I'm merging this with the main SS2020 thread because Jaga probably has a better answer than any of us. Good luck!

If you haven't yet, please check to make sure you downloaded and installed Ella's Fixed Sunset Valley.world file, which is required for both SV2020 Chocolate and Vanilla to run well.

EllaCharmedís Fixed World file (required, 69 MB)

If you've checked to make sure you've got Ella's fixed world file installed, and it's still crashing, you may want to look over some more troubleshooting tips in the post linked below:

hello guys:

i thought i ought to tell you that while i love playing in this new world, it keeps crashing to the desktop. it's happened at least 3 times today and i don't get a chance to  save as before it happens. is it my fault? or maybe because there are animals running around in the town. deers and horses? is there something i can do to prevent it happening again? thanks!

The hospital should be there. The only community lot that was removed was Hoganís Deep-Fried Diner. It was replaced with Brunton's Boxcar Diner located behind the Supermarket in Mirabello Plaza.

See image below, it shows where the hospital is located.

When I've done a full uninstall/reinstall of Sims 3, I backup my whole Sims 3 user folder onto my desktop, usb key or external hard drive. You can do the same with Ella's fixed world file - download it and save it to the desktop, usb key or external hard drive.

If you want to break it down even further, by folders/files you can check the post below:

If it's specific to SV2020 (like technical issues with the files) you can ask your questions here in the SV2020 thread.

Any gameplay specific questions (like how to play this or that family) may be moved to Sims 3 Gameplay Help, as they don't have anything specific to do with SV2020.

Thanks Mrs. Flynn

I wanted to mention a question that was asked, that I thought is important to highlight.

Q: The seasonal festivals aren't being held at Central Park? Was the lot moved?

A: Yes the lot was moved to Summer Hills Springs - 25 Summer Hill Court. Next Door to the Altos.

Re: Sunset Valley 2020 - Performing in Central Park Issue and Fix

Thank you to the member and player who brought this to my attention!! :)

Performing in Central Park Issue and Fix -

The watch the show interaction cancels itself out, due to it needing 3 or 4 audience markers. This can be fixed by placing them via buydebug. You are looking for objects called Show Floor Benches or Tables. After it's fixed, save a copy of the lot to the library.

- From Edit Town click on the lot - Build/Buy mode.

- Press Shift-Ctrl-C all together, and type in Testingcheatsenabled on.

- Press Shift-Ctrl-C again and type in buydebug on.

- Buy mode > Sort by Function > Buydebug > Misc Objects - Filter content by Showtime.

- Look for objects Show Floor for Benches or Tables.

Sunset Valley 2020 - Crashing My Game
« Reply #102 on: July 10, 2020, 03:25:07 AM »
I have read that some players are having issues with SV2020 saves are crashing their games. I am really sorry about that!! It happened to me as well, when I first tried the saves.

How I fixed it is I made sure I had Ella's fixed Sunset Valley.World file downloaded. Deleted my game cache files and then installed the world file.

We've mentioned it's required because SV2020 was built on Ella's fixed world file and works best with it installed.

You can download EllaCharmedís Fixed World file here

Unzip the file (Right-click file and select Extract All).

Click image to see larger view.


 -- Before installing the fixed file, rename your original Sunset Valley.world file. I renamed it Sunset Valley.world-Original. That way I still have access to the original file.

Install path may be different then the path shown in image.

Click image to see larger view.


Copy and paste the Sunset Valley.world file into where you installed the Sims 3 game. Usually located in:

<<Install Drive:>> C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\GameData\Shared\NonPackaged\Worlds

 ** The install path may be different depending on where you installed Sims 3.

Delete the Game Cache Files. - This is best to do whenever you are installing new worlds to play.

From inside this folder \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, you can delete the game cache to help the game run smoother:

  - CasPartCache.package - CAS parts that appear in Create-A-Sim
  - compositorCache.package - New objects that would appear in Buy/Build mode
  - scriptCache.package - Mods or Hacks
  - simCompositorCache.package - New Sims, default skins
  - Sims3LauncherLogFile.log - Uploading/Downloading info in regards to the Exchange
  - Sims3Logs.xml - Log Files about your computer and errors that might occur.
  - socialCache.package - Simport-related and other social data, if you use the wall to integrate with your MyPage on thesims3.com site

If the above hasn't helped, please read the articles linked below for more tips.

Re: Sunset Valley 2020 - Subway Issue
« Reply #103 on: July 22, 2020, 03:59:03 PM »
It was reported that a few lots have a double map icon/name tag issue when looking at the map in Map View. We've looked into this and found it may be by design when the object or building is on a lot of it's own. For example, the Vault/Hall of Antiquity lot, and single subway lots.

You can test this by going into any town and place an empty lot. Change lot type to Community > No Visitors Allowed and place the subway station object or Vault of Antiquity building and then look at it via Map View. You'll see two icons 1 subway and 1 bench. Both with the same name.

I also wanted to mention that the single subway lots can be renamed via Edit Town mode. Left-click on the bench icon and Edit Details button, which is the pen/paper icon. After you've renamed the subway, you can mouse over either the subway icon or bench icon to see it's new name.

Wanted to chime in and say thanks for taking up support while I was away on a personal hiatus MrsFlynn.

For the community:  the worlds and their development are very much alive.  I'm planning a v2.1 release to fix the Central Park audience issues, and a future v3.0 release with some new things that were previously discussed (and a few things that weren't).  Suggestions, feedback, and so on are very welcome.
