Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ok this is my try at making the Old Town from Sims 1 game for Sims 2.
This is an accurate recreation of the Sims 1 Old Town as the Sims 2 base game will allow.

Quote from the Wiki.
Quote:
Old Town was introduced in The Sims: Unleashed and is an extension of the original neighborhood screen. The original area now takes the top-right quarter area while Old Town is in the bottom-left. Old Town appears in all neighborhoods, and is the same in all neighborhoods. There are many new lots, and there are now shops, pet stores and gardening centers scattered around SimCity.
The town's founder Gunther Goth formed the town while seeking a better life for his wife Cornelia and son Mortimer. The area left of the river is mostly populated by residential lots. The smaller area to the right of the river seems to be the wealthier part of town, despite the Hicks' trailer, and contains the home of Gunther and Cornelia Goth.
The town is very similar to New Orleans, rich with the jazz music, period architecture, and voodoo shops. Old Town is presumed to be the left-hand area of Pleasantview, where Sims such as Cornelia Goth and Mama Hick live.


I have used the AGS program making a clean and empty environment with no Maxis content to make and were possible I use extracted and clones Pleasantview Sims for this. IE Gunther Goth and all other Sims from Pleasantview who were in the Old Town hood from Sims 1.
I have included all the Goth's, Crumplebottom 's and Bachelor's as ghost in the Goth lot, I have made Michael Bachelor as Bella Goth brother from clones of both.
Dead Sims in Mortimer Goth's lot.
(Victor, Gretle and Frida Goth, Simon, Prudence and Agnes Crumplebottom, Simis and Jocasta Bachelor and all have died by a different means. All family ties are intact.)

I have included all the downloadable family from the original EA/Maxis Sims 1web site. Hatfield, Jones, Agent, Valentino, Maximus and Snooty Patooty families.
Plus all other palyable families that came with the Sims 1 plus EP's.
Some of the downloadable houses that were on the EA/Maxis Sims 1 web site had extra downloads that I did not get so to that end I made all houses as they are in my Sims 1 game only using what the Sims 2 base game will allow.

This only needs the base game to play.
No camera mod needed to play as it is.

To extract:
1. Download the rar file for which one you want. Old Town with Sims.rar With Sims or Old Town No Sims.rar Without Sims.
2.Double click on Old Town with Sims.rar or Old Town No Sims.rar

How to install this hood.
With Sims. (SIM1)
Put the SIM1 folder into your Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods folder.
Without Sims.(SIM2)
Put the SIM2 folder into your Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods folder.

I have made this hood into a Shopping District and you can get it here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=523417

I just found this site that has all the walls and maybe the floors from Sims 1 converted for Sims 2 and you will now be able to match the walls and floors in this hood if you want to. http://www.simthing.net/sims2/s2sims1/s2sims1wall02.htm

Default Agent House Hold Or The White House
All I can say is this may have been downloaded from EA/Maxis Sims 1 Web Site.

Quote from SimEchoes.
Quote:
This house was given to fans by Maxis but is no longer available from their website so I have archived it here.

And can still be downloaded for the Sims 1 game. http://simechoes.org/simechoes1/maxis/homes/homes.html

Default Hick Family
Quote from the Wiki.
Quote:
Mama was once the rich and famous Miss SimCity, but then she lost her savings to her Psychic Phone Friend. Now only a few Sims remember who she was in the past. It's possible that she was once married, since she has a son, but what happened to his father is not mentioned. She has dark red hair, wears a blue nightgown with palm-like patterns, a few rollers, heavy makeup, a blue cap and a pair of pink slippers. Mama is in the Culinary Career track. She is assumed to be middle-aged. Presumably, she would be an elder (or deceased) in The Sims 2, and a teen or young adult in The Sims 3.

Quote from the Wiki.
Quote:
Brad Burb is the middle-aged husband of fashion obsessed Tiffany Burb and the father of John Burb (originally known as "Johnny Burb" in The Sims). He is a nature-lover, unlike his wife, Tiffany, who loves fashion. He moved to Pleasantview to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, which his wife Tiffany is still skeptical about. He has gray hair and wears a brown jacket over a dark purple shirt, with blue jeans and a pair of black boots. He lives in 63 Gunther Goth Highway.

She seems to be obsessed with cats, she even writes children's books about them as they are her main influence. She has gray hair, a pink dress with a flower apron and pink bandanna.

Quote from the Wiki.

Quote:
The Hatfield family is a Maxis-made family in The Sims that was available from the "Get Cool Stuff" section of the official EA site for The Sims, and may still be available from SimEchoes. The page at SimEchoes has pictures of their home at 9 Sim Lane. They are extremely poor, and are stereotypical rednecks. They have an outhouse and trash on the floor.


I have recreated this house as it is in the Sims 1 game with missing walls and wall paper/paint just as it is in Sims 1.

Edward Jones is part of the Maxis-made Jones Family, which could be downloaded from the official website for The Sims, and is still available from this page at SimEchoes. He starts as a Mailroom Clerk in the business track. Edward would like to put meaning back into the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses". Currently no one in SimCity envies this family.

Quote from the Wiki.

Quote:
The Mashuga family are a young couple, Frankie and Sylvia Marie, in The Sims: Livin' Large. They live in an octagon-shaped house in Neighborhood 2 and are the only pre-housed Sims in that neighborhood. They did not make it to The Sims 2, as The Sims 2 is set 25 years later and in a different neighborhood. It is considered that Frankie and Sylvia Marie either both died in Pleasantview, or didn't move from Neighborhood 2 to Pleasantview.
