Probably a stupid question, but will you still get the 'camera flying over neighbourhood' effect in the neighbourhood selection screen after installing the empty template?

I have been getting that effect in Pleasantview, the only one that I have worked with so far.

Has anyone else been getting weirdo errors that make no sense when using these templates? I have had squiggly thought bubbles, lost townies, lost families and errors galore in my brand new Pleasantview. I am reluctant to keep playing the hood because I am afraid I am going to get attached and then suffer a premature BFBVFS from which none can recover. But I don't want to give it up because it took days to get everyone settled in and set up with their sync timers & debuggers, etc.

I keep having problems with the Pleasants' house. Every time I play it my computer freezes up or the game crashes (losing all progress).  It's quite frustrating. I have moved them out and back in but the lot remains a constant problem. Every other house plays just fine.

Edited to add: Okay, I was wrong. I am starting to have this problem with other households as well.

I still get the 'floating cam' in all the 'hoods.


I cannot for the life of me get to "Make me a townie..." It only wants to pick other people and not anyone I've created. (Got it!) Thanks BTW: SimPE for BV is now out!!!

This link for the cleaned EAxis Neighbourhoods doesn't work for me (http://www.4shared.com/dir/2250323/a7d398b0/Temporary.html) - is anyone else having trouble? Have they been uploaded somewhere else?

I want to start playing Veronaville (for the first time in three years!) but not if it's going to erupt.

ETA: Never mind, found it on page 10!

Using Argon's clean/empty custom hood, is it suppose to create a neighborhood, N001, called Driftwood in place of "Pleasantville"?

Hi there. I end up with a N001 called Driftwood too.
As I use a french game maybe I should clean up N001 myself to keep the usual name for the neighborhood. Is there an explanation somewhere that could help me to do that ?

Thanks for any help.

All I know is that driftwood is one of the default terrains that come with the game.

The first post is a bit misleading. Argon's template is NOT an empty Pleasantview, as stated in the original post.

*THIS IS NOT PLEASANTVIEW, IT IS A TEMPLATE FOR CUSTOM NEIGHBORHOODS**

It replaces Pleasantview with empty Driftwood terrain, which is the flattest default Maxis terrain. If you want empty Pleasantview without premade Sims in it, you must use SaraMK's version instead of Argon's.

Oups sorry for that dumb question. I must admit I had a hard time reading all of this and trying to figure out what I was supposed to download/install because my english is poor. I obviously missed things.

Thanks for your answers.

I've been meaning to use the clean templates for ages, now, with a reinstall it's coming to pass. Since there were no Maxis-only templates for Seasons available, I made mine according to the tutorial, you can get them here: Riverblossom Hills, "stealth" template.

Thank you! I've been combing this thread for these. I'll be damned if it isn't a morass in here...

That is what is supposed to happen when you use the empty templates. That is also why you should always back up your files before you go mucking around with them. If you want to keep the Maxis playable Sims, you need to use the cleaned up templates instead.

Where can I get the cleaned up templates, wait I used the clean up templates, I dont get that.  Perhaps I installed wrongly then.  Huh

Which cleaned up templates do you mean?  I did make backups, so I can fix it.  But I am having a blonde moment, and totally dont understand what to do, and have asked and havent gotten a reply yet.

The cleaned up templates include only the Maxis-made playable Sims and the NPCS/Townies they know. The download link for the original three neighborhoods is here. Install them like you would an empty template but instead of leaving the Characters folder empty, replace it with the one you downloaded.

Thank you.  I downloaded it and installed it first time around, but the file must have been corrupt cause there were no characters in it, just the neighbourhood packages.

Do I still need to create townies and NPC's then?

It worked for me, but I am getting a funny error, the sims I created in CAS are not working, it keeps on asking me to Cancel, Reset or Delete.

The NPC's created are excellent, all beautifully created sims, so are the townies, I think just one fuglier than others, and for some reason, one of my townies is Bella Goth.   Grin

Okay, Argon did an empty Vacation neighborhood for Asian/Mountain/Island neighborhoods and the tourists/V neighborhood.

Has someone or would someone do cleaned/fixed ones? Someone did a cleaned for the V one only, but I've been having issues trying to make template NPCs with the Maxis ones after my amateur attempts to fix them.

I'm kind of confused about this, I've downloaded both files and installed G002 just fine, but where do I stick the G001 files? Thanks Smiley

@ tragic: You put them here: C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Seasons\TSData\Res\UserData\Neighborhoods.

Has anyone using the cleaned templates had problems with duplicate families from Pets, Seasons, and BV in the sim bin?  I can't seem to find anything on this problem.  Can I delete them or is it more trouble than it's worth?

ETA: I am dumb.  I forgot to remove my back ups from the game folders.  Oops.   Roll Eyes

If you are using the cleaned up templates, what is the total number of character files you should have in a new neighborhood? I wanna make sure I did it right.

Nevermind, I thought I had used the empty templates, but when my character folder ended up with files, so I THOUGHT I had done the cleaned templates. Nope. I was a mo and forget to delete the characters files on my Downtown and Uni, so I picked those character files up. Der. Starting over.

Also, FYI, the link to the Clean, Fixed templates for PleasantView, Veronaville, and Strangetown is borken.
