Spork- maybe you could ask people if they wanted to make a simself and have you put it in the town. Or maybe you could take requests for a certain sim people want. (celebs for example.)
Great idea! But first before I make any promises... I need to find out how to upload the town and if I can upload it with sims in it.

You could ask Naga (Maker of Sunset Valley 2.0) It will probably involve a mod or something though  :-X

@Spork-tastic, I think you have overlooked my previous post.

I think the only way to share this world with the community is to upload the save file (the corresponding folder found in (My) Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves) to a free file sharing site like Mediafire or 4shared and then sharing the link.

This way you can also upload the town with sims in it. You do not need a mod to do this. You should just upload the save file of the town (it's a folder, something like town.sims3) to one of the file sharing sites I linked to (I think you'll also need to sign up for a free account, but I'm not sure) and share the link here.

I want to do something like this... I can't just bulldoze a whole bunch of lots in Sunset Valley and rebuild? I'm guessing there is no way to share if I do that?  :-\
Because I absolutely despise Create a World's camera style. It moves so  slow! I'll use it as a last resort, but... eurgh :(
Find my builds here. | Last Created; Cubeached
Also, feel free to request a home by PMing me! Always happy to help.

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

The town looks great! I'd love to get around to doing something like this one day. Might even experiment with CAW if my boyfriend will let me use his high-spec computer  ;)

I love the town! But, I have a question. I don't think I have ever played on a town with more than one school in it. How does that work? I know the game automatically puts the children and teens in the school that is there, but if there is more than one, do you have to enroll them? Or are those just community buildings you made to look like schools?

Good Question, I haven't actually played this town yet. I am not sure which school is currently the default but say the default is Arena Heights Public School and you want your Sim to go to All Stars, when it is time to go to school click the school you want and your Sim will go there, I think after once you do that once it will default to that school.

Okay, I guess that makes sense. I was just wondering because I thought it might be like boarding schools where you have to phone and enroll.

This is a bunch of random lots I built all around...

Name: Willow Pond Park
Why?: Backdrop for Shelbawitz Hotel Wedding Ceremony space.
Location: Paprika Island Way
From the Ceremony space...

From the road...


Name:Phi Phi's Fabulous Fro Salon
Location: Paprika Island Way


Name: Lawn-Dry Shack
Location: Paprika Island Way


Name: Prellington Beach Fire Squad
Location: Paprika Island Way


Name: Opalhill Pet Cemetery
Location: Opal Gardens Road.


1st mansion! Well is this a mansion?
Location: Opal Gardens Road




Like the lots? For those interesting in uploading the game and playing on it (once complete) I have added bonus lots, I have built 3 so far. They are just random little places you will have to explore once you have the game. P.S I will be using NO custom content on this world so it will be easier to upload. Games needed: Sims 3 pets, Sims 3 Ambitions, Sims 3 late night, and plain old Sims 3 (duh).

When living on Paprika Island either in Arena Heights, Prellington Beach, or Opal Gardens you will want a place to send the kiddies! Welcome to camp Tijiwoni! Pronounced Tea-G-Wawn-E.

When you arrive you must check into the arrival center. The bath house is also located on the same lot.
Location: In the West Hiding Hills.


Then you will want to find you cabin. There are 3 cabin lots, 1-3, 4-6, 7-9. Each cabin (3 per lot) has...
-3 single beds
-hamper
-outdoor grill
-fire pit
-picnic table
-washing machine
-sprinkler
-clothesline
This is Cabins 1-3.




Then you will want to go meet the other campers at the lake:
Here you can swim, fish, hike, and socialize.


P.S I posted this question earlier:

P.S That's for all the comments!
If anyone can answer it that would be great.[/i][/size]

Ok I have another question for those you are interested in downloading this town... Would you like me to fill the whole town up or leave some space for building of your own?

I personally would like you to do all rabbit holes and community buildings, but leave some residential lots to build homes. This is just because I like to build homes of my own for stories, but I find community areas harder to build and quite tedious. This is just me, we'll have to see what other people have to say, and of course you have the final say.  :D

Ok my fellow readers I am excited and extremely proud to say this is my LAST building entry! Stage 2 is COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well... after this entry. I posted a question early and I am gonna ask it again...
When I upload this to a file-sharing website, what folder and label would it be under, and how would I get to said folder?
Please answer it!
Any who, the next stage is Sim-tastic! I also have another personal opinion question...
When I place the Sims in the town, would you prefer them to be a little played, like have jobs and stuff?

Here are my last buildings...
Location: Opal Garden Rd.


This is a BIG house with pool and stage in back yard. Also, for those pesky in-laws that keep visiting, there's a pool house!

Next door
Location: Opal Garden Rd.

Is a slightly smaller home that has that more Bungelo (i don't know how to spell it) -like style.

A little North is
Location:Opal Garden Rd.

Its a nice sized home with a big garden. An Eco hot spot!


On a new street
Location: Checco Bay Lane (Checco Bay is the name of the water)
Home Name: Candy-Coated Realness

Diabetics beware! This home is sweet enough to eat. Colorful and fun the Salmon-Sea foam home is ready to move in.

Alright, this is the end of the building stage. But, you haven't seen it all, there is a total of 7 bonus lots for you to explore once on the game. But I haven't filled the whole town so for those who love to build can enjoy the open spaces.

I will begin stage 3 shortly. Maybe even today.
Thank you so much for all the comments and lets all cross our fingers and hope that this is up-loadable.
Again, please answer my questions  ::).
