Round 3: Years 604 – 605

It is currently April 605 in Simdale Valley!

Note:  I am re-publishing this round schedule since Simdale Valley is starting up again, after a year hiatus.  (*so excited!)  After working for nearly a month to bring Simdale Valley to life in Sims 4, I determined that my imagination just doesn’t stretch that far.  My sims 2 sims were products of a different game engine, one with  rich personality, chemistry, life stages, and aspiration systems (not to mention all my custom ‘hoods and lots!) that I just can’t translate adequately, at least right now, into Sims 4.

Surprisingly, when I reinstalled my Sims 2 game and save file, along with all the supporting programs and modifications, it runs!  When I made the decision to try Sims 2 again instead of continuing to make Simdale Valley in Sims 4, I figured it would take me weeks to get the game running and lots and sims restored, but it took one evening!  My sims are right where I left them a year ago.  Thank you so much to CelebKiriedhel at Leefish for the fixes that allow the Sims 2 to run with my Nvidia graphics card and Windows 10.

If you are a Tesla Family fan, they will also return with new updates, soon.  I plan to work out some kind of alternating posts between Simdale Valley (Sims 2 for now)  and Take Me to the Moon (The Sims 4, Tesla Family story).

    Looks great! Keeping track of everything in one spot is really helpful at the end of the round when you do a summary too. Looking forward to this round, it's a fresh start full of fun ahead!

    So excited to see all these sims again! I didn’t realise you’d switched to Windows 10. I just ordered a new PC and it’ll have Windows 7 but eventually, I’m sure I’ll have to upgrade. It’s nice to know that TS2 can work on it!

  3. It’s working pretty well. You know, I made a mistake though. I was thinking the empty templates would be in my save file, but of course, it’s in the game programming folders. So now I’ve got the whole Pleasantview crew mobbing Simdale Valley. Arggh! Do you think if I overwrite the correct folders with empty templates, and then copy back the game file from last year, it will fix it? It seems like that would do it. I can’t believe I did that!
