Sorry if this was mentioned before....but does anyone have a list of the Sims that inhabit the world?

Is it populated by offering a save file or how does that work? I am unable to play the world on my laptop, and the desktop is off campus, so my apologies for not being able to check myself.

The official townie list is on this thread. Note that it is split into two posts because there are a lot of townies in UC.

While there is a save file provided, the population is built into the world itself. So if you opened a fresh Union Cove, everyone would be there. The save file to for people who don't all the required EPs, as opening it without the save file would result in a game crash.

Its just so cool. I mean how do you even get into CAW. It just blows my mind :)

CAW is a free download you can get from the official, EA Sims3 website.  There is also a childboard for builders in this forum in the construction board.  I would post links but am responding on my hubbie's notebook and having a hard time figuring it out.  Technology challenged!
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

V2 does not have Seasons in it so would be a little smaller and easier for those who don't have Seasons and I don't think it's set up for SN either.  I'd keep it for awhile, Carl.  Not sure if there will be any changes for University but I know some updates will be in the works to correct the current, minor, issues

Thank you, Joria. I was unsure if the updates that have been released had made it so that you don't need either EP for the Seasons update to be the clear winner for everyone. In my mind I imagined that Seasons/SN content would be left out automatically, meaning some of the other small bugfixes could be enjoyed by people without owning either of them.

It seems even with the launcher fixes they put in a good portion of people are still unable to use UC due to PC memory limitations and bugs within the game itself. Sadly we can do little to nothing about either of those things while retaining the original vision of the World.

After playing firefighter in UC for some time, I noticed that some houses with spiral staircases have pathing problems when you try to use them to go down.

On the other hand, good work with making the town hall having multiple entrances.

High school graduation would be much more pain if every sim had to use the same door.

I have searched and searched on this and had no luck so my apologies if I missed the answer somewhere.

I just started in Union Cove.  My evil sim desperately wishes to become a Criminal Mastermind.  He went immediately to False Information, Inc, but there seems to be no opportunity to become a criminal.

Do I simply need to wait a while?

Have you tried going to the library and getting a job through the computer or through a newspaper?

Yes, no option for Criminal was available.

Ultimately I edited the town and there was no building that represented a Criminal HQ over at False Information, so I added a Smugglers Den and was able to get in the career.

Possibly the default HQ is one from an expansion I don't have?  The large building with the garage spots was one level and had no roof, so it looked rather incomplete.

Would there in the future possibly a sims 3 package file download for Mac users?  :P ;D

I finally downloaded Union Cove and after half an hour of just looking at the world I am amazed. Everything is so beautiful and well built and I think I will be spending a lot more time playing with it :) Everyone did an amazing job.

Also, the waterfall is amazing:
From the moment I fell down that rabbit hole I've been told what I must do and who I must be. I've been shrunk, stretched, scratched and stuffed into a teapot. I've been accused of being Alice, and of not being Alice, but this is my dream. I'll decide where it goes from here.

I was never able to run Union Cove before because of my poor computer, but as I have a new comp, I decided to try it again.  It works great - and I have to say after 2 hours looking at everything - it is AMAZING! Thank you to all who worked on it. I can't wait to play it!

Hi,

Can anyone confirm if version 3 works with all packs installed even University?

Thanks

There shouldn't be any reason that version 3 should break with University installed.

I realise that this question may be too early, but is there plan for updating Union Cove for Island Paradise?

It looks amazing, but unfortunately I don't have any expansion packs. I have CAW, and I am sure that I would never be able to build something like Union Cove! Well done everyone!  :)

I'd love to try out Union Cove, but I'm unable to download it.  It gets to about 16% - and takes a long time doing that - then just terminally hangs.  Is there any other source for download besides the flynnarrowstar.com site?

Thanks Twinmum... unfortunately, when I go to the link and click the link that says Click Here to Download, it takes me to this site http://www.flynnarrowstarr.com/files/carl_sims3/unioncoveseasons.zip, which downloads between 2 and 10 mb of the file, steadily throttling down until it reaches 0 bps and stops.  I've even tried different browsers, but no dice.   :(

I have to say that any download issues always seem to be intermittent. It is an external server provided by the generous Mr. Flynn ArrowStarr along with his Mrs. Flynn. They get unlimited bandwidth with their host, and that host may have throttled the download for some reason. I'm wondering if you're on slow or fast internet, as I am able to cap their server's speed and download the entire file in about 2 minutes (just tested). Any time it doesn't work, I would suggest a person come back the next day to try again, perhaps at a different time of day (in case you're trying during the peak hours, whatever they may be).

They were very kind to offer without me directly asking them and saved us a lot of headaches with free file transfer services like mediafire. Their donation of the ftp server has saved us thousands in bandwidth costs sharing this world, as it's been downloaded over 120k times at this point. Our host is not so nice about bandwidth charges but fits my needs as a webmaster by being very flexible :)

Will there be an update to include Isla Paradiso?  Maybe toss in a few community lots that are missing?

I play this world almost all the time and love it.  I have no problem adding things like a nectary or the new rennaisance fair, just wondered if there would be a "final" version that will include all expansions, especially knowing that there will be no more expansions.  The only other world that can really hold my attention is Jericho, but it is not populated and so it is not nearly as fun...I have to be in the mood for Jericho...whereas UC is always ready to entertain me.

Even now I still find new little things I have missed before.  Just a couple weeks ago when I started my latest game in UC, I discovered the little tiny house that has like a landing pad on top of it...can't for the life of me remember what it is called now.  I love it, so unique.  But that is just par for the course for UC, everything is so unique and so different it just makes playing there so much more enjoyable.

edit: okay the lot is called A.L.U. and it is basically right in front of the arena.  So awesome.

There are no plans to update UC any further at the moment. Anuhska who built UC in CAW is not very active in Sims any more. You can always build your own dive lots, I'm not sure if anyone has tried in UC or not yet but I'm sure it should work.  :)

I wanted to try this world for a long time but my old computer wouldn't play it smoothly but now I finally have a computer that will handle this world and now it's my new favorite world. :) Everyone done a great job putting this world together.
Only problem I've hit so far is I couldn't rummage through one of the dumpsters at the junk yard. But a quick edit of the lot to move the street cones that are in front of it took care of that problem.
