Welcome to "The Beginning of Pleasantview".

Have you ever wondered how Pleasantview would have turned out if you were able to play the Pleasantview Ancestor's from the start.
Well now is your chance, bring them up to current Pleasantview 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 Pleasantview, (This is the main reason why Pleasantview 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 http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Resurrecting_tips
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 Pleasantview" hood using the AGS program making a clean and empty environment with no Maxis content.
There are only 39 Sims in 20 families, there are no townies/NPC's in this hood.

The SC4 I used is one I made and have here at MTS: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=521476

These Sims have the original DNA, original Genetics and original looks.
(These are not the corrupted Pleasantview Sims. They are cloned and fixed from the Pleasantview ancestors.)
I tried to use the same style and color clothing they had as elders if it was in the game.
Irma Oldie will not have the Beehive hair.
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 as elders 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 use the small island in the upper right corner you will need a camera mod, I use GunMod's Camera mod http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=97642 and it works great.

I downloaded this because it seems like a fun challenge. However, when I went to my game it's not there. Are there special downloading instructions?

Later: I went back and found that I had to open the Beginning of Pleasantview and take the folder out (N110). Then I had to put this folder into the Neighborhoods folder in my Sims 2 game. It works just fine now!! Thanks! I can't wait to start my story and see how it plays out. :D

Just follow your own hart on this. lol

You can if you want to make Polly Tech 7 into a custom alien, make sure it will work in a base game and I will download him.

The sim was in the hood before he got deleted.

o0o0o0o TY TY TY!!!! I tried playing with the last one but was severely disappointed that the bin families weren't included due to the way you set it up, as I wanted them to be part of the 1st generation instead of later on and this version does exactly what I want for that to take place.

I did it and even without mods (but with cheats)

Firstly, Dulcinea gave birth to Tango and Nestor became father.
I stargazed with the expensive telescope and he got abducted by aliens. (Both Dulcinea and Tango got a negative memory)

I knew, if he would return back, he will be pregnant by the default alien.
So I saved and entered the neighborhood before he came back but he was still abducted.

I moved Polly Tech 7 to an empty lot and I created a floating house for him. (It looks like a UFO)

Nestor walked by and I made him selectable (using cheats).
Then I used the Tombstone of L and D to impregnate Nestor with Polly Tech 7.

I saved and entered the neighborhood.
I selected the Caliente family and Nestor came back.

After three days, he got an alien baby boy by Polly Tech 7
I named him Flamenco but he has alien skintone and black eyes.

Perhaps, Nina and Dina will get a new skintone. Lol

If you want Flamenco to have reg. skintone you can use "Custom Skintone Selector" by Christianlov: http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=284572

No mater what I have always gotten alien skintone babies and I use this mod all the time. (At least he will look like his picture with this mod.)
