The Sims 4 StrangerVille Town
Important Places Around The Neighborhood

The Sims 4 Strangerville Game Pack has a unique investigation mechanic at its core. In the course of the investigation you'll need to go to several places in town. For that reason, I thought I'd make a map of StrangerVille for people who own it or want to see the town before they make a buying decision. Here's a quick guide to the places you need to visit in StrangerVille:
The Secret Lab
The (Redacted) Lab is located in a crater north of town. It's a good place to find the strange plants and evidence for the investigation. Going there is key to solving the Mystery of StrangerVille.
The secret laboratory sits in a crater to the north of the main town. It's completely abandoned and requires some work before you can explore deeper into it. There are computers in the lab that can be hacked with programming level 3.
Keep an eye out for files like this one. You need 15 pieces of evidence to assemble a dossier and prove something is going on in this town.
Evidence files are found in several households in town, as well as the secret lab. They don't always contain something useful but it's always worth checking.
Strange Plants are found around the neighborhoods in StrangerVille
Strange plants are scattered around this world. You can take a picture of them to get your first evidence. Be sure to switch to the StrangerVille Mystery aspiration (found under location aspirations) to get the maximum benefit from participating in the story!
The Curio/Conspiracy Shop
You can buy a tin-foil hat under the clothing menu here. The secret inventory is used during the investigation, and only for those who have proven themselves to have found information of value.
At this little roadside stall, you can talk to a conspiracy theorist who will sell you useful things. You'll find this little place right next to the crashed plane, along the road. If you like, you can purchase a tin-foil hat from them but it is merely cosmetic. I still got zombified even wearing one of these. Talk to them to learn a bit about the mystery of StrangerVille and they'll give you some guidance to help you to gather evidence.
You can also buy books here, but they seem to be regular books. The lava lamps (pictured near the foreground in the picture above) are kinda cool and come in a few colors. This stall is also a place to purchase bugs that can be planted on Sims to listen in on them and very helpful in gathering evidence for the investigation when used on a Scientist. You may also blackmail Sims if you get some juicy info! If you buy the Listening Device in buy mode, you can purchase bugs from it for $25 each without visiting this stall.

It's easy to meet Scientists at the library, who are investigating the town's mystery and may provide valuable information.
At the Library, a lot of Scientists tend to gather. They can give you important information about Strangerville, particularly if you purchase a listening station (buy mode miscellaneous electronics) and snoop on their conversations.
Click to Enlarge. The bar in StrangerVille is a good place to meet military when you need them for your investigation. They're typically in uniform so easy to spot, but also spawn around town in other places.
Later in the investigation, you will be more likely to meet military types at the bar in the center of the town.
The Plane Crash
The plane crash is not something you search, rather a residence you can visit. An old man who may have once been a pilot lives there. His home, like several others, may contain clues to the investigation.
The trailer park is a bit of an illusion - the tiny house is the only liveable structure. The rest are scenery.
The Military Base
The StrangerVille Military Base (Background Scenery)
Unfortunately, this one is just scenery and not a place you can really visit. I note this here mainly for people who don't own it and to be clear it's kind of scenery to accompany the Military Career track you can join. You can select between the Officer or Covert Operator branches.
