Here comes the revised version of Springville.
Autumn Falls is based on the same map but with more space for lots. Some streets and the downtown were changed too. All rabbitholes are included and there placement was also changed a bit.

You only need the basegame to play this hood.

  • 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

Total Number: 68

Rabbitholes (all, 16):
Jail: 30x41
Military: 47x49
Cemetery: 63x32
Stadion: 33x50
Science and Hospital: 64x64
City Hall: 48x64
Corporate Towers: 36x32
School: 64x32
Restaurant: 18x16
Theater, Bookstore, Grocery: 64x32
Police, Wellness, small restaurant: 60x29

Community (15 - empty lots):
18x16, 30x40, 25x30, 40x40, 41x64, 40x40, 34x52, 36x38, 40x40, 20x12, 20x55, 30x40, 20x30, 30x20
Beach: 64x28

Residential (37 - empty lots):
20x20: 6, 30x30: 8, 20x30: 15, 25x20: 2, 37x60, 41x30, 25x25, 30x20, 40x30, 23x30

I hope you like it!

This is a multi-part download:

Copy the two files in one folder. Start unpacking the first. When the program asks for the second one, select it manually.
Or you rename the second file so that it is named like the first and only the number at the end remains 2.

Please don't post problems with the .rar files in this thread. Look at the help section instead.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

@Sims addict 17: You need to update your game to the latest patch, then uninstall Springville and install Autumn Falls.

You never know what’s comin’ for ya.

I love this neighborhood but there's one major bug and one major annoyance. On several lots, mostly the ones by the beach, sims can't navigate off it. They're essencially stuck on the lot, even if it's completely empty. The annoyance is that EVERY SINGLE LOT has a +100 vista bonus. I could understand on on coastal lots, but it's just ridiculous to have on every lot.

A message should pop up when you extract 'MTS_himawara106_1053913_AutumnFalls.part1' and press the 'browse' button then click 'MTS_himawara106_1053913_AutumnFalls.part2' and then press 'ok'.

Special Instructions on Unpacking
I found the solution to unpack this with winrar. Every time you attempt to extract both of the .rar files, WinRAR looks for "MTS_himawara106_1053911_AutumnFalls.part1" and "MTS_himawara106_1053911_AutumnFalls.part2"; however, the second rar uploaded is named "MTS_himawara106_1053913_AutumnFalls.part2".

As you can see, the second .rar has a typo and 1053913 should be 1053911. Rename the second rar to match the first and it will work. I suspect this may resolve other issues with corruption as well.

It's an honest mistake of course, other than that I look forward to playing this.
