Not quite the same, I just had everything freeze (while in CAS) I've since lowered my settings and played and it was fine for a bit longer. I think I just need to tweak things a bit to find the right settings for this world.

Of course, while my baby is finally released to the public, I totally forget about it on a busy day. Way to go, Naga.

So how do you like it, guys? Any feedback is appreciated.

Okay so the town was going fine, a little freezing but none more than usual on my game. Then while I was making a new sim in CAS my screen went completely black. The computer was still on, I couldn't get the screen back. Anyone else experience this?

Huh, I get that sometimes too. Not in UC, just generally. I normally just do an emergency shutdown (hold power button) and come back to the computer later.

Ok, I just saw this.  Awesome!

I can't grab it right now, but I'm so going to grab this later.

Does it have spawners for special seeds/gems/etc? (I'm assuming yes, given the usual high-quality stuff I see on this forum, but I figure I'll still ask. :) )

And I don't have the stuff packs.  Am I right that it will just replace the objects with stuff from the base game?

Can I just say, that the house Lilygirl's simself lives in, is so beautiful! The landscaping is just ingenious.

All the community lots also look beautiful! My favourite part about this world, is the perfection in every build. I thought that Mod Hill and Admin Hill were very good ideas.

Awesome! I now play with no problems, once the settings were turned all the way down. I love the house with my simself and Charlie Sheen. I added my Real life cat and him and Luke Mardsen got along very well!  ;D

Most likely you overheating. This world is doublesized SV in a number of lots and sims so your processor and memory is highly used. Lowering settings usually work. If not - I really don't know then - I only have game act strange while in CAS when I download and edit Sim with store items I don't have, and UC don't have any.

@katluvr - I saw your comment about Cooper family in Swap Shop and it was clear they will live in your town house! Glad it worked ;)

@Esther - I did had to set their relationships but it was a pleasure to do so - having them in UC along with other fantastic families is precius. About your card/PC and settings - poor graphic card means low graphic settings but you having 6GB of RAM will make up to it! I usually try to play it calm and not shift around too much, specially on 3.speed and on admin/mod hills - large lots with tons of objects loading at the same time will cause the lagging.

I was very carefull to use all the tips I could find to make the performance optimal, from organizing layers in CAW to marking unroutable areas along the grid. And many other things too.

@Chuckles if you want more details about inhabiting worlds PM me  ;)

And I can't tell you all how happy I am and all the top secret team for sharing it with you all. There is a street lamp I would move now and few more details, but with such an attitude it will never be really done - Hope we will update it with Show Time too!

Also, you'll notice there are only few flame fruits in the town, one deathflower and no money trees and life fruits, also no WA skilling objects or even tomb objects. No LTR's and that dynasty/legacy lot is priced as the one in SV - it has increased price comparing to regular lots that size. And there are skill books in a library LOL. There is just the right number of special spawners ;)

One more about EP's and SP's - SP's don't matter, we didn't use TLSP Rabbitholes so no big changes will hapen, most likely it will all get replaced with similar objects you have. EP's are different, and before Pets you were able to load the world (and lot) with objects from EP you don't have and game would replace it but after, crashes are almost inevitable. That is why we provided the save file which is just the world loaded without any family selected. That way you'll get the message that some objects are replaced but it will work, even with just a base game - I checked it myself. Of course, it looks sort of wierd with oak trees instead of palm trees from WA but it works.

Are the pet spawners in world or on lots?
Only few lots have any spawners at all, and Pet spawners are only placeable on lots - still not available in CAW as others are. However, they do appear near other spawning points, like in all prePets worlds.

Thanks for the reply Ausette. I'm glad that I won't have to ask for permission for every sim that makes an appearance cause I might have a lot.
And I'll be respectful to them all, but i might treat that sim named Sports Fan a little rough. :D

Your baby?  This was an immense GROUP project, Naga.  No single person should be calling it his or her baby without expecting some upset feelings as a result.

This world is really cool. I don't like the "my baby" comment though. I don't want to be rude, that's not my intention, but I believe this was a team effort, not one sole person's "baby."

About Showtime upgrades, may I suggest or even build/share, a Karaoke Bar?

I was put to tears, from laughing so hard at some of the bios for the households you guys came up with. I absloutly my SimSelf, and Charlie Sheen being apart of this world! I apologize my cat, who I love to brag about and have posted pictures in the Babble Thread many times, couldn't make an appearance. Sadly, my GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) wasn't up to par at the time of this project, so he turned out distorted. I will be uploading him very soon, and would like it if you moved him into the Sheen household. Pam, you will find that Polanco and Luke have a lot in common.

The Legacy/Dynasty lot was worth $14,400 in my game, and the one in SV is $14,700. ???

I don't mind the "my baby" comment, it's yours and everyone's baby! I think we've all grown pretty attached to Union Cove over the last few months, and I'm hoping the rest of the forum will as well.   :D

I agree. I didn't see anything bad about it at first, and although I see how it can be interpreted wrong, I agree with Ausette.

Sorry about that last comment. I totally interperated it as one calling the project his/her baby and his/her baby only, as if none of us had anything to do with it.  :-[

Hurrah, here it is!

This world looks absolutely great and the idea behind it is amazing. Thanks a lot to all of you who spend so many hours to create and polish it. Right now, it's only downloading on my computer, but just looking at the pictures on the guide, it sure looks like one of the very best worlds ever released for the Sims 3... if not the best at all in fact.

Thanks so much again.

Thank you so much. I got to thinking about how they are technically related and was worried about them being able to do romantic interactions with each other. Thank you for taking the time to see to it that that couldn't happen! I think that's what it was, when I was in control of them, it wasn't lagging bad, than I just had to switch and take control of Pam.  ::) Also, my sis bought me TL tonight so I think I'll start a new game and stick with the smaller lots until my card gets fixed. Again, thanks for everyone's hard work on this wonderful world!

It's been sealed up for easier downloading. You just need to use a program like Winrar to extract the .sims3 file.  :)
