Please note for the Subhood version
So as per any populated Subhood, it is recommended that you run through hood checker after attaching to your other hood, as sometimes, very rarely the character ID's get thrown around. So it is always best to back up and double check with it!

Welcome to a Genetically Correct and Fixed Veronaville!




This neighbourhood was created with all the oringal generation 1 Sims, merged them together in the form of breeding, and carried on until I got to the pre-mades, to which they are now all genetically related (And look similar) to their ancestors, with exception of Puck and Bottom Summerdream as they are adopted.

The map features no townies, only the pre-mades in both versions. The Sims are identical in the form of skills and interests, however, I have made some tweaks to relationships and memories.

Memories do not contradict themselves now, added EP related memories and wants such as degrees and "had first WooHoo etc", memories have been added were they were missed before, such as offspring aging up, grandchildren's aging up etc, maxed skills, etc etc.

Ages are also synced up correctly now. Goneril might get the respect she is entitled to now!

SimBim families have now been moved in to some houses built by EA, I just furnished them accordingly.

I have also created a graveyard for all the other deceased Sims, so if you want to resurrect them, by all means! However, they do not have any memories strong relationships.

New Story Book photos for the hood thumbnail and families have been created to reflect the new genetics, created extra ones for the SimBim families.

Please note that all Sims were created as new Sims in a clean, empty environment. They are not the original Sims that have had a makeover, this is so that the genetics can all work accordingly.

I also went through and changed everyone's name to be in default language only, so if you are playing on a non-english version of the game, the names will not randomised but will be the English versions.




Lots;
Community lots - 5
Residential lots - 21
Empty Residential - 15

Detailed list of all lots included;

Families - 7 total
Sims comparison to their counterpart;


List of Sims age, names and genders of each household;



This map was run through Hood Checker numerous times, there are no issues.


Any problems let me know!

Enjoy your *new* hood!

I downloaded the hood and later got a notification saying "Juliette and Patrizio are no longer best friends", while Juliette didn't even have Patrizio in her relationships panel. Could there have been an accident to set something like this?

This might of been an accident? Though, in my game she knows him? But not set as best friends, I will have a little look! Though, it should not cause any issues with the hood iteself!

Thank you for this! I love how they turned out and it's sad Maxis did not use correct genetics because these sims look way better now, but still retain their character, which was presented.
A quick question: how is it with deceased sims, like Cordelia, Caliban, Hero, Contessa, Claudio and Olivia? are they safe to resurrect?

I've been looking for something like this for so long. Thank you.
PS. Do you know were I can get the townies that came with veronaville? I'd love it if I could have the townies.

Hello @wiksims! I think the ancestors were technically an after thought and how the pre-mades look was meant to be how they looked, if that makes sense? But it was a fun project nevertheless and I also really liked how each Sim turned out!

And yes, ALL deceased Sims are safe to resurrect if you wish, though they do not have any memories, relationships etc.

@AGkittie, glad I could assist with you finding this world, I have also done it for Strangetown Main Hood, Strangetown Subhood and Pleasantview Main Hood Pleasantview Subhood, but have not uploaded them on MTS (YET)

I also have a a Uberhood version that has them all attached with correct interests etc. as sometimes attaching the other subhood randomises them!

But to answer your question, they do not come with townies! Sorry!

Thank you SO MUCH for this! I think the translators didn't realise that Veronaville was a Shakespeare reference (or maybe they thought it'd fly over kids heads or something?) so they translated everyone's name in my native language in a way that kind of deleted the references.... -face palm-

for me, the monty family (who lives at the monty ranch) is unable to be played, and everytime some of my other sims try to call patrizio monty the game crashes. most of the time if households are like that it solves the problem if you move them out and since you have to open a household at least once (which i haven't been able to do since it crashes every single time) to move them out i haven't been able to do it.

Oh really?! I am glad you got to see their "true names". Hope you enjoy seeing all the names!

Hello! Sorry I didn't get to this sooner! I do not get a ping for when I get comments on my downloads (?) but I was tagged in your help post in the forum and saw that is was bad CC (Hair or clothes or both) and removing it from Patrizio has helped! Glad you got it sorted!
