Why is subway closed?

I tried play for tips but i can not find a crowd of people.I tried theatrepPark near the subway and some private party.On the party was one sim+barman(big party).I did no tried all possible places,because Union Cove is large, but i tried the most logical places.So park in center and theatre should be full of people.I tried this in different times.

In Union Cove should be about 100 sims.Even in the most famous club are 2-3 sims! When i played Late night,there were mutch more sims in clubs.

Sorry, subway entrance is blocked by that trashcan, move it and it will work.
But other issue is strange, everywhere my Sim go there is a crowd, it is one of the things I like about UC, and many others reported the same. What time you go to play for tips? How long you play? Usually when my Sim visit a community lot, there is at least 3-4 of them and then 2-3 households arrive soon after my Sim. I even  find
Sims everywhere are giving a hard time for my klepto in UC, so sorry if I can't really help you with that.

There are a number of little things in a world this big, it's why game developers don't usually release a patch for one fix at a time. Information on errors is being gathered and a lot of things will be fixed at once. The team did do some testing, but since they can't see everything a lot of problems wouldn't present themselves until dozens were using it :)

Or crowding in a library ;D


I was stalking Sims getting out of the School, and since they were nice and went out one by one - last student left at 5.30PM. Plenty of children in this world ;D

Is that my kid? If it is, I'm leaving story progression off in this world! I'm not ready for kids in real life, so what makes story progression think I'm ready for a virtual pixelated one?  :P

I downloaded Union Cove yesterday and I've been playing a Differences in the Family Tree challenge in it. I'm four Sim days in and I haven't had a single problem and the lot I chose was the one on Moderator Hill. But I've got a pretty good computer if I do say so myself. I'm on high settings and having no more lag than I do in Bridgeport.

Which means I would not have been able to play it on my old desktop most likely. Thing couldn't even play Bridgeport! The game would only send the necessary Sims to lots!

But I'm loving it and I'll be posting a link to the story here shortly once I get some question asked (which would be off topic if I asked here so I'll run off to that section now).

I have one small item to add to the list of bugs unplanned features.

There is a plaque on the gazebo in the cemetery, but my sim thinks he can't get to it even though he's right in front of it.  I moved it in Edit Town to a regular wall and it works fine. 

By the way, it's a beautiful cemetery Joria!

I'm finally able to play too and I must say I really love this! Even in low settings it looks amazing and there is much to discover! I still need to visit the open air market. (only got to play a little yesterday, due to school projects :( ...) But thank you guys so much for making it!

I have to add my amazement and thanks to everyone elses...this world is wonderful!  I can not imagine the amount of work that went into it.

I wanted to share my experience trying to play the world because it might help others.  I have all expansion packs but a few months ago, I uninstalled Late Night.  I was so tired of vampire and celebrities.  So I first tried the regular way to install UC.  The installation went fine but when I tried to start a game with that world, my Sims crashed.   I removed the world, then tried using the Save file.   This time the button to select that world said something about not having game features required to play it.   I had about given up when I decided to reinstall Late Night, just to see if it made a difference.   I downloaded the world again from regular link, started a new game in UC and it runs great!  No idea why installed Late Night made a difference but that was the only thing I did differently.

Thanks again for the creativity and teamwork that resulted in this beautiful world.  Now the hard part....where do I start playing!  ;D

Thank you.  Now I have to go see what plaque it is!  It was the first thing I built there and I have no idea what's there anymore!  Guess I'd better look around.

Someone on the other forum said they couldn't get to the grills at the swimming pool because of fences.  The "fences" are those flat ones often used for borders in flower beds.  I thought Sims would step over those?  Let me know if anyone else has a problem with them and we'll fix them in the update.

EDIT:  Just wanted to say I have an inadequate video card since Generations, yet I am able to play Metro's latest challenges without changing a single thing in Union Cove.  Yes, it's very, very slow and I have to save, and then exit or it crashes, but it is doable and so much fun.  I doubt I'll have very good scores since I'm having such a blast playing there!  Anushka, I moved into your little starter farmhouse and it was a perfect, (and cheap), first house for someone who wanted a horse!
What?  Grannies can't play games?

It seems that the people moving out in my game were at least mostly (if not entirely) composed of NPCs, not townies, so that makes me happy.

One little thing, that was actually more funny than anything else, the gender specific doors at The Slurred Speakeacy are backwards. The girls door is on the bathroom with the urinal, my girl Sim was very confused as to why she couldn't get into the other bathroom. It actually took me awhile to figure out why she couldn't get into what I thought should be the ladies room :D

@Juxtaposition - LOL Noting the issue, but it is very funny ;D
@Joria - Thanks, that is exactly what I was hoping for; cheap, practical and with plenty of space for stables, gardens etc, and still pretty to look at ;D
I think I'm to blame for plaquete - I was hoping to place one on all lots, but after cemetary I realised it won't be easy and practical. And forgot to remove the plaquete.. Pool barbique works for my Sims!
@Justwright, thank you! If you now uninstall LN you should still be able to load Saved file from Union Cove. For it to work without some EP's you need to have both installed UC and saved file in saves, and use that save to start the game.

NPC's in my game have rather funny names, my Sim is trying to decide if he like Cherry Pie or Eartha Moved more. Or Chiquita Ham ;D

I think Union Cove is laid out much better than Appaloosa for raising horses.  Maybe not quite as many open spaces for enlarging farms but no need with so many to choose from.  The great part is they are all right there near to the training center and Equestrian thing.  As a matter of fact, so close I have to walk my horse there so it doesn't get there too soon and then get bored.  There really is no place in town my Sim can't get to super fast, even if it's taking a taxi or just jogging.  Ana you did a really good job with layout!

Does Union Cove work for Mac too? And this may sound stupid but how do I download it? I have all expansions but TownLife and Pets at the moment well I have them just not installed right now? I went to the download link and it brings up another page with more links but I have never done this before so I wanted to make sure I do it right. Do I click all the mirror links and download all of those or what?
Thanks in advance!

I'm very pouty about this world right now. It crashes and won't let me save.  :'( I was about to do a story about Agnes Crumplebottom and her puppy Lollypop.

As far as CC goes, I only have a few hair and clothes pieces from places I know and trust and I only download hair color, patterns, redesigns of EP/Base Game or Store content. from the exchange. The custom patterns I have are mostly Ausette's and Gheez' creations, and 98% of them are from the swap shop. I turned down my settings, too. I always do a virus scan just to be sure. I'll be buying SP's pretty soon, after MS is released. I'll just end up buying the others.

I have a nice HD monitor, (no more 32 bit) Nvidia GT 520 (Sims 2 is the only other game I play) and at least 4GB of RAM.

Chose just one, any of them, but one is enough. I never used Mac, but it works as any lot/sim/object you download from Swap Shop - once you download the installation file do the same as you do with with other Sim3Pack. files. If you don't have Pets installed you should download saved game too, it is in archive, and you treat it as one of your  own backed up saves - place it with other saved files. You need to have both the world installed and saved file placed, and start the game from that saved file if you don't have Pets.

It does that to most of us if we set graphic settings on high. I have to play it on everything low to save it without error 12 and without crashes. In this tread there are 2 solutions for those who have more than 2GB or RAM, but most likely you'll just need to lower the settings in your game to play it without issues.

When I first go into my game to play UC (at the main menu) and I lower the settings, I always get a message saying I should restart the application or my game will run with serious issues. Should I just quit and load it up again or should I just start my file?
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

Quit and start again. You can change settings in main menu, but still need to exit the game and start again.

Thank you Anushka! I think I will just wait till I install Pets in a few days because I know a lot of the families have pets so without it I don't know if once I installed pets if they would then have what they were intended to! I have waited this long a few more days won't kill me! Thank you though!

I like this world! I've been playing it for a while now, and it's running very smoothly. I've just seen one very small issue: It seems that the mailbox outside the "Downtown Dorms" apartment building is facing the wrong way; at least my Sim couldn't use it until I went to edit the lot using a cheat and turned it around.

Thanks to all the creators who made the world! And thanks also for the website and forum; I really like all the guides on the main website.

Long time user of your tips & tricks, just joined the forum to say how much I LOVE this world!  I've become a fan of collaborative projects, as they always seem better than a single effort.  But this is the most amazing I've seen so far!  Posted the link on my favorite Facebook groups, and they were all thrilled with it also.  I've been playing a familiar family on one of the 20x30 lots, and been amazed by the scenery.  I didn't have neighbors to begin with, but they've moved in since.  Like I said, SCENERY!!!

I also had the kid get the scavenger hunt opportunity.  It almost seems like a cheat, a free collection helper.  But I was happy to notice, the spawners are very nicely laid out!  I have yet to complete the opportunity (danged game crashing.  My fault, not yours.), but I want to run to each of the spawning points to check out the scenery.  It's been so awesome so far!  I have no complaints about any of the lots I've visited yet, only that the poor kid has yet to sell anything at a bake sale.

Thank you very much! We set the goal for scenery to be as beautiful and interesting as possible, and I'm so glad to hear that we all share the similar taste when it comes to it ;D I'm specially happy to be able to get all the small animals too without adding spawners to the lots and keeping the number of them just right!

And if there is going to be an update, when at the Grange I found a food truck park in the foundation. Not sure if it's meant to be there but there's no food truck coming.

Thanks Gogo, we will. We would also appretiate if you find and report anything to solve before releasing a version with fixed little issues we noted so far.

I also have to minor things.

1. In the bio of Sunset Beach it says there is a hot tub but really there isn't.

2. In the Jones household bio it says the sim is called Ella but the sim is called Elle. Not sure which is right.

3. In one of the apartments' bio it says bz Ausette instead by.

These may just be small things but they would be good to be corrected for the next update.
