This is my first neighbourhood upload for the sims 3 - so please be kind.

You find in Springville all rabbit holes, many community and residential lots. It is a small neighbourhood and I playtested it and it runs very smoothly.

All collectibles and fish species can be found in the neighbourhood. There are many fishing spots, beach spots, a waterfall and other things to explore.

You can change ingame residential to community lots and vice versa.

I hope you like it - please leave a "thanks" if you like it or comments for suggestions etc.

  • Map Size: Small
  • Spawn Points: all from the basegame

  • Routing Info: Sims can go everywhere except into the water or on the top of the mountains.
  • Layering: Two layers: one for the lots and one for the game objects and spawning objects
  • Textures: I have used 6 textures

This is a multi-part download:

Unpacking: When I upload here, the system gives the files two unequal names and so you can't extract it at once. You have to extract the first and when it asks for the second you have to choose it (it should be in the same folder).

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
