Just want to relax and let your mind wander? To enjoy freshly caught fish at the restaurant “Friday's”, which is known across the island’s borders? To rediscover your own creativity? Welcome to Northeney, here you can do all this!
For a long time Northeney had stood in the shadow of larger neighbor’s islands. But especially in the last few years this has proved to be a great advantage. While the others have turned into tourist ghettos, Northeney can offer (almost) untouched nature. Enjoy endless walks in the dunes, experience fantastic sunsets (weather permitting), have a barbecue at the beach.
However, please don’t forget to bring a rain jacket and warm socks - here on the island in the Northern hemisphere the weather can change quickly!
Please note also that large parts of the dunes are subject to nature conservancy protection. Please keep on designated trails. Camping is only allowed at official camp sites. Please take your litter with you and keep your dog on a leash at all times.
After two years of working on this world it’s finally ready for release. It started as a small vacation world but somehow grew into a full world.
Northeney is a bit of a mixture of locations. In our world it would probably be located in the South-Western part of the Baltic Sea. Inspirational pictures below are from Hiddensee and the Zingst peninsula. But then, I took a lot of liberties with style and landscaping so it’s not a “real” place anymore. It’s not intended to be a recognisable place.
Things to note about Northeney:
Required Expansions: World Adventures, Late Night, Ambitions, Pets, Seasons, Generations, Showtime, Supernatural, University Life, Isla Paradiso, Into the Future

- Jynx’ rabbithole rugs (pets fixed) for stadium, business and journalism, hospital, spa, town hall, science, movie theater, bookstore, grocery from here: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=552847, post #6, you only need the basegame ones
- Misty’s rabbithole rugs for bistro , equestrian centre (both Naughty Sims Asylum, reqistration required) and resort (simsl3gacies, it's called Island Paradise Rabbit Hole Rug)
The island is roughly divided in to three parts - the town, the village and the remainder In the town you’ll find most rabbitholes and residentals. It’s the cultural center of the island and offers plenty of activities.
The village consists mostly of former farm houses or houses for the farm workers. They have been turned into family homes, often with stables. Orchards and pastures are close.
Large parts of the island are dunes though, inviting long walks at the beach or exploring the area on horseback. Fishing is possible almost everywhere.
List of Residental lots
All residental lots are fully usable and ready to play. To keep object count low, only some are fully decorated, some of them come with basic furniture only. All are CaSt'ed in the style of the world. Quite a few of them offer enough space to expand housing. Some lots are rather tiny though
List of Community lots
Playing in a roadless world
Our lovely little island is happy to welcome visitors and new residents. Please be advised that in order to maintain our quaint and quiet way of life, there are no vehicles permitted in Northeney - no cars, no bikes, no scooters, no brooms, no buses, no taxis, no limos, no trucks, and no carpool.

I've been looking forward to the release of Northeney so much, and it's really here! I'm going to need to tell my family to get on without much input from me because I'll be busy (after I finish cleaning the oven, etc.). This is such a beautiful world, with oodles of atmosphere and I'm looking forward to meeting all of the households in town. Thank you so much for creating and sharing! *Trying not to squee but it's not easy.
Well, looks like I'll have to come up with an excuse to visit this wonderful island soon. Maybe I'll even do it in my let's play. Thanks!
I love this world so much! And the buildings are great, especially the light house 🖤Thank you!
Thank you for this amazingly beautiful, and totally playable world. The atmosphere is wonderful, the lighting, weather and the attention to detail in every single lot is something rarely seen. This sort of attention normally comes with a price to pay, but not so with this world. It's everything you could hope for. Thank you Norn!
This world is so amazing that it is very hard to put into words. It has both vital parts which make a world perfect - playability and visual attractiveness. The terrain painting is really a feast for the eyes and the weather makes an amazing atmosphere. It has been an honour to watch your progress and I hope to see many more projects from you now
This looks absolutely wonderful and I can see a lot of loving detail in everything; the world, the lots, the sims. Congratulations on finishing it and thank you for sharing it!
It looks amazing Thank you so much for sharing it!
It looks absolutely stunning!Honestly thank you so much for sharing it!!You did a fantastic job!Love it!
Amazing! Truly special, thank you for sharing it with everyone.
Very nice world. It looks so perfectly made and peacefull. Congrats.
Wow This is brilliant! It even has dive lots and doesn't need tons of CC.
I'd love to start a game in this world; does it play well without Late Night? I'm happy to work around the professional bars by replacing them with something else, but would not want a major landmark to go missing or for things to look very different from what you envisioned.
Thanks for sharing this!
What a wonderful job, Norn! I'm so thrilled to see this stunning world released - and a well-deserved picked upload, too. I'm honored to have made a small contribution to it. Thanks so much for making it CC free (except for the rabbit hole rugs) and for the save game! Great job, everyone!
This world is beautiful and amazing and unlike any other I have seen. It is not just a pretty face though, it is a joy to play with. Thank you!
YAY! I am so excited to see this in the game.
As beautiful as a painting. I admire creators so much who are so amazing in terraforming, landscaping and terrain-painting, like it is presented in this world. Even the map view is beautiful. My favorite maybe is how the town is arranged on three levels of height, it's unique. Thank you for still creating a custom world for Sims 3 players, and keeping Sims 3 alive and exciting.
oh YAY! I've been waiting for this since I first saw the posts on your site. It reminds me so much of my Nantucket rambles. I can't wait to get the chance to go exploring! It looks amazing - thank you!
The landscape really brings me back to the times I've visited the islands IRL
Looks like somewhere I definitely need to explore
This is a beautiful world!!! Thank you so much for sharing it!
This is absolutely fantastic. The building design and layout is wonderful. And the terrain paints are awesome. I generally do not play with save files but I sure will this time around. Thank you so much for all your hard work and sharing it with everyone.
Thanks for the creation I'm always looking for something new for my game.
