No, there is an empty large lot on Moderator's Hill.  Go up past the Equestrian Center it should be to the right up above it.

Haha. You live in the Let's Build a House! House.

Thank you!

I've dedicated a whole "The Sims 3" folder to this - turned all my graphics settings down and turned Advanced Rendering off.

Also, for legacies/immortal dynasties, do we have to place the 60 x 60 lot?

I think it is called Mod Hill Dynasty Lot?

Wow, wow, wow! A hearty thank-you to all the contributors. I already have a Townie decadynasty going, but this place was made for it. It's incredible. The houses are great, and the households all look intriguing. Thanks again to everyone who worked on this!

Haha I was just kidding.

Okay serious question:
Regarding using sims from this town in stories, do we still need to ask for permission from their creators? Because I could see that being confusing and difficult, and I'm kinda thinking that when people let their sims and houses be put in here they were letting them be used any way that people want but I could be wrong.

I have my Nvida GT 520, which I have all my settings on High, but not the highest and advanced rendering on. I don't have any distorted pets anymore, all EP's no SP's and the game crashes. Will going back to my low G33/G31 Chipset Defualt settings help? My card is supposed to be good too.

I got 4GB's on my Computer.

Suggestion: You think we can have an All EP/No SP? Or a Base Game+Pets only? I'd still love to play with Pam's four kitties.  :)

It doesn't really matter if Carl provides us with a Vanilla+Pets version, or all EP/No SP - the current one should work one any game patched up to (probably) 1.29. I have all the games listed except for OLS and TLS, so that content will be removed in my game.

Thank you Seabody. I thought there was a base game version but I could be wrong. I have all my Expansion Packs, but no Stuff Packs yet. That will change very soon though.


So I should go back to my old settings when I played on my Chipset then?

Just wanted to say, this world is awesome. But I had bad lagging, so I just quit. I know it's my GC and hopefully it will be fixed soon. Jeana, I don't know but you could try. With my Chipset, my graphics are at the lowest possible settings and it didn't crash, just lagged. And of course Pam's cats look really weird for me haha.

There is going to be a lot of lag for the average pc and worse if you have a bad graphics card, but it
 is playable though slow.  If you do not have the EP/SP's there is a saved file for you.  Follow the link on the first page of this message
where it says download.  When you click on download it will take you to a second page.  Under the top picture are bold words "saved file"
which you click on and save per the directions Carl posted. Hope that helps.

The only SP I don't have is Town Life and everything loaded fine, the houses are awesome, the entire town is fabulous, but it's just the lagging. It's bad in my Dynasty, but even worse in UC. How would downloading the other one help? I've been talking on the Technical Help board about my lag and I'm about at my wits end. Hopefully it'll get fixed when I get my new card. Thanks for the world though, and I seriously can't wait to get my card to play in it some more!!

I'm really worried that this town won't work for me. I'm on an old PC laptop and my games usually freeze up constantly. On the bright side while the downloading took forever, the installing took 5 seconds!

I'm going to load up my game now and see how it runs, finger crossed!  :D

There is. Go here and download the link underneath the words "Download Union Cove Now!". I can't stress it enough - underneath.

There were some CAW mods involved out of neccesity, but they weren't core mods (so they won't affect the downloader's game at all), and they were cleared by Carl and Pam before we started. We were very, very careful not to cause any bugs. Enjoy your camping trip, Chuckles!

EDIT:

That topic did come up when we were populating the town, and I think we decided that everyone should probably refrain from adding Sims they were especially close to. As long as you're respectful towards the creations of others (no "that house is the ugliest thing I've ever seen!"), I think you should be fine.  :)

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?
