Welcome to Project Zanes Hollow! In this download, you'll find five medium sized maps that work well without any camera mods and fit together like a puzzle!

You may be asking yourself... why five? I thought there were only three different types of sub-hoods.. add that to the base.. that's only four? Well, I decided that sometimes.. you need a little extra room to grow! Also, if you want to use the same terrains multiple times, it's no fun to have to use the SAME four over and over again. So there's an extra one there for mixin' and matchin'!

Now you may be asking yourself, what is Project Zanes Hollow? Well, it's a project I've been thinking about doing for a very long time, and just now decided to go through with it! I was originally going to upload a neighborhood that exists in my game with the same name that I've had for five years or so, but I decided that it would be much smarter to create a new neighborhood specifically for this purpose! These are the custom maps I have made for them! Since I wanted to document my progress, I have decided to upload the maps right away for anyone to play with. I also know that, I, as a Sims player, always wanted maps that connected with eachother to add realism! I figured there were probably other Simmers out there that felt the same way!

Now, enough blabbing! Let's get to the technical stuff!

About This Set:
This set includes 5 maps that will be included in Project Zanes Hollow. There is one zip folder included in this download, with all 5 maps inside. Each map includes 1 .SC4 file and 5 .PNG files - adding up to 6 files for each map. Multiply that by 5 and you have 30 files total. All 30 files should be placed in your C:\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\SC4Terrains folder.

The Maps:
  • I have named all maps "ZanesHollow+a letter a-e." This way, they're all located in one place for easy locating.
  • Each photo is looking in the same cardinal direction, ie. towards the east. (According to SimCity 4)
  • Under each photo, I have put what I consider the hood to be, but they can obviously be mixed and matched to be whatever type of hood you desire!

This is what I consider the "base" hood of the set!

This is what I consider the "Business District" of the hood!

This is what I consider the "College Campus" of the hood!

This is what I consider the "Downtown" of the hood!

I consider this the "Extra" hood for growth.

You may have noticed that the letter after each hood is not only alphabetical, but also is the first letter of what I consider them to be, aside from the base hood which is a.
