4th Beta Coming Soon...


Click for Larger Image

Manu and I are hoping to release to you all very soon, a new beta with better builds, better decos, and better performance overall (including a fixed Brooklyn bridge). There are no new EP requirements so World Adventures, Ambitions, and Late Night are still all that is required. You must also be patched up to at least 1.29

 
 The new beta will also make use of Ani's Shop Mod and her Clothing Store Mod. The world cannot and does not include either mod so if you don't want to use them, you'll simply have a lot of regularly functioning WA registers around town : ). I've simply prepped a bunch of shops for use with her mods. This way New York City will be as interactive as it should be despite EA not providing us with proper shops.

  1. Hmm. Nice work!
    I can help you with building. I have some NY skyscrapers (Met Life, etc.) and tenments. Also I have a Statue of Liberty.
    It will be great if you place these lots in your NY.

  2. The Met Life building and Statue of Liberty are in the world :)

    Thanks but much of the other building is already completed. Only a few builds remain, sorry.

  3. As I can see on screens many of your buildings and houses are meshes or "rabbit holes". I can make these buildings playable. E.g. I can build some 40 floor skyscrapers and other buildings.
    It will be more realistic. :)

  4. The reason there are so many deco buildings is to prevent unbearable lag for people with average computers. Smooth performance on this game is a careful balancing act :)

    I do have 3 lots left in Manhattan, all of which need to be 'Constrain Floor Elevation' skyscrapers. If you can do this, it would be much appreciated and would allow me to work on other areas. Please click on my name in the 'Contributors' section (I'm Daniel) and send me an email (send it to my Yahoo one if you can) so we can continue this conversation. And Thanks for the offered help

  6. Hi. I'm from Brazil and my english it's not so good.
    I downloaded the city and I put it on my "Downloads" folder, and then I install the city on the game. The installation is ok, the problem is when I start the game, didn't appear the city. It's like I haven't been installed.
    Please help me, your city is PERFECT and I wanted so much to play in NY.

    Did you have a previous version of this world installed? If so, please uninstall all versions of New York and clear your caches (google 'Delphy's Dashboard') and it'll do it for you :)

    If you have never had any version of NY before, please try it on a fresh EA folder (where all your saves and mods are kept). To do this, simply remove your current EA folder from the Documents section of your computer, and launch your game. This will generate a new EA folder that you can try to install NY in. If this solution works for you, there is a conflict (conflicting custom content) in your original EA folder.
    Hope this works out for you. BTW, your english is pretty fluent.

  12. Will this 4th beta have people in it ?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Um...it can. I'm not going to set all the careers and celeb levels yet but if you just want a save file for it to be populated I can do that.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hey. Is the 4th Beta likely to be the last one before the finish one. Thanks :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah i really want a save file to start plying in the city.Thanks a lot man.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's tough to say. That was certainly the original plan but we'll see how it goes. At this point I feel like I'll release a version that can be considered the Final eventually (it will have all the little details like traffic lights and food trucks, and the spawners and all that), but I think after that I'll still continue working on it.

    I remember someone likening these world building projects to a model train set, you just keep going and going...

  17. Hey,Daniel have you uploaded the save file yet ?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I didn't know you wanted one for this version

    Here is a version for my personal use (I make a save at the beginning where I populate it, and then do 'save as' thereafter).I don't know if you'll like it

  19. Believe me i will love it thank you very much ,respect for your work.Oh yeah and one more thing I've tried to open the world with CAW and I got an error "Cannot Load Packed File {0}" I will try to export the files with s3pe and if that doesn't work you have any ideas,I want to place the bulidings that come with Pets.

    I have no idea how to open worlds like that. What lot sizes are needed (I don't have pets)? I would suggest placing the horse rabbithole in the Hamptons, where the school currently is, but I really have no idea what the other lots are. If you let me know, I can try to accommodate those with the EP...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I cant find out what the lots are because I've updated my sims to 1.29 and now when I try to load any world I get the error "SIMS 3 HAS STOPPED WORKING".:|

  22. @Daniel send me a list with names of new york, and i translate this to dutch, for a dutch version of New york :)

  23. I Love your world.
    I see how you said that you will continue even after you publish it. You really do love it.

  24. Hello, Awesome World!!! So I downloaded the Beta version 3. My computer specs are Dell duo core pentium processor with 3.0 ghz cpu, with 4 gigs of ram, and a ATI Raedon 4200 hd integrated card on a desk top computer. My graphic isn't the best I know, however I can run Los Aniegos with little to know lag at all. Here's what I got for you, I played in New York for about 4 hours, one sims week,(It's beautiful btw, great job) and I moved my sim into a little apartment in Harlem. This played okay no route fail tantrums. I then used MC to add money to her and moved her to a apartment in Manhattan..This is where the problem came in, I clicked the move option and it allowed me to pick a apartment to move too, but as I was waiting for her to move it took almost 25 minutes for me to be able to click the "okay" button. After that I got to the apartment, and decided to check out the library, that was okay, to be honest I only had her use the computer there. The cabs are coming like there supposed too, but it's a lot of lag. And the world isn't filled yet, I installed Overwatch, Errortrap (which reported 30 errors, if you like I can post those script errors for you), but I didn't install Twallan's Sp because I like to see how a world will run without it since sometimes it can cause lag too. Now it may be because I started a new world, and the processors in the background are making sims and moving them in etc...But since this is a beta world I thought I would let you know what I got..However I'm going to keep playing for a little while longer, because it's freaking awesome... Oh and I'm assuming this world is flagged as a City World, but I do have pets, and some strays were showing up, which to my understanding isn't supposed to happen in World's flagged as cities. (I'm not 100% sure about that, I just zapped them out anyway using MC) Perfect Sex and the City World here!!! Can't wait for the final version. I hope I put this in the right spot, I apologize in advance if not!!

  25. I've never experienced that kind of wait time and 30 script errors?! I suppose you should send those to me, yes (though I'm not sure what I'll be able to make of them. I'm sorry the world is laggy for you, had you considered turning down your settings a bit? lowering the number of nearby high-rendered lots, for example? I can't speak to the Pets stuff as I don't have that EP.

    Also, sometimes sims get stuck on the Brooklyn Bridge (LN long bridge) so watch out for that. I also have a post on how to find stuck sims quickly (it's titled 'Find Routing Issues Quickly and Easily') using Twallan's Overwatch
