find unfinished lots or missing landscaping, I just didn’t get to finish it all yesterday!)

    Hey haven’t had chance to really take a good look (I’ll do that tomorrow) but one thing i have noticed is the fence round the gated community doesn’t all join up properly. Think it’s where you’ve got the back of a lot on to it? Just a heads up anyway. Looks great though, can’t wait to play with it tomorrow x

      I’ll make a list in this post of parts that are missing don’t quite look right that you can all add to. I’ll then update the Beta and you can have that one too if you like,or just stick with this version until they final copy is ready :)

      Also, a heads up -the world currently has 2 gyms, one in the city and one mega one in the commercial district. The one in the city I want to delete and replace with something else, while the mega gym is currently missing the lot setting to “gym” -which Admin spotted today.

My only complaint at this moment (though its more of a personal issue) is that from i’ve seen there is a bit of store content that got replaced by odd objects (I’ll take screenshots soon). I can fix these up for when I play the game myself though.

      Now I’m going to start playing! :D

    I can see I’ll be editing a few lots, the park in the mcmansion community is not really my style. I can upload pictures of those also, if you’d like.

    So, assuming it actually runs (my game is very picky about which custom worlds it wants to use), I hope to be testing the world shortly! So excited.

    By the way I don’t have generations, supernatural or island paradise and it still worked. Some worlds only load when you have the right expansion packs but this one is working well so far. :D

    As for glitches, it seems as if there are no discotags for lots. Is anyone else having this problem? Also, i know somebody already pointed this out but one of the mansions has weird white stuff coming out of the walls. I will let you know of anything else if it comes up.

  8. To go along with some of the road issues in the city and farm area, I noticed the same issue in the parts of the golfing community as well.

    Also I have to add that I was worried that with the gate to the gated community being a lot, I was worried that sims would get out of their cars and walk across the area instead of driving. But they drive right over it like I was hoping!

    I also uploaded a picture of my family, as well as a few other screenshots I took. :)

    Hey Western I’ve found a few more problems with the world
    Sims can’t get into the diner, I think the lot isn’t properly flat or something, and the music at Quaker Steak & Lube is set to classical :/

  9. I’m back! Thanks for all the feedback everyone, it would have taken me forever to find these glitches!

    Anyay- I’m not sure why the school buses aren’t arriving in the right place, this might be a routing issue. I’m not sure why 2 buses are turning up -is anyone else getting this too? This must have changed in one of the expansions packs as it used to work by whatever school was nearest would be the one that sent the bus. I’ll probably delete the gated community school if everyone is getting this.
    I’m planning on re-doing the diner on the beach, so I can fix those problems them, I’ll change the music too at the Quaker Steak & Lube :) Can I also ask if you’re having any issues in the low income neighbourhood with the lots all being quite close together or does it work?

    Lil Gem- Yes there will be a festival lot, it just isn’t anywhere near finished! It’s the one with the huge platform by the sea next to the spa & book store. It will look like a pier/theme park when it’s done. Thanks for the road photos, I’ve using the smoothing tool so that should be fixed now, I also removed the windows in the resort :)
    The cars go right through the gated community’s entrance, kinda looks odd but I think it’s worth it to have the gates :D
    Also, I had a question: as your family live in the farmland, what do you think of the street lights? Would you prefer that area was totally dark at night or is it okay as it is now?

    asonsforxx- I’m glad the world still works without all the expansion packs! And what are the discotags? Are they the ones that show what a lot is or where the club hotspots are? Is anyone getting this too?
    Also is the lot upload still not working?

    seth_soul- are you interested in furnishing an apartment building as an artist’s studio? It would be a double height space furnished with quite scrappy furniture and decor and can be a mixture of old and wacky. Let me know if you’re interested :)

    Sadie- Sorry about the store content and stuff packs! Some lots are really old when I originally planned on using some, but have since decided not to! Let me know where you have found it and I will remove it :) I’ve also smoothed out the road on the golf course so hopefully that will be fixed now, thanks for uploading the image :)

    Thanks for posting the pictures too everyone, I really enjoy seeing how other people use the world!

    1. Hey Western077! Glad that you are getting to feeling better.

      As mentioned above, there is the basketball court near the low income community. (I actually have the idea that this could be made into a low income area pool, as the map tag reads.) There is is also the massage table at the resort between the two hot tubs. I also found a couple stuff pack items, but I need to refresh my memory on where these are.

      Also Alpine County runs pretty well on my computer. I do get lag, but it’s no more then I get from other worlds, and I think it’s caused by the Story Progression mod, as when I disable it, it runs a lot better. :)

    2. Yeah I thought that might be the one! I removed all store content on my computer and the baseball nets turned into flower pots -a rather peculiar replacement! Would you be interested in turning the baseball court into a low income pool? It’s in a quite run-down area so it would be pretty crappy. I was thinking: green water in the pool, rusty stairs, weeds everywhere, the ugly fish from Bridgeport, and just generally old and crappy. I’m going to make the flats next to it look a little more run down too, so it will fit in with that.

      It sounds like the world runs better on your computer than mine. Although mine is 3 years old now, but it is good to hear it works! :D

    3. I’d love to turn the basketball court into a low income pool :D

      My computer is about 3 years old as well. But I do use game booster to help it run a little better. I haven’t had any lag issues that I haven’t had in other worlds :)

      Hey, i think any more lamps in the farming are would be too much. Country lanes (which what i see this area as) don’t really have lamps so the way it i looks perfect. :) x

    4. I was thinking of maybe getting rid of all the lights in the country lanes, or do you think I should leave it as it is?

      Also, I’m working on making the festival lot for you. That whole area by the sea where it currently is will be bulldozed and converted into a marina/pier with a amusement park and cheap sea-side apartments surrounded by a huge parking lot (it will be intentionally tacky!) :D

      We love internationally tacky lol. I think you’re right, get rid of the lights but at the same time i think maybe something in front of the lots (especially in front of the equestrian center). Speaking of which i have a problem with it, my sim can go in but my sim on a horse wont?? Any ideas.

    5. Hey Western777 !

      Yeah why not, it’s a good challenge and it’s ‘…wait for it…’ accepted ! :)

      In which building do you want it to be? You want it to be something like in that picture (http://www.home-designing.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/artist-studio-natural-finishes-creative-spaces.jpg) ? Dirty, messy, brick walls, with paint on the floor and stuff like that !?

      And maybe if you want some french translations for, who knows… a ‘french version’ of your world… I could help ! I’m a french native speaker, belgian to be precise ! ( … and it explain some of my big english grammatical errors probably lol ^^, )

    6. Hey seth_soul!
      YES! That’s exactly what I had in mind! If you could get it as close to that picture without using cc, store content or stuff pack (only expansion packs up to Island Paradise) it will be perfect! :D The lot is the remaining red one in the city, it’s a apartment building with dark blue windows. I can give you a screen shot if you can’t find it :)
      If you’re happy to do the translation that would be great, I’m sure French speaking players would appreciate it :D
      Thanks a lot for your help -and your English is very good too by the way! :D

  10. Hey western077, I have a special request. I’m working on a really cool mansion for my simmies in the country-ish area on the bottom left part of the map, close to the golf club, overlooking the ocean/city. It’s on the 64×64 lot that faces the city really high up and it’s built into the topography. All that to say, I would love for that lot not to be moved or changed or anything, just in case – I want to be able to move this house to the final version. :D

    Something I have noticed and others have too: there are a lot of areas where the ground kind of interferes with the road and it gets all glitchy. (One such area is right next to aforementioned mansion, at the end of the road.) As for the discotags, actually they are working fine, but they are not visible when trying to move sims into a lot.

    All that aside, the world is so incredible. I keep meaning to upload pictures of my family but then I keep going, “eh, the house isn’t done yet so it won’t look good.” Rest assured they will be up… eventually.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention I don’t have university life either. Even without four of the ep’s, the world runs perfectly – better than my two other favorite custom worlds, red county and st. claire.

    Is there any other way I could send you the lot I did? It just isn’t uploading to the exchange. Maybe I could put it on modthesims or something (I don’t really know how to use that system but I can try anyway, lol).

    1. Hey asongforxx, don’t worry that lot isn’t going anywhere and will be in the final version! And that’s a very nice looking lot you built! I’ll smooth out the roads in that area and hopefully that will fix the glitches there, let me know if you spot anymore :)
      I haven’t used modthesims, so I have no idea how that works. You could send it to admin through WeTransfer at admin@sims3createaworld.com and they’ll make sure I get it if you like?

    3. Thank for furnishing the lot for me! It’s awesome, just what I wanted :D You’re very welcome to do more, there are mcmansions and colonial suburban houses that need furnishing, as well as abandoned/haunted houses. Also, the world currently has too many apartments and not enough clubs/bars, so if you would like to convert one of the city lots, that’s also available. Take your pick! :D Just let me know which one you like the sound of and I will give you more details :)

    Hey western
    I was wondering if I could furnish the mall thing next to the mega gym?
    And also, those little beach houses by the resort, it says on the map that they’re finished but they’re completely empty and have no wallpaper or anything on the inside? Is that a mistake or is meant to be like that for players???

    1. Hey Anyay,
      The beach houses were furnished after the sending the Beta version, which is why they aren’t finished in the world that you have. I was planning on leaving the mega mall empty until I finish the revamp of the marina area if that is alright, as anything that doesn’t fit in the theme park pier will go in the mall (so I might have to make the lot bigger and fit in a sports centre for the snowboarding ramp).
      If you’re looking to make a new lot, you can do the fishing wood cabin bar that you previously said you’d like to do? I built a little cabin on the same lot with a pier going into the lake, but I don’t like it, so you can delete it and build something better if you like?

      That’s all good, I wasn’t that keen on buildings it, I’ll get started on the fishing cabin. Do you need someone to also do that base camp thing, cause that’d be fun to do as well, only if you need someone to do that though :)

    2. Awesome! Thank you! For the fish cabin I was thinking something quite dark and dingy, obviously with a lot of dark wood and for the bar to be slightly run down/dirty. The camping site will be really quick as it just needs a few tents and a tiny cabin for toilets and kitchen utilities (no bigger than the Egyptian base camp in world adventures, you could even use the new all in one bathroom from world adventures. As long as it looks quite inconspicuous! :) Thank you for doing those two :D

    hey western,
    I have a suggestion with the marina (it looks really nice btw), with the pier, this is just something i personally get bothered by. If you delete the foundation thing and replace it with regular floor tiles, it won’t have so many of those pillars, and I just think it would look a bit better. :)

    1. Hey Anyay, don’ worry I’ll do that! The pier is currently just to see what it would look like from a distance (as I like to test out views from different parts of the world) and I haven’t yet started to build anything on it. It will end up looking like a tacky faux Victorian pier for tourists hehe :P (although I was thinking of marking the lot as a bar/club)

    2. The actual pier is separate to the lot already built in the picture that has all the activity stuff to do. I’m not sure if I’m getting confused though, what is a festival lot? I haven’t actually played Sims properly since Pets came out, I’ve just worked on the world, so I might be getting it confused with something else. I thought it’s something with all the seasons activities to do?
