Well here it is, after much stress and toil, I give you the updated Queenstown, with a new country area – Gibbs Valley (thats Gibbs as in Gibson, not gibs in the gruesome counterstrike sense of the word! That would be hilarious though…). Gibbs Valley is a place for your Sims to get away from the hustle & bustle of Queenstown, get back to nature, and spend time in seclusion.
This isn’t a massive overhaul of the town or anything, it’s just a small addition to enrich the functionality of Queenstown to keep up with the Pets EP.
As you drive through Gibbs Pass towards the valley, you’ll notice the scenery change from Alpine, the flora is a little less evergreen, a little more dynamic. There’s room for your pets to run around freely, with large lots perfect for farms, or for breeding horses. Speaking of horses, what better way to train them by taking them for a nice long nature walk up Opal Peak, to take in the breathtaking views of Queenstown from the top. You can also relax in the hot springs at the top, and if you’ve got kids and they’re not already worn out from the major hike up the hill, there’s a playground to keep them occupied while you relax.
Gibbs Valley also houses the Equestrian Centre, and a jumping park to build those horsie skills. Dogs and cats are not forgotten, there is a large, landscaped dog park and cat jungle next to the Gibbs Valley Shopping Centre. There really is no need to go into town if you don’t want to! Unless of course you have school or work in the town… Then I guess you should!
A few other things have changed since the last release of Queenstown.
I have named & numbered all the lots with street numbers, and I’ve included a handy map for your convenience. I have also upgraded a few lots to be a little more functional and/or aesthetically pleasing, for example the restaurant now has an outdoor eating area, and there is a small cafe type place (serve yourself of course) outside the grocery store/theatre. The fire station now has the missing fire alarm too (still can’t believe I missed that in the first edition). I also included my Family Fun Park that I released separately in the world this time, as my sims use it all the time and I figured I might as well!
I’ve built 2 new houses – both farm houses in the new area, but apart from that there are no new residential lots.
World Requirements and Custom Content:
Before installing this world it is recommended that you back up your save games and additional lots you might have, delete your world caches folder and uninstall the original Queenstown. This world is updated using the original Queenstown world as a base, and so I think the old world will need to be uninstalled before installing the new one. Make sure the old world file is removed from the “Installed worlds” folder too.
The EP and Custom Content requirements are exactly the same as for the original Queenstown.
The same CC objects that were attached to the Queenstown world file are the same, except they have been updated for pets if required. I have attached a rar with the fixed CC separately for convenience, which includes the rabbit holes made by Raven Shadow @MTS. If you have already got Queenstown installed and updated all your CC then you will not need to do anything, just install the new world. Please ensure you read all the information for old Queenstown as well.
OK, well I think thats everything! I hope you enjoy the new additions to Queenstown :) I’m off to play it finally! As always, let me know if there are any major problems that can’t be fixed in your own.
(Also, I will work on updating my CC over the weekend. Its apparent that most people will have already fixed their CC so I’m not sweating it too bad, but yeah, I’ll endeavour to have it done at the weekend…)
