Default The Sims Life Stories
Install Instructions
Warning: DON'T put these into TS2, these neighborhood are NOT meant to play in TS2. Instead, download recreated versions of the Sims Stories neighborhoods if you intend to play these neighborhoods in TS2.

Some how managed to import Sims Life Stories neighborhoods into TS2. Some say, if you first move the neighborhoods into a Uni+NL+OFB EP game only, go into each lot and make one structural change, you can move the neighborhoods into an all EPs game. But this is still a experimental approach! You might end up with crashes if you do so.

Which is why you should download recreated neighborhoods for TS2. Four Corners and Bitville are both available for download.

Non-Default Replacement Versions
  • Cut and paste LS01 and LS02 to

Note: You have to play through the story in order to unlock the story rewards, which is why, I didn't do a default replacement version.

Default The Sims Pet Stories
Install Instructions
Warning: DON'T put these into TS2, these neighborhood are NOT meant to play in TS2. Instead, download recreated versions of the Sims Stories neighborhoods if you intend to play these neighborhoods in TS2.

While technicially, these neighborhoods CAN be imported into TS2 if you have The Sims 2 Pets EP installed, BUT, it doesn't mean that the neighborhoods are free from corruption then.
There's a NPC controller data (dog show judge) which doesn't exist in TS2. So, importing a Pet Stories neighborhood into TS2 clashes with the NPC controllers, since in TS2, the NPC type number used for dog show judges is used for another NPC (I think housekeeper NPC). And even if you only have all EPs up to Pets but nothing more, there'd still be a missing instance for NPC controllers which could cause corruption.

Which is why you should download recreated neighborhoods for TS2. Garden Heights, Mesa FLats, Arbor Falls are all available here.

Non-Default Replacement Versions

Default The Sims Castaway Stories
Install Instructions
Warning: DON'T put these into TS2, these neighborhood are NOT meant to play in TS2. Instead, download recreated versions of the Sims Stories neighborhoods if you intend to play these neighborhoods in TS2.

While some might suceed in importing the other Stories neighborhoods into TS2 with a few tricks (which is not recommended, though!), there is absolutely NO chance of success in importing Castaway Stories neighborhoods into TS2. While The Sims Castaway Stories is similar to The Sims 2, it's still a whole game on its own, completely independent from TS2.

The Hood Building Group planned on recreating both neighborhoods, which are also in the works... However, it will never be like the ones in The Sims Castaway Stories. Since TS2 does not support medium-sized neighborhoods and lots up to 100x100 size.

Note: You need to replace your current NeighborhoodManager.package file in order to bypass the story and unlock all story rewards.
If you don't bypass the story, the game might crash then, because it would search for sims who don't exist in the neighborhood... so you'd get nothing but errors if you didn't bypass the story.

Known Issues:
No issues for Wanmami island but Felicity Island...

It was really hard to remove the hard-coded story from Felicity Island. Simple re-numbering and changing the neighborhood ID didn't work...
I managed to mod the story's out - so it's a free neighborhood like Wanmami Island...

But it's not perfect yet. The story rewards are all there in my game, however, the travel button is greyed out. Fortunately, you CAN travel but you have to click on the portrals if you want to travel. I'll update Felicity Island if I found out a way of re-enabling the travel button without enabling the story again.

Default Future Updates
Update: 15th January 2019
For those who use Windows 10 and have difficulties with getting these templates to work.
If you see that the default sims still appear in your neighborhoods despite of installing these empty templates, please try the following.

Apparently, Windows 10 stores the default templates somewhere, which is why, the game still adds the characters to the neighborhoods.

In order to fix this, go to C:\Users\Your Username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES
and install my templates there as well, just like in the normal Program Files. Thank you, somedaythesun for reporting this issue!

OMG!!! This is so wonderful!
I've been using your 'stealth' hoods for years - now I can have everything completely empty!
I can build and build and build and... well, you get the idea
Thank YOU! (and Moo, who I'm sure is very pleased you've continued the project!)

This is perfect timing! I just got a new computer and am about ready to put in clean templates! "Thank you" doesn't seem like it's enough!

THank you a lot! It must have been very hard and long work.
Just a question (I hope I didn't look over it in the thread description). I can't seem to find what i the different between default and non-default when deciding which hoods to download.
What is the difference?

@lientebollemeis

Sorry, I thought it would be clear... well, the default neighborhood templates REPLACE the original neighborhoods, so, if you install those, you will lose Maxis sims.
However, if you prefer to KEEP the original neighborhoods with their sims. Then, you want the non-default version, which is just a copy of the original neighborhood, but without sims.

The difference is that you can play the non-default neighborhoods alongside with the original ones. With default versions, you cannot do that.

This might just solve the issue I have with merging main hoods as subhoods. I've wanted to create a sort of megahood with Desiderata Valley as a subhood for some time, but have been hesitating for months. MeetMetotheRiver has some great downloads for that, but to be honest, I didn't want to have to deal with the double characters in the game; nor did I want to deal with hundreds of Maxis characters and really bloat my hood. And apparently, there might have been other things to think about as well. The only setback is that I will have to make my own townies and main-character Sims, but I think I can cope with that. Thank you!
