I hope it's compatible for WinRAR, though. As there might be extracting issues if it isn't.

But these would be the latest versions of Emerald Heights!


I downloaded one of the Downtown versions. No problem at all using WinRAR. Installed in game and appears that all is well :-)

Hey everyone! Glad to see some action here. Missed everyone! I just got done with my exams; so sorry for not participating more! I've missed out on a lot here on MTS it seems.

I'll get to testing some of those ASAP. Thanks, Jawusa!

ETA: I just went looking around in the occupied apartment buildings in the 'AL with Sims' version, and I just noticed a few things. I've uploaded some screenshots of each to point out what I found so far. However, on the bright side, so far, I haven't had any issues with sims living in apartments traveling to community lots.

Lovely hood as always, especially sims bios. Tested AL with sims version - only thing I noticed is when playing family living in apartment, tables neighbour apartments disappear. Can't be patient enough to wait for Aileen Landing, Pets Stories hood and other projects you have in mind.

Hi, I downloaded this hood last week and checked it out. You all have done a really great job. My computer wasn't performing well with all the large lots but I am working on getting it to do better.

I contacted M.M.A.A. about joining the Hood Building Group, and he said "Sure!"

Wow, I am so happy to hear this! I only just got access to my computer after not being able to use it since late March, so this is such great news to hear upon being able to play again!

Good news. It may sound greedy but can we have some info about Hood Building Group next projects?

Sure!

Because many people also requested the Sci-Fi theme in our poll (not just City Life).. we are also going to create an Alien neighborhood. Actually, we have already begun with it.. and soon we will create a new thread for that neighborhood.

But we have also received requests of re-creating the Pet Stories neighborhoods for Sims 2.. just like we did it for the Life Stories neighborhoods.
However, I and Mark already re-created all the lots of these neighborhoods... we now only have to add the sims to the neighborhoods... So they should come very soon.
