Going to give my friend Carl a plug for an amazing new world that a number of fans over at his forums of Carl’s Sims 3 Guides teamed up and created!
“When a team of explorers discovered Union Cove, they knew it wasn’t an ordinary place. Its beauty and mysteries attracted Sims from all the world, who live in peace and harmony through a set of laws, known as “The Rules”. Considered home by many Sims, Union Cove is fully developed technologically and beyond, offering anything a citizen may need. The spirit of justice and friendship brought by the pioneers made this beautiful land the most attractive place to live in, while it’s mysteries are still unsolved. Can one unveil all there is behind Union Cove?”
Union Cove is a massive and meticulously crafted World for The Sims 3. This project was carried out in secret on our Sims 3 Forum over the course of six to seven months. The team began with Naga, Leto85, and Anushka. It was decided they would expand their team to involve some of the best builders on the forum. Not everyone could come along for the ride, so they chose from among our talented community to recruit others to help.
The team were given a Top Secret rank on the forum, which allowed access to a special board only they could see. Anushka lovingly crafted the world in all its beauty, with Joria, Ausette, Danefaith and Samoht04 helping to create its many lots. Some members were asked for permission to use their lots in a secret world, and thankfully kept quiet while the team developed.
Union Cove is special. Being a collaborative effort, it achieved a higher quality of design that is unlikely to be achieved by a solo builder. This world saw many tweaks over the course of development, and as a result the World we have before us today is a very much refined product with a reach that will extend far beyond the boundaries of our little forum.
To the entire team, I thank you for letting me share this gift with the Sims community. It’s an honor for this thing I started to grow such that we had enough talented people to pull off something of this size.
