Pleasant Valley- Longview Edit!

This is a custom edit of Longview by Rflong7 on CustomSims3.

I took the beautifully crafted Longview, added some different lots, and decorated it myself. I am quite pleased with the results!

Pleasant Valley has a suburban district, a small business district, a downtown City, "The Hills", a beach, mountains, a secluded beach, an army installation, and farmland.

I will be honest: I was sorta lazy with some of the decor/lots, but it really gets to be hard to be creative when you're filling up an entire world.
















































The world has a ton of empty lots (including a section by the center with a bunch of 20x20 lots for smaller homes), most of which are 20x30 (in the suburbs), though some are larger. Almost every house in the world is from Sunset Valley, Riverview, Twinbrook, or Bridgeport. Some are from France. The rest are either from the library or made by me.

Two of the apartments are incomplete! This was part laziness, part "do-it-yourself". I did decorate the outsides, though, but I was really burned out on making entire apartment buildings so I left them empty. The rest are complete, though.

A lot of the rabbit holes are repeated- there are 2 grocery stores on one lot, two bookstores on one lot, there are 3 police stations across the world, there are 3 office buildings (one from each expansion, two on one lot), there are 3 spas. This was to fill space and make the world feel a bit more cluttered. Your sims can also choose which to work at by applying, so maybe they can work at the small office, but switch to the medium at level 5, and then the tall one at level 10? Your choice.

Very few of the skyscraper lots are clubs, most are residential.

The world IS populated, and quite heavily, since a lot of the homes used were populated to begin with!

ISSUES: The bridge is raised. I have pulled it down and re-saved repeatedly but each time it got lifted back up. Cars still go over it just fine, though.
The Army Barracks were intended to be an apartment, but I couldn't get them to function properly, so they are basically just a decor thing, I guess. I left them in in case someone wants to try and figure it out.

This world requires World Adventures (4 of the lots are from france, two of them are tombs!), Ambitions (A lot of the lots are from Ambitions), Late Night (For half the town), and the Renault pack (for the charging station). Everything else should be base game. :D

Remember, this world was not made by me! I simply gave it different lots and a few new decoration items. This is a custom edit of Longview by Rflong7 on CustomSims3.

Install the world and then put the save folder in your saves folder. Both files are in one zip.

  1. Randomly, what is this Renault pack that you speak of? >_> I really want to download this but I honestly don't know what you're talking about. Is Australia missing a pack? Lol.

  4. Nadzicle, do a Google search for Sims 3 eco pack. It is a download and has its own page rather than being listed in the Store.

  7. Hello.. love this world.

    However, it is empty. All the lots, everything. You can hear crickets. I'm unsure if I did it wrong.

    Thanks!

  9. I dont exactly get where to put the PleasantValley.sims3 folder.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I see the .simpack, so is the .sims3 folder even necessary or not?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes. You need to use the .simpack to install the world. Then put the .sims3 into save (as per the instructions) Then, when you want to use the world, start it up, using the save file. If you just use the .simspack, you will have an empty world.

  12. Its a great world. I placed a few more nightclubs - but sadly all the mixologists and bouncers (mixologists don't serve anything) are Emma Hatch. She sure gets about and has multiple sisters all called Emma Hatch. Weirdness, I wonder what could be causing this. Other than that it is a really good playable world, you need quite a powerful PC as its very full. Thanks.

  15. Nadzicle: The Renault pack link can be found here:
    http://www.snootysims.com/extrasindex.php?id=freestuff
    Some places only saw the Prius set, some only saw the Renault. Unless you were watching EAstore\Freebe update sites you would have missed it.
    If you can't get it there, I'm sure other people may have reuploaded it somewhere.

  16. I had the same problem...empty. Installed the packages in the appropriate place, and the sims3pack in the appropriate place. Are there files missing in the download?

    ReplyDelete
  17. wonderful. I'm breaking my "no cc" rule and downloading this.

  18. I love this hood so much! Shame I can't get the Renault pack :c

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love this hood! But since I've started using it my game lags. I'm positive it's got to be something on my end though. I just have to find it.
    I just wish more of the apartment buildings were finished. Sometimes I don't always feel inspired enough to do it myself.
    I love the community lots and the variety. The town is really pretty too.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I do really like it :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. This hood looks great! But I noticed after I moved in some teenage sims that they had no school to go to?? Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?

    ReplyDelete
  22. too many errors on this map. unplayable!

    ..shame on you, this world sux alot

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wooow i like it ;=)

  24. Great WORLD; absolutely love it!

    But I do get empty lots... which is unfortunate.

    I would like to know how you managed to edit Rflong7 world of Longview? I can't find the file extension (.world) to edit it with CAW.

    You see I would like to edit the world just a bit myself because I have a beautiful beach house I want to install but can't seem to create/find the correct lot size for it.

    If you can please help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

  25. It's a beautiful town, but I won't be using it as sadly there's no school :(

  27. Hrm. It seems my install is missing lots then. Is there any way to fix that?

    ReplyDelete
  28. When I installed it there was no school. All I did was add it and voila. No biggie. Certainly not worth a big complaint over something you can easily do yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love this world but it's not working right for me T.T . When I got in to play I see only empty lots.I never had such a problem.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I dont know where to place the files, I have a Mac and I need some help!

    ReplyDelete
  31. thanks for sharing this world and other files in your site!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I recently downloaded this world and love it! It looks good, it's the perfect size and I love how its laid out.

    I have had no problems using the save game you provided to populate the world. For all the people who don't know how to populate the world and are too lazy to simply READ INSTRUCTIONS, it's simple. =P There is a folder called *Pleasant Valley.sims3* included with your download. Simply copy that folder and place it in *C:\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves*. When you open your game there should be a file called Pleasant Valley included in your saved games menu, open it to access the populated world. Naturally you must also install the Sims3Pack as well in order to use it. Hope it helps.

  34. Hello,

    This island looks beautiful and I really want to play it but when I try to download it via the launcher, a pop-up appears reading, "An Unknown Error Occurred". I am sure it is some odd thing on my end but I was wondering if there was anyway to download this with a .package or something?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  36. One problem, there are no collectable things like rocks, gems, seeds, birds, insects, etc =(. However, the world is amazing ; )

    ReplyDelete
  37. The original Longview has a free (as in costs nothing) house at the edge of town. Did you fix that?

    1. It's been a while, but I'm 90% sure that I placed every lot by hand, and none are from the original.
