Wow! Amazing, beautiful, over whelming, and so much fun!

I spent the last two hours getting acquainted with this new world to explore, and it is jaw dropping awesome all over the place! It feels awesome to have donated some Sims to this awesome town.  The team who did all the work, it's fantastic, I love it!

In my first Sim week, my Sim self met both the Dreamweaver household, and the De D'Onlyn household, I nearly fell over laughing :D Talk about an awesome start.

I'm going to find it hard to ever go back to playing anywhere else.
You can call me Juxt

The thing I love about this world the most is how it fully encompasses the EPs. I used the Naga Sunset Valley for so long so I could experience all the EP stuff but I honestly got bored with the townies. The only problem is that I am going to feel bad remodeling and redecorating the beautiful houses  :(.

I totally ditched my 'to-do' list for the evening in order to play with this and by the time I turned it off for the evening it was already 1am lol.

Side note: Thank you for the tip on avoiding 'save and quit' I would have hated to lose my Union Cove newbie this early in the game.

Kindest Regards
KJ

I am one of the happiest people in the world right now.  One, because all the hard work is done, even if there are places where we team members are second guessing ourselves and wishing we could do this or that.  It was wonderful to work on and hard to put it down and wait with all of you for the reveal.  That was actually a lot of fun! 

Two I'm happy because now I can actually play it just as a player and not have to worry about is this right or that right!  (Imagine my chagrin when I checked a house, several downloads of remodels later, to find I'd built a lovely bedroom and no way to enter it!  No door! lol)  So I can just kick back now and enjoy meeting all these wonderful Sim people and make friends with them.  Mye Thyme and Hansome will have a lot of fun with you all.

Three, I'm happiest because of how much you all love what we have done.  Your joy in it fills me with joy and has made this one of the best holiday seasons ever!

I personally cannot wait to start my decadynasty in Union Cove. It is going to be such a big thrill for me to use Hebe as one of my founders for a decadynasty. I just need to figure out who the spouse should be.

Oh me too Samoht! I'm still trying to decide should I continue my Buznik girl or start the dynasty first LOL. In any case it will be taking pictures all the time!
I need a signature as yours Samoht!

I put the community lots list in one of the posts Carl reserved and I am working on residential/household list so you all can see who is living where, which houses are empty, value of all of them, and of course, who made it (both the house and the household :) )

Ratchie, it took me ages to figure who will I chose as a dynasty spose! Having so many great single YA's made it very very difficult to decide. Can't wait to read that story and I can only imagine how will Thea fit in there LOL

EDIT: I realized I used "!" at the end of all sentences.. I am that excited ;D

The more I explore UC the more absolutely amazed I am.  I cannot even begin to imagine the countless hours all the members of the Top Secret Team put in to create this masterpiece.  I'm so overwhelmed by the beauty and detail of this new world that I don't even know where to begin when I open my game file.  I just kind of sit in front of the screen with my mouth hanging open and tears in my eyes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you and a million more to all of you who have worked so tirelessly to bring us this gem.  This surprise was most definitely worth the wait, and then some!

Since I don't have WA/Generations installed right now (For reasons already mentioned, I believe) I did the whole save file thing, but it pops up as an unplayable save file ??? So what am I supposed to do? :P

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P

That is quite strange! you installed the world, extracted saved file in save folder,  and in main menu there is an icon which said that or? Can you be specific about it?

Yeah, there's an icon. It updated as soon as we started it up, and when we got to the main menu of the Sims 3 (Where you pick which file), it was an unplayable file in saves because it said I didn't have all the expansion packs.  :o Which is what I thought the particular download was for.  ???

Sadly I can't play in it either because of the software updates. I'm on dial up and it would take forever.

Edit. Looks like I'll be waiting till March.  :(

Okay so with the settings does this mean I just turn all of them all the way down and that should help?
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

Yes, that should help. You could start at the bottom, try adding whatever details appeal most to you and gradually raise them until you find a good spot.

Zap, if you have any of the EP's installed that might be what is messing up that file.  Have you tried the straight download?  Not sure if that would work or not, (lot of trees from WA used), but you might give it a shot.  Also, try all the suggestions KJ mentioned.

My game generally hates new stuff, I have a gaming machine that should in theory be able to handle TS3 and then some more. Yet every time I attempt to install something new (world, content or patch), it looks at me as if to say 'pah me work, I think not'. The only way around this that is to start from the top. Uninstalling all my custom content (EA or otherwise), then trying to install. If that doesn't work I try the new fangled time saving factory reset. If that should also fail me I start from the very beginning, cursing TS3 to the moon and back. After a complete uninstall I always perform a disk clean up, a registry clean, a scan disk and a defrag. Ideally you should also do a disk clean up, scan disk and defrag after installation too, but who has time for that? lol

Lastly install all your custom content (EA or otherwise) and save files.

I have never failed to install my shiny new things using this method.

Kindest Regards
KJ

KJ do you use Revo to uninstall your games?  It is a free download that was suggested to me by EA tech support when I was having some serious problems with the game.  It cleans everything, including all the hidden files, registry etc. etc.  and it is FAST and simple.  I am a total bust when it comes to tech stuff but it's really idiot proof, which is why I can use it!  lol  There are a couple of steps to do but it is quite easy and fast.

Guys, it's best to save often in UC. I just lost about three minutes but it could have been 30!

Same here, can't wait to post my first chapter of my Legacy either!  :D Oh and I was surprised that my Legacy File, which doesn't have a house yet is actually not bad at saving length so far, about 2-3 minutes roughly. Only on loading the world it seems to be really slow. Oh and the Sunsets are quite beautiful, I'm looking for the prime wedding spot in the World. Not that anyones getting married yet, I just have to plan these things!  :)
