Since I haven't officially said it here yet, here I go:

What a MAGNIFICENT world you all have made!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU  :D :D :D

Union Cove is beautiful in many ways! It is not over the top, but well balanced indeed in a way EA never could I think, or never has done anyway. The lots are beautiful, so creative and the lay-out is well thought out. I can name every little detail, but it is just really the world I have been searching and searching for (seriously, you don't know how many worlds I have tried ::)) and I am so happy to have come across it when I was on this great website.
I am actually not exaggerating, seriously, I am very honest. I am a somewhat picky person and this world truly has all I wished for and much more!!!
Thank you for all your hard work! It is beautiful and I am really enjoying myself.

(I actually feel I haven't said it clearly enough yet ;D)
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

Is there an adventurer Sim in Union Cove?
If so, can someone tell me who that is? I would love to play with that Sim :)

Thank you everyone, it is most rewarding to hear such a great feedback on our project we worked hard and lovingly for such a long time  ;D

Yes there is, it is my Simself Adventurer/Collecting Queen - Angela Buznik, living on a Mod Hill. She does have a lovely toddler and a cat there too.  ;D She is one great adventurer and my favorite Sim ever (her picture is the first one in my signature)!

Has anyone had trouble with taking a writing class at the business building in UC? I got an email about this and was curious if anyone else had the issue.

Thank you Anushka for your wonderful simself! I really enjoyed playing with her last night. It actually very nice that she is not alone, but has a toddler and a cat to come home too, and not to forget a great bird! The house is beautiful and the garden is stunning. You can't see that very well if you're overlooking the town. Zooming in shows all great details. I love gardens like this with rocky ground and green trees and bushes with beautiful coloured flowers, stunning! Thank you!

I can check this for you in my game soon. I'll get back on this.

Edit: I have tested this with 3 different Sims from 3 different house holds and everything went as normal. They all had no writing skill before the writing class by the way. Don't know if that matters. Any particular sim or writing level that needs to be checked?

Another edit: tested it with your Simself since he already has level 5 writing and the class went just fine. After the class he gained about 1/4th of his 6th skill point , but I am guessing that makes sense since it is harder to gain skill points as you progress. I actually never let my sims take lessons, but just let them write. Hope this helped!

Thank you Odie! I'm so happy to hear you liked her, and the lot - I had so much fun making it and playing it! This is the short story of her before Union Cove, and it is meant to be continued ;)

Hi Anushka,
I have seen a part of her story and it looks very nice! I am not going to read any further though, since I want to do some adventuring and tomb exploring on my own. I think your story of her might spoil some things ;)
Maybe later! :)

If I'm only missing two Stuff packs, will I still need the save file? Or is this for EP's only? I have the last five EP's up to Showtime, and I'm missing Outdoor Living and Fast Lane.

I play the normal file without TLS, no errors caused by it that I know of.

Yeah, for that reason we didn't use any TLS rabbitholes. You can play the regular file without SP's without any problems.

So this is still only up to Pets, other than that? I do not own Showtime just yet. I noticed this file is only 121 MB. Did it change since V2 or was V2 always 121?

Only up to Pets for now, and V2 was 121mb it should run smoother than V1 specially on weaker computers.

Sorry for the spoilers, I'll add it in the title. I guessed that majority already played the WA locations and didn't consider it as a spoiler, so than you for letting me know!

Okay, still having problems with V2. I don't have the save file, (didn't use it, thinking that was the main problem), and I have ErrorTrap MC, OverWatch, and SP-All Nraas. Turned my graphics down, and if I were to even just go meet Pam at the food Cafe, leaving the house, with P-Man, it crashes. Not where I have to manually shut down, but to the desktop.

Is SP, and logging in causing the problems?

EDIT: Where's the thread related to UC Tech issues?

May I suggest that you try UC first without mods? Then at least you know if it works or that the mods may cause an issue.

The thread for UC Technical Issues is www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,8517.0.html
(don't know how to put this just under the word "here" or something, sorry - if someone likes to explain?)

I'll test it out right now, see what the deal is. Then I'll report back. I really love my mods though.

I'm sad to say that I was very excited to check your lovely world out but after two attempts to load the world, I crashed to desktop while selecting a household.  (Once while selecting a household, once while trying to move a family into a home).  I'll check out this thread ( http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,8363.msg169709.html#msg169709 ) which was linked on the download page for possibly being able to help with stability.  It did look really pretty in Town mode, though!   :)

Hi Kate!  I'm currently updating some of the buildings in UC.  May I have your permission to use some of your art work in them?  Full credit to be given to you of course.

Yes, folks, UC IS being updated to accommodate Show Time.  At the moment only two already existing buildings have had things added, The Grange now has karaoke and a bull rider and juke boxes and Ratcliff Hall Country Club has a putting green, pool tables and domino tables.  Today I'll work on Kon-Fusion and possibly Pier Fun O Won which will become a large venue with an outdoor stage.  Since it is a "hangout", a new hangout will be built.  I'm thinking along the lines of a "Soda Shoppe" using those cool fruits and sweets.  The rest of the team is working on updating their buildings and making the other venue types so hopefully we'll have it soon.


Here's a sneak preview of what has been done so far.

Outdoor karaoke stage at The Grange.



Bull ride at The Grange.



New restroom, billiards room and small juice and coffee bar at the country club.



Putting greens.



When some Sim can't attend a class, the first thing to check is the time of day.  Classes are closed late at night.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

It's looking good! But, with the Grange, you'll need to change the lot type (if you haven't already) to Live Show Venue or something.
