I wondered if anyone noticed, but in Sundowners farm, my horse can't enter the stalls. A bubble appears showing routing failure. It can enter the one furthest away from the dog bed but it can't exit. O.o

I'm planning on having mixed gender twins in one of my games so I was wondering who in UC is a high enough level to tell the gender?

I think Tara James from my Maroon family might be able to. She's in Admin Hill.

We noticed that, and that lot is already fixed for updated version of the UC, thank you for letting us know and if you find any other - let us know while we are checking and preparing fixed and improved version of the UC.

Hi all!  Thanks to everyone who worked on this!

It's visually stunning, perfectly laid out, and we love it.

Sorry I can't write more, but have to get back to playing!

I love the Dreamweaver house in UC but had trouble with the two ladies running into each other -- and yelling that they couldn't get by each other -- at the top of the stairs. It was actually quite entertaining...LOL

I think I may have another problem with the world. Around 2 Weeks in, My sim went to Handsum Thyme to get the gender of the baby determined. But she couldn't as all the Thymes (Including their new foals) were stuck in the front garden.

I'm not sure if it was just me but to solve the problem I actually deleted the little front garden part and my Sim soon learnt she was having a boy.

Oh Thank you for these wonderful words! I'm glad you are enjoying it as much as we do!

I've noticed that too, even if they are able to climb them up they act as they can't come down ::) The Democrat is amazing house, just a prove that Dane is a true master, not just in modern style. Little Victor is another gem I love playing in ;D

A small thing to be fixed -- the mailbox at Suburban Dream is blocked by a hedge.

That said, I really enjoy this world!  I'm always finding cool things, like the flame fruit in the underground area at the Garden with ruins.

I've also noticed the problem in the Thyme house front garden. Dad couldn't get to the baby to take her into the house. I do love that house though..so beautifully decorated. I love the Doll house too. This is fast becoming my favorite town. Too bad my health issues prevent me from sitting at the computer and playing for any length of time. Or I'd be playing all the time ;) I did find a cool iPad forum reader so I can keep up with other people's stories, etc on the forum.

Yeah, sorry about that  :-[. It ended up displaced inside the bottom floor, so you can just use "testingcheatsenabled true" and "restrictbuildbuyinbuildings off" to move it back outside. I've already gotten fixed copies of both apartments to Anushka for the next version of Union Cove.

Do you know when the next version of UC comes out? So far I just had trouble with objects in houses being placed to close together, so my sim couldn't get in a shower or near the stove, which isn't that big of a deal. Oh yeah I also saw the thing with the waterfall. For me sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Other then that I still think you guys did a great job! I'm having fun looking for seeds and stuff!

Thanks, Ausette.  I'll try that next time. I moved my family to an empty lot they can afford and I'm building them a house there. A very simple house...I have trouble building - unlike you talented people.

Just a quick mention: I had quite a lagging problem but when I turned off mirror reflections, it disappeared. I'm sure it helps with other towns as well.

This is a PM I received from a challenge player...

In Union Cove, there is a wastebasket blocking the entrance to the subway, making it impossible to play for tips there. You can't go into Build mode, so there's no way to add a subway to a property you're upgrading. You can't add a bar with a subway on its lot, because there are plenty of bars in Union Cove. You can't blow up the wastebasket (I've tried).

I am hoping this will be corrected asap given the challenge is over in two and a half weeks.

Try using "testingcheatsenabled true" to delete the wastebasket (cheats are allowed in the challenges if it it's to fix bugs, right?). We'll add that to the list of things to fix.

I started my first dynasty in UC and so far I love it. I'm a bit lost sometimes but the characters my sims encounter are very funny.

Hi forum,

A big thank you to all the people concerned who made this fabulous world.  I love it, it's enchanting.  I will say that I still consider myself a newbie even with over 2,000 hours of playing TS3.  My son, the computer geek, built my computer so I've no idea why everything works beautifully and super smooth... but it does...did.

I didn't have any problems with UC until last night.  Today it was still glitchy and resetSim didn't seem to rectify it so I hunted around and found the wild horse foal stuck in the little garden down the stairs at the ruins pond.  I have no idea how the foal got there but it was really really hungry and wouldn't let my Sim befriend it to feed it.  Can the foal not graze like the adult wild horses do?  I regret I had to delete it because I didn't know how else to move it.  Will this cause a problem with my game?

Also I've yet to find a pink diamond.  I'm guessing there must be some, but I've had the ultimate invention opportunity open for more than 2 sim weeks and not one has spawned in that time.   I've noted the sites where Tanzanite spawns because I've found these are often the pre-spawners for pink diamonds.  No such luck yet?

Can I ask, why are there no churches in the game?  Even if it were only a rabbithole.  Is religion just a big no-no.  I ask because it would be nice to have my Sims with a lovely church in the wedding photo.  I could pretty up the Mausoleum but that seems just creepy.

And Pam, you're the head honcho at the Bistro where my Sim's hubby works and my law enforcement Sim found tiberium in your bin.  By the way, Carl doesn't have a rubbish bin to rummage through, wonder why?. 

To reiterate, I really really love this world.   It's Bonzer!

That is in a basement I suspect, was it the one with the fantasy tree in it? If so then Horses can only graze on terrain and grass. They wouldn't be able to graze down there as it is flooring from the basement under the flowers which can't be eaten I don't think. Not sure about the deleting, some say it does and others say it doesn't.

Also I've yet to find a pink diamond.  I'm guessing there must be some, but I've had the ultimate invention opportunity open for more than 2 sim weeks and not one has spawned in that time.   I've noted the sites where Tanzanite spawns because I've found these are often the pre-spawners for pink diamonds.  No such luck yet?

Pink Diamonds are very rare anyway, I have only ever found three in the wild. There are spawners for them in the World. If there are specific places Anushka will know.

Can I ask, why are there no churches in the game?  Even if it were only a rabbithole.  Is religion just a big no-no.  I ask because it would be nice to have my Sims with a lovely church in the wedding photo.  I could pretty up the Mausoleum but that seems just creepy.

Our Forum doesn't discuss Religion as this Forum is open to anyone who plays The Sims 3. So naturally we did not include any as the Forum was producing the World and it would be contradictory to do so. It's up to each player what they do with their game but we decided to keep any Religion out of our World.

A big thank you to all the people concerned who made this fabulous world.  I love it, it's enchanting. 

I'm glad you are loving it, it's so great for people to just make the effort to stop by and tell us!  :)
