You can check your current game version by opening the launcher and hovering over your The Sims 3 base game icon (the first one in the lower left corner). You can update the game through the launcher in the "updates" tab to the left of the window. It is also possible to manually update the game by downloading the file located here and opening it, thus allowing the game to apply the latest patch update.

Hey Naga, ive been using your riverview for over week and i like it very much. :)
Nice layout and feels more townlike and lively with all the added buildings. Only "complaint" i could make is that there are too many bars but thats personal as i never use those much.

A few questions:
- in map view the stadium has 2 icons, one is the Binder Clips Center , the other is Llama Memorial Arena but when ya click its icon it says Binder Clips Center. Does it mean it has 2 rabbitholes or is it a bug ?

- Bronco's bar , the Barney's salon and Port-a-party Wharehouse buildings aint purchasable , is this by design or game limited ?

- Can i remove Bronco's and the combined Cityhall/Police station , put original Cityhall back and put Police Station on the Bronco lot without worrying about rabbitholes or other things that could break gameplay or saves ?
None of my active household work there so shouldnt be affected in that aspect.

Riverview? Are you sure? xD
Yes, there are quite a lot of bars and venues, but those are needed for people who want to make the most out of having all the expansion packs (See first post, right after the banner, it says all the stuff you can do with this town).

The stadium having 2 icons is not a fact to worry about. Ignore the Binder Clips icon and keep using the stadium one normally.

If those mentioned lots aren't purchasable, it's probably by game design, as I didn't do anything to them that would change this much.  :o

It's okay to remove Mad Bronco's Bar and put a Police Department there, but if you remove the city hall (and the police dept with it), all sims who have political and law-enforcement careers will lose their jobs. If you want to do that, you must first place another city hall and another police dept somewhere else in the map, then remove the combined one, then place the new ones.

Hi there Naga, I'm going to download your Bridgeport soon I think. I've read here it got some bugs in it so I'll give you some time to terminate those first. Great work ma. I mostly find myself having a lot of trouble when I try to place buildings on empty sloops: vertical edges are mostly exactly what I don't want.

Yea, it's been really fun to make this Twinbrook. Only problem is, I don't know how to fix the apartment building. Any ideas?

Naga, is that apartment up at Pinocle Point? If so, that grass over the sidewalk problem has been there since the beginning. I put a house up there several times and the grass went over the sidewalk on all of them. It probably can't be fixed.

No, those are the boulevard houses (or, as I call them, the Orange Triplets). The apartment building is by Agnes Crumplebottom's place. There seems to be a problem with how I set the public spaces, and something about the door too.

Naga, this is great! Thanks. I'm very interested in your upgraded Bridgeport since I like the Townies. Let me know where it can be downloaded. Don't see it in the swap shop.

Do u think it could be because you put it in a space that doesn't "technically" have an address?? maybe that's part of the code needed for it to function right, needing an actual street address or something.

No, no. That worked out fine for everything else. It's something in the lot that is causing trouble.

Afraid I don't know how to fix it either.  Has anyone else tried moving into it and had the same problems as me?

Its a consistent fault for me any time I do a game in that version of your Sunset Valley but I wondered if it might just be due to that specific version.

Not sure if it's been noted anywhere but an issue with the apartment is it stops you from being able to call the Pizza Delivery guy. I did some googling after I couldn't get a pizza and found that it's been a long standing bug that has yet to be resolved.

As above, I also moved a family into the apartment but then couldn't go inside. I ended up just bulldozing it.

Edit: I used the RestrictBuildBuyInBuildings off cheat, then duplicated the door with the eye dropper tool and deleted the original. It seemed to fix the problem for me and I now get Lock... instead of Ring Bell when I click the door.

Thank you for the info, Kai Heilos.

Gingerbill, if you don't have ambitions, I believe the five lots from ambitions* would be replaced or simply removed. This could lead to some weird placements, or empty spaces.

*Fire Station, Salon, Laundromat, Cosignment Store, Junkyard.

Nice info, Kai, I'll have to try that next time.  At least I wasn't the only one getting the issue!

Hi Naga,
Thank you so much for this world. It looks great!

It's okay to remove Mad Bronco's Bar and put a Police Department there, but if you remove the city hall (and the police dept with it), all sims who have political and law-enforcement careers will lose their jobs. If you want to do that, you must first place another city hall and another police dept somewhere else in the map, then remove the combined one, then place the new ones.

I believe that you also have to change the job location of the sims with those jobs first. If you are playing with that sim, you go to neighbourhood view and there you can change the sim's job location to another building with the same career. I think this way they'll keep their progress in their careers.
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

Just downloaded this, looking forward to trying it next time I'm in game.

By the way, if there are any Mac users, StuffIt Expander also opens .rar files, so you can download from MediaFire with no problems.

Hello Naga.  I bet this question been asked before but I have only Late Night and Generations.  I don't suppose you have a way for me to play do you?

[EDIT] I suppose i could just remove them.  Sorry for the trouble!

I'm pretty sure I've posted this before, but: I love this 'hood (...world, whatever the correct Sims 3 term is). There are a lot of pretty worlds out there, but I've only found them to be unpopulated, buggy and not including everything I need to play properly. I'm not a great builder, so I'm always glad when you update this world for my new expansions.

Thanks for all your hard work!
