Hi Gogo.  Nope, the Grange remains a Late Night venue, Dance Club.  I just added a karaoke machine to an already existing outdoor dance floor area just in case someone felt like a sing along.  lol  We are actually making the buildings and placing ST stuff in the remodel although I'm not sure how we'll handle the rabbit holes.

One of the things planned is remaking the Pier to be more of a ST venue.  It is just a Hang Out at the moment and that one will get changed to become a Live Show or something else appropriate.  I'm thinking of removing the pool and placing a stage area there in the center, and changing some of the interiors of the buildings to be more appropriate.  Maybe have the souvenir shop be full of posters for sale like you'd find at concerts during intermissions and add a few different game things to the Game Place building on the pier. 

We haven't completely agreed on whether or not we'll use these as they are or not, but if you want to replace the buildings with these I've remodeled, I'm adding the download for those of you who want to try them out.  Remember, these are not yet official.

What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Wow... Just Wow. I'm nearly without words.  I've been avoiding Sims for quite awhile now and only recently has my schedule opened up enough to play again. Last week, I made some progress on my second try at a Dynasty, only to have the first heir get smacked dead by a meteorite. Poor Fish Stick, she was cooked.

I went out and got Generations, Pets and Showtime all at once and came back to discover that my main drive was data-clogged and decided to do the dreaded 'full re-install' so I could put the whole thing on the backup disc drive.  While reloading everything and the kitchen sink, I took some time to peruse the guide a bit, just to preview what was new, cool and/or outrageous.

Imagine my surprise when I found the gift of the Forum. OMG OMG OMG! ZOINKS!  HULLABALOO! The preview pics of UC were dazzling, and I got very excited about playing it for the first time.   Finished with the re-load and went straight to UC.   I've been playing it nearly non-stop, wanting to get some serious exploration done before giving my Immortal Dynasty a third try, but I can't imagine playing in any other town after this one, ever again.  Even the wife was so impressed she wanted to play.  So we've been playing nice and taking turns with my little explorer family.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, everyone who has touched this project.   Truly a Masterpiece for the Ages, and thank you everyone who donated anything.  This is going to suck up many, many hours of playtime in the weeks and months (and likely years) to come.

Mud

P.S.  Thanks again for the marvelous town, I look forward to bringing the Stick Dynasty to life for the third (and hopefully final, successful) time in a Union Cove near you.

I've downloaded this town and have really been enjoying looking at the households.  They are so beautiful and well designed.  One small nitpick that I have with it is a lot of the family descriptions have grammatical errors.  I'd like to volunteer to help with their editing for the next version, in case you'd be interested.

Could you compile a list of the ones you have noticed so that we know which ones to look out for? Next time I open UC up which will be to build some Showtime Additions I'll also make a list of ones I spot.  :)

Sure, I'll make a list and PM them to you.

First of all thank you to all the people that made Union Cove.

But am I the only person having trouble with Metro’s Mansion by Danefaith in Union Cove?

I haven't found anywhere in The Sims that lets you use 2 doors directions on an elevator. So the deco elevator on the top floor needs to be turn anti-clockwise 90 degrees.

The basement elevator is 1 square off so it needs to moved closer to the basement bathroom.

I also have troubles with my sim walking around into the master bedroom (next to the fireplace) to try and get books from the right side of the big TV.

I guess Metro’s Mansion by Danefaith wasn't fully tested before being added to Union Cove.
Also, I found that 3 out of car parks work. If you remove the car from the parking next to the fence or the motor bike, they won't go back.



I love use the Union Cove and will keep using it.

Are any new households being added in for Showtime?  A household of performers would be pretty cool.

There were no planned additions currently for new Sims to be added, the idea had completely slipped me by that there may be a need for some performing talent to have to shine!  :)

But am I the only person having trouble with Metro’s Mansion by Danefaith in Union Cove?

Thanks for raising this possible issue. I'll check in my game and see if I experience the same thing.

May I contribute with my idol, Lady Gaga? It's going to be a huge challenge for me, being that it will be CC free, of course, and the outfits are a bit too...plain. But I think Gaga would make a great edition with the following traits:
-Insane
-Good
-Natural Born Performer
-Dramatic
-Star Quality

Or Virtuoso instead of Dramatic.

I said we weren't planning to add any Sims to this update as of yet. I don't think we will be adding Sims as there is already a very large population. :)

Can you give us a date as to when you'll be finished with the new Showtime community lots? I just got showtime and can't wait to have those new venues!

Will you be changing some sims then? Simfest would be unbearable boring otherwise.

It hasn't been discussed yet. I was just saying there is no definite additions of Sims as there is already a very large population. We may have to add or change some sims though but which I don't know.  :)

The Art Gallery has some routing issues that I think need some looking into.

The dance floor in the Grange is also iffy.  Inviting another Sim to dance with your Sim gives them a 'route is blocked' bubble thought.

I'm in the works of an upgrade on the Sheen Household, and I will put it up for grabs, even if it doesn't make UC, I still encourage people to use it anyways. The update is mostly to establish the relationships between Polanco and his master's/guardians.

The Updated Sheen household I'm planning to include:
 
  • Cat Essentials: Kitty bowl, litter box, toys and condo
  • Established relationships between Polanco and his owners
  • Jeana and Polanco will be BFF's
  • Polanco dislikes Charlie, but will have a repairable relationship

Also, there will be a few trait updates in the household as well, as some wardrobe changes. WARNING: Please do not drink or eat, when looking at Mr.Sheen's new athletic attire.
