I want to say thank you for providing this. I really appreciate it. I am having an issue that has only begun when the updated version was added. I am getting an system error when trying to load this world. I have done a fresh install... no custom content added... and was able to play fine before the update.

Just looking for any advice to fixing this issue or if anyone else is having this problem?

[edit] Trying another fresh install.

This may not be it, but have you checked how much disk space you have available in your HD? If that's not the problem, I can send you the link for 2.1.1 and you can fix the sports bar by yourself, to see if it works then. If it keeps getting errored, then I don't know what's going on.

I think, if I remember rightly, to get an elevator shaft to go through a foundation, you need to put the cheat 'moveobjects on' and put an elevator shaft through the foundation, or they won't connect.

Naga,
It seems in the new version anyone who was in the Music Job lost their job.  Zelda, Paula, Stiles etc.

Yes, please... I would really appreciate that. I can definitely fix the sports bar myself.

[edit] Figured out my problem. Nvidia has issues with certain programs and tends to corrupt them. If anyone else has this problem and uses Nvidia, you have to uninstall old drivers, reboot then reinstall them. A pain but it worked.

Thanks again

I've been playing with 2.1 and haven't any problem until last night.  I had a sim marry another sim who lived in the Mare Nostrum Apartments.  When the other sim moved in, I discovered that they couldn't get into the apartment.  Is there something that needs to be corrected so any sim who lives in the 3 bedroom can use it?

Did the sim actually live in the apartment, or did they live in an NPC apartment?  Because if they lived in the NPC apartment and you moved in with them, your sim may very well be living in a home that they can't enter.

I've never heard of this happening, but that might be because I've never heard of anyone trying this.

I think what rhondaloo meant was that the playable sim married another [npc] sim who lived in the apartments, and then couldn't move in. This is most likely caused by some sort of bug that links the npc apartment doors to the npcs themselves.

I think you can fix that by moving out with the other sim, and then moving back to the apartments.

The sims who were married were both playable sims.  I moved them out and back in several times but they still couldn't go into the apartment.  I activated the various cheats and poked around the building in buy/build mode.  Nothing jumped at me screaming "fix me!"

I thought maybe I had missed a thread that talked about this issue. I really like the building, especially the apartment which I would love to use.

ETA:  Ah, after reading a thread about building apartments, I saw mentioned how to set doors.  I checked that and found the furnished apartment door was not set to "lock".  I changed the setting.  Now my family is in their apartment. I have no idea how I managed to change the setting before that.  Thanks for the help.

I have just downloaded this and look forward to trying it out, thanks!

I have a Sim I created that has a LTW to be Master Mixologist. If I put her in an empty house with story progression on, is it likely she'll become a mixologist at one of the bars/clubs? Or are those always made up of non playable Sims?

Welcome to the forum!
Player-created sims will never become NPC's (well, they can, but only with a cheat). This includes a mixologist. In each town is a pool of sims. These people are the mixologists, as well as the paparazzi, bouncers, etc. These people's jobs change, but they are the only ones who will. In rare cases, a Player Controlled Sim will become a paparazzi, but the only sim I know to do that is Lenny Shutter (Bridgeport).

In my Sunset Valley, Yumi Sekemoto became paparazzi. She also became unplayable when she moved out of home and into an appartment. I think she may have taken her grandchild with her, because he disappeared.

Seabody did mention that some sims may become papparazzis. The fact that the sim became unplayable when moving into an apartment may be related to the "npc door" thing, thus "making" a sim become an npc. The grandchild.... I guess it's more likely that he just disappeared than that he became a npc too.

I've been looking for something exactly like this. This is absolutely perfect, thanks!

Sunset Valley is my favorite neighborhood to play in, but it was so hard to use with Late Night features because any empty space was eaten up by Ambitions. Ahhh, I'm so happy I found this! I did a fresh install and cleaned up all of my downloads, CC and mods to only have what I actually used. My game loads quickly, looks terrific has all the features I want, and is in my favorite setting.

How do I get my Sims to to move into the apartent? When I move them there the go into the common area but can't get into the actual apartment. When I click on the door it says "Knock on door." I saw someone say something about changing the lock setting, if that's it, how do I do that?

The town is awesome! Thanks for all your hard work.

Which door are you clicking? The frontal door of the "playable-sim apartment" is on the second floor to the right, and it should work just normally, no need for knocking.

That is the door. I can see everything inside that apartment, but they can't get into it and it just says knock when I click on the door. Is it because I put them in there while playing another Sim and switched to them later instead of moving them in while controlling them?

Incredible work thou Naga. Night life to the SV style is hard work to accomplish and is really cool thou version. A cool feature could be a tourist resort with lots of appartment buildiings. Anyway nice job

Yes, that is definetly why this happened. Apartments are very sensitive to matters of that kind.

Thank you for the nice words, WolfJake.

First of all great work :)

But I have a little problem. When I start the game, my game says that all object can be placed and they will be replaced.

Am I doing something wrong :)?

Thanks for you time

You are not doing anything wrong at all. That was just a mistake with one of the lots I placed. You see, there is a custom item in a certain lot (I don't know which lot or which item, hence why I can't remove it) that pops that message to people who don't have the item. Sorry about that.

HI Naga,

I was directed to this thread by another member when I was looking for information on placing late night lots etc into a new sunset valley game and see its incedible work!

I downloaded it immediately wanting to play however I have a new computer with winrar pre-installed
and discovered it wont open any downloaded files at all even the ones I know for sure are okay?

Whenever I click on the download winrar attempts to open it and gives me an error message re  corrupt or archive files and then asks me if I want to search for a program to open the download with so I click winrar and again an error message?
 
I tried the repair option for winrar but it only gives me the opportunity to uninstall??

I downloaded ZZip to try using another program but the same thing happens so I am now wondering if its me doing something wrong and I am getting so frustrated as I just want to get on and download this world.
 
My apologies if this is not the correct thread for asking such information as I am new to the forum.

Warm Regards

Dawn

Since WinRar has given problems to some people, I decided to put an alternate method to download the files. Here's how it works: There are 5 files in every Save folder in TS3. You need to use winrar to upload the folder itself, but you can download the 5 files directly and then put them in a folder, so that's what we're going to try:

Note that this is only for people who just can't get their WinRar to work.

1.Download the 5 files from this link:
http://www.mediafire.com/?8p29dilqnkej7

2.Go to your TS3 saves folder (Probably at C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves). Create a new folder there, and name it "Sunset Valley 2.1.sims3", without the quotes.

3.
Cut the 5 files you downloaded and paste them all inside the folder you just created.

4.Open the game and play it!

Hope this helps all of you folks who couldn't get it working before. ;)

Hi Naga,

I was reading about another zip 7zip i think its called so I downloaded that and managed to open the town and place it.

A message did come up saying some objects could not be placed but after dowloading the town and visiting all the venues i did not notice anything wrong.

I installed a family I had been playing in bridgeport and all went well for several hours and then my old problems came back from first installing late night around a week ago such as Sims stuck in beds and when I reset them it works on some and others are still stuck to the bed.

also when I try to change the beds to buy new ones it states the bed cannot be moved as the Sim is still in it when they are not.

I don't think this has anything to do with your beautiful town but now it looks like I will have to reinstall late night from scratch which means i will loose my family I have nurtured for ages  :'(

Thanks for the download though its truly awesome!

Warm Regards

Dawn
