Hey everyone!

I’m back with another genetically correct hood! You can check out my GC version of Pleasantview with scripted events here - I also explain what genetically correct means there as well in case you aren’t sure

Today as part of my quest to make all Sims 2 hoods genetically correct, I bring you Strangetown!

General Information:
This is a genetically correct version of Strangetown. All sim appearances have been corrected so they now resemble their ancestors! This hood was built on top of clean templates, and no other changes have been made to the hood aside from the adjustments to the sim’s appearances and DNA!

Notice: I used a mod, equal genetics while creating these sims. I do not claim to be anything but a simpleton when it comes to genetics, and I know that some of these sims’ genetics aren’t realistic - Like a blond and brunette having a blond kid. I don’t claim to know anything about genetics, so before you genetic purists come at me just know - I know this and don’t care.

My general notion was that if one of their ancestors had a gene, then they could too.

Notes:

- This is CC FREE

- I used a default skin and eyes when taking the pictures. The sims will not come with these. I used Pitstop Skinblend and Poppet Clear Eyes

- All sims have been given recessive genetics - and I will say here and now they may not make actual sense scientifically speaking, once more - I don’t care about that. 98% of the sims - even the ancestors - have recessive genes. At the very end of the post you will find a chart of each sim and their recessive genes.

- Sims may get some wants or fears of their ancestors or dead relatives becoming zombies or resurrected, this is just because of the way I did this, their deaths are fresh in the playables minds.

- This hood was built on a clean template Strangetown, all ancestors and dead sims are safe to resurrect

- This was made with Ultimate Collection, so unfortunately you will need this or all packs for this to work.

- Pascal’s unborn baby will be genetically correct as well

- When you add the subhood version with townies, you’ll notice that the townie and NPC names get randomized and aren’t their original names. Though annoying, this is normal and you will have to rename them all yourself.

- The no townie version of ST STILL comes with Bella Goth, Crystal Vu, Abhijeet Cho and Meredith Lillard.

- I used two different clean template versions for this hood. There may be slight differences depending on what the original creators of the clean templates did to the hood. See credits.

- Bella Goth is also genetically correct with her PV ancestors

- Some sims such as Ophelia Nigmos and Kristen Loste had no ancestors with the original hairs, skins and/or eyes they have in the BG hood. Because of this, I chose the next best hair/eyes/skins that I felt brought more genetic diversity to the hood and kept the original feel of the sim

Important notice about Scripted Events:
If you are having issues with the Scripted Events:

FIRST - Navigate to your “Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection (or The Sims 2)/Neighborhoods” and delete the NeighborhoodManager.package file within this folder. Reload your game. When you load the game back up it will automatically regenerate a new, fresh NeighborhoodManager.package file - See if this fixes the scripted event problem. For some reason it can break really easily and a majority of the time resetting this file will do the trick. HUGE thanks to Cindy from PleasantSims for suggesting this! All credit to her!

SECOND - If the first suggestion doesn’t work, you will need to redownload the hood, and BEFORE you run your game, take out all of your non essential mods (leave in mods like no unlink on delete, no townie regen, things that are essential) from your mods folder (just mods, cc is fine to stay in) and put it in a safe folder while you just play through the SE - then when they’re done, put the mods back in.

99.9999% of the time either of these suggestions will fix the problem. If you try both and they don’t work, let me know


With all that out of the way, let’s get to downloading!

*Update: For some reason the site is giving me issues with uploading the version without townies. If you are interested in this version, I suggest you go to my Tumblr Post and download it via the link there until I am able to get it here on MTS : )

P.S.

As promised, below are all of the recessive genetics of the sims in the hood in case you get a baby and go “Where the heck did that come from?!”. The parts that say N/A are if the recessive is the same as their dominant



Yes, I know I spelled Kristen's name wrong lol
