Welcome to "The Beginning of Strangetown".

(3rd installment of the "Beginning Hoods".)

Going back to the beginning of Strangetown.
The UFO has not crashed (yet) so there is no crater and the earthquake has not happen so the little hill has not formed (yet).

Have you ever wondered how Strangetown would have turned out if you were able to play the Strangetown Ancestor's from the start.
Well now is your chance, bring them up to current Strangetown or take them in a whole new direction.

Just a little back story of why I made this hood, EA/Maxis deleted most of the ancestor's in Strangetown, (This is one of the reason why Strangetown is corrupted from the start) and when I found out I could restore the deleted Sims so they would become playable again, I did it!

After following "A summary of the illustrated tutorial by Celesta92059" on how to Resurrect Sims with no character data
I made Sims with all the stats that I could find in-game and on the Wiki to fix the deleted Sims with.
I fixed all the deleted Sims so I could extract them using SimPE.
After extracting them I cloned them in this new "The Beginning of Strangetown" hood using the AGS program making a clean and empty environment with no Maxis content.
There are only 41 Sims in 25 families, there are no townies/NPC's in this hood.
There is no way to know if EA/Maxis made all the Sims in Strangetown or if they were born in game so to that end you may come up with different looking Sims when the babies are born

These Sims have the original DNA, original Genetics and original looks of the Strangetown Ancestor's.
(These are not the corrupted Strangetown Sims. They are cloned and fixed from the Strangetown ancestors.)
I tried to use the same style and color clothing they had in the game.
Some of the tops will have different colors than they originally wore. (If its not in the Base Game then they don't have it.)
After cloning them I cycle through all the ages from toddler through elder and back down to adult.

I have not placed any lots in this hood. Most players like to remodel or use houses they made or downloaded anyway.
To install place the STR1 folder in your "C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods" folder.
