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.
