Have you ever wondered why the scripted event for the Capp household seems to be broken and does not work like the Prima Guide says it does? Well it turns out that there is actually an issue with the scripted event. Pentawa discovered that the lot the Capps live on has a token attracted to it which tells the game to not activate the Capp's scripted event. (I am guessing this token was used for testing purposes and Maxis just forgot to delete the token)

Pentawa also explained how to delete the token; so I just loaded meetmetotheriver's clean Veronaville in SimPE and deleted the token. So know the Capp's scripted event actually works and can finally be experienced the way Maxis intended.

Townies and NPCs version
I also made a second version which also adds the Maxis Townies and NPCs. Even though Sunrader Sims already made a version with townies and NPCs I added them back in myself.

Shopping District version
I did not bother to create a shopping district version of this hood because the scripted events don't work when it's a subhood and Sunrader Sims has already created a shopping district version that includes the Maxis townies and NPCs.

To install you simply delete the N003 folder in your Neighborhoods folder and drag in this one.
(DO NOT DRAG IN THIS N003 FOLDER AND CLICK REPLACE CONTENTS BECAUSE THAT WILL CORRUPT THE HOOD!)

"Townies and NPCs version
I also made a second version which also adds the Maxis Townies and NPCs. I was not able to use Sunrader Sims version because for some reason the fix does not work on their version; so I had to add in the Maxis townies and NPCs myself."

@zachjohnunlimited, why do you think this is? I thought it might be because because the IDNO is changed on my version to avoid confusion with MeetMe's and the original, but the UID is already 3, so should work. (In case anyone is not aware, scripted events must have the original UIDs to work. The UID must be 1 for PV scripts to work, for Strangetown 2, and for Veronaville 3. In a Neighborhoods folder, only one hood of each type can have working scripts. Here is a thread where we discussed this idea. https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=5764642 )

When I made my version of Verona, the scripts were not an issue, since they did not work anyway, but with this discovery of the lot token, perhaps it can now be fixed. Did you write up how you changed it anywhere so I can take a look?

Well now I am just confused because I just did the fix on your version and it worked even though I tried it before and it didn't work.

If you want to know how to delete the token then Pentawa made a post explaining how to do it so here is the link to the post.

I guess something got broken with the scripted events in general because now it works even though it didn't a few days ago.
I can share your version with the fix. (If you want me to)

Sorry I did not get a notice on this earlier, but since you added the townies in yours, I don't think there is any reason to share a second one, do you? I will just publicize the fix for people who already downloaded mine. Thank you for sharing the info!

Yeah, you're right in how it would be pointless to share a 2nd one.
