Hello. My real estate Sim would like to purchase the run down beach property that was known formerly as Old Pier Beach (which I was able to purchase prior to switching to SV2020). The property is not showing up on the list of purchasable properties. Can someone offer advice please?

Hello Lapaige46, I am going to merge your post with the thread for the Sunset Valley 2020 World Thread, but I believe the pier in question has been moved and updated in this version.

MrsFlynn, maybe you can clarify?

If I am correct, you're asking about this property?

If so, it's still there. It's been moved and renamed to Sunset Beach. Just off of Sunnyside Blvd - off to the right of Flying V's Coffee House. It can be purchased while in live mode by clicking on the lot's icon and selecting the option looking for it's new name in the list via PC/Phone.

Re: Spawners in SV2020
« Reply #124 on: November 03, 2020, 12:12:24 AM »
I happen to see a question about this on SV2020's FAQ page and wanted to share the answer here.

I don't think Jaga added any specific spawners from any of the expansions.  The spawners from the original Sunset Valley are there, players can find plants, gems, rocks etc.

Both saves have the basic spawners. If you want more than the basics, you'll have to add them yourself to the different lots using Buydebug.

Igazor has answered a similar question back in 2018, on Steam. lol!! (Source Link)

Spawners come with the base game, including those for many insects but there are lots of other categories like seeds, fish, rocks, gems, reptiles, etc. Many of the expansion packs added more to them. I've seen attempts at comprehensive lists of them over the years, but they all seem to stop short around LateNite and don't think I've seen one to be totally inclusive. Such a list would go on for many screens.

They are special, usually invisible, objects that are placed in a world during its design stage or on lots by way of Buy Debug.

Hi! I was wondering about the spawners. Are the spawners still the same as the ones from vanilla Sunset Valley, or were there added the spawners for the expansions (like the ones from Late Night)? I'd like to know if I would or not need to add them manually.

Thanks for your reply. I realize that Old Pier/Sunset Beach has been moved. One of my Sim's homes is right behind it. :D I was talking about the "No Visitors Allowed" property that's now in it's old place. I would like to update it and I figured out how to make it a purchasable property. I changed the property type to "visitors allowed" and gave it a name. After that it showed up on my list of properties available to purchase (except now I can't afford it yet).

Ah, the resort right there on the beach front? That's Ticky Tacky Tiki. It's basically a resort from IP - Aka Hobart's Hideway.

Ticky Tacky Tiki - Beach Front Resort:



Map View:



It should have the name of The Ticky Tacky Tiki, and property type of Resort. It should be purchasable as is - without having to change it's lot type to visitors allowed.

Sent sim to explore the underwater cave mermaid's grotto instant reset back to land, I fixed my issue with a mod and NRaas Debugenabler.

The mod is Shimrods101's  Dive Cave Reset Fix

The mod goes into: \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder.

To fix the issue players must reset the lot using Debugenabler first. That along with the mod installed should fix the issue.

Crinrict has a helpful article on the issue as well.

Note: TFM has an issue at the moment with validating emails. Players can use their Discord Channel to have their email manually validated. Kimi has a post about it here.

Recently I wanted to start a new Sims 3 game and came across this world, it looks absolutely great! Thank you for this.
Question: As far as I can tell there is 1 school; right?
I usually play with 2 schools (elementary & highschool) and a homeworld university (using NRaas careers mod). Is there enough room on the map for an extra school & a university?

You're welcome, and Thank you for the compliment and question.

You are correct, there is only 1 school in the SV2020 save files.

If you would like to add more community lots you will need to bulldoze any existing houses or other community lots, as there are not very many empty lots in these save files, due to it being a small map.

Extracting the SV2020 Save Files
« Reply #130 on: December 20, 2020, 10:33:22 AM »
It was brought to my attention that there are players still having issues with downloading, extracting the SV2020 save files, so I updated my howto and hopefully made it a little easier to understand. -- Original howto here

Hopefully this helps, and if not please ask if anything is unclear!!



  ✽ Click images to see larger view

  1. Click on the download link, and select Save File. (It's recommended to save to your desktop)



  2. Unzip/extract the file. (Right-click on file and select Extract All)

 

  3. Copy the resulting SV2020 folder to your Sims 3 Saves folder. (Right-click folder, and select Copy)
      -- \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves



  4. Launch game, at the Sims 3 Main Menu, you should find some files. You may need to mouse over each to find the one called SV2020_Chocolate_2.0



** The first one in the menu is SV2020 Chocolate edition.

 * The silhouetted family means there is no active family selected. The silhouetted house means the same thing. -- The save file with the house in full color has an active family.

  5. Double-click the SV2020 save file to open it.



   ✽ Reminder: If you are missing any expansion packs, the lots will still show, but will not be functional. For example, if you do not have Showtime, you will need to replace the stadium with the one from the original Sunset Valley and you will need to have your Sim join the Sport Career again.

Please see the FAQs section for more Frequently Asked Questions.

A Big Thank You to all for the questions!! 🤗

Hello, folks. Thanks a lot for creating Sunset Valley 2020-- I've definitely been enjoying my game more now that I'm playing on this version. I just have two questions at the moment, though:

1. Where have the Robo-Fish spawners been moved to? I don't see any body of water by the new science lab. I'm still several fishing skill levels away from being able to fish them up, but it'd be helpful to know for later.

2. I fixed the issue with Simfests at central park by adding the debug show floors, but Simfests at Mad Bronco's Bar also seem to be broken. Whenever I tell my Sim to watch the show there, he stomps his foot in anger and complains his path is blocked by the very table he's trying to sit at. Is this due to the bar's normal, non-Simfest tables blocking the Simfest items from working or something?

Cheers.

Thank you for the questions.

I am not entirely sure where the robo-Fish spawners were moved to. I just remember Jaga saying they were moved.

I was unaware of Mad Bronco's Bar being broken, but I am not surprised due to it being a pretty small bar and the tables are packed closely to each other.

You're correct that it might be due to the non-Simfest tables blocking the Simfest items from working, so you may have to edit the lot so there's room to move around.

I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.

It's no problem. Thank you for the response.

I suppose I'll have to wait for a response from Jaga on the Robo-Fish spawner question.

I do know there is a robo fish spawner up by the waterfall past the junkyard. (Stoney Falls, 57 Waterfall Way) I'll be back with a screenshot of the place I'm talking about. I'm not sure if there are other spots with robo fish.

Edit edit to add: I launched my SSV2020 and had my max fisher inspect the bodies of water. Pinochle pond (near the Equestrian Center and "Loft" houses.) the middle set of fish, there are robo fish too.
