Of all of those expansions packs and stuff packs used, I have only High-End Loft, and Late Night.
I heard that if you download something that has items you don't own, it will just replace them.
Is this true, or am I not able to use this world?

It will replace objects you don't have, but you must load the world from the save file that is provided in the .zip that you download. Place it where your usual saves go (Documents -> Electronic Arts -> The Sims 3 -> Saves) and pick it when you're at the main menu.

Union Cove uses content from a lot of EPs, so the world may or may not look drastically different.

Thanks ^^.

EDIT: Ahg. I hate to sound like a fool, but how do I install it? I downloaded and got the Zip file, but now I'm utterly lost. I've been looking for instructions as to installing the actual world, but I can't find any.

Did you use an unzipper to open the zip file?  It's been so long since I installed my copy I'm not sure what you do next, but I'm thinking you unzip the file and then copy/paste it into the Sims3 folder named downloads.

There are some new changes available to those playing Union Cove who have experienced a lot of lag while playing a dynasty.  Metro has given permission to use my new, edited lots in a legal ID.  Most of the lots have just a few changes you won't even notice, (like removing the spot lights and some flowers from the stadium), but some have major changes, (like removing an entire floor from Carl's Castle).  The lots still look pretty much like my original designs but removing a lot of the extras that really weren't needed for game play has lightened the load on the graphics and made play smoother and faster.  I was not able to play an ID there before but now I'm having a great deal of fun with it.  Some small issues, like dumpsters not working, were fixed as well.  You can download the improved lots from my mediafire file.

Ahh, thanks for the share, Joria!

So, since I've just downloaded UC, are these the steps to do:

  • Install Union Cove Seasons.Sims3Pack
  • Install all your updated lots
  • Extract the UnionCoveSeasonsSave.zip into EA\Sims3\Saves

Did I miss a step there?

BTW, I have Base (of course!), WA, Amb, and LN. No problem if I start using the provided Save, right?

I just encountered something in Union Cove which made me laugh and thought I'd share.

It's been so long since I've done much reading on the forum so forgive me if I've left questions unanswered.  I began a pretty good dynasty in UC recently and then failed, sigh, again, sigh, but haven't given up.  It really is a great place, (read - easy), to do a dynasty or a legacy.  The only difficulty can be story progression but you get that anywhere.  It's so fun to see the "famous" folks from other dynasties walking around and interacting with you!

This is a world I have so much fun with.  Thanks for all your hard work - it is also gorgeous and well thought out.   I play this and St. Claire more than I play EA worlds.

I recently installed Union Cove and I noticed that when I was at the festival lot, many of the sims kept playng the I'm stuck emotion in front of the kissing booths.  I'm not sure what they were trying to get at.  What could be causing this?

Were they using the kissing booth? Chances are they weren't able to and that is what is causing it, might be a glitch with the placement or something blocking access. See if your Sim can use it successfully, if not then just go into Edit Town and edit the lot and move the booth a bit.
