Sims 4 worlds

Here is the list of worlds shipped with The Sims 4 base game and expansion packs. Click each world name to see list of lots and families. The Sims 4 does NOT offer additional download-able worlds, and there is NO ability for players to make custom worlds, as it was possible with Create-a-World for The Sims 3.

Teoalida’s rating criteria

Street layout: I love urban-like worlds, streets with dense rows of lots on both sides, I hate lots spread around the map.
Lot sizing: I love worlds having many standard lot sizes: 20×20, 20×30, 30×30, 30×40, 40×40, balanced towards smaller lots, I hate odd-sized lots (non-divisible by 10).
Landscape: I love sea and mountains, I hate desert.

Which is YOUR favorite world? And most-hated world?

Excel table – list of houses in each The Sims 3 world

Since I installed The Sims 3 in 2013 I compiled in Excel a table with all lots in every world. Database format: Lot address, Lot size, Lot name, Family name. Considering that I spent some time writing every lot (about 1 hour per world), and NO equivalent database is available on internet, I deserve one dollar for each world!

Note: in 2019 someone informed me that installing certain expansion packs can alter lots in each world, making my list of lots potentially inaccurate. I do not remember what expansion packs I had installed 6 years ago when I made this table.

Usually I used minimum expansions (I made list of lots in Sunset Valley and Riverview, then installed Ambitions to make list of lots in Twinbrook, then installed next expansion pack that add a world, etc). I think whenever not installing Ambitions may have altered lots in words from future expansion packs. I did not installed expansion / stuff packs that does not add worlds and I think that some may alter lots in existing worlds.

The Sims 3 career tracks

I compiled an Excel database with all career tracks and job positions, showing also job description, salary, work days, skills and responsibilities required, etc. Creating this Excel table was more difficult compared with The Sims 1 and 2, because The Sims 3 have careers some with 2 branches (paying hourly), professions (paying weekly) and part-time jobs, in total 49 careers and 482 job positions. Summary of salaries is shown in this table:

Excel file with job details

Even if The Sims 3 game is few years old, I did not made also a The Sims 3 career tracks as I made The Sims 2 career tracks in 2012, because of complexity of game: it have normal career tracks, skill career tracks, professions and part-time jobs. Some career tracks have 2 branches in higher levels.

If this was not worse enough, sims.fandom.com/wiki/Career_tracks looks messy (list of jobs is shown in different format from one career to another, some shows salary per hour and others per week – once I created Excel file I realized that this is because the ones with weekly salary are professions rather than careers) and is incomplete (some jobs do not indicate promotion bonus or pension).

Given by the fact that The Sims 1 & 2 career tracks became in 2019 the most visited pages on my The Sims sub-website, I decided to try to make a list of The Sims 3 career tracks… and found time for this task in January 2020. I may make for The Sims 4 afterwards.

It took me about 12 hours to copy-paste data from Sims Wiki into Excel and standardize format (as seen in below video). I am not responsible for any errors in Sims Wiki that I copied in my Excel. I do not have time to go in game and put sims in each job to check for possible errors.

The Sims 2 list of neighborhoods

The Sims 2 base game comes with 3 pre-made neighborhoods, with all expansion installed will be 6 pre-made neighborhoods, plus 8 pre-made sub-neighborhoods which can be linked to each neighborhood separately and visited (3 university campuses, 1 downtown, 1 shopping district, 3 vacation destinations). Total 14 pre-made neighborhoods with 350 lots. Additional 5 hidden neighborhoods do exist in game files and are used to generate NPC, they cannot be played.

Total lot value: calculated by making a total of the values shown when you enter lot and click “Lot Information” in top-left corner, this is how I was able to get value for community lots and apartment lots. But in university campus, dorms display $0 value and residential houses display rent value instead of built-up value.

SC4 templates

Which is the biggest neighborhood in The Sims 2? Most people say that IslaSegundo and Driftwood. Personally I say Isla Segundo, followed by Alpinoch and Driftwood. But… how do you define the “size” of a neighborhood? Longest roads, distance between roads, build-able space, or…?

I decided to count the length of roads. Results are shown in the following table:

Warning: the road length may not reflect apparent size of map. Maps with too close roads may look smaller, for example Veronaville. Also Strangetown having 2 parallel roads at 1 square apart, plus 3 side roads, looks a very small city. However all other maps have the roads at about 7-15 squares apart so a comparison using length of roads will be no problem.

Sedona have 4 roads going to map edges so the actual city is very small, while Alpinoch have only 1 road going to road edge so the city looks huge, would be nice map if it was not hilly.

IslaSegundo is the only one The Sims 2 map with no roads connecting the road edges, it also have longest roads so is definitely the BIGGEST map.

Note: All the photos shows lush or desert according default settings of game. All neighborhoods can be made lush, desert, dirt or concrete. Pleasantview SimCity terrain is different than the decorated Pleasantview. But as coincidence, road length is the same.

Which is my favorite neighborhood?

None of the above. ALL SUCKS!

Personally I prefer neighborhoods with roads close enough to be able to build everything and leave none or little space between houses, and with all “city” flat, surrounded by mountains and some water. The only neighborhood which partially match criteria is Pleasantview, but it is too small. So I usually build houses on better, player-made neighborhoods downloaded from ModTheSims.info, my favorites are the neighborhoods made by an user named Gethane.

Excel table – list of houses in all The Sims 2 neighborhoods

I compiled an Excel table with all lots in every neighborhood. Database format: Lot address, Lot size, Lot zoning, Lot value, Default lot value, Rent value, Family name, Family funds. Considering that I spent some time writing every lot (about 30 minutes hour per neighborhood), and NO equivalent database is available on internet, I deserve one dollar for each neighborhood!

Which is the best career track in The Sims 2?

This depend by lots of variables… no career is the best in all circumstances.

Number of work days vary from job to job, higher paying jobs may have less work days thus comparing jobs in terms of weekly earnings is difficult , but usually daily earnings matter more, because in the day of promotion you are getting a bonus double of daily salary.

The strategy to get rich depends also by which day of week promotion occurs. You may be promoted to a position having next days free, and while waiting next working day to get the next promotion, your adult Sim may turn into elder and get retired.

Military Career and Law Enforcement Career are have the highest pay at entry level jobs, thus being the best for a starter family with adults without skills.

Business Career (requiring charisma, logic, creativity) or Criminal Career (requiring mechanical, body, creativity) are the easiest careers for Sims that are in your family since child or teen. Because body, logic, creativity skills are usually earned automatically during childhood if you have a swimming pool, chess table or piano in the house.

Highest paid careers are the ones for University graduates: Artist, Natural Scientist, Paranormal, Show Business, but obviously these are hardest careers to reach the top position, as they require 4 skills instead of 3.

Natural Scientist – Ecological Guru have highest salary per day: $10.497, but only 1 work day per week.

Show Business – Icon is the highest paying job per week: $5.022 x 3 work days per week.

Advice for quick advancing in careers

Go to community lots to make skills, because Sims do not age unless they are at home (or you use cheat “aging -off“)

Is difficult to maintain large number of friends by playing a single family. You should play multiple families to make friends with the Sim you intend to reach top position in careers. I was able in this way to reach even level 10 (Mayor) in Politics which required 17 friends in The Sims 1. This in 2004 when I did not had internet connection and I had not many things to do thus could play The Sims for long periods of time, I compiled a table with the 10 career tracks in base game, by testing personally each job.

The Sims 2 introduced a cheat “boolprop testingcheatsenabled true” that, if entered while you are in neighborhood view, allow you once you open a lot to click the mood bars and friendship scores, quickly making friends.

Does anyone managed to reach top position in a career without cheating?

The Sims 1 neighborhoods and lots

The Sims 1 & 2 list of items

I compiled Excel tables with list of items in The Sims 1 (took about 15 hours) and The Sims 2 (took about 50 hours). Due to large amount of work spent making these stuff, and being probably the only person (or at least the first) who made such complete database of items in Sims games, I offer the database for paid download only.

List of items in The Sims 1:

List of items in The Sims 2:

History

In 2003 shortly after I got The Sims 1 (base game only), I created a list of items in Word (146 buy mode items and 111 build mode items). I don’t remember how long took, but probably many days, I had no internet connection, not many things to do on computer, so I wrote full description of every item in The Sims menus (314 items were in total). I was screenshoting every item in game, minimize game, paste in Paint and write in Word on half screen of 1024×768.

In 2012 I created in Excel a list of Buy / Build Mode items in The Sims 2, indicating their price and the expansion packs that add items, it took me about 50 hours to write 4500+ item names and prices, using all expansions installed, then I used AnyGameStarter to start expansions one by one and see what items are added by each one.

I considered a necessity to create this list because been playing The Sims 2 with all expansion packs installed and I wanted to know which expansion pack does add the items I am using, so I can build houses with AnyGameStarter with minimum expansion packs required. I did not included motives or description (as I did for The Sims 1) considering them unnecessary and extra effort needed.

In December 2019 I recreated list of items in The Sims 1 in Excel, this time using “The Sims 1 Complete Collection”, it took about 15 hours, in addition of this I copy-pasted the descriptions from ~350 base game items from the Word document I wrote in 2003. I did not wrote description for remaining items to save time. At same time I spent about 5 hours improving The Sims 2 list of items, adding motives and visually-enhanced table.

After finishing The Sims 2 list of items in 2012, I was thinking about making a similar database with The Sims 3 list of items, after its last expansion pack will be launched, if The Sims 2 list sells well, but this did not happened.

The work will be more complex in case of The Sims 3 than The Sims 1 and 2, because there are some items added by patches and not by expansion / stuff packs.

Lot size and price

I had this list in my computer since years ago, I did not considered useful but in June 2012 I noticed that a visitor landing on my website by searching “lot prices in sims 2“, so I posted the list of lot prices on website.

The cost of land in The Sims 2 is pretty crazy and does not follow a standard formula of price per square meter or feet.

1×1 – not available ($-400 downloaded)
1×2 – not available ($300 downloaded)
1×3 – $1.000 – Nightlife and newer ($900 downloaded)
1×4 – not available ($1.600 downloaded)
1×5 – not available ($2.200 downloaded)
1×6 – not available ($2.900 downloaded)
2×2 – $1.600 – Nightlife and newer
2×3 – $2.900 – Base game
2×4 – $4.200 – Nightlife and newer
2×5 – $5.500 – Nightlife and newer
2×6 – not available ($2.900 downloaded)
3×3 – $4.800 – Base game
3×4 – $6.800 – Base game
3×5 – $8.800 – Base game
3×6 – not available
4×4 – $9.400 – Base game
4×5 – $12.000 – Base game
4×6 – not available
5×5 – $15.200 – Base game
5×6 – $18.500 – Nightlife and newer

Prices of lots In The Sims 3 are standardized, $2 per square meter. The lots can have any size, no longer need to be multiply of 10. The largest lot available (64 x 64 squares) is $8192.

This is ridiculously cheap land, making land price max 10% of the lot price with house built up. In reality, no house is 10 times more expensive than the land where it sits. For realism, they shall make prices about $10 per square meter, a starter family with $20.000 could afford a 20×30 lot and will remain $14.000 to build the house, which is enough… and move to a larger lot when they are rich enough to build a palace.

Which is the best career track in The Sims 1?

The 10 base game careers have the top level salary inverse proportional with entry level salary. Entertainment career have lowest entry level salary and highest top level salary, Military career have highest entry level salary and lowest top level salary. At level 6 salaries are close apart, $500-550.

Livin’ Large, Unleashed and Superstar expansion packs add more careers which most of them follow the base game career rules: low entry level salary, high top level salary, but not all them.

Advice for quick advancing in careers

Is difficult to maintain over 10 simultaneous friends by playing a single family. You should play multiple families to make friends with the Sim you intend to reach top position in careers. I was able in this way to reach even level 10 (Mayor) in Politics which required 17 friends in The Sims 1. This in 2004 when I did not had internet connection and I had not many things to do thus could play The Sims for long periods of time, I compiled a table with the 10 career tracks in base game, by testing personally each job.
