Default Better catalogue of custom neighborhoods for download
Hi there! I know there already is a catalogue of downloadable neighborhoods here , but I'd like to create another one, where you can also see a preview picture of the neighborhood and also create a wiki page for each neighborhood (like the original ones).

I'm currently working to re-arrange the Customized Sims Wiki a little and wanted to update the list of custom neighborhoods. If you'd know of more neighborhoods which I've missed, I'd be more than happy if you told me so, so I could add them.
By the way, here's the current up-to-date list :

If you have any suggestions, wishes, please let me know, so I can add these neighborhoods as well!


By the way, some neighborhoods already have a wiki page, such as Land Grant University, Mountainside Valley , Quadington University , Sedona or Widespot

Seeing those "coming soon!" hoods is making me excited. And a little worried about overpopulation.

Balloth is a shopping district meant to go with lechapeau's Beacon Falls, but can also be played without it.
http://beacon-falls.blogspot.com/20...ng-balloth.html

The full version of Beacon Falls already includes a Downtown (Lustre Point) and a University campus (Balise).

I'd like to see the neighborhood information on the new list mention whether or not the 'hood requires CC. It would also be helpful to note what EPs and SPs are required.

I'm delighted to see that you're working on this. I haven't looked at the list at the Customized Sims Wiki in awhile and there are a couple of neighborhoods that I missed and will have to try out.

I'm so glad that you did this-I even downloaded one neighborhood that I missed.

Added Balloth and some other missing neighborhoods to the list!
Speaking of adding neighborhoods to the list, I decided to include more "Coming soon!" neighborhoods, because it was fun to do so... and I have a few more hidden projects...

As for the CC/EP information, there's an extra chart now where you can see whether the neighborhood includes CC or not, and which EPs are required.

Thanks for that. My quest to rule the world is now closer to completion. :3

What about all those "The beginning of..." hoods. Love that you are doing this! I have found and tried so many hoods; hope you talk about the "themes", like many have a mystery to be solved, or complex relationships set up.

I dug through my downloads and found a couple more 'hoods you might be interested in.

Epiphany - uninhabited neighborhood by Jfade. Cute rural village - his screenshots don't do it justice. Made from Maxis templates, so it has all the Pleasantview townies and NPCs. EDIT: Also includes the bin families from Pets and Seasons.
https://sims.jfade.com/index.php-ca...&subcat=30.html


Kaczy Sad - inhabited Polish village by ??? (I had to use Google Translate to read sims' biographies, etc.). Probably made with all EPs and SPs. This 'hood that was made from Maxis templates and includes all Pleasantview townies and NPCs. EDIT: Bin families from Pets and all later EPs may have been deleted - SimPE shows them all as unlinked with no character data.

The link is to a Youtube video with overview of Kaczy Sad starting at about 1:53:15. The video is in Polish with no option for subtitles, but at least you can see what the 'hood looks like. There are links on this page to all of the neighborhoods reviewed in the video. Kaczy Sad is at the bottom of the list. All the others are already in your list.

https://youtu.be/l0KDn9lSWF8?t=6798


Another version of Old Town by Kalisa. Uninhabited. Available as a base hood, shopping district, or downtown. A couple pieces of hood deco recommended but not required. Other than that, no CC and requires all EPs and SPs.

Unrelated, but I think the cell of required EPs/SPs should be wider and have the logos queue in a horizontal row oppose to being put as column. Otherwise, you have too much excessive unused space for that tiny text and hood thumbnail.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

The icons/logos already are in a horizontal row on my computer. Maybe it depends on what resolution your monitor is set at?

I think it would be helpful if the hood NUMBER was included (as, Bitville is LSV1). Sometimes there IS a problem, like a populated hood called "Pleasantview and Strangetown blended", which is N001. Gosh, I thought I had tried all the inhabited hoods...but there is so much more!

Sorry to bump this old thread up, lol! But I've actually updated the list to include the new neighborhoods that have been released during this time. I've also included the neighborhood folder number/name, alongside its type. Have a look here!

So, if you know of any custom neighborhoods up for download, please let me know! So, that I can update the list.

Recently, I've also been thinking of adding a new categories. One of which is "decorated neighborhoods"... which would include neighborhoods that are fully decorated, but have no sims and lots. And maybe a "Maxis Remakes" category which would include the clean templates series by meetme2theriver and any other renovated/twisted/genetically corrected/genderswapped neighborhood remakes. Lol.

@Jawusa -It can also include fixed terrain templates where all decor is stripped out as I've been working on that with a few of EA's templates that keep getting messed up decor and also are being overloaded with random vegetation which always ends up having to be cleared before the town is even playable to set up.I'd have mine be stripped out and cleaned up so anybody can build,decorate and place lots as they populate the town.

@Jawusa This thread needs to be made a sticky so everyone can find it.

I did not see the ones for the Stealth Hoods by meetmetothetheriver that you posted in the groups page on the list. https://meetmetotheriver.tumblr.com...d-empty-stealth
Or am I just blind?


If someone has the knowhow to get this link out of all the junk from wayback machine it would be nice to get the real link on the list.

@Sokisims I've added Planet Alades and Wakefield to the list, thanks for the suggestions! They look amazing!

@marka93 Sadly, it doesn't work. I tried to "extract" the download link here but the file's still lost. Fortunately, a clean copy of Neubonn was shared by @joandsarah77 here

And no, I haven't added the Maxis Remake neighborhoods yet. That's still in the works.

Do you have any multi plantsim/multi PT mod installed? Because if yes, they might be required as well to play in this neighborhood.

I made Sinsan (unpopulated; all EPs and SPs; SSIN UID 2114) and New Farprork (populated; basegame only; NFAR UID 2112). Could you please add them?
Can't add them myself as the wiki seems to not allow logins unless you are staff!

I've cleaned a few of the ones you have listed, especially Kalisa's empty Old Town and Voleste's Magic Town that had sim debris in them originally. Maybe people would like to know there are clean versions. I also created subhoods of a couple that did not have them, not sure you want those, but they are all here. http://sunradersims.com/tag/hoods/

I've also cleaned the corruption from Orville, but have not uploaded it. Could if you want it.

How about a WIP category for neighborhoods that will eventually be uploaded but are currently in testing/feedback phase? Also, I really like the idea of a decorated neighborhoods page. I think clean and empty templates should be in its own category, while the genderswapped 'hoods could be in the Maxis Remakes category. Cleaning up templates and/or making them empty doesn't make them a remake in my opinion.
