Someone could be able to make CC ones. Eventually there could be a open world mod and create a style recolor mod and TS3 won't be needed anymore.

An open world mod simply can't be done. The source code would be needed for such a thing, and even then you'd probably have to refactor a lot of the game's core. I wish it was possible, but it sadly isn't

Open world is not possible but even if it was it brings up all new issues. If you are now open, what is it doing with the sims? Are they frozen on their now open lot? Aging and doing things without you? You can't just make a world be open, it comes with all kinds of other considerations. The reason sims 3 has dead (barely any sims) open venues and the rest rabbit holes is because of it's open world. You need an amazing computer to be able to have all venues both open and lively while also processing the rest of an open world. This is why sims 2 venues are busy, it's because the game focuses all its processing into one lot.

Ah, yeah. Good points, jo. I can totally see your point ,especially if you consider the fact that it'd be insane on resources if you entered an open-world "Twikkii Island" or any of the other vacation destinations. It would probably lag to hell and back since obviously you know how there are tons of Sims there... That, and what about ghosts? Would they fly around and terrorize others or would they just remain stationary... Sims 2 was definitely made with a closed-world in mind. that, and obviously machines wouldn't even come close to being able to cope with loading a whole neighborhood on the fly...

household/family thumbnails.
how are the position and pose of each character determined?
some of the factors seem to be family relations and relationship levels; and sometimes age.

REIA files.
what exactly are they?
so far seen them only in the pre-made main neighborhood folders.

REIA files are the little videos which play. AFAIK, nobody has managed to make their own custom ones.

I reinstalled Windows 10 and the Ultimate Collection. I'm not seeing trees as hood deco from lot view (example) in any neighborhood whatsoever. I do see other deco from lot view, such as alleys and street lights, and lot imposters appear just fine. Is there something I need to do with my graphics card, or is it something else? I've got an Intel + ATI combo, and everything was working just fine before reinstalling my system...

There are two things - you need the cheat in the config file (the userStartup.cheat file): boolprop dontMergeNHFlora false
and you may need the relevant hack that gets some of the neighbourhood stuff to show up that is otherwise reluctant. When I remember the name, I'll update the post and try and find it for you.

They won't age because unplayed, but they'd do stuff. It would be like visiting a really big community lot.

Hi. They call me Sandi Greenwood, after my two favorite premade girls, Sandi French and Jade Greenwood. But I like 'em all. I don't play much though. I draw fanart and write fanfic more than I play, and yes I ship Sandi and Jade really hard, even made 'em in sims 1 2 and 4.

Well, I for one really don't care about the flyby - it just takes more time for my hood to load

I couldn't get on with them because I hated calling Little Carping anything other than Little Carping. It was no use telling myself to pretend. I think it was the Pleasantview flyby that worked best for me - or maybe Europa, can't remember now. I liked the flyby but hated the name change.
