Quick hackjob. Might work, might not. Same thing for other clean templates. Delete everything in your characters folder (I didn't include the traveller family for this one).

Don't blame me if your game becomes a BFBVFS.


EDIT:
So far so good. No extra townies were created when this neighbourhood was attatched. Time to see if it adds them when going on vacation.

EDIT Mk. 2:
The game WILL generate the tourists when you go on a vacation. They will have random hair, skintones, names, clothes...  and 12 families. Each have 4 sims in it.
The game adds 48 sims to your game. It can't be prevented with notownieregen. They must use a special rule.

Also, each family will consist of:
1 elder, 1 adult, 1 teen, 1 child.

So, this thus far has not made my game a BFBVFS.

And one other thing...

You WILL get INSANE lag when you go onto a vacation lot the first time while the game makes 48 sims.

Here are the three vacation destinations. Same deal with these.
Delete all the characters in A001, M001, T001.

Did not test these for 'working'.

The locals might have different ways of working, so someone else can test these.

The two uploads I've made today are considered in-testing. And I'm not responsible if your game explodes into a BFBVFS.

And I'm not 100% sure I cleaned them the proper way.

Thank you.

I will give this a test tonight. I only intend on using this on the stealth hood, as i can deal with the locals the game throws me. I just wanted to get rid of all the vacationers and make my own, but it doesn't seem possible right now.

One good thing I have noticed face templates work on the vacationers. Well it seems to be working as my tourists are good looking now.

Right now, I don't know if you can make your own vacationers. Perhaps you can, but I'd still prefer to wait until notownieregen (or perhaps it'll make something new like notouristregen, since I do believe they use a differnet code) is updated for BV so that tourists aren't randomly made. But it seems like a one time thing.

This way I could make families that actually look similar, and have the same last name.

I tried this with CAS-sims who were transformed into townies previously. I made them into vacation sims using the NPC and townie gun, but they didn't know their proper dances and greetings. They were in the vacation locals pool, though, because my sims on vacation were able to invite them to a party in their vacation home. Maybe someone will come up with an updated version of Inge's teleporter shrub with a new (working) option "Make into vacation sims"? Cheesy

Ahh, that's the reason why. When a vacation local is created by the game, they get the proper dances, greetings for that particular region. However, if you generate a townie into a vacation sim, they are put into the tourist pool. The tourist pool is unique from the vacation locals pool. In fact, the locals pool has one thing the others do not. If you invite them over in your regular neighbourhood, you can invite them for a few days (and they WILL stay for a few days)

I'm a little lost between tourists, locals, vacations sims etc... Are you trying to say only locals (islanders, mountainers and asian people) can be invited over for 3 days ??
I'm asking because in my game (and without any mod at the time) locals and tourists could be invited for 3 days. In fact it was the only option, apart of talking to them on the phone. (by the way I was disappointed that this new and shiny option was not available for family and friends... maybe some modder could correct that ??)
Maybe I don't understand what you are saying...

Are you sure? When I click on "Make into vacation sim" there are four options - "Asia", "Mountains", "Tropics" and "Tourist", if I remember correctly. I'm sure I clicked on "Asia" (that's were my test-family was staying), and that ex-townie still didn't know the Asian bow ... Huh

Hmm... I'm totally non-awesome, but what tool are you using to do this? You mentioned the "NPC and townie gun" earlier... I'm not familiar with that particular tool? Is it a debug option or a downloadable thing?

*LOL* That "NPC and townie gun" is the object that used to be the "NPC and townie tree". It's a debug object you can spawn when you enter the cheat "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true", then Shift-click on your sim and say "Spawn" >> "NPC and townie creator". In former EPs a tree appeared next to your sim, now it's a clone of the repoman's gun. You can create new NPCs and townies by clicking on that object, and there's one option "Make into vacation sim" which doesn't seem to work properly, though. Not that I had expected any different from EAxis ... Cool

Ok, did I understand this correctly? The V001_Neighborhood.zip will give us the locals and hotel NPC's etc but no fugly tourists? The Vacation_Clean.zip will remove all BV NPC's, including locals and tourists? Just wanna make sure before I go installing anything.

The neighbourhood removes: the townies, Hotel NPCs, and those other sorts. The locals were completely in the Vacation_Clean

I'm not 100% certain however, but I know with the V001_neighbourhood, the game generated new hotel NPCs only once (for antiredundancy), as well as only one tour guide. They're not contained in the actual vacation hood, but they're inside the regular 'stealth' hood.

Isn't it odd?

Anyways, I didn't exactly try the NPC and townie maker. My test was solely to make the neighbourhood clean.

Right now, I can't do a 'clean with playables' only, since some of the options that aren't in other clean neighbourhoods (added with BV, i guess) aren't documented in the QA yet, so I don't know what the heck it is.

Could a kind and gracious or perhaps grumpy but willing, awesome person who has the Cleanedup/Fixed Maxis only Basehoods files please email me or post a link to the files? The link is the first post is empty.

Me too, please! I'd be forever grateful if someone could post them.

Sysa,
Thanks for posting these. My C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Seasons\TSData\Res\NeighborhoodTemplate folder only has a G002 file in it. Will it still function properly if I add the G001 folder you have created? Where did you find it??

The G001 folder goes to the C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Seasons\TSData\Res\UserData\Neighborhoods folder, with the usual instructions (delete neighborhood.package and Characters folder, copy contents of rar into their place).

On another note, I've uploaded the Maxis-only original hoods here (and I have the others as well, if anyone needs them).

You can still use Winrar after the trial period. It will nag about registering, but it still works.

I just noticed that J.M. Pescado updated his notownieregen hack for no more spawning of excessive vacation sims - does your version do the same thing?

If someone more awesome than me makes a better clean neighbourhood for the BV lots, I'll recommend you use those too. I'll also remove the ones I put on MTS2 (they're the same version!)
However, I did make one with the traveller family inside of the game.
MTS2 has that one
