6/4/19 Update: I've updated a couple of the lots to have Seasons-friendly roofing, and added hot/cold outfits for all of the Newcrest Sims! (Don't worry, Seasons isn't required.) The save was made with Seasons disabled though, so if you have Seasons you can still choose your starting season as usual. I also added a second save file which I'll explain down below, just know that there's two save files in the updated zip.

New Stuff: So as I said up above, there's two save files included in this mod. One is "NSB Save", which is just a brand new save game with Newcrest filled, with the updates I listed above. The second one, "NSB Save - Townies" has all of the Newcrest updates including hot/cold outfits for EVERY townie from every pack that came out before Seasons. I only used CAS items from base game and their respective DLC, so you shouldn't have any issues. If you don't want your townies updated, you can just delete that save file when you load up your game. The townies weren't changed at all, just given new hot/cold outfits that match their style instead of being randomly generated. That's all for this update, thanks for downloading the mod!

The Sims 4 has had a lot of substantial updates, including one that added a new, totally empty world for us to build on! The problem with this world is; not everyone is a builder. So, I took on the project of filling Newcrest with unique, modern-style houses, community lots, and families, for those of you who don't use Newcrest due to its... emptiness. Everything is built with the base game only, so anyone can use it.

I built everything myself, and have speed build/CAS videos for everything on my YouTube channel! I used the Sims 3 free-rotate, sizing up objects, split-leveling, half walls, and so on. The only new feature I didn't use was the major CAS update, as it came out as I was working on the last lot. As I said before, this is made with all base game content, but it isn't a mod--it's the save files containing the filled Newcrest. Please read the installation instructions below before you post issues about this not working!

Install Instructions:
Firstly, DO NOT PUT THIS IN YOUR MOD FOLDER! This "mod" is a save file, as I know no way to mod the game so that it replaces the empty Newcrest with the filled version I made every time you hit "new game". Because of this, the files you download do not go in your mod folder. Please make a backup of your save files before you install this mod.
  • Backup your save folder somewhere.
  • Download the zip file and extract the .save files.
  • Put the .save files into your save folder.
  • In game, select "Load Game" and you should see an entry called "NSB Save". Load that save.
  • You're all done! This save file is your filled Newcrest, so be sure not to overwrite it or you'll have to re-download the mod!
Having a hard time finding your save folder? Its usual installation path is: Local Disk (C: )>Users>(current user)>My Documents>Electronic Arts>The Sims 4>saves

Notes:
  • Since this is a save file, it should always be compatible with every game version since the version I created it with, which is 1.42. I won't actively check every patch to make sure it's still working, so if you ever have issues with the file not loading properly just PM me and I'll look into it!
  • If you want to see the speed builds for this world, click here .
  • All of these lots and households are already uploaded to the gallery, under #NSB. I can figure out how to upload individual lots to MTS though, if you want.
  • The Sims packaged with this mod are all employed and equipped with various skills. The Price household (in the starter neighborhood) is designed to be a somewhat challenging family to play, and only have $20 to their name.

Permissions:
Since these are all my own personal creations, you may not upload this anywhere else. You are more than welcome to use this in let's plays, and let me know if you do! I'll be sure to check them out.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

5/2/18 Update: I've updated the save to fix some minor MOO issues in Red Flats and Midtown Books. It's also a fresh save after Cats and Dogs released, so you should have strays wandering all the worlds now. There is only one file in this version, so you can delete the other ones safely. Thanks for using my version of Newcrest!

Hey guys! This shouldn't need to be updated for seasons since it's just a save file, but I'm thinking about releasing a version with the new glass roofs so that some of the houses are a bit more seasons-friendly (wouldn't want it to snow in people's houses, after all). In general, though, it should work fine with every new patch without needing to be updated.

If you're referring to the curved porches/foundations, there's a curved in the walls section of build mode. You can't put walls on it though, only fences.

I just downloaded your mod and I like it for the most part I haven't checked all the houses yet but the house next to the biggest lot it seems you can't enter the house something seems to be wrong with the front and back porch steps it looks great but it won't allow anyone onto the porch to knock on the door or enter the house my spellcaster was able to enter after I moved him in by teleporting but everyone else stays outside in front or in the swimming pool

Thank you so much! I'm too lazy to fullfil Newcrest, so I decided to avoid it and play another neighborhoods. And finally somebody is so awesome to give me some new opportunities! Thanks for good details, great interior design, well-developed characters! (Sorry for my grammar)
You are great, thanks! =)
