This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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:
Population: unpopulated (but savegame available)
Size: 1024x1024 - medium
World Type: Base (suburban)
Number of community lots: 51 (plus 6 hidden and 3 empty ones)
Number of residental lots: 26
File size: ca. 53 MB
Number of layers: 13 plus global layer
Number of terrain textures: 9, on some chunks I used more than the recommended 8 per chunk but that shouldn’t be a problem
Spawn Points: all spawners from Basegame, Late Night, Pets, Seasons, Supernatural, IP. Not all of them are in the world, some are on lots only.
There are only a couple of spawners from WA, none from ITF, also no junk spawners (Ambitions). Junk piles can be found on some lots though.
All non-opportunity based harvestable plants from all EP can be found on the island (in the world or on a lot).
Most parts of the islands are routable, only steep slopes or areas with dense vegetation are not accessible for sims. Non-camera routing was applied at the map edges.
Rabbitholes and Careers
Required Expansions: World Adventures, Late Night, Ambitions, Pets, Seasons, Generations, Showtime, Supernatural, University Life, Isla Paradiso, Into the Future
No store content, no Stuff Packs required
Built on patch level: 1.67.2.024
- 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 save will add population to Northeney as well as fix most problems listed under "Known Issues". I strongly recommend to start a new game in Northeney by starting the save even if you replace the population by your own sims (but you'll miss a lot of fun!)
The save is populated with 23 households and 60 living sims in total (this includes two dogs, a horse and two cats). Most of them have careers assigned and some skills, as well as relationships between households.
How to use the savegame
First download the world, unzip it and install the sims3pack the same way you install all sims3packs. Quit your game and the launcher afterwards.
Then download the save file, unzip it and put the entire folder called Northeney_save.sims3 AS IS with its content into your game’s Saves folder. Please don’t rename it and don’t remove files from it.
Where your Saves folder is located depends on your operating system. For Windows 7 it’s in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.
Now start your game. The save file should show up along with your other saves, you can identify it by it’s name and the missing preview picture as it was saved with no active household.
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
br = bedroom, ba = bathroom. Cribs are not included in the sleeps count.
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.

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.
For Package files:
1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
For Sims3Pack files:
1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
