Okay, Where are my BV Neighborhoods?
« on: 2008 May 31, 13:29:26 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I went to add the destinations that came with Bon Voyage (Twikkii Island, Three Lakes, Taki-something Village) and I didn't see them. Instead it said that I already had added them. So, I exit out and went to see if I actually did have them because I do not remember me adding them. They still are not there. I did this same process again and I still couldn't find them.
I have to admit, I did download some empty templates but I thought they only got rid of the townies showing up in your neighborhood's Sim bin. I have the same things for Nightlife and Open For Buisness. I can still add Downtown and Blue Water Village.
Another issue is that my Pleasant View is gone as well. When I had to re-install my game, Strangetown and Veronaville showed (Which I too had downloaded empty templates for), and Pleasant View was gone. Every time I reinstall I play a "Vanilla" game. Can someone please help me. I must admit, its not really important because I seldom take my Sims on vacations and I like playing my own neighborhoods. But, my Sim found all these maps(figures it happens as soon as something goes wrong with the actual neighborhoods they pertain to) and I want to see Big Foot, dammit Angry!

You could always make secret lots in your custom neighbourhoods:

I'm pretty sure losing neighbourhoods, etc. is not a result of your clean templates. Sounds like a bad reinstall. All I can suggest is to uninstall/reinstall base and BV, but someone more knowledgeable than I might have a better idea.

 Wow, that was quick. I guess I was used to recieving slow answers unless I type the word "BENES!" in the subject line Roll Eyes...
 I thought you couldn't make your own secret lots. Thanks for the tutorial!
 I suspected it is a bad reinstall because I just recently had to reinstall my games. (Sigh) Another reinstall does not sound good to me.

If you didn't do it yet try going into EA Games/The Sims 2/Neighborhoods/ and deleting NeighborhoodManager.package. The game should regenerate that on next run.

*Kazzandra smacks self in face!*

I should have thought of that! Yes, it would also explain why uninstall/reinstall isn't working because the problem lies with your user files, which you are backing up, not the core files itself.

Bumping to say I have the same problem, and deleting the mentioned package doesn't work. Any other ideas, or is it down to cleaned up (holiday) templates?

I found the problem - it's K&B! I tried an install less that SP and no problems with the holiday hoods at all.
