Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I've been working on this neighborhood for some time. It was for personal use and I had used a lot of CC. When I decided to share it, I had to remove all my lots so you don't need to download tons of buy/build CC. Yet, I kept CC for neighborhood decoration.


You can choose what kind of 'hood you want to download, either the version with CC (Neighborhood decoration only) or not.
In case you choose the version with CC, you must download the next CC for the map to be displayed correctly.




The neighborhood is divided into six zones:
  • Residential: It is a suburb . It contains spaces where you can put lots of 3x3 next to each other.
  • Urban: It is a downtown. Most community lots will be placed here.
  • Countryside: It is a rural place. Mainly designed for farm activities.
  • Shore: It is a coast. There is room to place beach lots.
  • Mountain: It is mostly a cliff. Perfect for cabins and camping sites.
  • Industrial: It is an industrialized place. It can be filled by abandoned and neglected lots.

These zones do not have any lot at all.


In order to be able to view this map in its entirety, you need to have a neighborhood camera mod which makes it possible to pan the camera all the way to the world's edge. I use GunMod's Camera Mod. Without it you won't see the whole 'hood.


I challenge anyone can fill this neighborhood with nice residential/community lots, and share it into MTS.
If you do it, please send me a PM before you upload it.

@Titi022002 I will be waiting for that download
@Snufflepaws In fact, as this neighborhood was for personal use, I built it little by little, thinking in details.

This is really inspirational, and I can see the time invested into the project, and the layout is definitely breath taking. Sorely tempted to download this, and thinking of using it for a challenge that is run here. Just need to find the TIME for it and all my other stories running around in my head/on paper!!!

Thank you for sharing this creation of yours with the rest of us.

I have to check this one out. Been wanting to start playing an actual city for a while. I love how diverse the zones are, yet how perfectly they blend together onto a single map. Awesome work. :)

also, brilliant choice of wording for the camera mod paragraph :P

Thank you all!

DJ, I am not a native English speaker so I had to look for some help.

ageust, I tried it and it worked for me, in fact, I made that shore for that use so I don't know what is going on. What version are you using? SC4, no CC or CC?

This is the best neighborhood ever! It's big, it has a beach, mountains and even cliffs! On the flat ground you can easily decorate the map without floating objects. The only thing I don't like that much (but I don't think it has something to do with the hood) is that you can't zoom in main city area.

I've startet playing Sims 2 ~10 years ago and this is really the best neighborhood I've seen!

Very well done ITrustInChrist! I love how you shared this download. At first, I thought it was a Sims 3 neighborhood. The terrain looks marvelous and is quite impressive. I can definitely see building a whole community of lots for this terrain. Thank you for sharing this with the Community.

Hey, I wanted to have some diversity in neighborhoods to play so this definitely helps!
I was wondering too if you could turn this into an attachable downtown?
