Updated 04/01/2021

The Subhood Version, please could you make sure you back up the hood you wish to attach it to! Even though it is cleaned and no issues before attaching, (checked via hood checker) for some reason, once attached there is some inconsistencies with memories, so if attached, please run it through Hood Checker to fix these memories. Thank you!

Went through every Sim and made changed the default names to appear the same in all games (hopefully)

Added a new download file, a PDF listing all the playable Sims (no townies) with their "official names" incase anyone has the randomized name glitch


Welcome to Riverview City!

From Mansions to Starter homes, Riverview City is a big City with a few suburban areas to explore. Experience the nightlife deep within the City and try to understand the mysterious Locals.
Whether you are a rich Sim or a poor Sim you will find something here that suits your needs.
And if you don't, then at least you will try to attempt to gather everyone's secrets?




Lots;
Community lots - 17
Residential lots - 56
Empty Residential - 3
Residential Beach Lot - 1

Families - left to right in photos above
11 Families in total


Townies

Hello, hope you are all well?


There is some CC used in the building and decoration of the hood, though it is not essential,

To be able to see the whole map, I recommend using GunMods Camera mod to view the whole lot;
https://modthesims.info/d/97642/gun...e-versions.html

This map was run through Hood Checker numerous times, there are no issues.


Any problems let me know!

Enjoy your new hood!

If names are randomized / changed;


Update – More Fixes 04/01/2021
Subhood Make sure you run through Hood Checker once you have attached it to your hood.
Bertha Crumplebottom - She now has the ability to remarry!
Random Names - I have now set all names to be default only, so that should mean that the names are all the same in any language.
Random Sim Children having LTWs - This has been removed. Not sure how they got them.

Update – Added PDF - List of Sims 03/01/2021
- This can be found in the downloads section. Incase names are still randomized.

Update – The Fixes 30/12/2020
Ages;
- Adjusted ages for Zoe Harrison and the Moore family.
Sims;
- Renamed Antionio Bachelor to Antonio Bachelor.
- Adding missing want slots to graduated Sims.
- Added LTA milestone counts back into all Sims.
Memories;
- Malcolm Landgraab VIII snuck out with Henry Parker now, not Henry Cotton.
Relationships;
- Zoe Harrison now knows Malcolm Landgraab VII.
Lots;
- Bertha’s Diner is now not an owned lot in the empty version.
- Mr.Humble will not appear as a playable Sim on 130 Capp Avenue in the empty version, weird one that?
- A few Community lots had “The Lady in Red” painting spammed on the lot, these have been removed.
Subhood;
- I have attached a Subhood version, please back up any hood you attach this too! Make sure to run via Hood Checker once attached.

KNOWN ERRORS - Please note, that any issues that come up I will list here, before fixing. Once fixed, I will put with the other fixes above.
Bertha Crumplebottom - she is a witch, however, in some games her face is normal, but her skin has the witch green. This is a known bug with witches, sometimes can be fixed by removing the make-up and updating it again. Can not find a fix for this sadly.

As far as I can see, there will be issues, unless you have adult wants for children. If that makes sense?

Might take me a while, but I will try again with the Subhood version. Sorry if this causes you any issues!


No problem!! I talked a lot with someone yesterday that point me out i may be worrying too much, because things like that can happen to any game and the thing is it will get worse only if you are not cautious about what are the next things you do (wich i'm... very cautious). I'll resume playing for now, i did not even finished my first rotation with everyone! But if i found something else i'll make sure to report here. Thank you very much for your attention!! <3

Oh brilliant, yeah from what I see its really not a massive issue, DV had children with LTW also, but still not ideal. Thank you though for bringing it to my attention.

I have updated the main files, with some other fixes, this shouldn't happen now in the main primary hood version. Will do another Subhood version now. (second times the charm, right?)

If you like Sims stuff, I have some videos on YouTube?

Hello,

So I have added another Subhood Version, before attaching it to your main hood, make sure you back up your primary hood first!

This is because when the map is run through Hood Checker before adding onto your hood, there are no issues. However, once attached to a new primary hood, there are conflicted memories that come up in Hood Checker. which will save fixed when run yourself.

So it required that you also run it through hood checker, so avoid any issues.
Testers wanted please!

I've been setting my Riverview City up for a challenge game and downloaded the pdf of the residents in case I wanted to do recreations of them in CAS with my own versions or make ancestors as my version is set in 1520 as an early colonizing attempt in the new world.

Tried the new version and the names have been fixed, thank you!

I attached the subhood to a test neighborhood and I think I have an idea what's the problem here. When you attack a subhood with sims, they will get different SimIDs than before, because some of their IDs will be already taken by sims from the main hood. So a memory that refers to Sim A in the main hood version will now refer to a different sim, and that's where all those HoodChecker errors come from.

You should probably ask in the create forums for help with this. It can be fixed, because there are subhood versions of other neighborhoods for download.

Incredible download! Tho i have a question; are the pre-made sims supposed to have a bio? Bc if so, in my game their bios are empty and I dunno what I did wrong. It is mentioned that there are two parts in the V3 download but i only see 1 file.

Otherwise, amazing hood!

Default Moved tombstones
I downloaded Riverview Main Hood V3 and run HoodChecker, this is what showed up:


Here I have chosen Riverview City Cemetery.


As far as I know, you created more than one necropolis and each of them is kept in different style. This is the reason why I felt upset realising that all of tombstones will be moved to just one lot. Are you able to fix this problem in future updates?
I also don't understand what's the thing with Hobbies hood the programm is talking about?

EDIT: Oh, I found another bug. Pesky Kat has "Run Away" icon and memory, but in fact she is on the lot and doesn't seem to be going to run anywhere.
EDIT2: I can't see tombstones on The Riverview City Cemetery lot, despite the fact HoodChecker was supposed to move them there. I restored hood and didn't run HoodChecker this time, just to see if that'll make any difference. Tombstones are still absent.
EDIT3: Attached clean hoods of Pleasantview and Strangetown, then found the infamous sign of corruption. Screenshot below:

As far as I am aware the only way to fix this is to run through hood checker and it will do the re-allocation automatically!

Interesting, the only thing I can think of do you have the required CC that is listed? Failing that, the computer might not be able to handle the lot itself? Sorry you are having issues!

I was not aware that they are all the same face template as I used random generators and then the genetics played a part.

The main was was created first, then the subhood, the stories do not copy other when you change the hood from main to subhood, was just an over sight for me not adding them back into the subhood versions!

No Sims have bios, also MTS allowed larger files to be uploaded, so by the time V3 came out, it only needed to be one file, the earlier versions you needed to! I just did not edit the main post, sorry! Fixed now!

The Legacy cemetrey was empty (Intended for the player to fill up with legacy family graves if they wanted).

Not sure why it thinks there should be dead sims in the hobbies hood! (Basically thats just the secret hobby lots in one map) as this is built and created without them being attached (so that your game can generator the secret lots and would be able to turn it into a subhood etc) without replacing and overwriting stuff!

The hoodchecker is so that it when attaching the Sims to exisitng hoods, it can re-organise the sims so they do not overlap. Ie; two sims with the character file 0x00001 etc.

Oh interesting! Pesky should be off lot and will return shortly - though, maybe with the attachment of the subhood it has somehow caused it to "bug", so a simple for rest with testingcheats on pesky should clear that icon.

Now this is rather strange, I have also loaded a new fresh copy in my game (downloaded again from MTS and put in my game) and the graves do show up in the full version, but not the subhood.

I then delete the subhood, and re attach in another hood, what I did next was close the game before entering the graveyard (so it has not been loaded yet) and I run hood checker. Once ran through and fixed via hoodchecker they appear, I then went into the graveyard and they appear there.
