Welcome to "The Beginning of Desiderata".
Only Base Game needed to play.

Serenely nestled in the hills, Desiderata is a place of dreams, hopes and aspirations. Many will find the quiet hills a wonderful place to relax and pursue their favorite pastimes. Who knows what destiny has in store for the Sims of Desiderata?

These are not the corrupted Sims from Desiderata Valley, these are extracted and cloned form the ancestors of Desiderata Valley with the original DNA, original genetics and original looks. All Sims have been cycle through all ages and back to adult.
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.)
Using the AGS program (AnyGameStarter) making a base game hood with clean and empty template with no Maxis content.
There are only 40 Sims in 20 families, there are no NPC or Townies in this hood.
There is no way to know if EA/Maxis made all the Sims in Desiderata Valley or if they were born in game so to that end you may come up with different looking Sims when the babies are born

To install place the N340 folder into C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods .

@KiwiKatie000 sorry for the delay but there are Sims in this hood and there all in the bin. Go read the download page for it will tell you that there are no houses in the hood, it is the beginning and you will need to make it up however you want to.

Thank you! I was disappointed to find that the version of this town shipped with the game is such a mess. Loved the homes and the Sims are quite interesting. Just placed the beginning version in my game :-) Love the idea of starting from the very beginning.
