*Also posted in Exploring Union Cove*

I must say, this world is GORGEOUS!


I relocated Agnes Crumplebottom to Union Cove and decided she needed some love in her life. I went with Barnabas Collins (Dark Shadows 2012 version).

Here they are gazing at the stars (not yet together)


Agnes is clearly smitten after being asked to go steady ^_^


My simself's victorian re-located to Union Cove...with the creepy ice cream truck moseying over. Moved the "Character" house to a new location.


View from my back yard! You can see the gardens/ruins to the right. :)



Off saving Zelda *again*

Currently it isn't planned simply because of how large the world is and constant upgrades take time and can cause problems. That isn't set in stone though but like I say currently there are no plans to keep updating, we settled for just updating for Showtime since it required a few new Lots. Whereas not all EPs will provide additional lots.
It's been announced that Seasons is coming out with several new lots. Of course, the player can always manually place those.

Slight problem with this. I thought I'd get my my sim to go and buy some books, and some groceries. And I can't! There is the center park stores, but I can't use them. I do have all ep's and sp's except for the latest ones (Katy Perry, who I even had to look up on the internet to find out who she was!, and Diesel.) Can I really not go anywhere in UC to buy anything? Seems a little silly to me.

You say the rabbit holes are there but you can't use them? If so then it's clearly a bug and was not intended to be like that. Try replacing the broken Rabbit Holes through Edit Town.

Problem is, it seems to be the grocery store and bookstore on one lot, which stops them from working. I'll have to play around with it.

I don't see how that would cause a problem considering in SV there is the grocery store, theatre and book store on one lot.

Ah, thank you kindly for your response :)

Is there a certain lot that you can think of that would fit the campground or wedding arch without looking cluttered or would I need to buy one of the cheap lots and decorate?

Also, is there an album that contains Union Cove pictures or anything? I absolutely love pictures ;D

A good place for a wedding is by the lake.  Also, there is an empty 50x50 lot that could be transformed into a campground or wedding chapel area.  Agnezawars has a really lovely wedding chapel that has everything a bride and groom could want, including a place for that honeymoon first night.  It can be found here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5883700  Her chapel does not require a huge lot.  I think it is on 30x30 but won't swear to that. 

I would love to see a campground at that lake, but as Tom said, the more changes you make the more problems you run into.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Wasn't there a bug that you can't buy groceries when you have certain items in your inventory?
I don't remember exactly how it was, maybe someone can help me refresh my memory :)

It sounds lovely and I would love to try it... Hate it when the Sims 3 website is down... again...

Think it was special seeds in inventory that were causing that bug. Robbo, have you tried clicking on rabbitholes and you have no options or problem is in something else?

Lake/waterfall lot is quite suitable but also laud lot, and there is Pier and the beach for more eventfull wedding places, but even the art gallery can be very interesting and beautiful place for that. It mostly depends on personal wishes and taste and thankfully Union Cove is full of wonderful lots and sights for that special day :)

A lot of the community lots use LN content as well as the modern buildings. The farm and more rural homes are the main areas for Pets content. Town Life wasn't used as much but it may have bits in. When I played without it I didn't notice anything missing. OLs is similar to TLs, it was an older SP so it will have been used more but it's merely cosmetic additions really. I would say that the main expansions in this world would be WA, LN and possibly Ambitions.

No, it will all be replaced with something you do have by the game.

Yes, you have to download the Save File instead.

I have the save file, but it says it cannot play because the World is not installed.  I can select Union Cove on the "Downloads" section of my launcher, but I can't get it to install, that option is grayed out.

Just remembered you don't have Pets, that seems to be causing errors. Apparently there is an item in the Pets EP which if you don't have Pets will not be replaced or something, the coding is wrong in it? I think Anushka said that seems to be causing a problem for people without Pets. Trouble is there isn't an easy way to find out what the item is.

To all the makers of this wonderful world.
I don't know if I said this already (else it is definately worth saying again ;) ), but you really have done a terrific job in updating this world! Also very nice to see that some minor mistakes have been fixed. Thank you all very much!

There is one thing I just noticed for the first time. I see that the roofing of the house The Kin of the family Jin made by Anushka isn't completely correct. You can see this when you look at the back side of the house. This is a minor detail though and doesn't matter for playing, but I just thought you might want to know this for if there ever may be another update :)

Thank you Odie, I've noticed that too late, and another similar one on Carl's Castle terace flooring. Until the next update I hope we will find and fix most if not all of those little mistakes, and make UC as close to perfection as it is possible.

Unfortunally I am still looking for the solution of this problem that UC can't be installed without Pets, and it is not likely to be fixed without an update by EA.

Don't worry about it. For me, UC is by far the closest to perfection compared to all other worlds!

What is the item causing the problem? I don't know if that are many items, but can't you just delete them for a version for people without pets?

I think the problem might be the actual pet part of pets. As in, some households have dogs, cats and horses.

I'm thinking it's the Pet Store itself.  Using a "pet register" is different from having the actual pet store that came as a premium item for pre-ordering the EP.  I could be wrong on this but I'd bet that's the problem item.  Ana if we take out the pet store it won't be that big of a deal and perhaps we could add a pet register somewhere or just leave it out.  If you have Pets at all you can get anything you'd buy in the store either from your regular Pets files or buydebug anyway.  The store is mostly cosmetic, although it does function if you have Pets.

Problem with Pets and CAW is that once you place object in CAW it is saved in Global Layer in some sort of cashe files, and that is not possible to delete. I even loaded and exported UC with Pets uninstalled and still wasn't able to install it in the game.
I don't have premium content Pet Store and I think we did used built lot with Pet Register there, not that premium one - as I couldn't add it in UC without having it in my game. That lot wasn't changed with this latest update of UC neither. Problem appeared with the patch and I hope that with Supernatural and Seasons it will be solved. For now my hands are tied :(

Can't it be uploaded as a different save game where the pet register has been deleted? Or does the game still think it's there, because it is build-in in the world?
I don't know if it makes any sense what I say, but I just want to help...
